This can also be classified as SAME LETTER, and Tammy has solved TERRIFIC TALLAHASSEE. Going down the line in meeting them…
Tammy Lombardi: country club beverage cart attendant from Valrico
Nathalie Medina: PR worker for major dept. store & photographer who’s a newlywed (they tied the knot in Orlando) from Miami
Karl Stahl: systems analyst and 20-yr. Navy vet from Key West
This is technically a “Great American State” week since all the players this week are from Florida, but it’s rather weird that the producers are offering trips to said state. Really? -_-

Nathalie solves COLORING BOOK.
FEATURED FL TRIP: Hawks Cay Resort (all of the FL trips this week will be worth $6,500)

And from what I’ve heard, if a FL trip is won like last night’s, it’s to the resort of the player’s choice.
Crossword Round: HEAD OVER HEELS
Nathalie kicks off w/ a $1,200 pair of R’s, O and A singles, a $1,300 pair of S’s, an I, but then N for negative on the GT. Second, Karl calls up a $1,400 pair of T’s, two E’s, three L’s for the GT, and a $1,300 pair of M’s before he tries to complete this grid…

SOLE DUD: N (Nathalie)
Mystery Round: LIVING THING
Karl starts w/ three R’s and turns down the $3K buyout for what’s under the MW near $650…$$$. Next up are a $700 S, four E’s, three T’s for the WC, two A’s, four G’s for another $2K, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to forfeit $13,700 and his WC. Tammy then puts up a $1,300 pair of N’s, and an O…

PP/Express Round: FOOD & DRINK
Tammy’s off and running w/ an $1,100 N pair, three E’s, three D’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900, two A’s, but then T for terrible. Second in Nathalie’s favor are a $500 W, three I’s, but then a not-so-victorious call of V. Karl then uncovers a $650 L, a C and two S’s to add $2,700, and three O’s before we see…

Her next search begins w/ a $600 R, two E’s, an $800 N, but then a worthless I. Second for Karl a $650 T, a $2,400 S trio, but then A for awful. After Tammy misses w/ H, Nathalie buys the two O’s…
