Without delving too much into how I feel about the situation - because that would come off poorly - I really think they should have played Bonus Game for the bathroom rather than Shell Game. Yes, Shell Game still had a difficult setup, but why risk $26,000+ in bonus cash this early in the season?
CSS Champion - Season IX (Part II)
G-R Recapper - Season 44 (Part I)

And if you win that trip, you travel to the end of the Golden Road, where we have the most expensive prize ever offered on Golden Road.net!!!! IT IS MORE THAN $481,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Wild cheering and applause) LOOK WHAT WE HAVE AT THE END OF THE GOLDEN ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOUR OWN PRIVATE ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF TAHITI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You and your whole family will fly round trip coach from Los Angeles to Tahiti where you'll sign a deed to a 2-mile across, 2-mile wide island 25 miles off the coast of Tahiti. This island includes a beachouse and more! And if you win this island, you'll recieve A NEW CADILLAC XLR CONVERTIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Torgo has left the building. John and I never really cared for the way he presented himself.

As I listened to Drew explain the rules today, I noticed that he didn't mention the bonus cash.  Did I miss it?  Or maybe they did away with that bonus??  Or does he usually only mention it if the player got all 4 chips?

I assume the bonus cash is still available. Drew stopped mentioning it until later in the gameplay, when someone still has a chance of actually winning the bonus. I agree with that decision; if I recall correctly, Bob didn't mention the $500 bonus until the contestant earned all 4 chips. 

Very nice auto wins in Money Game and Line 'em Up today. :)

I don't understand the ordering of the trips in the second showcase. Why Hawaii before Lake Tahoe? Was the Tahoe trip more expensive than the Hawaii trip? If not, and maybe even if so, I would have offered it after Tahoe.

Forget the trip order, how about that reveal order? Clearly should have been in reverse...
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...
