Only because $8,6xx seems a bit too high for LA-to-HI these days, I'm going with $6,851 through sheer process of elimination.

SUICIDE

A green $ on stage means it's the House on Haunted Hill (season-appropriate nicknames FTW) behind Door #2:

  • Capzasin pain relief applicator
  • Kraft Shake 'n Bake coating mix
  • Downy Infusions fabric softener sheets (90)
  • Gerber 2nd Foods pears (2 pack)
  • Act Total Care mouthwash
  • Near East couscous mix

This is tough, except for the most expensive thing on the table, but here's My Arrangement:
Mailbox: Couscous
1st Floor: Baby food + Coating mix
2nd Floor: Fabric softener + mouthwash
Attic: Pain reliever

(GOS pitches, RR catches)

Baby food
$1.29

$1,000

Go on...
Coating mix
$4.49
Softener
$6.99

Win $5,000
Mouthwash
$4.99
Couscous
$2.99
$10,000
$7.98

Pain reliever
$8.49

$100,000
$8.49

Solution:
Mailbox: Mouthwash = $4.99
1st Floor: Couscous ($2.99) + Coating mix ($4.49) = $7.48
2nd Floor: Baby food ($1.29) + Fabric softener ($6.99) = $8.28
Attic: Pain reliever = $8.49

Solution #2: Swap the mouthwash with the coating mix in the above solution.

How I Did:
Mailbox: Couscous = $2.99
1st Floor: Baby food ($1.29) + Coating mix ($4.49) = $5.78
2nd Floor: Fabric softener ($6.99) + Mouthwash ($4.99) = $11.98
Attic: Pain reliever = $8.49

As I said, really tough setup today, even by this game's standards. Frankly, I think Kerry was lucky to get five grand out of it.

Balance Game:
Pair of Can-Am DS250 ATVs (RR)

This is an interesting situation. If the previous game had featured a total haul of more than $6,205, I might be tempted into believing the correct move here was $6,098. But it's unlike Price to have two games back-to-back with nearly identical hauls on the lower end of the spectrum like this. I'll therefore adjust my prediction to $8,098 ($6K + $2K).

Let's see...
That's the epitome of "paying more attention to these things than most normal people," though.

It's Taylor's last chance, and she's got the advantage...
