Push Over: Ida ($1K + $500 PB) pushed her way through to the South African Safari (GT: $13,213)
Next up: Michelle Schrader

SCSD #1 Winner: Maryleticia (Ida never had a chance there)
Misc.: Gwendolyn had just dyed her hair blonde.
Going up next: Rosalina Perez

SCSD #2 Winner: Destiny (Banked $1K – $9,574) (Again, no chance for Jerome)
Showcase Winner: Maryleticia ($49,373) (That brought her all-time total from the show to $58,995)
ant0824’s Rating: 8
Skipps’ Rating: 8 (B) (the odds were against Maryleticia in Triple Play, but glad she had the last laugh and redeemed)
My Rating: 5 (D-)
While the Triple Play loss hurt, I have to give some leeway due to the circumstances of it.
That was VERY NASTY of the producers to pull that on you, Maryleticia. This should go to them and not you.
Tough times for Michael.
