5/6/2010 Results

LMAD: We quickly get to the couple of Alejandro (dressed as a piece of bread with some crunchy peanut butter on it) & Nivia (dressed as a piece of bread with jelly on it), who are playing the Four Keys Deal for the Honda Fit (Curtain #2). They pick Key #3, and the Sure Thing Jackpot begins with a living room group that includes a Herman Miller glass-top coffee table courtesy of highbrowfurniture.com, all worth $4,172 (Curtain #1). With no hesitation, thanks mainly to Nivia, they take the furniture as their 10th anniversary gift...and they would've been one off to the right- Key #4 actually opened the car!

The second contestant is Jamie (dressed as a fitness instructor), who sees a bronze envelope with "You win 3,000..." on it. After she gives Stephanie (dressed as a kissing booth) that, she has the following inside the blue small box (Jonathan)...a sad meal. Stephanie secondly turns down the big box...which had an iMac computer system worth $2,099. Finally, she turns down an $800 buyout offer. Inside that envelope is three thousand...DOLLARS!

Contestant #4 is Daniel, all the way from Australia (who's dressed as a traffic light). He's the first to play the iPad Deal (Tiffany). His book clue is "The Call of the Wild" by Jack London, but he gives it back for what's behind Curtain #2...the good news is that he doesn't have to pay a great deal of taxes, but the bad news is that he's getting a log flume ride. Besides the $499 iPad, that will cost him a trip to the Spring Creek Ranch in Jackson Hole worth $5,107.

The next two traders are Janelle (dressed as a Hawaiian) and Abigail (who's wearing a dress with several fish on it). They see Tiffany with these four items on the big blue table- a Barbie doll, an iPhone, a can of Diet Pepsi and a Snickers bar. In each round, one woman will guess the year when a product was nationally introduced, and the other will decide if the actual year is Before or After. The winner of each round will get $400.

BARBIE:
Janelle: 1925
Abigail: AFTER
YEAR: 1959 (Abigail: $400)

iPHONE:
Abigail: 2004
Janelle: AFTER
YEAR: 2007 (Janelle: $400)

DIET PEPSI:
Janelle: 1983
Abigail: BEFORE
YEAR: 1964 (Abigail: $800)

SNICKERS:
Abigail: 1962
Janelle: BEFORE

YEAR: 1930 (Janelle: $800)

Afterwards, Janelle takes The Big Risk with Curtain #3...and she now has a digital fitness package that features the 16 GB iPod Nano, a one-year Gold's Gym membership, some Nike running shoes and the $500 iTunes gift card, all worth $1,413. Abigail also goes with TBR, but with Curtain #1...and she's won a Strong spa worth $6,999! PERFECT DEAL!

Lavon (dressed as a graduate) is the next trader, and she can either have the two blue small boxes (Jonathan) or Curtain #2. She takes the middle curtain...but she's ELIMINATED with the broken TVs. That prevents her from going to the Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort, which was a vacation worth $5,736. With that, she leaves with $100.

Jonathan then brings the iPad back in play for Whitney to possibly have (who's dressed as a ladybug and has a torn ACL in her right leg). After seeing that her clue is "The Time Machine" by Herbert George Wells, she keeps it...but inside the blue small box is a ZONK time capsule, so the iPad is all she gets. If she had instead chosen Curtain #1, she might have taken home a Michael Greene & Co. 14 karat white gold necklace valued at $2,445.

THE BIG DEAL: After giving her hot tub back, Abigail goes for today's Big Deal with a price tag of $22,570. She picks Door #3, and we begin with the middle door, which had a trio of stainless-steel kitchen appliances and a blue washer/dryer, a prize package worth...$7,483. Does she win the grand prize...NO, she misses it completely, making Alejandro & Nivia the day's top winners. She goes home with a 42" LCD HDTV, a Blu-Ray Disc speaker system and a Nintendo Wii package totalling $2,610. That means there will be NO Jeep Compass Sport FWD (Std., CVT, #25E) from La Brea Chrysler Jeep in her garage.

