The only good thing about today's show was the double prices win, the 26 grand won on big wheel and the other 1000 dollar winner on the big wheel. At least today's show wasn't skunked. Also the only game setup for a win today was squeeze play and double prices was miraculously won. I'm surprised squeeze play Jacob didn't remove the 1.
pepe! It took us all summer to clean out all the skunk stink from seasons 36, 37, 38, 39, and 40!!!

^Except she didn't put the cheapest item there.

I feel 4 wins was the most that were going to be reached. Money Game wasn't particularly evil, Squeeze Play was fair, and people still can't figure out Macs are expensive.

Switcheroo is just starting to get painful to watch.

I will say that lineups with Pay the Rent in them are improving this year with SP/car games. First with Five Price Tags, now this.

Elskunko, Double Prices was practically a gimme. Ends in 9 + Ends in 9 = Ends in 8.
Certainly more competent in running a game than Roger Goddell.

The first Showcase took less than 60 seconds. I'm not even sure how to react to that.

So Rent goes the first 5 weeks (excluding 5660s) without any hint of it in sight, and now has 3 playings in 5 weeks? What a tease. She sort of played in a weird hybrid way because everyone seemed to overprice the dog food, but the fact is she was trying to put cheapest in the box, so whatever.

The fact is, a show with two broken games at its bookends, and Money having unusually bad, unforced errors, and other evilness elsewhere like in Eazy, won't turn out to be a good show. Drew managed topped it off with his gaffe thinking it was 0/6, which it might as well have been. The double dollar was nice at least.

I expected a 2-prizer after that lineup, but I guess it was super rushed as we bled into 11:47 on the second bonus spin. The fact they've really evolved into using 2-prizers explicitly is disappointing, still.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

At least Drew did mention this time around that Pay The Rent is "not necessarily from least expensive to most expensive". Now, he just needs to take out "necessarily".

Yet another contestant wastes a pick on Money Game. And yet another contestant does not understand how Switcheroo works.

Thanks to that $25,000 bonus spin and winning a $37,000+ showcase, Jacob's total winnings are actually higher than yesterday's DSW total. Nice to see someone come out with a big win from an otherwise lackluster show...

I have no idea where in the world you got that figure, but the total winnings today were $83,587

EDIT: Yes I do, you completely forgot about the person who won their showcase.....which was $37,000 alone,...

Ugh, Sigh, I hate when people say this...First of all, the dog food was the cheapest. She clearly knew the dog food was the cheapest, too.

Honestly, just because she picked the plates doesn't mean she thought they were cheap. I even myself put them at 2.99...

Lest we not forget this?

Best Contestant: Jacob. for winning 26k and the showcase.

Worst Contestant: Marianito, playing Switcheroo horrible.

Why do you even bother with this? Is it any surprise that day after day you pick the person who wins the most as the best and the person who fails the most as the worst?

I liked today overall, despite it being a Rent day. Drew, as usual, was variable in mood, but at an acceptable level today. That is, save for that awful blunder about there being no winners in SCSD; this was inexcusable.

However, on the bright side, Drew actually explained Rent pretty well, and a whole hell of a lot better than he usually does. Sadly, Kristine wasn't the sharpest crayon and put the lowest item first. Again. Until someone who is a LFaT somehow manage to play this game, this is the snafu we'll be in. Don't mention Veteran's Day last season, please- I'm sure he thought the same bad strategy was the one to use.

Edit: Meh culpa, the dog food was lower, but I still think Kristine thought it was the lowest of the GPs.

Money Game: Drew was very blah here, as usual. Once again, I have no idea if the money rule still remains in this game. I'd like to think so, but this falls under a similar gray area to me that Switcheroo and leaving the numbers alone does (more on that later). Some of Crystal's picks here were inexcusable, namely the 54, 19, and 78. None of those even remotely make sense.

Squeeze Play: Yay, Montreal! Too bad George had to go over the top with a accent, and a bad one at that when this was introduced. As I could tell you personally, it's not cheap to live there; that and junior suite would tell me it's the most expensive of our 3 options, so it had to be $7,826. $7,816 doesn't look right, and the 8 was obviously the 2nd digit, given the average (non-sexed up) trip on Price these days is just over $8,000. Poor playing, and Drew was unmemorable but not focusing too much on the coats, thankfully.

SCSD1: I'd ask for a touch more animation in Drew for the $1 Bonus Spin, but given Drew's standard this was about what we, the viewers could hope for. Very exciting for me, nonetheless; I thought giving Jacob's spin power there was no way he'd get any additional money from the wheel.

Eazy: Yay, Gaston got up. Drew hinted as much with his close bids the last 2 rounds, but I think he was a LFaT. Drew had a solid explanation here, nothing special. I also thought he was right with 3-2-1, even with the Macbook Pro, I thought that Washer set was the upper $3,000ish one. I found it interesting that he placed the 3 block first, rarely do contestants go out of order placing these blocks, at least, when I've been watching.

Double Prices: By far my favorite part of the show. Not only was Martha pretty smart, and saved the show, but Drew was fantastic at the end of the segment. He made a reference (I'm not sure if intentional) to Barker saying, "A winnah!" Pretty awesome, I must say.

'Roo: Slot win, lineup win. Not perfect, but pretty darn good; this last really helped. Marianito was extremely annoying to see stumble through this game. As Drew put it, he was focusing way too much on the SPs. Yes, you should care about the SPs since you then use process of elimination, but he was messing with 2 SPs that really wouldn't have helped him.

Drew irked me again about his hosting of this game; he needs to remind the player (even if the choice to correct is blatantly obvious, like today) that they do not have to go again or switch any numbers. Same problem in the second trail; too much focus on SPs, with maybe 5 moves of those, and 1 of the car. He must have really liked that Pasta Maker, or hated the car.

SCSD: Yay, more money; and it goes to a good player.

SCs: Overall, what a Mikey day; 3 overall trips AND a 2 prizer. Pathetic. Once again, very mediocre reveal by Drew, acts like he couldn't care less, though he showed some decent excitement when stating Jacob's total.

SC1, I have no damn idea what they were doing here. A boring 2-prizer, which went by way too fast, had the car at that new angle platform that I hate. If Jordan is right that this was under 60 seconds, that just shows the incompetence of this staff, in case anyone was wondering.

SC2: More sexed up trips, with designer furniture. I swear Mike is doing this just to spite GR. This had no connection, and needed better writing. Frankly, I would much rather see a LONG overdue Splendido showcase in its place. While I'm usually opposed to the sex-ups in SCs; this one is no exception, but I must say, the jet pack excursion looked pretty darn awesome, I must say.  :)
