TPIR: The following episode was originally scheduled to air sometime in December.
We start off with Courtney, Armando, Lorri and Melanie. The first IUFB is a pair of iPhones (Amber and Gwendolyn).
Armando Soto, an FBI agent from Fresno, CA, plays Dice Game for a Jeep Wrangler (Std., AT, AC, EBH)(Rachael; dice brought by Amber and Gwen). First number is 2.
Second number: 6- NO
Third number: 5- NO; LOWER
Fourth number: 2- NO; HIGHER
Last number: 4- NO; HIGHER
Last number is 5. Second number is 2. Third number...3. Is that fourth number not a 1...sadly, it's 1, so he loses the $22,315 Jeep.
Jewels now shines on down to Contestant's Row and the second IUFB is a ceiling fan (Rachael).
Courtney: $100 (STAGE GARF)
Lorri: BUCK (STUPID BID)
Melanie Brown could be celebrating her 40th birthday with some accessories marked at $1,450 (Rachael), surf gear marked at $1,544 (Gwen) and a plasma TV marked at $3,098 (Amber) if she can spot the dud in One Wrong Price. She thinks it's the TV...just $2,499!
Patsy is next to enter the row and the third IUFB is a diamond pendant (Gwen).
After Jewels Lemos won some "jewels", this Freemont, CA native plays Cliff Hangers for an Ashley living room (Amber) and home accessories (Gwen), a prize package worth $5,784. Let's see what Rachael's overseeing today in the SP department- a TPIR PC game, a mini firdge and a chip and dip set. Her guess for the game is $20, which is right! She then GARFS by saying $12 on the mini fridge, when it's actually $32. Thus, she now has to get the price of the chip and dip set within $5. Her bid is $35...it's $40 to win on the very last step!
Video Bonus: Cliffhangers down to the wire
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Armando ($598): 20 + 65 = $.85
Melanie ($6,443): 65 + 65 = OVER
Jewels ($7,811): $.95
Jewels goes to the Showcase!
Robert Rubin then walks on down and the fourth IUFB is a catameran (Amber).
Robert: $8,000 (WILLY OF THE CENTURY)
Lorri plays Clock Game for $1,000, a car stereo system (Rachael) and a treadmill (Gwen). Folks, we're getting into four-digit prizes in this game for the first time in a while, because the ARP of the stereo was $1,342. She starts with $900, then
$1,100...$1,300...$1,400...$1,500...$1,400...$1,395...tries to one up and one down from there...then $1,299...then goes back to $1,397 and runs out of time, making this the second Clock Game WIPEOUT of the season. Maybe they should go back to three-digit prizes?
Video Bonus: Dismal Clock Game
Shantell Lawson then hears the magic words and the next IUFB is an electric keyboard (Rachael).
Robert plays Flip Flop for a pair of gas motorscooters (Amber & Gwen). Board:
He should at least Flop. He decides to just Flop to $5,398...but they're only $3,598, so he should've Flip-Flopped.
Frank Rizzo is the last one called on down today and the final IUFB is a wine cabinet (Amber).
Patsy: $1,000 (this is not good for Courtney)
TODAY'S FIRST FOUR BREAKFAST CLUB MEMBER: Courtney
Shantelle will really be jumping and screaming if she wins a 2009 Pontiac G6 worth $20,295 (Gwen) playing Pass the Buck.
HBP medicine: $6.29
PICK: HBP medicine- WRONG
Ranch dressing: $2.99
Four cheese mashed potatoes: $1.29
PICK: Mashed potatoes- $2.29
Her first pick off the board is #2...$3,000. After nearly bailing out with that, she risks it with #4...should've walked.
#5: LOSE EVERYTHING
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Shantell ($865): Quarter + Quarter = $.50
Robert ($1,220): Quarter + 15 = $.40
Lorri ($3,495): 20 + 25 = $.45
Shantell goes to the Showcase.
In the first Showcase, we see Rich wearing a goofy toupee while on a fake worldwide news set on a new HDTV. Second, you might try to look up this news anchor dating a lovely female news anchor (Amber) while using a new computer system. Finally, if you want to get away from this news anchor altogether, take a rest in a new Hi-Lo trailer. All prizes are modeled by Rachael.
SHANTELL BIDS $21,500 ON TRAILER SHOWCASE- STAGE GARF (Doesn't quite cover the trailer)
MY BID FOR TRAILER SHOWCASE: $27,150
For Jewels, we have a Pulaski bedroom (Gwen), a massage table (Rachael), back massages for a year and a spa (Amber).
JEWELS BIDS $16,013 ON ROOM/SPA SHOWCASE
MY BID FOR ROOM/SPA SHOWCASE: $20,500
DIFFERENCE: $8,988- SHANTELL WINS!
Too bad Jewels didn't bid 25 grand, because she would've set a new daytime Showcase record. Oh well, Shantell wins her trailer showase and a total of $28,555 in stuff.

