Alaina solves COMPUTER LAB for $2,000.

A $5,000 RazorGator.com gift certificate goes on the wheel and the Round 1 category is What Are You Doing? Midway in the round, Alaina calls an L for the Wild Card, then two K's for the Million Dollar Wedge (Vanna intially forgets to put one of them up!). Next is a $900 B and a pair of A's to clean out the vowels, then she calls a pair of T's for another $1,400 and the S for another $400. Sadly, next comes Lose a Turn to possibly cost her three grand and the MDW. Prema then calls a $500 F, a $400 P, a $300 H, and here's the board:

L O O K I N G | A T

P H O T O S | O N

She then solves LOOKING AT PHOTOS ON FACEBOOK for $1,200.

O _ T | A T | A

_ R E S _ _ A T E R

_ O O L

...I think I know. After a pair of N's for another $1,600, she buys an I up top, calls a $300 P but then gets gonged for saying O first before saying U on her next vowel purchase; she may have lost $13,500 as a result of that slip-up. Drew then spins Bankrupt. Alaina then calls a pair of H's for $1,200 and buys the U; the board now...

H A N _ I N _

O U T | A T | A

V8 Mystery Round category is Same Name. Drew immediately gets the Mystery Wedge next to Lose a Turn and calls two T's. He takes $2,000 for those T's (but $10,000 was back there). After buying an A, he calls the night's first dud in N. Alaina also calls a dud in H. When we get back to Drew, he calls two R's and we have...

T E R _ | &

T I S S _ E

_ A _ E R

...he solves TERM & TISSUE PAPER for another $2,650 and $3,650 total.

...with only vowels remaining, she solves RESIDENT ASSISTANT to go to three grand.

_ _ N _

M _ M _ R _ _ S

...he will have FOND MEMORIES of winning this maingame with $10,450! Alaina leaves with $9,050 in cash and trip and Prema gets $3,000.

So far, $22,500 in cash and trip has been handed out this evening.

DUDS: L (Prema), T (Drew)

Big Money Round: Drew spins the N in SPIN and the category is Thing. Starting with:

T _ _ _ T

If they wanted to be "patriotic", they'd represent America with their best cars, not their worst.
