^Which begs the question of why Wheel had to resort to the gimmicks and throw out its prize variety.

Probably to maintain interest, but I can't see how anyone can be interested in a useless Gift Tag.

The prize variety has bugged me a lot, especially the Trip Prize Puzzle. They always do trips to the Caribbean/North America that usually decide the game and cost a lot. If they ever have a non-trip for the Prize Puzzle, I'll be shocked. (and yes, I know about the shopping spree in 2009)

Plus, I only think they do non-featured trips during the holidays & when they're too lazy to do the trip ($5,000 cash...).

...note the audience responses.

The only time the audience gets really loud & interested is when they do shows outside Culver City. The regular audiences never seem to care...

Drew has improved enough to stay around for a while, but I'm sure if he will.  ;)

He has?  Really?

Go watch some shows from the end of Season 36.  Drew has regressed.

Oops... Made a typo...sorry...I'm glad some of you caught it.
•Correction... Drew probably will not stay for season 41.

Many a prize will be useful to some people, useless to others. I could pick just about any random Price episode and find about 3/4 of the prizes (under both "regimes") that would be useless to me.

I'd assume the Gift Tag is there for sponsorship opportunities, not contestant appreciation.
