Except they haven't.
Out of how many playing of the game has this occurred?  I’m willing to wager it’s very few.  If the vast majority of people can do a thing, and a few cannot for whatever reason, I still submit “doing the thing” is not the problem.

The February 6 show last season had a $9.72 piggy bank. Might be at least one higher than that, but if there is it can't be much higher.

I solely blame the contestants when they can't get all the prizes over in 10 seconds. Drew warns the contestant time and again not to look at the audience for help on this game, and the contestant doesn't listen to him.

Agree Patricia played the game horribly - what was she thinking spending 4 seconds asking her friends where that first item should go?

But 10 seconds really is not a lot of time unless the products were much closer to the main table.  What if you drop an item while you are carrying the item over?  What if you can't run that fast?, etc.  I think 15 seconds would be better and the contestant would still have to be pretty quick on their feet.  Doubt they would change it after this many years...
