Donald is going to the Showcase! The show fades to black after Bob tells him that he will be in the Showcase, so the ticket plug is not seen. Also, we see here the wide shot of Bob and the entire wheel with the spinning contestant and the leader.

Hope and Jolene have been stuck in Contestants' Row since the show began, so not only is one of them guaranteed a spot in the FFBC, there's also the possibility of a double-induction. Will either one avoid that fate?
