2/21/2012 Results

LMaD: Yesterday morning, Ali joined the exclusive club of traders who decided to forfeit a car that they've won & then won the Big Deal of the Day! Now, to the action on the trading floor today.

Consuela (dressed as a former shortstop), Amy (dressed as a mostly chocolate ice cream cone) & Daniella (dressed as a Disco queen) have to Follow the Leader. They all stick on Curtain #1 w/ the clue of Roll.

CURTAIN #2 (Fly)- Flying house
SILVER ENVELOPE- Trip to New Orleans ($6,794)
CURTAIN #1 (all three just gave back $1K, too)- FlyScooter

Kavin, dressed as a '60s car salesman you might find in Detroit (& maybe Bruno Mars without a mustache as well), picked a good time to get chosen by the host, because he's playing 0 to 80 for the $16,120 version of the automobile that Ali traded away the other day (& he wants to win it for his mom), the 2012 KIA Forte LX (Curtain #3).

1. 30- TURNS DOWN $500
2. 10 (40)- TURNS DOWN $600
3. 10 (50)- TURNS DOWN $800, $1K & $1,200

The couple of the day are James (dressed as a wizard) & Joan (a lady named Cheryl who's dressed as a rabbit in a hat; they've been together for 45 years); they're about to play the "My Husband Sounds Like a..." Deal.

1. Bird- COYOTE
2. Train- TRAIN ($1.5K)
3. Blender- FARTIE IN THE WATER; ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK NOMINEE

THE BIG RISK (CURTAIN #3): NO (because they were on 37 yrs. ago & when they took the Big Box, they got ZONKED by some goats)- Nissan cube ($16,700)

Lauren (who has some hair rollers in her hair) will take part in the week's second installment of Time Is Money.

Kelly's Fast Deal Decision (dressed as a flamingo): BB- Luxury stereo & visiondecor.com lounge chair ($5,207)
Coach handbag bonus- Android 3-D smartphone ($1,398 total)

PERFECT ROUND #2

But she's NOT going for the $25,146 Big Deal w/ the boat...

THE BIG DEAL: ...because Lauren, a future teacher, is purchasing Door #2 w/ her $7K in tuition. In #3 was...a $6,149 pizza kitchen. Behind her door is...the $2,579 home gym.

Debra (dressed as a clown) follows the program's twitter feed, but she didn't do so the previous day, so she obviously doesn't give Jonathan an empty paper roll for $500. However, to end the Quickie Deals, Adrianna (dressed as a St. Louis Ram) successfully tosses a football to Sarah (who's also dressed as a football player) to earn them $200 each!

$1K T-U: Title

_ S A

T _ D A Y

Touwana knows about the USA TODAY, even though she might not necessarily read it on a daily basis. Tuesday's panel:

Touwana Tate-Edwards (Chester, VA; originally from Memphis)- A former member of the Navy in Antisubmarine Warfare who attended Whitney Young High School in Chicago w/ First Lady Michelle Obama; she has two children & three grandchildren
Ryne Eubanks (Marion, AR)- A student at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville studying Kinesiology & is the pledge captain for Brothers Under Christ
Brittany Krieger (Eugene, OR)- A registered nurse who works on the Neurology floor & is married to Chris for five yrs.; they've got a baby girl

$2K T-U: Occupation

_ E C _ _ T / S E _ _ _ _ E

A _ _ _ T

Touwanna takes another two C-notes from a SECRET SERVICE AGENT.

Tonight's Trip Wedge: Grand Canyon & Great American West Tour ($5K)
Tuesday/Thursday Gift Tag: Yankee Candle

Eggland's Best Jackpot Round: Song/Artist

Touwanna loses her first turn right away because of the Bankrupt on the Million Dollar Wedge to the right. Second, Ryne calls a dud of T. Third, Brittany calls two R's for $1,800 & buys the E at the end of the third word (& first line), followed by the Lose a Turn. Fourth, Touwanna calls a $500 B & two Y's for another eight bills (& complete the obvious fourth word of BY), but she then gets nailed by the regular Bankrupt next to the Wild Card to the tune of 13 Benjamins. Ryne next Free Plays an A & two O's & I's to clean out the rest of the vowels without spending even a nickel, then he lands on that wedge two more times in a row & calls a $1.5K set of N's & the $500 C at the start of the final word...

