WoF Recap: May 3, 2017


$1K Tossup: FUN & GAMES

_ _ L A
_ _ N C _ _ G

Sarah would love to do some HULA DANCING or maybe these opponents…

Sarah Norton: medical speech language pathologist from Solana Beach, CA

Lonnell Grimes: barber instructor and music producer from Lancaster, CA

Cassandra White: elementary math coach who has two retired racing greyhounds from Delray Beach, FL

$2K Tossup: SHOW BIZ

C _ S _ / O F
C _ _ R _ C T E R S

Sarah knows that Pat & Vanna are amongst the CAST OF CHARACTERS on the stage.

TONIGHT’S HI TRIP: Ka’anapali Beach Hotel


But she says a quick dud in S. Second, Lonnell calls up a $500 T, five E’s, a $500 H, but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Third, Cassandra FPs a single I, picks up the WC w/ three R’s, but then loses her turn w/ the L. After Sarah BANKRUPTs near TD, Lonnell inserts a TD Y, buys the other two vowels, uncovers a $2,500 N, but the same normal BANKRUPT nails him to the tune of $5K. Next for Cassandra are a $500 D, but then M for mistake. Sarah then puts up a $1,400 pair of B’s…

R U B B E R / D U _ _ I E
Y O U ‘ R E / T H E / O N E

…she finally solves “RUBBER DUCKIE, YOU’RE THE ONE” (sung by Ernie from “Sesame Street”), and she’s up to $4,400.

DUDS: S (Sarah), A (Lonnell), L (Cassandra), M (Cassandra)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Lonnell, Sarah)


Crossword/Mystery Round: I’M ON TOP OF IT

Lonnell’s up first w/ a $700 R, but then a bad E buy. Cassandra secondly also strikes out w/ S. Third in Sarah’s favor are three L’s for $1,950, four O’s, but then the MDW’s left side to forfeit $1,700. Lonnell next spins his way to a W for that MDW, a $550 D, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to give up a grand and that sparkly green wedge. Cassandra then puts up an F for the HI trip, I and A singles to clean out the vowels, and a $650 V before she tries to complete this grid…

–   –   (_) – (W)(O)(R)(L)(D)
–   –   (I)    –    –   (O)
–    –  (L)  –    –   (F)

VOLCANO & HILL are…correct for her first $650 and the HI trip worth $7,055.

DUDS: E (Lonnell), S (Cassandra)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (same players from R1)

Cassandra: $7,705 cash & HI WC/Sarah: $4,400/Lonnell: ZIP



Cassandra opens w/ a $500 S, an E, an $800 R, three A’s, and two I’s, followed by a $650 T, a FP U to wipe out the vowel shop, four N’s for another $3,600, but then the BANKRUPT near $650 to forfeit $4,800 and her WC. After the other players land on the other normal one…

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


BANKRUPTS: 3 (whole panel)

Cassandra: $13,705 cash & HI/Sarah: $4,400/Lonnell: NO LUCK


$3K Tossup: PEOPLE

_ _ _ P Y
C _ _ _ _ _ S

Cassandra’s HAPPY CAMPERS back in FL will be pleased to hear that she’s solved another puzzle.

Speed-Up: FOOD & DRINK

$1,700 per consonant in this part of the game. Three T’s and two P’s in…

_ _ T / _ _ T T _ _ _ _
P _ P _ _ _ _

Sarah munches on some HOT BUTTERED POPCORN for another $3,400.

Cassandra: $16,705 cash & HI/Sarah: $7,800/Lonnell: $1K IN BAD LUCK

GT: $25,505
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. extras): $12,500


$100K Bonus Round
The P wedge has been landed on yet again (what are the odds of that being spun three nights in a row?).

Category: THINGS
Like Monday’s bonus puzzle, top word help is needed…

_ _ _ _ _
_ _ E E _ S

DKMO only adds the obvious K (so that rules out my first thought of PUDGY)…

_ _ _ _ _
_ _ E E K S

She doesn’t have PUFFY CHEEKS (and neither do I), so she also loses the Mustang convertible.

$5K SPIN ID: SF0685416

    Except for Cassandra winning 2 trips, this episode was crazy. And not in a good way.

    My rating: 5

      And I agree. Awful show. And I thought the BR solution was Fuzzy Cheeks. Needed an F to had any chance.

      My rating: Low 4.5
