WoF Recap: May 5, 2017 — SHUTOUT ALERT #7


$1K Tossup: PLACES

W H _ _ _ / _ A _ D
B _ A C _ _ S

Sara could be seeing WHITE SAND BEACHES or possibly…

Sara Bacchetta: human services specialist at a county welfare agency who’s in the process of getting her Master’s in Social Work from Succasunna, NJ

Jared Foshe: full-time undergrad student at Cal State Dominguez Hills majoring in Computer Technology & planning to graduate in December (he also played baseball) from Redondo Beach

Emily Yeh: sales mgr. married to Robert for 15 yrs. (they’ve taken the kids to Europe & Hawaii) from Pleasanton, CA

$2K Tossup: PEOPLE

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

Jared from this group of TOTAL STRANGERS has solved this.

FINAL HAWAII TRIP: Outrigger Waikiki

Round 1: PHRASE

He picks up that trip right away w/ three N’s, buys three I’s, and calls up the obvious two G’s for $1,100, after which come two O’s, an A, a $600 D, a $900 L, a $700 M, the last vowel of E, but then a CRITICAL DUD of R to leave $11,579 in cash & trip sitting there. Emily then says a $1K pair of T’s…

_ I T T I N G / O N
A / G O L D / M I N E

…she was SITTING ON A GOLD MINE to get on the board.

SOLE DUD: R (Jared)


Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Emily’s up first w/ a $1,200 pair of D’s, five A’s, a $1,300 pair of N’s, but then the MDW’s left side to lose $2,250. Sara secondly digs up two S’s for the 1/2 CAR near $900, but the sole dud vowel of E stops her. Jared thirdly lights up an L on the MW near LaT and takes the obvious gamble…NOTHING THERE. Emily then uncovers an $1,800 pair of M’s…

M A _ A D A M _ A
N _ _ S
A N D / _ _ L _ S

…she has the MACADAMIA NUTS AND BOLTS to inch up to $2,800.

SOLE DUD: E (Sara)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Emily and Jared)


PP/Express Round: FUN & GAMES

First on Sara’s path are an S on the other 1/2 CAR, but the BANKRUPT near TD nails her just as quick. Second in Jared’s future are a $1,600 pair of T’s, a couple E’s, but then the other normal BANKRUPT to hand over $1,350. Emily’s third in line w/ a $1K pair of R’s, two A’s, a $1,400 pair of W’s, three I’s, but then the LaT. Sara decides to just solve (I would NOT have done that)…

W A _ I _ _ / I _
T _ R _ _ _ I S E

…she’ll be WADING IN TURQUOISE WATER at the InterContinental San Juan in PUERTO RICO worth $8,400.

SOLE LaT: Emily
BANKRUPTS: 2 (everyone else)

Emily: $2,800/Sara: $9,400 cash & P.R./Jared: $2K


$3K Tossup: EVENT

T _ L _ _ T
S _ _ R C _

Emily solves TALENT SEARCH.

Round 4: THING

Coming from her mouth next are a $700 T, an E, an $800 R, but then the sole dud vowel of A for awful. Second for Sara are four S’s for two grand, three O’s, a $1K P pair and three I’s…

_ _ S I _ E S S
P R O P O S I T I O _

…she made a $2,500 BUSINESS PROPOSITION, though she left out the N’s again.

SOLE DUD: A (Emily)

Emily: $5,800/Sara: $11,900 cash & P.R./Jared: $2K


N for negative is how the middle lady starts. Jared’s second in line w/ a $700 T, two E’s, a $650 R, but then the S-U signal…

_ _ E / _ _ _ E
T R _ _ _ / & / _ _ _ _ _

…w/ another $1,700 FS. The D is said late…

_ _ E / _ _ _ E
T R _ Y S / & / M _ L D S

Emily makes it in the nick of time w/ ICE CUBE TRAYS & MOLDS for $3,400.

SOLE DUD BEFORE FS: N (Sara, repeated by Emily in S-U mode)
DUDS IN S-U: H (Jared), K (Jared)

Emily: $9,200/Sara: $11,900 cash & P.R./Jared: $2K

GT: $23,100
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. plate and MW risk): $4,100


$100K Bonus Round
Will the W mean a win for Sara?

Category: THING
Not much RSTLNE help in this one…

_ _ _ E _
R _ _ _ _ _ _

GHDO gives her…

_ _ _ E D
R O _ D _ _ _

but she only gets the second word, so we’ve been SKUNKED for the fifth time this season and she won’t escaping via the PAVED ROADWAY(s) w/ the $34K. BTW, this is the SECOND TOTAL WASHOUT on a taping day this season.

$5K SPIN ID: DM7603007 (I like the last three numbers of that)
