3/13/2009 Results- SPRING BREAK WEEK DAY 5

TPIR: The Friday show begins with Bethany Baderdeen, John Stotts, Chelsea Kay and John Cullinan. Drew makes his first really late entrance in a while, running in from the left of Door #2. The first IUFB, coming down from the ceiling, is a men's watch.

Chelsea: $550
Bethany: $820
Stotts: $1,200
Cullinan: $1,001

ARP: $3,200

John Stotts plays Cover Up for a Ford Fusion (Std., AT, Prot, SYNC/Mirror, Stereo, Mats)(Lanisha). Board:

First number: 2 or 3?
Second number: 3, 6 or 8?
Third number: 2, 5, 6 or 7?
Fourth number: 1, 3, 4, 6 or 8?
Last number: 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 or 9?

First guess is $23,589...unfortunately, only the fourth number's wrong. He then guesses $23,549...but it's $23,519. The Gavazzi Theorem claims another victim here.

(Drew put no drama in the final reveal.)

The fifth player is Kevin Bailey and the second IUFB is a 3-in-1 game table (Lanisha & Rachael).

Kevin: $2,500
John: $999
Chelsea: $1,000
Bethany: BUCK

ARP: $587

Bethany plays Squeeze Play for a Beachcomber hot tub (Amber). Board:

62713

Does she know it's $6,713...NO, she goes with $6,213 instead.

Sixth is Bonnie Gordon and the third IUFB is a refrigerator (Amber).

Bonnie: $425
Kevin: $1,700
John: $1,039
Chelsea: $1,701

ARP: $1,399

The other John, a Celtics fan who just watched "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" just before arriving here, plays Easy As 1-2-3 for designer handbags (Amber), a work chair (Lanisha) and a mirrored HDTV (Rachael).

#1- Chair
#2- Handbags
#3- HDTV

Prices:

Chair: $979
Handbags: $1,325
HDTV: $2,495

Good for him- I would've had the handbags and HDTV reversed!

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Bethany ($587): $.85
John S. ($3,200): WINS $1,000!
John C. ($6,198): 30 + 35 = $.65

In Stotts' Bonus Spin...45 cents.

(Note: The Showcase Showdown red money win graphics now have a silver shadow on them to match the $1 space on the Big Wheel.)

Coming on down now is David Mordnes and the fourth IUFB is a kayak package (Lanisha & Rachael).

David: $2,100
Chelsea: $2,101
Bonnie: $1,200
Kevin: $1,400

ARP: $1,999

Kevin plays Bullseye for an Ashley dining room w/ dinnerware (Amber) worth $5,053. The products Drew models this time are Angel Soft bath tissue, Hot Pockets Value Pack, Clorox bleach, Northland juice and Udderly Smooth skin cream.

1. 3 Hot Pockets: 3 X $5.25 = BUST ($15.75)
2. 3 Juices: 3 X $3.39 = WIN ($10.17)

Next to leave the crowd is Chanhom Smythe and the next IUFB is a Beatles collection package that includes an iPod (Rachael).

Chanhom: $599
David: $801
Chelsea: BUCK
Bonnie: $1,100

ARP: $795

Chanhom plays Punch a Bunch (big bill shown by Lanisha). Today's SPs are modeled by Amber.

1. Tabletop video poker game
IS NOT: $95
PICK: HIGHER- $120

2. Cell-powered radio
IS NOT: $50
PICK: LOWER- $34

3. Air sanitizer
IS NOT: $200
PICK: LOWER- $150

4. Bluetooth shades
IS NOT: $150
PICK: HIGHER- $199

She swept the SPs in this game- impressive! I think Fingers only wanted one of them right. She punches out holes #3, #15, #35 and #42. #3 has $50. #15 has $250, and she continues. #35 has $50, so she must take what's in #42...she's the first $10,000 Punch a Bunch winner of the season (and only the second in the Drew Carey era)! After getting all those SPs, she certainly deserves it!

(Note: After the regular dings went off when the $10K slip was shown, the clanging/whooping and the gameboard blinking both occur by mistake. IMO, I think only the clanging should sound for a $10K win in this game in the future, like on the Big Wheel nowadays.)

Video Bonus: Today's Punch a Bunch with a weird ending

Rich is then shown to call on Laura Widulski and the final IUFB is a set of three Ralph Lauren coats (All). Chelsea's been here the whole show.

Laura: $3,000
David: $2,000
Chelsea: $2,001
Bonnie: $2,002 (possible bad news for Chelsea)

ARP: $2,496

TODAY'S FIRST FOUR BREAKFAST CLUB MEMBER: Chelsea

Bonnie will now try to get That's Too Much's winning percentage back to .500. If she can, she'll drive away in a Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid...but it doesn't happen. Here was the setup:

1. $16,005
2. $18,221
3. $19,801
4. $21,962
5. $22,990
6. $24,870- THAT'S TOO MUCH
7. $25,980
8. $27,995

ARP: $26,225; good try by her. I'm kinda surprised she didn't stop at $21,962.

My lineup today:

1. Easy as 1-2-3
2. Cover Up
3. Squeeze Play
4. Punch a Bunch
5. That's Too Much
6. Bullseye

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:

Chanhom ($11,098): 50 + Dime = $.60

The first Showcase has a Canon mega-pixel camera, a Panasonic waterproof camcorder, and being shown on the audience screen, trips to Key West and Peru. All prizes are modeled by Rachael.

HELLO, NEWTON
DESCRIBING THE TV SHOW
19th CENTURY FRANCE
BUSINESS LETTERS
LESSER-KNOWN LINES
RHYME TIME

At the first break, Bishop leads with $3,000; Klink has two and Simpson just has $400. Simpson later finds the Daily Double under the $600 France clue; since he has just $800 at this point, he wagers $1,000 on this clue:

He designed a towering gallery of machines for the Paris Exhibition of 1867.

"Who is...Eiffel?"...good guess- he's up to $1,800! At round's end, Bishop's up to eight grand. Simpson now has three and Klink still has two.

ATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: NONE
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $3,600
TOTAL LACH TRASH: $3,600

DJ! Categories:

13-LETTER WORDS

Bishop hits the round's first DD under the $1,600 Cities clue with $12,400; Simpson's now at $4,600 and Klink's at $3,600. His wager is $3,600.

A center of tulip-growing, this Dutch city gave its name to a section of Manhattan.

He can't come up with Harlem, so he drops to $8,800. Bishop later finds the other DD under the $1,200 English Lit clue; with $13,600 now, he wagers $2,400. Trying again to reach $16,000, here's the DD clue this time:

In this circa 1470 work, the Brown Knight Without Pity is as bad as her name until Sir Gareth gets 'im.

"What is Beowulf?"...wrong again. It was "Le Morte d'Arthur"; he's down to $11,200 at this point.

Lisa Klink must get FJ! correct in order to have any hopes of staying in this tournament.

FJ! CATEGORY: World Money.

Amounts on the banknotes in this country, one of the world's ten largest, are in 17 different official languages.

Lisa Klink's response was "What is China?"...NO. She loses $3,000 as a result, meaning she's going home with $5,000. Dave Simpson wrote down "What is India?" with no hesitation...because he's right! He wagered $1,200, so he's at $13,000, meaning he'll at least be in second place on the Wild Card Leaderboard. Ben Bishop...also has India, and he wagered $1,004, meaning he's a semi-finalist!

WILD CARD STANDINGS:

1. Cora Peck: $15,500
2. Dave Simpson: $13,000
3. Matt Kohlstedt: $10,600
