WoF Quickcap: 10/3/2022


This week’s theme after it was absent last season: 🛫Great Escapes🛫

Californians bouncing back from A VERY LONG WEEKEND
Michael Ortiz, a married man to Raquel with three kids who collects beer cans/bottles from Novato
Nate Gonzales, a 27-year-old freelance graphic designer and digital artists who loves things all pop culture and has a partner named M.K. and a 91-year-old grandfather from La Verne
Katie Grimm, a married lady of almost three years to Cameron (they have a black lab named Jim) whose maiden name is White (when she was a kid, she told pretty much everyone that she’s related to Vanna, but they aren’t) from Pleasant Hill

Final Scores: Katie: $40,949 cash & prizes/Michael: $4,400/Nate: $6,500

GT: $51,849
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash (minus MW $): $5,700 + WC

Scary moments

-Even though Katie was dominant & won big the front game wasn’t the smoothest (especially not R2) w/ all those BANKRUPTs, and S-U took too long.

BR categories: THING/F&D/PHRASE

BR Car of the Week: Ford Explorer XLT ($42K+; The Escape (preferrably one of the higher trim levels) would’ve fit this theme better)

$100K Bonus Round: Katie could not find the keys to the Ford Explorer lost in the pile of JUICY PEACHES, and the Monday winning streak is over.

Unwinnable with a setup like that. You’re telling me this is the beginning of Bellamie & Co.’s budget recovery?

ant0824’s Rating: 7

Adam’s Rating: N/A (I don’t give ratings on shows where I was in the audience because I have already seen the show in the studio and when watching it again at home, I was watching it with the feeling that I was actually there.)

Skipps’ Rating: 6 (D+) (maingame could’ve gone smoother esp. R2 & R4; $42K+ SUV loss also hurt my rating)

My Rating: 6 (D+)

  1. The Monday BR winning streak is over as we end this day with a good main game…but HORRIBLE Car loss in the BR.

    Bobby’s Rating – 6 of 10 (on the merit of the car loss tonight, 2nd straight Losing Show this week – and possibly the Official Rating on this forum pending other reviews and ratings here, and by the way Ant was first tonight with the reviews on Bobby’s site and will therefore be averaged for the final review on Bobby’s site after 11 PM ET).

    FINAL COUNT – 1 car, the non-car BD, 3xG in our DDs, 2 F!s (with the ongoing champ), and 2 trips (yes, Bobby did not count the additional trip won here).
    BLOOD COUNT – 4 cars (incl. here and the DOB) , and 1 F!.

    LMAD and J! are our two major winning shows today.

    Enjoy NFL, THE VOICE, and DANCING WITH THE STARS (the results on the latter two coming later on Bobby’s site).


    1. I wouldn’t really say “horrible”. That bonus puzzle screams “Forced Loss” all over (even though I RSTLNEd it).


  2. Despite a rather ugly Mystery Round, Katie managed to win big in that round as well as the following round and ultimately went on to set a new maingame record for this season.

    Bonus Round: Fruity Pebbles are sooo good IMO, but that won’t cut it when it’s a letter too long. I would say that this one was also FORCED LOSS like the BR puzzle from last Friday. And just like that, the Monday winning streak has been snapped. I thought it was gonna be FUZZY PEACHES since the writers tend to use uncommon letters to make the BR puzzles really hard.

    My Rating: 7 (C+)
