TPiRecap: 7 May 2013



Episode # 6342K
Airdate 7 May 2013
VTR 26 March 2013
First Four David, Kelsey, Ronald, Nancy (R-L)
Today's Models Manuela Abreález, Amber Lancaster, Rob Wilson

You Can't Make This Stuff Up Dep't.: David's last name is, indeed, Cleveland.

1. Trip to Palm Springs, CA (limo, 3n, HotelZoso, hot air balloon ride) (GG)

Grand Game:
  • Miracle-Gro Potting Mix (8qt)
  • Capzasin quick pain relief gel
  • Ultra Tide detergent
  • Hägen-Dazs ice cream (14oz)
  • Allegra allergy relief (5 tablets)
  • Gold Bond medicated body powder (4oz)

My gut says to avoid the potting mix and the Allegra.

"Win" $10
(Potting mix: $5.19; Detergent: $9.69; Ice cream: $4.49; Allergy relief: $6.47)

As God is my witness, I thought that Capzasin was a trap. Turns out the Allegra was the trap instead. >_< Not at all nice, guys.

Scooters

Very clever, Richards... Both of the realistic prices, $12,410 and $10,578, are not only plausible, but they both end in even numbers so I can't even use that trick to logic my way out of it. Of the two, however, I definitely find myself favoring the $10,578 option; most motorcycles and scooters this show offers tend to have prices that end in 9, so doubling that would give you a total ending in 8. $12,410 would mean each scooter is $6,205, and it's rare to see things like these Vespas end in -05.

But let's see which way Lisa ends up going...

The good news about the fact Ronald and Drew are headed for the GPT is that we don't have to worry about Stack the Deck being behind it; we've already played our GP game for the day. However, One Away is only marginally a more forgiving game of late:
2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS (AT, 2.4L, carpeted mats, paint/fabric prot; RW)

I must say that I'm leaning toward $22,361. On the other hand, this is the same gut that led me wildly astray back at Grandy, so...

The computer's price looked a bit too low to me, but because I always second, third, and sometimes fourth-guess myself, I couldn't bring myself to lock that in. Ah well.

The only other option that it realistically could've been was $8,898, and that looked wrong on many levels. ($9,865 was just a tad too much for a basic trip without tack-ons.)

Kelsey and David are in the position of feeling the sting of a sentence to Leftover Island, but it's still possible for one of them to avoid it...

Then again, maybe not. As the Ohio River cackles in glee at the thought of two visitors for the price of one, Nolan will try to win the second car game of the day, Master Key:
  1. Six Apple iPods (2 64GB Touches, 2 16GB Nanos, & 2 2GB Shuffles) ($1,094 [1]; RW)
  2. Gucci designer accessories (approx. $1,200 [2]; MA)
  3. 2013 Dodge Journey (AT, 2.4L, American Value Pkg; $20,585 [3]; AL)

I will not be beaten by handbags! ;^)

For those keeping score, that's three car games in a row that've been won outright, which isn't bad at all lately -- especially when one of them was One Away! ^^;
