Punch-a-Bunch has put up a goose egg so far even if fudge wins are taken into account. Now, in what is likely its final playing of Season 43, let's see if we can't squeeze one five-digit payoff out of the thing, hmm?:

Starting next season, I'm going back to judging bailouts only as "partial wins." I think. This system no longer feels quite right. Anyway...

Bullseye, in what could be its final appearance of Season 43, aims to become the first game since Season 37 to finish up with a zero in the loss column:
Trip to the Bahamas (7n, Taino Beach Resort and Clubs, jet ski tour, snorkel boat tour, glass-bottom boat ride; $12,459; AL)

  • Argo corn starch (1 lb)
  • Santa Fe Bean Company refried bean mix
  • Philadelphia whipped cream cheese (11.5 oz)
  • Aunt Nellie's Harvard beets (15.5 oz)
  • Laura Scudder's Old Fashioned peanut butter (16 oz)

...Motely assortment of uncommon GPs. This may end up coming down to luck. (In which case, the strategy would be simple; just buy one of each item and hope the 3-2 odds in favor of you finding the hidden Bullseye pan out.)

Purchase

Total
Placement
3 peanut butters
$3.59
$10.77
WIN!

Then again, maybe blind fate is on our side after all!

(Don't celebrate yet. Bullseye may still show up during the summertime shows, in which case that unbeaten streak will still be on the line. But for now, take comfort in the fact that the regular season ends with one game still undefeated; I know some of you out there thought that would never happen again!)

[Insert sound of deflating balloons here.]

What gets me is, virtually the entire audience is chanting "SWITCH!" at her while she's making up her mind. Have I just plain failed in getting the word out about these shortcuts? --;

Jill, meanwhile, is about to discover a shortcut to Leftover Island if she's not careful...

It's off to the Ohio River for Jill, while Charlene tries to make sure we end strong with Dice Game—which is, of course, eminently doable:
