TPIR: Opening players are Susanne Nass, Danny Havas, Dalia Casilias and Wanda Stewart. The first IUFB is a day sailer.
ARP: $3,595, so Stewart goes on a Shopping Spree, where she could win an electric guitar, a sofa, a billards table and dumbbells. Today's target is $5,200. This shouldn't be too difficult. First pick is the guitar, which is $1,869. Second is the sofa, which is $1,125. Final pick is the table, and it's $2,400 for the win!
Next player is Robin Walker and the second IUFB is golf equipment. The winner also gets $40 worth of Os-Cal.
ARP: $2,175, so Walker plays Squeeeeeeeeeze Play for an LCD TV. Board:
My guess was $3,198, while she says $3,598...should've gone with me.
Next player is Eric McKay and the third IUFB is an espresso machine. The winner plays for a car in either Cover Up or Five Price Tags.
ARP: $1,199, so Havas plays Five Price Tags for a Chevy HHR. First item is a snow cone maker marked at $15. I say True and he says False...it's $28, so he's on the board. Second is a CD converter marked at $150 and he says False...I don't think so. Third is a chocolate mill marked at $20 and he says True...but it's $35. Finally, we have a vintage cordless phone marked at $129 and he says False...bad idea. One chance only at the car. The prices:
Does he say $17,795?.....
...NO. We had a win earlier this season with just one chance, but it didn't happen today.
The only winner this half wins $1,000 off the Big Wheel and gets to the Showcase. In her Bonus Spin...nothing else.
Next player is Teresa Lagman and the next IUFB is a washer/dryer.
Susanne: $3,000 (STAGE WILLY)
Eric: $3,001 (STAGE WILLY)
ARP: $2,598, so Casilias plays Switch for a pinball machine marked at $4,595 and a computer system marked at $3,679. She switches...and loses.
Next player is Scott O'Connell and the next IUFB is a model ship.
ARP: $999, meaning Lagman from Toronto will play Cover Up for a Dodge Nitro (Std., AT, Wheels, Heater, Mats). Board:
First number: 2 or 3?
Second number: 2, 7 or 9?
Third number: 3, 5, 6 or 8?
Fourth number: 2, 5, 6, 7 or 9?
Last number: 0, 1, 3, 4, 6 or 8?
First guess is $22,870...third and fourth digits are wrong. Second is $22,590....sorry. It was $22,320.
Next player is Diane Villa and the final IUFB is a cabinet.
Diane: $2,700 (SUICIDE BID)
ARP: $1,027, so Nass is off to the First Four Breakfast Club while O'Connell plays Grand Game. Target is $5.50 and the products are Hot Pockets, NutraMist, V8 juice, Swiss cake rolls, a box of jelly beans and Pine Sol. First pick is the rolls, which are $1.39. Second is the Pine Sol, which is $4.49. Third is the Hot Pockets, which are $2.49. I hope he picks the juice last...and he does, so with a price of $3.15, he wins the ten grand! Dob-stopper!
But the first loser this half gets to the Showcase.
First Showcase has a bedroom, jackets and a snowmobile, and Casilias bids $16,587. Looks like she wants to go for a DSW here. Stewart sees two models trying to break a world record for staying awake the longest. Here are some things to help her out. First, there are loud clangs that are sure to sound from a new grandfather clock. Second, somebody could rev up the motor on a new off-road vehicle. And finally, here's another thing you can rev up- a new Dodge Magnum! Stewart bids $21,000, which is a GARF.
ARP for her: $31,184, a difference of $10,184. ARP for the other lady: $19,074, so she wins and takes home $21,672 in stuff.
WOF: Tonight's players are Cedric Hendricks (in the yellow) from Marina Del-Rey, CA (originally from Rochester, NY; he's an HR recruiter for a bank), Monique Swonestead from Laconia, NH (who is a dietician) and Karie Harris from Salton, WA (who is a fourth-grade teacher).

The first round is tonight's Prize Puzzle Round, and the subject is Thing. Out on the wheel now is a trip to Vegas worth $5,250. After Harris buys the E's, we have...
_ _ T E _ _ _ _ _ _

_ E E L I N G/H _ T/H _ T/H _ T/
_ _ _ G E
...I don't know the last word. He then lands on Jackpot and calls two F's for $1,000, and solves FEELING HOT HOT HOT FUDGE for a $10,950 jackpot and another $2,050, giving him 16 grand!
Big Money Round category is Rock On. After Harris calls the M, we have...
T _ M/_ E T T _/&/THE/H E _ _ T _ _ E _ _ E _ S
...and she solves TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS for $2,550.
Swonestead then solves HANDBALL COURT for $3,000 in spending money for her Mexico trip. Next category is Phrase. After she buys the A's, we have...
A _/A/_ A T T E _/_ _/_ A _ T
...I know it now. After an $800 R, she solves AS A MATTER OF FACT to go to $9,800. Next is an Event. After Harris buys the E's, we have...
S _ I E N _ E
_ E _ O N S T _ _ T I O N
...those E's helped me solve this thing. She calls a $900 D and solves SCIENCE DEMONSTRATION for $3,350 and $5,900 total.
Speed-Up Round category is Rhyme Time and consonants are worth $1,500 a pop. After Harris calls four R's for six large, we have...
_ _ R R _- S _ _ R R _
...no clue. The man calls the C and solves HURRY-SCURRY to seal the match with $17,500! Everybody played very well tonight! Swonestead has $9,800 in cash and trip and Harris has $5,900 to take home.
Let's top off a nice episode with a bonus round win, shall we? He spins the "Ugly Betty" spot (the U) and the category is Phrase. Starting with:
_ _ E R/_ _/_ E _ _
For the third night in a row, I know it already. Hope he does. He calls F, D, C and O and gets...
O _ E R/_ _/_ E _ D
...it's OVER MY HEAD...and after a few tries, he gets it for $45,000! Believe it or not, that's the first time in a long time that's been won from the bonus round wheel! Total: $62,500!
How Much is Enough?: Trying their luck here tonight are Anita (a trauma nurse from Thousand Oaks, CA), Karen (an office worker from West Simsbury, CT), Alexi (a restaurant manager from Drew Carey country- Cleveland, OH) and Jenn (a photographer from Clear Lake, TX).
