In terms of airing order, this is the 180th episode. In terms of taping order, this is the 188th episode (taped 03/27), the only episodes left being the sixth episode (aired 04/25) and all six Dad's Week shows. The only episodes taped before this week that have not aired yet are:
- The sixth episode of Sandals Resorts week (#153 to be taped) - The sixth episode of Happy Mother's Day week (#171 to be taped) - The sixth episode of Hawaii week (#177 to be taped) - Here Comes Summer week and it's sixth episode (#178-183 to be taped)
If we go back to last season, the last $100,000 hit in terms of taping order was on the episode that aired 05/14/13. That was the 187th episode of the season to be taped, on 03/18/13. The last $100,000 win regardless of order was on 06/11/13, as we all know, which was 169th to be taped (02/07/13).
So, by taping order, it had been 196 episodes since the last $100K hit, just one over a full season's worth, and a little over a year by taping date. Plus, it's been 15 months since the confetti rained down live in the studio. Yikes.
Toss-Ups: Quick solve for Carol in the $2,000 one. R1: The puzzle could have been solved with fewer letters revealed. R2: Bad dud on the Prize. R3: Same as R1. R4: Quick solve for Carol. BR: Bad thing that the $100,000 was lost. If this puzzle was solved, it would be the first confetti drop of the season. Episode Rating: 4/10
