TPiRecap: 3 April 2014


Of note, today's episode was supposed to air several weeks ago.

Knowing how most of these "postponed" episodes have tended to end... yeah, I'm not exactly looking forward to this one. But we gotta go through the motions at least, hoping for the best while at least half-expecting the worst.

I say zero. $5,0xx seems low for a single stage prize these days. Actually, so does $5,4xx, but at least that's marginally more believable.

A little bit surprised they didn't use Check Game for this. That price would have been perfect for it.

Not that it probably matters with the odds 15-1 against, but Rodger picks box #14...

WIN?!!?!!!?!!?

...I'm at a loss for words. You have to go all the way back to 16 April 2009 to find the last time someone found the right box with no eliminations.

That is amazing. Just when I was ready to throw in the towel, too! Well done, Rodger!

  2. Escalade Sports foosball table (AL, RR)
  3. Maytag Maxima washer & dryer (RR)

The foosball table is obviously the least expensive, but the accessories and washer/dryer is a total coin flip because of the random-number generator that accessories are.

Surely Rashada's hoping he didn't, because this is her last chance to escape banishment...

...which she does!

Rashada, it seems, is part of a road-show stage version of The Lion King in which she plays Shenzi (the role originated by Whoopi Goldberg in the movie). "Let's give the hyena some laughs, George," quips Drew by way of leading into Pass the Buck:

Tell me when chip dip became so expensive? I've been making my own for years anyway. (1 packet of ranch dressing powder + 1 16oz tub of sour cream = snacking bliss at not even half that price. Add a tablespoon or two of sriracha, which I always have on hand anyway, and look out!)

Is this gonna be the new standard? Every time they reschedule a show it's because it ends in a DOB? >_>

If that's the case, then just FYI... we've got another one on Monday (that was originally suppsed to air today, as it happens). Bad tidings ahead.
