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?

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

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 / _ _

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

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)…

    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.

    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.
