9/30/2008 Results

TPIR: Episode 4453K begins with Cari, Michelle, Sharken and Amy. The first IUFB is surfing/bodyboarding equipment (Rachael).

Amy: $650
Sharken: $699
Michelle: $500
Cari: $380 (STAGE GARF)

ARP: $1,096

Sharken Arriaga will try to chomp up a floor clock, a cotton candy machine (Brandi), a guitar and a fireplace (Tamiko) in Shopping Spree (Drew again makes the mistake of saying that just two/three prizes will be offered in similar games like this). Today's target is $3,700.

1. Guitar- $699 ($3,001)
2. Clock- $1,535 ($1,466)
3. Cotton candy machine- $1,408 (LOSS)

The fireplace was $1,300.

Coming on down fifth is Irene and the second IUFB is a ceiling fan (Brandi).

Irene: $995
Michelle: $615
Cari: $700
Amy: BUCK

ARP: $1,671

Irene Sherry, one of the first fans of Drew's "Alakazam" from Roseville, CA, plays the Grand Game. Target today is $8 and the products are Ziploc bags, Ester-C, Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion, Aspercreme Heat, dog food and SnoreStop.

1. Ziploc bags- $2.99 ($10)
2. SnoreStop- $4.99 ($100)
3. Aspercreme- $6.79 ($1,000)

She should know that the dog food is less at $4.49...but she chooses the Ester-C at $15.99 instead, so no cash here for her. The lotion was $9.15.

Brettany is next to enter Contestant's Row and the third IUFB is a picnic table (Tamiko).

Brettany: $999
Michelle: $600
Cari: $525
Amy: $1,000

ARP: $999, meaning Brettany Smith has the season's first $500 Perfect Bid!

It also means she'll play Spelling Bee for a Honda Civic (Rachael). Her freebies are #7 and #11.

1. Football grill
BID: $25
ARP: $40- NO

2. Cutting board
BID: $35
ARP: $25- PICKS #23

3. Pedometer
BID: $45
ARP: $40- PICKS #12

Drew almost didn't give her a chance to bailout with $4,000 before showing the first card, but she goes for it anyway. Maybe he shouldn't have offered the bailout at all- the first card reads CAR! She had an A and two C's the rest of the way out.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Sharken ($1,096): $.70
Irene ($1,671): 15 + 40 = $.55
Brettany ($19,959): $.85

For the second straight day, a Honda winner makes the Showcase!

Next to "Come on Down" is Jose and the fourth IUFB is a chair/ottoman (Rachael).

Jose: $975
Michelle: $1,100
Cari: $1,150
Amy: $1,200

ARP: $1,642

Amy Woods, who will attend college starting this fall to try and become a doctor, plays Flip Flop for a pair of motorcycles (Brandi & Tamiko; when the game spun around, the wall got stuck!). Board:

7889

She flips...but that's it, so she loses with a guess of $8,789, because that breaks the rule of having an even number be the last number in the price of a pair of something. ARP: $8,798. She hit the button herself in the final reveal.

Sherry then comes on down and the fifth IUFB is a set of digital cameras (Rachael & Tamiko).

Sherry: $625
Jose: $1,250
Michelle: $475
Cari: $500

ARP: $780

Sherry Huff, after she gets that final checkmark on her shirt from Drew on her life dreams shirt, will have the chance to huff to a Honda Accord Sedan (Std., AT, Mats)(Tamiko), but only if she wins Any Number. Also up for grabs in this game is crystal stemware (Brandi). First number in this Honda is 2.

1. 4- Stemware ($ _ _ 4)
2. 6- Pricey Ziffel ($ _ . 6 _)
3. 5- Stemware ($ 5 _ 4)
4. 8- Pricey Ziffel ($ 8. 6 _)
5. 3- CAR ($ 2 _ , _ 3 _)
6. 9- CAR ($ 2 _ , 9 3 _)
7. 7- CAR ($ 2 _ , 9 3 7)
Final pick: 2- LOSS (Wins $8.62)

The car was $21,937 and the stemware was $504. The bad news is that she fell just short of pulling off a great Any Number comeback. The good news- she already has three cars at her house.

