I actually thought he wiped out at the $4.99 bag, but got a surprise. I knew that gum was trouble, though.

Card Game:

Side note: At first I thought they'd replaced the bidding display with a plasma screen that only mimicked a classic Eggcrate, but it's still the same old electromechanical wonder. It just looks like a spruced-up flatscreen from the default camera angle. (When the picture focuses on the display itself you can clearly see the numbers are still composed of incandescent bulbs.)

Lorraine is officially smarter than I am. I would've gone one more card at least, just because the Yarus was a loaded one.

    • VIP access to Gabana 1800 Club

They really need to update the display software, I think, if we get more contestants wanting to change their bids. It obviously takes a bit too long to re-enter a bid once it's "locked in" the way things are currently.
