One look at this leads me in the direction of $23,865. But...

That last one was quite the trick, but David pulled it off. Perhaps the spirit of the Illustrious One is helping?

He'll need it if this car is anything like it usually is in this game...

Car
$19,000

...as, indeed, it is.

I'm gonna stick my head in the guillotine and say it's actually higher, say in the $19,500-$20K window.

The Peanut Gallery wasn't much help either, since they wanted her to stop at $8,429... and you know that would have set me off under the circumstances.

Terrence, meanwhile, will be the first banishee of the week unless his luck improves in the next minute or so...

Terrence gets one-dollared into ignomiy, while Sarah plays Time is Money:

  • Kraft Deli Deluxe American cheese (24 slices)
  • Pledge Orange Clean furniture polish
  • Pepperidge Farm Flavor Blasted Goldfish snack crackers (6.6 oz)
  • Fresh Gourmet honey roasted pecan pieces (3.5 oz)

I'm putting the smoothie and the Goldfish in the cheap bin. Can't really predict anything else.

This is what panicking will get you in this game. She actually came the closest on her second try (only had the pecans and Goldfish switched from where they should have been), but once she started worrying about the clock and forgetting the rule that there has to be at least one item in each of the three bins, she was lost. 8^/
