5/28/2008 Results- Unlucky 7th Day for Larissa?

TPIR: Today's first four are Patricia Pasquale, Joseph Debacco, Angela Gabrides and Pierre Dowles. The first IUFB is a motorcycle.

Patricia: $3,500
Joseph: $3,420
Angela: $3,421
Pierre: $2,850

ARP: $3,199

Pierre from the state of Louisana will walk the Golden Road! Starting with a can of rainbow sprinkles, he can win a digital piano, a sleeper sofa and worth more than $94,000...a Winnebago Vista 32K Motorhome!!! The sprinkles cost 93 cents. Piano setup:

$ _ 6 0

He says $960 and of course is right. Sofa price:

$ 1 , _ 7 9

He says $1,679...of course, he's right! Now, for that motorhome:

$ 9 4 , _ 3 5

He's going with 6 again, making his guess $94,635. If he's right, he's the biggest daytime TPIR winner of the season...
























$ 9 4 , 6 3 5

...NO. It was my guess of $94,135.

Next player is Kalee Taylor and the second IUFB is a selection of beach chairs.

Kalee: $1,500
Patricia: $1,250
Joseph: $1,220
Angela: BUCK

ARP: $810

Angela plays Flip Flop for a barrel sauna. Board:

5254

She flops to $5,245, which sounds right to me...

$ 5 2 4 5

...and it is!

The next person to leave the crowd is Angel Figaroa and the third IUFB is a clock.

Angel: $250
Kalee: $1,000
Patricia: $150 (STUPID BID)
Joseph: $140 (STUPID BID)

ARP: $1,600

Almost by default, Kalee Taylor (whose mom won a car on this show 30 years ago!) plays Grand Game. Today's target is $7.25 and the products are Gold Bond Cream, Hot Pockets, Clorox wipes, Dr. Scholl's Freeze Away, Aspercreme Heat and mouth rinse.

1. Hot Pockets- $2.49
2. Wipes- $5.49
3. Mouth rinse- $7.99

The Dr. Scholl's was the other bad item on the board, even though the other prices weren't revealed. She wins $100.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN:
Kalee ($1,700): 30 + 30 = $.60
Pierre ($5,838): 30 + 45 = $.75
Angela ($6,055): Dime + 90 = WINS $1,000 AND SHOWCASE BERTH!

In Angela's Bonus Spin...60 cents for nothing extra.

The next player to exit the audience is Ysobell Stevens and the fourth IUFB is tailgating equipment.

Ysobell: $600
Patricia: $3,000
Joseph: $800
Angel: $2,000

ARP: $890

Joseph from Cleveland plays One Wrong Price for...

Dinette: $1,238
Ice wagon: $4,105
Golf equipment: $1,170

...I say the ice wagon costs too much and he agrees...$3,428!

The next contestant to "Come on Down" is John and the next IUFB is a table tennis package.

John: $650
Angel: $651 (STUPID BID)
Ysobell: $300
Patricia: $652

ARP: $678

Thanks to that extra buck, Patricia Pasquale, the last of today's first four, will play Range Game for a snowmobile. Range is $7,800-$8,400. She stops at about $8,008-$8,158. I think she went over by a bit...and she did, because it was $7,999.

The last player called down today is Harvey Yall and the final IUFB (Drew mistakenly called it the FIRST IUFB) is a washer/dryer.

Harvey: $3,500 (STAGE WILLY)
John: $1,950
Angel: $2,500
Ysobell: $3,600 (STAGE WILLY)

ARP: $2,598

Angel, a flight attendant, now gets to play Cover Up for a Chevrolet HHR (Std., AT/Remote, EBH). Board:

First number: 1 or 3?
Second number: 4, 8 or 9?
Third number: 0, 2, 8 or 9?
Fourth number: 0, 1, 2, 7 or 8?
Last number: 0, 1, 2, 3, 5 or 6?

