Sounded like there was a hard edit between the end of the presentation of the Around the World showcase, and her bid. If so, I wonder what the reason was?
"It's a SuperBall prize package worth $11,245!!

They were a little over time going into the 2nd Big Wheel, that may be the reason.
YES! You have them all right! You win $2,500! You will putt from the closest line!

Jhc2010 putts from the closest line and WINS!!!

Congratulations! Those 2 cars are yours! Now we go to the Showcase Showdown! You will spin first. Pick a number between 1 and 20.

I knew that 3 was the right number for the Lexus, and that the Miami trip was $6,000+.

It's always depressing to see Pathfinder completely wiped out, but at least Switch? and Vend-O-Price were won today.

Definitely nice to see Goldy today, even if it was a loss at the Lexus.  Speaking of that, though, is that the first Lexus offered in Golden Road?

And something's telling me that we're gonna see 3 Strikes tomorrow.

Unlikely. Tomorrow's show was kicked to November.

Well then.  Wonder why it was kicked though.

Trip to one of the Carolinas, perhaps?

Always nice to see Golden Road. The Lexus was a toss-up with the 7 being the only one that wasn't gonna be right. I didn't think any of the choices looked that great in the price really.

$6,128 was the most likely price in Push Over, $8,504 was a bit too much.

Tough Take Two. When the exerciser price was revealed I thought it would be one of the right prizes since it ended in -99 and the target price ended in -98 so I assumed there would be another prize ending in -99 to pick with it.

What a brutal way to start off Pathfinder this season. At least Switch and Vend-O-Price were easy to make up for it.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist. I would have started the season off on Monday with Golden Road and the Lexus. Thinking now though, the staging might have been an issue with the cast entrance and all. However, Emmy is gold... :)

I was in the audience for that show and for the life of me I can't think of any specific reason why it got bumped, twice. I know a trip offered in a pricing game wasn't an issue but I can't remember if there was anything in the Showcases.

A trip to Wilmington, NC or Myrtle Beach, SC (or somewhere in this area) would certainly be a good reason to bump the show, given the recent Hurricane Florence.

It's not unheard of for the show to postpone an episode where a trip was offered to an area struck by a disaster.

I watch only occasionally, and so I had a couple questions/observations...

I didn't know they got rid of the old Golden Road rainbow. I would be upset, except that the new reveal looks great:


This shot of Take Two is fantastic, have they been doing this for a while?


Looks like the Pathfinder price lights are getting a bit dim...


Drew seemed genuinely alarmed when he got tackle-hugged! XD


Love the split screen on the Switch? reveal! (I could do without that central monitor with the Switch logo between the prizes on the stage, though.)


Have they been doing the globe graphics for Around the World showcases regularly? It really drives home that you're having one huge vacation instead of three individual ones.
