TPIR: On Episode 4444K of Purple Wheel Week, the first four players today are Anthony, Florence, Gerald and Ardyce. The first IUFB is a set of guitars (Rachael).
Gerald Pannell II from New Orleans plays Five Price Tags for a Dodge Charger (Tamiko). Board (Brandi):
1. Batter dispenser (Rachael)
GUESS: FALSE- $40
2. Bluetooth device (Tamiko)
GUESS: FALSE- OOPS
3. Toiletry bag (Rachael)
GUESS: FALSE- NO
4. PNY Flash drive (Tamiko)
GUESS: FALSE- $108
Now, for the car; I'm not sure he's going to pull this off...and he doesn't. He picks the two most expensive prices on the board ($25,191 & $24,485), neither of which are right. ARP: $22,605.
University of Kentucky student Lisa is next and the second IUFB is an enyclopedia (Brandi & Tamiko).
Ardyce Fowler's celebrating a birthday, and she could win these three birthday gifts in One Wrong Price- a brass cradle (Brandi) marked at $4,625, SCUBA gear marked at $2,250 and a pair of motorscooters marked at $1,990. I say the cradle's too expensive, but she goes with the motorscooters...they're actually $2,598, so her birthday just got happier!
Here comes Pascual and the third IUFB is a sofa (Brandi).
Pascual Espain plays Bonkers for a spa (Rachael & Tamiko). Board:
4 5 7 8
1. LHLL- STAGE GARF
2. LLHL- STAGE GARF
3. HLLH- INCORRECT
4. LHHL- STAGE GARF
Final try: HHLL- LOSE
ARP: $7,102, so he just needed to have moved the second marker down.
TODAY'S WIN AT HOME PRIZE: Haier refrigerator
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Pascual ($1,875): Dime + 15 = Quarter
Gerald ($2,324): Nickel + 45 = $.50
Ardyce ($10,472): $.75
The birthday lady's in the Showcase!
Coming on down next is Kristina Labarber and the fourth IUFB is a JVC 42" LCD TV (Tamiko).
Kristina plays Stack the Deck for a Dodge Caliber (Brandi). Board:
Rachael models the game today.
1. Trash bags and pain relief
PICK: Pain relief- OF COURSE, BUT SHE PICKS THE FIRST NUMBER ($ 1 _ , _ _ _)
2. Supplement and nasal spray
PICK: Supplement- YES INDEED; CHOOSES THIRD NUMBER
($ 1 _ , 8 _ _)
3. Cough drops and pizza rolls
PICK: Cough drops- $2.15
She does get the second number of the car right (6), but blows it with a final guess of $16,859. ARP was $16,845. She didn't play this well at all.
Angela Bower enters the suddenly hot red spot (for IUFBs only, anyway) and the fifth IUFB is a Broyhill dinette (Brandi).
Florence Michens, a retired registered nurse from Texas, plays Super Squeeze Play for a Ford Ranger (Rachael). Board:
Removing the first 5 is a no-no; she instead removes the 2 for a guess of $15,835...
$ 1 5 , 8 3 5
...no car games won today. ARP: $15,235.
Tim Rowe is the last contestant called today and the final IUFB is a home stereo system (Tamiko).
ARP: $1,499, meaning Anthony Boniello won't be going to the First Four Breakfast Club!
This pre-med student plays Magic Number for a wine cooler (Brandi) and a home gym (Rachael). He sets his magic number at just $892, which is a definite loser. The wine cooler was $1,599 and the gym was $2,999.
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Anthony ($1,499): 15 + 60 = $.75
Florence ($2,099): 35 + 35 = $.70
Kristina ($2,999): 40 + 55 = $.95
Kristina faces the birthday girl in the Showcase.
The first Showcase has sun, sand and surf- themed prizes all modeled by Rachael: Swimwear, a trip to Hawaii and a West White Potter Sailboat.

MY BID FOR BOAT SHOWCASE: $24,600
For Ardyce, we see Brandi digging for oil. She starts using new garden tools, then cuts some roots with new power tools. Then, instead of oil, she finds four bars of gold. Finally, she finally discovers some oil that can use to fill up a new Jeep Compass Sport 4X4 (Std., Paint, #25D)(Tamiko).
ARDYCE BIDS $28,000 ON JEEP SHOWCASE- STAGE WILLY
MY BID FOR JEEP SHOWCASE: $21,000

Round 1 category is Thing and out on the wheel now is a collection of EA Sports games and $5,000 cash, a prize package worth $5,420. Christine can't pick up the Wild Card with an instant dud of T. On her second turn, after some work, she spins Lose a Turn. At that point, Dan's in control with this showing:
_ A _ _ L I N G
_ I N _ O _
_ I S _ L A _ S
I think I know, but I'm not sure. He lands on $2,500 but duds out with the M. Daiquiri calls three D's for $1,500 but loses her turn with H, missing out on the Free Spin. Christine then solves DAZZLING WINDOW DISPLAYS to go to $3,000.
DUDS: E, H, M, R, T
Eggland's Best Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round category is Phrase; it's also a big puzzle. Early on, Dan calls five T's for a $1,000 Blackberry flip phone with six months of service and a "Wheel of Fortune" mobile game. Later, he calls four N's for the Wild Card. After buying the A's, we have...
S O _ E T H I N G/R O _ A N T I _/A _ O _ T/
T R A _ E _ I N G/_ _/TRAIN
...I've got it. He calls the M's for another $600 and solves SOMETHING ROMANTIC ABOUT TRAVELING BY TRAIN for $3,250, the phone and he can call his friends on it and say that he's going on a Canadian Rockies Train Trip, for a total of $11,050 in cash and prizes.
WINNING ID FOR TRIP: JB0497636
Campbell's Soup Mystery Round category is Same Name. Early on, Dan loses his Wild Card to a Bankrupt. Daiquiri then loses $350 to the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge. A little later, Christine calls a P while on the Mystery Wedge next to the MDW; she flips...everybody's gotten a Bankrupt this round. After Dan buys the O's, we have...
_ O R _ _ R O Y/&/
S _ A R T Y - PANTS
...I'm not sure about the top word. He then tries my guess of CORDUROY & SMARTY-PANTS...right for another $2,750 and $13,800 total.
DUDS: E (repeated once by Christine)
BANKRUPTS: 3 (Everybody)
$3,000 Toss-Up category is TV Title:
T _ E/_ _ _/_ _ N G/

Christine solves THE BIG BANG THEORY to double up to $6,000. Speed-Up Round category is Song Lyrics after some work by Christine and consonants are worth $1,500 apiece. Board at this point:
D O _ ' T/S T _ _ D/SO/_ _ O S _/
She calls the N's and solves DON'T STAND SO CLOSE TO ME for another $5,350 and a final total of $11,350. Daiquiri leaves with $1,000 and Dan wins with $13,800.
Big Money Round: Dan spins the S in AMERICA'S and the category is Phrase. Starting with:
_ _ L _ /T _ E/_ _ _ _
I think I know, but I'm not sure. He calls C, D, H and O and gets...
HOLD/THE/_ _ _ O
...I hope that in the future, he doesn't have to repeat the words HOLD THE MAYO several times to a drive-thru worker on a sandwich order while driving in the new VW Tiguan SE 4X2 (Std., Mats) he just won! It's worth $27,814, giving him $41,614 in cash and prizes! That's the first time this season a car has been won at home base.
WINNING ID FOR CAR: EK5157443
