FEATURED TRIP: Ireland from Aer Lingus Vacation store worth $5,500

Jackpot Round: FOOD AND DRINK

Felicia leads off w/ an S and a $2,500 T. But after some vowel purchases, she BANKRUPTS near $650 to lose the $2,900 remainder. Secondly, Nick takes three N's and O's (the latter came from FP), but nothing more from an R. Third, Kim lights up three D's for $2,100, but that amount gets taken right back by the other normal BANKRUPT. After Felicia falls victim to the same BANKRUPT she got before, Nick says two Z's...

Kim secondly calls for two T's on the Mystery Wedge next to the MDW and turns down the $2K offer...for her second BANKRUPT this evening. Third, Felicia sees an N and two I's appear, but next is a bad E purchase. After Nick strikes out again w/ F, Kim BANKRUPTS next to top dollar (her third one overall). Back in control, Felicia puts up three L's and a B...
