Hole in One (or Two):
2015 Nissan Versa S+ (1.6L, CVT, splash guards, carpeted mats, paint/fabric prot; $15,443; JO)

  • Heinz homestyle gravy (12 oz)
  • Oral-B Glide 3DWhite dental floss (38.2 yd)
  • Cascade Complete dishwashing detergent (75 oz)
  • One a Day Men's Pro Edge multivitamins (50 tablets)
  • Hansen's Junior Juice boxes (4×4.23 fl oz)
  • Nabisco Lemon Oreo cookies (15.25 oz)

My arrangement starts with the gravy, then the dental floss, then the juice, followed by cookies, dish soap, and finally the vitamins.

Dental floss
Juice boxes
Gravy
Cookies
Detergent
Multivitamins
$4.99
$1.79


This is what happens when one becomes too accustomed to buying store-brand dental floss.

The audience was practically harrassing the poor woman to pick the gravy, so Drew makes a point of showing us that price after the fact. It was $2.99.

Drew's Inspiration Putt:
Just off-center.

No, Lauren doesn't get a practice putt... officially at any rate. On the other hand, that's why they added the second chance to this game twenty-eight seasons ago, so the first put effectively becomes "practice" if it doesn't go in.

Lauren's First Putt:
A three-rebound ball, but none of the rebounds are on a good line for the hole.

Lauren's Second Putt:
Not quite as strong this time, and the second bounce looked as if it was heading the right way... but there just wasn't enough juice left in it by that point.

4-for-6 on the day, but unfortunately, the two losses were the car games. Still, it's hard to complain, unless you simply happen to enjoy complaining.

  1. Is it just me, or did a set change happen on this episode?

    I seem to remember Door #4's border being bright green. But on this episode, it was white, following the trend of all the other plasma screens turning white. Has it been like this for a while and I'm just now noticing? D:

    1. I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but I first noticed this probably around about Socially @wesome Week or perhaps even earlier (Fashion Week, I want to say). So yeah, it's been that way for a little bit now.
