Bonus: Trip to Newport Beach, CA (limo, 4n, Hyatt Regency Newport Beach. dinner cruise; $2,912 [1]; RW)

And that's why I can never be down on G-R, folks. Every now and then, they do have reliable sources for "mystery" trip prices, and this was one of those times.

Hmm... $21,473 seems legit to me. Or possibly $21,547. One of the two. We shall see.

Well, well, well. That's a rare occurrence.

Unfortunately, all three possibilities now look good for that hundreds digit. I'm leaning more towards 4, myself, but I suspect Clementine will go with the 5. (Standard contestant strategy these days seems to be "Always pick the highest digits in each of the last three columns until proven otherwise.")

Knowing how the Internet thinks, I'm sure somebody'll put out a call to check under that rug for a banana peel or something. You know there'll be a conspiracy theory up about this by late afternoon. ¬_¬

The good news, however: Ralph's a golfer. He's the only golfer on stage, in fact; Drew, Manuela, and Rob all don't play the game. That should hopefully give him the advantage, even when putting from the first line.

Drew's Inspiration Putt:
WAY too hard; it bounces off the wall and ends up rolling clean off the green! "It's just that easy, Ralph!"

Ralph's First Putt:
Straight and true... but just too far to the right.

Ralph's Second Putt:
He compensated for the angle this time... and it pays off!
WIN!

Let's hear it for second chances! And Ralph celebrates Samoan-style, if you know what I mean! ;^)

Shawn, Amy... it's time we talked.

The two of you have been in the Row since we started, and this is the final IUFB. That means at least one of you is getting shipped off to Leftover Island, and there's nothing I or anyone else can do about that.

You can, however, still keep us from having to send both of you there. And that's entirely up to you and how well you bid in this, your last chance to escape that terrible fate. Fingers crossed...

I think, possibly, getting rid of the 8 would be the wisest move.
