Grand Game:
  • Vlasic bread & butter chips
  • Bisquick Shake 'n Pour pancake batter
  • Fritos hot bean dip
  • Bounty paper towels (2 rolls)
  • Simply Olay body wash
  • Sunshine Cheez-It snack crackers (travel cup)

Target
$4.00
$1

Hmm. Tough call, but I'd say the pickles and the paper towels are probably more than four bucks, albeit slightly in the case of the latter. An argument could also be made for the body wash being an "avoid" too.

More expensive paper towels than I figured they'd be. (What can I say, I haven't bought paper towels in ages -- reusable terry-cloth rags FTW.) And pickles are always more expensive than you think.

Another tough setup; all three potentialities ($6,560, $6,960, and $6,950) look good to me. I might be tempted to go with $6,560, simply because the other too prices are too close together -- a difference of only ten bucks -- and that may be a hidden clue of some sort.

I was afraid of that the moment I saw cookware in the mix. As a general rule, few if any contestants ever think cookware offered on this show is any different than the cheap stuff sold in Walmarts and Targets nationwide, and never stop to consider they might be actual Professional Kitchen Tools. Maybe that's why they get used so often... not for me to say.

What is for me to say, however, is that we're winless through three... not looking too good.

Switch?:
  1. Samsung 65" 3D LED Smart HDTV w/HDMI cable & 4 pairs of glasses (GOS)
  2. Summit 6-burner gas barbecue (RR)

HDTVs always end in -00... unless they include HDMI cables. In which case, a multiple of 25 is your safest bet. Ergo, with a posted price of $2,149 on the TV, I say those tags need to be switched.

Once again, sometimes I really hate being right...

I smell something potentially foul approaching the studio. Hopefully it's a false alarm, but we'll find out after this segment...

I guess it was just a passing ill wind after all. Give credit to an almost ridiculously easy setup, and to Kristen for not succumbing to the temptation on $9,521 (which I honestly thought she was going to at one point).

Alas, poor Carol... still stuck in the Row after all this time. She's headed for Leftover Island for sure... or is she? She does have the advantage in this last one-bid. Let's see if she can make the most of it...

Somehow, a 2-for-6 day is easier to take when at least one of the two wins is a car game.

Carol does a split, and even something of a Worm, to celebrate! Drew cracks up.

Showcases: Carol (true) top winner, Anjali runner-up.

1. Picture-Perfect
  • Nikon 1 V2 HD camera w/2 lenses (RR)
  • Trip to Cape Cod, MA (5n, Cape Codder Resort & Spa; RR)
    • 1 massage each
  • 2014 Ford Focus SE (2.0L, FWD; GOS)
Carol bids $29,000.
(My bid: $21,810)

Waaay too much, I fear. That car's only about $16-17K or so and I can't see LA-to-Cape-Cod being any more than six grand. Seven, at absolute most.

2. Catch 5
(Our Native Clevelander Will Surely Get That...)
  • Kate Spade designer tote bags (RR)
  • Kawasaki Ninja 300SE motorcycle (GOS)
  • 2014 Toyota Yaris LE (1.5L, 4AT; RR)
Anjali bids $22,000.
