Crossword/Mystery Round: I’M THIRSTY

Lauren’s initial picks are a $500 N, but then a baddie of R. Nizam secondly also duds out w/ T while he’s on the WC. Third, Deanna uncovers three FP A’s, a $650 S, two O’s, a $1,600 pair of L’s, and a D for that MDW.

    It was the battle between the women, but that BR was a real toughie. They’re really trying to get a skunk, huh?

    My rating: 6

    I really do hate seeing a male contestant named Nizam in the yellow podium win nothing on the show which is so disheartening but who knows for sure about that.
