TPIR: Robert O' Damah, Sherri Johnson, Gonzalo Gonzalez and Raymond Diero start off Contestant's Row today. Opening the IUFBs is a pool table.

Raymond: $3,100
Gonzalo: $1,200
Sherri: $785
Robert: $1,201

ARP: $2,800, so O' Damah from the University of Florida is walking the Golden Road! At stake is a tea set, a set of guitars for girls and, worth more than $98,000, a Winnebago Sightseer Motorhome (Std., Seats, Monitor, TV, Shades, Interior)!!! We start off with a 92 cent price for the snack sticks. Here's the setup for the tea set...

$ _ 5 0

...he chooses the 9 and of course is right! Now, for the guitars...

$ 1, _ 7 6

...I'm not sure, but I think the 5 is the middle digit. He agrees with me....

$ 1, 5 7 6

...NO! He should've chosen the 9 again, because the ARP was $1,976! Those guitars costed more than I thought!

The next player is Geraldine Sprouse and the second IUFB is a wine cooler. The winner also gets a $40 supply of Clorox wipes.

Geraldine: $490
Raymond: $850
Gonzalo: $900
Sherri: $1,200

ARP: $999, so Gonzalez will play Danger Price for a home theater system, luggage, a baby's crib and power tools. The Danger Price this time is $1,597. His first pick is the luggage, which is $820. The second pick is the tools, which are $1,140. He finally picks the speakers....sorry. The crib was $2,049.

Next is Patricia Kelly and the third IUFB is camera equipment.

Patricia: $1,200
Sherri: $800
Geraldine: $500
Raymond: $950

ARP: $1,500, giving Kelly the chance to play Magic Number for a sofa and a mini sailboat. She sets her number at $1,516. The boat is $3,195, and the sofa's ARP...$1,801.

The Golden Road player gets to the Showcase.

Victor: $1,600
Sherri: $2,500
Geraldine: $750
Raymond: $1,800

ARP: $1,199, meaning Sprouse plays Double Prices for a trip to Vegas, and Wayne Newton shows up! How about that! It's either $1,921 or $2,500. She says $1,921....NO FREAKIN' WAY.

Next is Britney Castillo and the next IUFB is a home gym.

Britney: $2,200
Raymond: $1,500
Victor: $2,600
Sherri: $1,300

All are over.

Britney: $1,100
Raymond: $999
Victor: $550
Sherri: $1,000

ARP: $878, giving Mercado the chance to play Any Number for ski equipment or a Ford Ranger (Std., AC, Stereo, Tilt/Cruise). The car plug given on the show was incorrect. Anyway, the first number in the price of the truck is 1. His first pick is 8...middle number of the skiing stuff
($ _ 8 _). Second pick is 7...last number of the skiing stuff ($ _ 8 7). Third pick is 5...last number of the truck ($ 1 _, _ _ 5). Fourth pick is 6...that's the second number of the truck
($ 1 6, _ _ 5). Fifth selection is 4....fourth number of the truck
($ 1 6, _ 4 5)! His sixth pick is 9, and I groaned...because that completes the skiing price ($ 9 8 7). The truck was $16,245 and the piggy bank had $3.01 in it today.

The last player is Carla Lees and the final IUFB is a ceiling fan light.

Carla: $439
Sherri: $495
Britney: $550
Raymond: $400

ARP: $2,080, giving Castillo the chance to break today's drought by playing Now or Then for a trip to Bangkok worth $7,600. Then today is September 1996. The products today are Cascade, Capri Sun, tweezers, Oxi Clean, sleeping aid and NutraMist. Her first pick is the drinks, marked at $2.29, and she says THEN...NO WAY. Second pick is the tweezers, marked at $9.99, and she says THEN...but that's NOW. Third pick is the Cascade, marked at $3.09, and she says NOW...THEN. She must get the remaining products right or we will have been skunked. First up is the spray, marked at $7.99, and she says NOW...right. Second is the snoring aid, marked at $1.99, and she says THEN....NO, so for the first time in the Drew Carey era, we have a WINLESS SHOW. Too bad.

The other car game player gets to the Showcase.

