Swim spa from American Acrylic
Ski boat from Glastron

Teresa bids $14,000

Monika bid $10,000, ARP is $13,630, difference is $3,630
Teresa bid $14,000, ARP is $23,441, difference is $9,441

Monika wins a total of $15,230

Nothing special about this one. A painful Lucky Seven loss, a measly showcase was won, and the contestants weren't all that great. However, the some of prizes were nice, the game selection was good, and the showcases were nice.

Lucky Seven: OHHHH! I thought that Monika would have won! Sure, she chose a 2 for her last number, but nonetheless... What makes it worse is that even if she had stuck with all 5's for the last 3 numbers, she still would have lost.
Secret X: Whoa! What an expensive trip! Also, the blonde woman that the camera panned to a few times was Betty, the contestant who won $45,000+ on this episode:,18051.0.html. I wonder if she was a friend or a relative of Teresa. She didn't seem like a random audience member.
Squeeze Play: That 0 was begging to be taken out. Plus, that vehicle was a little too cheap to be offered on a nighttime show.
Showcases: Now THAT was a huge spa in showcase #2. Teresa should have bid at least $20,000 on that one.

I can find something noteworthy and perhaps this wasn't the only episode where this was the case:

Secret X's prize being played for an African safari the theme of Tom Kennedy's first game show, "The Big Game." That is, Battleships with an African safari theme.
