EPISODE #6575: SOUTHERN CHARM

$1K Tossup: WAYD?

R E T U R N I N G
T H _ / _ _ _ O R

Ben’s hoping we’re RETURNING THE FAVOR in a good way after he solves this puzzle first among this end-of-week panel…

Ben Dombroski: HS math teacher & church youth sponsor from Quincy, IL

Amy West: office mgr. for a plumbing/drain cleaning co. from Milwaukie, OR

Annmarie Aiken: CPA accountant & aunt w/ NO children from Hempstead, NY (orig. from Jamaica)

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

S T _ _ D / U P
_ T _ _ I G _ _

Amy only gets the first line.

S T _ _ D / U P
_ T R _ I G _ T

Annmarie is able to STAND UP STRAIGHT.

LAST SOUTHERN CHARM TRIP: American Queen Steamboat Co. river cruise

Round 1: THING

All Annmarie here — she calls up two T’s for that MDW, a $650 N, two E’s, an R for the Southern Living $ GT, a $1,400 pair of S’s, a G for the WC, two O’s, and a U.

G E N E R O U S
_ O S _ _ T _ _ _ T _

We give her $3,300 for her GENEROUS HOSPITALITY, so she’s up to $5,300.

Mystery/Crossword Round: THINGS YOU RIDE

Ben’s off to a bad start w/ T. Second, Amy comes up w/ a $500 B, a FP I, a $900 K, three E’s, but then S for sorry. Third, Annmarie finds a $600 N, three A’s to clean out the vowels, $3,500 R and P singles (latter via the WC), and two L’s for the 1/2 CAR near $600, but next is a critical dud of H to leave $8,350 on the table. Ben then says a $500 M, a $900 C, and a W for the other 1/2 CAR

–  –  –   (B)  –  –    –  (W )
–   –  -(A)(I)(R)(P)(L)(A)(N)(E)
–   –    – (K) –    –   – (_)
(C)(A)(M)(E)(L) –   – (E)

…he rides a WAVE to another $1,900.

DUDS: T (Ben), S (Amy), H (Annmarie)

 

PP/Express Round: PEOPLE

Here goes Amy w/ a couple R’s for $1,100, a $1,600 S pair, three E’s, two A’s, but then F for flunk. Annmarie secondly picks a $1,500 N trio, but then L for loss on the 1/2 CAR near $900. Third for Ben are the T for the same 1/2 CAR Annmarie failed to get and the remaining vowels of I and four O’s before he tries to become the latest Fiesta winner…

he certainly is after solving VACATIONERS & HONEYMOONERS, but he’s also won a $7,800 trip to the Sandals Royal Bahamian in the BAHAMAS.

DUDS: F (Amy), L (Annmarie)

    I’m very upset and pissed off that Ben did not win! If he did win the $100k, it wouldn’t end up with a bang! We got to come back harder next week! No more losses!

    Though they can’t do this, Ben should be given $80,000 for getting “Point of my day” and have Pat keep the remaining $20,000.
