Jamie grew up with Bob, now she's here for Drew—and Push Over:
Trip to Cozumel, México (6n, Presidente InterContinental Resort & Spa, daily breakfast, guided snorkeling adventure; RR)

Kinda wanted this one to be Coggy (a game Bob actually invented), but this works too...

After a strong start, falling into the Five Trap was the killer. Again. Are we ever going to se another season where Lucky $even wins can be counted on more than one hand?

While we teach Natosha the difference between Porsamo Bleu and Rolex, Nicole will play It's In the Bag:
  • Pearls Olives to Go! (4 1.2oz cups)
  • Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce (15 fl oz)
  • Yoplait Light yogurt
  • Aveeno Positively Smooth shave gel
  • Viactiv Calcium vitamin chews (72)
  • Hungry Jack mashed potatoes (15.3 oz)

If I were playing... After the two obvious bags, the mashed potatoes would go in $2.42, Worcestershire sauce in $5.89, and the shaving cream in $3.49.

Ouch!

Most Expen$ive, which has really been on a roll as of late:
  1. BCBG Max Azira designer handbags & shoes (MA)
  2. Album 9' & 6' sufrboards w/bags (RR)
  3. LG 55" 3D LED Smart 4KTV w/2 pairs of glasses (GG)

I'm going for the TV here. BCBG is one of the cheapo designer labels (in most cases) and there's no way the surfboards could be more than a 3D HDTV anyway, let alone a 4KTV.

Pathfinder:
2015 Mitsubishi Mirage ES hatchback (1.2L, CVT, FWD, LED illum pkg, cargo net/organizer, paint prot; RR)

Pathfinder for a comparative cheapie like a Mitsubishi strikes me as a monumentally bad idea, but let's see what happens...

I like $16,730 or $16,930. $16,950 also resonates. See where I'm going with this?

Well, there goes the easy one...

Everyone in her section, including her friends/family, are saying 7 or 9... so of course she ignores all of them...

I know the Peanut Gallery's guesses are only rarely as good as your own anymore, but I just found it surprising she went totally against the advice of her buddies on this one... that doesn't happen too often.

...which could be a metaphor for our entire day.

Dane will have the much-needed advantage again this time, which he might need to avoid banishment...

While Dane packs his bags, Linda will play Balance Game:
Yamaha V1 WaveRunner w/trailer (RR)

For a WaveRunner... $8,784 sounds the best of the three options. To me.

Feels like it's been forever since this game was last won, even though I know it's been won on two other occassions this season. And a 2-for-6 day feels a lot nicer than a 1-for 6 one any time...

  1. Not as painful as it would have been for the player if it happened...

  2. And it did happen. In 1992 or 1993, a contestant bid $12,000 on a showcase and the ARP was $11,999.
