Yeah, when was the last time that game was wiped out? I like to say it was a couple of years back when I saw this situation occur.

The last time someone missed the 2nd number in Pathfinder ( on their 1st guess ) and proceeded to miss all 3 small prizes in a row, 1/7/2014

What happened today is a rare occurrence. I highly doubt they retire it.

It's been a while since there were car games back-to-back in the 3rd and 4th slot. When was the last occurrence of this?

Wipeouts happen every once in a while. (I think the only pricing game I've never seen a wipeout was Punch-a-Bunch, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong.) If you put every game on the chopping block when it has an occasional wipeout you'd have a mighty puny line-up.

I agree.

Once in awhile, you get either a player who, while he plays his best, gets either stuck with a difficult setup on all three prices and/or makes reasonable guesses that wind up wrong, or a player who just completely blows things.

And it's that way with every game show that has a bonus round where it is possible to end with $0 winnings. Pyramid is an example where it's possible to whiff even on the lower LH clue and then stumble on every other category and end up penniless (ergo, $0). There was the Sale of the Century endgame toward the end of the run where -- during True Romance Week (IIRC) someone failed to so much as ring in during any of his three puzzles he was shown, and the answers weren't that difficult, either: One set of clues led to the TV show "Family Ties," the second led to Abraham Lincoln (the clue had it where he debated with Stephen Douglas) and the third time ran out. Although I don't think it's ever happened in the 42-year entire history of the show, it's possible for a family to completely lose Family Feud's Fast Money and end with a double zero ($0), through a series of answers with 0 points (not necessarily all of them bad) and non-responses.

And the list goes on.

Those are enough examples ... thing is, on TPiR, a complete wipeout has been seen (not frequently, but enough times) on games like Bonus Game, Bullseye (failing to hit the target), Shell Game, 5 Price Tags, Master Key, Secret X, Rat Race ... like someone said, he's never seen it happen with Punch-a-Bunch, but it's possible ... and so on. It's just a matter of how well the player is playing the game and how easy/difficult the game is set ... and if he just did the best he/she could but still ended up on the wrong end of things.

'Dems the odds, I say. Today it was Pathfinder's turn.

OK, what do you think the show can do to make Pathfinder easier?

There was a Punch-a-Bunch wipeout around 1982. I saw the clip online years ago, but it seems to have disappeared.

I was pretty surprised the cake mix wasn't right for the $8,000 bag in It's in the Bag. I thought the orange juice would be around $3. I was pretty sure about the dressing for the last bag.

Wow was Pathfinder brutal. The less likely choice was right for the cleansing brush and iron and the juicer was a toss-up. I can't imagine total wipeouts have happened very often in the game.

I want to say there's been at least one Plinko playing where a contestant did not win any additional chips and their one chip hit $0. I think there's also been at least one 1/2 Off playing where a contestant lost all three SP pairs and didn't choose the correct box.

No comment about back to back car 4ths this week? This lineup was absolutely disgusting.

Was that a spruce up of the floor grid and lighted number panels I saw?  Almost like a lighter color?
