That's how you're supposed to play this game!

Drew shows off the show's latest(?) gadget during our next one-bid, a motorized and automated display tray. So that's whatever happened to Geetoo-Teetoo!

We stay unbeaten with this game, but with $4,799 in total prizes, it's worthy of our...
...stamp of WTFery. Even adding the IUFB into the mix, this entire segment was only worth about fifty-five hundred bucks, enough to make you question what year this is. It's way too early in the season to go into Budget Armageddon Mode...

Marginally better, though it's now down to a particularly nasty coin-flip. Throw the zero out; it's down to 4 or 9 for the last digit. One gets you a car, the other gets you bus fare. And unfortunately it can literally go either way, though if it came down to brass tacks I'd go with the 4 over the 9.

    1. How do you know that? I have a strong feeling that that last number was a 5.

  2. They seriously had a contestant on this episode named Treg? D:

    It's way too early in the season to go into Budget Armageddon Mode...
    Are you sure of that? Next week is Dream Car Week. And the money for that kind of promo's gotta come from somewhere...

  3. With a couple of $15,000 cars offered already, I thought "Budget Mode Souffle" had already appeared on the commissary menu.

  4. I just watched this episode today. (Yes, I'm behind.) The Lucky $even ARP was $22,283. I heard Drew say 3 and then say, "Four low ones and a high one."
