Not exactly an auspicious start, though it seemed obvious the 8 was to be avoided on the last pick; no way those Breville appliances were $450 or less, after all.

WIN!

No, that's not cheating, unlike the more celebrated case of a player hitting the reveal button before the host expected it; Johnie actually played the game first. But I was under the impression that they moved the button to a more discreet location on the side of the gameboard to prevent this sort of thing. Oh well.

(CC1: Okay... just this once, I'll give the Hollis Law Firm a pass, because Paxil is some pretty hardcore stuff that I myself was misperscribed a few years back. What that garbage does to you, if you take it when you don't need it, is not pretty. From one who knows firsthand.)

(They're still shameless ambulance chasers, however.)

Brad seems to think the price reveals are still done like in the days of the old Ferris-wheel set (i.e., under pullcards). What is it with contestants wanting to control the games today? Ah well, a win's a win...
