11/1/2010 Results

LMaD: Antoine & Tanya from Bell Flower, CA (who are dressed as a pair of black dice) are NOT playing Dice Derby or Keep on Rollin' for the Honda Fit (Curtain #1); instead, they're playing the $1/$2 Envelopes Deal. They choose all of the odd-numbered envelopes on the board that Jonathan Mangum has brought out.

1. #7- BUCK
2. #3- $2 ($3)

In their Sure Thing Jackpot is at least a range among these kitchen appliances worth $3,472, but they're going on at least one more round...sadly, both of their remaining envelopes have a BUCK in them, so they leave with just $5.

(Note: During the intro, director Lenn Goodside forgot to show the intro logo animation.)

Hoping to have better luck are Melinda (dressed as a ladybug), Alexis & Julie (who's wearing a purple boa).

Melinda's Round:
$700- Alexis
Box A: Julie- MacBook Pro laptop & iPad ($2,298)

Alexis' Round:
$700- Melinda
Box B: Julie- Michael Green & Company purple amethyst/diamond earrings ($2,646)

Julie's Round:
$700- Alexis ($1,400)
Big box: Melinda- Snowboarding gear ($2,594)

THE BIG RISK (Curtain #1): Melinda (and Wayne Brady takes her there)- Giant hot dog set

Willard (dressed as a one night stand) hears a rap from Wayne & Jonathan, and the prize behind Curtain #3 is either an ATV or bike of some sort. After $700 is offered to him, he keeps the curtain following a $1,000 offer...and he's won BOTH prizes behind that curtain courtesy of Honda (the latter's a dirt bike) worth a total of $5,068- PERFECT DEAL!

Let's play the One-Roll Dice Deal; each roll of the dice this morning will pay $200 per point if anybody goes for it. First, Jillian (dressed as a party princess) turns down what's behind Curtain #1...which was a bedroom worth $4,070, but she rolls a seven for $1,400. Secondly, Tammy sees the white envelope come out of Wayne's suit and takes it...had she rolled those bones, she would've rolled a five worth a grand, and she's going on a ZONK prehistoric trip. Finally, a lady named Kyle (dressed as a blue Crayola crayon) forfeits the dice for Curtain #2...she would've gotten a nine for $1,800, but she might win a lot more gambling during her Las Vegas getaway at The Bellagio from Vegas.com worth $3,635.

The next trader's Yusuf (who's dressed as a football referee), and here's a three-box version of the Prize/Zonk Deal.

Red- Flash memory HD camcorder w/ camera bag ($1,240)
Green- Men's Rolex watch ($5,250); STOPS
Blue- Pop-up book- PERFECT DEAL #2!

There's one more deal we get to do w/ Curtain #3, and Lindsay (a birthday girl who's holding a rabbit doll) turns down $700, $800, $900 & $1,100 before also refusing the last offer of $1,300...it's a trip to the Wyndham Suger Bay Resort & Spa in St. Thomas worth $8,114- PERFECT DEAL #3! Problem is, she's NOT really going there, because she's going for the Big Deal of the Day!

THE BIG DEAL: This is worth $22,963 in cash and/or prizes. She picks Door #3...and has just won EVERYTHING IN THIS BD! First, behind Door #2 is...a pool table plus the Samsung 40" LCD HDTV, a game room package valued at $2,800. Second, Door #1 has for her...a red/white Sea-Doo GTI SE watercraft worth $8,699! And finally, her door has...the Jacuzzi J365 & some plush deluxe white cotton towels w/ a price tag of $11,464!

Today's combined winnings, even without any cars, is $45,905 in cash & stuff!

ARP: $2,195

Michael, a man originally from Florida who just got married three days prior to the taping of this show, plays Bonkers for a trip to the Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa in Puerto Vallarta (Lanisha at Door #3). Board:

8 6 3 7

1. LLHH- INCORRECT

3. LHLL- INCORRECT
4. HLLL- STAGE WILLY
5. HHHL- NO WAY

Joanne: $1,200
Kiri: $1,050

ARP: $1,794

Joanne earns her way up on stage just like that to play Cover Up for the Jeep Wrangler (Std., AT, AC, Prot)(Manuela at Door #2). Board:

First number: 2 or 4?
Second number: 4, 8 or 9?
Third number: 0, 1, 2 or 4?
Fourth number: 1, 5, 6, 8 or 9?
Last number: 0, 3, 4, 6, 8 or 9?


