Robin chooses box #7... well, miracles do happen sometimes...

...but not this time. He would've been OK had he doubled his guess, however; the lucky box this time was #14.

After Felicia takes her place at the Lime Podium, it's time to reveal today's Very Special Guest Model: Sheryl Underwood, from The Talk. "I'd be doing this every day if I didn't have another job!"

Flip Flop:

Having seen this hot tub enough times lately to know it's never as cheap as it looks, I'd go with $7,579.

Hole in One (or Two):
2015 Nissan Versa S+ (1.6L, CVT; $14,800; SU)

(RR and MA on GP detail)
  • Tylenol Extra Strength pain reliever (24 caplets)
  • Kikkoman teriyaki sauce (10 fl oz)
  • Libman All-Purpose sponges (3 ct)
  • Maple Grove Frams maple syrup (12.5 fl oz)
  • Nestlé Baby Ruth candy bars (6 pack)
  • The Laughing Cow Mini Babybel semisoft cheeses (6 ct)

Hmm... Candy→Kikkoman→sponges→syrup→cheese→Tylenol, I would say. I think. I mean, I'm reasonably sure, but I wouldn't want to stake my life on it or anything like that...

The size of an item doesn't always tell you how much it costs. Sometimes it does, true, but not in every case.

Drew's Inspiration Putt:
Drew really is getting better at this.

Adam's First Putt:
What more need be said?
WIN!

Are we back on track with this game? Time will tell.

Do the Math:
  1. Golden West Billiards pool table w/accessories (MA)
  2. HP desktop computer (16GB RAM, HP AIO; SU)
The pool table might be the more expensive thing here, but it looks like one of the cheaper Golden Wests. And the computer is relatively high-endian by Price standards (non-Apple division). You could pretty much flip a coin and have the same chance of winning.

Jose subtracts...


Even coin flips can work out in our favor sometimes!

5. Spector bass guitar (SU)
It's been a long time... but, TRAIN SPOTTED! Manuela's the driver today, while Sheryl holds on for dear life!

I like $7,305 the best of the three realistic possibilities. $5,268 doesn't seem like enough and $9,703 seems way too high. Still, I've been unpleasantly surprised before... let's see...

Happily, this isn't one of those times! And after a rough start, we put three straight wins together... can we make it four? Let's see...

And while we're at it, let's also see if Priscilla can escape the Row on her last chance, or if she'll be staring the Ohio River in the eye...
