LOSS

I knew the washer/dryer was to be avoided as soon as the Plessers.com tag went up on it. Protip: When the tagline for a reseller is "It's lesser at Plessers," then it's probably wise to avoid it in a game where the object is to pick the most expensive prize.

I actually would've gone with accessories + refrigerator and been way off base. Well done!

And c'mon, Mike, stop trolling me and my fellow recappers/stat-keepers already! On the commercial toss, we see Drew standing next to the Take Two board with all four prices obviously exposed... but we don't actually see the prices themselves, just a quick glimpse that the fridge ended in a -9! If you're gonna reveal prices, then reveal them; don't make us guess! That really rubs me the wrong way

WSDs are always painful. Single-digit WSDs are the worst of all. Drew is seen consoling Mitchell (who's in surprisingly good spritis about the whole thing) during the end credits.
