WoF Quickcap: 11/29/2022


Today’s set: 🍲Fabulous Food🍲

Extra set of foodies looking to give us a treat
Gina Gonzalez-Scallon, a married lady to Sean for six years (they’ve known each other since they were 14 and fell in love at 25) w/ an almost-2 y/o son from L.A. (born & raised in Long Island and she’s representing Puerto Rico where her dad was from (and a lot of her family still lives there)) (she has recently purchased a WoF board game)
Claire Person, a special ed teacher (she has just started her seventh yr.) married to Lolan for 8 years w/ two sons from Lodi, CA (located in Wine Country where there are a ton of wineries and delicious wine, and she partakes w/ family & friends)
Adrian Weaver, a real estate broker and musical theater performer (he had to pick up a second job as a result of the pandemic) who used to be a competitive swimmer in MS and early HS from Merrillville, IN (Phi Ly mistakenly said Chicago, and YouTube CC misspelled it as Maryville although a Marysville, IN actually does exist) (his mom bought all the WoF games and he gives a shoutout to her and his big sister who is currently serving overseas in the Air Force)

Final Scores: Claire: $2K/Adrian: $17,750 cash & FL/Gina: $19,950 cash & C.R. WC

GT: $39,700

Scary moments

-In R2, Claire calls an unfortunate dud of H to throw away $10,750 and chance at a million.

-We had this in the first triple toss-up…

_ A _ U _ A _ L _
C _ R _ Y / _ A _ R

Claire leaves out the “-LY” in NATURALLY not taking note of the space between the A and L.

Generic categories: THING/PLACE/PHRASE

BR car of the day: INFINITI QX50

$100K Bonus Round: Gina finds $50K (first such win this season) stowed away in AN OLD FARMHOUSE (pulled a Dave once again and encore from yesterday (last time that happened even though it was before that contestant was on this show was on Jan. 5-6, 2017) even though the WC was no good)!

Gina’s Final Total: $69,950 cash & C.R.

New GT: $89,700

No meal for Pat and Vanna to share, naturally, because it’s an AG week episode.

My Rating: 9 (A-) (sentiment might’ve played a role)

Ant0824’s Rating: Impressive 9

Unfortunately, that is our twelfth car shutout of the season.
