$3400
$2200

Dirty pool, Richards... both prices end in -00 and are thus viable HDTV prices. So it comes down to, which one's more expensive?

My gut says the washer and dryer are more expensive, because Vizio is by design a really cheap TV brand. However, even Vizios can get pricey once you start getting up to super-size screens like that. It's a total coin-flip here.

The luggage is easiest to find in this jumble; it's so $760 it hurts. After that, it comes down to whether you believe the pillow is $53 or $48, both of which are just about equally likely (but if pressed, I'd probably choose the former).

In Season 42, Bonus Game managed to make it all the way to June before finally suffering its first loss. Will it be that lucky again in Season 43? Let's find out...

Based on empirical evidence, I would suggest the Bonus to be most likely attached to either the dessert maker or the hair dryer, since the hair dryer was counter-intuitive and the dessert maker so close. Cross your fingers and hope for the best...

    2. Hallwings: He replied to this, but I killed it. FYI, looks like "tuber dude" is Shaun's newest I-hate-everyone trolly account, and should be treated accordingly.

    3. Devin, ¨tuber dude¨ IS Shaun. I looked at previously approved comments by him, clicked on ¨Shaun Shaffer,¨ where the name is ¨Cameron Sheilds¨. Watch out, guys! tuber dude = Shaun Shaffer = Cameron Sheilds!

  2. For the first Showcase, I bid $28,500, and for the second, I bid $20,000!

    If only Allison and Kenneth had followed suit... >_<
