WoF Recap: April 20, 2017

EPISODE #6594: WHEEL AROUND THE WORLD

$1K Tossup: ON THE MAP

C _ P _ / _ O _ N
_ O U T _ / _ _ _ I C A

Larina doesn’t say it immediately, but makes it in time w/ CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA. Who are Thursday’s players you might ask?

Larina McCoy: bank loan specialist who enjoys working w/ small businesses and has been on 15 different cruises from Charlotte, NC (orig. from NY)

John Stencel: mechanical engineer for 21 yrs. from Chicago

Gila Ogle: 7th Grade teacher at C12 Miami from Hollywood, FL

$2K Tossup: RHYME TIME

P A C _
_ / _ _ _ _ K

Gila rightly says “PACK A SNACK”.

TONIGHT’S smarTour: Germany worth $8K

Round 1: PHRASE

She first spins her way to a $500 S, six T’s for another $15K, six E’s, a $500 R, a single A, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to flush away $15,500. Larina then puts up a $1,200 pair of G’s, and a $2,700 N trio…

G E T T _ N G / T _ E
A T T E N T _ _ N
_ / _ E S E R _ E

I need to be GETTING THE ATTENTION I DESERVE and she’s won another $3,900, giving her a new total of $4,900.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Gila

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

All Larina here — she picks off a $1,200 pair of T’s, an $1,800 pair of S’s, three O’s, two A’s, a $600 R, a $650 Y, two E’s, an N for the MDW, an $800 C, the last vowel of U, a $500 H, and an F for the 1/2 CAR near $900.

_ O / Y O U / S _ E A _
F R E N C H
T O A S T

DO YOU SPEAK FRENCH TOAST, ma’am? Probably not, but that’s a $5,050 PR for her.

John: $0/Gila: $2K/Larina: $9,950 MDW 1/2 CAR

 

PP/Express Round: THINGS

Now that we finally get to hear from John, he starts us off w/ an $800 R, but then the other normal BANKRUPT. Second for Gila are a D for the WC, an $1,800 N trio, two A’s and E’s, two T’s for the same 1/2 CAR, but then the sole dud vowel of O. After the other players strike out w/ S and C, respectively, Gila buys the last vowel of U, but she BANKRUPTs near $650 to hand over $2,050 and the WC. Larina won’t take a chance…

N A T U R E / A N D
N I _ _ T _ I _ E

…she’ll enjoy NATURE AND NIGHTLIFE at the InterContinental San Juan in PUERTO RICO worth $8,400.

DUDS: O (Gila), S (Larina), C (John)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (those not named Larina)

John: HARD LUCK/Gila: $2K/Larina: $18,350 cash & P.R. MDW

 

$3K Tossup: PERSON

B O S _ _ / B U _ D Y

John the BOSOM BUDDY is scoreless no more.

Speed-Up: SONG TITLE

$1,650’s the FS value this time. Larina puts up a couple R’s midway, but she blows it w/ DON’T WORRY, MY DEAR. John then inserts the B…

D O N ‘ T / _ O R R _
B _ / _ _ _ _ _

…he solves Bobby McFerrin’s 1988 chart-topping one-hit wonder “DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY” for $3,300.

INSTA-DUD: S (John)

FINAL SCORES
John: $6,300/Gila: $2K/Larina: $18,350 cash & P.R. MDW

GT: $26,650
BANKRUPT TRASH: same as Larina’s pre-BR total

 

MILLION DOLLAR BONUS ROUND #10
Her boyfriend Isaiah is holding her potential key to a million. And the envelope she needs to take is the **.

Category: PERSON
Huey Lewis is one example of this…

_ _ R _ _ N _ _ _
_ L _ _ E R

We have another oddball combination for the second time this week — this time, it’s FYQA (she was thinking of FREQUENT FLYER, which makes NO sense at all)…

_ A R _ _ N _ _ A
_ L A Y E R

Even with the A’s, she doesn’t solve HARMONICA PLAYER. If the million is in there, we just made bad history of having both grand prizes lost in the same week…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WELL, ALMOST — IT WAS UNDER THE E IN GAME. She loses the $34K instead.
