1/11/2010 Results

LMAD: On our last show, we set a new all-time worst Big Deal losing streak of 13 aired episodes in a row. Maybe they'll be the ones to snap it at the end of today's show- the '70s-inspired couple of Henry (wearing an afro) & Sandra. Jonathan starts things off with a bottle of the show's spring water. If they can collect three more of those water bottles, they can trade all four in for something else green-related- the Toyota Prius (Curtain #1) worth $23,150. The other bottles are found under all but one of four numbered boxes on a table in front of Curtain #2 (Alison). They pick Boxes #1, #2 & #4. The Sure Thing Jackpot for this green deal starts with, fittingly, what's inside the green small box (Jonathan)- $1,000. For now, they're going on.

1. #4- WATER

The money is then thrown out for a Panasonic 65" plasma TV and a Blu-Ray Disc player worth $3,500 (Curtain #3). They will continue.

2. #2- WATER

The final offer from the Sure Thing Jackpot is the electronics package and the C-note. They're going for the Prius...

3. #1- ZONK

...but they DO NOT win it.

In the second deal, Carrie (dressed as a die) is playing a deal called "The Girl Who Can't Say No". Before she can do a thing, Chief Petty Officer Roger Conrad from the Coast Guard is given the option of $700 or Curtain #2; whatever he doesn't take goes to Carrie. Roger goes with the curtain, so Carrie gets paid...and Roger wins a washer/dryer worth $4,136! The next decision goes to Keith (dressed as a bottle of champaigne)- $700 or the big box. Keith takes the money, so that means Carrie adds to her cash...a trip to Aruba worth $5,124! Finally, since this will serve as a second honeymoon vacation for she and Robert (dressed as the King of Hearts), they definitely decline Curtain #1...and they definitely had reason to- they would've instead won a trip to MOUNT ZONKMORE! PERFECT DEAL!

Our next trader is Charlise (dressed as a graduate). Inside the blue small box (Alison), according to Heather from the prize department, is something that will keep her moving. She can either have the box's contents or the silver envelope. Charlise takes the box, and she will be moving around...in a pair of old roller skates. That costs her a check for $2,600. We'll have one more round of this particular deal later on.

Next to play are Katie and Jesus. They each pick a curtain with a movie genre clue attached:

Curtain #1: Romance
Curtain #2: Sci-Fi
Curtain #3: Action

Katie picks #1 before being offered $600, $700, $800 and a grand for her curtain. She originally wanted the money, but she's going for a possible trip with her curtain...and she's won one to Venice worth $11,186! Afterwards, Jesus selects #3 and turns down $700 to win...a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Yankees baseball camp worth $8,546! But if either one had chosen the middle curtain...they would've received a ZONK robot from the future! PERFECT DEAL #2!

Next, Tanya (dressed as the Ace of Diamonds) and Shannon (dressed as a Card Shark) play Cash or Crash.

ROUND 1:
Tanya: #3- $300
Shannon: #2- $500

ROUND 2:
Tanya: #2- $300 (DOUBLE to $600)
Shannon: #1- $250 ($750)

ROUND 3:
Tanya: #3- $250 ($850)
Shannon: #3- CRASH


Tanya's then given the message from the backstage crew that they've been playing on what's behind Curtain #1 for hours. She goes with it, giving back the $850 she just won...for a Suzuki Quad-Ranger ATV valued at $8,099!

THE BIG DEAL: Katie returns her Venice trip for a chance to win today's Big Deal with a price tag of $33,330. Her final choice of the day is Door #2. The small deal has the Bank Vault, with $1,444 it...is behind the evil Door #1. After Neda does a good luck cheer to receive a $100 bill, we hear that the middle deal contains a living room group that includes an LG 47" LCD HDTV worth $5,652...






















...IT'S NOT HERS EITHER, BECAUSE IT'S BEHIND DOOR #3- THE LOSING STREAK IS HISTORY!!!!! As the first BIG DEAL WINNER this year, she's just won a 2010 Acura RDX 4X2, making her the second-highest winner on this version of the show to date! It also means a grand total of $60,735 in cash and prizes has been given away today! Great way to head into tomorrow morning's repeat!

TPIR: The week's first four contestants are Lisa Marr, Tiffany Bloom, Fernando Theron and Mitch Weaver. Drew exits Door #2 with a Flat Stanley cutout and the first IUFB is an XBOX 360 package (Gwendolyn behind splitting sign).

...NO. ARP of the Genesis: $22,750.

DQ: Breaking 0/5 rule on first choice

Melissa Deblique (wearing natural blue hair) replaces her at the green podium and the second IUFB is a selection of bath robes from Aegean Apparel (All at Door #3).

