WoF Recap: April 5, 2017



_ _ _ _ _ / F A _ _ _ Y
R _ B _ _ _ _ _

I’ve never watched this classic live-action Disney movie, but Diana has seen “SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON” (there’s a treehouse attraction at WDW). Midweek couples go by these names…

Diana & Dick Graham (36 yrs.): she’s a seven-yr. breast cancer survivor while he’s a retired state trooper; they’re from MD

Dennis & Marsha Ladd (16 yrs.): he’s a retired firefighter; they’re from Chesterfield, MI

Vicki Neider & Ron Akin: she’s a realtor while he’s an electrical contractor for 32 yrs.; they’re from Paso Robles

(I got the yellow couple’s last names from a facebook post by KSBY, their local affiliate that broadcasts this show.)

$5K SPIN ID: MM3329558

$2K Tossup: PERSON

_ H _ T / S P E C I A L
_ O _ E O N E

Diana is THAT SPECIAL SOMEONE who triples her team’s bank.

Round 1: FUN & GAMES

It’s all the Grahams — they call up three T’s for $1,800, an I, two S’s for the WDW trip, a $700 L, three E’s, a $1,500 N trio, a $500 G, and three A’s.

S E T T I N G / _ _ / A
L E _ _ N A _ E / S T A N _

They solve SETTING UP A LEMONADE STAND for $14,171 cash & trip, and a new overall total of $17,171.



Mystery Round: SAME LETTER

The Ladds are up first w/ a $700 T, four R’s for the RICARDO luggage, a single A, but then the sole dud vowel of E. Second, the Akins waste a spin w/ the BANKRUPT near $650. Third, the Grahams come up w/ the SL bonus of four $900 C’s, an O, a $1,300 pair of S’s, and the last vowel of U, but the same normal BANKRUPT takes away $5,400…

C R _ S _ _
C R U _ C _ _

…and the Ladds have munched on some CRISPY, CRUNCHY CARROTS for $3,200 cash & luggage.

SOLE DUD: E (Ladds)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (other couples)


PP/Express Round: PHRASE

S for sorry is how the Akins start. The Grahams are second in live w/ five T’s for $3,250, three A’s, an O, a $1K pair of C’s, a $1,950 N trio, two I’s, a $500 W, and three E’s to clean out the vowels. Next up are a $1,600 pair of H’s and three L’s on the EXPRESS, but they surprisingly decline (wha?). And they’re gonna regret it, because they then land on the MDW’s right side to forfeit $10,300. Afterwards…

C A N ‘ T / W A I T
T O / T E L L / T H E
_ A N _ C H I L _ _ E N

Dennis CAN’T WAIT TO TELL THE GRANDCHILDREN that his family will be going to DISNEYLAND (this one has a “Cars” experience) worth $9,090.

SOLE DUD: S (Akins)

Ladds: $12,290 cash & Disneyland/Akins: HARD LUCK/Grahams: $17,171 cash & WDW


$3K Tossup: THING

O U _ / F A _ _ R I _ E
_ _ O W

The Ladds rightly say that this is OUR FAVORITE SHOW.

Speed-Up: WAYD?

$1,700 per consonant in this part of the game. An H is said late…

_ _ N _ S H _ N G
S T R _ N G

The Akins are FINISHING STRONG for their only $6,800 on the night.

DUDS: C (Grahams), B (Ladds)

Ladds: $15,290 cash & Disneyland/Akins: $6,800/Grahams: $17,171 cash & WDW

GT: $39,261


$100K Bonus Round
Diana lands on the W.

Category: THING
RSTLNE reveals…

_ _ _ R _ _ _ N _
N _ _

GMHI causes me to stick a fork in them…

_ _ _ R _ _ I N G
N _ _

…and we won’t be giving them an APPROVING NOD for $34K.

    I can’t believe the Grahams didn’t hop aboard the Express. Could’ve won by a MUCH bigger margin. But the BR was a real toughie.

    My rating: 6

    Agree but this sure wasn’t a good episode especially with that big Bankrupt Trash of over $15K and a BR loss to summon it all up.

    My rating: 4.5

    Glad to see the Akins finally win some cash in the speed-up after not having that many chances to play which is a good thing to say the least
