WoF Quickcap: 1/26/2023


Spinning a giant wheel isn’t what I consider to be part of EXTREME SPORTS, but here’s today’s trio left to right
Heather England, a married lady to Josh from England for 16 years w/ three teenagers w/ two pet doodle dogs from Temecula, CA
Ben Tucker, a newlywed for a couple of months (they love to travel around the country and go see pro wrestling if the occasion calls for it) and video game guy who has over four dozen video game systems and almost 2K video games from L.A.
Aja House, a lady who has a custom at-home bakery but doesn’t have an actual business from Phoenix, AZ

Final Scores: Heather: $3K/Ben: $18,700 cash & Maui/Aja: $15K

GT: $36,700
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash: $4,650

Scary moments

-Here is what happened in the opening T-U…

_ X _ R E _ E
S P O _ T _

Aja is DQ’d for leaving out the S at the endand adds it just after time was called on her.

-There were too many duds and BANKRUPTs, and also in R1 an unnecessary vowel purchase (and Ben tried to buy a vowel w/ no money in R3).

-There was a cut NULL CYCLE and a NON-NULL edit (they skipped Aja calling the D and her updated score) during S-U, and also…

_ _ _ T _ R Y
_ A R A D _

Aja wastes the obvious P at the beginning of the bottom wordand can’t solve for $6,400 costing her the game. And then Heather calls the C…

_ _ C T _ R Y
P A R A D _

She STILL doesn’t know it for $3,200.

BR categories: F&G/THING/PHRASE

Not surprising at all that he picked that considering he’s a gaming freak.

$100K Bonus Round: Ben isn’t TAKING A QUICK JOG to $45K (QU- trap strikes again) — that was just unwinnable. Period.

My Rating: 5 (D-)
