And while Rudolph takes a moment to gather up the shatterd remnants of the hopes and dreams Drew was joking with Chelsea bout, Chelsea herself gets to play Flip Flop:
Howard Miller 8pc dining room group (Noritake dinnerware service for 8; MA)

Bit of a "Turn Back the Clock" moment here, playing for a furniture group with no add-ons and in a game where its price is relevant to gameplay.

97
35

I'm thinking $7,935 myself. Howard Miller may be, traditionally, the "expensive" furniture label on this show, but it's not gonna be almost $10,000 without some help.

Chelsea agrees with me and Flips:

Drew: "Y'know, if you're not sure, you can always ask Rudolph, I'm sure he'd be happy to help you out..."

She started off okay, but got flustered into Deer-in-the-Headlights, and that's what cost her in the end. Not pretty.

Vindication awaits for yon Rudolph (we hope) with Bullseye:
Trip to Berlin, Germany (5n, Radisson Blu, daily breakfast, self-guided tour & Berlin Residence Orchestra; $8,570; MA)

  • Betty Crocker Fruit Gushers snacks
  • Kraft tartar sauce

At first I thought Rudolph was playing this like Grocery Game, thinking he had to add up the total of his purchases, a common point of confusion amongst players presented with either one or the other game. But he certainly aced it on that last pick! Well done, after his frustrating time of it in the Row!

Gas Money:
2013 Ford Fiesta SE (1.6L, AC, tire pressure monitor; MA)

No groaning, please, we'll just have to make the best of it...

$19,410
$16,995
$17,950
$18,299
$15,595

It's a Fiesta and Fiestas are cheap, so I fully expect the ARP to be $15,595 this time. That goes above and beyond the emerging "rule" for Gas Money, that the pink slip is usually behind the lowest-priced multiple of 5 on the board.

Pick #1: $19,410

Attention naysayers: Sheryll decided to continue despite being offered the highest possible buyout in this game. Therefore, if she doesn't pick wisely... that one's not the game's own fault, nor Mike's.

Pick #4: $15.595
$10000

Argh. So close, and yet so not --

...er... wait... hold on a sec...

[double-checks tape, triple-checks result]

...SHE WON!?

Well. That'll teach me to go on autopilot! Sheryll is the day's Robin Hood Deluxe for that win, our first in quite some time for Gas Money!

Will it be enough to silence the naysayers? Probably not. But it's nice to see regardless!

Nice day with Gas Money actually being won for a change and some fun contestants!

3 comments:

  1. Trust me, I was shocked about her winning as well.

  2. Finally, Gas Money is won! O Happy Day!

    Just like at the end of the famous Christmas tune, Rudolph gets the glory in the end (At least through a pricing game win). ;)

    Race Game...accessories would have screwed me over, probably. Would have gotten two if in the same situation.

    Cover-Up...meh, the "numbers replaced with something silly" gag again. This was something I hoped would go one and done...

    I love how contestants have caught on to the general tune of Cliffhangers this season. ^^

  3. Mandoline is spelled correctly there, as it's the cooking utensil and not the musical instrument.
