They’re not even close to ACING A POP QUIZ (Isaiah thought the first word was AGING) for $40K. And that’s the first cash minimum sweep all season long.
MY RATING: 4
The midsection is surely the “final nail in the coffin” in terms on another rocky week, but at least the Blue family won something big to make up. And yep, that also expected the end of a drought of a BR Minimum sweep.
Our rating: 4 😦
Sheesh, this end-of-week episode was a very messy one with all those penalties that occurred in the maingame. And wow, I can’t believe Debbie flubbed every single response in the Triple Toss-Ups.
I, too, was surprised that I & G won big after that huge onslaught of penalties.
The BR didn’t fare any better as they go for the second-worst BR category and get another forced-loss puzzle clinching a 1-4 week and our first minimum sweep all season long (and likely only one of this season).
My Rating: 4 (F+)
In contrast, the Margaritaville week may also likely only one we have no BR car landings this season (not counting those weeks without cars like this one)
This episode was just as chaotic as the last one. 😳
My rating: 5
