  1. Five pairs of Jimmy Choo designer shoes (RR)
  2. Dell 27" touchscreen computer (8GB RAM, 2TB HD, 32GB SSD; AL)

A nice round number like that doesn't logically seem to go with either one, but it obviously has to go with one or the other...

Like I said at the end of yesterday's post, things could only improve. $5,260 may not seem like much, but it does snap a futility streak of eight consecutive losses dating back to Monday, so that's good.

I know this episode is airing way out of order, but still, this game while we're still licking our wounds from yesterday's skunkjob is just cruel slotting. Tariq, be smart about this and just take the prizes...

BLEW IT
($21,890)

Three out of four is closer than we've been getting lately, but as we all know, in Temptation anything less than perfection doesn't count. It is simultaneously one of the most generous and one of the cruelest of all car games.

In honor of David Letterman, this game has been temporarily retitled to Stupid Human Tricks, mostly because you'd think Johannes would've learned his lesson by now about scaling mountains:

And in contrast to Cliff Hangers, Cover Up has actually had a better-than-average showing in Season 43! Fate can giveth as well as taketh away.

She kinda had the right idea on her third attempt, but backwards.

I guess Bowflex was the big clue here. Gray's Bane led us to a 4-for-6 day; very refreshing after yesterday's debacle!
