Insignificant trivia note: This will be the first aired show that was taped in 2015. It will also be the final show to debut in the 6xxxK series; on Monday the counter officially ticks over to the seven-thousands. It likely means less than nothing, I just thought it was interesting. ^^;

And so to business.

Coming or Going:
Flexsteel 7pc living room group w/floor lamp & Dimplex electric fireplace (RR)

The addition of the fireplace makes this perhaps trickier than it would otherwise be. I'd say $7,145 though.

Punch #1
$100
...BEANS

Well, think of it this way. There are only five of those on the board, and she found one of them. Applying the logic of statistics, that's actually harder than it is to find $5,000 or more (seven holes out of 50).

...Yeah, I got nothin', folks. I gotta try, though, right?

One Wrong Price:
  1. KitchenAid dishwasher (Plessers.com; RR)
  2. Canon EOS Rebel DSLR camea w/70-300mm lens & canvas camera bag (RetailMeNot.com)
  3. Kymco MXU-150 ATV (JO)

I'm thinking the camera looks slightly overpriced, but I've been wrong before today...

NOT THIS TIME THOUGH

The dishwasher actually looked the most correct of the three. We're not doing so well today.

I do hope that's not something furry and stripey I see on the security monitors...

Not really a set change, but we've got a new split-screening effect for the GP selections effective this playing: The contestant appears in a box in the middle of the screen, flanked by the two products on either side and with the price card (or a CG equivalent thereof) at the bottom. It actually looks kinda snazzy. Of course, that won't help her win this evil, evil game...

INEVITABLE

If you'll pardon me, I need to take out my frustrations on a Stack the Deck voodoo set I have... it's like a voodoo doll, but for an inanimate object.

Not only is Tiara about to banished to Leftover Island—though she does have the advantage now—she may still end up being the lucky one, as the rest of us are staring down the barrel of fumigation. Can we reverse the tide of smelliness that seems to be about to engulf Old Thirty-Three? There's only one way to find out...

Well, at least Tiara escaped banishment, but now it's up to her to save us from the foul odor that awaits us if she blows it with Squeeze Play:
