He was doing great, but on that last one he looked out to his buddies for help! The cardinal sin in this game.

He still got eight shots at it, which is totally fine. But that last hesitation cost him dearly, I think. Also the insistence that a hot tub is somehow less than five grand.

The season number is rarely, if ever, a good number to draw—but at least Drew sneaks in a shout-out to the old WUAB (Cleveland's channel 43). Ah, the days of Superhost, Barnaby, and the Prize Movie...

...Ahem. ^^;;; Last chance for that car, and I'm still not unconvinced it's 59.

Obviously, it was what they wanted me to think. Now it's a dilemma.