TPIR: So far, this has NOT been the best of weeks at The Bob Barker Studio- we've had a Winless Show and two Double Overbids- thus, things have been falling apart since Cliff Hangers was won to close Monday's Pricing Games. Let's see if things will turn around this morning on Episode 5151K.

The first four players are Heather Haggert, Racae Minor, Michael Peagant and Breeanna Sams. IUFB #1 is an iMac computer system (Manuela in the clam).

Breeanna: $2,000
Michael: $1,750
Heather: $2,100
Racae: BUCK

ARP: $1,999

Since Breeanna went over by a buck, Michael will instead be playing Pl!nko. Today's SPs are modeled by Rachel.

3. Two-quart tea kettle

1. $1,000 (Left)
2. $1,000 (Right)
3. $1,000 (Right)

Isaac: $1,200
Heather: $800
Racae: $900
Breanna: $901

Isaac, a nurse, plays Money Game for the Element (Std., Link)(Manuela at Door #2). Board:

(51)(65)(42)

(39)(95)(80)

MIDDLE NUMBER: 1 ($ _ _ , 1 _ _)

He banks $22 before getting 23 as the front of the car
($ 2 3 , 1 _ _)...but Isaac's way off the mark with his last three choices of 80, 65 and 95, for a total of $262. ARP: $23,142.

Sixth is Kristin Skifgen and the third IUFB is sailboarding equipment (Lanisha at Door #3).

Kristin: $1,200
Heather: $1,000
Racae: $1,400
Breanna: BUCK

ARP: $1,599

Racae could be celebrating her birthday very nicely if she wins Two for the Price of One for a gas grill from The Outdoor Great Room Company (Rachel) and a Beachcomber Hot Tub (Manuela), all worth $7,392. Board for the grill:

First number: 6 or 8?
Second number: 5 or 9?
Last number: 4 or 8?

She chooses to have the first digit lit up for free, which is 6. After that, she locks in $694...

$ 6 9 4

...NO.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Racae ($1,599): $.85
Isaac ($3,280): Dime + 90 = WINS ANOTHER $1,000!
Michael ($5,152): 55 + 30 = $.85

In Isaac's Bonus Spin...$.55.

Trying to become the first outright winner of the day is Travis Hammermail and the fourth IUFB is some office furniture (Manuela behind the splitting sign).

Travis: $950
Breanna: $1,200
Kristin: $675
Heather: $671

ARP: $1,169

Travis from Canada, after another slight overbid by Breanna ($31 this time), plays Squeeze Play for the Ski-Doo snowmobile (Rachel at Door #3). Board:

66899

He removes the second six for a guess of $6,899...it was a toss-up between $6,699 and $6,899, but the price he chose is incorrect.

Going to the green podium third is Wendy Winchester (who's wearing a Pl!nko T-shirt- too bad) and the next IUFB is a selection of Spring coats/jackets (All models at the turntable).

Wendy: $1,100
Breanna: $850
Kristin: $900
Heather: $901

ARP: $1,708

By keeping that green spot hot, Wendy will play Pass the Buck for the Fit (Std., Link, Security) worth $15,721 (Lanisha).

Breanna: $1,000
Kristin: $1,100

1. Motorscooter- $2,899 ($4,101 left)
2. Stereo- $2,959 ($1,142 left)

Her last pick is the gym...










































...IT'S $1,400, SO WE DEFINITELY DON'T GET SKUNKED TODAY!!! The Bobby Brown stuff was $802, BTW.

All I would've done with today's lineup is switched the last two games.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Travis ($1,169): 40 + 30 = $.70
Wendy ($1,708): Half-Dollar + 85 = OVER

Travis solves the Chicago WHITE SOX for $1,000.

