1. MANGOES
2. WEATHER (also HEAVIER)
3. 113 = 9*(25 - 7) - 50 + 1
4. TOLERATE
5. POUNCES
6. 173 = 7*25 - 2
7. TSUNAMI (also ANIMIST, and MINUTIA after time)
8. 695 = ((4*10 - 5)*4 - 1)*5 [7 off]
9. [N/A -- chosen; the answer is MISERABLE]

Round 8 was very tough; the best possible is two away with 690 = (4*4*(5 - 1) + 5)*10 or 690 = (5*10 - 4)*5*(4 - 1).
