This site hasFLEXIBLE HOURS, but Michael didn’t have much of anything, so he lost $30K and this taping day was a TOTAL WASHOUT.

MY RATING: 4 (F+) (bad Jackpot Round)

The next two weeks that season were AA Vacations and European Landmarks, both which are already covered. But Lucas won’t be uploading the remaining episodes of Teen Best Friends Week until Thursday, so that’s all the S24 episodes I can cover at this point. Andy should be back from vacation very soon.
