Easy setups all around today, apart from a typically nasty Lucky $even setup (but hey, Don himself said he was terrible at L7 :P). Not surprised that this was a 5/6.

The wide shot of the turntable rotating for Now...or Then was very nice to see.

I'd like to know who Amber was trying to one-up in the first three one-bids.

Did anyone else notice the camera was briefly visible while Sharlene was running around the stage when the car was revealed in Gas Money? Surprisingly, no one posted about it in the chat.

Really? A 2-prize showcase with the cheapest car on the market? (the Versa with splash guards costs $13,005)

Good Show Today.
Our 2nd 5/6 show of the year. One Lucky Seven number away from a perfect show.

Nice to see a win in Gas Money with a 'Money Game / El Cheapo' Car Price.
This is the 1st time ever ,  the Car has been won in Gas Money with a Correct Price ending between 01-09

I suggest that the new recapper list the showcases in the short win-loss summary.  thanks

Great to see 2 perfect wins on 1/2-Off and Gas Money.  Sharlene played Gas Money perfectly.  You could see she was decisive and had a plan.  I was more excited to see the $10,000 cash won in Gas Money vs. the Car but I know they go hand-in-hand.

I've thought for a while that they should include the $10,000 in the reveal somehow, perhaps like they do with other car games where there is also a minor prize (More or Less, Any Number etc.).   Most contestants would be excited for the $10,000, then the car would take it over the top.

I never thought about that before, but I do wonder why they never included the $10,000 in the prize description. It is a significant secondary prize and they include the secondary prizes in other games that offer a car and additional prizes (although in most cases those prizes are also being priced). Even if George just says "You can win a new car...and up to $10,000 in cash!"

The spiel would have to be the other way around (you cannot win the car without winning the $10,000 as well): "You can win up to $10,000 in cash! ...And a new car, too!" Something of that nature.

It would also provide a use for the old $10,000 bill from Punch-A-Bunch.
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.)
