Heidi barely gets the second word of LIFELONG FRIENDS in for the tripler.
Monday's WG: JW Marriott Desert Springs Palm Desert ($5,165)
Monday/Wednesday/Friday Gift Tag: Vegas.com
IHOP Jackpot Round: Quotation
Category Wipe of the Week: A WG-like car
Heidi's first stop is the Bankrupt next to $2.5K. After Jeff secondly gets the same fate, Asia calls two T's for that trip, two R's for the green 1/2 KIA & $1K & three M's for another $7.5K, then she buys two O's & A's, calls two D's while on Jackpot for another thou, purchases four E's & calls the $550 H before buying the sole dud vowel on this board (U), likely costing her a plate & $14,215 in cash & California. Back to Heidi, she calls the back-to-back S's for $1K the other 1/2 KIA & a $300 P...
T O / D R E A M / T H E
_ M P O S S _ _ _ E
D R E A M
...the next-to-last word of this quote was missolved as "INCREDIBLE" the last time, but she does exactly say "TO DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM" from "Man of La Mancha" to keep the extra $1,300.
SOLE DUD OF THE ROUND: U (Asia)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Heidi & Jeff)
FINAL UNWON JACKPOT AMOUNT: $9,850
Heidi: $4,300 (1/2 KIA)

...he solves "BORN TO BE WILD" OATS for $1,950.
Asia: BUPKIS/Heidi: $4,300 (1/2 KIA)/Jeff: $1,950 (WC)
Prize Puzzle Round: Things
Asia begins the wheel-spinning & letter-choosing process for this round of play w/ the same Bankrupt from two rounds ago. Second, Heidi puts in four $500 R's but then says N for no. Third for Jeff are a $400 W at the beginning of the last word but then the right Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge, costing him both that much money & the WC; that's his second tonight. On Asia's next turn, she takes two $300 T's, an E but then D for dud. Heidi follows w/ two S's (including the obvious one at the end) for an extra $1,800, quadruple A's, a $300 P, twin O's, a couple of F's for $1,600 additional & a $300 Y, but she then buys the sole negative vowel (I) to likely lose out on the KIA Soul, in addition to the mystery vacation & $5.5K. After a dud of F by Jeff while on top dollar, Asia calls a $1,600 pair of L's at the end of the second word to leave only the U up there...
A / F _ L L
A R R A Y / O F

S E Q U _ L _ / &
_ R _ Q _ E L S
Asia knows SEQUELS & PREQUELS do exist to be $25 shy of $12K in cash & trip.
She initially puts up a $500 L, then she buys four A's from the vowel shop, calls for the $500 S at the end but then the T stops her. Heidi secondly calls the repeating L's for a C-note & the $300 N leading off this puzzle...
N _ A _ A R A

SOLE DUD: $800 T (Asia)
Asia: $11,975 in cash & trip/Heidi: $5,600/Jeff: $1,950
Last Chance Round: In the Kitchen
After Pat initially hits the Bankrupt next to where the WC formerly was, consonants are worth $1,450 each. Jeff starts out his part of the round w/ two T's, then three S's on his second try...

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding cardboard): $400
Big Money Round #123: The new automobile of the week's a '12 Rogue FWD. Asia's BR envelope comes from the M in GAME.
The first letter is:
T _ _ _ _
_ _ _
CDMI puts up at least a couple letters...
T _ I C _
_ _ _
...but she gets the first word wrong as TRICK; the THICK FOG phases out the $30K she could've won & she leaves w/ $11,975 in cash & St. Thomas.
J!: Hannah Spector's challenged by:
Kyle Roll (Richmond, VA!)- Compliance analyst
Alex Wright (Upper Arlington, OH)- University administrator
These are the week's first six categories:
SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR
DR. JANE GOODALL (video clues from her)
Hannah has the early lead w/ $3,400 at the halfway point, followed by Kyle w/ $2,200 & Alex w/ $1,200; however, while Trebek's interviewing Alex, $2K's given back to Alex because of an incorrect response reversal (for a total of $3,200). On the next-to-last clue regarding those Sportsmen of the Year (& of this round overall), Hannah intercepts the Daily Double & leads Kyle $7,200-$4,600; Alex's dropped to $2,400. The champion wagers $600.
1954: British track man
"Who is Sebastian...I don't know" doesn't work. She was thinking of Sebastian Coe, but the correct guy was Roger Bannister, so she slightly dips to $6,600. Alex starts Double Jeopardy! w/ $3,400.
SOLE TRIPLE STUMPER OF THE ROUND (attempted): $1K (Dr. Jane Goodall)
A YEAR ENDING IN 12
HERE I AM...
Alex's just taken Hannah's post-R1 score of $6,600 by the time he's picked a DD from the center of By George, but Hannah's at $8,200 now; Kyle's down to $3,800. He goes for an extra $2K & a $400 lead on this clue:
"The Sophisticated Poll Watcher's Guide"
"Who is Gallup?"...yes indeed for $8,600 & a slight lead. And speaking of A Year Ending in 12, the $1,200 clue gives him the other DD opportunity of the round; he's now $400 behind the champ w/ $10,600, but Kyle's not too far off either of them w/ $9,800. To regain the lead w/ 3K more dollars, his next answer is:
Ponce de Leon reaches the Turks & Caicos islands.
"What is 1512?"...exactly to move him to $13,600! Kyle, however, SWEEPS Here I Am... to put her in first place w/ $16,200!
ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $2,400
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS OF THE ROUND: $800 ("You" Rock)
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $3,200
Heading into the Final:
FJ! SUBJECT: Movie Directors.
On visiting RKO in 1939, he described the studio as the biggest electric train set any boy ever had.
Hannah Spector responded "Who is Orson Wells?"...best known for "Citizen Kane", he was right to have the champ finish at the $19K level. Alex Wright...got it to go to $25,600 & so did Kyle Roll (after crossing out Alfred Hitchcock), but she only wagered $6,600 to fall $1,600 short of the championship. In any event, Hannah leaves w/ $30,201.
"The Newlywed Game":
6 PM: 8
6:30 PM: 7
7: "Jeopardy!" & "The Price is Right"
6: "Let's Make a Deal" & "Wheel of Fortune"
