WoF: After the six-day Halloween Week starting next week will be a four-day Fun & Fit Week prior to the start of the sears Secret Santa Sweepstakes. Tonight's first Toss-Up puzzle category will be Song Title:
O _ / T H E / R _ _ D

Charis Knight (Memphis)- Senior reporting analyst at a relocation company/licensed dance fitness instructor
Sara Liles (Baton Rouge)- A LFaT since she was four years old who had her grandma dig up a picture of her one Christmas asking for one of the show's board games
The $2K TU needs a Thing:
L _ C _ Y
P E _ _ _
This was also the title of one of the games on the short-lived GS "Make Me a Millionaire" from The California Lottery (which replaced the long-running "The Big Spin") & Charis IDs LUCKY PENNY.
Up for grabs from the desert trip department's a stay at the Sorrel River Ranch resort & spa courtesy of Hotwire.com worth $5,415; the topic of this Meineke Jackpot Round's Same Name. Charis goes first by instantly Bankrupting on the Million Dollar Wedge's right part. Second, Sara calls a T for the Wild Card, but then misses out on a potential chance to use it when she duds out on the $2.5K wedge w/ an N call. Third, Scott hits the other Bankrupt of the MDW. Fourth, Charis calls three S's for $900, buys two A's, calls for a Free Play E but then Loses a Turn. Next up for Sara are a $2.5K L & R (the latter coming on the WC use), two I's, a $900 P, but then the normal Bankrupt next to $2.5K to lose $5,650. Once Scott regains control, he calls a $550 V, buys an O to round out the vowels & inserts a $500 V for a 1/2 KIA before saying D for dud. Charis then calls the two C's for an additional $1,200 & we have...
L A S / V E G A S / &
C O _ I C
S T R I P
...& she solves LAS VEGAS & COMIC STRIP for new cash winnings of $3,850.
DUDS: $900 D (Scott), $2.5K N (Sara)
SOLE LaT: Charis
BANKRUPTS: 3 (Everybody)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $14,250
Sara starts the Mystery Round w/ Food & Drink as the topic, first by calling triple the T's for $2,700, buying two I's, calling a $500 H for a 1/2 KIA from the other available spot & purchasing quad E's & A's, followed by two N's for six more bills but then the same regular Bankrupt to cost her that plate & $3,300. Second, Scott gets up there an M while on the Mystery Wedge w/ that MDW nearby. He takes the obvious gamble...& it pays off! After that come a $1,650 trio of L's, a D for the Camping World gift tag, the rest of this puzzle's vowels (an O & two U's)...& the following...
O A T M E A L / _ I T H
_ L U E _ E _ _ I E _
A N D / _ A L N U T _
...he eats some OATMEAL WITH BLUEBERRIES AND WALNUTS for a total this round of $12,150 in cash & camping gear, making his overall bank $13,150.
SOLE BANKRUPT: Sara
He also stays in command at the Prize Puzzle Round's beginning (remember, as of this taping week, it's permanently in R3); category's Phrase. His opening letter choices are two N's for $1,200, four E's & an O, then coming his way are two D's for another grand, trip A's, a $400 W, but then the only negative vowel up there this round (I). Charis decides to ring in...
_ E A D _ / _ O _ / A
N E W / A D _ E N _ _ _ E
...& she's READY FOR A NEW ADVENTURE- it's a $9,700 Celebrity Cruise to the Mediterranean, so w/ $13,550 in cash & cruise, she has a $400 first-place margin.
SOLE DUD: I (Scott)
TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: CF0396514 (Colin F. from Virginia!)
Before that $5K wedge becomes available, here's a Fictional Character TU:
S _ _ _ / _ H _ _ E
Sara nails SNOW WHITE to strike paydirt for the first time this match.
It's Rhyme Time on the Last Chance Round tonight w/ consonants worth...$1,600 a pop. After two F's are lit by Vanna...
F R _ _ / _ _ R _ T
T _ / F _ R _ T
...Scott didn't go FROM WORST TO FIRST- he went from second to the match win w/ a total of $21,150 in cash & gift certificate! Charis is out of here w/ $13,550 in cash & voyage & Sara has the $3K TU payoff.
$37,700 in cash & stuff was won upfront this time.
DUDS (both by Sara): C & N (for the CN Tower & the Cartoon Network)
TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH: $8,950
Maxwell House Big Money Round #21: Scott's spin calls a halt on the N in WIN & he has to solve this big Thing, starting w/:
_ _ L L - _ _ _ _ E _
_ L _ _ _ R
BCPA will add...
_ _ L L - B _ _ _ E _
_ L A _ _ R
...he's wrong thinking it's some kind of PLAYER (although he got the first word right); it was FULL-BODIED FLAVOR & he's the second straight $30K loser. He departs w/ $21,150 in cash & camping equipment.
