TPiRecap: 19 June 2012


And so it ends... almost. Two weeks from tomorrow will be the Fourth of July Spectacular, and I'll hold off on posting any sort of final statistics until then (it will count as part of this "week" of shows). After that, the Priceless Summer officially begins and TPiRecap Towers will be closed until we reconvene in September for the beginning of Season 41. Oh, I'm not saying there won't be the odd TPiRetro posts -- in fact, I have one slated to go tomorrow -- or occasional commentary on any news that might come my way regarding the new season, but we're officially going into "summer maintenance" mode after today.

And with that, let's get going with today's extravaganza, a make-good airing (the only one this season) from a Presidential pre-emption back in October.

Episode #: 5685K
Airdate: 18 June 2012 (originally scheduled for 7 October 2011)
VTR date: 18 July 2011
First Four: Christopher, Valerie, Christopher A., Dana (R-L)
Today's Models: Manuela AbreƔlez, Amber Lancaster, Rachel Reynolds

So odd to see Drew back in a bow tie, now that he's apparently eschewed neckwear altogether...

$6,257, $7,562, and $8,962 all looked good here. Even $5,748 was a possibility if Mike wanted to be especially brutal and make this a cheapo hot tub. Not exactly an auspicious beginning, but it's early yet...

But it's okay, says Valerie -- she just bought a new car anyway! That's looking on the bright side, at least.

On the less than bright side, we're on course to add one more episode to the list of Season 40 skunkings...
