    A much better episode than a terrible yesterday. Robin won a Car and two trip with $44,861 even though we have a 5th BR loss in a row. And who needs $33K when she won more than that?

    My rating: 7.5

    Robin really cleaned up last night! If only she called the A in the BR…

    My rating: 8
