It is what it is. I'm sure some of the more cynical/paranoid types out there are no doubt questioning whethere there actually is a $25,000 card on the board at all, and aren't prepared to take the show on its S&P-enforced word that there is one. These are the same people who probably also believe all world leaders are under the mental domination of alien invaders. Conspiracy theories do have their place, but the game show genre is not one of them. (Unless, of course, Alex Jones ever decides to appear on one...)

RALLY TIME!

This one was easier than I thought it'd be; although I knew that shuffleboard table was $600 from previous appearances, it was only when the shoes were revealed to be Prada that I knew this was as close to a forced win as we're gonna get these days. Is this the beginning of a turnaround? We can only hope.

Row Bypass time! We're getting quite a bit of those of late...

Drew: “Hey, guess what we got for ya?”
Donald: “What?”
Drew: “NOTHIN'! You gotta start down there!” ^^;;

His T-shirt, by the way, is worthy of mention. We miss Rachel too. But she'll be back in Season 42, no worries. ;^)

Shocker on my part. I thought this was screaming $4,111. Can't complain about a win though!

But what I can complain about is having to ship someone off to Leftover Island, which I'm in danger of having to do with Sherita. But maybe she's got a last-minute good bid in her yet that can save her from this fate.

Then again, maybe Donald will pre-empt her.

Dice Game:

Uh-oh. Dice Game for a cheapo Chevy Spark. This bodes ill, unless Donald's first roll is good...
