The Winner is the twenty-first episode of Season 2 of The Brady Bunch, and the 46th overall episode of the series. Written by Elroy Schwartz, and directed by cast member Robert Reed, it premiered 26 February 1971 on ABC-TV.
Bobby realizes that he is the only Brady family member with no first place trophy and engages in an all-out effort to win one.
When Cindy brings home a first-place trophy best jacks player at the playground, everyone in her family is happy for her except Bobby, who comes to the quick realization that all of his brothers and sisters have now won trophies and he hasn't. When he finally tells his parents what is bothering him, they encourage him to find an activity that he's good at and stick to it and a trophy is bound to come. Bobby's dreams of winning and his ability in activity after activity seems not to mesh. Bobby thinks he's found his trophy-winning activity when he enters a magazine subscription selling contest. But he finds out that his parents have asked their many friends to support Bobby's sales efforts, which to him is like them buying the trophy for him. He finally thinks he's found his activity when he manages to be one of the six finalists in an ice cream speed-eating contest on the Kartoon King television show. Will Bobby finally get his much wanted trophy?