This isn't too bad of a setup. First guess is $18,285...first three numbers right. Second is $18,270...the 0 is now right. His final guess is...$18,220 and he totally blew it! It was $18,210. But he does win $1,000 off the Big Wheel and gets into the Showcase. In his Bonus Spin...nothing.

In the first Showcase, we meet a lady named Nessy who's been having a nose problem. First, she tries to cover up her face with a selection of cowboy hats. Second, she tries to avoid those friends that try to take pictures of her face with a new digital camera. Third, Nessy's nose seems to get in the way of her being able to watch her new LCD TV. Finally, she just got a movie role because of her nose, and she decides to show off her nose to everyone while having the top down of her new Chrysler Sebring Convertible (Std., Paint, Lamps)! Believe it or not, Angela passes to Angel.

ANGEL BIDS $23,300 ON SHOWCASE #1- STAGE GARF

Angela goes for a bedroom, luggage and a trip to Italy.

ANGELA BIDS $40,000 ON SHOWCASE #2- WILLY OF THE CENTURY

That means Angel lucks out and wins $35,632 in cash and prizes. Just for the record, here were the Showcase prices:

ANGEL'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $23,300
ARP: $32,034
DIFFERENCE: $8,734

ANGELA'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $40,000
ARP: $18,437
OVER

Family Feud: The Reeves ladies defend their crown for the first time against the Goldsons, led by Rashida and accompanied by Gigi, Suzette, Thomas and Rick.

First question: Things that a wife might not let a husband bring in the house. Starting with:

1.
2. Animals (14, Rashida)
3.
4.
5.
6.
7. Tools (6, Stacey)
8.

The challengers will play. Starting with Gigi, she says cigarette smoke...cigars/cigarettes are #5 (7)! Suzette's first answer is pornography...#4 (9)! Thomas next says a lot of friends...no. Rick is next with another woman...top answer (29)! Back to Rashida, who next says a gun...#3 (9)! Gigi's next response is toys...no. Suzette tries to hold off a steal attempt for now with her next guess of family...STRIKEOUT. The first steal of the day is worth 74 points, and Stacey tries to get those points for her championship team with a guess of dirty shoes...bottom answer (5) for the points! #6 was motorcycle (7).

Second question: Occupations where you get to hear a lot of good gossip. Starting with:

1. Hairdresser (27, Michelle)
2.
3.
4.
5.

The champions will play this time. We start this time with Kathy, who says police officer...no. Jennifer tries to do better with secretary...#4 (10)! Over to Teri, who now says doctor...nope. Stacey then tries to save the team with nail salon...oops. For 37 points, Rashida says teacher...not there either, so the Reeves family goes to 111. Unsaid:

2. Nurse (12)
3. The clergy (10)
5. Reporter (7)

Double: Things you wouldn't need if you were bald. Starting with:

1. Comb/brush (62, Suzette)
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.

The Goldsons will play. Thomas' next answer is hat...no. Rick next says a hair dryer...NO. Rashida tries to fare better with her next guess of hair...INSTANT STRIKEOUT. For another 124, Stacey goes with a haircut...#4 (4) to go to 235! Remaining answers:

2. Shampoo (16)
3. Hairspray (8)
5. Hair gel/cream (4)
6. Barrette/hair tie (3)

Triple: Things Pamela Anderson is known for. Thomas rings in with boobies...NUMBER ONE (63) to give the Goldsons control! Rick's next guess is "Baywatch", which is #2 (17)! Rashida then says porn movies...#3 (10)! Gigi goes for the sweep with the marriage to Kid Rock...no. Suzette says the relationship with Tommy Lee...NO. I thought for sure one of her marriages would be the bottom answer. Thomas has the last chance to sweep with her apperance (s) in Playboy...STRIKEOUT. To win, Stacey says the bottom answer is her tattoo (s)...but it's the fact that she's beautiful (3), so the Goldsons get 270.

Sudden Death: Rick and Teri are asked this:

Name something you might find at a wedding that you might also find at a funeral.

