Picked the one that was most obviously correct of the bunch, at least to people like me who watch this all the time.

...And Houston, we have a MAJOR problem here. Look very closely at that price display for the accessories, seen quite clearly during George's prize descriptions:

It's not quite as visible because of the way I had to take the picture, but it was plain as day on the broadcast. In case you can't tell what you're looking at even with my highlight, take a second look after Rachel popped open the "ACCESSORIES" flap:

Yes, the red of the ARP art card was plainly sticking out of the prop, thus throwing up a red flag (in a very literal sense!) as to which price was wrong. Obviously they got away with it this time because Judy still lost, so it's possible she just didn't see it in the studio... and to be fair, the red does rather blend into the purple of the prop... but that's exactly the sort of slipup that could lead to some pretty serious S&P issues, up to and including a technical win being awarded. Judy might not have noticed, but the next person might, which is why they've got to be careful.

Moving right along, then...

Bonus Game:
Lloyd Flanders Fairhope outdoor seating group & Beachcomber Leep round hot tub ($12,519; AL)

(Very) Minor Set Change: The SP cards on the gameboard, usually metallic gold since the redesign, have reverted to yellow. The text, however, is still red-bordered as it has been. This could be a fluke just for this one playing, however, as Bonus Game has been seen on shows taped following this VTR date and the standard gold-backed cards are present in those episodes.

It's In the Bag:

  • Nabisco Lorna Doone shortbread cookies (10 oz)
  • Allegra allergy relief (45 tablets)

  • V8 Splash juice (64 fl oz)

$1.19
$25.09
$2.69
$5.49
$3.69

After the obvious two, my thoughts are: Frosting for $2.69, bandages for $5.49, and juice for $3.69. Let's see...

Whoa. Expensive for mass-produced, non-gourmet cookies.

Leftover Island awaits Tina, unless...

Side note: I like David B.'s shirt—the Tenth Doctor and his three main companions (Martha, Rose, and Donna), drawn in the style of The Powerpuff Girls. (TenDoc himself is drawn as Prof. Utonium.)
