What an absolute stinker of an episode for Big Money Week, and I mean that literally. Lucky $even shows its evil self again, the other games didn't fare well, 100K Hole in One was a bit of a mess for how far away he got to putt (darn cheap corn starch...), and to top it off, we get our lowest winnings for the day this season. I thought the option of removing the windmill in exchange for $20,000 was neat -- I don't blame his choice for the loss, and it didn't seem like it was too hard to get the putt in with the windmill there, but the loss was probably a combination of it and the distance from the hole. Just too bad he didn't get a win.

Guess we'll move on from the skunk tomorrow...

This wasn't the easiest show ever and nothing went right on top of it.

I did like the windmill gimmick for Hole in One, though. It feels like something from a minigolf course, which is exactly what it should be. It makes it a bit harder but I suspect it's mostly mental.

One of these days today.
A Non-Car game for a car.
A Car game for Cash ( Most Expensive thing ever offered in Hole in One )
I noticed they forgot to put in the $500 Bonus Stick at the beginning of Hole in One , Probably to show off the Windmill.

I thought the windmill in Hole in One was cute, but I don't see why they couldn't have still played it for a car but only have the $100,000 in play for the first putt. I did not expect the corn starch to be the least expensive item at all-- I thought for sure it was the Jello, deodorant, then the corn starch.

What is it about Hole In One that makes so many contestants fail to get past the first line in recent seasons?   That's 2/2 this season, 5/7 last season and 6/9 in season 43 where the contestant has had to putt from the furthest line.  Is it simply a case of some more obscure/deceptively cheap or expensive items being used more often in Hole In One compared with other games?

Yes, it's that simple
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

I fell they should have had this structure for Hole In One today: First putt with the windmill for $100K, second putt w/o the windmill for $20K.

I'm also surprised for Big Money Week they didn't up the perfect pricing bonus in Hole ($2,000? $5,000?). Not that it would've mattered - I too was caught out, not so much by the cornstarch but how expensive the Jell-O was, diet or not (I buy the sugar-free version and it's about the same price, about $1.25).

And I thought they might reprise the 7,000th show gimmick for Lucky Seven and give the contestant 7 $1,000 bills to use.

I absolutely despised the Windmill.  Poor Mr. Goodson must be rolling in his grave.  This is not Beat the Clock.  Hey why not just blindfold the contestant and offer $1,000,000 in Hole in One?  Ridiculous.  Imagine if he got up to the line nearest to the hole, choked and missed due to the windmill?  How does that make the show look?  I know they have to make winning the big dough more difficult but when they come across as overtly trying to disadvantage the contestant, they are walking away from why 'Price' has been such a beloved show for 45 seasons.  #epicfail

This would make Goodson roll in his grave? This is "walking away" from why the show has been so beloved?

Seasons 37, 38, and 39 would beg to differ, sir.
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

Well, I'm pretty sure they weren't expecting that to happen today.  At the very least, 1 Wrng Price and Bonkers should have been won, and the latter could have easily given away quite a bit of money.  There is no way this episode should have been skunked.

Hole in One was a pretty cool idea.  It's a shame it didn't pan out, but it was satisfying to see Drew make the inspiration putt.

Speaking of Hole in One, did anyone notice that the $500 flag wasn't there until after the grocery plugs?

In most cases it's the contestant making a wrong choice between the first two cheapest items, but today the corn starch and Jello were downright deceptive items.

I blocked seasons 37, 38, 39 from my brain; esp. S37!  LOL

What an absolute stinker of a show.  Doubly unfortunate that it happened during Big Money Week.  That corn starch is ridiculous.  I'm double-checking that price next time I'm at the grocery store.   :-D

Drew making it was pretty much the highlight of the day.  Great time to pull it off!  And I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed that.  I thought that maybe they were going to give a $500 bonus for each item he placed correctly instead of the bonus for all six at first.  Then I thought I was just goin' nuts until I backed up the DVR.


EDIT: Apparently I zoned out during Bonkers.  Never mind on the complaining about bonuses.
