Today’s set: ❄Winter Hideaway❄
–Liam Oakes, a communications mgr. for nonprofit who has played this game in a bathtub pretending to be Vanna fron Andover, NJ
–Emily Volpert, a plant-lover and landlord for her father upstairs from Portland, OR
–Kelsey Mead, a master certified life coach, podcaster & clinical hypnotherapist from Makato, MN
Final Scores: Emily: $5,950/Kelsey: $6K
WC/Liam: $16,900 cash & Bahamas
GT: an underwhelming $28,850
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash (minus MW $): $1K
-In R1, Emily neglects to call the multiple M’s and T’s before solving.
-On the _______ PLACE crossword in R2, Emily BLOWS IT BIG TIME w/ R to throw away $3,400 and MDW — RLUE?! LIRENSE?! -__- And then after calling the C, Kelsey also FLUNKS OUT w/ an A for awful purchase — UGH. 😡
-R3 didn’t fare too much better as Liam also left behind multiples solving w/ only $250, although I can’t really blame him considering the quality of this episode.
-Even though we managed to get a 5th round, R4 was just as ugly as the rest.
BR categories: PHRASE/THINGS/F&D
BR car of the day: maZDa CX-9 Grand Touring ($46,945)
$100K Bonus Round: Liam salvages this very messy episode and has A SLICE OF HONEYDEW for $40K.
Liam’s Final Total: $56,900 cash & Bahamas
New GT: $68,850
My Rating: 5 (D-) (way too frustrating even w/ BR win and five rds.)
Mythman’s Rating: 5/10 (Not Worth watching Besides the Bonus Round)

Emily had that MDW, but ended up losing the game to Big Winner Liam, who ended up with the $40K get in an easy BR!
Bobby’s Rating – sorry Skipps, but his is two notches up at 7 of 10 (due to the MDW loss, but barely Winning Show)
…we are not done yet. Full Primetime CBS slate up next, with final day stats to follow after LINGO. Hang in there!
I’m really glad we got a BR win in this episode, because the maingame was just ugly even though we got a 5-round game, no thanks to all those penalties.
My Rating: 5 (D)
