Ashley's wearing a One Away-themed T-shirt ("Oh Mighty Sound Effects Lady, Do I Have 25 Numbers Right?", obviously a birthday shirt), which shoots Drew's theory about how you should never wear a shirt for your favorite game if you want to actually play it:
2013 Honda CR-Z (CBT, 1.5L, integrated motor assist, all-season mats; GOS)

I'm thinking along the lines of $20,924.

Manuela's on trilon duty, which leads to this funny exchange:

Drew: "Manuela, you're one of our luckiest models ever, right?"
Manuela: "You always say that, and it doesn't work when you say it -- so let's say I'm unlucky, so I'm lucky."
Drew: "She's the unluckiest model we've ever had... you're playin' this game with Manuela, here? Good luck!"

Which is, of course, almost the total opposite of my gut feeling.

1 right? HONK
2 right? HONK

Drew: "I can't believe you have two numbers right after Manuela put her unlucky mitts all over the numbers..."

3 right? ...see?

CAR

Unfortunately, a better-than-recent-history showing in the pricing portion didn't produce a better result in the luck portion.

I haven't had to banish anyone to Leftover Island for a little bit. I'd hate for Joseph to be the first, even though he's been one-dollaring Tracie for the last two IUFBs. I'd say he has the advantage, because he technically does, but he had that last time and you saw what happened.

Well, it is a perfectly valid (if cold-blooded) strategy...

Magic Hashtag:

  2. Beachcomber round hot tub (GOS)

Is it my imagination, or is this game getting more airplay this season than in the recent past?
