    That's the price you pay for free TV.

    Apropos considering where we're having this discussion, it's the price we pay for being able to skip commercials.

    I don't mind the promotion. There are clever commercials and obnoxious ones.

    You don't have to use Outback in every sentence to be effective.

    The product placement was much worse years ago. They had a number of sponsored meals. Also, don't forget about the car rewards (sponsored by Ford) and the "Target" rescue challenge.

    Having been on a pre-recorded game show, I can assure you that the timeline you see isn't always how it really went down. There could have been an hour between them being told about the Outback feast and them entering the "restaurant" (plenty of time to create that entrance). Or "around the corner" could mean three beaches up the coast. The producers are telling a story, and reality can get stretched when it doesn't directly apply to the game.

    Exactly. They may have loaded them back into the vans and shuttled them to whatever beach had the "restaurant."

    It worked so well on me that I actually took my family to Outback for lunch this weekend. :)

    Not just babes, but girl-next-door kind of hot.

    I remember a few years ago when the "reward" was watching Adam Sandler's hilarious Jack and Jill.

    Are you sure that wasn't a punishment? :D
