TPIR: First players of the week are Kim Goodman, Tammy Cooper, Kevin Cass and Nathan Conyers. The first IUFB is a kayak.

Nathan: $1,700
Kevin: $500
Tammy: $999
Kim: $998 (STUPID BID)

ARP: $1,020, which means since Goodman went $1 the wrong way on her bid, Cooper will instead play One Wrong Price for a drum set marked at $1,464, a crib marked at $2,369 and a Dale Earnhardt, Jr. pinball machine marked at $3,359. I say the drum set should be more expensive and she says the crib is wrong instead...I don't think so. We were both wrong- the pinball machine was actually $5,995.

Next player is Marlena Meade and the second IUFB is a wine server cart.

Marlena: $450
Kim: $478
Nathan: $700
Kevin: $701

ARP: $800, so Cass plays Pathfinder for a Dodge Avenger (Std., Sport, Mouldings, Stereo, Mats, Sound, Conv.). Board:

08345
36921
48214
73083
18560

This playing shouldn't be too difficult. First number is 2. He gets off to a bad start by saying 8 as the second number in the price of the car. He then chooses the chrome faucet, which is either $78 or $106. He says $106...too much. Next is the candy dispenser, which is either $33 or $51. He says $33...correct. He then gets 1 as the second number in the price of the car. He then steps to 8 as the middle number, which is incorrect. He must get the TV price right to keep going. It's either $100 or $126. He says $126...game over. ARP of the car: $21,430. He beat himself today.

Next player is Linnzy Burke and the third IUFB is a pair of surfboards. The winner also gets $40 worth of Gold Bond skin cream.

Linnzy: $725
Marlena: $1,500
Kim: $1,350
Nathan: $1,200

ARP: $1,000, so Burke will play Coming or Going for a GEM car. If she comes, the price would be $7,995. If she goes, the price would be $5,997. Does she say $7,995...no.

The only male player this half gets to the Showcase, where he's hoping he gets another chance at a car there.

Next player is Juanita Jones and the fourth IUFB is luggage.

Juanita: $795
Marlena: $450
Kim: $1,100
Nathan: $451

ARP: $970, so this Double J will play the season's third playing of Make Your Mark for a punch set, a home gym and an air hockey game. Choices:

$925
$1,575
$2,000
$2,599

My guesses are $925, $1,575 and $2,599, and she agrees with me. Believe it or not, the game only costs $925. The punch set costs $1,575. For $500 and the prizes, the gym is...$2,599!

Next to "Come on Down" is Lynette Burks and the next IUFB is a pair of mountain bikes. The winner also gets $40 worth of Icy Hot PM lotion.

Lynette: $999
Marlena: $1,200
Kim: $1,100
Nathan: BUCK

ARP: $795, so the second man called down from the audience today will play Lucky Seven for a Pontiac Vibe (Std., AT, Prots, ALB, Cargo). First number is 1. His second number guess is 7...

$ 1 9, _ _ _

...$2 gone. Middle number guess is 5...

$ 1 9, 5 _ _

...right! Fourth number guess is 4...

$ 1 9, 5 7 _

...he's down to $2. Last number guess is 3...

$ 1 9, 5 7 1

...he just missed it. If only he had gone high enough on the fourth digit.

The last player is Ronald Handley and the final IUFB is a CD collection.

Ronald: $400 (SUICIDE BID)
Lynette: $525
Marlena: $350 (SUICIDE BID)
Kim: $401

ARP: $664, so Goodman is off to the First Four Breakfast Club while Lynette plays Pick a Pair for a dining room worth $6,037. Products today are V8, Alka-Seltzer, AZO, Citracal chocolate bites, trash bags and green tea. First pick is the V8, which is $3.15. She then says the green tea is $3.15...it is!

SSD2: The only loser this half spins 20...and a nickel for a quarter total. JJ spins a nickel...and a quarter for 30 cents total. The big winner so far today spins 15...and 75 to go to the Showcase and probably go for a car!

The first showcase is outdoor-themed, and it contains a BBQ, a spa, and a Hi-Lo trailer. The man bids 30 grand, which doesn't sound too bad of a bid. Lynette goes for a living room, a camcorder and a trip to Portugal. No car here today. Anyway, she bids $16,777.

ARP for her: $20,466, a difference of $3,689. Last three digits of the man's showcase...

$ _ _ , 9 8 1

...the first digit...

$ 3 _ , 9 8 1

...and that important second digit is...









$ 3 8 , 9 8 1

...ouch. That spa cost a ton, apparently. He never would've won- the highest bid he was thinking was $35K. Both Showcase were on Dob-oids today. In any event, he leaves with parting gifts while Lynette wins today with $27,167.

Temptation: Our current champion is Pamela, who has $236 in her bank account after Day 1. So far, she's won $1,150 in prizes. Today, she's facing JC and Allyson. After the first Speed Round...

Pamela: $34
JC: $50
Allyson: $39

...JC is given a chance at $500 in Instant Ca$h...and he goes for it. He chooses the brown wallet...no $500. It was in the white one. After the last Speed Round...

...DEAL! His case had...$750,000, so he committed a GARF OF THE CENTURY. And just imagine would would've happened had he continued on:

#2- $10,000 (Offer: $450,000)
#24- $500 (Final offer: $687,000)

OUCH. The remainder of the playout really hurts!

Before the third offer is revealed, the player is given a challenge. Three dishes are presented, each marked $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000. Whatever food is revealed is what he must eat and swallow a bite of. If successful, the dollar amount for that food is added to the new offer. He chooses the $10K food.

$1K- Chicken feet
$5K- Fish heads

What he must eat a piece of...duck embryos!

Hook next chooses #13...STRIKE ONE- $300,000. Next offer: $165,000...NO DEAL.

Natalie is tonight's model winner.

He then chooses #18...BIG STRIKE TWO- ONE MILLION DOLLARS. The offer sinks to $54,000...NO DEAL. Next selection is #1...$50! New offer: $71,000...DEAL! But he misses out on the $200,000, so he GARFED as well. Had he gone on with #26, he would've knocked out $25 and likely have taken the final offer of $110,000.
