LMAD: Today's first two traders are Shawnee (who's wearing a long-haired wig) & Earl (dressed as a fashion designer). They're each given an Amazon Kindle by Alison Fiori and $500. First, Earl's book clue for the small box (Alison) is "The Wizard of Oz", and he's taking that...inside is a $4,700 14 karat white gold emerald necklace from the Kazangian Bros.! Shawnee's Curtain #1 clue is "Animal Farm". At the risk of getting knocked out of the game by some live animal (s), she's giving back the Kindle and the money for hopefully some kind of car named after an animal...guess what- the Volkswagen Beetle's back there, and this one's worth $19,390! PERFECT DEAL!
The third contestant today is Elizabeth (dressed as Major Trouble from the Army). She's shown a big portfolio (Jonathan Mangum) with 5,000 of something in it. She starts off by handing control of Curtain #2 to Sheela, but this lady sells it for $1,000 (originally $500)...and she just threw away the same amount of heads of foreign cabbage! To be continued...
Three people are fittingly needed for Deal #3, which is called Don't Blame Me. They are Nicole (dressed as a cowgirl), Alvin (dreessed as a hippie) & Natalie (birthday girl). First comes the choice of $700 or the small box (Alison) for Nicole to give to Alvin. She chooses the cash...in the box was an HP notebook computer worth $430. Secondly, Alvin's decision for Natalie is the same amount of moolah or the big box, and he also hands her the dough...being passed up this time was a stainless-steel French door refrigerator and a $500 bonus, for a total value of $3,198. In Round 3, Natalie rejects $700 and turns over what's behind Curtain #3 for Nicole to potentially receive...a four-night Palm Springs getaway (includes three spa treatments and limo service) worth $4,391! But folks, they all then take The Big Risk on Curtain #2...but the cabbage back there ELIMINATES THEM ALL FROM TODAY'S EXTRAVAGANZA- truly an EPIC FAIL.
Let's rejoin the action of the second deal. Elizabeth trades the small box to Jean (dressed as a Mardi Gras girl) and she immediately rejects a $400 offer to get what's inside...a hair care package worth $965. Again, we're taking a break from this particular deal.
Moving on to Lori (dressed as a die) now, Wayne Brady shows her three different coins. The first one is an 1838 half-dollar worth $145, the second is a half-dollar from 1940 valued at $200 and the mystery value coin is a silver dollar from 1886. She gives up the trio of coins for the big box... the last coin only had a $50 value. After that, she's told a clue for Curtain #3- whatever's behind that curtain has a motor. But she's keeping the box...and all she gets is a turtle. That means she ultimately misses out on...a Sea-Doo RXT 255 worth $13,229.
This morning's featured couple is Diane (dressed as a deviled egg) & James (dressed as a bottle of chiwawa hot sauce), who have known each other for 45 years. They have a chance to win a second honeymoon trip to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands worth $7,127 (Curtain #1). They get their choice of three consecutive numbered bills out of seven; each bill is either worth $50 or $100. They need at least $250 to buy the vacation, and they choose Bills #3-5.
1. #3- $50
2. #4- $100 ($150)
They can go for the third bill or bail out with the following at the big box- an eliptical machine with a retail value of $3,495. But they're going for the trip...
3. #5- $50
...and they're going to have to settle for $200.
Before we get to The Big Deal of the Day, we have some unfinished business with that portfolio Elizabeth's been holding the whole time. She could trade it away for the middle curtain, but she doesn't since Curtain #3 wasn't offered instead...and she definitely gave up a home theater system that included a Samsung 46" LCD HDTV worth $2,549. In her portfolio is 5,000...airline miles worth a total value of $138 (actually $137.50).
THE BIG DEAL: Earl's not interested in jewelry, so he will try for today's Big Deal, which has a $21,780 prize package behind one of those three doors. He's agreeing with me on Door #1...WE'RE BOTH RIGHT! That wins him a Ford Focus SES Sedan plus a $3K gas card!
Door #2: $5,516
Door #3: Home office ($2,593)
Today's total winnings is $43,473!