Rick beats Teri to the punch with flowers (69) for the win at 477.

Fast Money: It's just way too much work to extend the winning streak to three days in a row for regular play, as Suzette and Thomas learned, so they settle for $890 today.

WOF: Our teams tonight are James and Peter Vega (in the yellow) from North Hollywood, CA (James is a graduate from St. Mary's College of California with a degree in politics and is going to work in the broadcasting department for a professional football team in the Bay Area), Joel- Steven and Kate Hammond (Kate graduated from Miller Park High School while Joel-Steven is a DJ and a radio artist) and Michelle and Rob DeBuck from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Michelle graduated from USC with a buisness degree).

(Hey James and Joel-Steven, I wish I could have either one of your jobs, because I'm having a VERY hard time coming up with an internship that I need to fulfill in order to graduate from VCU.)

James and Peter get CAP AND GOWN for $1,000 while Kate and Joel-Steven get BUFFALO HERD for $2,000.

Round 1 category is Show Biz and out on the wheel now are a pair of trips to NYC with tickets to "Monty Python's Spamalot" worth $8,446. After Kate and Joel-Steven buy the O's, we have...

_ E _ E _ _ S _ O _

_ O _ _ E R _ _ _ _ S

...they call a $450 N and then a pair of L's for the NYC trips. After a trio of I's, they hit Lose a Turn. Michelle and Rob call a pair of M's for $800, a $300 T, the C's for another $1,600 and solve TELEVISION COMMERCIALS for $2,700.

(Flashback moments from this millennium: Pat's many jokes while looking at the big video screen behind the contestants.)

V8 Jackpot Round category is Same Name. After James and Peter buy the O's, we have...

_ _ _ _ _ _/&/G _ N _/

_ O O L

...I've got the idea. They call an $800 P but call a dud in H. Joel-Steven and Kate call a pair of D's for $1,000 while on Jackpot, both of which are located back-to-back at the top. They then buy three E's and solve KIDDIE & GENE POOL to double their winnings to four grand.

ActivOn Big Money/Prize Puzzle Round category is Food & Drink. In the middle of the round, James and Peter call the T for $300 and the Free Spin. The first word is SHREDDED. James and Peter immediately use it after hitting a Lose a Turn on their next spin. After they call the N for $450, we have...

S H R E D D E D

_ _ _ _ N _ T

...they call a dud in P while on the $3,500 space. Kate and Joel-Steven call the C's for $600 (just missing $7,500 on the Big Money Wedge) and solve SHREDDED COCONUT to add that amount to their total plus a pair of trips to Hawaii, a new total of $14,200 in cash and trips.

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: KS2025647

Michelle and Rob solve COLLEGE ROCK BAND (Kate and Joel-Steven were incorrect with COLLEGE ROAD BAND) to go to $5,700. Next category is On the Map. After a little bit of work, we go to Speed-Up Mode. Consonants are worth $1,900 a pop. Board at this point:

_ E R _ _ E _

P E N N _ _ _ _ _ N _ _

Michelle and Rob are first, calling the S's, and solve HERSHEY PENNSYLVANIA to finish with $12,250. James and Peter get $2,000 and Kate and Joel-Steven hang on for the win at $14,200.

Kate and Joel-Steven spin the next-to-last zero and the category is Thing. Starting with:

_ _ S _ _ _ T _

_ _ T E

They call H, M, K and A and get...

M _ S _ _ _ T _

_ _ T E

...I think it's a DATE...but it wasn't, and they don't come up with much of anything. It was MOSQUITO BITE and they don't win another $30,000. They needed the O's.

Jeopardy!: This is Day #7 for Larissa Kelly, and since she's beaten every sort of record imaginable so far on the show, I want her run to end ASAP. Trying to make that happen tonight are Nan Reiner (an attorney from Alexandria, VA) and Pat Roche (a New York trainer). Opening categories:
