11/25/2008 Results

TPIR: Episode 4532K begins with Karim, Brandi, Alexandra and Kevin. Drew once again comes out acting like a sniper and the first IUFB is a white water raft (Gabrielle & Phire).

Kevin: $900
Alexandra: $1,000
Brandi: $1,001
Karim: BUCK

ARP: $3,544

For the second straight day, we're NOT starting with a cash or car game. Instead, Brandi Milloy will play One Wrong Price for an eliptical trainer marked at $1,899 (Gabrielle), accessories marked at a whopping $3,022 (Phire) and a cupboard marked at $3,593 (Amber). I say the ARP of the accessories is wrong and she agrees...$2,665!

Leaving his/her seat fifth is Lois and the second IUFB is a Dell laptop (Amber & Gabrielle).

Lois: $569
Karim: $700
Kevin: $1,200

Alexandra: BUCK

ARP: $1,204

Kevin Lawhorn plays the Grand Game; the $10,000 hasn't been won here this season, so maybe today will be the day. Today's target is $8 and the products are Campbell's Soup, Gold Bond Lotion, drain opener, SnoreStop, Dial Soap and Aleve Liquid Gels.

1. Soup- $1.29 ($10)
2. Lotion- $9.12

This game is still winless; he wins $10 here.

Coming on down sixth is De Andre and he's about to lose his pants!!! Anyway, the third IUFB is a sapphire/diamond ring.

De Andre: $2,501
Alexandra: $1,700
Lois: $2,000
Karim: $2,502

ARP: $2,030

Lois Solado, originally from Cleveland and now in San Diego, plays Master Key for a Chevrolet HHR (Phire) plus headphones (Amber) and a cradle (Gabrielle).

1. Chocolate mill
SETUP: 635
GUESS: $35- YOU BET; CHOOSES KEY #3

2. Solar-powered radio
SETUP: 359
GUESS: $59- RIGHT; CHOOSES KEY #1

Key #3...is the Master Key, so everything is hers! Drew didn't do the big reveal correctly, though; instead of going straight to the car lock, Drew asked her to open up the cradle lock after she had opened the headphones lock.

TODAY'S WIN AT HOME PRIZE: Wine cabinet (Phire)

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Kevin: 30 + 35 = $.65
Brandi: $.85
Lois: WITH DREW'S HELP, WINS $1,000 AND SHOWCASE BERTH!

In Lois' Bonus Spin...just 55 cents.

Mary Jo Wright is called on down next and the next IUFB is a glass door refrigerator (Amber).

Mary Jo: $500
Karim: $3,000
De Andre: $999
Alexandra: $1,100

ARP: $1,699

Alexandra Klomhaus, a UCLA student, plays Magic Number for an off-road vehicle (Gabrielle) and a pool table (Phire). She sets her Magic Number at $1,213...not gonna work. The pool table was $3,595 and the ATV was $2,499.

Next is Pamela Yantor and next up for bidding is tennis equipment (Gabrielle).

Pamela: $500
Mary Jo: $501
Karim: $350 (STAGE GARF)
De Andre: $502

ARP: $958

By default, De Andre Whitbock (originally from Akron and now in Pasadena), the guy who's going to lose his pants any day now, plays That's Too Much for a Dodge Nitro (Amber).

1. $19,250
2. $20,155
3. $22,050
4. $23,891
5. $25,120- THAT'S WAY TOO MUCH

ARP: $21,255, so the third price was the way to go.

The last one called down today is Christopher Nelson and the final IUFB is luggage (Phire).

Christopher: $500
Pamela: $800
Mary Jo: $1,000
Karim: $101 (SUICIDE BID)


ARP: $700

TODAY'S FIRST FOUR BREAKFAST CLUB MEMBER: Karim

Christopher from Juneau, AK plays Balance Game for a trip to Jamaica. With Amber & Gabrielle modeling the trip, Phire handles the scale today. The last three numbers in the price of the trip are 5, 5 & 4.

DOLLAR VALUES AVAILABLE: $1,000, $2,000 & $3,000

I say $5,554 for the trip, while he goes with $4,554 after messing with the audience...I'm right and he's not, so we have a winless second half.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Christopher: 40 + 30 = $.70
De Andre: $.75
Alexandra: 55 + 70 = OVER

Hold your pants again, De Andre, because you're facing Lois in the Showcase today! I wanted him to win some money on the Big Wheel so that he could buy some bigger pants. Oh well.

We start the first Showcase with something else that sucks something up besides vampires (one was played by Gabrielle)- a new vaccum system (Phire). Second, the vampire doesn't like steaks, so it's scared silly by a new BBQ (Amber). Finally, I hope you don't get bitten by any vampires, much less any insects, while camping inside a new TrailManor trailer (Gabrielle)! Drew & Rich totally bombed the last segment.