OPENING DUD PRICE: $17,935

Her first guess is $24,180, which gets her the first two digits in their correct places. She secondly says $24,298 and gets the other two right. Third is $24,264, which ENDS HER GAME- it was $24,216.

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Joanne ($1,794): Three Quarters
Michael ($2,195): 65 + 75 = OVER
Brett ($11,310): Three Quarters

SPIN-OFF:
Joanne: $.90
Brett:
WINS ANOTHER $1K & SHOWCASE BERTH!

Brett's very last spin of the Big Wheel is worth...$.80.

Coming on down next is Dakota Girl Kari Krumwiede in a wheelchair and IUFB #4 is a selection of Christian Dior cosmetics (Lanisha & Rachel).

Kari: $800
Kiri: $479
Nancy: $899
Catherine: $900


ARP: $660

Kiri, the only player that didn't overbid that time (and works at a BBQ place), plays One Wrong Price for some Prada accessories marked at $3,580 (Manuela), an Elite bar set marked at $4,280 (Rachel) & a 32" stainless-steel, five burner gas range marked at $2,420 (Lanisha). She believes the dud price's attached to the BBQ...NO- the accessories cost $600 less than posted.

Next is William Bayless and IUFB #5 turns out to be a Giovanna Kilis 20" wheel/tire set (Manuela behind splitting sign).

William: $1,800
Nancy: $2,400

79520

The SPs are:

Coffee maker: $63 or $80?
Lazy Susan: $49 or $65?
Red sound machine: $15 or $29?

She steps to the five as the second digit...incorrect. Her first SP pick is the LS and she guesses $49 for it...yes indeed, and she correctly walks to the four ($ 2 4 , _ _ _). She third goes to the six...no. For the coffee maker, she locks in $80...right. She next heads down to the five...wrong. To stay in the game, she goes with $15 on the sound machine...yes ($ 2 4 , 1 _ _)! According to her, the fourth digit in the Challenger price is eight...right
($ 2 4 , 1 8 _)! It all comes down to her final choice of zero...NO- it was $24,185. Tough loss by her.

Hoping to help us recover from that bummer is Christine Cunningham and the last IUFB's a Fagor dishwasher (Rachel behind rising sign). Katherine's in BIG trouble.

Christine: $600
Catherine: $1.5K
Kari: $700
William: $1,800

WoF: In this week's "Wheel Loves L.A." intro, Vanna touches the last two O's of the Hollywood sign and they light up while we hear the famous ding! The end shows us the wheel-shaped logo via a spotlight. Also, for at least this week, Johnny Gilbert will be filling in for Charlie O' Donnell (he also did this during the first week of December 1995, which is best famous for having part of Vanna's hair being cut off).

But speaking of Charlie, I DEEPLY REGRET TO INFORM YOU THAT HE HAS PASSED AWAY TODAY IN HIS SLEEP AT HIS HOME IN SHERMAN OAKS, CA. AT THE AGE OF 78 DUE TO HEART FAILURE. DARN.

The first Toss-Up category is fittingly Show Biz:

T A K E / I _ / F R O M

T H E / _ O _

Ashley blanks out on the last word.

T A K E / I T/ F R O M

T H E / T O _

Katie's able to TAKE IT FROM THE TOP for $1,000 and the right to be interviewed first amongst this panel:

Katie Brewer (Charleston, S.C.)- A massage therapist who also works at her husband's deli
Ashley Yeager-Gregory (Phoenix)- Professional dancer on cruise ships
Sam Ackmachen (Long Grove, IL)- Dentist

The second Toss-Up talks about a regular Thing:

_ _ C K E T

S T _ _

Katie redeems this TICKET STUB for another $2,000.

