When I saw the setup for Pick A Number, I was 100% sure the missing number was 8. If that player had chosen a 1, I would've smashed my head into a wall. If she had chosen a 3, I would've let out a loud "NO!". She chose a 3. I thought for sure that would be a pathetic loss.
*3 shows up*
Me: Shows you how much I know about that game. >_>
Sometimes, the trick is that the obvious one is the right choice. I was thinking the same way you were.

The last time Triple Play was played was last January, if I recall. This might very well be the third and final playing of such game during Season 40. Now the countdown is on to what I think will be the third and final playing of Golden Road. I'm guessing they're going to play Golden Road on the Teen Drivers' episode this Memorial Day.
As for Pick A Number, I was not surprised there'd be an under-$4000 prize this time around, despite the norms that they try to offer prizes/prize packages that are $4,000 or more. And Oregon is not too far from California, so that would not justify an $8,000+ price tag. Only a stupid idiot would have picked a 1 for the first digit. Also, let us not forget that one playing of Switch? had two prizes and the total of the prize package was $2,700, if I recall (there was an $800 prize involved).
And Clock Game? I thought she would not get it, given she took so long and was jumping all over the place with the first prize, and got it with barely over 2 seconds remaining. I was rather surprised that the contestant got the latter prize in just 3 bids with only a split second remaining. Just goes to show that miracles can happen.
That first prize was a nightmare in every respect, but I will give her credit for one thing: She did not, at any point, try to bid anything higher than $999. She appeared to know that much of Clocky's unwritten rule, which arguably puts her ahead of 99% of everyone else that plays this.
