11/23/2010 Results

LMaD: Essence from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (who's dressed like her grandmother) gets to try to become the first winner of Three of a Kind; if she does, she'll win the KIA Forte (Curtain #1). She picks Cards #6, #2 & #1.

1. #6- 6 OF HEARTS
2. #2- 6 OF SPADES

The Sure Thing Jackpot behind the big box kicks off w/ some designer accessories worth $5,108, but she will keep going.

#5- ACE OF SPADES
#3- ACE OF HEARTS

$500's added to the STJ...but she's going for the car for good.

FINAL CARD: #1- ACE OF CLUBS- LOSS
#4- 6 OF DIAMONDS

Deal #2 this morning is the Poetry Corner. First, Elyse (a girl who just turned 24 and is dressed as a bride) hears that her clue for the silver small box (Jonathan Mangum) is "Spielberg, Steven", and she's offered $500, $700, $900, but her husband Nicolas then makes her quit w/ a thousand bucks...that will cost them a Canon digital SLR camera & the Sony HD camcorder worth a total of $3,379. In the other round, Luis (dressed as a penguin) is told by Wayne Brady that a grandfather clock's behind Curtain #3. His offers are $500 & $600, but he wants that clock...unfortunately, he ZONKS OUT OF THIS GAME.

Traders #4 & #5 respectively are Kimberly (dressed as a cheerleader) & Rachapun. Their choices are:

White Envelope: WHEELS
Big box: BUTTONS
Curtain #2: THE BIG RISK

At the start, they both want the wheels, but in the end, they both go w/ the middle curtain.

Envelope: Yamaha Zuma 50 motorscooter ($2,199)
Big box: Video game suite ($3,280)
Curtain #2: $4,567 inside the Bank Vault- PERFECT DEAL!

Today's couple is Alissa & Jason (who have been married for three years and have been together for seven in total); they're playing Name That Sound w/ a base bankroll of $300. Jason's making all the sounds.

1. Cow- COW ($600)
2. Dolphin- SHEEP
3. Car- CAR ($900)

Afterwards, they make a $900 purchase of Curtain #1...NO KIA this time, but we do have for them a dining room worth $6,493- PERFECT DEAL #2!

Next, Cheryl unfortunately has to roll all of the numbers on the die in order to win the Mazda2 (Curtain #3)...AND SHE ZONKS AT THE HALFWAY MARK W/ BACK-TO-BACK FOURS. That means she gives back a total of $1,200 ($900 in Envelope #1, $300 in Envelope #4). IMHO, the grand prize in this deal should be $100,000 because it's freakin' impossible to win.

Let's do two more regular deals before the big one. Monique's offered an Indoors gift behind the big box. She wants Alissa & Jason's furniture, but after rejecting $600 & $700, she'll have to settle for...a home office that includes an HP desktop computer system worth $3,976. As for Jennifer (who's wearing a giant die on her chest), she's told that a 16-ounce items lurks in that silver small box (Tiffany Coyne). Originally, she's offered $30 an ounce, but Monique opts for twice the value and sells this back for $960 total...a $4K female Rolex watch.

THE BIG DEAL: I don't know if Alissa & Jason gave up their dining room to Monique after going for this, but what I do know is that the price tag of today's grand prize package is $24,664. It's definitely NOT behind their choice of Door #3, but they will be riding away on the $6,999 Honda Shadow.

Door #1: Washer/dryer ($2,598)
Door #2: Trips to the Divi Carina Bay (St. Croix) & the Berns Salonger (Sweden), plus three pieces of red luggage

TPiR: Brad Sherwood's here to tell us that our First Four today consists of Thomas Douse, Amanda Kerr, Kenneth Wolford II & Alexis Stackhouse. After Connor beats Drew Carey to the punch on the Door #2 entrance, the first IUFB of the morning is the JVC 42" LCD HDTV w/ the 160 GB iPod (Gwendolyn behind splitting sign).

