LMAD: Let’s conclude what has been a sub-par week on a good note, perhaps with the all-female team of Claire (dressed as a clown) & Cynthia (dressed as a flower). Here’s what they get to choose from:
Bankroll: $20 BILL ON THE OUTSIDE
Curtain #1: FOR THE HOME
Curtain #2: AWAY FROM IT ALL
Curtain #3: ???
After they initially choose Curtain #1, Gene (dressed as a gas worker) gets a chance to win a Benjamin if he can guess the total amount of cash in the bankroll within $50 (originally $25). He guesses $300. Inside the bankroll was another…$1,000 in Benjamins, so with the correct answer being $1,020, he’s well out of range. The ladies secondly trade for the middle curtain…and behind the first one was a sauna package worth $1,821. Finally, since they’re on their own, Cynthia trades for Curtain #3. Behind Claire’s curtain is…a trip to Geneva on the Lake in New York Wine Country worth $6,426! As for Cynthia…she’ll have to settle for a rocking cow and horse.
Let’s go from two women to two men with Sean (dressed as a fisherman) & Gregory (who’s wearing a Raiders replica jersey). They’re both asked to take out all the money they have in their wallets. Whoever has more will get $1,000 and a chance to move on in this deal; the other one will leave with a Benjamin.
Sean: $12 (plus some foreign money that will NOT COUNT)
Sean can either keep his grand or give it back for a chance to win a KIA Rio LX (Std., AT) worth $15,185 (Curtain #1). He’s playing this show’s version of the “Sale of the Century Winner’s Board”. There are 15 cards. Behind 12 of them are matching pairs for $100, $250, $500, $1,500, $2,500 and the car, while the other three have ZONKs. If he matches any of those prizes before ZONKING out, the one he matches up first is what he will win. Sean decides to do it.
1. #7- $250
2. #12- $100
3. #15- ZONK
5. #10- WINS $250
The CARS were behind #4 & #13. Unfortunately, this is the last automobile that will be offered this week, so we finally have the first-ever WEEKLY CAR SHUTOUT.
Gary (who is dressed as a member of a barbershop quartet) is the next contestant. He’s shown a golden envelope with either a $250 or $2,500 check inside, and he can either have that or Curtain #2. He goes with the curtain…and because he gave up a $250 check, he’s won a tool package that includes a DeWalt table saw worth $2,743. This deal will continue.
Next is a couples deal with Erin (dressed as a white kitchen range) & Kyle (dressed as a baker), who have been married for 4.5 years. Tiffany Coyne comes out with a Burbury murse and purse. Kyle begins the action of this deal by electing to keep his murse. If he had traded it for the blue small box (Jonathan)…he would have won an HP laptop and a pair of Dr. Dre headphones worth $2,400. His murse contains…$800. Erin, however, gives back her purse for what’s at Curtain #2…the Pier 1 Imports bedroom and a Magnavox 40” LCD HDTV, all worth $2,999. Her purse had half the money of Kyle’s murse. Finally, the couple decides to walk from this behind Curtain #3…42 years of bad luck!
The next deal has three participants- Jamie (who’s wearing an afro), Lauren & Cheryl (who’s wearing a pink flower on the right edge of her head). As it turns out, they’re playing the Red/Green Cans Deal for a trip to the St. James’ Club in Antigua valued at $7,771 (Curtain #1).
Jamie: #2- $500
Lauren: #3- $1,000
Cheryl: #1- DUD
While Lauren bails out with her thou, Jamie picks the second green can…and quadruples her cash! The vacation was in the first one.
The last regulation trader of the week is Michele (dressed as a lobster chef). Her decision is to either keep the check that’s inside the silver envelope, which either has $350 or $3,500 on it, or purchase what’s behind Curtain #3. She tries the curtain, and the check was valued at…$350, winning her a Bull BBQ island worth $4,846! PERFECT DEAL!
THE BIG DEAL: If Claire wins the Big Deal of the Day, she’ll win $20,694 in cash and/or merchandise. She thinks it’s behind Door #1…but it does NOT happen for her. At least she traded up a bit to a trio of stainless steel kitchen appliances totaling $8,492.
Door #2: Samsung 40” LCD HDTV and Blu-Ray Disc home theater ($2,400)
Door #3: Trip to the Treasure Island Resort in Fiji and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle
TPIR: Episode 5124K is the second annual salute to The Academy of Country Music Awards, and filling out Contestant’s Row first are Elizabeth Karlock, Justin Ehlers, Alison Wilson and Pamela Claraty. The first IUFB at Door #3 is presented by the country-singing duo Bomshel, which is a stereo system that includes the 160 GB iPod and a wide array of country music CDs.
Elizabeth plays Switch? for a three-piece bar set marked at $5,595 (Lanisha) and an UltraPin pinball machine marked at $6,737 (Amber). She leaves them as they are, disagreeing with the audience…but the Peanut Gallery was correct.
Adela Guardado is Contestant #5 and the second IUFB, coming out on the train (Lanisha), is a Honda CRF100 off-road motorcycle (Amber).
Pamela plays ½ Off, with the six SPs being modeled by country singer Blake Shelton and Lanisha!

