TPIR 7/14

Only four shows left in The Dob’s tenure.

Today’s first four are Jaron Goodson, Sheila Dombroski, Dorothy Davis and Jeremy Perry. The first IUFB is a drum set (Shane).

Jeremy: $1,350
Dorothy: $1,000
Shiela: $1,650
Jaron: $1,351 (he originally wanted to bid $1,651)

ARP: $3,790, so had Jaron stuck with $1,651, he would’ve won.

Instead, it’ll be Sheila getting the season’s last playing of Five Price Tags, and she’s playing it for a Dodge Grand Caravan (Phire). The choices for it:

$18,773
$20,104
$22,525
$19,621
$23,572

The price tags are brought out by Shane. If she gets at least two of the small items correct, she should win this van no problem.

The first one is a set of headphones marked at $40 (Amber) and she says False…True. I could’ve sworn they were at least $100. Second is a can opener (Phire) marked at $31 and she tries False again…$18, so she’s on the board. Third is an electronic grocery list organizer (Amber) with a wrong price of $163 and she says False…sure enough, it’s just $132. Finally is a universal wireless key system (Phire) with an incorrect price of $12 and she sticks with False…$38.

With three picks, I guaran-damn-tee she’ll win this van. She’s wrong at $19,621 first. Her second guess is $18,773 and she’s wrong again. Her final guess is…$22,525 and she wins! She gave yours truly and the audience a heart attack here!

Coming on down next is Andrew Minilla (obviously not from Manila, Philippines) and the second IUFB is a bookcase (Amber).

Andrew: $2,200
Jaron: $950
Jeremy: $1,450
Dorothy: $2,250

ARP: $1,100

Will Jaron have as much luck as that lady who won over $90K on an MDS with that same last name? We’ll find out at least while playing It’s In the Bag (the $16K sign and products are shown off by Shane and Phire). The products today are Freeze Away, banana nut muffins, pineapple slices, Icy-Hot lotiion, eye drops and a small can of Pringles. Here are his guesses:

$.79 - Pringles
$13.99- Freeze Away
$1.79- Pineapple slices
$3.39- Muffins
$7.99- Eye drops

He’s right about the chips and the Freeze Away. I got worried when we went on with the pineapple slices…but he’s right about them for $4,000! He then goes on with the muffins at $3.39...sure enough, he now has $8,000! Now, for the $16K bag. When he placed the eye drops there, the audience didn’t like it. He decides to go with the audience and bail out at $8,000. Was the audience right…yup, the Icy-Hot was in the last bag instead!

Lizeth Espinoza now comes on down and the third IUFB is a Crosley jukebox (Amber). We may have a new daytime IUFB record with this prize.

Lizeth: $2,100
Jeremy: $2,500
Dorothy: $2,700
Andrew: BUCK

ARP: $1,496, so this must’ve been one cheap jukebox.

And that one buck bid by Andrew Minilla (hailing from Roland Heights, CA) means he’ll play Magic Number for dinnerware (Shane) and a Stairmaster (Phire). He sets his Magic Number at $1,549. The Stairmaster is $2,579...but the dinnerware is just $1,643.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Andrew ($1,496): 60 + 35 = $.95
Jaron ($9,100): 10 + 75 = $.85
Sheila ($26,503): 45 + 35 = $.80

Andrew will try to do much better in today’s Showcase.

Rich then yells the magic words to Kathrine Pool and the fourth IUFB is a laptop (Phire).

Kathrine: $2,150
Lizeth: $1,400
Jeremy: $2,300
Dorothy: $800

ARP: $1,499

Lizeth Espinoza from Chula Vista, CA plays Coming or Going for a bed (Amber). If she’s Coming, her guess would be $4,397. If she’s Going, she would be guessing $7,934 for the bed. She comes to $4,397 and wins!

The next “Come on Down” announcement goes to Aliyah Brown and the fifth IUFB is a lawn mower and hedger (Shane).

Aliyah: $1,100
Jeremy: $1,550
Dorothy: $1,200
Kathrine: $750

ARP: $1,243

Dorothy Davis, who’s been a teacher for 42 years, plays Cover Up for a Dodge Avenger (Std., Sport, Stereo, Mouldings, Mats, Video)(Amber). Board:

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

It’s possible we may get an EXACTA here today. Her first guess is…$21,805, so she has the last two numbers wrong. Second guess is $21,820 and she now has the 0 right. Her final guess is $21,830 and she wins! She played this pretty good.

Teresita Javier is the last one to enter Contestant’s Row on the day and the final IUFB is a wall clock (Amber and Phire).

Teresita: $450
Katherine: $900
Aliah: $999
Jeremy: $1,000

ARP: $613, so Jeremy goes to the First Four Breakfast Club.

Teresita meanwhile plays Double Prices for a pair of motorcycles (Shane). They’re either $6,698 or $5,103. Does she choose $6,698 for the win…yes!

Save for It’s In the Bag and Magic Number, Roger’s in the generous spirit today.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Lizeth ($5,896): 60 + 20 = $.80
Teresita ($7,311): 50 + 30 (plus one DUD spin)= $.80
Dorothy ($23,073): WINS $1,000 AND SHOWCASE BERTH!

In Dorothy’s Bonus Spin…only 45 cents.

The first Showcase has Phire playing a character called Junkyard Julie. First, she spots a pot that she could use as a helmet while riding her new bike (Shane). Second, she finds a rusty chain, which she can wear as a special piece of jewelry on her trip to NYC (Shane). Finally, she finds lots of Styrofoam bricks, which she can use as a substitute for a life vest in the event she falls from her new Reinell 18” ski boat (Amber)! Dorothy goes for it.

DOROTHY BIDS $22,000 ON TRIP/BOAT SHOWCASE

MY BID FOR TRIP/BOAT SHOWCASE: $23,500

For Andrew, we have a living room, a gemstone globe (Shane) and a trip to Hong Kong (Amber).

ANDREW BIDS $14,750 ON ROOM/TRIP SHOWCASE

MY BID FOR ROOM TRIP SHOWCASE: $16,000

ANDREW’S SHOWCASE:

ARP: $18,260
DIFFERENCE: $3,510

DOROTHY’S SHOWCASE:
BID: $22,000
ARP: $26,947
DIFFERENCE: $4,947- LOSS

Andrew wins his Showcase and $19,756 in prizes while Dorothy leaves with $24,073 in cash and prizes.

Neither one is today’s top winner though; Sheila is with $26,503 in stuff including a new van.
