WOF: Tonight's contestants are Garry Baines, Jr. from Inglewood, CA (who just graduated from UCLA and is a admissions analyzer for a private university; originally from Pittsburgh), Jillian Coolis from Springhill, KS (who is a full-time registered nurse) and Pam Hancock from Denver (who just got her Master's Degree in social work from the Univ. of Denver).

Tonight's male contestant gets SPANNING THE GLOBE for $1,000 (Jillian totally blew this one with SPANNING THE BIBLE, which is a ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK nominee) and then PAPERBACK WRITER to go to $3,000 (Hancock was incorrect with PAPERBACK WRAPPER).

Round 1 category is Food & Drink and out on the wheel now is a trip to Paris worth $5,400. After Jillian buys the A's, we have...

_ _ E _ _ A/S A _ S A _ E S/_ _/

T _ _ T _ _ _ _ _ S

...she calls an $800 G and buys the U and three O's. I know this now. She calls the N's for another $1,500 and solves VIENNA SAUSAGES ON TOOTHPICKS for $3,900.

Campbell's Soup Jackpot Round category is Before & After. Hancock calls two N's for the Wild Card. At that point, we have...

_ N S _ _ T

S _ R A _

T A N

...I've got it, and I have this bad feeling somebody will mess up the solve. She calls a dud in L. The man calls a $450 C and buys the E, but then calls D for dud. Jillian calls the P for a $1,000 gift certificate from AA.com and solves INSECT SPRAY TAN to win that and go to $4,900.

ActivOn Big Money/Prize Puzzle Round category is Thing. Early on, Jillian hits a Mystery Wedge. She calls two M's and takes $2,000 (the right thing to do, because a Bankrupt was there). She then calls the F for another $300 and the Free Spin. Later on, after she calls two D's for another $1,600, we have...

ESTIMATED/TIME/_ F/

D E _ A _ T _ _ E

...and she solves ESTIMATED TIME OF DEPARTURE for another $3,400 and a trip to St. Maarten, making her new total $15,700!

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: CI0001276

The man then solves FISH & GAME WARDEN to go to $6,000. Next category is Around the House. Jillian uses her Free Spin after calling a dud, but loses her turn a few turns later after repeating a dud of N. After the man buys the O's, we have...

S O L _ _/_ O O _/_ O _ _ _ _/

T _ _ L _

...he calls two D's for $1,000 and a W for another $500. After buying the I, he calls a $600 C and buys the E's. After he calls the F's, Speed-Up Mode commences and the remaining consonant is worth $1,300. He calls the B and solves SOLID WOOD COFFEE TABLE to finish with $10,250. Hancock gets the $1,000 consolation check and Jillian is our champion with $15,700.

Cars this week are a Toyota 4Runner and a Volvo C70 Convertible. She spins the first zero and the category is Phrase. Starting with:

T _ _ _ _

T _

_ _ _ _ _

I think it's TOUGH TO _____. She calls M, D, C and O and gets...

T O _ _ _

T O

_ _ O _ D

...she can't get TOUGH TO AVOID, and she's the latest one on the season's $100,000 loser list.

Hi Nice Blog .In most cases, using the same techniques used in the promotion of casinos and poker rooms will not provide you with satisfactory results. If you have never played bingo, give it a shot. It really is a lot of fun and as such is attracting a younger, more hip player than most would expect in Bingo online games
