Round 1: PEOPLE
But she insta-BANKRUPTs next to $650. Second, Jeremy calls up two T’s for the GT, five A’s and two E’s, a $1,400 S pair, an $1,800 R trio, the other three vowels, and four C’s for that WC. We have…

…he gets A PECULIAR CAST OF CHARACTERS for $5,950 cash & GT.
Mystery Round: BEST SELLER
But that man quickly loses his WC to the BANKRUPT near TD. Second, Lisa chooses three FP E’s, a $650 T, a single A, an H as in the Halloween wedge (Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites from Destination Salem), three I’s, a $600 S, a $3,500 L, a single O, and a $650 M before she lights up a D on the MW near $650 and turns it down. Unfortunately, her very next call of P is a CRITICAL DUD, so she’ll probably give back $6,150 plus that Salem trip. Monica then picks off a $700 R, two U’s, and a $500 Z…

PP/Express Round: WAYW?
The scoreless Lisa tries to redeem herself here w/ a $1,300 pair of S’s, three A’s, but then R for roadblock. Second, Monica LaTs out. Third, Jeremy FPs four E’s to quickly clean out the vowel shop, lights up a $700 N, but then says D for dud. On Lisa’s second turn, she hits the MDW’s right side to lose $1,050 (we get a shot of Jim after Pat compliments his attire). After Monica says T for terrible, Jeremy inserts a $2,100 L trio…

Round 4: PHRASE
The T fails her again right from the get-go. Jeremy secondly picks a $550 N, a single A, a $500 S, two I’s, but then a worthless O. Third for Lisa are a $600 L, two E’s to finish off the vowels, an $800 K, a $600 C, a $500 Y, and a $1,400 pair of C’s…