Coming on down last is Michelle and the final IUFB is luggage (Brandi).

Michelle C.: $500
Jose: $725
Michelle T.: $800
Cari: $801

ARP: $980, meaning Michelle Turner is the season's fourth member of the First Four Breakfast Club while Cari Castle escapes it.

She now plays Coming or Going for a trip to Scottsdale, AZ (Rachael & Tamiko). If she's Coming, her guess would be $5,316. If she's Going, her guess would be $6,135. In the end, she's Coming...to Arizona!

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Sherry ($789): Quarter + 30 = $.55
Amy ($1,642): $.80
Cari ($6,296): 50 + 70 = OVER

Dr. Amy's in the Showcase.

The first Showcase has the models very tired. First, because of Brandi being so sleepy, she let the liquids of her cooking overflow on her new range. Second, Tamiko's worn out over working out too much with her new home gym. Finally, Rachael's caught sleeping while sailing with a new Sanibel sailboat!

AMY BIDS $27,000 ON BOAT SHOWCASE

MY BID FOR BOAT SHOWCASE: $29,250

For Brettany, we have an Ashley living room, a wireless reading device (Brandi) and a trip to Australia (Rachael).

BRETTANY BIDS $17,000 ON ROOM/TRIP SHOWCASE

MY BID FOR ROOM/TRIP SHOWCASE: $21,100

DIFFERENCE: $770

AMY'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $27,000
ARP: $27,474
DIFFERENCE: $474- WINS BY $296!!

Two great Showcase bids today, but it's Dr. Woods who wins with $29,116 in prizes!

WOF: Tonight's first Toss-Up category is Occupation:

T A X _

_ _ _ _ _ R

Lindsey solves TAXI DRIVER for $1,000. Our players this time out:

Lindsey Waitzman (Vernon Hills, IL)- Genetic counselor
Denene Salsbury (Kona, HI)- Property manager
Chad Coates (Diamond Head, MI)- Stay-at-home dad/computer technician

Toss-Up #2 category is Food & Drink:

_ _ _/_ _ _ _ E/

_ U N D _ _

Lindsey solves HOT FUDGE SUNDAE to add another $2,000 and control.

Round 1 is tonight's Prize Puzzle Round and the category for it is Fun & Games. Out on the wheel now is an Alaskan Cruise worth $6,298. Lindsey starts out by calling three N's for $900 and the Free Spin. After she buys the A's and I's, we have...

_ _ I N G I N G/A _/A/

_ I N A _ A

...she calls a pair of T's for another $600 and solves SWINGING AT A PINATA for another $2,600 and a trip to Ixtapa, Mexico, a total of $10,970 in cash and trip.

NO DUDS OR BANKRUPTS THIS ROUND

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: KS07435

Eggland's Best Jackpot Round category is Landmark. After Denene duds out with a U purchase, we have Chad in control with this showing:

THE/A _ _ _ _ _/THEATER/_ _/

H A R _ E _

He calls a dud consonant in F. Lindsey calls a $400 N and buys the I, then calls the L's for another $10,500 and solves THE APOLLO THEATER IN HARLEM for another $10,650 and $21,620 total!

DUDS: F, U (don't quit your day job, John Cena!)

Meinee $10,000 Mystery Round category is Same Name. Chad starts out with a call of R for his friends back in Tampa, but it's a dud! Lindsey calls the T's for $800 but then hits the night's first Bankrupt, so she uses her Free Spin. She then calls a pair of S's for the Wild Card, but then loses it right back to one of the Bankrupts on the Million Dollar Wedge. Denene then hits a Mystery Wedge and calls an L. She flips...another Bankrupt this round. Chad then calls a $3,500 P and we have...

