_ I _ M _ N D

Not sure if Lori's wearing a DIAMOND PENDANT right this second, but she's already won $1K to buy any new piece of jewelry. And now, to the contestant bios for the evening:

One of Hasbro's classic games, Daniel solves CONNECT FOUR.
FAMOUS footwear Jackpot Round category's Show Biz & he calls first a T for the sears gift card & a $300 S, buys four E's, calls a $600 L & buys two O's before saying D for the week's first dud. Secondly, Lori loses her turn on the Bankrupt next to $2.5K right away. Third, Becky calls two R's while on Jackpot for a grand...but then goes right on to call a dud in H (she could've won a $6,700 Jackpot by now). As Daniel regains control, he calls two M's for another C-note & the green 1/2 KIA & the board...
_ _ E S O M E
M O _ _ E
T R _ _ L E R

DUDS: $300 D (Daniel), $500 H (Lori)
SOLE BANKRUPT OF THE ROUND: Lori
FINAL UNWON JACKPOT: $7,700
To lead off a Mystery/Before & After Round, Lori calls an instant dud of R while on the other 1/2 KIA wedge. Second, Becky & Daniel go Bankrupt back-to-back next to the Wild Card, so the guy just lost his 1/2 KIA. Third, Lori calls for a $500 T, buys an E & two A's, calls out four N's for $1,200 & a $1K pair of D's for the 1/2 KIA from the same location Daniel claimed it from, followed by the other vowels (an I, O & two U's), a G as in the Gourmet Gift Baskets.com gift tag, & triple P's to add $2,400...but she then Bankrupts out on the Million Dollar Wedge's right side to lose her plate & $4,850 in cash & gift certificate; that's her second Bankrupt tonight. After Becky calls a couple M's & a J for $300 apiece, we have...
J U M P I N G
U P / A N D
D O W N
P A Y M E N T
...she will be JUMPING UP AND (be given a $100) DOWN PAYMENT, so she's on the board & keeps control of the wheel.

BANKRUPTS: 3 (Everybody)
Monday's Prize Puzzle Round topic will be Song/Artist. Lori's first letters in this round of play are a couple of T's for $600, two H's to add a thou to that & a pair of E's, but she then hits the same Bankrupt of the MDW to lose the remaining $1,350; both women have two Bankrupts apiece so far. Second, Daniel lights up a $3.5K C, an A pairing, a quartet of O's & quad B's for another two grand, then...
_ O O _
_ _ B _ A T _ O _ _
B _ / T H E / B E A C H
B O _ _

YDI: This is one of the very few shows where contestants aren't playing for themselves, but somebody they know. Chris Harrison's the in-studio host (this is his second full-fledged game show; his first was GSN's "Mall Masters") & Brooke Burns does the outside work.
In this case, Stacey Finnerty (a high school teacher & coach) will play for Michelle Brislen; they first met while they were on the University of California-Berkeley soccer team. Five months ago, Michelle's husband died due to a diving accident.
The game's played for five rounds. After the main subject of the puzzle's revealed to be a Who, What or Where & a free clue's given, s/he must select one of nine other clues, each of which will deduct a certain amount from that round's top prize. Once s/he solves a puzzle, the remaining money from that round will be put in their friend's bank; if a wrong answer's given, no money's awarded for that puzzle. If things go really well, over $400K could be banked by the end of the night.
