LMAD: First is a couples deal with Elsie (dressed as a pinata hitter) & Steven (dressed as a pinata). We start with a box of pretzels (Jonathan Mangum), which has some money attached to it. But they quickly give it back for what's behind Curtain #1...those pretzels would've been worth $600 to them, but they do win the Samsung washer/dryer package that includes a year's supply of Seven Generation detergent from AjMadison worth $2,098. They then decide to walk with that prize. Here's what they could've had:

Curtain #2 (Tiffany Coyne): Home entertainment center, including the Samsung 55" LED HDTV ($4,428)
Blue small box (Jonathan): A cake with several broken cup pieces on it

(Note: Elsie wanted to go for the box, but her husband said otherwise.)

Time now for another installment of the Poetry Corner. Adrienne (who's dressed as gum on a chair) hears the following from Jonathan & Wayne Brady:

She likes to chew gum and chew it all day,
She likes to chew it in her own special way.
She likes to chew it on the move with wheels,
She likes to chew it in her mouth she does for you.
I saw the flavors in there, yummy, yum, yum,
You don't understand, my bum went off some.
But you see, like an old settler on a Conastogan,
One cannot be bragging if she doesn't use a tiny one,
It might be bigger...

She turns down $500 and $700 for...a ZONK wagon attached to a rocking horse.

Let's see if Ryan can do better after listening to this:

With a man so wild and a roar out of sight,
You don't understand, he can roar through the night.
How does he do it so fast on these wheels?
He looks like Chewbacca ready for a meal.
He looks through the land and one catches his eye,
In the back of his mind when he's on his ride,
22 CC's, is that an engine; callabration?
Why did you stop rapping; why the hesistation?
Because what he could win is something he might like,
Oh yeah, that's right, it could be a...

The bike in question is behind the big box, but he sells it for $900 after rejecting $500 and $700...and the one he misses out on is of the dirt kind from Honda worth $3,649.

Deal #3 is Now Serving. The first number Jonathan pulls out is #90, which belongs to Kevin (who is a full-time college student dressed as a court jester). He can either keep the base $500 or buy one of the three small boxes. Two of them have $250 inside, while the third contains $5,000. He goes for it with the green one furthest to the right...and he loses half his money. He was way off, because the big money was in the red one. To be continued...

The fourth deal is called Don't Blame Me, and here come Michael (dressed as a graduate) and Heather (dressed as a biker). They both begin with a $999 Macbook inside the blue small box (Jonathan). First, Michael forces Heather to trade her computer for what's behind Curtain #2...the TuffStuff home gym and the Samsung 37" LCD HDTV worth $3,149. Second, Heather prevents Michael from trading to this behind Curtain #1...a backyard BBQ lounge worth $3,305.
Finally, Mike takes The Big Risk with the big box...but he ZONKS OUT with a BROKEN organ.

After that, Christian & Renee (who have been married for 25 years) play Find the Aces for either a trip to the Becuti Beach Resort in Aruba worth $7,066 (Curtain #1) or the Chevrolet Aveo (Curtain #3). Renee will be doing all the card-picking.

1. #1- ACE OF HEARTS
2. #2- BANDIT
3. #2- ACE OF DIAMONDS; QUITS WITH TRIP
FINAL CARD: #1- BANDIT

The other number called today in Now Serving is #238, and the lady sitting in that seat is Rachel (who is dressed as the Queen of Hearts). She can either keep the $600 or buy Curtain #2. Rachel risks it...and it pays off to the tune of a living room that includes the Sony 40" LCD HDTV worth $4,173, which she then trades right back for a chance at the Big Deal of the Day!

THE BIG DEAL: A $23,945 grand prize is behind one of those three doors, and since that number worked for her the first time, she's picking Door #2. After her boyfriend Jack (dressed as the King of Hearts) joins her as a good luck charm, she learns that...she DIDN'T trade up to the Big Deal, but she does improve considerably to a vacation at The Merrion in Dublin valued at $13,500!

Door #1: Mazda3 MAZDASPEED Hatchback (which was revealed second)
Door #3: $2,316 in the Bank Vault

Tonight's Consolation Prize: Capresso machine

WOF: People is the opening Toss-Up category:

J _ _ I O _ S

& / _ _ _ _ _ R S

Albert & Christina solve JUNIORS & SENIORS for $1,000.

