Nice to see not only one, but both car games won! Nice close win in the Card Game.

When was the last time a model wasn't the one changing the numbers in One Away?
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Price fans, I won't say this is the correct solution for Pay The Rent, but this one would get me $100,000

$1,000       MAILBOX: Skinny Pop Popcorn -- $4.99
$5,000       1st FLOOR: Russell Stover Candy $2.49 + Nail Polish Remover $3.69 = $7.18
$10,000     2nd FLOOR: Rayovac Hearing Aid Batteries $7.95 + McCormick Brown Gravy Packet $0.99 = $8.94
$100,000   ATTIC: Aleve Pain Relief Tablets $9.86

Considering the car games have in a bit of a slump lately it was great to see today turn it around.  A close win in Card Game and a perfect One Away.
Plinko is the worst game the show ever made.

I knew that Emily wasn’t going to win Pay the Rent after she put the least expensive item in the mailbox, and I also knew that the pain reliever was more expensive. I thought it was pretty stupid that her friends encouraged her to keep going at the $10,000 level.

Unless I'm mistaken, the popcorn, candy, and nail polish remover could go on the bottom two levels in any combination. The top two levels have to be exactly as you have them.

This had to be one of the worst if not the worst playing of Pay the Rent ever. Besides the usual bad move of putting the least expensive item in the mailbox, the pain reliever was clearly the attic item and there's no way she should've went for the $100,000. Wonder how Ezon would've done since he really wanted to play a cash game.

What a win in One Away, and three dollar spinners on the wheel!

They've had the $7.95 battery package on recently. I knew it was cheaper than the Aleve, and I don't pay that much attention to the grocery items.

A close win in Card Game and a perfect One Away.

Both, I would imagine, that Bob would have said "Bea-u-ti-ful!" about (and possibly with the Card Game one, "We are in the presence of a miracle!").

Hi,

   As a simple 'solution' to the Pay The Rent 'problem', why not have Drew actually SAY in the game explanation that "the correct combination is NOT least expensive to most expensive"?   

   We all agree it's exasperating to watch a contestant like today so sure and happy with herself putting the gravy in the mailbox, when we know the game is already over (Drew included, and I think he has become outstanding at professionally continuing with the game, while subtly hinting to LFATs that he knows the game is over too, and really trying to steer the contestant to quit at 10K without crossing a line of impartiality).

   Someone who can crunch numbers better than me can figure out how that might affect the win rate.  But, much like similar ideas to make games easier (one card less in Stack the Deck), my hunch is that it wouldn't result in many more wins, but would certainly make the game so much more exciting to watch in that at least there is a greater possibility of wins (and playing with item combos that would be very interesting). 

    And, I bet a decent amount of people will ignore all that, be caught up in the moment, and still put 87 cent gravy in the mailbox.   :-)

The game doesn't preclude making the cheapest item the one that really does belong in the mailbox. They could easily have a setup where 1 < 2+3 < 4+5 < 6.

Hi,

 Understood, but given that the vast majority of contestants incorrectly put the cheapest in the mailbox (the 'problem' with the game),  just never make a setup where the cheapest item could be in a correct solution, and then you can announce "least to most is not correct", thus strengthening the game?

A few times in the past,  he has mentioned ( when it comes to the placement of the grocery items) that it doesn't necessary have to be least expensive to most expensive.

This season , IIRC , he mentioned during one playing , that the only hint he can give is ' the floor above has to be more than the floor below it '
