EPISODE #6609: SPA GETAWAY

$1K Tossup: WAYD?

_ _ _ T I N _
C O M _ _ _ _ _ _ L E

Amanda’s GETTING COMFORTABLE and so are these other women…

Amanda Peters: senior account mgr. for an advertising agency that specializes in food from Lenox, IL

Alice O’Connor: former administrator in higher education at a university from Holderness, NH

Latoya Walsh: teacher’s assistant at Palm Cove Elementary from Miramar, FL

$2K Tossup: PHRASE

B _ / _ _ I L L
M _ / _ _ _ _ T

BE STILL MY HEART, Alice is correct.

TONIGHT’S SPA TRIP: Pineapple Beach Club in Antigua

Round 1: FOOD & DRINK

T for terrible is how she starts. Second, Latoya calls up a $1,400 pair of S’s, and buys three E’s, two A’s and two O’s to clean out the vowels in one sitting. Next up are four R’s for $2,600, and a $700 B before she sees this…

_ R A _ B E R R _
O R A _ _ E
S _ O _ E S

…but she blows the $3,950 solve w/ CRANBERRY ORANGE S‘MORES, because there was no ‘ on the board. Amanda’s next w/ a $1,400 pair of C’s and an $1,800 N trio…

C R A N B E R R _
O R A N _ E
S C O N E S

…these CRANBERRY ORANGE SCONES are worth another $3,200 to her.

INSTA-DUD: T (Alice)
SOLE DQ: Latoya’s blown solve

Crossword/Mystery Round: GOT MILK?

Latoya wastes a turn w/ the BANKRUPT near $650. Amanda secondly uncovers a $600 C, but buys a worthless E. Third, Alice picks up the 1/2 CAR near $600 w/ an R, but the other normal BANKRUPT takes that and the $500 right back. On Latoya’s second turn, she spins her way to two FP O’s, a $1,200 pair of G’s, A and I singles to clean out the vowels, a $650 T, a $700 N, a $650 M, a $1,200 pair of S’s, and a K on the MW near LaT before she declines (I think that was the BANKRUPT one). Here’s the near-complete grid…

–    –    – (G) –  (S)
(S) –    – (O) –  (K)
(O)(R)(G)(A)(N)(I)(C)
(_)  –    – (T)  – (M)

SOY is the last milk variety for $4,900.

SOLE DUD: E (Amanda)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (everyone else)

Alice: $2K/Latoya: $4,900/Amanda: $4,200

Classic Bonus Puzzle (1998): THING
CDMI was chosen…

_ _ R M _ N I C _

…but HARMONICA wasn’t even solved.

PP/Express Round: THINGS

Amanda leads off w/ a pair of FP T’s, two E’s and A’s, and two R’s via EXPRESS before she GOES ABOARD.

Current Bank: $2,500
Next Choices: P…two S’s…two C’s…two L’s…CRASH w/ O (she loses $9,500)

Second, Alice strikes out w/ D on the same 1/2 CAR. Third in line, Latoya uncovers a $900 Y, buys the other two good vowels, FPs a dud of N and loses her turn for good w/ H. Afterwards…

T R U L Y
S P E C T A C U L A R
_ I E _ S

Amanda wins a $6,478 trip to a place where she’ll enjoy the TRULY SPECTACULAR VIEWS — the InterContinental Presidente CANCUN Resort.

NON-BANKRUPT DUDS: D (Alice), N (Latoya), H (Latoya)
SOLE BANKRUPT: O (Amanda)

Alice: $2K/Latoya: $4,900/Amanda: $10,678 cash & Cancun

$3K Tossup: PROPER NAME

T _ _
S _ _ L E _ K

Amanda IDs former “Magnum P.I.” star TOM SELLECK.

Round 4: PERSON

She rattles off a $1,300 pair of T’s, four E’s and an A to quickly wipe out the vowel shop, but then S for sorry, and it’s S-U time…

_ E _ _ E _ T
_ E _ T _ E _ A _

…w/ a $1,500 FS. The G is later uncovered…

P E R _ E _ T
G E N T _ E _ A N

Alice will share another three grand w/ her PERFECT GENTLEMAN.

SOLE DUD (before FS): S (Amanda)

FINAL SCORES
Alice: $5K/Latoya: $4,900/Amanda: $13,678 cash & Cancun

GT: $23,578
BANKRUPT TRASH (minus plate): $10K

$100K Bonus Round
The * envelope is what Amanda needs to take.

Category: ON THE MAP
The RSTLNE can only provide…

_ _ _ _ _ L _
_ N _ / _ T _ _ _ _

PGHO is also of limited help…

_ _ _ _ _ L O
_ N _ / _ T H _ _ _

She wasn’t even close to pinpointing the New York cities of BUFFALO AND ITHACA for $34K.

SWEEPSTAKES PUZZLE: SOAKING IN THE TUB
