WoF Quickcap: 12/21/2022


If anyone here left to right wins a trip, they’ll have their TRAVEL PARTNERS ready
Lydia Burnett, a mom of two teenagers who listens to old-time radio shows and enjoys sci-fi, movies, novels, and all things in space from Reston, VA
Nick Romero (🏳️‍🌈), a guy who’s married to another man w/ twins (they adopted them through some agency) and plays basketball from Upland, CA
Celeste Staton, a mom of two children (Heather who’s married to Michael, and Morgan who has a partner named Kevin) who shares a birthday w/ Vanna (and this contestant was born on her parents’ anniversary and her older sister’s birthday) from Sequim, WA

Final Scores: Lydia: $12,978 cash & Belize/Nick: $17,700 cash & NM/Celeste: $3,500

GT: $34,178
Lydia’s Bankrupt Trash: $850

Scary moments

-Quite a few duds again on this episode (mostly R1), and in R2, Nick makes a CRITICAL PURCHASE of O to throw away $10,250 — hoo boy.


$100K Bonus Round: This is a classic case of “close but no cigar“, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, as getting the first word wrong w/ DO cost Nick $40K.
