I'm sorry, but I was not a fan of Thomas during Balance Game. Drew explained how to play the game, and yet Thomas probably didn't listen.

I think Thomas' playing of Balance Game can safely be referred to as a "Painful Win"

Is there such a term as "Painful Win" on here? Because that was Balance Game today.  Reminding me of that Ten Chances girl during the Barker era.

Plinko is the worst game the show ever made.

So is Minnie the first-ever contestant from the Drew era to play again? It's kind of a coincidence how she played the same game the first time (2/1/08, when she lost out on a Chevy Cobalt because of El Cheapo!) and also lost, making her the anti-Paul Levine (sort of). For those who don't know Paul, he played Bonus Game and won both times, and neither one had a mistake made.
