Switch? for two trips -- Distance Rule ahoy?:

  2. Trip to New Orleans, LA (6n, Loews New Orleans, tickets to Preservation Hall, National WWII Museum, and Solomon Victory Theater)

Look at those prices -- a total of $17,205! This is practically a car game in and of itself.

Frankly, to my eyes the start price looks the most "correct" out of anything, and that of course is the one price it cannot be. Go figure...

Exactly what I would've done myself. Well played.

Kimberly performs a brief Row Bypass, just long enough to hug Drew and then head to the Cranberry Podium. At least it was short...

  2. Killerspin Revolution ping pong table w/accessories
  3. Can-Am DS250 ATV
  4. 2011 Jeep Compass Sport (2L 4c, premium cloth bucket seats, remote keyless entry)

Actually, looking at the posted prices during the intro, this doesn't look all that bad... as More or Less setups go anyway. If she doesn't freak out, she might just make it to the Jeep after all. Let's find out...

That's the good news. And now for the bad news -- the coin flip at the end.

Although it doesn't look so coin-flippy at first -- but remember, this isn't the usual Jeep Wrangler on offer here, but a Compass. Be very careful, Kimberly...

I was afraid of that. Oh well... with Switch? being won and Kimberly taking home the three smaller prizes here, it's almost as if we did win a car game and two regular ones in the first half anyway, so it still looks good on my spreadsheet.

(CC1: I'm sure the Hollis Law Firm will find some way to sue someone over a client having to rely on CCs, eventually)

I dunno, to me this seemed to be set up for a loss. If so, way to go Kelsey!


The vultures have not been eating well this week, so Kyle better be extra careful; they're bound to be especially hungry today. Luckily, he does have the last-bid advantage. Can he take advantage?

Showcases: Lilian top winner, Kyle runner-up.

1. Get Ready For some R&R
  • Hatteras wicker arc hammock
  • Trip to Destin, FL (6n, Henderson Park Inn B&B)
  • Sea-Doo Speedster 150 15' speedboat w/155HP engine & trailer
Lilian passes; Kyle bids $21,300.
(My bid: $25,375)

And now it's time for Lilian's Showcase... but this next bit is gonna need a little setup. Bear with us for a moment, folks...

It was a little over a year ago -- on 31 May 2010, to be precise -- that Drew appeared on George Lopez's TBS talk show, and we've got the video to prove it. The topic had turned to LeBron James, and whether or not he would actually leave Cleveland (this was just before "The Decision," natch). Drew, ever the lifelong Cleveland booster, claimed LeBron would be "a fool" to leave town, and said he wasn't going anywhere. George turned it into a bet; if LeBron stayed with the Cavaliers, he'd pay Drew a thousand bucks, but if he left, then Drew would bring George on The Price is Right to present a Showcase entirely of his (George's) design.

Well, we all know what Benedict Arnold LeBron did in the end, taking his talents to South Beach and all that crap, so now it's time for Drew to pay up. And so, we bring on the recently-unemployed George Lopez for a very special Showcase...

2. LeBron James Presents: Lopez This Afternoon, with Special Guest Host George "Are You Taking Résumés?" Lopez
