WoF Quickcap: 9/21/2022

Midweek left-to-right trio
Renee Walsh, a beach person married to Jim for 23 years from Oakhurst, NJ
Jacqueline Mayuga, a gym rat who’s been training for power lifting for almost six months (her first competition is coming up soon) from San Bernardino, CA
Tanino Privitera, a man who speaks four languages and has a mom who’s an Italian immigrant (she watches the show religiously but never solves a puzzle) from Cave Creek, AZ

Final Scores: Renee: $9,900/Jacqueline: $11,100 cash & Maui/Tanino$17,450 cash & CA

GT: $38,450
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash: $2,700 + MDW

Scary moments (oh brother…)

-We had a NULL CYCLE left intact in R1.

-Also the R1 puzzle (WARM WET & WILD) got many reactions from viewers seeing it as NSFW as seen HERE (This article (courtesy of @adamrocks05259) also misspelled Tanino’s last name as confirmed by CC and Whitepages).

-In R2…

S N O _ _ O A _ D _ N G
& / S _ _ _ _ N G / O N
T H E / S A M E / D A _

I was afraid Jacqueline would say SNOWBOARDING AND SKIING ON THE SAME DAY to let $6,650 go down the drain, because that would be a letter short…and she did. Turning down the MW near LaT turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

-Brace yourselves for what happens in R3 — First, Tanino attempts to solve this w/ no money…

_ _ _ _ I N G
A / _ A _ A _ A

PEELING A BANANA won’t work when there’s just one N up there.  Furthermore, there were at least one NULL CYCLE cut out towards the end of the round.

-The second triple toss-up was almost a TRIPLE STUMPER. Considering how this game was going so far, we were in need of a CHANGE OF PACE.

-S-U took way too long and had way too many duds.

Generic set to choose from: THING/PHRASE/LT

$100K Bonus Round: This YOUNG KOALA climbs up the tree to give Tanino $45K and a guaranteed winning week (A better prize after losing the MDW AKA poetic justice, and on the same day both a double over and BD knockout occurred (AKA pulling a Dave for the latter; The last time this happened was on 4/11/2017; The last time the BR was won when a BD knockout occurred the same day during the latter show’s premiere week was 10/4/2017, and the last time the BR was won alongside a double over on the same day during the latter show’s premiere week was 10/30/2013))!

Tanino’s Final Total: $62,450 cash & CA

New GT: $83,450

  1. Things got a little wild in the main game with big winner Tanino losing the Million Dollar Wedge, it ended up with the BR’s mid-range $45K get. This is not poetic Justice to BobbyMgsk…it’s called redemption.

    Bobby’s Rating – 7 of 10 (Winning Show and as Skipps said locks up the first major this week that will wind up winning). HOWEVER, we can still get a $1M winner the rest of this week to decide our Contestant Of The Week. Stand by. Meantime…

    FINAL COUNT – 2 cars (incl. the Big Car on LMAD), the SD, the 3xG in our DDs, 1 F! (with the new J! champ), the usual trip, and $45K here.
    BLOOD COUNT – 3 cars, the non-car BD, 2 F!s, the outgoing J! champ, the SC DOB, and the MDW here.
    Both Griffin shows were our major winning ones today.


  2. Yeah, that maingame was just a total mess. -_-

    Mystery Round: I, too, was afraid that Jacqueline would miss the solve, which she does, especially considering that snowboarding and skiing are both winter sports and not surfing.

    PP/Express Round: Should’ve gone for the triple P’s before trying to solve, Tanino…

    Triple Toss-Up: That was almost a TRIPLE-STUMPER in that second puzzle.

    Speed-Up: That round took way too long, IMO.

    I was honestly surprised that we got a decent grand total at the end despite how ugly the front game was.

    Bonus Round: This impressive solve gives us the second $45K payoff this week (and third overall of the season already) and guarantees another winning week.

    My Rating: 6 (D+)

    P.S. I’ll no longer use bold when making comments on this site because I think that’s what’s causing my comments to be sent to spam.
