If ever there was a time to justify lowball bidding, it's when the LG-po brand of TV shows up.

Grand Game:
  • Walgreens Ology "tree free" copy paper (⅘ ream)
  • Del Monte pear halves
  • 1-2-3 canola oil
  • Hungry Jack Diner Style instant hashbrowns
  • Wet Ones antibacterial hand wipes
  • Kraft Shake 'n Bake chicken coating mix

Would've lost it on that one myself; I'm used to paying about $3.89 for Shake 'n Bake. And thus is Grandy's five-game win streak snapped.

The "handmade in Paris" bit must've been what really drove that price up into the stratosphere.

...Oh. Did I say "drove?" What a segué!

Coming or Going:
Sea-Doo Spark watercraft w/trailer & life vest (RR)

We almost have a prop calamity when Drew demonstrates the game; his "going" motion nearly tips the entire prop over!

As tempted as I am to say $9,067 here, $7,609 makes more sense since this is a Sea-Doo and not, say, a Yamaha or Kawasaki.

On second thought, maybe you could go wrong at that.

After a promising start to the day with a coin-flip Push Over won, things have been all downhill since. And now to make matters worse, Latanya's on the verge of being this week's first banishee to Leftover Island. Can we somehow turn this around? Let's see...

She had the right idea, but not having the last-bid advantage was her undoing here. So Latanya ends up packing her bags while it's Manyvone who gets to play for this half's car in Why Don't They Ever Believe Us?:
2014 Dodge Avenger SE (2.4L, 4AT; AL)

(RR with the tags)
$19,849
$17,650
$20,400
$18,770
$21,590

Since it's stock, I can't really make up my mind between $19,849 or $18,770. Both look reasonable for a Jack Webb-style Avenger. I'd need at least two, probably even three picks to pull this off.

How unfortunate that we'll probably be lucky to get more than one out of this, and we all know why.

It has gotten to the point where I actually have the four "FALSE" guesses pre-recorded into my template for this game. Honestly, why does EVERYONE do that? It's maddening, and it's destroying my love for this game that was once one of my very favorites. Is it that difficult to believe the show could be showing you a correct price?

At least they were kind today and had two Trues in the mix; usually it's three of the four. That's why I always say, if you're going to braindead your way through 5PT, at least say everything is True; four out of five times, you'll get more chances if you do it that way than if you say it's all False.

Regardless...
