    A Great Episode where there is absolutely no Bankrupt Trash plus MDBR where Christina & Jessica Won the BR, but sadly it's that Stinky Minimum of $33,000.

    My rating: 8.75 (because of No Bankrupt Trash, plus $10K MW won, and a MDW to the BR)

    Those sisters were fantastic tonight! Too bad they only won the minimum.

    My rating: 8
