Amanda’s SETTING THE TABLE.

Round 1: THINGS

She kicks off w/ an $1,100 pair of S’s, three E’s, two N’s for the Slots wedge, and two A’s; those are followed by an $1,800 T trio, an I, a $600 R, the other two vowels as singles, a $500 M, and three P’s for the WC (she jokingly tried to pick that up before calling that letter) before she tries to solve all of this…

_ A N _ / P U P P E T S
& / M A R I O N E T T E S

HAND PUPPETS & MARIONETTES is right for $15,250 and a new total of $17,250.

PR

Mystery/Crossword Round: DARK _______

Augustus’ journey to riches begins w/ a $500 T, but then N for negative on the Foodydirect gift tag. Jennifer secondly also duds out w/ D. Third, Amanda digs up a $1,400 pair of C’s, four O’s, and two H’s while on the MW near LaT. She risks her $1,150 and WC even though she jokingly said no…well, she ain’t gonna laugh at the BANKRUPT she just got. Augustus follows w/ two FP E’s, a $650 R, a $1,200 pair of S’s, a $600 L, a $700 M, and the last vowel of A’s, but here comes the BANKRUPT near TD to take away $3,400. Afterwards…

(H)(O)(R)(S)(E)   –    –    (A)
–     – (O)  –   –    –     –   (_)
(C)(H)(O)(C)(O)(L)(A)(T)(E)
–    –  (M) –   –     –    –   (S)

Jennifer complete grid w/ AGES to double her $1K.

DUDS: N (Augustus), D (Jennifer)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (both A’s)

PP/Express Round: FUN & GAMES

S for sorry is how Jennifer starts on the 1/2 CAR near $600. Down Amanda’s road second are a $1,950 N trio, but then a bad E buy. Third for Augustus are a $2,400 G trio, five I’s, but then the same BANKRUPT he got before to lose $2,150. After Jennifer hits the other normal one, Amanda proceeds to put up a $3,500 T, an A, but then L for loss. Next for Augustus are a $550 R, but then D for dud. Jennifer then spingles for the $600 B…

_ I _ I N G
B I _ I N G
R A _ T I N G

…she’ll be HIKING, BIKING (and) RAFTING on the COSTA RICA tour.

(Jennifer’s spingle was OK since we didn’t know whether BIKING would be the first or second in the list.)

DUDS: S (Jennifer), E (Amanda), L (Amanda), D (Augustus)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Augustus, Jennifer)

Augustus: NADA/Jennifer: $8,600 cash & tour/Amanda: $17,250

$3K Tossup: PROPER NAME

_ _ A R _ _ T T
_ _ _ _ N _ S _ N

Amanda IDs actress SCARLETT JOHANSSON to go over the $20K mark.

Speed-Up: RHYME TIME

$1,700’s the last FS of the week. Late in this round, Amanda buys four E’s for free, but she flubs w/ EAGLES & SEAGULLS. Augustus then puts up the twin G’s…

E A G L E S / &
_ E A G L E S

…he doesn’t sound confident w/ EAGLES & BEAGLES, but it’s right for his only $6,800 on the night.

AIRED DUDS: N (Amanda), D (Augustus), M (Jennifer)
SOLE DQ: Amanda’s botched solve

FINAL SCORES
Augustus: $6,800/Jennifer: $8,600 cash & tour/Amanda: $20,250

GT: $35,650
BANKRUPT TRASH (WC not factored): $6,700

$100K Bonus Round
Will the G envelope mean 100 of them for Amanda?

Category: THING
Nothing but three of the vowel to start…

_ / _ _ E _ E
_ _ / _ _ _ _ _ E

GHCA adds besides the obvious A…

A / _ _ E C E
_ _ / A _ _ _ C E

I’ve got A PIECE OF ADVICE for future contestants — talk it out here even if you’re not sure. As for Amanda…she gets the answer no problem and wins that Passat for a final total of $49,515 cash & car.

    Glad to see Augustus get some money on the board in the speed-up round which is really good because the more chances you play the harder it takes for you to get some money.
