The good stuff:
-Awesome playing of Clock Game! Clear communication, great bids. A tad questionable starting at $300 like that, but it worked out, luckily.
-About time Stacky was won! She blew the second set of GPs by choosing the first number as free, but thankfully she snatched victory from the jaws of defeat!

The bad stuff:
-Pitiful haul on Plinko. Five chips, and only banked a meager $1500. Ah well.
-Gridlock: Oy Vey! Nailed the first set but got shot down by a very weird 68 ending.

Wow, a car ending in -49 in a game where the price matters in the post-Roger era? Color me surprised.

You know itís a good episode when someone wins Stack the Deck. Like tpir04 said, I thought Brianna had lost when she chose the first digit as one of her free numbers.

Just like in primetime a few days ago, another disappointing result in Plinko after winning all 5 chips.

Not sure why Brianna asked for the first digit in Stack the Deck, it was certainly a surprise she won despite that. The GPs were all very easy. A rare win!

Plinko has gotten rather stingy since Big Money Week, but such is the game.    Because the two and the three were available, I can somewhat understand going for the first digit as there are a few models that can go for more than $30K from what I see on Google.

There was a sloppy edit during Clock Game. Drew tells the contestant that the hammock comes with the stand and the pillow. Next, while the shot is still on the hammock, the contestant starts bidding but it is barely audible and the price of the hammock is not seen on screen until after the bids start rolling in. Why does drew not pause and allow the price to appear on screen before the bidding begins?

But why did she choose the first number free? Did she not understand the game?

I think they have been doing that intentionally (allowing a couple bids before the price pops up), probably to allow the viewers to "play along" a bit.

Plinko has gotten rather stingy since Big Money Week, but such is the game.    Because the two and the three were available, I can somewhat understand going for the first digit as there are a few models that can go for more than $30K from what I see on Google.

Although, already having picked the second number (5), it seemed less likely to be $35,000?

That was such an amazing win in Stack the Deck! I thought Brianna made a huge mistake when she picked the first number for free, but in the end, it didn't matter anyway.