The first Showcase features Desdemonia the Delusional Decorator. First, she says instead of having a sofa in your house, have a new raft. Second, according to her, dump all of your artwork for a new motorcycle. Finally, she makes sure that some people make tire tracks all over your house's floor by having somebody driving into your house a new Pontiac Grand Prix (Std., Stereo). The Florida student PASSES this to Mercado, who bids $28,000. For the student, we have Sherri's Berries, a dining room and a spa, and he bids 17 grand.

ARP for the student: $16,910, so he's over. Don't tell me the dubious history from a February 2006 show is going to happen here. ARP for Mercado........


















....$28,243, meaning not only has he stopped today's skid, he is a DOUBLE SHOWCASE WINNER!!!! He takes home $47,018!

Family Feud: Back for their second time is the Laugherty family, and they're facing the Krauses today. The challengers are led by Michelle, and she's with Alana, Julie, Lee and Jeff.

The Krause clan will play. Alana starts things off with answering the phone...NO. Julie says lay out the clothes...#3 (9)! Lee is next with serving food...#2 (31)! Next is Jeff with a guess of turning down the bed...no. We then go back to Michelle, who says driving people around...three strikes.

Greg's next guess is "Stop hangng out with your friends"....NO WAY. James is back with "Can you turn the TV off?"...three strikes for them.

WOF: It's "Holiday Movie Magic" week! Last season during this week, the $100,000 was won for the first time that season. Will history repeat itself this week? Let's find out.

Tonight's players are Ann Rombo (in the blue) from Boston, NY (who wants to be a stand-up comic), Jacob Almero from L.A. (originally from Michigan; he's a chemical engineer) and Jaime Staggs from Scotsdale, AZ (who is a marketer for a local grocery chain).

The future comic gets BOX OFFICE HITS for $1,000, while the only male player tonight gets PRINCE CHARMING for $2,000.

Round 1 category is People (not the magazine category) and out on the wheel now is a trip to London worth $5,500 (inspired by the movie "The Golden Compass"). The expanded $2,500 wedge is not available this week. Early on, Staggs calls an N for the Free Spin and $300. After she calls the L's, we have...

L _ A D _ _ S/AND/_ _ L L _ _ _ _ S

...she then buys the I, but that's a dud, so she uses her Free Spin. After she then calls two R's for $600, we now have...

L _ A D _ R S/AND/_ _ L L _ _ _ R S

...I know this. After buying the E's, she solves LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS to get on the board with $4,750.

(Flashback moment from 2002: A misprinted image of Pat Sajak's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is shown at the end of an episode.)

Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round category is Event. At the start, the winner of the last round picks up the 25 wedge prize- 25 months of movie rentals from Blockbuster and a DVD player, worth $1,000. After she buys the E's later, we have...

E _ _ L _ R I N G/AN/E _ _ I T I N G/N E _/

_ I T _

...I don't have a clue. She calls two C's for $1,200 and says EXPLORING AN EXCITING NEW CITY...she's going to be doing just that soon, as she just won a trip to Buenos Aires! She also wins $4,900 and the Blockbuster prize, for a new total of $17,150!

Big Money Round category is Same Name. Staggs calls some N's while on the Big Money Wedge early on for $5,000! She then calls the S's next for the Wild Card. After the man buys the A's, we have...

_ A M E S/&

S A _ _ N _ S

_ _ N D

...I've got it. He calls a $700 J and a $600 B, and then solves JAMES & SAVINGS BOND for $2,250 and $4,250 total.

Staggs then solves CARLSBAD CAVERNS to go to $20,150. Next category is Phrase. Sadly, she loses her Wild Card to a Bankrupt early on. Soon into the round, we go to Speed-Up Mode with consonants being worth $1,600 a pop. After she calls the N, we have...

_ T/_ _ _ _ S/_/_ _ T/_ _/S _ N S _

...I know it now, but she doesn't. The other lady calls the L but can't solve either. The man calls the M and solves IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE to finish with $6,750. Rombo leaves with $1,000 while Staggs is off to Bonusland with $20,150!

Cars this week are a Jeep and a BMW Z4 Convertible. She spins the O in BONUS and the category is Place. Starting with:

_ _ N _

_ _ _ L T

I know it already. Staggs calls G, H, C and A and gets...

_ A N _

_ A _ L T

...is it enough to solve BANK VAULT...YES, with a second left! And she'll be taking $35,000 from this show's bank vault, for a total of $55,150 in cash and prizes!

At the end of the show, clips from the 25th Anniversary Party held in, I do believe, NYC, were shown.