$25,000 SPIN ID #1:
KO3679840

Let’s meet all three of tonight’s father/daughter teams right now:

Albert & Christina Laura (Burbank)- Albert’s an inside salesperson for an electrical distributor in L.A., while Christina’s graduating from John Burrows High School, hopefully with a 4.0 GPA
Caitlin & Glenn Natalin (Loma Linda, CA)- Caitlin’s a high school senior, while Glenn’s an agent for a large insurance company
Paul (Irvine, CA) & Rachel (Laguna & Negil, CA) Gibbs- Rachel’s a soon-to-be graduate from Cal State-Long Beach with a BA in Psychology, while Paul’s the general manager at a hotel

I hope our female graduates have been studying Geography recently, because the $2,000 Toss-Up category is On the Map:

_ _ _ T E R

I _ L A _ D

Just as time expires for her team, Caitlin completely misses the mark with WATER INLAND, because that would actually fall under Place or Thing.

E _ S T E R

I _ L A _ D

Albert & Christina triple up with EASTER ISLAND.

After a pair of trips to Smugglers’ Notch Vermont worth $10,600 go onto the wheel, the Eggland’s Best Jackpot Round category is Before & After, with a period at the end of the first line. Albert & Christina immediately hit Jackpot and call a $500 R, but they then get the left Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge to lose that much money right back. Secondly, Caitlin & Glenn call a $300 M, buy an A, call a dud vowel in I while on Free Play and a $450 S, then they buy three E’s to clean out the vowels before lighting up a $500 N and C, a $400 L and a $500 P. At this point, we have:

M R .

C L E A N

S _ E E P

They solve MR. CLEAN SWEEP for $2,150.

SOLE DUD:
I (Caitlin & Glenn)
SOLE BANKRUPT:
Albert & Christina
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT:
$8,650

The next category is Show Biz and it’s a big puzzle. Caitlin & Glenn, who won the first main round, start this one with four S’s for $14,000 and buy three A’s and four E’s, then they call two T’s for another grand and a $900 H before purchasing an O. But they then spin the regular Bankrupt in between $600 and $900 to lose $15,150! Ouch. Second, Paul & Rachel call a $3,500 R (which we first heard from Rachel; Paul wanted to say P) and three P’s for another $1,500, but that’s followed by the other Bankrupt of the MDW to take away five grand. Afterwards, Albert & Christina put up a $600 C, an I while on FP and two C’s for another $600 before they buzz in with this…

P O P / M _ S I C

S T A R S

T H E / _ _ A C _

E _ E _ / P E A S

…and solve POP MUSIC STARS THE BLACK EYED PEAS to inch up to five large.

BANKRUPTS: 2 (Caitlin & Glenn, Paul & Rachel)

$25,000 SPIN ID #2:
KC03156

IHOP Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round subject is Song Lyrics. Paul & Rachel are first at bat with two S’s for $7,000, the purchase of three A’s and three N’s for another $900 prior to them landing on the Mystery Wedge next to the MDW. They call four T’s and take a C-note apiece for each one of them (good, because they would’ve Bankrupted out for the second round in a row). After that, they call a couple of C’s for the Image Entertainment gift tag and here’s the board…

_ / C A N ‘ T / _ _ T / N _

S A T _ S _ A C T _ _ N

They nail “I CAN’T GET NO SATISFACTION” by The Rolling Stones for $11,650, the gift tag and a $10,000 pair of vacations to the Hilton Waikoloa Village, putting them on the board in a big way with $22,650 in cash and prizes!

PERFECT ROUND

TRIP SPIN ID:

The $3,000 Toss-Up topic is Place:

_ _ R _ _ _

Paul & Rachel cross this TWO-WAY STREET to reach the $25,650 mark.

Speed-Up Round category is Phrase and consonants are each worth…the big one- $6,000 each! This puzzle ends with a question mark. After Caitlin & Glenn light up a trio of Y’s…

W _ L L / Y _ _ / S _ _ N

_ Y / Y _ _ R _ _ _ _ ?

…Glenn’s incorrect on the first line with WILL YOU SOON, probably costing them 30 big ones; that's their second incorrect response of the night. A couple turns later, Albert & Christina make a B pop up…

W _ I L L / Y _ _ / S _ _ N

M Y / Y _ _ R B _ _ _

…they ask that question “WILL YOU SIGN MY YEARBOOK? for an additional 12 grand and 17 in all for them to take home! Caitlin & Glenn leave with $2,150 and Paul & Rachel win with $25,650 in cash and merchandise!

Tonight’s combined maingame winnings is $44,800.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: For unknown reasons, today's scheduled episode of "The Price is Right" has been postponed and a repeat will air in its place. As of right now, the episode in question has been rescheduled for August 31st.)

All shows get a 7 out of 10 rating from me today.

Speculation has been rampant on various boards a trip was offered, and the airing was inappropriate because of location because of current events -- boards are saying Nashville (flooding), Louisiana (oil spill), or Thailand (political unrest).

I'm not sure if you realize this, but I think I was the first one on the Game Show Forum that thought that Nashville was the main problem.
