4/15/2010 Results- TAX DAY

LMAD: Yesterday's episode was a DISASTER, as less than $5,000 in cash and prizes was given away. Let's hope this one goes a lot better. A couples deal is first, and the team consists of James (dressed as Dr. Zonk) & Teresa (who’s wearing a “Baby Wayne” on her shirt). They can either have $800 or one of the following:

Blue small box (Jonathan): LUXURY
Curtain #1: ENTERTAINMENT
Curtain #2: PARTY

Curtain #3: BIG RISK

They keep their money all the way out so that they can take care of their children. Let’s see everything they’ve passed up by doing that:

Box- Michael Greene & Co. diamond/sapphire earrings ($1,910)
Curtain #1- Home entertainment center, including an LG 47” LCD HDTV and a three-month Netflix subscription ($3,451)
Curtain #2- Dining room, including a one-day private chef ($4,438)
Curtain #3- Kawasaki motorcycle ($5,599)


Secondly, Edith plays the One-Die Deal for a Chevrolet Aveo LT (Std., Paint) from Rydell Chevrolet worth $15,015 (Curtain #1).

1. 4- $500
2. 2- $600 ($1,100)
3. 1- $300 ($1,400); STOPS

At this point, she can keep her cash or buy what’s behind Curtain #3, but she does not…a ton of rotten onions!


Third, Wayne Brady calls on a group of female firefighters and an injured skateboarder that they saved and tells them that whoever pulls out some lipstick first gets to take part in the next deal with $700. That lady is…Laura, and she wants to buy the big box. But then, she’s offered $500, $800, $900, $1,100, $1,300 and $1,500 to sell that box back. She’s going all the way…but all she gets is a shark trip.

The next contestant is Markeeda, who’s playing the Foreign Word Deal. The three German words on the board (Jonathan) this morning are reisen, ubung and taktgeber. Her choice is ubung. Reisen stood for…”travel”, as in a trip to Germany worth $9,356 (Curtain #1). Taktgeber meant…”clock”, as in a grandfather one, but the one behind the big box was broken! She can either keep the word that she has now, or she can trade the mystery prize for the American equivalent of 600 Euros inside the bronze envelope. Markeeda’s final choice is the ubung prize behind Curtain #2. If she had gone with the envelope, 600 Euros would have turned into…$812. The actual English translation of ubung is…”exercise”, which obviously means a TuffStuff home gym that includes the Samsung 32” LCD HDTV, all worth $2,949.

Time now for the Silent Movie Deal. First, Thyron (who is an L.A. firefighter) turns down $700, $800 and a grand for Curtain #3’s contents…there’s another home entertainment package back there, but it’s of the ZONK variety. After Shawn sees her movie, she thinks that there’s a bad hot tub behind Curtain #1, so she quickly sells it for $700…but it was a good one from Jacuzzi valued at $5,970.

The last deal with the red and the green small boxes goes to Wendy. She gets $600 to begin with.

Red: HALF
Green: ALL-IN


Wendy keeps the six bills because she has six kids, meaning Markeeda will be going for the Big Deal of the Day. Let’s see what she won’t be getting:

Red: HP laptop ($930)
Green: Weekend Palm Desert trip ($3,568)


THE BIG DEAL: The $20,860 Big Deal Markeeda could win today is presumably the Chrysler Sebring. Her last pick of the day is Door #2. The Bank Vault was behind Door #1, which today contained…$4,278. Door #2…MAKES HER THE FIRST BIG DEAL WINNER OF THE WEEK! The bad news is that the BD does NOT have the Sebring or any car whatsoever, but the good news is that she’s won trips to Stove, VT and the Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa, along with some skiing and snorkeling equipment! BTW, Door #3 had a black extra-capacity gas range and some pizza-making accessories, which was a prize package worth $1,850.

IMPORTANT NOTES: After this episode was finished, it was revealed that Sandra was declared INELIGIBLE, so she has been STRIPPED of all her winnings and OWP is therefore declared a NO CONTEST. On the positive side, it was also announced that the ARP of $26,716 for the Taurus was WRONG- it was supposed to have been $26,739, so Raynee has gotten herself a TECHNICAL WIN! With the $2 in gas money she would have gotten had the LS board been set up correctly, her actual total in cash and merhcandise is $27,740!

TODAY'S PG RECORD: 3-2, 1 NC (includes one TW)

Tamara puts her first $2,000 in her LEATHER WALLET.

