WoF Recap: April 21, 2017 — SHUTOUT ALERT #6

Even though this is our favorite theme week w/ all the clips from the international versions of the show, things are really taking a turn for the worse this week. Can someone salvage it on Lesley Sajak and Judy Friedman’s birthday?


$1K Tossup: ON THE MAP (one-liner alert)

M E _ _ _ O / C _ _ Y

We say si to Mike’s response of MEXICO CITY. Trying to save this week are…

Mike Bowers: this guy from North L.A. has lived all over the nation and loves karaoke

Sara Fowler: receptionist at a technology co. from San Diego (orig. from Kalamazoo)

Candi Gauff: former scholarship athlete at Florida State who’s the learning coach of a 13-yr.-old tennis player from Delray Beach, FL

$2K Tossup: FOOD & DRINK

_ R _ S P _

G A R L I _ / _ _ E _ D

Sara gets a piece of some CRISPY GARLIC BREAD.

FINAL smarTour OF THE WEEK: Greece worth $8K

Round 1: WAYD?

It’s all Sara — she calls up a $650 N, a $700 G, an I, four T’s for another $2,800, an E, three O’s, a $600 S, and the other two vowels.

_ U T T I N G / _ _
_ E S T / _ O O T

_ O _ _ A _ _

I’m PUTTING MY BEST FOOT FORWARD and so does she for another $3,500.



Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Candi’s off to a bad start w/ T on the MW near $650. Second, Mike’s lit up two N’s for the Luggage Factory gift tag, an A, a $1,200 pair of D’s, two E’s an an O, after which he says a $600 R, but then M for mistake. Sara then takes a $1K pair of C’s, an $800 V, a U, and a $1,400 pair of K’s before she…

_ E K _ N _
A N D / C O V E R

…wins another $2,950 in a little game of PEKING DUCK AND COVER.

DUDS: T (Candi), M (Mike)

Candi: NOTHING/Mike: $1K/Sara: $8,450



First on Mike’s list are a $900 S, but then T for terrible. Sara secondly also duds out w/ N. Third in Candi’s future are three R’s for $1,950, two E’s, an A, three O’s, and two C’s before she goes aboard the EXPRESS.

Current Bank: $3,200
Next Choices: three L’s and two F’s to clean out the consonants

C O L O R F _ L
C O R A L / R E E F S

…she’s won her first $8,200 and will see the COLORFUL CORAL REEFS at The Westin ST. MAARTEN Dawn Beach Resort worth $8,365.

DUDS: T (Mike), N (Sara)

Candi: $16,565 cash & trip/Mike: $1K/Sara: $8,450


$3K Tossup: THING

_ R A V E _
H A I R / D R Y E R

Mike gets out a TRAVEL HAIR DRYER to quadruple up.

Round 4: EVENT

Next from his mouth are a $700 S, a $650 T, three A’s, but then a worthless E buy. Second for Sara are three N’s for $2,400, the last vowels of O and three I’s, but then C for crud. After Candi goofs w/ L, Mike puts up the $1,400 H pair…

_ I N I S H I N _
A / _ A _ A T H O N

…he solves FINISHING A MARATHON for $2,250.

DUDS: E (Mike), C (Sara), L (Candi)

Candi: $16,565 cash & trip/Mike: $6,250/Sara: $8,450

Speed-Up: PERSON

$1,900’s the last FS of the week. The D appears on the bottom…

P _ R T – T _ M _

Candi: $16,565 cash & trip/Mike: $10,050/Sara: $8,450

$100K Bonus Round
Candi almost hits that E of GAME, but it hangs on to the **.

Category: THING
Opening layout…

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

CDGO will NOT do much besides the obvious G…

_ L _ C _ E R _ N G
_ _ L _

The FLICKERING BULB in her head…has burned out, so we’ve been SKUNKED for the fourth time this season (my fears of this week becoming a carbon copy of “Show You the World” were realized)…

























































…AND ADDING INSULT TO INJURY, SHE’S THE OTHER $100,000 LOSER THIS WEEK — THAT’S THE FIFTH TIME IN HISTORY WE HAVE TWO SUCH LOSSES IN A SINGLE WEEK (previous was S29’s Big Money Week in March 2012 w/ the big losses on Tues. and Fri.). Get out the Advil again, people.

    If this is the disastarous week, then let it be. WORST. EPISODE. AND. WORST. WEEK. EVER. 2 $100K losses puts us in danger of tying the record of $100K losses of 11.

    I Agree Especially Larina McCoy From Last Night 1 Away from winning the million and missing out on winning $100,000 was painful and that hurts bad,

    OK, that was just PAINFUL.

    My rating: 5

    2 $100,000 losses in two weeks. Worst bonus round and episode ever. Next week, we cannot have another losses. This will and cannot happen again.

    And the essence of Julian Batts lingers on…
