TPiRecap: 30 October 2013

To my knowledge, nothing's leaked out yet about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Until then...

Drew: "Oh, man, I wish I belonged to the gym Jenna belongs to..."

Crystal's shirt proclaims that she quit her (summer) job to be here today, so she deserves a big prize.

How about The Biggest Game We've Got?:

(MO as QB, RR as WR)
  • Francesco Rinaldi pasta sauce
  • Fanta grapefruit soda (12 cans)
  • Alber's Quick Grits
  • Oil of Olay Moisture Ribbons body wash
  • M&Ms candy (regular size)
  • Sunshine Cheez-It snack crackers


Did I hear someone call my name? Who wants to make a contra --

Thanks, Homura.

Don't mention it.



Ahem... where were we? Ah yes.

My Arrangement:
Mailbox: Crackers
1st Floor: Pasta sauce + candy
2nd Floor: Soda + grits
Attic: Body wash


Candy

Body wash

And I obviously wouldn't have made it past the mailbox on my arrangement. Those silly, deceptively expensive Cheez-Its...

Solution:
Mailbox: Pasta sauce = $2.29
1st Floor: Soda ($4.99) + Candy (89¢) = $5.88
2nd Floor: Crackers ($4.39) + Grits ($1.79) = $6.18
Attic: Body wash = $6.49

...Nope, not putting out the alarm this time. There've been too many false alarms recently.

With that said, I'm going with it anyway for my own prediciton. $19,407.

Aaaand, so much for that prediction. XD But with a full complement of four chances to find those pesky last two digits, she's got a 66.7% chance of actually winning this thing (remember, you can now safely rule out 19 and 20)... can't get much better than that!

Well, that just makes it official: El Cheapo is now a feint used by the staff to try and throw LFaTs off the trail. 63 would've been the last number I suspected of hiding the rear of the car. Extremely well-done, Jenna!

The hundreds paddle falls off the board, so she has to lose a second to retrieve it... but then she puts it right back where it was, despite Drew's exhortations that it counted anyway...

This is a tough setup, since the thousands digit could realistically be any of the three. Usually you can eliminate one of them through common sense, but not this time. This may not end well.

On the bright side, it took us five and a half weeks before we saw our first one of these. After the debacle that was our summer make-goods, that's still a positive thing. And lest we forget -- both Jenna and Odes won cars already, in games that were tough setups at that, so we can't feel too badly for them.

In fact, Rachel and Melissa escort them to their cars for a credits celebration anyway. Talk about consolation prizes!
