$20 for the pigs-in-a-blanket thing, $55 for the juicer, $40 for the toaster oven, and $70 for the chocolate fountain... leaving $18,135 as the car price. That works for me.

Somehow, I just knew she'd do that for the car. They always think the largest digit is the one that goes for the car.

ARGH. That one hurt.

Second-guessing yourself in this game can be disastrous. Especially if you let the Peanut Gallery talk you out of something.

Note that I'm left to guess on that ARP. It was rather muffled in the finished episode and even the closed captioning didn't quite catch it. I think I have what Drew actually read off his little card, though.

Pick-a-Pair:
Michael Amini After 8 bedroom group (Comfortaire Q) & Apple iPad Mini (16GB) w/smart cover ($12,936; RR)

Rather expensive prize package in a game that's almost a guaranteed W, but I'm certainly not one to complain about stuff like that...

  • Princella cut yams (What happened to Bruce's?)
  • Zest body bars (3)
  • Orville Redenbacher's Poppycock popcorn snack
  • Gold Medal all-purpose flour
  • Playtex Living gloves
  • French's honey mustard dipping sauce

Try #1:

What was $3.49? The honey mustard on the end.

With such a motley assortment on the table, this may have been only to be expected. Heck of a way to break in a revised template though.

SAVIOR OF THE SECOND HALF!

I knew Cancún would be the more expensive of the two, but I didn't figure on $4,940 being the more expensive price. ^^;;

Two Showdowns, two Spin-Offs, two Bonus Spins... and two Bonus Spin fails. Can't fault 'em for effort, though. (Or maybe you can. In which case, I don't even know what to say to ya. You're also probably the kind of person who critiques grade-schoolers' essays by the strict MLA Handbook.)

Showcases: Frederick (true) top winner, Maryann runner-up.

  • Inspire home gym (RR)
  • Pro-Form treadmill (RR)