_ _ L _/&/S _ _ _ T/

S P _ T

...I'm not sure about the first word. After a $450 D, he calls a dud in C, getting rid of my guess of COLD & SWEET SPOT. Back to Lindsey, she calls a $3,500 B, then buys the A and the O, but then calls a dud in H. Denene strikes out with G. Chad then buys the E's and solves BALD & SWEET SPOT for $3,700.

DUDS: C, G, H, R
BANKRUPTS: 3 (2 by Lindsey, 1 by Denene)

$3,000 Toss-Up category is Around the House:

D R _ P

C _ I L _ _ G

Chad solves DROP CEILING for another $3,000 and $6,700 total. Next category is Place, and he starts the round with Lose a Turn. Later, Lindsey buys the O's and we have...

_ O _

O _ _ _ _ _ N C _

S C _ O O L

...I've got this. After a $300 H, she buys the E's and solves DOG OBEDIENCE SCHOOL to go to $22,620!

DUDS: A, R, T

Speed-Up Round category is Things after a little work by Lindsey and consonants are worth $1,900 apiece. After Chad calls the R's...

N _ _ _ E _ S/D _ _ E S/AND/

_ _ A R T E R S

...they're all types of coins and he gets it, NICKELS, DIMES AND QUARTERS for another $3,800 and a final total of $10,500! Denene has the $1,000 consolation check and Lindsey is our champion with $22,620!

Big Money Round: Lindsey's a decent player; let's see if she can keep it up here. She spins the E in AMERICA'S and the category is Thing. Starting with:

_ _ _ T/_ _/_ _ R N _ S _

I think the last word is FURNISH. She calls C, D, H and A and gets...

C _ A T/_ _/_ A R N _ S H

...she guesses COAT OF VARNISH...RIGHT! I thought it was COAT OF GARNISH instead! That wins her another $30,000 and $52,620 total! Andy, you can now put that shutout worry to bed!

(Note: For the first time in a while, we got full-screen credits of the prize manufacturers.)

Jeopardy!: For Wes Pierce's first title defense, she will face:

"Who is Horace Greeley?"...is right to go to four grand! At the end of the round, Perlmutter has $6,400, with the champ trailing her by a grand. Saxe's up to $2,800.

ROUND 1 LACH TRASH: $1,800

DJ! Categories:

GOOD "P.R."

Thanks largely to the Stock Symbol Shopping category, Pierce's the first to break five figures. He then gets everything but the $400 "P.R." clue to go to $16,600! But it's Perlmutter who finds the round's first Daily Double under the $1,600 Bible Bros. clue with $8,400. Saxe has $3,600. Her wager is five grand:

This Biblical patriarch's brothers were Haran and Nahor and he was lot's uncle.

"Who is Abraham?"...IS RIGHT to jump to $13,400! She then gets the $2,000 clue in that category to go to $15,400 with all of this still in play:

Medicine & History: ALL
3 or More Wives: $1,600 & $2,000
Face Book: $800-$2,000

Tova: "Who is Yeltzin?"- RIGHT AGAIN ($17,000); $1,600 MEDICINE & HISTORY CLUE

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIILLLLLLYYYY DOUBLE #2! $3,000 is her wager. For 20 grand and the lead:

Generations of inbreeding doomed this dynasty in Spain as Charles II was both witless & childless.

"What is Habsburg?"...THAT'S IT FOR $20,000 AND THE LEAD!

$2,000 MEDICINE & HISTORY CLUE:

Tova: $20,000

Wes: $19,800

MATT:
Response: NOTHING
Wager: $2,000
Final score: $2,800

The champ wrote down "What is Yemen?"...








"What is Yemen?"

...NO. But it only costs him $201, so he's at $19,599. Perlmutter's response was nothing. Correct: What is Saudi Arabia? Her wager was...














...$19,601, so she drops to a $1,000-winning total of $399, and thanks to Pierce betting correctly about the final clue being a Triple Stumper, he's now a two-day champion! Two-day total: $33,800.
