WoF Recap: April 25, 2017


$1K Tossup: PLACE

T E R R I _ I _
T _ L _ _ _ A S S _ E

This can also be classified as SAME LETTER, and Tammy has solved TERRIFIC TALLAHASSEE. Going down the line in meeting them…

Tammy Lombardi: country club beverage cart attendant from Valrico

Nathalie Medina: PR worker for major dept. store & photographer who’s a newlywed (they tied the knot in Orlando) from Miami

Karl Stahl: systems analyst and 20-yr. Navy vet from Key West

This is technically a “Great American State” week since all the players this week are from Florida, but it’s rather weird that the producers are offering trips to said state. Really? -_-

$2K Tossup: THING

_ _ L _ _ _ _ G
_ O _ K

Nathalie solves COLORING BOOK.

FEATURED FL TRIP: Hawks Cay Resort (all of the FL trips this week will be worth $6,500)
Tues./Thurs. Gift Tag: SwimOutlet.com

And from what I’ve heard, if a FL trip is won like last night’s, it’s to the resort of the player’s choice.

Crossword Round: HEAD OVER HEELS

Nathalie kicks off w/ a $1,200 pair of R’s, O and A singles, a $1,300 pair of S’s, an I, but then N for negative on the GT. Second, Karl calls up a $1,400 pair of T’s, two E’s, three L’s for the GT, and a $1,300 pair of M’s before he tries to complete this grid…

–   –    –    – (R)  –     –    –   –    – (_)
–    –   –  (S)(O)(M)(E)(R)(S)(A)(_)(L)(T)
–    –   –     -(L)  –     –    –   –    –  (I)
(T)(_)(M)(_)(L)(E)   –    –   –     –  (_)

SOMERSAULT, TUMBLE & FLIP are the remaining words for $4,950 cash & GT.

SOLE DUD: N (Nathalie)


Mystery Round: LIVING THING

Karl starts w/ three R’s and turns down the $3K buyout for what’s under the MW near $650$$$. Next up are a $700 S, four E’s, three T’s for the WC, two A’s, four G’s for another $2K, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to forfeit $13,700 and his WC. Tammy then puts up a $1,300 pair of N’s, and an O…

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

…should’ve gone for the L’s, ma’am — she solves GOLDEN RETRIEVER WAGGING ITS TAIL to inch up to $2,050.



PP/Express Round: FOOD & DRINK

Tammy’s off and running w/ an $1,100 N pair, three E’s, three D’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900, two A’s, but then T for terrible. Second in Nathalie’s favor are a $500 W, three I’s, but then a not-so-victorious call of V. Karl then uncovers a $650 L, a C and two S’s to add $2,700, and three O’s before we see…

D E L I C I O _ S / W I N E
A N D / S E A _ O O D

…he makes the $3,100 solve and will have DELICIOUS WINE AND SEAFOOD in LA RIOJA, SPAIN worth $7,375.

DUDS: T (Tammy), V (Nathalie)

Tammy: $2,050/Nathalie: $2K/Karl: $15,425 cash & prizes


$3K Tossup: PHRASE

_ _ _ / M O _ E N T
O _ / _ R _ T H

THE MOMENT OF TRUTH might be coming for Karl, but it’s Nathalie who solves this one.


Her next search begins w/ a $600 R, two E’s, an $800 N, but then a worthless I. Second for Karl a $650 T, a $2,400 S trio, but then A for awful. After Tammy misses w/ H, Nathalie buys the two O’s…

N O O _ _ E S / &
S T R _ _ E _ S

…more consonativity here — she solves NOODLES & STRUDELS.

DUDS: I (Nathalie), A (Karl), H (Tammy)

Tammy: $2,050/Nathalie: $6K/Karl: $15,425 cash & prizes

Speed-Up: WAYD?

It’s a $1,650 FS. Two R’s are said by somebody…

_ _ _ _ N G
R _ S _ R _ _ T _ _ N S

Tammy’s won another $4,950 towards MAKING RESERVATIONS.

Tammy: $7K/Nathalie: $6K/Karl: $15,425 cash & prizes

GT: $28,425
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. WC): $13,700


$100K Bonus Round
Here comes the E in GAME for Karl.

Category: PHRASE
This should be easy…

_ _ _ N / T _ E
_ _ R T _

PYMA fills in…

_ _ _ N / T _ E

…the entire bottom word…but he still doesn’t know the first, so he won’t JOIN THE PARTY of those who won $34K.

$5K SPIN ID: CK3516336

    A very disappointing show. 7th straight BR loss in a row and now 101st BR loss so far.

    My rating: Low 5. (Andy, there were over 130 losses last season, we seriously need a BR win)

    Another meh episode.

    My rating: 6

    With seven Bonus Round losses in a row, I’m starting to worry and fear that our current BR losing streak might make it into double-digit territory.
