I admit, I groaned when I saw this game, but that was a good win to kick things off (and nice to see an expensive trip again!).

One Wrong Price:
  1. LG washer & dryer (AL)
  2. Pro-Form treadmill (GOS)
  3. MHP gas barbecue (RR)

The grill looks like a cheapie and I'm pretty sure Pro-Form treadmills aren't a $3,000 brand either. That's my pick.

AND A GOOD PICK IT WAS, TOO!

The Peanut Gallery didn't seem to like it though; I'll just bet they wanted her to take the grill, on the false assumption that this show wouldn't offer a stage prize worth under $1,000 outside of Clock Game.

I KNEW IT
($23,175)

I had a feeling that was a number she should've left alone. She actually came closer than most people have in recent memory, which if nothing else proves it can be done.

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed of late that the more chips somebody wins in this game, the less they actually take away from the board? That's weird, if not disheartening.

  1. Since I actually saw this episode today, I may as well comment on some things.

    Bonkers!: Nice seeing this game, even nicer to see it played well!

    One Wrong Price: Is it weird that I predicted that this game would be played just by the last game played and the location of Drew and Sue? xD Either way, I honestly thought that the grill was the wrong price, but in my defense, I wasn't really paying attention. xD

    Temptation: I actually quite like the music cue played for the car on this playing. Kind of wish I could hear the full cue or know it's name.

    About the playing, Shanetta still did better than I would have. I had $20,495. Would've been a good guess a year or two ago I guess...

    Plinko: Again, I thought that this was going to be played by the placement of Drew and Maxine and the placement of the other games... I can't be the only one who finds that quite creepy.

    Too bad that Maxine couldn't get more money out of Plinko. Then again, considering how stingy the board has been, she shouldn't feel too bad.

    Lucky $even: My god, how many games have been played for the Chevy Spark this season? I remember when I first saw the usual price and thinking that it should have been on Let's Make a Deal. xD

    I honestly thought that Laura was toast with the 9. Too bad it couldn't pay off.

    Showcases: I honestly am somewhat surprised at the price of SC2. I probably shouldn't be, since most of it is likely the African Safari, but considering how cheap showcases get at this point in the season...

    I found this to be a good show. Fun contestants and some surprises in the games (at least to me).
