EPISODE #6591: WHEEL AROUND THE WORLD

$1K Tossup: THINGS

C _ A R G _ R S
& / A _ A _ T E R S

Jessi can’t get the last word.

C H A R G E R S
& / A D A _ T E R S

Tiffany just makes it in time w/ the right ones of CHARGERS & ADAPTERS. And she may need to bring those if she wins a trip tonight, or possibly these opponents…

Tiffany Jones: psychiatrist for a community mental health center on the suburbs of Cleveland who also plays the trombone from Solon, OH

Jessi Mattuchio: dental hygienist who’s part of an Italian family and one day wants to open her own vineyard/llama-walking experience from St. Albans, VT (orig. from Boston)

Dave Gaizler: assoc. acct. mgr. for a digital media co. who’s a Univ. of South Carolina alum from Seattle (orig. from Stamford, CT)

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ _ _ A D I A N

B _ _ O N

Jessi munches on some CANADIAN BACON.

WaTW WEDGE: Slovakia worth $7,500 (this is courtesy of smarTour)

Round 1: SONG LYRICS

Here she goes w/ a $1,200 pair of N’s, seven E’s, a $650 B, an I, a $1,300 pair of V’s, but the BANKRUPT near $650 takes away $2,650. Second, Dave FPs a single T, lights up an $1,800 pair of R’s, but then buys a worthless O. Tiffany then semi-spingles $500 Y and buys the last vowel of A…

I ‘ V E / B E E N
E V E R Y _ _ E R E
_ A N

…she solves Johnny Cash’s “I’VE BEEN EVERYWHERE MAN” for a $750 bonus and ties the other lady for the early lead.

DUDS (both by Dave): T & O
SOLE BANKRUPT: Jessi

 

Crossword/Mystery Round: WHICH WAY?

Dave’s at bat first w/ a $700 R, a $550 G, a $1,600 pair of H’s, an $1,800 T trio, and an I, after which he gets both 1/2 CARs w/ L and F, respectively (he got the one near $600 first), but then says a MAJOR DUD of N while on the Luggage Factory gift tag to leave $20,390 cash & Fiesta on the table. Tiffany then spingles for the last consonant of a $650 S…

    –  –   -(L)(_)(F)(T)
–  –   –    –  (_)
–    –  –    – (S)(_)(_)(T)(H)
(R)(I)(G)(H)(T)

She thinks LEFT, SOUTH and EAST are the remaining words…yes for another house minimum solve.

SOLE CRITICAL DUD: N (Dave)

 

PP/Express Round: WAYD?

All Tiffany here — she picks a $1,200 pair of G’s, two I’s, a $10,500 N trio, two O’s, a U, a $600 L, and three A’s.

L O U N G I N G / A _
_ _ _ / _ I A N O / _ A _

We have a PR — this lady has won another $11,300 and will be LOUNGING AT THE PIANO BAR at the Mango Bay Hotel in BARBADOS worth $9,100.

Dave: BAD SHAPE/Tiffany: $23,400 cash & trip/Jessi: $2K

 

$3K Tossup: PERSON

_ O _ _ / C L I _ B _R

Dave finally breaks through w/ ROCK CLIMBER.

Round 4: PHRASE

His next moves are a $500 T, three S’s for another $2,100, an A, a $600 N, four E’s, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to forfeit $2,700. Afterwards…

_ E T ‘ S / _ A _ E
S _ _ E / N _ _ S E

LET’S (not) MAKE SOME NOISE for Tiffany who solves for yet another house minimum (two M’s, ma’am), but she’s up to $24,400.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Dave

 

Speed-Up: SHOW BIZ

Consonants are worth $1,900 apiece. A V is lit up late…

L _ V _
P _ R _ _ R M _ N C _

Dave’s won another $3,800 in his LIVE PERFORMANCE.

AIRED DUDS: S (Dave), T (Tiffany)

FINAL SCORES
Dave: $6,800/Tiffany: $24,400 cash & trip/Jessi: $2K

GT: $33,200
BANKRUPT TRASH: $5,350

 

$100K Bonus Round
They’ve offered this car two seasons ago on this theme and it’s back this week — a 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. Tiffany lands on the potentially valuable ‘.

Category: THING
Here’s the third column of letters…

_ _ R _
_ _ R _

YCKO is an interesting combination…

_ _ R _
_ O R K

…she didn’t put enough HARD WORK into this because she only got the second word…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AND EVEN MORE UNFORTUNATE NEWS — SHE’S THE SEVENTH NAME ON THIS SEASON’S $100K LOSERS LIST. Still no grand prize win this year…

$5K SPIN ID: RS9932429

MY RATING: 5

(And I’ve marked Michael Taylor as a spammer so his tech. win comments won’t be able to go through.)

    As it was… We are trying to give a $100K in 2017. But more like it or not, we come up Empty. Disappointing show.

    So I see you’re taking steps to keep Michael Taylor out of this site so he cannot annoy us with his “technical win” malarkey, eh? Well, I think it’s a good idea to mark that spoiled brat as a spammer because I agree that he has a lot to think about.
