    In Season 36, it was actually the red spot that was the hardest spot. In Season 37, it was the blue spot. In both these seasons, there were 380 shows total. 380 * 6 items up for bid = 2,280 total items up for bid.

    In the last two seasons, the contestant in the _______ spot won ______ of the time.

    RED: 25.0%

    BLUE: 23.7%

    YELLOW: 24.6%

    GREEN: 26.7%

    NOt really...


    But two episodes have similarities (10-28-10 and 11-10-10):


    - The blue spot never chosen


    - 6 games lost each


    - double overbid on the showcases, result -> more EL Skunkos

    ALL SPOTs have a hit or MISS ....depends on the LUCK of the show,


    AND


    the most important element: HOW SMART the contestant with the LAST bid plays it out



    >When I was on: the bikes I won were valued (some thing like $850?) or so,


    and the "BID WINDOW" was 501 - 1050 ( or some thing like that)...



    meaning the guy (or girl) bid 500. and the other person bid (?)some thing like 1050...


    so if I went w/ my "lucky number" or a random bid of 625 I gave the


    person that said $500 (UP TO) 624, if my bid would have been 1051 I had the ceiling


    on the max amount of the prize...


    Usually people just have fun and take a Guess on the bid...



    BUT I had last bid, and I said (501) that meant I snubbed out the 500 $ bid,


    and had all the way up to 1050 ( or something) .. .. there is NO REASON if the


    person plays the way you should the LAST bidder can't get up on stage...



    BUT,


    when you are there , just having fun and (sadly) people "feel sorry" for some one


    like if some one bids, 2000 ( they obviously over), the next bid is 650, and the next


    bid is 651, *SOME TIMES* the last bidder who CLEARLY can GET on stage by


    JUST SAYING 652, will take the HIGher road and say......885 . . .leaving a "bid window"


    of over $200. and the (651) walks up and makes history... or at least tries to !!

    Another contestant named Joselyn was in the blue spot the whole episode and never got on stage at all! Why is the blue spot very difficult to win on stage?
