Just to visually show you after each elimination which boxes are left in play. Some of you have been asking for it, so I thought I'd give it a try. You will let me know if I should keep it or not, right?

(Yes, even though I'm outta here after this season, I'm still looking for ways to improve this...)

Sharon chooses box #9, going with her kids in the audience rather than her gut (which said 6)...

If it's any comfort, Sharon... your gut would've been wrong too. It was box #12 today.

Flip Flop:

I always hate these three-way coin flips... that trip could believably be any of the three options here ($6,758, $7,658, or $7,685). Heck, if I didn't know it couldn't possibly be, I'd argue that the price is actually correct as it stands!
