### "National Bingo Night" Episode 2

Felicia Hamm is the first studio player tonight, and she's very excited! She's trying for an Around the World trip in this first game. She's playing "Red or Black". On each turn, the player must guess whether the circle outline on each ball that comes out will be red or black. If she gets eight matches before a Bingo is made, she will win the big trip plus a \$5,000 KMart gift card.

For you people at home, the red cards are in play for this game. \$5 KMart gift cards are given to those who make a Bingo, and one lucky Bingo in this game will be worth a \$10,000 KMart card.

Red/O66/YES
Red/O73/YES
Black/N38/YES
Black/G53/YES
Red/I27/YES
Red/G58/NO

At this point, a lady is one number away from a Bingo.

Red/O63/YES
Red/O71/NO

Six new people are closing in on a Bingo.

Red/O61/YES

The number of people who are close to a Bingo DOUBLES to 14.

Black/G51/YES

She has the eight matches. If nobody made a Bingo, the trip's hers....

...NO BINGO MADE!!! She's won a trip Around the World and the KMart gift card!

The white cards will be in play for the next game. Each Bingo is worth a "Kyle XY" DVD, and one Bingo is worth a Royal Caribbean Cruise.

Christina Wakini is our next studio player. She is playing Bingo Crossword. On each turn, she must decide if each ball's number will be higher or lower than the one before it. Each time the player is right, one letter is zapped from the board. Knocking off the whole puzzle (thus requiring at least nine matches) is worth \$50,000 and the cruise. Only one I is in the puzzle The base number is 31, Wakini's age.

Higher/B6/NO/BINGOBNGO
Higher/G55/YES/BIN-OBNGO

Only the IN's are left now, and two new people are closing in on a Bingo.

Lower/I29/YES/--N---N--

One more person is closing in.

Higher/N33/YES/N

Seven people are now close to a Bingo.

Lower/G56/NO/N

At this point, 18 people are close to a Bingo.

Lower/I22/YES/N

As I feared after that, a man gets a Bingo, so she loses. The man in the audience gets the cruise.

The blue cards in this last game are now in play. One lucky Bingo is worth a trip to the NBA Finals, another is worth a trip to the set of "Desperate Housewives", and another is worth \$50,000.

The last studio player is David Van Diver from Nashville, and he's a former pro wrestler! His gimmick was "Gentleman Jim Corbett".

He plays Odd or Even under the title of Money Bags. This is the serial number that was found on the \$100 bill he took from one of the security cards:

1029384701

Even/N37/NO/1029384701
Odd/B1/YES/-02938470-

Even/B4/YES/-0-938-70-
Odd/B3/YES/-0-9-8-70-
Even/G50/YES/---9-8-7--

Eight people are now closing in on a Bingo. He goes on to lose, and the man who made the Bingo in the audience gets \$5,000.
