They really, really had some budget to burn on that trip to Aruba, offering it in Cliff Hangers, of all the possible games to offer it in.

Considering the budget for today's show, I was surprised the trip showcase wasn't a lot more expensive than it actually was.

This was one of those shows that just makes you scratch your head but also makes you thankful that we don't see nearly as big a mess as this on a daily basis. Between the usual Rent reverting to its evil self, all the themed sexed up prizes and a $47K TRIP FOR 22 in Cliff, this show reeked of excess in the worst way. I've accused the show of offering expensive trips or prizes that it knows will be declined before to give off the appearance of extravagance, but this has to be the WORST example of that yet. Not only are many people not going to want to pay the taxes on that trip, many people on the show will already have started planning their wedding and won't be able to suddenly change it to Aruba, and on top of that people might not have their wedding in Aruba if they know people can't come. Then to flaunt this $47k prize in a standard easy Cliff setup is just the height of things not making sense. Honestly, from the way Drew built the prize up I thought 3 Strikes was coming 6th. Then it turned out to be one of the worst prizes they've ever offered. Hey, maybe that's next, 3 Strikes for a trip!

The rest of the show wasn't too bad, because at least some winning happened, and the TTM win in particular was exciting (though again, the fact that the TTM winner spun second was beyond dumb. To make things worse, if Money had been won, THAT car winner would have also spun second. That's something you should try to avoid in general, and they did it twice in the same show!) And the themed garbage is annoying but it's something we've all learned to deal with on an annual basis. It was easier to deal with last year though with no Rent, no ridiculous $40k trips, and an asterisked perfect show. Shows like this just make you wonder what they're smoking over there. At least I'm fairly sure we have 9 "regular" episodes now to close out the regular season.

Oh, and Bart Eskander did indeed direct today! That's nice....

Timings:
Switch? (3.5) - 3:39
Pay The Rent (7) - 6:29
Money Game (4.5) - 3:56
Coming Or Going (3.5) - 2:46
That's Too Much (4) - 3:23
Cliff Hangers (4.5) - 6:10
Total (27): 26:23

S?: Easy.

PtW: Whether or not they intended it to play it that way, Erin & Kyle tried.

MG: I knew our luck w/ finding the first two numbers right away would run out sooner or later.

CoG: I would've lost.

TTM: Nicely done!

C-H: And what a perfect second half that was w/ a $47K+ trip here!

Showcases: They should've revealed Hawken & Ari's result first, because I knew they were way over.

Decent episode today. Actually, Ryan still directed this episode.

Aruba Rant

I DJ weddings.  Most weddings occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day, which makes sense: it's nice out, the venues are open, etc.  Since this episode taped in early May, I would be inclined to believe that a fairly large number of them were getting married shortly after taping or, at least, had planning underway.

This trip sucks.

First off, twenty-two people.  Take out the engaged couple, and that leaves twenty.  Assuming you have a reasonably-sized wedding party (let's assume best man, maid/matron of honor, and two bridesmaids/groomsmen), that knocks the guest list down to fourteen.  But wait, you need your parents to go!  Knock out four more slots, and we're down to ten.  Hope you don't have many friends or additional family members that you want to spend the greatest day of your life with.

When I heard that ARP, I was livid ... and I don't get livid at this show.  A price tag of $47,017 doesn't showcase a great opportunity for contestants.  It shows that "we're offering something crazy because we can".  Even Drew mentioned at the end of the show "hey, we had some crazy prizes today!", as if that was somehow the saving grace from a double overbid.

That being said, time for math.  $47,017 / 22 = $2,137.14 ... for Aruba.  The price tag seems lofty, but in actually it's a really cheap trip ... just for a lot of people.  But who cares about that when there's a huge number to taunt to the viewers!  GAZE INTO OUR LUXURY.