Alexis: $850
Kenneth: $1,625
Amanda: $1,800
Thomas: $1,401

ARP: $1,748

Amanda's $52 overbid means Kenneth from Ohio instead will be the first contestant this season to play 3 STRIKES for a 2011 BMW 528i (Std., Premium, Adapter, Hanger)(Lanisha at Door #3). The numbers in the price of the Beamer are 1, 4, 6, 7 & 8; my guess for it is $48,761.

1. INSTANT STRIKE
2. 4; CHOOSES FIRST DIGIT- YOU BET ($ 4 _ , _ _ _)
3. STRIKE TWO
4. 6; CHOOSES SECOND DIGIT- INCORRECT
5. LOSS (ARP: $47,681)


(Note: Drew revealed the numbers in the BMW price backwards at the start of the game, which is a throwback to the old days.)

Hoping to have much better luck is Angelita Gibson and the second IUFB is some Gucci accessories/fragrances (Gwen).

Angelita: $950
Amanda: $1,900
Thomas: $1,901
Alexis: $1,200

ARP: $1,397

Alexis plays Super Squeeze Play (NOT Bonkers as her T-shirt wanted her to) for a trip to the Hotel Kazbek in Croatia (Lanisha at Door #2). Board:

105037

She removes the second gooseegg...

$ 1 0 , 5 3 7

...but she shouldn't have touched either one- she should've had the three taken out.

The sixth person's name called is Cordelia Orta and the third IUFB is a Howard Miller Total Home wine cabinet (Lanisha behind the GPT).

Cordelia: $2.5K
Angelita: $2,001
Amanda: $2,100
Thomas: BUCK

ARP: $1,419

Thomas has to make the Switch? decision for a chance to win a ladies' Cartier watch marked at $3,950 (Gwen) & a Golden West Billiards Table marked at $4,995 (Rachel). He says the answer to that burning question is No...right!

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Alexis ($1,397): 60 + 80 = OVER
Kenneth ($1,748): 20 + 70 = $.90
Thomas ($10,364): 15 + 75 = $.90

MALE SPIN-OFF:
Kenneth: $.80
Thomas: WINS $1K & SHOWCASE BERTH!

Thomas Bonus Spin gets him...$.45.

Next comes Dena Guglielmelli and the fourth IUFB is an iPad w/ an accessory package for it (Rachel in the clam).

Dena: $1,300
Cordelia: $600
Angelita: $900
Amanda: $951

ARP: $690

Cordelia plays Pick-a-Pair for an Aico bedroom plus maid service for a year courtesy of The Maids & a year's worth of dry cleaning (Gwen at Door #3), all worth $15,419. Today's groceries are a small bag of Nestle Milk Chocolate Flipz, Northland Cranberry Pomegranate Juice, Del Monte Fresh-Cut Sweet Peas, Whink Hair Clog Blaster!, a 10-pack of Vanity Fair cups/lids & ACT Mouthwash. Her first choice is the Flipz, which is $1.49...BUT SHE THEN BLOWS IT BIG TIME w/ her subsequent picks of the juice & cups/lids, which are $3.39 apiece; the peas were obviously the other $1.49 item.

LeeAnn Malden takes her place after falling on an audience aisle for a second and IUFB #5's the Big Green Egg (Lanisha on the turntable).

LeeAnn: $1K
Angelita: $650
Amanda: $1,100
Dena: $651

ARP: $1,079

LeeAnn plays the Range Game for two Honda Shadow Aeros (Rachel at Door #3). Range is $15,600-$16,200, and she lets it go as far as $15,887-$16,037...SHE NAILS IT AT $15,998!

The last player to go red is Logan Webb and the final IUFB on this Tuesday's the JumpSport trampoline. Amanda's been here since the start of this show.

Logan: $500
Angelita: $600
Amanda: $770
Dena: $771 (sorry, Amanda)

SENT TO THE CLUBHOUSE: Amanda

After winning the $899 trampoline, Dena plays Cover Up for the 2011 Ford Mustang (Std., Prot)(Rachel at Door #2). Her board looks like this:

First digit: 2 or 4?
Second digit: 0, 1 or 3?
Third digit: 0, 2, 3 or 6?
Fourth digit: 2, 5, 6, 8 or 9?
Last digit: 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 or 8?

