I hadn't really thought about this before, but the reality of death means that every day there are less people in the world than the day before.  In reality there are many more people in the world than this but for illustration: If one day there are 1000 people in the world and the next day 55 people die, now there are 945 people in the world. if 30 more die the next day now there are 915 people in the world. So we'll eventually become extinct as will all creatures as the same reality applies to dogs, cats, horses etc.

I love Hole in One, but between the screwed up putting angle and the GPs fishing for a wipeout every time, it really has lost its luster in the past couple of seasons and is becoming a bit of a waste of 6+ minutes. Only one putt out of fourteen by contestants this season too.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

100% agree. I like Hole in One lots, but I feel it's a dreadful fit for the current show. Nothing wrong with that, but since it is, I wish they'd make it rarer or retire it.

You two are right about Hole in One. I love Hole in One more than any other game and I would absolutely hate to see it go, but it needs some retooling because for the past few seasons every playing is pretty much a GP wipeout and two missed putts. The way it is now it should be played for luxury cars. Today's products weren't too difficult, although I understand switching the tissues and sprinkles and the choice between ending with the itch cream or the Garlique was a bit of a toss-up. Larae's putting certainly didn't help her, had she been up close the ball might have went all the way to George's podium!

Very easy small prizes in 1/2 Off, but surprised nothing was said about Box 4 being the box for the 4th of July.

Luxury cars for a game of skill?    Why would they risk doing that and getting a player that can actually putt the ball up there.

This is just one of those games that they've made more difficult by not having a gimme 1st GP.
I'm TheBigAK...and I APPROVE this post.

I hate to burst your bubble, but Hole in One was exclusively played for luxury/sports cars until the two-putt rule was introduced.

Yes I do remember seeing it was once played for luxury cars, although I was only half serious saying it should be played for luxury cars. I just said that because of the rarity of wins in recent seasons.

I'm a bit late to the party here, but I don't think Hole should be retired. They just need to make the GP portion a bit easier.

I will have to say though, this lineup was atrocious. I get Hole is a really long game, but that's no excuse to surround it with 5 common games. Using Torgo's timings, this lineup only adds up to 26 minutes.

On a different note, I expected an easy L7 setup for a special, and I was wrong, but it was still really nice to see that being won.

I was surprised by how good the audience portion of the set looked with the red, white, and blue colors. Hopefully there will be new colors for Season 45; The last two months of the show or so have been very hard to watch due to the bright/clashing colors.
