GT: $49,899
Lamont’s Bankrupt Trash (minus MW $): $650

Scary moment

-After Melissa fills most of this R4 puzzle…

G A R D E N S / A N D
G R E E N _ _ _ S E S

She still doesn’t know it and goes on once moreand TOTALLY BLOWS IT thinking the last consonant was P to throw away $7,700 — GREENPOUSES, ma’am?! UGH. -__- (That was the first dud all day long, by the way, and then again, the pressure in the studio can do some weird things)

Unfavorable trio: PHRASE/PLACE/THING

$100K Bonus Round: This puzzle luckily wasn’t QUITE PERPLEXING for Stephanie (QU- trap defeated for the second week in a row and it will come back for revenge) as she’s given the keys to the Mercedes-Benz GLB250 worth $45,140.

Stephanie’s Final Total: $70,990

New GT: $95,039

Adam’s Rating: 8

Skipps’ Rating: 7 (C+) (I hate to have to take a point off for Melissa’s critical R4 dud)

My Rating: 7 (C-)

Melissa’s epic fail in R4 unfortunately precludes a bull for this episode.

It just had to be Gas Money, didn’t it, Kiara? Showcase redemption, though.
