EPISODE #6564: BELLA ITALIA

$1K Tossup: PHRASE

T _ _ / G _ _ D

_ I _ E

Troy forgets the category and says the cancelled CBS drama “THE GOOD WIFE”. Brynn, however, could enjoy THE GOOD LIFE in Italy or maybe these opponents…

Brynn Frawley: global advocacy coordinator for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation from L.A. (orig. from Ventura County)

Troy Carter: working towards a degree in cybersecurity from Gilbertsville, PA (orig. from Newcastle, Australia)

Round 1: TITLE

She opens w/ three T’s for $1,800, five E’s, a $600 H, three O’s, and R for that MDW, and the last vowel of A, then she chooses a $600 F, a $600 L, three FP N’s, a $700 M, and a $700 W before the tries to solve all of this…

T H E / T W O
_ E N T L E M E N
O F / _ E R O N A

THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA results in a PR of $5,750, giving her $7,750 overall.

 

Crossword/Mystery Round: MOTHER _______

Brynn strikes out on the spot w/ S. Second, Troy calls up a $1,200 pair of N’s, three E’s, an H for the 1/2 CAR near $600, two A’s, and two U’s to clean out the vowels. Next up are a $600 T, three $550 R’s, a $1,400 B pair, and a $600 D to complete the grid…

(H)(U)(B)(B)(A)(R)(D)
(E)   /     /   /    /    /  (E)
(N)  /     /   /    / (N)(A)(T)(U)(R)(E)

…and win his first $5,200.

_ N C _ _ _ I E S

…he was able to solve ANCHOVIES.

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

The Aussie gets going w/ a $1K pair of N’s, a $550 G, an I, two E’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to lose $1,050 and his plate. Tanica secondly spins her way to a $600 R, three A’s, a $1,400 T pair, and three O’s to wipe out the vowel shop before the LaT strikes. Brynn thirdly puts up a J via EXPRESS and decides to pass (huh?). She then BANKRUPTs the same way Troy did to give back her grand. That man follows w/ a $2,100 H trio, but then the LaT. After Tanica falls victim to that same BANKRUPT to give up $1,500 and her MDW, Brynn puts up a $900 L, a $700 Y, and a FP F before she sees this…

E N J O Y I N G
T H E / _ A R _ T H
O F / A L O H A

…in addition to another $2,100, she’ll be ENJOYING THE WARMTH OF ALOHA at the Ka’anapali Beach Hotel in MAUI worth $6,487.

LaTs: 2 (those not named Brynn)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)

Tanica: $7,750/Brynn: $9,587 cash & Maui/Troy: $5,200

GT: $35,737
BANKRUPT TRASH (sans extras): $3,550

Category: PHRASE
Pretty good head start…

_ _ R E L _
_ _ _ E / _ T

DGHO only adds this…

_ _ R E L _
_ _ D E / _ T

…you thought he BARELY MADE IT w/ this final setup? You’d be DEAD WRONG — since he didn’t go w/ the First Four Letters strategy, he loses the $45K.

    Troy Did Well But $45,000 Would’ve Been Awfully Nice For Troy In The Bonus Round On Wheel
    And If Tanica Would’ve Hang On To The Million Dollar Wedge It Would’ve Been Exciting But Let’s Hope For The Million Dollar Wedge Being Picked Up By One Of These Contestants On The Next Night