Melissa: $150 (STAGE GARF)
Mitch: $700
Fernando: $300 (STAGE GARF)
Lisa: $301

ARP: $550

Lisa from Denver could put those robes next to this MyBathUSA.com steam shower (all the models are still at Door #3) if she can make it past the Range Game. Today's range is $5,000-$5,600. She presses the magic button at $5,183-$5,333...she wins by six bucks with the ARP being $5,327! We've been having some good close calls in this Pricing Game as of late!

Coming on down sixth from the very back of the crowd is Peggy Reeder and the third IUFB is the Birdieball game set (Manuela at Door #2).

Peggy: $925
Melissa: $1,150
Mitch: $657
Fernando: BUCK


ARP: $1,299

Melissa plays the $1,000 Clock Game for a Skee-Ball game (Gwen) and some gloves/helmets for the Honda Ruckus scooter (Rachel). The ARP of the game was $849. She opens with $300, followed by bids of $400, $500, $600, $700, $800 and a grand before Drew has to stop the clock at the :25 mark because she's bidding too fast. She next goes with $900, $950 (getting her the cuckoo), $900, $850, $825, $875, $865, $860, one downs from there to $851, goes back down to $845 and goes up in singletons...but she runs out of time before reaching $849, so we have our first CG WIPEOUT of the season.

DQ: Bidding $950 after a "Higher" prompt was given for her previous bid of $900

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Tiffany ($1,250): $.65
Melissa ($1,299): $.70
Lisa ($5,877): 35 + 30 = $.65

Unfortunately, Melissa's going to the Showcase.

Hoping that he's smarter than at least Melissa is Thomas Obermale from the Army and IUFB #4 is a Dashing Diamonds purple ring (Rachel).

Thomas: $2,200
Mitch: $1,350
Fernando: $3,000

Peggy: $2,201

All are over.

Thomas: $950

ARP: $1,315

Peggy plays Pick a Number (Manuela) for a Wesley Allen queen bed and the Amazon Kindle (Gwen). Board:

$ 4 _ 2 2

NUMBERS AVAILABLE: 3, 5 & 7

She's guessing the seven is lucky for her in this PG...

$ 4 7 2 2

...but it's not. I had the right ARP of $4,322.

Plugging in the orange spot next is Tonia Thompson and the next IUFB is an accident avoidance system (Manuela & Rachel).

Tonia: $900
Thomas: $275 (STAGE GARF)
Mitch: $556
Fernando: $450

ARP: $1,799

Tonia plays Let 'Em Roll for the KIA Soul (Gwen). The groceries modeled by Rachel are the Glad ForceFlex trash bags, Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter and a canister of Sun-Maid Raisins. The trash bags are $7.49. She first says Lower for the peanut butter...$2.89. Then, she guesses Higher for the raisins...they're $3.69, so somebody will have all three rolls to work with in this PG for the first time this season!

1. CAR/CAR/CAR/$500/$1,000- GOES ON
2. CAR/$1,000- GOES ON
3. WINS $1,500

Today's Consolation Prize: Arthur Murray gift certificate

WOF: This week, we're saluting International Food. And the first Toss-Up category is, fittingly, Food & Drink:

_ _ _ D _ _ H

M _ _ _ _ _ L L S

Ken solves SWEDISH MEATBALLS for $1,000. Let meet the week's first three contestants:

Ken Hodgeman (Fredon, NJ)- Classic car restorer/repairer
Christy Nester (San Diego)- 4th Grade teacher
Manchie Hughes (Olney Springs, CO)- Does professional rodeo events with her husband Kyle

The $2,000 Toss-Up category is Place:

_ R A _ N

S _ A _ I O N

Manchie takes the TRAIN STATION to $2,000.

Campbell's Jackpot Round category is Show Biz and out on the wheel now is a $10,000 trip to the Harbour Plaza in Hong Kong from World Hotels.com. Manchie first calls a $550 N and buys two E's, then she calls two R's for another $1,800 and purchases an A and three O's. But she next spins Lose a Turn. Secondly, Ken calls a $400 S and a $500 T while on Jackpot...

S O _ _ - O _ T

_ E R _ O R _ A N _ E

...and he solves SOLD-OUT PERFORMANCE to add a $7,350 Jackpot! That gives him a new total of $9,250!

LAT: Manchie

The next category is Before & After. Ken, who broke the Jackpot just now, starts off this round with an LAT hit. Christy secondly calls a $500 T, a $600 S and buys five E's, followed by a $300 H and two C's for another $800. Afterwards, she purchases a pair of A's, lights up a $600 N and a couple of D's for an additional $600 and buys double O's to clean out the vowels. She then calls a $400 M and we have...

