TPIR: Monday morning’s First Four is rounded out by Marisa Pizzonia, Jason Lindo, Deborah King (who is an Army girl) and Tammy Sibsley. The first IUFB is a pair of surfboards/wetsuits (Rachel behind splitting sign).
Deborah plays Dice Game for the Chevrolet HHR (Std., Tire, AT, Prot)(Manuela at Door #3; Lanisha pushes the dice table). If she can survive the back-to-back 1s of the $21,134 HHR, she’ll probably win…
Second number rolled: 1- CORRECT
Third number rolled: 3- NO; HIGHER
Fourth number rolled: 1- NO; HIGHER FREEBIE
Last number rolled: 4- CORRECT
…but it does NOT happen. Had the second and third rolls been reversed, we would’ve had the second-ever EXACTA in this Pricing Game.
Fifth is Megan Edwards-Meyers and IUFB #2 is a Lenovo laptop (Lanisha & Manuela).
Jason plays One Right Price for some Cape Spade handbags (Manuela) and a tool set (Lanisha). He tells Rachel to place today’s ORP of $2,075 on the tools…but they’re $2,996.
Contestant #6 is Sheila Townsend and the third IUFB is a Napoleon BBQ (Rachel behind rising sign).
Tammy plays Check-Out for a home theater package that includes three chairs, a DirecTV system and the JVC 46” LCD HDTV, all worth $7,492 (Lanisha at Door #3). The five grocery items are the Strawberry Splash Gushers, a three-pack of Fleischmann’s RapidRise Highly Active Yeast, Pepperidge Farm Milanos, Mt. Olive Kosher Dill Spears and Gold Bond Foot Cream.
Gushers, cookies & pickles- $3 each
TOTAL GUESS: $18
Gushers: $2.99 (she only missed this by a penny!)
ACTUAL TOTAL: $19.35
DIFFERENCE: $1.35- WIN!
SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Jason ($849): Three Quarters
Deborah ($1,544): 45 + 80 = OVER BY A QUARTER
Tammy ($8,692): 70 + 95 = OVER; JASON ADVANCES
Coming on down seventh is Daisy Loney and the fourth IUFB is a Nokia Smartphone w/ the one-year nationwide calling plan (Rachel).
Sheila goes to the Safe Crackers safe (Lanisha) to try to unlock her way to a trio of black Jenn-Air kitchen appliances (Manuela) and a selection of Zojirushi kitchen appliances (Rachel), all totaling $6,897.
NUMBERS IN APPLIANCES: 0, 5 & 8
She sets her combination at $850…and that’s it!
Heading on down next from the U.S. Army is Gabriel Howard and the next-to-last IUFB is a Stamina Products, Inc. pilates machine (Manuela behind the Giant Price Tag).

3. Toiletry bag
ARP: $17- SELECTS CARD #19
She’s going for the car with her three cards. The first one has an R, the second one has an A…AND SHE WINS BACKWARDS WITH THE LAST CARD!
Video Bonus #2: The entire segment that includes a very exciting Spelling Bee playing
A 4-2 day could be completed by our last player, Michael Dowd, and the final IUFB is a pendulum swing w/ canopy from Sunset Swings (Lanisha at Door #3).
Megan, who’s a stay-at-home mom, plays Freeze Frame for a trip to an executive room at the Hotel Mela in New York City and a $1,000 gift card to Neiman-Marcus w/ a personal shopper being provided (Manuela at Door #4). The most logical prices on that clicking board this time are $5,033, $6,322, $7,698, $8,563 and $9,812, but she goofs with $3,385 instead. ARP: $6,322.
