Torgo has left the building. John and I never really cared for the way he presented himself.

Pretty Good Show.
Pay the Rent was a Little on the Wild Side.
One of the Winning Combinations has a $8.99 item in the mailbox ( Which might be a record for the most Expensive Mailbox item for a winning Combination )

4 Grocery Items $6.99 or more , and for only the 2nd time in its history , 2 items over $10.00 ( 6/20/2011, which had 3 $10+ Items )

Everything but the yogurt was more expensive than you would've thought in Pay the Rent. I had Drink mix-Cereal and Batteries-Yogurt and Detergent-Allergy medicine. The more expensive than you thought items allowed the $10,000 win, but really it was played poorly.

Oh hey, another freaking stinking time Card is played! Throwing out Week 25 (1 day week), that's its 8th week in a row now, right? At least it was a 2K draw and not a 1K.

Also, Master Key. I love Master Key, and one key wins are always fun.

The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

HYO total winnings: probably like $500k + Canadian dollars

Real life winnings: $300 + $800 in gift cards

I have a theory on Card Game - let me know if you agree.  When Drew fans out the special deck it is not shuffled and the contestant doesn't cut the deck - even though it's only a 7-card deck.  Invariably, the contestant always draws from the middle of the deck (let's say the 3rd, 4th or 5th card).  And it's never/rarely the $5,000 card.   Could it be possible the show is burying the $5k card at the ends of the deck since human nature is to make that first draw from the center?   Also, why isn't the standard deck cut by the contestant?  Again, Drew just fans the deck and invariably the first few draws are from around the middle.  Only after a few draws will a contestant start to draw from the ends of the deck.

Please let me know your thoughts....

Had the Cereal in the mailbox, the yogurt and the detergent in Level 1, the Quik and the batteries in Level 2, and the allergy relief in the attic, only to walk away with 5G.

That's 95K more in the prize budget for the final few weeks, eh?

All he had to do was swap the batteries and the cereal and he'd have had a $100,000....there were a few winning combinations with that one. I feel like it was set up much easier than normal.
