TRIP WEDGE: Tanque Verde Ranch in AZ

Round 1: PLACE

Her first four choices all come in threes — T’s for $1,800, E’s, H’s for $1,950, and S’s for the Jordan’s Furniture. Next up are an A, two FP O’s, an R for the WC, but then the sole critical purchase of I to leave $6K cash & GT on the table. Brittany then calls up a $500 L, a $700 M, and the last vowel of U…

T H E / H U _ / O _ / T H E
S O L A R / S _ S T E M

…she locates THE HUB OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM for the house minimum.

SOLE DUD: I (Kianesha)

 

Crossword/Mystery Round: ______ CREAM

Brittany’s up first w/ a $700 S, but she LaTs out almost as quick. A.J. secondly takes a $7K pair of C’s, two E’s and I’s, a $1K pair of N’s, but the sole dud vowel of A stops him cold. After Kianesha LaTs out, Brittany puts up a $900 T, the other two vowels, an R for the MDW, and an $800 L. Grid…

(I)  –    –  (S)
(C)(O)(C)(O)(N)(U)(T)
(E)  –    – (U)
–   –    (_)(R)(I)(N)(_)(L)(E)

…she puts on some WRINKLE cream to keep that MDW and another $1,900.

SOLE DUD: A (A.J.)
LaTs: 2 (ladies)

Brittany: $2,900 MDW/A.J.: $1K/Kianesha: $2K WC

 

PP/Express Round: PHRASE (w/ an ! at the end)

A.J. leads off this crucial round w/ a $600 N, four T’s for another $2,200, an E, two O’s, four A’s, but the LaT nails him too. Kianesha hops aboard the EXPRESS after plugging in two H’s.

Next Choices: B…two S’s…M…two I’s…R…P…U…and W

She literally says this for $8,500…

I / J U S T / W O N
A / T R I P / T O
T H E / B A H A M A S !

…and she’ll be going to the SuperClubs Breezes worth $7,900.

SOLE LaT: A.J.

Brittany: $2,900 MDW/A.J.: $1K/Kianesha: $18,400 cash & trip WC

 

$3K Tossup: EVENT

R E _ _ A _ S A L
_ _ N N _ _

Kianesha’s solved REHEARSAL DINNER to be over the $21K mark.

Round 4: WAYD?

The next letters she rattles off are a $1,200 pair of N’s, two I’s, a $1,300 pair of T’s, an E, a $650 H, but here comes the S-U bells…

_ _ _ _ I N _ / _ _ _ _
T H E / _ _ _ T _ I N

…and we have a $1,500 FS. Two L’s are later chosen by the other lady…

_ _ L L I N G / _ _ _ _
T H E / _ _ R T _ I N

….Brittany’s PULLING BACK THE CURTAIN for $4,500.

DUDS (both in S-U): S (Kianesha) and D (A.J.)

FINAL SCORES
Brittany: $7,400/A.J.: $1K/Kianesha: $21,400 cash & trip WC

GT: $29,800
NO BANKRUPTS

 

$100K Bonus Round
Kianesha lands on the M in GAME.

Category: PHRASE
Almost half of the board already…

_ E _ _ R E
_ _ _ N

MHC aren’t there, but her vowel of A and her WC pick of D are…

_ E _ _ R E
D A _ N

Does she give us a BR win BEFORE DAWNYES and her reward’s the ’17 Camaro 2LT worth $33,290; that gives her a final total of $54,690 cash & prizes.

    For the second night in a row, another gentlemen in the yellow podium failed to win any more money after the opening toss-up but at least didn’t end up getting the pity $1k
