Anthony’s trying to pull a Santoli and says “JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS”…sorry.
S _ _ _ E _ / _ E L _ S
S I L _ _ _ / _ _ L _ _
Loren has the right ones of “SILVER BELLS, SILVER BELLS”. Let’s start the interviewing w/ this man at the end…
Loren Inderbitzin: shift mgr. at a casino from Everett, WA
Calli Holley: healthcare consultant & animal shelter volunteer who finished her MBA at NYU from NYC
Anthony Williams: office coord. at a digital studio & writer who also goes to church at Central Ave. in Glendale from L.A. (orig. from Tyler)
$2K Tossup: THINGS
_ W A R D _ / A N _
_ _ R T _ _ I C _ T E S
Anthony’s correct this time w/ AWARDS AND CERTIFICATES.
Round 1: WAYD?
Here he goes w/ a $1,400 pair of N’s, an I, four E’s, the obvious $600 G, a single O, a $500 T, and three A’s to clean out the vowels. But after an H for the WC is the MDW’s right side to lose $2K and the WC. Second, Loren BANKRUPTs next to TD. Third, Calli calls up a $1,400 pair of R’s, a $900 S, but the other normal BANKRUPT takes away $2,300. Anthony then fills in the rest of the consonants w/ a $650 D, a $1,400 pair of P’s, a $550 W, an $800 C, and a $1K pair of L’s. This is what he’s doing for $4,400…
R E A D I N G
T H E / L O C A L
N E W S P A P E R
…he now has $6,400 to his credit.
BANKRUPTS: 3 (everybody)
Mystery/Crossword Round: GET OVER IT
Loren first says S for sorry on the 1/2 CAR near $600. Calli secondly takes a $1,300 pair of R’s, a $550 N, E and O singles, but then the BANKRUPT near TD to give back $1,350. Anthony thirdly gets the same MDW BANKRUPT he got before. After Loren LaTs out, Calli puts up a $1,400 pair of L’s, but she also gets that LaT. Anthony then puts up a $700 T, I and A singles, a $550 B, a W for the $10K prize wedge, and the last vowel of U before he tries to complete this grid…

Next up are a $900 F and L singles, but that same MDW BANKRUPT nails him for the third time tonight and costs him $4,200. After Loren LaTs out…