IHOP Jackpot Round is Quotation and out on the wheel now is a $5,600 trip to the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills; this week's category wipe features a surfboarder. Katie starts us off with an immediate dud of R while on the Million Dollar Wedge. Secondly, Ashley calls three E's while on Free Play before Bankrupting next to the $2,500 wedge. Third, Sam calls three T's for $2,400, buys three A's, but he then hits the same Bankrupt that Ashley just got to lose $2,150. Katie's second turn has her calling two H's for $800, a $600 M and buys the rest of the vowels (one O & two I's) before dudding out on the Wild Card w/ B. After that, Ashley lights up two K's for $800, two D's for another six bills and we have..

I ' D / _ I K E

T O / T H A _ K

T H E / A _ A D E M _

...she says "I'D LIKE TO THANK THE ACADEMY" to keep the $1,400.

DUDS (both by Katie): B, R
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Ashley, Sam)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $8K

And she'll start the Before & After Round. First, she calls four R's for $1,200 and buys four E's, but she then buys a dud vowel in U. Second, Sam calls six S's for $5,400, but he also purchases a negative vowel of O. Third, Katie calls a $450 D, buys the only vowel in this puzzle of three A's and then lights a $500 P, a T for a Regal Entertainment Group gift package and here's the board...

S T R A P _ E S S

D R E S S

R E _ E A R S A _

...you'll probably never see a STRAPLESS DRESS REHEARSAL in your life, but Katie solves this puzzle for another $1,700 in cash & gift tag and $4,700 in total winnings.

DUDS (both vowels): O (Sam), U (Ashley)

Meineke Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is What Are You Doing? Sam racks up $14K just like that with four N's. He next buys two I's, three A's, five E's & a couple of O's to instantly clean out the vowels, followed by a $300 J, a $550 C, but then a dud of V to potentially cost him at least $13,850. Second, Katie puts up a Y for the B.H. getaway, but she then lands on the exact same Bankrupt that was gotten twice before in the Jackpot Round to lose that trip right back. Third, Ashley lights a trio of S's for $1.5K, an $800 D, a $500 P, and we see...

E N J O Y I N G

O C E A N S I D E

S P A

_ _ E A _ _ E N _ S

...she wins another $2,800 and will be ENJOYING OCEANSIDE SPA TREATMENTS on her $7K stay to the Almond Morgan Bay Resort in St. Lucia, which makes her the new leader with $11,200 in cash & trip.

SOLE DUD: $900 V (Sam)
SOLE BANKRUPT: Katie

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: TK00243 (Tom K. from Texas)

$3K TU topic's Place:

B _ L C O N Y

_ E A T I N G

Katie gets BALCONY SEATING to close in on Ashley w/ a new total of $7,700 in cash & prizes and get the TU Sweep.

A Person is next to be deciphered (w/ a hyphen in the first line of this puzzle), starting with her calling a pair of S's for a C-note, an A while on FP, twin T's for another $1,400 and buys an I & O, followed by an $800 N, a $900 G, the remaining vowel purchases (double E's & a U), a $450 B, two L's for a grand more, but she then calls D for dud to likely give back $4,350 and the chance to re-take the lead. After Ashley lights the $700 H...

B E S T - S E L L I N G

A U T H O _

...she gets BEST-SELLING AUTHOR to inch up to $12,200 in cash & St. Lucia.

SOLE DUD: $300 D (Katie)

The Last Chance Round revolves around a Phrase and all consonants are worth $1,800 each. After Ashley has the double E's appear...

_ / L _ T T L E / _ _ R _

T _ L _ / _ E

...A LITTLE BIRD TOLD ME that she's the champion tonight with $14K in cash & vacation! Katie has a final total of $7,700 in cash & goodies & Sam gets the $1K consolation.

So far, $22,700 in cash & merchandise has been given away.

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH: $7,850 in cash & trip

Maxwell House Big Money Round: This week's car is a Ford Mustang Convertible from Star Ford. Katie spins the P and her subject's Phrase. Here's her base board:

_ N _ _ R _ / _ N _

_ _ _ _ R _

She calls D, M, P & A and gets...

_ N _ A R D / A N D

_ P _ A R D

...her winnings will STILL NOT go ONWARD AND UPWARD, because she only starts to say the first word as time expires. That means she misses out on $35K and she'll leave with $14K in cash & trip.

DFtL!: On VH1 this week, a couple like Mike Biscotti & Mary Spease (who have been together for five years and just got engaged) will compete each night.
