That's the most unusual-looking set of flatware that I've ever seen!   :P

Pass the Buck's old 1-4-6 combo strikes again!  How many playings in a row have those numbers held the car and $8,000?

I was beginning to think that this was another two-model show, and then Daniel appeared.  I wonder why he showed up so late?

Pretty good show in my opinion. I think that the contestant playing Pass the Buck should have gotten at least one more pick (at least I wouldn't expect those almonds in that small pouch to cost $2.19, I don't know about anyone else).

I did not expect the Lucky $even contestant to win the car, especially when she had to get the last number right on the nose.

S?: Easy for me only.

L7: I'm surprised the price wasn't more evil than it was after yesterday, let alone the fact that it was won again! And that was the Taylor Randall ARP, too!

Bonkers: Tough loss.

SM: I thought Ronald had it won after the exerciser's price was revealed.

PtB: I don't quite understand why none of the groceries were gotten right in that playing; at least it wasn't a wipeout.

Safe Crackers: Breakeven day!

Showcases: I knew Ronald was over by a little.

Good, solid show after yesterday's fun.

I nearly crapped myself when 5 was the last digit of L7. Of course, I was at work so good thing I didn't!

For a brief moment this morning, we had a streak of 9 straight PG wins. Too bad Bonkers couldn't get us to 10 :(

Also, after yesterday's Plinko debacle, I retorted that Lucky 7 had been lost because the contestant did not win the six dollar bills left over from a perfect playing.

Lucky seven was easier than i expected. Bonkers could have been won but Swap Meet was setup for a loss today. I was worried that safe crackers wasn't gonna be won.

Wow, another good one today to follow up yesterday. Lucky $even has sure had a lot of dramatic wins this season. I'm sure it all makes Mike want to make the price 19189 every playing, but there's not a lot you can do when someone gets the second number close, and knows to go to an extreme on at least one of the other numbers. That being said, I knew our perfect week would come to a close as soon as I saw that $9878 Hydropool show up in Bonkers. Sure enough, bad anchoring resulted, just like I predicted there would be, as that was a pretty rough setup. Ah well.

I'm getting REALLY tired of Pass The Buck being set up to be wiped out every single time. It doesn't exactly make for fun viewing. It's amazing that the setups have gotten much better on a lot of games, yet a certain few games still seem to be holding out. Not sure why designer crap needs to be the match prize every single time in Swap Meet either. Still, a pretty great followup to yesterday. Surprised how well a week this late in the season is doing.

Switch? (3.5) - 3:10
Lucky $even (4.5) - 5:08
Bonkers (4.5) - 4:10
Swap Meet (4.5) - 3:54
Pass The Buck (5.5) - 5:23
Safe Crackers (4.5) - 4:23
Total (27.5): 26:08

Mike seems to not quite realize that putting the non-extreme digit last is a big help. I don't expect another -95 next week.

Swap's had a terrible season, partly because of a couple blown setups and also because of designer crap ranging the entire spectrum.

Nice wins on Switch? & Safe Crackers and a great win on Lucky Seven! :-)  I thought for sure Lucky Seven and Safe Crackers were going to be lost.

Good show overall, IMHO.

After yesterday, there is definitely nowhere to go but down.

The 8 and 9 strike again in Lucky $even, but Shannon narrowly survived the 9 to nail the easy 5 at the end.  I can't believe Mike actually made 5 the last number.

Swap Meet was hard.  I thought $700 was right for the sunglasses.

My showcase bids:

Obviously not as good a show as yesterday's, but still a very solid show with over $80K in prizes given out.

I thought Switch? was going to be evil (by having a cheap ATV). Turns out it was easy.

Having guessed the same numbers the contestant did for the first two, I would have gone with 5 for the fourth digit too, if only to make sure I had both possible extremes (9 and 2 or even a second 1) covered, as well as numbers in between. But with no weird options on the Fusion, 5 was definitely the safe bet for the last number.

Bonkers was tough, having to go higher than the 6's and the 5. Not sure how much it would have helped to at least keep the paddle lower than the 8.

Swap Meet was evil.

I think what I hate more than the evil GPs in Buck lately are the car's hiding behind the extreme numbers in most of these setups; even with more than 1 pick, contestants don't psychologically go for the 1 or the 6 often, except for experts and those whose birthday is on the 6th (or 1st).

OB6: Drew: "This is your one chance to bid; don't blow it." Contestant: "$6,000." Drew's thoughts: You blew it.

At least Safe Crackers got in another win; that game hasn't had the best of seasons this year.

SC2 was ridiculously overpriced, but not as ridiculously overpriced as Ronald thought it was.

Why in the hell are they bringing in Daniel Goddard. He really sucks. He looks like a deer in headlights. Get rid of him!!!  PLEASE!

The Switch Setup had me fooled.

I NEVER expect her to win that dramatically.  And I mean this in a "funny, fun loving way" but she sounded like an Ewalk the way she was screaming when she won. . :lol: :D

Exhibit A on why wearing flip flops or sandals hinders you at Studio 33.

Swap Meet was an evil trap.

He got $3k more than I was rooting for him to get.

Safe Crackers was easy.

And by the way, the show today was great BUT overloaded with designer crap and our newest Model D.G.

Daniel won a nice showcase!!

Glad I'm not the only one who actually thought the last number would be a five. It seemed probable since the other three were such extremes. I bet they were banking on a loss at the fourth number in the price if not the third.

I beg to differ.  He seems like he's enjoying himself.

So, (Gregory) is a bartender, he got picked, and I got a beer out of it.  I'm hoping for a six-pack.  George, what do we have for him?