You don't get a choice of the hotel.  You don't get a choice of the venue.  You don't get a choice, presumably, of who even officiates the wedding.  You can just choose to "not" go, especially with that Cliff setup.  You needed to be a little off your rocker to lose that one.

I understand that not every engaged couple wants the same thing, but to flat-out assume that they want the entire wedding planned from the get-go is a bit insulting.  I know some shows offer that (I believe morning talk shows do), but the difference is that the engaged couples want - and sign up - for that particular feature.  These couples (presumably) want a car, money, or to fill out their registry items.

Oh wait, the showcase called this out specifically.  So, yeah, that's what the couples want: not their wedding day planned out by some focus group in a hot room.  That trip was more-than-likely turned down in a heartbeat.  (If for whatever reason that couple sees this - and they accepted - then hey, good for you, but I feel a lot of people wouldn't want that.)

That was the worst segment I have ever seen of this show, and everyone involved should be ashamed of their blatant budget flaunting.  I realize the show gave away houses in the 1950s and whatnot, but you can use a house for longer than one week.  Presumably.

Something's wrong when Switch? is the most expensive segment of a half, even if Money Game was won.  Again, they invest way too much money in these lavish trips.  For a show that claims to want to "offer prizes that have never been seen before", it sure has fallen into the monotony of "expensive trips", "designer accessories", "home theaters", "cars that will only be won when we feel like it", and "electronics".  It's just not interesting.

But that's just one man's opinion.

---

That being said, the show wasn't a complete wash.  We figured Pay the Rent was going to be lost - and the setup was tough - but they played it quite well.  That's Too Much! is always nice to see won, and the lineup - while derivative and par-for-the-course for a Rent lineup - didn't make any baffling decisions.  I thought the showcases were decent, too.

I guess if today's show was an apple, I could bite around the Cliff-sized blemish.

Too bad the credit layover on CBS credited Ryan Polito. Oops.

Sigh....so again, we get Switch for $18,475 and a $47,000 trip in Cliff Hangers and still we can't get a three-car show more than once a friggin' year? Come on. This is beyond ridiculous.

Other than the highly head-scratching record breaking Cliff Hangers, this was a fine show. Rent was actually enjoyable for quite a while as they did an okay job ordering the products. And it is always nice to get a Pay The Rent win.

Now I hope we're done with the specials for the rest of June. I feel Thursday isn't going to get here fast enough.

Embarrassing.

They have no qualms about breaking a cardinal rule of the show, and it's just really embarrassing.

Why the hell did they put so much decoration effort on THIS special of all ones? It honestly makes me a bit sick.

They have no qualms about breaking a cardinal rule of the show, and it's just really embarrassing.
Forgive me for not knowing something which is probably rather obvious, but what rule would that be?

a $47K TRIP FOR 22 in Cliff [...] has to be the WORST example of that yet. Not only are many people not going to want to pay the taxes on that trip, many people on the show will already have started planning their wedding and won't be able to suddenly change it to Aruba, and on top of that people might not have their wedding in Aruba if they know people can't come. Then to flaunt this $47k prize in a standard easy Cliff setup is just the height of things not making sense.
No, that last part does make sense -- showing someone winning such a large prize is the important part, not whether they actually take it. Again, it comes down to the appearance of looking extravagant, when in reality it just looks...well...

Embarrassing.
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.)

A luxury prize (30k+) that is not car or cash doesn't belong on the Price is Right. I believe this is the first time we've crossed 40k, and well into it.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Oh my lord, where to begin...

Is it bad when the prize value in SWITCH? is $52 LESS than the CAR offered in Money Game?

Welcome back hard Pay the Rent. We've been expecting you.

...Cliff Hangers... :headbang:

Incidently, I'm honestly getting tired of seeing Cliff Hangers. It feels like it's been played more this season than Plinko has.

Incidently, if Ari and Hawken had won their showcase, which included a JEEP, the total prize package in the showcase was still less than the prize package in their pricing game, which didn't even include a car.

At least the rest of this show was ok.
