Everyone who gets on stage today receives an Apple iPad Mini (16GB) from RetailMeNot.com ($330; MA) -- and you can win one yourself!

In the meantime, we've got just the thing to get a head start on college tuition, Grand Game:
  • Breyer's ice cream
  • Zest Ocean Breeze soap (3)
  • Kraft Jet-Puffed marshmallows
  • Vernors ginger soda
  • Hunts Manwich sauce
  • Nissin Top Ramen soup mix

This one's easy for me. The ice cream and the soda should be avoided.

Ugh... I hate these setups, All three options look just about equally correct.

If I had to guess, I'd say the zero.

  1. Indeed, today's Grand Game win was pretty much a cinch.

    That's Too Evil...RICHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARDS! Seriously, $300 from correct option to ARP?

    Nice luck on the wheel today! Almost was three $1.00 winners but Blake/Diane's second spin pegged between the 1.00/15.

    Now, the only thing that can ruin this is a DOB! But that second showcase is surely at least $30K, right?

    ....

    Damn it.
