TPiRecap: 16 June 2011 (You're Not Gonna BELIEVE This One Edition)

Episode #: 5614K
Airdate: 16 June 2011
VTR: 31 May 2011
First Four: Jessica, Amy, Disean, Breanna (R-L)
Today's Models: Amber Lancaster, Gwendolyn Osbourne, Rachel Reynolds

For various reasons, I just want to forget yesterday ever happened. And I'm not just talking about the skunking either. But that's a discussion for another time and another place. Right now, I've a job to do, so let's just get to it.

(As an aside, the yellow border is missing from the lower-left square (below the 6). Probably some minor damage the prop sustained backstage. They need to fix it though, because it looks just awful on camera.)

I can't think of too many better ways to put yesterday's skunktastic mess behind us than a Bonkers! ace to lead off the day. Well done, Jessica!

WIN!

If this were any other refrigerator, this game would've been much harder. As it is, Elmira Stove Works produces some of the most expensive major appliances the show offers, so this was pretty much a no-brainer. But hey, two in a row!

Now that's coming back from the morgue for ya!

Well, all good things must come to an end... case in point, Disean must now play Gas Money:
2011 Dodge Caliber Main Street (2L, CVAT, split folding rear seat)

$17,539
$15,557
$18,990
$16,715
$19,725

$17,539
$3,000

Go on...
$16,715
$4,000
$7,000
STOP
($15,557: $1,000; $18,990: Car; $19,725: $2,000)

It's a loss because he didn't win the car, but with seven grand on the table, it's hard to blame him. That said, I had $18,990 targeted from the start as the car's price (which is the first time I've ever been able to do that in this game), so I might've held on for at least one more pick. Again, though, $7,000 is a lot of money to turn down when you're in this situation...

Well, it wasn't quite as bad as I was fearing, so that's good... Believe it or not, having only two Zero Rule Violations is actually an improvement for this game lately. If only she hadn't panicked on the last chance...

The buzzards haven't been eating too well this week, so right now Breanna's looking especially good to them. Let's see if she can escape the fate of all carrion, even though she doesn't have the last-bid advantage...

...Nancy. Just between you and me... what kind of show d'ya think this is, anyway?

Theoretically, it's still possible for her to pull this out, though. All she has to do is get the dispenser right on theeeeeyeah Hans is toast.

She bids $6 for the dispenser. I'm not even gonna bother. (It's $26.) Even Hans doesn't bother falling over the cliff, instead just sort of dangling there, not even giving Nancy the satisfaction.

However, the Threshold tells a story: There is none! $20-30-40 would've killed Hans too! That's twice this season, compared to I-don't-know-how-many years that was the safest route to victory.

Ugh. Let's just move on.
