Baskin Robbins’ “31” logo represents an ice cream flavor for each day of the month. Since 1945, they have gone on to create over 1,300 flavors but still “Celebrate 31” with a promotion on the 31st of day of each month that has 31 days. Alex said they offer their ice cream scoops for $1.31. Apparently, he hasn’t checked their Facebook page. The scoops have gone up to $1.50.
Madeline wrote down “Thirty One.” She lost her $2,600 bet, leaving her with $1,600.
Kevin got it right. His $3,900 bet brought him up to $16,300.
Emlen had the “31 Club.” He lost his $9,001 bet so finished with $6,799. So Kevin remains the champ. His 2-day total is $33,500.
