WoF: I still can't believe we're this close to having this last week from New Orleans be a grand slam. Let's focus on tonight's extravaganza & the $1K Food & Drink Toss-Up puzzle:
O _ S T E R S
_ _ C K _ _ _ _ L _ R
This is the dish that caused Bert Convy to blurt out "oyster" as the answer to a "Super Password" puzzle over 20 years ago; Michael knows it's OYSTERS ROCKEFELLER. Time once again to go down the line in greeting our players:
Michael Martinez (Marrero, LA)-A French Quarter bartender & crawfish fan w/ the nickname of "Cha-Cha" because he was a former 20-year ballroom dancing teacher
Jessi Cantrell (St. Rose, LA)- A woman who recently got her Master's Degree in Criminology & got engaged to Jeff; she has an identical twin sister named Abby & getting on this show was one of the items on her bucket list (also on there are skydiving & traveling to Italy & London)
Azure Bridgewater (Baton Rouge)- A Southern University at Baton Rouge sophomore who's a member of the Beta Alpha Chapter of Sigma Gamma RHO, Incorporated
$2K TU subject's On the Map:
_ H E / _ _ U T H
_ _ / _ _ _ _ C _
Jessi goes w/ THE SOUTH OF FRANCE...correct for control.
The showcased trip's to the Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa Valley worth $9,250 & the Eggland's Best Jackpot Round category's What Are You Doing? Jessi opens by calling two N's for $800 & a $300 G & buying three I's, but she then loses the rest of her money to the Bankrupt next to the $2.5K wedge. Secondly, Azure calls three S's for $1.5K, purchases an A at the start of the third & final word, calls two T's to triple up & buys three E's & two O's & U's to clean out the vowels before Bankrupting on the Million Dollar Wedge's right side to toss aside $1.5K. Following Michael's call of D for dud while on the top dollar space, Jessi lights up a $900 J & we have...
E N J O _ I N G
S _ _ U _ _ T I O U S
A _ _ E T I _ E _ S
...she's ENJOYING SCRUMPTIOUS APPETIZERS to turn her two grand into three.
SOLE DUD: $2.5K D (Michael)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (women)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $10,100
Once we're in a Same Name Round, Azure calls a $300 R & two S's to tack on a C-note, buys three E's, puts up three N's for the MDW, a $550 L & a $900 V & buys an A before lighting two Y's for 1,800 more dollars & buying the last vowels of two I's. After she Free Plays a $500 K, she duds out w/ M to leave the MDW & $4,300 on the table. That allows Michael to control a $600 D...
S E V E N - L A Y E R
& / S K I N N Y
D I _
...& he gets the doubler w/ SEVEN-LAYER & SKINNY DIP.
SOLE DUD: $800 M (Azure)
He also keeps command as we go into the Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round w/ a subject of Phrase; this puzzle's large. First up are four T's for that Wild Card, two N's for the Napa getaway, an $800 D but then a dud of S. Second for Jessi are a $400 R but then a dud in L while on the Mystery Wedge in between FP & Lose a Turn. Third, Azure calls her second consecutive dud of W. On Michael's second turn of the round, he has a $1,200 pair of C's, five A's & four O's lit, but he then hits the other regular Bankrupt to lose the WC & $10,750 in cash & trip. Afterwards, Jessi tries to solve this...
_ O _ / C A N ' T
_ A _ _ / _ O _ R
C A _ _ / A N D
_ A T / _ T / T O O
...she says "YOU CAN'T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT, TOO" for $400 more & the mystery vacation to the Marriott St. Kitts Resort at The Royal Beach Casino worth $6,230, adding to her lead w/ $9,630 in cash & trip.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
_ _ N / _ _ _ N _ _
...he solves ELECTRIC CAN OPENER too quickly, so he'll have to settle for a second-place cash haul of $8,200. As a result, Azure gets the $1K gooseegg prize & Jessi hangs on for the victory w/ $9,630 in cash & St. Kitts.
Only $18,830 in cash & travel has been awarded up to this point on the evening.
