Gucci, you say? The grill is probably the cheaper of the two. I'd add.

Well, that was a rather interesting little Showdown. Robert's Wheelie even came with a little somersault too! YouTube worthy for sure.

Would've been faster, but Alecia made the potentially-fatal mistake of running back to replace a paddle that'd fallen off the board, despite Drew's assurances that "It's okay, we know, we know." That ate up about six seconds more than that turn should've taken.

Pretty cheap for a Bahamas trip, actually. This could've gone much better to say the least.

This... hasn't been the best premiere week ever, let's just say. But maybe we can turn things around a bit now?

...And that's the kind of good fortune I was talking about. Pity it leaves the most random digit of all open though.

It's a straight-up 25% chance of winning a car at the Last Chance Saloon crap table...

WIN!

The first car we've given away in Season 43 (outside of yesterday's Showcase winner) is on this decidedly unfriendly game in a tough position. If that's not worth a dancing Hakurei miko, I don't know what is.

That's a load off our backs!

Last chance for either Rosalyn or Beau to avoid adding to the suddenly-exploding population count on Leftover Island. Beau has the advantage, though...
