Shannon, the good news is that you can leave here with four nice prizes without lifting a finger. The bad news is that your game is Temptation, which means you won't be winning this:

Blooper-reel moment: The fireplace's price tag gets caught in Amber's skirt, so when she lifts it up... well! (Nothing was shown on camera that shouldn't be, though. The Morality Police can officially stand down.) Drew, of course, cracks up, as does Amber.

WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?
($21,370)

Temptation begins Season 40 the same way it's begun every season since Bob left... and ended every season since Bob left... and "in-betweened" every season since Bob left. I'm totally at a loss to explain this. There are plenty harder car games than this that've been won multiple times (Stack the Deck, That's Too Much!, and Triple Play all come to mind) since we saw our last Tempty winner, so difficulty isn't necessarily a factor here. (And let's not forget, Tempty's winless streak is slightly misleading, since bailouts count as losses and some players have taken the buyout when they actually had the car price correct.)

Anyone else getting a bad feeling about today?

Ah, life in central Ohio... Scrolling news bulletin from WBNS about wild animals that escaped from a game farm in Zanesville -- a grizzly, a mountain lion, and a monkey are all running loose in Muskingum County as I type this.


Makes me long for my childhood home of New England even more than I usually do...

Bullseye:
Trip to New Orleans, LA (6n, The Roosevelt New Orleans, Presidential suite, spa treatment, dinner; $27,845)

...That is not a typo, folks, and your eyes aren't playing tricks. This is a twenty-seven thousand dollar trip. Which makes this, for all practical purposes, a car game in and of itself. (It's actually worth $2,494 more than the total of everything from Temptation!) On top of that, it's being offered in what is traditionally one of Price's easiest games to win!

But let's see how it plays out, because I don't trust this...

  • Nestlé Butterfinger candy bar
  • Lipton herbal chamomile tea bags (20)
  • Saran premium plastic wrap
  • S&W garbanzo beans
  • La Crème raspberry yogurt (4-pack)

Tricky... but not evil. He can do this!

What more needs to be said? Mike served up a softball, and Ernest hit it right out of the park for one of, if not the, most expensive trip Price has ever offered outside of a Showcase. Well done!

Doris actually almost changed her mind in mid-switch, but in the end the Peanut Gallery convinced her to go through with switching. Should've listened to your instincts instead of the mob...
