LMaD: She's a LFaT of the show as Wednesday's first trader- Britney from Tampa, FL (dressed as the twitter bluebird; she follows both this program's & Wayne's twitter feeds). There are cars behind each of the three curtains, but just in case she thinks she's gonna get ZONKED, she can have a $50 bankroll loaded w/ $100s. Her final answer's Curtain #1. Actually, there's only one new car on offer in this deal...
#1- 2012 KIA Forte LX ($16,120)
#2 (Transportation)- Broken-down Buick
#3 (Wheels)- Carpool
...& she's got it, even though her new husband Kyle Clothesoff (dressed as a cop; they got married about two weeks after this episode was filmed) was of no help at all to her- PERFECT DEAL!
(Note: Just before the first break, I see somebody wearing a replica of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.)

In the Quickie Deal department, Tina recalls that "meble" meant furniture for $200 & Amanda (dressed as a Mexican) brought an egg at Tiffany's request for $500 (I wonder if Britney had one too)!

Kristen solves "JACK AND THE BEANSTALK" to triple her money.
Wednesday's Featured Resort: Holvaloa Inn w/ Bed and Breakfast.com airfare ($6,590)
IHOP Jackpot Round: Phrase
She starts by calling two $500 N's, buying two A's, calling a $400 R & two D's for the Wild Card, then she buys an I but then gets into Lose a Turn trouble. Second, Heather wastes a spin because of the Million Dollar Wedge's right Bankrupt. Third, Michael calls out two T's for five grand & a $2.5K H, purchases three E's & calls the $900 S set before we get...
S _ _ _ / A N D
S T E A D _ /
_ I N S / T H E / R A _ E
...& he gets the Aesop moral "SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE" for $8,150.
SOLE LaT: Kristen
SOLE BANKRUPT: Heather
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $11,200
Michael: $8,150/Kristen: $3K (WC)/Heather: $0
Mystery Round: Before & After
Heather picks up a $600 T at the end of the first of three words, then four S's turn those six bills into 30, after which she buys an E (the second letter of the middle word) but then the sole baddie vowel (A). Second, Michael calls for an R, but that's also a dud. Third, Kristen calls a couple N's for a thousand dollars & a $400 D, then she buys twin O's & puts in two C's for 1,200 more bucks & a $500 P for the green 1/2 KIA. The board as we see it currently...
S P _ _ T
S E C O N D
C O _ S _ N S
...she's correct w/ "SPLIT SECOND" COUSINS for another $2,850.
DUDS: A (Heather), $800 R (Michael)
Michael: $8,150/Kristen: $5,850 (1/2 KIA)(WC)/Heather: NIL
Prize Puzzle Round: Same Letter
Our current leader Michael begins w/ $1,050 worth of three S's, two E's & an A, but he then gets let down by the I. Second, Kristen captures two R's at $300 each, quad T's for another $3,600 & the two O's down at the bottom prior to Bankrupting next to where the WC formerly was to fork over both pieces of cardboard & $3,950. Third for Heather are two $600 B's but then the same Bankrupt, her second tonight. That gives Michael a chance to pad his lead...

R4: Movie Quote
His next letters are four S's at the bottom for 18 Benjamins, an O, two E's, a $700 T couplet, an $800 H, five U's & the A to finish off the vowels, then coming his way is the LaT. Once Kristen calls the $10K P pairing, she calls up the $400 L but then goes Bankrupt the same way she did before to flush down $10,400; both women have two Bankrupts to their credit. Afterwards, Heather calls the $500 N but gets the same fate, so that's her third & likely final one of this match, which also means Michael...
_ O U _ _ / U P / T H E

...Kristen blanks out w/ $11,200 on the line. After Mike calls the three free O's...
W _ L L - D _ S _ R _ _ D
P R O M O T _ O N
...he only gets the first two syllables of the solution, so he's still not definitely the champ just yet (& $1,600's in his bank). Kristen then gets a hold of that E quartet...