$25,000 SPIN ID #1: JY01622

And now, let's meet him and both of the female contestants:

$2,000 Toss-Up category is Occupation:

Sorry, Travis- Jen beats you to the punch in buzzing in and solving DISTRICT ATTORNEY for $2,000.

After a trip to The Drake Hotel worth $5,100 appears on the wheel, the IHOP Jackpot Round category is Landmark. Jen starts with three N's for a $1,000 Garrett Popcorn package and three T's for $2,400, then she buys two E's, calls an H for the Million Dollar Wedge and purchases three I's before lighting up four A's while on Free Play. After she calls a $500 L while on Jackpot, we have...

_ ' H A _ E

I N T E _ N A T I _ N A L

A I _ _ _ _ T

PERFECT ROUND

Tonight's Prize Puzzle Round category is Phrase. We begin with Travis, who calls four T's for $3,600 and buys an E, then he calls a $3,500 S and buys an I before calling two H's for another $600 and purchasing three A's. Following that, he calls two L's for another $1,200 and buys four O's before we see this...

_ H A T ' S / A L L

T H E / _ O _ _ O T I O _

A _ O _ T ?

...WHAT'S ALL THE COMMOTION ABOUT? This guy winning another $7,900 and a $9,600 trip to the Grand Velas All Suites & Spa Resort in Nuevo Vallarta, giving him a new haul of $18,500 in cash and Mexico!

SECOND PERFECT ROUND IN A ROW!

TRIP SPIN ID: SM9276461 (Sherri M. from Florida)

$25,000 SPIN ID #2: CL1886997

Meineke Mystery Round category is Before & After. Doria, who's well behind right now and has yet to get off the zero mark, opens this round with a $550 T, a $900 H and she buys three E's and two A's before calling a dud vowel in I while on FP. She next calls an $800 R but she then hits the Bankrupt next to the $3,500 wedge to lose $1,750. Jen then lands on the Mystery Wedge in between $300 and $800 and calls a D. Believe it or not, she's putting that MDW on the line by flipping it over...and $10,000's back there! After she lights up a couple of O's while on FP, she puts up a $600 L, BUT SHE THEN SPINS UP THE OTHER NATURAL BANKRUPT TO LOSE BOTH THE $10,000 AND MILLION DOLLAR WEDGES (as well as the $600 on the side)!!! OUCH. Over to Travis, who calls a pair of F's for a grand and buys the last remaining vowel of U, then he lights up a $600 C, a $550 K, an M for the Wild Card and we have the following...

L E A D E R

O F / T H E

_ A C K

O F / _ U M

...he solves LEADER OF THE PACK OF GUM for an additional $1,900 and $20,400 total.

SOLE DUD: I (Doria)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Doria, Jen)

The last Toss-Up topic of the night is Food & Drink:

_ _ _ _ - _ _ _ H

_ _ Z Z _

Travis knows that DEEP-DISH PIZZA is loved in Chicago to move up to $23,400 in cash and vacation!

It's Speed-Up Round Time with the category being a Phrase...and the consonants are worth $1,600 a pop. After Jen has a D appear...

T _ _ _ / T H _ / _ _ N _ _

_ N D / R _ N

...as the Steve Miller Band might say, she'll "TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN", which is an extra $6,400, for a very nice second-place score of $18,600 in cash and merchandise! Doria gets the $1,000 consolation check and Travis' our champion with $23,400 in cash and Mexico!

Thus far, 43 grand in cash and prizes has been awarded tonight.

SOLE DUD: S (Travis)

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH (excluding the MDW): $12,350

Maxwell House Big Money Round: With the WC in play here, Travis spins the C and the category is Thing. Starting with:

_ _ T _ _

_ _ _ E R

He first calls P, M, H and I before calling G with the WC...

P _ T I _

_ _ _ E R

...he only gets PATIO. It was PATIO COVER and he is NOT the second $30,000 winner of the week (that also makes him the seocnd player this week to miss out on that amount). He leaves with $23,400 in cash and trip.
