Wanda wins a total of $33,572


OK show. The prizes were good, but rather cheap, the contestants were OK, and the games were good.

I absolutely LOVED Wanda and all her enthusiasm; you could tell that she was a nice lady and she fully deserved every single cent of that $33,000+ and the two cars.
Ugh. Marie did a horrible job at Race Game.
Winston's last name was "Churchill", but no one made a big deal out of it. Weird...
Why, Laura, why did you not pick the gelatin capsules like you wanted to in Grand Game?
What the heck was in that first showcase to make it $27,000+?! Was it that HUGE spa?
