Eaƨy Aƨ 1-2-3:
  1. ASUS 13.3" touchscreen laptop computer (dual-core, 8GB RAM, speakers; AL)
  2. Tory Burch designer accessories (AL, RR)
  3. LG ultra-capacity washer & dryer w/pedestal drawers (RR)

I have a sneaky suspicion they're presented in the correct order from left to right, but we'll see. The accessories could also be more than the washer/dryer (LG is often deceptively cheap)

Money Game:

Okay, Drew, this time you can say it: People do win Money Game all the time. (Not often this season, mind you—eight wins out of twenty-two playings going into this spot—but certainly more than when you say it about something like It's In the Bag!)

Normally, two zeroes to end Plinko is a downer... but when your first chip falls into the big money, it almost doesn't matter as much. ^^; Nice (fudge) win!

LHHH, would be my gut feeling.

Unfortunately, my gut is also giving me an incredibly bad feeling about this playing... I hope it's wrong.

Tough to blame her, really; it is just a cheapo Spark after all. Still, with two rolls left, I might've been persuaded to take at least one more roll... though I doubt it.

Last chance for Hoyt, but he's got the advantage...
