WoF Quickcap: 3/20/2023


Oh no, it’s the return of a theme week that flopped very badly last season: 🌋HAWAII Week🌋.

One of the opening contestants might feel the TROPICAL WEATHER of Hawaii…

Tonisha Jacobs: happily married to Deon of almost eight years with a two-year-old Jackson who’s a business owner of an escape room but mainly is a professional DJ for 12 years and full time for eight years, mainly corporate private weddings from Columbia, SC

Andrew Drake: married man to Lindsey for 10 years of wedded bliss with three kids who’s also a sports memorabilia guy (he collects anything signed by Badgers, Packers, Brewers, you name it) from Oregon, WI

Julie Malloy: married to Connor for 14 years with four children (her husband met at Ohio State University and are diehard Buckeye fans) from Columbus, OH

$21,907 cash & Aruba | Andrew: $13,400 cash & Maui Jim | Julie: $4K

GRAND TOTAL: $39,307
BANKRUPT TRASH (Andrew in Round 1, excluding WC & MW gamble): $1K

Scary moments

-In the opening Toss-Up…

_ _ _ P _ C _ L
_ _ A _ H _ _

Andrew didn’t remember the category and said TROPICAL BEACHES; that would work if this puzzle was categorized as PLACES.

-The Mystery Round started with SEVEN CONSECUTIVE LOST TURNS (which started with all three contestants hitting the BANKRUPT near $650 three times in a row which wasn’t edited out). Furthermore, no letters were revealed until the SIXTH turn (first known instance since S17 of this happening on air) and nobody earned any money until the EIGHTH turn. SMH. -___-


Just… why?! -___-

They’re offering another Ford for this edition of the week, but this time, it’s a 2023 Mustang convertible.

$100K Bonus Round: There won’t be any AWESOME DIGITAL PHOTOS of Tonisha winning $40K.
