Can we please take the Plinko board to a stress clinic or a day spa or something, try and get it in a better mood than it's been lately? This is getting ugly.

I can honestly say that this is as high as I have ever seen anyone push that Range Finder. And we see why that's probably not the best idea in the world. 8^/

There was what looked to be an odd edit on Holly's second spin—it wasn't for failing to go all the way around, because it was easily headed back for the 10 where it started, but something weird must've happened because when we cut from a straight-on shot of Holly where the wheel was just about to pass from 30 to 65, to the "arrow" process shot where we've suddenly jumped past 35 with nary a decrease in speed. Anyone know what went on to cause this?

Showcases: Lindsay (true) top winner, Margarite (true) runner-up.

1. Piece of Cake?
  • The KitchenAid Triangle of Terror, with over-range microwave (Plessers.com; GOS)
  • Trip to Boston, MA (6n, The Colonnade Hotel; RR)
    • Boston Cream Pie @ "a famous coffee shop"
  • 2015 Volkswagen Golf hatchback Launch Edition (1.8L, 5MT, FWD, roadside assistance kit, first aid kit; GOS)
Lindsay bids $26,000.
(My bid: $29,823)

2. New Frontiers
  • Trip to Durango, CO (6n; RR)
    • Rental car
    • 2 backpacks
    • $125 dining credit
    • "Various" tours & excursions
  • Suzuki Boulevard S40 motorcycle (GOS)

    • Daily breakfast
    • 2 1-day Universal Studios Japan passes
Margarite bids $18,000.
(My bid: $24,710)

Both suffered from the "say 'hundred' when we mean 'thousand'" syndrome.

  1. Heya there! First time commenter, long time reader. I've always been a big fan of the show, and I love reading these recaps sprinkled with a good sense of humor ever since I stumbled upon the site several months ago. I felt like I should just say how much of a good job you're doing!

    As an aside, I'm curious...I've noticed you've done TPIRecaps of classic episodes or unique events. I stumbled upon something on YouTube called Gameshow Marathon that had a TPIR segment. I'm unsure if this is sacriledge to suggest such within the community, but have you considered doing a TPIRecap of that? Again, keep up the good work and do know that there are people who enjoy your blog and just sorta lurk in the shadows (like me until now).

    PS: Sorry if I clogged up the comment section with this, but I was unsure how else to contact the blogger. As all comments are screened, this figured to be the best way!
