Yeah, I was gravitating towards either 80 or 28 for that last digit, but going for the season number is usually a Bad Idea℠ of the first order in this game...

Last time out, on an episode I was obliged to miss out on due to a cable issue, Balance Game was actually won for the first time all year. Can we make it two in a row as we approach the dying embers of Season 42?

Frustrating. >_<

Interesting pattern. Maybe going "random" like this will help?

Punch #1
$25,000
WIN!!!!!!!!!!!
(#2: Who; #3: Really; #4: Cares)


FINALLY!!! Our long national nightmare is over! Even Drew points out it's the first $25,000 winner Punchy has had since the top prize was inflated (in daytime, anyway; there was one during a Bob-era MDS).

And just to prove I'm not hallucinating or making this up...
Now, to all of you naysayers, you know who you are, who think the slip doesn't even exist... what do you have to say now?

Well, where can we go from that, I wonder? How about a car win? Let's try to get one...

...Then again, we're working on two wins in a row here... it can be done, obviously. OTOH, this game also owns the longest losing streak of Season 42, with fourteen consecutive losses.

Fingers crossed and hoping for the best...

Drew reports that after the cameras went off, he did in fact check the other three holes Linda punched -- and punch #2 was actually one of the $10,000 slips! The odds of that happening are 1,249-1 against! Indeed, luck was on her side today -- just not at the Wheel, alas. Still, Linda will at least go down in Price history as the first (daytime) contestant to take Punch-a-Bunch for twenty-five Gs, which certainly is nothing to sneeze at.

  1. Happy Rey Mysterio, Jr. Day! (6/19, you know.)
    Today is also the 36th anniversary of Garfield.

    My jaw DROPPED when I saw Linda win $25,000 on Punch a Bunch today. It was like seeing those million dollar winners on Season 36's MDS's all over again!

    And that Dodge Challenger was a nice surprise.

    (No, Drew actually doesn't reveal the price in between $24,995 and $27,995.)
    Yes he did, going into commercial. It was $26,451!

    Remember a TV show called Less than Perfect? Emily, to me, looked like what Sara Rue (the star) looked like on that show.
