Kayla's NOT in THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE- she's on this show winning cash &/or prizes amongst this panel:
Kayla Manthey (Puyallup, WA)- A trauma medic in the Air Force reserves in 446 A.S.T.S. at Joint Base Lewis-McChord who's also a landscape photographer & has competed in a few teenage pageants
Briana Peterson (home)- A compensation data analyst for a local sports brand & a graduate student at Williamette University studying Business
Shawn Hart (Roseberg, OR)- The Senor Minister at the Garden Valley Church of Christ who's married to Kristen for 20 yrs.; he's also Loons the Clown
$2K T-U: Living Things (Megaword alert):
_ _ R _ S _ N T H E M U _ S
Shawn leaves out an M in his response, so Kayla gets the tripler from some CHRYSANTHEMUMS.
Wednesday's Featured Trip: South Africa courtesy of Vayama.com ($8,400)
Centrum Jackpot Round: Food & Drink
Kayla first goes to work by calling for two S's on the bottom line while on $2.5K and buying an E, A & three O's. Her next call of R doesn't make the puzzle, though. Second, Briana picks four N's for $2K & the blue 1/2 KIA before that wheel forces her to Lose a Turn; just before she finished spinning, she would've called D for dud anyway. Third, Shawn calls another baddie of L. Kayla then goes Bankrupt next to the Wild Card to give up $4,250 for good. After Briana runs into the other regular one to lose her plate & the two grand, Shawn claims the other 1/2 KIA via two $500 C's, calls a $450 T, buys two I's & LaTs out. After Kayla calls the two Y's for 12 bills...
_ O O E Y
C I N N A _ O N

...she gets some GOOEY CINNAMON STICKY BUNS out of the closest oven to slightly increase her total winnings to $4,200.
DUDS: $300 L (Shawn), $500 R (Kayla)
LaTs: 2 (Briana & Shawn)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (women)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $10,350
Mystery Round: Same Letter
Briana has a $550 start because of an N, then she hits the same Bankrupt Kayla got to lose it right back. Shawn secondly Free PLAYS two E's & collects two L's to take the WC, two R's for $1,800 (while on the same pink $900 wedge where he picked it up), an I, a $600 S pairing, an A quartet & the SL of five M's to add to his current bank $4.5K. At this point...

SOLE BANKRUPT: Briana
Kayla: $4,200/Briana: $0/Shawn: $6,400 (WC)
Prize Puzzle Round: Song Lyrics
He calls four $3.5K N's, but his WC use backfires on him when he calls S. Second for Kayla are twin T's for a grand, triple A's, quadruple E's but then the right side of the Million Dollar Wedge Bankrupts her out of $500 (both ladies have two Bankrupts apiece), as well as likely the bonus trip because Briana then...

Maxwell House Regular BR #169: Briana takes out the envelope from the E in GAME.
Nearly half the letters from just RSTLNE headed her way:

HDMO result in very limited help...
S H _ R _

...& her total winnings of $14,006 won't be boosted by a $35K SHARP CURVE.
While Vanna's holding a plastic bag at the end, Pat reads some of the 99 things you can do w/ one from a list.
Jody Clark (Garretson, SD)- A sales associate who played the classroom version of the game against the rest of his class in his later high school years
Barb Hougas (Denison, IA)- Pharmacist
CHAMPION: Joel Pool (whose two-day cash winnings total $48,400)
I doubt there's something about singing from this first topic board:
IT'S OPENING NIGHT ON BROADWAY!
MORE THAN ONE MEANING
I DON'T GIVE A... (each correct word/words end w/ -AM)
After starting $800 in the hole, Joel's in first at halftime w/ $2,600 & leads Jody by $600 & Barb by a thou. When the Daily Double's picked in the middle of Broadway, Jody has control & $3,600, as well as a $1K lead over his opposition. To double his current leading margin:
"The Wiz" opened on Jan. 5, 1975; this other Oz-set musical on Oct. 30, 2003.
"What is 'Wicked'?"...is good for a $2K cushion w/ $4,600. He's $1K in Lock Game Territory at the end of this round w/ $7K, followed by Barb w/ three & Joel at $2,800.
SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $800 (I Don't Give a...)
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3K
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $3,800
Double J! Rundown:
WHAT THE X-RAY SHOWS
A TOUCH OF ROBERT FROST IN THE AIR
ENDS IN "TH"
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
LYRICS OF THE TOP 40 SONG
On the third answer of the round regarding Company Names, Joel's in a DD situation w/ $3,600. He puts half on this line w/ this information bit:
August Horch named his car company this after translating Horch, which means "Hark!" or "hear", into Latin.
"What is Audi?"...I would've guessed Porsche, but Audi's indeed the one for $5,400. Before Final J! (meaning the $800 "TH" clue gets left in the dust), Jody claims the second DD of the round at the end of the Robert Frost answers w/ $15K; he's followed by Joel at $10,600 & Barb sitting on $8,200. His next bet's four biggies:
It's the Robert Frost poem that says "Good fences make good neighbors".
"What is Fences?" is so wrong; the title was Mending Wall.
SOLE ATTEMPTED TS: $1,600 (A Touch of Robert Frost in the Air)
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $4K
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $5,600
Entering the Final:
FJ! SUBJECT: Animals.
A 2005 study reported that this animal named for an island has, pound-for-pound, the most powerful bite of any mammal.
Barb Hougas put "What is the komodo dragon?"...as did Jody Clark...NO- Barb drops to $5,200 & Jody's out of it w/ $900. Joel Pool thought "What Tazmanian Devil"...I don't know what it is w/ him not coming up w/ the complete beginning for FJ! responses recently, but I do know he's still perfect to DOUBLE to $21,200! Three-appearance sum: $69,600.
