EPISODE #6607: SPA GETAWAY

$1K Tossup: WAYD?

_ _ K I _ _ / A
_ _ _ / _ A _ H

Kelly thinks it’s TAKING A HOT BATH (I thought of that, too)…not right.

T _ K I N _ / A
_ U D / _ A T H

Carrie says the even dirtier activity of  TAKING A MUD BATH. Greeting these ladies in order…

Carrie Tarzia: speech language pathologist for Boston Public Schools from Hingham, MA

Sheila Korsi: actress/singer/entertainer/songwriter as well as a legal assistant & a tutor from L.A. (orig. from Panama City in the Republic of Panama

Kelly Olone: Navy wife from Coronado, CA

$2K Tossup: THING

_ _ _ L T Y
P _ _ A S _ _ E

Kelly has her GUILTY PLEASURE.

TONIGHT’S SPA TRIP: St. James’s Club Morgan Bay in St. Lucia
Other Gift Tag of the Week: Bed, Bath & Beyond

Round 1: FOOD & DRINK

But she says a quick dud in R. Second, Carrie wastes a spin w/ the BANKRUPT near TD. Third, Sheila calls up an S for the Caribbean wedge, an $1,100 pair of T’s, four E’s, a $600 L, and an A, but next is the LaT. Back to Kelly who spins her way to an M for the BBB gift tag, a $1K pair of G’s, the remaining vowels of two I’s an an A, a $1K pair of H’s, an an $800 W. We have..

E G G / W H I T E
S _ I _ A _ H
O M E L E T

I’ve never eaten an EGG WHITE SPINACH OMELET, but she’s won another $3,800 cash & GT.

SOLE DUD: R (Kelly)
SOLE LaT: Sheila
SOLE BANKRUPT: Carrie

 

Mystery Round: BEFORE & AFTER

Carrie first captures a $1,300 pair of N’s, an E, but then T for trap. Sheila secondly uncovers a $3,500 G, buys an I, but LaTs out for the second time tonight. Kelly thirdly spots a $500 R, two A’s, an $800 D, and two C’s on the MW near $650 before she risks $1,050…SORRY. Carrie then puts up a $2K pair of K’s…

_ _ C K _
_ R E A K
D A N C I N G

…she’s doing her LUCKY BREAK DANCING for another $3,050.

SOLE DUD: T (Carrie)
SOLE LaT: Sheila
SOLE BANKRUPT: Kelly

Carrie: $4,050/Sheila: ZIP/Kelly: $5,800 cash & GT

 

PP/Express Round: PHRASE

Sheila’s first moves are a FP R, a couple A’s, but then the MDW’s left side to lose the other half of her $500. Kelly’s second in line w/ an S for the 1/2 CAR near $900, four E’s, but the other MDW BANKRUPT takes away $250 and her plate. Carrie then uncovers eight T’s for $5,200…

_ T / _ _ E S _ ‘ T
_ E T / _ E T T E R
T _ A _ / T _ A T

IT DOESN’T GET BETTER THAN THAT — she’s also won a trip to The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas in MAUI worth $10K.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Carrie’s opposition)

Carrie: $19,250 cash & HI/Sheila: ZILCH/Kelly: $5,800 cash & GT

 

$3K Tossup: CHARACTER

_ _ _ _ G _ _ _ B
S _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ S

Carrie nabs SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS to get over the $22K mark.

Round 4: AROUND THE HOUSE

She rattles off a $650 T, buys E and A singles, but the latter is the sole dud vowel of this puzzle. Second for Sheila are a $1,500 R trio, but then P for phooey while on TD. After Kelly BANKRUPTs near $650, Carrie plugs in a $5K M, buys I and O, but it’s S-U time…

_ _ _ _ – _ E _ _ T _
M I R R O R

…w/ a $1,700 FS. She then buys that last vowel of U (huh?)…

_ U _ _ – _ E _ _ T _
M I R R O R

…and gets out a FULL-LENGTH MIRROR for $4,650. Why she didn’t go for the L’s is beyond me.

DUDS: A (Carrie), P (Sheila)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Kelly

FINAL SCORES
Carrie: $26,900 cash & HI/Sheila: $1K GOOSEEGG/Kelly: $5,800 cash & GT

GT: $33,700
BANKRUPT TRASH (excl. plate and MW risk): $1,550

 

$100K Bonus Round
Carrie has landed on the W at the last split-second.

Category: PHRASE
Two letters on the bottom to start…

_ _ _ _
_ T / _ _ R _

CHKO might do it for her…

_ _ C K
_ T / _ O R K

We’re finally BACK AT WORK on giving away something in the BR, as she’s won the $34K for a final total of $60,900 cash & HI.

    Carrie did great. And that was actually a smart move of her for saying the U in the FS – she was already in the lead.

    But poor Sheila.
