The point of the clock is to prevent the contestants from taking 30 seconds on each decision,

Wouldn't "five seconds per item" work better?

I wonder if there was a time limit per small prize would it actually be enforced or would it be like Ten Chances where the time limit is mentioned but hasn't actually been enforced in many years? It would make the game anti-climatic if the contestant missed a prize because their time ran out.

The time limit hasn't even been mentioned in probably two decades.

Maybe Drew has never mentioned it, but I'm pretty sure Bob was bringing up the time limit in Ten Chances up until the end or close to it of his tenure when contestants were taking too long.

Unlike Ten Chances, the timer on Hot Seat is part of the set. How could they count down the time (whether five seconds per item or 35 total) and not enforce it?

I wasn't thinking that the timer would still be part of the set if the time limit being per item was the case. I suppose it still would be, so it would be enforced since the timer is there.

For what it's worth, I really liked Hot Seat.  The seat portion is a bit gimmicky, but it's nice to see them doing something different with a game.  The timer seems to me to both an attempt to create some suspense (I agree it should be shorter for that) and to keep people from taking forever on choices (can you say Temptation?).  It's also nice to have a wider variety of cash games.
