Andrew may not have gotten the memo about who's been hosting the past 7½ years, but he does get to play Time is Money:
  • Sure deodorant spray (6 oz)
  • Libman Freedom concentrated hardwood floor cleaner
  • Saran plastic wrap (100 ft²)
  • DaVinci bowtie pasta (16 oz)
  • Energizer Max AA batteries (8 ct)

Batteries obviously go in the expensive bin... I think the cleaner does too. Deodorant should go in the mid-range. I'm uncertain about the other two.

Let's do it...

...which turned out to be quite a bit!

See what invoking the name of the guy whom the studio's named after can accomplish? (Yes, of course I'm just joshing...)

I like $7,599, but somehow that seems too pat... maybe $7,519 is better?

INDEED IT IS!

Seems this episode's all about making up for some lost time this week... Check Game aside, it's all been good news so far! But we still have that one more car game to go... not to worry anyone unnecessarily, just pointing out the fact.

And not to worry anyone, but we haven't seen That's Too Much! yet this week, either... though at least Stack the Deck is off the table today (we've already had our GP game).

Fittingly, Guadalupe has the big advantage of the last bid here... and hopefully she can make the most of it, because you all know where she's headed if not...
6. As if it wasn't already obvious what we're playing for in this segment, it's a Pioneer in-dash receiver w/mountable rearview camera (AL)

It's off to the Ohio River for Guadalupe, while Jordan gets... Yep, I Jinxed It:
2015 Hyundai Veloster Eco-shift DCT (1.6L, 6AT, style pkg, int light kit, FWD; RR)

...But perhaps we judge That's Too Much! too unfairly. After all, it's actually been won a fair number of times this season (by this game's standards, anyway)... five times out of twenty-one attempts (with #22 now taking the stage). And in fact, the last time we saw this game chronologically, it was used to give away two cars to a couple who'd literally just met a few minutes before. So perhaps it's actually not all doom and gloom when we see this thing rear its ugly head...

...at least, that's what I keep telling myself...

  1. On TTM, I stopped exactly where Jordan did, apparently forgetting what I just noted about a Veloster tricked out like that being a borderline hot-hatch.
