ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK: Admittedly, last Tuesday's One Away playing on "The Price is Right" was one of the toughest in a long time, with 2 being the correct last digit for the price of a Ford Focus Coupe when the other choice for that same digit was 0. However, easily getting the last digit wrong proved to be moot for Daniel Luna, as after he went for all the low numbers on his first try ($17,570), he decided to come up with a pathetic second guess of $17,772, resulting in an automatic loss; that was one of the all-time worst One Away guesses ever. In One Away, repeating back-to-back numbers is only legal for the first two digits.

Dishonorable Mentions:
1. "What is Tighty Whities?" incident by Jennifer Seiger on Wednesday's "Jeopardy!"
2. GOING TO THE CHAPEL AND WE'RE GONNA GET MARRIED fiasco by Byron & Kimberly Brown on the Hawaii "Wheel of Fortune" finale
