Socially @wesome Week #3

Drew comes out wearing a full sling on his bum arm—"Don't jump on me!" he kiddingly admonishes the audience—and we get the usual reminders of live Tweets and social-media contests throughout the episode. I'll do my best to keep you informed.

Three grand ain't bad, but it also ain't a car. Ah well, it could have been worse.

Our next IUFB feature's today's surprise guest model: Justine "IJustine" Ezarik! (I'll be using the initialism "IJ" to identify her in prize descriptions.)

2. Unidentified 16GB smartphone w/1yr AT&T calling plan (4GB data & unl. talk/text/mo) (IJ)

Apparently, Savannah's mother was a contestant once upon a time, as her shirt proclaims "Mom kissed Bob... It's my turn Drew!" So she does. (Drew: "Good luck to the next host!") ^^;

Will it help her win Make Your Move? We can but hope:

HAIL BRITNEY!

Begone, skunk! We finally have a winner, and a car winner at that!

The good news (aside from dodging the fumigation bullet): Christopher's got the advantage for the first time since the first IUFB. The bad news: This is his last shot at it, and you know where he's going if he doesn't make it.

  1. I thought you might have had something to say about the price of the Rolaids in Let 'em Roll. By the way, what exactly is the threshold in Cliff Hangers?

    1. That's where Yodely Guy would stop at if the contestant plays the game the "fandom-approved" way: guess $20 for the first prize, $30 for the second, $40 for the third.

      In my recaps, I always call it the "$20/$30/$40 Threshold" precisely to avoid this kind of confusion. ^^
