EPISODE #6566: AMERICA’S GAME

Unfortunately, we’re starting on the dreaded V8 set.

$1K Tossup: ON THE MAP

_ I C _ I T A
K A _ S _ _

Ambrosia locates WICHITA, KANSAS. Bios on her and everybody else…

Ambrosia Wilson: adult education literacy teacher & Spanish interpreter from Batesburg, SC

Stephanie Kirby: married for almost three decades from Camp Verde, AZ (orig. from West, TX)

Brett Tracy: assistant at talent agency & barista since he was 13 from L.A. (orig. from Seekonk, MA)

$2K Tossup: WAYD?

B E N _ I N G
_ _ E / _ _ L E S

Stephanie knows that she shouldn’t be BENDING THE RULES.

Round 1: CHARACTER

Her starting letters are a $500 T, two H’s to triple up, two E’s, but then S for sorry. Brett secondly calls up a $1,400 W pair, $600 singles in B, C and D, and an R for the WC. We have…

T H E / B _ _ / W H _
C R _ E D / W _ _ _

…he IDs THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF for $3,700.

SOLE DUD: S (Stephanie)

 

Crossword/Mystery Round: BREAKFAST _______

It’s all Brett here — he picks three T’s for $1,950, E and A singles, a P for the 1/2 CAR near $900, four O’s, a $650 S, two N’s for the river cruise wedge, an I, and a $500 B.

/  (N)  /    /    /    /   (_)
(P)(O)(T)(A)(T)(O)(E)(S)
/  (O)  /    /    /    /  (N)
/   (_)  /    /   /  (B)(_)(_)(_)(I)(T)(O)

…he correctly fills in NOOK, MENU and BURRITO for a PR of $3,600 and an American Empress river cruise worth $9,590.

Brett: $16,990 cash & cruise WC 1/2 CAR/Ambrosia: $1K/Stephanie: $2K

 

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Ambrosia leads off w/ a T for the lumosity gift tag (this is $ from the brain training company), two O’s, four R’s for $2,400, four E’s and A’s, and two U’s to clean out the vowels. Next on her list are a $650 S, a $900 M, a FP K, a Y for the same 1/2 CAR, a $650 D, a $1,200 pair of C’s, and a $1K pair of L’s before she tries to solve all of this…

M A K E / S U R E
T O / C L E A R
Y O U R/ C A L E _ D A R

We have another PR and MAKE SURE YO CLEAR YOUR CALENDAR, lady — you’ve won $8,300 and a trip to that Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort in CABO SAN LUCAS worth $7,380.

Brett: $16,990 cash & cruise WC/Ambrosia: $16,680 cash & MX/Stephanie: $2K

 

$3K Tossup: PERSON

_ _ U _ E N T
O F / H I S T _ _ Y

Ambrosia blows her chance to take the lead w/ MONUMENT OF HISTORY.

S _ U D E N T
O F / H I S T _ R Y

Brett seems to be a STUDENT OF HISTORY, so he’s $10 shy of $20K.

Speed-Up: EVENT

Consonants are worth $1,500 each. An L is said midway…

_ _ N _ _ _ N T _ L
_ _ C T _ R Y

…this is NOT a MONUMENTAL VICTORY for Brett, but he still makes the $6K solve for the match.

SOLE DUD: S (Stephanie)

FINAL SCORES
Brett: $25,990 cash & cruise WC/Ambrosia: $16,680 cash & MX/Stephanie: $2K

GT: $44,670
NO PENALTY SPINS!

 

$100K Bonus Round
The * is what the man must take.

Leading us off…

_ E T / _ _ _ _
T _ / _ _ S _ _ S

PGHO and D WON’T do much…

    Definitely one of the better V8 episodes (even if it’s a 6th show)…but not by much.