Coming on down sixth is Lauren Wong and the third IUFB is the Samsung 52” LCD HDTV (Lanisha behind GPT).
After Justin does a Rich Fields impression, he plays the Money Game for the Ford Focus S (Std., Prot)(Amber at Door #2). Board:
MIDDLE NUMBER: 2 ($ _ _ , 2 _ _)
After picking 19 and 18 for $37 to begin this playing, he gets the front of the car with 17 ($ 1 7 , 2 _ _). His next choice is 54…good guess, but there’s a dollar sign back there, taking the bank to $91. He finally chooses 79…that wins him the $17,279 Focus! He knew about the paint/fabric protection rule- well done!
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Elizabeth ($1,813): 55 + 40 = $.95
Pamela ($12,699): 35 + 60 = $.95
Justin ($20,268): $.95
TRIPLE THREAT SPIN-OFF:
Justin: WINS ANOTHER $1,000 AND SHOWCASE BERTH!
Justin’s Bonus Spin is worth…a quarter.

Trevor plays Gas Money for the Nissan Cube (Std., Designer, Wheels, Guards, Lighting)(Rachel). Board:
1. $16,835- $1,000; GOES ON
2. $22,765- $2,000 (TRIPLE); GOES ON
3. $18,420- LOSS
Rest of the board:
Rich last says the magic words to Jacob Bowers (with a musical note replacing the "Price" dollar sign around his calldown window) and the final IUFB is some Justin & Wrangler Western wear (Amber behind splitting sign). Alison has been stuck in CR the whole time, but she does get to make the final bid.
ARP: $1,831, so Alison escapes!
She then plays Side By Side (this is the second aired episode in a row to have this Pricing Game played) for a trip to the Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson, AZ (Rachel at Door #2). Board:
Alison locks in $6,385…NO.
My lineup today:

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Trevor ($696): 30 + 95 = OVER

Adela ($11,538): 65 + 95 = OVER
Alison needs to win the $25,000 in her Bonus Spin in order to become the Top Winner in the Friday Showcase Round…but she also spins a quarter, so the Runner-Up Showcase podium is hers.
The first Showcase is all about the world of Country. First, you could start a country music band with these musical instruments (Amber & Rachel at Door #1). Second, you might be getting two tickets to a Carrie Underwood “Play On Tour” event at the Hollywood Bowl (Rachel next to Door #1)! Third, here’s a vacation that I doubt Rick would’ve liked- one to the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Nashville (Rachel next to Door #1; includes performances by Dave Matthews & Miranda Lambert). And finally, you could be going on a four-night Sailing Southern Ground Cruise to the Grand Cayman Islands (Rachel next to Door #1; includes a performance by the Zac Brown Band).

Meineke Mystery Round subject is Same Name. First is William, who calls an R for the train trip but then a dud of T. Second, Vicki hits a Bankrupt. Third, Laurie calls a $500 N but she then purchases a dud vowel of E. After William loses his trip to the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge, Vicki’s back in control with two S’s for $600, but she duds out just as quick with the A. After Laurie calls another dud in L, William puts up an I while on Free Play but he then Bankrupts naturally; that’s his second Bankrupt of the round. Vicki next calls a $350 D and buys three O’s to close the vowel department, but she then also gets her second Bankrupt of this round to lose $450. Afterwards, Laurie lights up a $300 G, but her next call of F while on the Wild Card is a dud. William follows that with a $600 M, a $900 W and a C for a gift tag from The Cheesecake Factory…