_ _ E E T _ O O D

M A C

A N D / C H E E S E

...she solves FLEETWOOD MAC AND CHEESE for $3,050.

LAT: Ken

Meineke Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is Phrase. Christy's up first with three T's for a $1,000 Gourmet Foodstore.com gift certificate and three S's for $2,400 before buying a pair of E's. Next up is a $500 L, an A buy, a $900 H and the purchase of a trio of I's, all of which is followed by an N for the Hong Kong trip. Then comes a $500 G and here's the board...

L E T ' S / S _ I _ E

T H I N G S / _ _

A / _ I T

...she nails LET'S SPICE THINGS UP A BIT for an extra $3,550, the gift tag, the Hong Kong vacation and a trip to the Dorado Pacifica Beach Resort in Ixtapa, Mexico worth $5,370! When we add this round's big haul of $19,920 in cash and prizes to her total, she now has total winnings of $22,970!

PERFECT ROUND

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: LM2871214 (Lanar M. from Pennsylvania)

The last Toss-Up board asks for something In the Kitchen:

_ V _ N

_ _ _ _ S

Ken solves OVEN MITTS to also break five figures with $12,250.

Next category is Title. He first calls triple T's for $2,400 (I already know the puzzle at this point; the last two words also form the name of a kind of candy bar) and buys six E's, then he lights up the U while on Free Play to already finish off this particular puzzle's vowels. After that, he lights up twin R's for another $1,800...

T _ E / T _ R E E

_ U _ _ E T E E R _

...and he solves THE THREE MUSKETEERS for $3,950 more, giving him $16,200!

PERFECT ROUND

We next ask that burning question What Are You Doing? Christy opens this go-round with a $700 G, buys a couple E's, but she then calls the first dud all night with T. Second, Manchie puts up a $500 N and purchases double I's, followed by a couple R's to add $1,200 and we then hear the big bell for Speed-Up Mode. Board at this moment:

_ I _ _ I N G

_ R E _ _ / _ _ _ _ E R _

The remaining consonants are worth $1,900 apiece. She next calls two S's...

_ I _ _ I N G

_ R E S _ / _ _ _ _ E R S

...but she goofs at the last second with PICKING FRESH BERRIES, probably costing her $5,250. Ken then has the L lit up...

_ I _ _ I N G

_ R E S _ / _ L _ _ E R S

...and he steals PICKING FRESH FLOWERS to finish with a very nice runner-up score of $18,100! Manchie leaves with $2,000 in Toss-Up money and Christy holds off the competition with $22,970 in cash and merchandise!

So far, a decent $43,070 in cash and prizes has been given away this evening.

DUD (before big bell): $500 T (Christy)
DQ: Manchie (blown solve)

NO BANKRUPT TRASH TONIGHT

Big Money Round: As I previously stated in the middle of last week, the car that could be won this week is a Mini Cooper. With that, Christy Nester spins the E in GAME and the category is Thing. Starting with:

_ E _

This bonus puzzle resulted in the first bonus round win of an outstanding Season 23. She calls D, B, P and A and gets...

_ E B

B R _ _ S E R

...about halfway in the countdown, she gets WEB BROWSER for a 2010 Mini Cooper Clubman (Fairly loaded) worth $29,250, making her grand total $52,220 in cash and stuff!

One week from now, three music icons will compete for charity.

Silent Library: It's time for the start of the second season! Here are our first six contestants, all from Toms River, NJ: Brandon, Luke, Mike, Mark, Ed & Michael.

$300 Round:

1. The first new challenge of the season is called "Horse Hit". After Mike is turned around, he has to get smacked by a horse jockey's spinning riding crop for 20 seconds.
RESULT: PASS ($300)

2. Luke's first challenge is called "Bad Taste Pastry". He's got 30 seconds to eat three tartar sauce-filled Canolis.
RESULT: FAIL (he took too long)

3. The first round concludes with Michael getting a task called "Cheer Up Clown". For the next 15 seconds, he has to endure a sad clown blowing on his belly (my dog Ginger absolutely hates that).
RESULT: PASS ($600)

$400 Round:

1. For his second challenge, Ed's in a "Tight Squeeze". He has half a minute to squeeze into and button up a pair of a skinny woman's tight jeans.
RESULT: PASS (despite the fact that he ripped the jeans; $1,000)

2. Brandon gets to do a "Sticky Walk". He has to walk backwards on a velcro treadmill for the next 30 seconds.
RESULT: FAIL (he fell off about midway in the countdown, and the team got too loud late)

3. The next challenge is a very new one on this show, because only one contestant gets to sit it out (in this case, it's Luke) while everybody else has to take part in it.
