Theme: ✨Wheel of Fortune XL III✨

Kicking off the third XL week…

Michelle Jones: city clerk treasurer from Estancia, NM (home of the best pinto beans in the world according to her)

Alex Pimentel: tennis player married to Cynthia for almost 9 years from La Quinta, CA (born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

La Donna: $1K GOOSEEGGMichelle: $10,900 | Alex: $21,960 cash & Cancun MDW

GRAND TOTAL: $33,860
BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding 2 MDWs): $2,600

Scary moments

-Too many penalties in the second and third rounds, including a total of five BANKRUPTS.

-In the Crossword about desserts (in the XL Mystery Round), Michele got the first down word wrong with TORT when it was actually TART.

-The third Triple Toss-Up was almost a TRIPLE STUMPER.


The XL car this week is a 2023 BMW X1 xDrive28i.

MILLION DOLLAR BONUS ROUND #7: THAT WAS FUNNY how Alex solved this one despite not getting any additional help on the last word. But do we finally have our first-ever male millionaire?…

…no, but he does win the BMW X1 worth $43,565!

$1M LOCATIONS: (2 away), (9 away)

Alex’s Final Total: $65,525 cash & prizes


My Rating: 5 (D-)
