Punch-a-Bunch:
Naturally, I don't think we have a prayer of going two-for-two with $25K winners in this... but hey, you never know. That's why they play the game, after all! Let's do it...

Yep, back to normal with this one. Well, we couldn't realistically expect two outright winners in a row, could we?

Flip Flop:

Hmm... Sea-Doo isn't the most expensive jet-ski the show offers, but I do think $7,5xx is more likely than $5,748.

Mariah Flips...

That's Actually Not Been Too Bad This Season!:
2014 Scion fR-S (2.0L, 6MT, RWD, Bluetooth; MA)

...or at least, not as bad as its reputation would have you believe, with a 5-23 record going into this playing (including back-to-back wins at one point). Not great, of course, but probably better than you'd think given that this game has that "impossible to win" reputation.

Well, you gotta give it to Tavita for guts; I think most stage players would've been spooked around $22,960. I know I was, because that's where I stopped in my own head.

Let's hope...

$25,740
$27,335
$25,455
>_<

And after I said those relatively nice things about this game, too...

Christian Loubouton? Way more than $1,137, Neili. Follow the old advice of the Nike ads...

By the skin of her teeth (just $115 away from the upper limit of her range), but nevertheless a great win!

Drew: "I'm glad you didn't pick another card!" Actually, Drew, picking another card would've been perfectly fine in this case, though of course only the producers knew that much...

Linda and Bill are in line to join an already rather crowded express train to Leftover Island, but one of them can still escape. Bill has the advantage, but he's had it a few times already and couldn't capitalize... could this time be different? We shall see.

...Bullseye? For a $20K trip?!

I better not hear ANYONE suggesting the games are biased against the contestant today. That's all I have to say.
