Even though it's seven nights, I'm still going with the lesser of the two prices here -- $8,429. And so's she.

(AL with the tags)
$21,595
$19,660
$20,479
$17,245
$18,350

Prediction: $17,245.

New season, clean slate, I promise not to lose my mind if I see a mindless devotion to falsehoods on the small stuff...

Can't complain there. At least Haley had enough presence of mind to sprinkle in some Trues, more than I can say about the vast majority of recent 5PT players.

Pick #1
$19,660
NO
Pick #2
$21,595
WIN!

And I'm certainly not going to complain about that, even though I was dead wrong! ^^;

So you want to see the Ohio River that badly, eh, Corey?

Double Cross:
  1. LG large-capacity washer & dryer (Plessers.com; RR)
  2. Samsung 60" LED 3D Smart HDTV w/4 pairs of glasses & 1 HDMI cable (AL)
The only price that makes sense for the washer and dryer is $2,748—which means, as weird as it looks, the TV price is $3,426 if Holmesian logic is applied.

See what I mean? ^^;

Balance Game:
Sea-Doo Spark 3-up HO Ace personal watercraft w/trailer (RR)

$8,284, I'm feeling.

Will we have to wait as long as we did last year for our first winner here?

And with that, we've locked in our first day over .500 this season, seven shows in. Things are looking pretty good right about now...

Sudden Change under-eye firming serum

Oh dear. This is a conundrum to be sure. $4,000 is pretty good money, and when weighed against the chance of getting three cars on your only other roll, it looks even more attractive. While you may have a 50% chance of winning, within that other 50% are some downright scary 23-1 odds in favor of rolling something worth far less.

Yolanda opts for the better part of valor, and honestly I can't say as I blame her. Still, I would've liked to see how it would've played out had she gone on.

Corey's had fun all day with his bids, but he now stands on the brink of banishment. It's as well he has the advantage, but will he make use of it?

And Yukari makes her first apperance of the season. Le sigh...

Shopping Spree:
  1. Samsung 27" touchscreen computer (8GB RAM, 1TB HD, HP AIO; AL)
  2. Kate Spade designer leather accessories (AL)
  3. Premium-grade foosball table (RR)
  4. Kymco Campagno 110i motorscooter (RR)

Instinct is to avoid the accessories, but the foosball table is also of dubious quality for selection purposes.

Sadly, we cannot call this a true perfect show, because of Yolanda's (understandable) bailout in Let 'em Roll... but by no means do I mean to diminish how good this day has been!

Uh-oh, we've got a Caption of Doom:

"A discrepancy was found in the price of a prize and was rectified post taping. This did not affect the outcome of any game."

Phew. Since the second sentence implies that all is well, I won't have to correct anything in my spreadsheet most likely. Results and numbers will both stand as correct.

And a good thing, too, because we don't see Leader Boards quite like this every day:

Quick personal note: Tomorrow I may be away from my computer for most of the afternoon, so expect a late recap then too. It can't be helped, unfortunately.

  1. Actually, Cory's being diverted to the Monty Python/Earthworm Jim Cow-Dropping Target Range!!!
