Final Stats: Season 42

Remember, this final "week" actually began on 2 July, and incorporates the make-good rebroadcast that aired that day and the Fourth of July Spectacular in addition to the just-concluded Back to School Special.

[1] Episodes #6424K (aired 17 October 2013), #6542K (24 December 2013), and #6585K (24 January 2014) featured one partial win by this site's definition and five losses. Episode #6761K (26 May 2014) featured two partial wins and four losses.
[2] Only ones seen in the final broadcast count. Some episodes may have had overbid rounds that were edited for time constraints.
[3] A playing of 10 Chances on 10 April 2014 contained a prop malfunction that may or may not have directly affected the final outcome of the game itself. For our purposes, this is not enough to consider it a true "technical" win.

[1] Because Plinko was played six times on Episode #6435K, Plinko was actually the most frequently-played game of the season. For the purposes of this title, however, that gimmick is discounted.

Finally, with an assist from tpirsummaries.8m.com, here's a look at how we did compared to Season 41:

Of course, tpirsummaries keeps far more and more detailed stats than I do, including the ratio of male to female contestants, how many stage players came from which color podium in Contestant's Row, most and least expensive one-bid prizes, and so forth. The comparison chart above is simply the points where their stats and mine overlap, and can thus be compared. Next year I hope to use the figures quoted in this post as my point of comparison so that all the stats I keep track of can be fairly evaluated.

[1] tpirsummaries considers partial wins/bailouts in a different fashion from myself, but one element remains constant -- both sites only count bona fide wins in the percentage total.
[2] Again, only overbids left in the final episode count.