Campbell's Jackpot/Prize Puzzle Round category is and out on the wheel this time is a $5,000 trip to the Topsl Beach & Raquet Resort in Destin, FL. Tamara gets the Million Dollar Wedge right off the bat with two R's, but she then loses it right back to a Bankrupt on her second spin of the wheel. Secondly, Paul calls three N's for the Hayneedle.com gift tag, two T's for $1,000 and we have...

_ / _ _ _ T / _ _

_ _ _ R T / _ N

_ _ N / _ R _ N _ _ _ _ _

SOLE BANKRUPT: Tamara
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $5,500

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: CN6664740 (Coila N. from Ohio)

The Round 2 puzzle category is Family. He starts off with a $450 R and the buying of three E's, but he then Bankrupts to lose the remaining $200. Second, Ashley calls three S's for $1,350 and buys two A's, then she calls two L's for another $600 before ringing in with this board...

_ E _ _ S / &

S E R E _ A

_ _ L L _ A _ S

...she solves the tennis stars VENUS & SERENA WILLIAMS for another $1,700 and $2,700 total.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Paul

Meineke Mystery Round category is Before & After. Ashley gets us going with two T's for $1,800 and buys three E's, but she then hits Lose a Turn. Second, Tamara calls two R's for $900, buys an A, but she then calls the first dud of the night in C while on the Mystery Wedge next to the former MDW. Third, Paul calls a $3,500 N and purchases an I and a pair of O's to clean out the vowels. After he puts up a couple L's for an extra $1,600, we have...

R O L E

_ O _ E L

T R A I N / _ E T

SOLE DUD: C (Tamara)
SOLE LAT: Ashley

The $3,000 Toss-Up's identity is the Proper Name of a major-league sports team:

C I N _ _ N N _ T I

_ E D S

Paul scores another hit with the CINCINNATI REDS to move up to $16,182!

Next category is Quotation, but this one isn't as big like the past ones. Anyway, he begins with a couple T's for $1,600 but he then buys a dud vowel in A. Second, Ashley calls five N's for $2,500 but she also duds out while buying the O. Third, Tamara lights up double G's for a C-note, purchases a quartet of I's, inserts a $500 W but she then lands on LAT. Paul then tries to solve this puzzle immediately afterwards...

W I N N I N G / I _ N ' T

_ _ _ _ _ T _ I N G

...and he does with "WINNING ISN'T EVERYTHING", which is the first half of the famous quote from the legendary NFL coach Vince Lombardi for $1,350 more and $17,532 altogether.

DUDS: A (Paul), O (Ashley)
SOLE LAT: Tamara

Let's try and solve a Show Biz puzzle next. Ashley's first in line with a $500 T and an E buy before calling a dud in S. Tamara secondly calls another dud in R. Third, Paul lights up a $300 N and buys twin A's, then he calls the same number of M's for another grand and...

A N _ M A T E _

_ _ _ M

...he solves ANIMATED FILM to add $1,050 to his haul, which now stands at $18,582!

DUDS: $300 R (Tamara), $500 S (Ashley)

People is the next subject on the evening's docket. After Tamara puts a $500 T on the board, she buys an E and an A and calls a $300 M before we finally hear that Speed-Up Bell. The setup now:

_ _ _ _ _

T E A M

Each of the remaining four consonants are each worth $1,700. She next makes an R appear...

R _ _ _ _

T E A M

...and she gets RUGBY TEAM to double her final third-place sum to four large. Ashley leaves with $2,700 and Paul's our champion this evening with $18,582 in cash and other loot!

So far, $25,282 in cash and prizes has been awarded tonight during one of those rare maingames with nine puzzles played.

PERFECT ROUND

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding the MDW): $200

Maxwell House Big Money Round: I hope Paul Martinez can continue to prove he's great playing this game. He spins the E in AMERICA'S and the category is Thing. Starting with:

Her suggested wagers were either no more than $4,399 or at least $4,601…and she took the former route at $4K, leaving her with $4,400 and likely sending her back to the ESPN studios with $25K for her charity. Neil Patrick Harris responded with “What is ‘Let It Be’?”…NOT it, either. The right song was “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”. That costs him…$4K, giving him the $50K win with $9K!


The first round of competition concludes on Friday night with a group that includes the host of “The Fashion Show”, Isaac Mizrahi!

Apparently, One Wrong Price is a No Contest - Sandra was found ineligible, according to an alert watcher within Golden-Road.

The post in question was "the second contestant", but Sandra both played second and was called down second, so there's no confusion here.

Apparently, the cash equivalent of the Taurus was also awarded because the price was wrong...again.

Maybe Kathy should reconsider her stance against Golden-Road - it would avoid these incidents.
