Man, what is up with the bidding today!? If this keeps up I shudder to think what'll happen when we get to the Showcases.

Hi-Lo:

Drew Kong is at it again with the GPs... prepare for incoming fanrage:
  • GoLightly sugar-free butterscotch candy
  • Cascade dishwasher rinse aid
  • Hefty freezer bags (13)
  • Ovaltine classic malt drink mix (12oz)

Balance Game:
West Wight Potter 15' sailboat w/trailer (MA)... and it's not even Showcase time yet!


$9,000 and $4,000, is what I'd say here. $13,495 seems about right for West Wight.

And before this recap can go any further to the dog(gerel)s...
It may seem about right... but it wasn't. >_<


I spy with my myopic eye something black and white headed for Television City... if you've got a comeback in you at all, 6603K, now's the time...

Snow Foolin' was just nosed at the line by Mr. Plow. Ouch. But at least he won something nice -- more than can be said of anyone else so far today.

Emily's on the verge of banishment to Leftover Island, assuming it can even still be found under all the snow and ice we're getting in Ohio right now. Fortunately, she has this one last chance to avoid her fate, and she even has the last-bid advantage. Can this work out for her yet?

I guess not. So as Emily packs for Antarctica North, Dennis provides us with our last chance for a bona fide winner today, with a hopefully good showing in Six-Digit Squeeze Play:

FINALLY!!!

And that saves me from having to split hairs and thus endure the brickbats from fans that insist on strictly pass-fail criteria. (Which is odd, because during the whole time I myself graded strictly pass-fail, all I ever heard was "you're being too hard on them!" I suppose there really are just some people out there who love to complain strictly for its own sake.)

On another note, five out of the six games today were all worth five-digit prizes -- and even the one that didn't break that barrier (Hi-Lo) at least knocked on the door of it, coming just $104 shy of ten grand. Interesting

  1. Drew's item destruction needs to stop. Seriously. It's not funny and I find it insulting to the people who put their product on display to begin with.

    1. I find it funny. Plus, the prizes he destroys are usually the ones with generic descriptions, which means the company did not and is not paying for them, the crew has to buy them from the store themselves.


      At least, that's that I'm assuming. If they were paid for by the company, I'd assume George would read their name off, like he does for Pine Bros© Softish Throat Drops®, created by J. Herman Pine in 1870, Pine Brothers has been soothing sore throats for over 140 years. The proprietary blend of natural ingredients combine with the famed "soft drop" consistency to produce, in their opinion, the most delicious throat drop in the history of the world, and possibly earlier. To know Pine Brothers, is to love them. Pine Brothers is an American original, unique in every way™. :P
