De Rynn: $52
Shamarrah: $66
Cynthia: $52

...Shamarrah is offered a chance at $1,500 in Instant Ca$h. She declines...and would've won the $1,500 had she gone on with the brown wallet. After the last Speed Round...

De Rynn: $72
Shamarrah: $76
Cynthia: $82

...Cynthia becomes the new champion, which means despite being on for three days, De Rynn leaves with nothing! Ouch. At least she has her pride. Shamarrah leaves with $1,587 in cash and prizes.

She then gets $100 from Super Knock Off and will return tomorrow.

TPIR: Today's first four players are Lacey Ward, Troy Guthery, Gina and Shelley Rands. The first IUFB is a computer system.

Shelley: $1,100
Gina: $1,200
Troy: $1,550
Lacey: $1,299

ARP: $1,927, so the first man called today will play Range Game for a spa. Range is $6,400-$7,000. He stops at $6,566 to $6,716. ARP: $6,713, so he's the first winner of the day.

Next is Kelly Beardmore (who went the wrong way when she got to Contestant's Row!) and the second IUFB is a wall clock. The winner also gets a $40 supply of Slow-Mag supplement.

Kelly: $350
Lacey: $500
Shelley: $800
Gina: $501

ARP: $613, so Gina from Gilroy, CA plays the Punchboard. First item is a lamp marked at $80 and she says lower...but it's $100. Second is a toaster oven marked at $40 and she says higher...$50. Third is a fondue kit marked at $120 and she says lower...but it's $150. Finally, we have headphones marked at $90 and she says higher...$79! Ouch. She only gets one punch on the board, unless a second chance pops up. She punches out hole #17...and wins $100.

Next is Leone Hartaman and the third IUFB is a collection of kids furniture and books.

Leone: $760
Kelly: $650
Lacey: $751
Shelley: BUCK

ARP: $1,055, so Leone plays Any Number for crystal stemware or a Ford Mustang. First number in the car price is 2. First pick is 7, and the piggy bank's worth at least $7 today. Second pick is 6, which is the middle number of the car ($ 2 _ , 6 _ _). Third pick is 4...that's the last number of the stemware. Fourth pick is 3, which is the second number of the piggy bank ($ 7. 3 _). Fifth pick is 9, the last number of the car
($ 2 _ , 6 _ 9). Sixth pick is 5...that stemware costs $500+ today. Seventh pick is 1, the second number of the car ($ 2 1, 6 _ 9). I hope she says 8 last...and she does, meaning she wins the $21,689 Mustang! The stemware was $504 and the piggy bank had $7.32 in it today.

SSD1: The only real loser this half spins 80 cents. The man spins 65...and 35 for $1,000! The big winner can't match it, so he's in the Showcase. The man's Bonus Spin nets him...nothing else.

Next player is Jordan Sanchez and the next IUFB is backpacking equipment. The winner also gets $40 worth of Garlique.

Jordan: $500
Kelly: $650
Lacey: $651
Shelley: $652

ARP: $893, so Rands will play Hi-Lo for a bedroom worth $6,314. Products today are skin cream, Clorox wipes, hearing aid, air freshener, V8 juice and Aspercreme patches. First pick is the patches, worth $8.95. Second pick is the cream, which is $3.88. Final pick is the hearing aid, which is $6.99. The juice is $3.15, the wipes are $2.99 and the air freshener is...$5.49.

Next player is Michael Caldwell and the next IUFB is a freezer. $40 worth of freezer bags also goes to the winner.

Michael: $1,295
Jordan: $1,300
Kelly: $999
Lacey: $1,201

ARP: $1,049, so Beardmore will take a stoll to Barker's Bargain Bar and try to win a sofa marked at $1,005 and an off-road vehicle marked at $1,899. I say the vehicle is the bigger bargain and she agrees. ARP of the sofa: $1,605. ARP for the vehicle: $2,199, so she gets screwed by a cheap vehicle!

The last player to leave the audience today is Carol Barrett and the final IUFB is a game table. The winner goes for a car.

Carol: $595
Lacey: $750
Michael: $625
Jordan: BUCK

ARP: $600, so Ward goes to the First Four Breakfast Club while Barrett plays Dice Game for a Pontiac G6. First number is 2. She first rolls a 6 and is wrong, but it's a freebie. It's 1. Her third number roll is 5, which is wrong, but she says lower and is halfway home. For the fourth number, she rolls a 3 and says higher. Her last number roll is a 4, which is wrong, and she says higher, hoping it's a 6. ARP: 21 thousand, two hundred, fifty...one. Shouldn't have gone against the odds at the end. But she does get to the Showcase.

The first Showcase is about home improvements. First, turn that wreck room into a useful home gym by using boxing equipment. Second, update your family room with a new plasma TV. Finally, while the rest of your house is redecorated, head out on an Oriental Cruise. She bids $17,500. For the man, we have a karaoke sound system, a trip to Alaska and a Reinell 20" ski boat, and he bids $27,550.

ARP for her: $16,687, so she's over and leaves with parting gifts. ARP for him: 27 thousand...
