You know, if Mimi had her pick she'd rather bring David over with her for a good working over after those last two bids. But he's not a "First Four" like Andrew, and it is he that faces banishment to the "First Four" Breakfast Club. He also has the last bid. Will a little inspiration come to him?

Price:$6394   LOSS

Debra pushed those first four over like that prop hadn't been lubricated for sixty years. Took her about a minute. Maybe Drew should push the first four over himself and save us some time. Even worse, Debra though it was $6394 - but she got talked out of it by Them. Sometimes you have to stand your ground.

-Lineup: Moderate. 2nd half seemed short, felt like we could have fit Cardy instead of TTM (which needs to be 5th, at least). I will take Tempty and a SP & GP in the same show, though.
-Tempty: I won, but who else is going to? "Easy" setup for this game with the repeating 1s not an option, but still -95 and 23k/24k looking the same. 8/10
-Cliffy: Good recovery. 9/10
-Sidey: El easy. 9/10
-SD1: 4/5
-TTM: Excellent!! 10/10
-Hi/Lo: 80 cents...yep, the hard setup has returned. Someone in chat who was at the taping said the Body Splash may have been over 7.99 too...you're kidding, right?? 8/10
-Pushy: Ugh, that's as slow as you'll ever see it. 7/10
-SD2: 4/5
-SC1: A quickie...pretty well-done, though. 4.5/5
-SC2: Agh, another one of these...why? Do people like one trip only? 4/5
-Results: This was just like an episode earlier in the season. Someone bid 22,000 on a splendido, and the ARP was 20,9xx. Peanut Gallery, stop advising the SC2 bidder - it's closer than you think!! 7.5/10
-Drew: OB4 dragged it out too long. Tried to spice up Pushy but it definitely leaned too far toward teasing. 7/10

PGs: 51/60
SDs: 8/10
SCs: 16/20
Drew: 7/10

82 --> B-

EDIT: To elaborate on the below, I saw it stop at 20 at the edge of the HD feed (obviously not in SD). :/

I can see why some people get really annoyed with Drew shouting at the mountain climber. When the climber gets to around the 20th step, and they cut away from the top of the mountain to take a shot of Drew yelling, no longer including the mountain climber in the shot at all, that's just bad.

I can't say I understand how the lineups work anymore.  I can't believe we got an SP game after Temptation was played.   I can't believe the other car game was over minimum length, that the GP was not Pick a Pair, that Push Over was played instead of something quicker... yeah, I don't get the lineups anymore at all.  Having said that, it was actually a good lineup for a change.  Not just "better than usual lately" good, but good good!  Temptation, Cliff Hangers, Side by Side, That's Too Much, Hi Lo, Push Over... how can won really complain?

So... the second showcase was essentially a 1-prize showcase?  That was weird.

I don't say it often, but I feel it's warranted today:  Hi Lo was a forced loss.  Also, the editing at the end of the game was absolutely atrocious.

I'm kinda' surprised Cliff Hangers was won:  the voice recorder thing looks a lot more expensive than it is, and I thoought for sure Gereshom was going to overprice it.

That's Too Much was bizarrely easy for the price having been eighth.  I really believe that they just don't know how to make the game hard anymore.

I guess one classic Temptation cue is better than none, but still, it's not like any of those cues sound outdated.  Can't they please keep all four around?

Well, this isn't Drew's fault. Barker use to shout out too, when the mountain climber got too close to the edge. This is the (former) director's doing...

Well, in all fairness, it did seem to be the trip of a lifetime. It was certainly no ordinary "6 days / 7 nights" trip, like they usually give away. (Although it was only 4 days.. they coulda popped for a couple more days, really.

You can thank Bart for that one.


And...today's show was pretty darn good.

Tempty: I would've stopped, that's a lot of value in prizes right there. I believe either dh or Kev said in chat they remembered the price of the car from Stack the Deck a bit ago.

Cliffy: Seeing this right after Tempty was pretty sweet. And that was an exciting win! But Bart...we don't care what Drew looks like when he's yelling, show us Hans!

SBS: Great to see this show up.

IUFB4: Having Drew model those sunglasses was hilarious.

TTM: Hmm, when do we start calling this game "That's Too Easy!"? :P

Hi Lo: Terrible editing here. Todd97 in chat today said Drew did infact reveal the prices, so that must've been edited out. Although I have to admit it was kinda neat hearing the theme start on a different note... :lol:

Pushy: I have never seen someone play this game more cautiously. This was hilarious!

SCSDs: The Wheel seemed to be in a rather bad mood today, not too nice to anyone.

