This is a list of solutions the contestants chose or (in most cases) should've chosen to win the $100,000 in Pay the Rent. (NOTE: If you want to win $10,000, then put the lowest in the mailbox and don't worry about the attic, but in most cases to win the $100,000 you need one of the higher items in the mailbox). The winning strategy of 4-23-51-6 when there are only a few solutions is noted in later seasons below.

STARTING with Season 44Edit

The most likely win of 4-23-15-6 is noted with ** and another usually good one of 3-24-15-6 is noted with *. The best way to win with a close spread is to put items #1 and #5 on the second floor and #6 on the top. Then put #3 or #4 in the mailbox. Not a guarantee, but MUCH better than putting #1 in the mail box as most contestants do. The solutions above also fit this pattern, but it would be a lot of work to edit them to note this.

They rarely make it easy as in the first game of season 44. If it is a special episode or the most expensive item is a lot more than the second, then the solutions above aren't the best, but as you can see, if the spread is tighter, items #1 and #5 on the second floor almost always wins.

Season 44Edit

October 1, 2015 (#7224K, was Breast Cancer Awareness episode)Edit

They made it easier with eight possible solutions and she won $100,000 even with putting the cheapest in the mailbox (solution #1 below 1-24-35-6 - the preferred large spread solution). There were two solutions with the cheapest item in the mailbox. The most expensive item was 81% higher than the next most, so this made it much easier.

Good thing, too, because she would have lost on the second floor. The pain relief patch on the top was the only thing she had right, as it was the most expensive item.

For this one, there were three solutions, one each with #2, #3 or #4 items in the mailbox. Most expensive Capzasin was 30% more than the second-highest priced item. The least expensive was on the second floor in all solutions with the second-most expensive item. There were three ways to win $100,000 and the clue was to put the #1 and #5 items together on the 2nd floor so any other lower combo won. He picked 2, 1-3, 4-5, 6 and collected $10,000. Good thing, too, because he would have lost on the attic since the Capzasin arthritis cream in the attic couldn't beat the $6.49+$9.99 sum he put on the 2nd floor.

It's becoming a pattern this season. Again, needed #1 and #5 items on the second floor in all solutions with either the #2, #3 or #4 items in the mailbox. He did do better than most, though, in that he didn't have the least expensive in the mailbox, but he put the least expensive item on the first floor instead of the second, so he missed the chance to win $100,000. The most expensive Emetrol nausea relief was 25% more than the second-highest priced item, so still a tough puzzle. He chose 2-13-45-6 and stopped with $10,000. He would have lost since the Emetrol nausea relief in the attic couldn't beat the $7.99+$3.19 sum he put on the second floor.

Again, three different solutions, one each with either the #2, #3 or #4 items in the mailbox. He did do better than most, though, in that he didn't put the least expensive item in the mailbox. However, he put item #5 in the mailbox, so this doomed him. His solution was 5-13-26-4 [$5.49, $3.78, $8.98, $3.99]. He quit after the mailbox with only $1,000, (Good thing, too, because he would have lost had he continued since his first floor total couldn't beat his mailbox choice. The most expensive body lotion was 27% more than the Bisquick, so it was tough puzzle.

Again, three different solutions, one solution each with either the #2, #3, #4 items in the mailbox. She listened to the crowd and put the least expensive item in the mailbox, her mistake. Her order was 1-34-26-5 [$1.19, $10.28, $14.98, $7.99].

Three solutions, one each with either the #2, #3 or #4 items in the mailbox. Like almost everyone, she listened to the crowd and put the #1 tomato paste in the mailbox, her mistake. Her order was 1-45-26-3 [$1.29, $11.78, $12.48, $3.79]. She stopped after the first floor and won $5,000, but could've received $10,000.

Finally, one that was easier; they must be getting tired of no one winning the $100K. The most expensive was 46% higher than the 2nd most, a good spread. They made it possible to win with the least expensive in the mailbox, but he didn't. He chose 1-24-35-6, and stopped after the 2nd floor and won $10K. He would have lost, since his 2nd floor added to $19.98 and the attic was the $18.99. There were 5 good solutions with the preferred small spread solution still winning (**) below even with a large spread!

Three solutions, one each with either the #2, #3 or #4 items in the mailbox. He put the #2 coconut water in the mailbox, but thought the cat treats were expensive and put them in the attic. He chose 2-13-46-5 and could have won $10k, but he went for it all and lost. The most expensive pot pie was 25% more than the cat treats, so this was a difficult puzzle. Again, the key was figuring out the #1 and #5 prices.
