Right back to the player-unfriendly fifth digit, I see. I was afraid it was way too early for that 8; as it turns out, it was one digit premature. Ah well, what can you do, huh?

Alyssa doesn't even bother with those crazy things called "aisles"; she just climbs on over to Contestant's Row from her fifth-row seat... and then she keeps on going up the Southpaw Stairs (™ and © J. Capitano) for a Row Bypass! One Drew-hug later, she returns to the Cranberry Podium so we can continue...

Remember when it looked like we were out of the doldrums as far as Plinko was concerned? ...Yeah, maybe not so much now.

Range Game for a trip that's virtually a third car game all on its own:
African safari (Johannesberg SA, 7n, Ivory Tree Game Lodge Pilanesberg Game Reserve, all meals, game drives; AL)

I actually thought he'd let it go just a fraction too far, but he ended up stopping it about two seconds too early. Ouch.

Then again... but he got halfway up the green, at least. Let's hope it's enough.

Drew's Inspiration Putt:
Despite Drew's admission, I think he's actually made about three or four putts since he took over the show, not just one... and he actually almost sinks this one too, but it's just too strong and it hooks out of the hole.

Timothy's First Putt:
Picture-perfect!
WIN!

Not much more I can add to that, is there? ^^;

Jill was one of the First Four contestants. We are now down to our final IUFB, and she's still there at the Banana Podium. You know what that means -- she's bound for that little scrub island in the Ohio River unless she can bid her way out of the Row this time. Can she pull it off?

Sadly, not. And while we whisk Jill off to the tarmac, Alyssa will be playing One Wrong Price... from the Turntable?!:
  1. Apple 27" iMac computer (upgraded processor, 3TB HD, 16GB RAM, speakers, Epson AIO; AL)
  2. Leather designer accessories (RR)
  3. Kawasaki KLX-110 offroad motorcycle (RR)

...Okay, that was weird. Drew and Alyssa are now in front of Door #2 where they're supposed to be. What was the deal with the Turntable then? Mixed signals? Surely Drew knows where on stage this game is played by now...

She actually would have gone with the computer, but you'll never guess why she changed her mind. That darn ol' Peanut Gallery steered her wrong. Their track record has been awful lately... sooner or later you'd think someone would realize that.