Kalaau quickly solves MOVIE POSTER for $2,000.
Round 1 category is Song Lyrics and out on the wheel now is a trip to Belize worth $9,020. This is a big puzzle. In the middle of the round, Kalaau calls five T's for the Wild Card and has $8,800 in his bank at this moment. But he then calls a dud in M. After Chris calls the C, we have...
I/J _ S T/WANT/TO/C E _ E _ R A T E/
ANOTHER/D A _/O _/_ I _ I N _
...he calls the L's for another $1,400 and solves I JUST WANT TO CELEBRATE ANOTHER DAY OF LIVING for $2,700.
Swanson Broth Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round category is Fun & Games. Carol lands on the Million Dollar Wedge early on but duds out with R. After Chris calls the H's, we have...

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: MK8543037
IHOP Mystery Round category is Proper Names. Carol starts off with a $3,500 T then calls four R's for another $1,200 and the Free Spin. She uses her Free Spin after calling a dud in P. After she then buys the A's, we have...
A _ T _ R
_ R E N _ A N
_ R A _ E R
...she then calls a D for the trip, a $400 B, but then spins Lose a Turn. Kalaau calls a $700 C, a $3,500 F and solves ACTOR BRENDAN FRASER for another $4,200 and $6,200 total.
The category for the $3,000 Toss-Up is Thing:

Kalaau solves CAMPING PERMIT to go to $9,200 as we head into the Speed-Up Round category of People. Consonants are worth $1,600 apiece. After Kalaau calls the F's...
N _ _ _ L
_ F F _ C _ R S
...he can't solve. Chris then calls the V and solves NAVAL OFFICERS to seal the match with another $4,800 and $26,950 total! Kalaau leaves with $9,200 and Carol has $1,000.
DUDS: B, D, T, Y
Big Money Round: Chris spins the A in GAME and the category is People. Starting with:
_ _ _ T _
_ R _ _ _
I have a guess of PHOTO GROUP. He calls C, M, P and A and gets...
_ _ _ T _
_ R _ _ P
...well, we all know the second word...but not with the first word (he was incorrect with WATCH GROUP). It was YOUTH GROUP and he is not the second straight Jeep winner. He needed at least the H.
Jeopardy!: Our second group of teens:
Bradley Silverman (Alpharetta, GA)- Junior
Brandon Saunders (New York)- Sophomore
Casey Clough (Columbia, SC)- Junior
STATE THE LANDMARK (the state must be IDed in each correct response)
IT WASN'T RATED R
ON THE MONEY
LITERARY RHYME TIME
At the first break, Saunders leads with $3,400. Clough has $2,600 and Silverman has an even $2,000. Silverman finds the Daily Double under the $800 On the Money clue with $3,000; he trails Saunders for the lead by $400 while Clough has $2,800. His wager is $500.
There's a picture of the Bolshoi Theater on the note worth 100 of these.
"What is ruble?"...right for a $100 lead! But Saunders is back in front after the round with $4,800 while Silverman has $4,100 and Clough has $3,600.
ROUND 1 LACH TRASH: $2,400
A TESTAMENT TO YOUTH
WOMEN IN SPORTS
ONCE UPON A NOVEMBER
Silverman finds Daily Double #1 under the $1,600 Body Works clue with $6,900 so far. Saunders has $4,800 and Clough has half that total ($2,400). His wager is $3,000. To keep the lead:
These three pairs of glands, including the sublingual ones, are what make your mouth water.
"What are saliviary glands?"...NOT ACCEPTABLE. He needed to have removed the second I- it was salivary glands, so he's out of the lead once again, this time at $3,900. By the time he finds the other Daily Double under the $1,200 Guiness Records clue, he's back in front again, this time with $10,300. He leads the other guy by $1,100. His wager this time is $2,000. Again, to stay in the lead:
The most vote cast in a national election occurred in May 2004 when 387 million voted in this country.
"What is India?"...right to go to $12,300!
DJ! LACH TRASH: $5,600
SCORES AFTER DOUBLE JEOPARDY!:
FJ! CATEGORY: Earth Facts.
Because of the Earth's rotation, a person at sea level is lightest when standing at this degree of latitude.
Response: "What is zero degrees?"
Wager: ALL IN
Final score: $1,600
Saunders...is right and goes to 20 grand. Silverman...is also right and with another $1,000 goes into the semi-finals! The other two stick around for now on the Wild Card Leaderboard (moreso for Brandon).
