No trip to PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA tonight, but we have these people playing…
Karmini Narayanan: frequent radio contest entrant living with her husband Sean of 18 years and 12-year-old son named Rohit (they also air this version of the show in Malaysia; it’s called Roda Impian) from Phoenix, AZ
Benny Varughese (CC misspelled his last name as “Varaghese”): electrical engineer for a utility company in New York married to Sheba with a two-year-old son Andrew and expecting another boy on the way and a Yankee and New York Jet fan from Fort Myers, FL
Lindsey Choisnet: nonprofessional ax thrower currently working on her trick shots who’s also a crime buff (it’s just what she listens to when she’s getting ready for work in the morning and on her drives to and from work) from Fayetteville, GA
Benny: DESERVING $1K GOOSEEGG | Lindsey: $15,344 cash & Maui | Karmini: $8,200
GRAND TOTAL: a pathetic $24,544
SEASON-WORST BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding MW gamble): a whopping $30,200 cash & ALASKA CRUISE
-In Round 1…
T R E _ D S E T T E R S
S E T T _ _ _ / T R E _ D S
Benny (who had $19,400 cash & AK cruise sitting in front of him) spun again, to our dismay…and threw all of that to the BANKRUPT near TD– tsk tsk tsk.
-In the PP/Express Round…
I / W I L L / B E
_ N A _ A I L A B L E
Benny BOMBED OUT thinking D is the last consonant (he was on EXPRESS mode and threw another $2,750 to BANKRUPT) – UNADAILABLE?! -__-
-The first of the Triple Toss-Ups…
R _ _ A T E D
P _ A _ _ _ S
Benny took too long, but he blew it anyway with ROASTED PANINIS.
Unsurprisingly, a lot of viewers were enraged by Benny’s gameplay.
I don’t know if this episode could be saved with: PHRASE/THING/PEOPLE
Here we go again…
$100K Bonus Round: This was ALMOST ENOUGH to get the win. Unfortunately for Lindsey, she blows an easy BR (she only had the bottom word) and loses $40K. I know it’s hard up there, but that should NOT have been lost.
My Rating: 2 (F-)
Ant0824’s Rating: 1
Adam’s Rating: 2/10 (had the $100K popped up, this would be an easy 1…at least there were no house minimum solves)
Benny, what happened to you?
