Second, Katie lights up two R’s for the M.J. gift tag, two E’s, three A’s, a $650 N, and the last vowel of three I’s, but the BANKRUPT near $3,500 snatches $1,900 cash & shades.

Katie leads off w/ a $550 S, two E’s, but then T for terrible. Della’s second in line w/ a $900 N, but then a bad vowel of I. Third, Jeremy can’t board the EXPRESS w/ a dud in R.
