Jeannine is correct this time w/ PEARL EARRINGS.
TONIGHT’S HI TRIP: Hilton Waikoloa Village
Crossword Round: DREAMS
She opens w/ a $550 T, three E’s, an $800 S, two A’s, a W as in the WILD CARD, and the last vowel of I, but she then duds out w/ L. Second, Paul calls up a $650 R, $600 singles in M, C and N, but then B for bad. Third, Cindy spins her way to a $600 Y, a $500 D, but then a not-so-victorious call of V on the Perfumania gift tag. Jeannine then completes the grid w/ a $1,600 pair of P’s…
(D) – – (P)
(Y) – – (P)
– – (S)(W)(E)(E)(T)
…and reads them for another $2,700.
DUDS: L (Jeannine), B (Paul), V (Cindy)
Mystery Round: EVENTS
Here goes w/ Paul w/ four T’s for $2,600, three E’s, but then R for roadblock. Cindy secondly takes a $650 H, buys A and I singles, but then BANKRUPTs near $650 to lose the $150 remainder. Jeannine thirdly uncovers a $500 L, the other two vowels, a $600 F, and four S’s for another $3,200. We have at this moment…
T H E / _ O S T
_ E A U T I F U L
S U _ S E T S
Too bad this is NOT designated the Prize Puzzle, but she solves THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS for another $3,800.
SOLE DUD: R (Paul)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Cindy
Paul: NIL/Cindy: $1K/Jeannine: $8,500 WC
PP/Express Round: WAYD?
Cindy’s path here is made up of a $1,200 pair of N’s, two I’s, the obvious twin G’s for $1,600, but then a baddie in O. Second for Jeannine are two T’s for the gift tag, six A’s, but then the LaT. Third in line, Paul wastes a turn w/ the BANKRUPT near $650. Cindy’s second turn ends quickly w/ the other normal BANKRUPT to lose $2,300. Jeannine next hits the same BANKRUPT Paul got to forfeit $1,750 and her WC. That man follows w/ his second straight BANKRUPT (MDW’s left side). After Cindy LaTs out, Jeannine says two C’s and boards the EXPRESS.
Next Choices: Z…two S’s…E (last vowel)…L…P…two D’s…M…R to complete the board.
This lady reads this for $10,750…
