Scott did his PROPER INTRODUCTION, so his money’s tripled.
And it looks like the Slots wedge is gonna be here all week long even though this isn’t Big Money week.
Round 1: HEADLINE
He opens w/ four T’s for $2,400, two E’s, a $1,400 pair of S’s, two O’s, two H’s for the Foodydirect gift tag, four I’s, and a $1,200 pair of P’s before he tries to solve…
P _ T _ I O T S / _ I _
T H E I _ / _ I _ T H
S _ P E _ / _ O _ _
…but he gets the fourth word wrong w/ PATRIOTS WIN THEIR SIXTH SUPER BOWL, so that will probably cost him $5,750 cash & GT. Lauren then puts up a FP A, two F’s for the WC, and a $1,500 R trio…
P A T R I O T S / _ I _
T H E I R / F I F T H
S _ P E R / _ O _ _
…she capitalizes for $2,500 w/ “PATRIOTS WIN THEIR FIFTH SUPER BOWL”.
SOLE DQ: Scott’s missolve
Mystery Round: SAME NAME
Lauren first loses her WC to the MDW’s right side. Shaun secondly comes up w/ a $1,300 pair of T’s, E and A singles, and an R on the MW near $650. She risks the $800 remainder for…NOTHING. Third, Scott picks up that MDW only to give it right back to the BANKRUPT near $650. Lauren tries again w/ an $800 N, but the sole dud vowel of O stops her. Shaun next picks a $500 Y, buys the other two vowels, but the same normal BANKRUPT strikes again. After Scott LaTs out, Lauren puts up an $1,800 pair of L’s, a $500 D, but the LaT nails her. Shaun then decides to just solve…

Next Choices: two S’s…T…CRASH w/ M (she loses $6,400)
Scott then fills in a $500 G, two U’s, and a $1,500 C’s to clean out the consonants…
