If you told me a El Skunko show was avoided by a Punch-A-Bunch win, I call you crazy.

With that setup in Money Game, I was very, very confident that the last two digits were 17. I would have chosen that first. :-D

Close indeed, but over in Grocery Game. I would have tried to inch up to between 20 and 22 dollars.

Wow! $25,000 in Punch-A-Bunch! What a great end to the sequence: $500, $100, $25,000.
 
Too bad about the double overbid at the end of the show.

If I went back and Told April Me that Punch a Bunch FINALLY gets the $25K won my April self would look at me like I'm Crazy.

La Cheapa/El Cheapo and just overall claiming victims in Money Game name a more iconic duo

Okay, that Punch win was superb. Any $25,000 win yes, but this one was hiding waaay off to the side in hole 30. Not often is a side edge hole punched, excellently played.

I never thought I would see the day when Punch-a-Bunch of all games would save a show from any skunk, let alone an El Skunko. That game had a 52-playing losing streak stretching back to season 46 going into this playing. Now Temptation has the longest current losing streak of any game aside from Plinko, at 41 consecutive losses (stretching back to season 44).

Stop the presses! Punch-A-Bunch was won! Fun fact: the hole the $25,000 was in hadn't been punched since June 3, 2010, which is probably not a coincidence. Otherwise, I agree the 17 in Money Game was so out of place it almost had to be correct (and was.)

Stop the presses! Punch-A-Bunch was won!
Why do I have a feeling this has something to do with why this episode, and not the one that was actually pre-empted, was the one that was moved to June?

This episode was moved to June rather than the one that was actually preempted because of George's 10th anniversary. The episode closest to the anniversary of when he was formally added to the cast was the April 19 episode, so they aired it on April 20, rather than have it air 2 months later.

Bad luck today in Money Game with the contestant falling victim to El Cheapo/La Cheapa. And when's the last time someone punched out the 25k slip in Punch-A-Bunch?

^Halloween, 2017 (http://"http://www.golden-road.net/index.php/topic,27808.0.html").

This was in the height of budget mode, so of course we have the lowest showcase ARP this season and both cars being kind of difficult (La Cheapa, $XXX0X). I didn't think any of the other four games were necessarily set up to be lost though; they weren't total give-mes, but I've seen worse setups for each.

And that's awesome that Punch of all games was the game that stopped a winless show

Does anybody else find it interesting that just yesterday the Q&A thread was discussing who watches the hole order in punch a bunch, and today Drew mentions that Amber is the "official watcher". Just me?

Holy wow.  Punch a Bunch not only won, but the only game won all day.  That was insane.

Actually, the whole show was kind of nuts.  The only thing won outside of Contestants' Row that wasn't won by Brian was the $176 from Money Game.  They really just could not seem to give anything away today, with one glaring exception.

EDIT:  Also, while I love hearing the classic cues, why in God's name did they play the gown music for a car?  That was weird as hell.

Again a contestant starts Grocery Game by selecting several of the least expensive item. At least she didn't say 17 like with the taco seasoning recently, but still not a good idea to start with the cheap item.

As has been said, what a win in Punch a Bunch! And to prevent a winless show! Wow!

Too bad though we end the show with a Double Overbid, and neither was that far off.

That was smooth jazz music for chillaxing on the go. :)

Yeah, they kept to the theme for that SC1 car.

I feel like I saw a 1/6 with Punch on Pluto.TV, but certainly the first time I can remember seeing an episode live with such a feat occurring, and this is in the 1-top-amount era for Punch.