LOIS PASSES TO DE ANDRE; DE ANDRE BIDS $17,665 ON TRAILER SHOWCASE-SUPER GARF

MY BID FOR TRAILER SHOWCASE: $28,500

WOF: This will be the last episode in Hawaii until next year. First Toss-Up category is Fun & Games:

M O R N _ _ G/TEE/_ _ M E

Likolani solves MORNING TEE TIME for $1,000.

$5,000 WINNING ID OF THE NIGHT: Cl10973

Tonight's players:

Likolani Kalupu (Oahu, HI)- Server/trainer at a restaurant
Sherry Foster (Kapaau, HI)- Licensed real estate agent
Kawa Haragean (Ka'ai, HI)- University of Hawaii-Hilo student focusing on elementary education

$2,000 Toss-Up category is On the Map:

_ C O T L _ N D/&/

_ A L E S

Sherry solves SCOTLAND & WALES for $2,000.

A trip to Acapulco worth $7,300 appears on the wheel and the Round 1 category is Event. Early on, Sherry calls a $300 T for the Free Spin. But she then uses it after she calls a dud in R to miss out on picking up the trip. After she buys the E, we have...

_ N N _ _ _

_ _ _ _

_ E S T I _ _ _

...at this point, putting FILM as the second word will be incorrect. She then calls D for dud. Kawa calls three L's for $2,700 but calls a dud in M, obviously thinking that second word was FILM and he fell for the trap. Likolani calls an H for the trip, which is the first letter of the important middle word. After a $2,500 F, she solves ANNUAL HULA FESTIVAL to win that amount and the trip, for a new total of $10,800 in cash and trip.

DUDS: D, M, R

Campbell's Soup Jackpot Round category is Song Lyrics. Kawa starts out by picking up the Wild Card with an S but then hits Lose a Turn. Likolani then calls a pair of N's for $7,000. On Kawa's second turn, he loses the Wild Card to a Bankrupt. On his third turn, he calls five L's for the Million Dollar Wedge but then calls a dud in T. After Likolani buys the O, we have...

_ _/_ L L/L _ V _/_ N/_/_ _ L L O _/

S _ _ M _ R _ N _

...she duds out with H. Sherry calls the W's for $600 and solves WE ALL LIVE IN A YELLOW SUBMARINE to go to $3,000 and void Kawa's MDW.

DUDS: C, G, H P, T
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Sherry, Kawa)

Swanson Broth Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is Phrase. Likolani instantly picks up $17,500 by calling five T's. Unfortunately for her, two spins later, she spins Bankrupt to lose $19,100- the second biggest Bankrupt loss this season. OUCH. A little later, Kawa calls two L's while on the Mystery Wedge next to Lose a Turn. He flips it over...but he gets his second Bankrupt of the night. When we get back to Likolani, she calls a $3,500 D but several spins later comes Lose a Turn. After Sherry then calls the B's, we have...

THE/HUSTLE/_ N D/_ U S T L E/OF/THE/

B _ _/_ _ T _

...she buys the A, calls a $600 G and buys the I's, then solves THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE BIG CITY for another $2,900 and a trip to NYC (with tickets to the play "Stomp"), for a new total of $15,505 in cash and trip and the lead (the NYC's trip value of $9,255 was incorrect; it's actually $9,605).

DUDS: R
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Likolani, Kawa)

WINNING ID FOR TRIP: PB00702

Last Toss-Up category is People:

E _ _ _ R T

D I _ E _ S

Sherry solves EXPERT DIVERS to go to $18,505 as we head into the Speed-Up Round category of Place. Consonants are worth $6,000 each! After she calls the N...

_ _ _ _ T R _ N _ _ S

_ _ R _ _ _ _ S _

...she can't solve. Kawa calls the L but can't solve with $18,000 on the table. Likolani calls an H but also can't solve for $18,000. Sherry calls the C's next but can't solve for $24,000. Kawa calls a dud in M. Likolani calls another dud in P. Sherry also duds out with D. Kawa then calls the E's and solves ELECTRONICS WAREHOUSE to leave with $18K! Likolani leaves with $10,800 in cash and trip and Sherry wins the championship by $505!

Big Money Round: This one is important- if Sherry's unsuccessful here tonight, we will be skunked for the first time this season. She spins the R and the category is Fictional Place. Starting with:

_ T _ _ _ _

I think I know already. She calls C, H, P and A and gets...

_ T _ P _ A

...it's not ITHACA now. But does she get UTOPIA?...










...YES- STILL NO SKUNK THIS SEASON!! The bad news is it's not the BMW convertible we couldn't give away the past three out of four nights. The good news...










...she wins $40,000, for a final total of $58,155 in cash and trip!
