TPiRecap: 8 January 2014

Okay... we're looking to rebound after yesterday's downer. Let's see what we can do about that, as I try to get re-used to working on Wednesdays after a couple of weeks where that's been my day off...

I literally have no idea now where the back of the car is. If I had the gun to my head and had to guess, I'd say 63 or 94.

WIn $220
($19,456; Stacked Deck [1])

I briefly considered 56, but discarded it. Typical.

[1] I don't think anyone reading this took it this way, but just in case: "Stacked Deck" is not a reference to a certain unnecessarily-evil Pricing Game, nor does it accuse the producers of any alleged wrongdoing. It simply means the front and back of the car are arranged one on top of the other, i.e. "stacked." It's my personal nickname for what Bob sometimes called "The Ol' Top-and-Bottom Trick."

The shoes were a wildcard, as always, but I figured she was safe as long as she stayed away from the TVs. As indeed was the case.

Another evil setup; if Shalimar hadn't blown it with the $6.69 bag, I definitely feel she would've gotten stung at $2.49 (I honestly didn't see how it could have been anything but the pudding). Not a pretty sight, so let's just move along.

Pick-a-Number:
The latent punster in me is very pleased. Ean's T-shirt claims "All Proceeds Go to Pokémon Cards," which prompts George to say to Ean, "Take a 'Pikachu'" Yamaha VX Sport WaveRunner w/trailer (CT, who is unfortunately not wearing something along the lines of what she does in the pages of Sports Illustrated's most celebrated issue)

MIKE used Evil Setup!
It's super effective!
...Okay, I'll stop.  ^^;

Ean managed to escape in our last segment, which leaves Skye in the unenviable position. Alas, poor Skye, with his wonky bidding, is in danger of going up the river... the Ohio River, that is. Which you could actually walk across, it's so cold in this part of the country right now. Regardless, this is Skye's last chance to avoid the trip to self-respecting F4 wants to take. The good news is, he's got the advantage for the first time today, so maybe that'll help...

Meh. Well, at least we didn't get skunked twice in a row. That's an improvement.

  1. After winning Most Expensive, the girl tripped on the logo carpet, fell on George, & he fell, making the props holding the TVs move back? From today's episode...
