TPiRecap: 2 July 2014

Well, back at it, at least for one day. Off again tomorrow, then we're back on Friday to celebrate our nation's birthday, and after that you don't have to put up with me until August 15th barring any breaking news regarding Season 43.

Let's do this...

Of the three, $6,948 strikes me as the best choice here, as it's the only one that ends in a recognizable pattern for two small vehicles like that.

  • Spic and Span multi-surface cleaner

...Spic and Span!? I knew we entered a time warp today, but I didn't think we'd go all the way back to '83!

Stay off the guacamole and cleaner, says my gut.

Three games, three losses, and only $4,111 given away (out of a potential $43,714). We can and must do better than this, people; I don't need to be busting out the fumigation stuff today.

Balance Game:
Michael Amini & Jane Seymour 7pc dining room set w/crystal vase (MO)

...We need a winner and you break out a game that's only been won once all season? (In fairness, this was supposed to air back at the start of January, and at that time we didn't know the exact depths to which the scale would sink before finally posting that first win.)



I'm thinking $7,499 here, so I'd go with $5K and $2K.
Thanks to this episode getting pre-empted six months ago, it looks like all those fears of Balance Game going winless in Season 42 were unfounded after all! Nice, and I can put away the tomato juice too! (For now, he added ominously, reminded there are still two shows to go...)

More importantly than all of that, the comeback begins...

Sadly, after all this time in limbo, Kerri is off to Leftover Island after all (and her boyfriend, who have her that bid, is off to the doghouse), while Shelly gets a shot at winning 2 for the Price of 1:

How about that? Three games we thought were destined for 0-fers until late in the season, when in truth they were never in any danger of it at all! Amazing what happens when pre-emptions occur...

J-League Showcases: Jessica top winner, James runner-up.

1. In Perfect Harmony
  • Apple iPod Touch 5th gen (32GB) w/on-ear headphones (MO)
  • $2,500 Rodeo Drive shopping spree (6hr; MO)
  • 2014 Scion tC (2.5L, 6AT; RR)
Jessica passes; James bids $24,350.
(My bid: $21,898)

2. Island Hopping?
  • Trip to Manhattan, NY (6n, Sheraton New York Times Square; MO)
    • Guided tour of Coney Island
      • Which is actually in Brooklyn, not Manhattan, but who's counting?
  • Summerset outdoor kitchen island w/barbecue (RR)
  • Trip to Palm Island, the Grenadines (6n; RR)
Jessica bids $22,000.
(My bid: $28,581)

And with that bid, my private fear this would have the same ending as those pre-emptions from last year is assuaged. I'm still a bit worried about James's bid, though.

The theme of this episode is clearly "You Were Worried For Nothing!" The only bummer is that James was $74 too high for a DSW, which is one of the closest calls in a while. But nobody's complaining!
