Kelly sure brought out the red flag in Race Game. Kelly, please don’t audition to go on a game show if you are going to defy the host and ignore his advice to help you out. -__-

Disappointing for Jameelah and Brandon.

I’m sorry, but I just can’t shake off that horrid playing of Race Game. -__-


WoF Quickcap: 11/7/2022


This week’s theme: 🎖Veterans Week🎖

Trio of men left to right LEADING BY EXAMPLE who risked their lives for our peace & freedom
Levy Brunette, a Navy vet of five years (he was a Boatswain’s mate third class) stationed in Sasebo, Japan as well as Manama, Bahrain who has four brothers (all of them were in the military in different branches) and enjoys watching baking shows from Seattle (orig. from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti)
Tim Johnson, a bald Air Force vet from 1998 to 2004 and father of two daughters who moonlighted his last three years of enlistment at a Top 40 station in Anchorage, AK from Sauk Rapids, MN
Wes Gyorko, a 5-year Army veteran from 2001 to 2006 (he was an MP and did a year in Afghanistan) who enlisted because his grandfathers were in the Army during WWII and is married to Mary for 10 years w/ three sons from Hedgesville, WV

Final Scores: Levy: $3K WC/Tim: $39,750 cash & Carribean/Wes: $10K

GT: $52,750

Scary (& wild) moments

-The opening toss-up…

_ E A _ _ N _
_ Y / _ X A _ _ L E

Wes blows it w/ WAITING TO EXHALE — just doesn’t fit, sir. -__-

-R4 started w/ an instant NULL CYCLE ending Tim’s bid for a flawless game w/ N for negative, and then Wes foolishly repeated the N right after, which caused Levy and I to say R for rats. But on the bright side of it, Tim got us our first $6K FS this season! But had he made the $21,050 solve (had no help on top, unfortunately), he would’ve set a Season 40 record for maingame winnings ($60,800).

Not sure if this trio of categories will do us justice: PLACE/PHRASE/THING

This week’s ride to thank any lucky vets for their service: ’23 maZDa CX-50 (most likely the 2.5S Premium Plus trim)

$100K Bonus Round: Tim is unable to locate the $40K in Bellamie’s PRIVATE DRIVEWAY (Curse of Monday continues).
