Even with that horrible botch on the picture frame, Zachary still managed to finish under the Threshold! You don't see a win like that every day, definitely.

I thought fabric softener and drain opener for the last two, personally. She still did the wise thing though. (And speaking of snack food brands, maybe Frito Lay will want to pay for a product plug now...)

Okay... it may not seem like it, but this is winnable even now. All you need to do is stay calm, don't panic, and by all means pick the 3 for the tens digit!

They actually used a zero for the last digit? First time in forever for this game. I'm legitimately surprised, again.

  1. Don't you hate shows that have "Money Game" and "Cover-Up" in the same show?

    2. It's just that they're both turntable just a car games, and it's fine when one's in there, but if you have both in there, it's kind of lazy.
