Those trips to New York just get more and more expensive.  That one today had to be around $9k.

Andre was a really fun contestant.  I was kind of surprised that he won his showcase...I expected SC2 to be well over $25,000.

It was weird to see Spelling Bee without a SP worth over $50.  It's become so much of the norm recently.

Andre's Bonkers win was fabulous. I knew the first two numbers had to be higher than 5 and lower than 7 because the distance from LA to Miami, and I also figured that one of the last two digits had to be in the above column. Good work by Andre identifying the distance rule.

Also, SCSD #1 was fantastic with Andre winning $26,000.

With That's Too Much, I thought that the contestant said the price was slightly higher than the used one. My target ARP of the car was $21,800, although it was a bit higher than that, so I thought he'd go farther than $18K+.

With Flip Flop, um, no. I thought the Pacman game by itself was over $3,000, so there was no way the first two digits were 46, and the second set was a toss-up for me. I would have flipped and flopped, and I would have lost as well.

With Grand game, I thought the drink mix was one of the two whammies.

Very good bid by Andre in his Australia showcase to wrap up season 44.

Next season is Drew's 10th, and TPiR's 45th!
