Interesting that some bars of gold were up for bids. Haven't seen that prize offered in a LONG while on the show, though......

Yeah, I always wondered if those would come back. Sure, they aren't electronics, but I think they're a neat gimmick prize on occasion. I mean, what's more attention getting than gold?

I think the lack of gold bars on the show these days has more to do with the ridiculous and wildly fluctuating price of gold these days...

Those three bars of gold are worth about $3700 today!

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

I remember watching this episode and getting excited for Maureen as she ran the table in Superball....
