WoF Quickcap: 2/28/2023


These contestants hope to earn winnings LARGER THAN LIFE!

Josh Bailey: Air Force vet who’s a deputy director for the 509th Force Support Squadron at Whiteman Air Force Base taking care of the airmen, also hosted a variety of different game shows for them (obviously on a smaller budget) from Chilhowee, MO

Mary Ann Hotaling: public school administrator who served in the Army whose father is from Portugal and her mother is from Brazil (they put on this show to help her learn English) from Athens, AL

Yolanda Goddard: certified nursing assistant who’s going to school to become a surgical technologist; loves even numbers (she drinks with two straws but everything good happens to her with the number 5 so it’s the only odd number she would accept) from Compton, CA

$22,069 cash & Barbados | Josh: $8,250 | Mary Ann: $4K

GRAND TOTAL: $34,319
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding MW gamble & WC): $1,550

Scary moment

In the XL Mystery Round…

T H E / B I _ _ E S T
O F / T H E / Y E A R

Mary Ann went on… and UNNECESSARILY LaTed OUT to let $4,550 & MDW go to waste- SMH. -__- She also went viral for her on-air behavior.

Fearing yet another Tuesday XL $100K loss: EVENT/THING/PHRASE

I’m not so sure about that choice…

$100K Bonus Round: Regarding Vanna’s look on the show, you might be saying to her, “WHAT A CUTE OUTFIT”, but Yolanda doesn’t even get the first word right. Did we make bad history of having our third Tuesday XL $100K loss in a row?…

…no, she loses $40K instead.

My Rating: 4 (F+)

Unfortunately, that is our thirty third car shutout of the season.
