(Air freshener: $5.49; Candy: $6.59)

I was going back and forth on the stuffing or the air freshener, until I got a better look at the latter and saw the relative size of the thing. Yeah, air fresheners that large definitely run to the pricey side of the aisle.

Well, I'm wrong again -- this honestly isn't news by now -- but that worked out a bit better than I'd hoped in that she got one of the tough numbers out of the way early.

It seems we've been here before just recently... a 50-50 shot at keeping a streak alive. Will it pan out today like it did on Friday?

IT SURE WILL!

A Minor Set Change can now be revealed: The old sickly-green ball is a thing of the past, replaced by a branded ping-pong ball. (They may have had this the last time they played Shelly, but I honestly don't recall.)

Keeping the perfect record intact, but it was a bit touch-and-go there for a minute.

Last chance for Teresa to get on stage before the Leftover Island shuttle departs from LAX... good thing she's got the advantage.

And well she makes use of the advantage! Now she gets to wrap up the day on a strong note by winning a car in...

Aw, Man!:

I dunno... that kinda feels good to me, but I also probably would've gone just one more step. Let's see...

$21,480

NOPE

It was, rather, one step too far. The price of the Beetle's come down a bit since last I checked (it was around $22-23K last time I saw one around here, anyway).
