I thought for sure she would go with 61, keeping her pattern of staying with the higher numbers -- but not this time, alas.

Magdalena takes her place at the Cranberry Podium -- and everybody else is still just chillin' in the reserve chairs! Drew calls them back to their proper positions in time for our next IUFB, which is...

  1. Panasonic 65" plasma HDTV (LSV)
  2. NordicTrack elliptical trainer (LSV)
  3. 8pc leather handbag collection (RR)
  4. MyBathUSA.com(?) steam shower (RR)

This one could not get any easier, IMO. The TV is clearly the one to avoid here.
(Elliptical trainer: $799; Designer bags: $2,585)

It couldn't get any easier... but it's only "easy" if you know that TVs almost always end in -00 these days. Without that bit of info, I could see where someone might think the NordicTrack was about that much.

Right now I've gotta feel like Peyton Manning does today.

Does she want her remaining two picks? Would you? I didn't think so.

Okay, that feels a lot better after that opening segment...
