Honestly, I thought Monday's show was one of the better ones in quite a while. The way which they played up the fact that Sarita was still 1st in line for the big deal worked for me.
Now here's the context:
In deal 1, 3 traders each own 1/3rd of the cash inside the vault. All 3 kept their share; all 3 would've made good/better deals had they traded. Total inside the vault was $120. Each trader got $40. Now Sarita was picked first, hence she would be eligible for the big deal. For most of the show, every subsequent trader either got Zonked or won nothing. It wasn't until the last deal, when the Caveman (forgot his actual name) won $1500 in the drawing marbles deal.
I'll admit that you had to watch it to see the true context, but the way Wayne kept hyping it up that Sarita was somehow still leading worked. Some may disagree, but the lack of winning was the best thing possible once this episode got going. The fact that it actually happened was great.
