WoF Quickcap: 1/23/2023


This week’s theme: Generic #2 (Dark set like the first one)

Today’s Californians trying to get a BR win for the seventh consecutive Monday
Michael Douglas Hall, a military brat who’s been to many exotic places (he and his dad have been to Alaska for the last two years and also spent time in Panama) and a playwright (he’s written six plays) who enjoys baking gingerbread cookies from L.A. (born in Germany)
Ebony Peralta, a married lady to Nick for four years who enjoys watching mixed martial arts and horror movies (she’s never broken a bone until two days prior to her wedding when she kicked her pinky toe into the shopping cart’s wheel — ouch) from San Diego Way
Brandie Sponaugle, a flight attendant for 23 years married lady for 15 years to Mickie (they first met when she was based in Washington D.C.) w/ three kids and fur baby from Long Beach

Final Scores: Ebony: $2K/Brandie: DESERVING $1K GOOSEEGG/Mike: $26,604 cash & St. Lucia

GT: $29,604
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash (minus MW $): $5K + MDW

Scary moments

-In R1…

A / _ E T E _ T I _ E
S E A R _ H I N G
F O R / _ L U E S

Brandie B for BOMBS OUT on her next pick thinking the last word is BLUES to throw away $8,100 — no way, lady! -__-

-When attempting to solve the _________ POLE crossword puzzle in R2, Brandie whiffs on the top column connected to the first letter of SKI w/ NORTH to let $10K go to waste — they can’t start w/ different letters when they’re linked on the same first letter, ma’am.

-In R3, Brandie painfully BANKRUPTs near $650 to lose $5K, so we got a $0 prize puzzle win as a result (Mike didn’t want to take any chances since he had a comfortable lead anyway).

-On the third Triple Toss-Up…

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ E
T _ _ _ _

TREASURE THINGBrandie?! I know you’re stumbled, lady, but ain’t no chance it’s gonna be that. -__-

-We had an intact NULL CYCLE during S-U, during which Mike calls a baffling dud of V.


BR car of the week: ’22 Ford Escape SE (…think I will be okay w/ $40K showing up this wk.)

$100K Bonus Round: I will be WAVING MY HANDS goodbye to the Monday winning streak (unsurprisingly after this miserable maingame) as Mike did not win the $40K.

My Rating: 3 (F)

Mythman’s Rating: 3/10 (This Episode was PBBBT… Not Worth Watching)
