Did they show where the secret X was after that wipeout, or did they just say "Oh, screw it, who cares?"

It's In The Bag could be redone to use a $187(.50)-$375-$750-$1,500 payout structure, but I doubt the show wants to exert actual effort and issue Big W vouchers in an amount whose last two digits are not -00 or -50. Despite being more suspenseful, it would also mean having to (:-o) pay out more.

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

No they didn't show where the secret X was.

Larry stills calls it 'In The Bag'.   I doubt a bailout structure would work at all with a top prize of just $1500.   I don't think any contestant would bail out with just $750, a bit like how it's rare for bailouts to occur on Grand Game.
