Sarita Cowins (Miami, FL)- An engaged food service manager who's expecting a third child
Jill Trotter (Ahwatukee in Phoenix)- Saleswoman
K _ _ _ _ S / _ I _ Y

Mike knows about the team that probably just lost Matt Cassel for the rest of the season due to an injured throwing hand, the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS, to get to $3K.
Eggland's Best Jackpot Round topic's Family & he first calls a dud in T right away (there's a Gourmet Gift Baskets.com gift tag out there). Second, Sarita calls two R's for the sears gift card & a $350 S, buys an E, calls out three L's to add $2,400 & a $350 N & buys two A's prior to getting the $800 D & the $450 B...
_ _ L E _ / A N D

On a Mystery/Before & After Round, she first calls up a $500 T for the green 1/2 KIA & a $300 H, buys two E's & an I but then calls a dud in S. Second, Jill doesn't do better calling for an R. Third, Mike puts up double N's for $1,100 but then buys the sole available dud vowel (A). Once regaining control, Sarita lights a $500 L & buys the other vowels (an O & a U) before dudding out w/ a B call. Next for Jill are a $900 K & trip G's to add $1,800, then...
K I N G / O _ / T H E
_ U N G L E
G _ _
...she's correct by saying KING OF THE JUNGLE GYM for $2,700.
DUDS: A (Mike), $500 B (Sarita), $550 R (Jill), $500 S (Sarita)
She also leads off the Prize Puzzle Round that features a Phrase, beginning w/ the Million Dollar Wedge's left Bankrupt. Mike secondly calls a $400 N, buys an E but then loses his turn w/ the R. Third, Sarita gets the same result as Jill, who then follows up w/ twin T's for $600 & the same number of O's before landing on LaT. Mike's next letter choices are a $350 S, two A's, an I, a $450 L & the last vowels of two U's, followed by the two C's for an extra nine bills...
_ _ / L U C _ / I S
A _ O U T / T O
C _ A N _ E
...& he's saying "MY LUCK IS ABOUT TO CHANGE", because he's added to his TU money $1,100 & the $5K Vegas.com/ORBITZ trip & has first place by a vowel w/ $9,100 in cash & Las Vegas.

...& the consonants left over are worth $1,300 apiece; still anybody's match (BTW, Mark inadvertently labels the puzzle as a TV Title instead of Occupation by this point). One M call later...
