Still somewhat enviable... I'd stay off of 5 or 6, though, since those are most likely to be the first digit of the high chair and/or Piggy Bank at this stage.

Not a fatal mistake, but it does make life a bit hard... you should go low for your next pick.

That helps a lot. Let's break it down now...

First, the 6... throw it out entirely. A piggy bank under four dollars just wouldn't happen in 2015 (even Mike Richards has said as much in an interview). Also, past history suggests the zero is most likely going to slot into the three-digit prize. That leaves 1, 2, or 3 for the tens digit of the car... in theory a 1:3 chance, but it's entirely likely that you could call all three of those digits and still not complete either non-car price.

Just as long as they don't do something silly, like, oh, I don't know...

...THAT.
(See, it's theme-appropriate... she's holding a baby! Ahem.)

Obviously they still haven't totally blown it, but they just increased the difficulty tenfold... and the sad thing is, neither they nor (I suspect) anyone in the Peanut Gallery is even aware of just how easy this could have been.

Let's hope...

$721 would be a believable price range for that camera... if it were a Sony. For a Canon, that's way too cheap. Go with that, if anything.

But that doesn't even tell the whole story. Natalie actually said 7 for her guess, but Vincent went with his own gut, which was what you see. >_<

The day started out great, but kinda hit a brick wall around about Punch-a-Bunch and never recovered. 8^/

Let's see... so far, we've had first dates, we've had anniversaries, we've had military couples, and we've had experting parents... guess that just leaves one kind of couple left unaccounted for, huh? Yep, tomorrow we get the engaged couples... but with an extra added twist:

They won't be "engaged" anymore by the time the show's over.

What do I mean by that? Tune in tomorrow...