SC1: Pretty good. I had to laugh when Rich asked Debra if she liked exercizing and her response was "No!"

SC2: Very interesting...Who knows how to price it though...


Signatures are overrated.

Aww.
Maybe I'm the only guy who likes when Drew gets over-amped hen Hans nears the top of the mountain. It's always funny to me. And Bart's known for ruining a lotta rudimentary shots anyway, so maybe this ain't all Drew's fault.

Plus, for me, Cliffy is my AllTime Fave, and I love to see those shots of the whole actual game board while the game's in session.

Nice lineup today.. directing and editing were a little wacky. Drew and his sunglasses were funny. In general Drew has been doing a fine hosting job for a while now.

I'm always happy to see Temptation played with a fairly high value on the "gifts".  BONUS:  it was played for a decent car, too!

I've got to agree.  Hi-Lo's setup was pure evil today. 

That's Too Much:  What a strange, strange setup.  Has there ever been such a lowball starting price as $11,498?  Steve?

I've got no beef with the 2nd showcase.  I prefer to see one trip with lots of bells and whistles, rather than a trip combined with unrelated prizes.  A trip to NYC with show tickets, limo service, and CASH is a pretty nice package.

Debra F's bid on her showcase was dangerously close to joining the "Stupidest Bids Ever" club.  She won with her $1 bid, but Debra V wasn't over by much.  Debra F. was this close [holding up finger and thumb very close together] to making herself a YouTube hit - and not in the good way!!

Yeah... I don't know how I forgot about that.  I felt it was foolish for top winner Debra to bid $1 on her showcase.  Sure, she won, but it was way too close for comfort.

I've never been critical of a contestant bidding $1 on their showcase when it was mind-numbingly obvious that the other contestant had overbid.

This was definitely not one of those cases.  Despite the fact that she was over, Debra V's bid was actually pretty good.

Temptation: Great to see it again!  :-D

Cliff Hangers: It's always a thriller when Drew shouts at Hans to stop, and thankfully, he did.

Side by Side: I knew that trip could not be $2838. Great win!

That's Too Much: With all the wins this game's been getting lately, could it be that they suddenly get the hang of it? And WTF kind of starting price is $11,498, especially for one that costs about $9,000 more than that?

Hi-Lo: The evil setup du jour. I had no idea that Glad trash bags were more than the mouthwash!  :-x

Push Over: I knew she went one push too far.  :evil:

Showcases: Another $1 bid, and better yet, on a trip to New York, with all the bells and whistles!!! Lucky for her, the other contestant went over, and not by much, either.

Hopefully, we'll see some more games that haven't been played in a while return to the show, along with 3 Strikes and a retooled Bargain Bar (or whatever they're going to call it)...

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the $4000+ jewelry in Temptation. I about fell out of my chair when they showed the price!

As bad as the lineups have been lately today's was a gem! Temptation shows again, and we actually got a SP game to go along with it too!! And even though we had another quickie to end the show at least it was Pushover, which just happens to be one of the best quickies on the show.

Bart's directing during Cliff Hangers was just abysmal

Whoo hoo Side by Side 3rd!!

Hi-Lo was just evil today. Boy, the editing work here was just pitiful.

BTW, Frank, they do know how to make TTM hard, but unfairly hard when they put the price 2nd in line.

I feel mixed on the Big Ol' Trip to New York showcase. On one hand, winning one trip is a lot easier to deal with than winning three (How many people are able to get that much time off?), and I always think it's interesting to see a showcase that's a little different. But it seems bizarrely hard to price extras like half-a-day with a professional shopper, and basing a showcase around a single prize increases the odds that a contestant doesn't care about anything in his or her showcase. Plus, the showcase feels like one...really...long...plug, even if it's technically several. Having a few different prizes breaks up the pace a bit.

My at-home bid of $15,000 (which is as low as I ever bid) wasn't bad, but I had no clue if it was going to be $12,000 or $45,000.

On to the rest of the episode; I second Frank- hooray for today's lineup! Especially Temptation! I hope we see it again soon. Side by Side also pleased me- not sure why, since it's been played at a very healthy rate this year.

For Cliff Hangers...I don't mind Drew goofing around, but goofing around that takes the focus away from what's happening in the game (or away from the contestant) isn't good. Just then, it was a little more important to see where Hans was gonna stop.





"Atinale el precio" moment: Contestant Laila has jumped into Marco's arms and taken his microphone.

Laila: "How much do I weigh? Give me your bid."
Marco: "Er...without going over?"
