Looks like we'll have to wait until the Back-to-School show for Goldy to show up.
I wouldn't be surprised if they skipped GR again because they want to play Pay the Rent Tuition and don't want to run the risk of two major wins.

What surprised me was, Harley-Davidson makes a motorcycle that costs less than $10K.

Don't count on any Big 3 on #6022/3/5.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

I believe the photo site confirmed it as 6022K.

Big 3?  Assuming that means what I think it does, which two of these aren't included:
Pay the Rent
Golden Road
Triple Play
Plinko
Three Strikes

Pay the Rent and Plinko.

Golden Road, 3 Strikes, and Triple Play are both considered "Big 3" due to their relative winability (1 in 24) and huge payouts (often upwards of $80,000). Similarly, they are not played very often so as to keep the budget down. Recently, Pay the Rent has been a 4th game that has similar properties (albeit slightly less winnable but can be easily manipulated so as to have a great shot at $10,000) but is not part of the original Big 3. Thus, "Big 4" would refer to all four, but "Big 3" excludes Pay the Rent.

Plinko has never bee considered a part of any of these categories since $50,000 is virtually impossible to win and it shows up on a relatively weekly basis.

That's one way answering his simple question....

Not to mention that Pay the Rent is played considerably more often than Golden Road, 3 Strikes, and Triple Play are.

Pay the Rent was played ten times this season compared to the Big 3's combined nine.

Well this show started out crappy. Blah/Wasted pick Money Game, distance rule Most Expensive loss, and a complete logic fail Pick-A-Number.
I was perusing around online through some Price clips and found this, and it got me to thinking "was this a wasted pick?" As Roger did, Mike can make the front and back halves, and the nine pairs of numbers on the board anything he wants. So while this playing was still blah, perhaps it wasn't as bad a waste in choice.

Yeah, it really was.  There are always three choices in Money Game that are reserved, whether the contestant is aware of it or not, for the first two numbers -- the three lowest choices that are not blatantly obvious El Cheapos.  20 was not one of those choices in that clip.
