WOF: Opening Toss-Up category is Thing:
_ T _ E T C H
_ _ _ O U S _ N E
Wendy's the first one to come up with STRETCH LIMOSUINE for $1,000. Tonight's panel:
Wendy Connolly (Overland Park, KS)- Stay-at-home mom
Lonny Oreck (Covington, LA)- Electronics engineer
Joycelyn Walker (Redando Beach, CA)- Karaoke singer
$2,000 Toss-Up category is On the Map:
_ A _ I _ _/B E _ _ H/
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ I A
Lonny's in first, but gives the first incorrect response of the season with VENICE BEACH CALIFORNIA (home of Sting). Wendy then steals MALIBU BEACH CALIFORNIA to triple her money.
Round 1 category is Same Name and out on the wheel now is a $6,900 trip to Paris. Wendy starts off with a pair of L's for a $1,000 gift certificate from Red Envelope. Later, after she calls the C, we have...
_ _ _ R E _ E/&/H _ N _ _ _ L L/
C _ _ R T
...I've got it. She buys the O and the U's, then calls a $2,500 B and buys the A's to clean out the vowels. Then comes a $550 D but then a Bankrupt. Lonny then calls a $300 S, a $400 M, and then solves SUPREME & HANDBALL COURT for his first $1,000.
BANKRUPTS: 1 (Wendy)
Eggland's Best Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round category is What Are You Doing? Lonny hits a Bankrupt early after calling a $400 T. Then, Joycelyn calls three N's for the Wild Card and then calls a G to become the first player to pick up the Million Dollar Wedge! Next, she calls a $300 H for the Free Spin. Unfortunately, a few spins later, she loses that and the Wild Card to a Bankrupt, and she decides to use the Free Spin. After she calls the D's, we have...
R E _ _ _ I N G/UNDER/THE/
M I D D _ _/SUN
...I think I know it. After a $450 Y, she buys the A's to rid the current board of all its vowels, but then repeats the H. Wendy then solves RELAXING UNDER THE MIDDDAY SUN for a trip to
Mazatlan worth $5,539, making her leading total $8,539.
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Lonny, Joycelyn)
WINNING ID FOR TRIP: JH6150540
Gold Bond $10,000 Mystery Round category is Food & Drink. Joycelyn spins her second Bankrupt early on. A little later, Lonny calls the R's and we have...
_ R _ N _ _ R R _/_ _ _ _ I N/WITH/
_ R _ N _ _/_ _ _ _ _
...I have the idea. He buys three E's, then calls a $300 B, buys three A's, calls a $400 C and then buys the sole O on the board. Then, he calls a $3,500 L in the last word and I definitely know this now. After buying the U, he spins his second Bankrupt. Joycelyn calls the G's for $1,200, a $700 Z, an $800 Y, but then spins Bankrupt once again. After that, Wendy calls the F's for another $7,000 and solves CRANBERRY MUFFIN WITH ORANGE GLAZE for another $10,250 and $18,789 total.
BANKRUPTS: 3 (2 by Joycelyn, 1 by Lonny)
Final Toss-Up category is Occupation:
_ _ V E R T I _ _ N G
_ _ E C _ _ _ _ _
Joycelyn's in first with ADVERTISING EXECUTIVE...yes for her first $3,000! Speed-Up Round category is Place and consonants are worth $1,600 apiece. After Wendy calls the D's...
T H _/D _ R _/S _ D _/_ _/
T H _/_ _ _ _
...she solves THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON to ice her cake with another $4,800 and $23,589 in cash and trip! Joycelyn leaves with $3,000 and Lonny gets one grand.
Big Money Round: Let's see if the streak goes to five episodes. She spins the I in WIN and the category is Thing. Starting with:
_/_ R _ S _/_ _ _ E
I have an idea. Connolly calls H, C, F and A and gets...
A/_ R _ S _/_ A C E
...she can't come up with A BRISK PACE, and she's the season's first loser of $25,000.

On this show, there's a limit on head start time for the leading team heading into the Aggro Crag- it's seven seconds, so that's what Cyclone Jones has to work with in the beginning. But who needs the extra seconds- Cyclone Jones wins with little trouble! They're one of my early favorites to win this.
Jeopardy!: Our second trio of grown-up kids:
Joel Serna (looking into IT and computer science)
Yoni Freund (a PhD from Columbia University)
Allex Fambles (a sophomore from Brown University)
MY, HOW YOU'VE GROWN!
LEARN TO COOK
THE DISAPPOINTING 21st CENTURY
REMEMBER "Y" 2 "K" (each correct response has one Y and two K's)
Freund finds the Daily Double under the $600 Literary Hodgepodge clue with $2,200 thus far and wagers IT ALL on this:
Part I of this 1995 Gregory Maguire novel that inspired a musical is called "Munchkinlanders".
"What is Wicked?"...is right to double up to $4,400! At the first break:
After the round is over:
LACH TRASH IN FIRST ROUND: $1,600
CHINA & INDIA
NOT TO BE CONFUSED
THERE'S A WORD FOR THAT
Early on, Serna's the first one to hit five figures with $10,400 after the category of There's a Word for That is over. He later finds the first Daily Double under the $1,600 Bible People clue with $12,400. He leads Freund by $4,000 and Fambles by six. His wager is his $4,000 lead:
In I Samuel, David saved this king's life more than once.
"Who is Saul?"...IS RIGHT to double his lead and go to $16,400! At one point, he has a $10,000 lead. Late in the round, he finds the other Daily Double under the $1,200 Geometry clue with $17,200. Freund has $10,400 and Fambles now has $7,200. His wager is five grand, which would put the game on ice. Here's the clue from Kelly:
In this triangle, if angle A is 42 degrees and angle B is 60 degrees, then angle C has to equal this.
"What is 78 degrees?"...YOU BET IT IS to go to $22,200! That ends the round.
LACH TRASH IN DJ!: $10,800