R I N _ / O _ / _ I R E

B Y / _ O _ N N Y / C A _ _

...& he solves "RING OF FIRE" BY JOHNNY CASH to close within a thousand of the early lead & keep spinning our giant ring.

SOLE DUD: $400 T (Ryne)
SOLE LaT: Brittany
BANKRUPTS: 2 (both by Touwanna)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $9,700

Current Scores:

Brittany: $0/Touwanna: $3K/Ryne: $2K

Mystery Round: Before & After

First from him are a $1,200 N pairing, five E's, two O's (including one at the beginning of this board) & five T's to add $17.5K to his stake for the puzzle, then come a U buy but then a crucial dud purchase of the sole bad vowel (A), which may deprive him $17,700. Brittany secondly steals four $1K H's while on the Mystery Wedge next to that MDW (the 10 grand was back there, though) & buys the leftover three I's before Bankrupting next to the WC to give back the $3,750 remainder. After Touwanna claims the green 1/2 KIA w/ trip W's for $1.5K, she hits the MDW's other Bankrupt to lose both right back to the house; that's her third tonight. That gives Ryne a big opportunity at the following...

O U T / W I T H / T H E

O _ _ / I N / W I T H

T H E / N E W

_ E _ _ E _

...& he capitalizes w/ "OLD WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW" JERSEY for a $16,700 lead!

SOLE DUD: A (Ryne)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (women)

Current Scores:

Brittany: NIL/Touwanna: $3K/Ryne: $19,700

Prize Puzzle Round: Same Letter

Brittany's back in command, but she's lost it right away w/ an R call. Second, Touwanna Bankrupts out next to the WC for the second time this evening (& fourth of any kind overall). Third, Ryne puts in two $300 T's & two E's, but then comes LaT. On Brittany's second chance in the round, she runs into the other normal Bankrupt; that's her second of the match. Touwanna follows up w/ an N for the gift package, a $300 L but then the sole negative vowel (I). Ryne's following letters are two A's, the SL of six C's for an additional $2,100 & quad O's, but he hits LaT for the second time in the round. Once Brittany calls the $450 H & takes care of the U's...

C H O C O L A T E

C O C O N U T

C U _ C A _ E _

...she eats a few CHOCOLATE COCONUT CUPCAKES for her first $200 & a trip to where she might eat more of those, the Outrigger Reef on the Beach from US Airways Vacations worth $8,535.

DUDS: I (Touwanna), $400 R (Brittany)
LaTs: 2 (both by Ryne)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (women again)

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: SS6884158 (Scott S.)

Brittany gets closer to first place w/ some SOARING EAGLES, which boosts her winnings to $11,735 in cash & HI.

R4: Things

Her first consonant call is the $800 S at the end of this two-word solution, then she goes to the vowel shop to buy the E at the end of the first word but an R call ends her turn. Furthermore, Touwanna goes Bankrupt next to top dollar for the first time all game (& it's her fifth of this episode). Afterwards, Ryne calls for two T's at $600 per appearance, buys an A & calls N for negative before it's Last Chance Mode time...

_ A _ _ T _ _ E

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ T S

...& the consonants still on this board are worth $1.5K each. Touwanna later wants quadruple H's...

H A L _ T _ M E

H _ _ H L _ _ H T S

...after all of her Bankrupts get edited out of our HALFTIME HIGHLIGHTS of the night, her money's tripled again.

DUDS:

During Speed-Up: C (Touwanna), D (Ryne)

Topic: Thing

This answer, which should actually be a Phrase, starts out thusly as:

_ _ R E

_ E N _ _ S

He DCMAs out of the game & his best guess was WIRE FENCES at the start of the countdown. Because he didn't show any flashes of PURE GENIUS, he definitely won't be driving a Winnebago home. He leaves w/ $19,700 in his pockets.
