WoF Quickcap: 2/6/2023

Oh yeah, this week marks the one-year anniversary of the historic $100K threepeat on the show.


Theme of the wk.: 🚌WHEEL Across America🚌

Any of these three contestants could be taking a WONDERFUL ROAD TRIP across our country
Cory Cannataro (🏳️‍🌈), a recently married man to Joe w/ three dogs who enjoys skydiving, traveling, and cooking from Mahopac, NY
Holly Corley, a newlywed to Marine Corps veteran Chad who’s been golfing since she was seven years old and a fan of the Arizona State Sun Devils from Phoenix
Barbara Rainier, a married lady who saw a lot of movie stars at MGM Studios w/ her friends when she was a teenager from Hemet, CA (grew up in Culver City)

Final Scores: Barbara: $4K/Cory: $25,550 cash & C.R/Holly: $11,650

GT: $41,200
Tonight’s Bankrupt Trash (minus MW $): $3,800 + WC

Scary moments

-In R1…

S O A P / O P E R A
& / _ A _ _ I N G

Barbara doesn’t count her N’s and blows the solve w/ SOAP OPERA & DANCING STAR to watch $7,050 go down the drain.

-In R3…

T A K I N G / S O M E
T I M E / _ O _
M _ S E _ _

Barbara blows another solve by leaving out the second word of SOME (even though that word was filled out on the board, and that went VIRAL).

BR categories: PHRASE/AtH/THING

Not so sure about that…

BR car of the week: Chevrolet Blazer

$100K Bonus Round: ON A DAILY BASIS we write “Quickcaps” on game shows. As for Coryhe’s won $40K and will be counting every penny of that this often (despite losing a WC).

Cory’s Final Total: $65,550 cash & C.R.

New GT: $81,200

My Rating: 6 (D+) (maingame wasn’t great save for R1)

Unfortunately, that that is our twenty-sixth car shutout of the season.
