This episode was originally scheduled to air on May 6, 2005, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, it got pushed back a year.

Moment #3 is Bob humiliating himself at the Big Wheel by failing to get it all the way around for Juanita; when she asks him if she can try it again, Bob then says: "I take back what I said a moment ago. THAT is the most humiliating moment of my life!"

So now they can't start the rangefinder for 48 hours, and Bob makes brief a reference to the 37 hours joke from the daytime show.

Moment #5 is Allie, who faints upon winning her Showcase, which brings her total to $11,088.


SCSD2
Margaret: .95
Nicole: .65+.60=OVER
Bill: .80+.35=OVER

Margaret is going to the Showcase! Since neither SCSD had the Million-Dollar Spin, it will go to the Showcase winner, or the contestant who was closer to her Showcase's ARP in the event of a Double-Overbid, so either Margaret or Katelyn will try for the big bucks at the end of the show.

SHOWCASES
Top Winner: Margaret
Runner-Up: Katelyn

SHOWCASE 1
Laptop (Gabrielle as Matilda), Evening Gown (Natasha as Crystal, prize modeled by Rachel), Camping Trailer (Shane as Gertrude), Cadillac DeVille (Lanisha as Loretta Sue, prize modeled by Brandi)
Margaret passes to Katelyn, who bids $60,611

SHOWCASE 2
Grand Piano, Diamond Bracelet, Ski Boat
Margaret bids $65,000

ARP of Margaret's Showcase: $91,783 (Difference: $26,783)
ARP of Katelyn's Showcase: $61,312 (Difference: $701)

Katelyn wins her Showcase, and takes home $64,811 in cash and prizes, but will she get a million dollars as well?

MILLION-DOLLAR SPIN
Katelyn: .50

15 shows, and no millionaire. Some post-show thoughts...

Come to think of it, if Drew Carey had hosted, Katelyn might've won a million dollars, as the :dsw: range would initially be increased to $1,000, but then scaled back to $500 in later episodes. She was even closer than Adam, who had an $880 difference to net the first-ever million-dollar win.

Along with MDS #16, and the Carey series of 2008, all 26 MDS's have now been recapped.