OPENING DUD PRICE: $39,470

Dena WINS the $23,694 Mustang in two tries! She first locked in $23,695.

Here's how I would've set the lineup:

1. 3 Strikes
2. Switch?
3. Squeeze Play
4. Range Game
5. Cover Up
6. Pick-a-Pair

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2 (Connor joins Drew again):
Coroetta ($690): Half-Dollar + BUCK = OVER
LeeAnn ($17,077): $.80
Dena ($24,593): 45 + 30 = Three Quarters; LEEANN BECOMES THE TOP WINNER IN TODAY'S SHOWCASE

Connor also hangs around for the Showcases, the first of which has a designer jacket/boots & trips to the Ye Olde England Inne in Stowe, VT & Germany (Door #1). All of this is modeled by Rachel, and I smell a Fireball Special Showcase Alert.

LEEANN PASSES TO THOMAS; THOMAS BIDS $6.5K ON TRIPS SHOWCASE- GARF OF THE CENTURY

MY BID FOR TRIPS SHOWCASE: $17,777

LeeAnn could add to her winnings a check for $5K (Lanisha), a trip to the Desire Hotel in the Big Apple (Rachel at Door #4) and that Green Maxum ski boat (Gwen at Door #3).

LEEANN BIDS $25,675 ON TRIP/BOAT SHOWCASE

Martha solves WILDERNESS AREA to start the first main round.

After the $5K Ally Bank bonus goes on the wheel, the IHOP Jackpot Round category is Things; tonight's & Thursday's gift tag comes courtesy of 1-800-SKY RIDE.com. She calls two T's for that same amount in spendable cash & three N's to add $1,500 to that, but after buying two A's, she purchases a dud vowel in I. Secondly, Natalia calls a D for the gift tag & two L's for $1,800, then she buys three E's, gets the beeper for repeating the I while on Free Play, calls a $450 S, two R's for another $600 and buys three O's to clean out the vowels. After she lights up a $500 V, we have...

The Before & After Round first sees Natalia calling an instant dud of T. Second, Tony calls two S's while on FP for $1,000, buys an E, calls a $500 N, but he then runs into Lose a Turn. Third, Martha calls four R's for the Wild Card but then a dud of L while on the $3,500 wedge. Returning to Natalia, she hits the right Bankrupt of the Million Dollar Wedge, which leads to Tony calling D for dud. Martha next calls a $450 P, buys three A's, but she then Bankrupts the old-fashioned way next to the top dollar space to lose the WC & the $200 remainder. Natalia next gets the MDW's other Bankrupt. Back over to Tony, who puts up a $600 G, a $500 C and we have showing...

Barbasol Mystery/Prize Puzzle Round category is What Are You Doing? Still in control, Tony calls three N's for $900, buys two I's & calls the $300 obvious G, followed by his second LaT landing of the night. Second, Martha calls four R's for $1,200 and buys five E's & three A's to rid this puzzle of all its vowels prior to putting up a couple of S's for another $600 and ringing in...

S _ E N _ I N G / T _ E

E N T I _ E / _ A _

...she will NOT be SPENDING THE ENTIRE DAY AT THE SEA, because she's incorrect by a letter. Afterwards, Natalia puts up the twin P's for $1,800...

S P E N _ I N G / T _ E

...and she'll be SPENDING THE ENTIRE DAY AT THE SPA during her trip to the Fairmont Southampton Bermuda from Pleasant Holidays worth $5,300, for a new total of $10,950 in cash & prizes. Martha's wrong answer costs her $6,600 in cash & Bermuda during this round of play.

Last Chance Round subject is Fun & Games and the value on the consonants here tonight will be...$1,600, but it's still anybody's game. Late in this round, after Martha makes a pair of M's show up on the board...

R _ _ S T _ N _

TONIGHT'S BANKRUPT TRASH: $200 & the WC

Maxwell House Big Money Round: Natalia Ruff spins the N in SPIN and her category will be Phrase. For starters:

_ T ' S

She calls D, P, M & O...GAME OVER. It wasn't IT'S DAZZLING as I thought; it was IT'S BAFFLING and she loses the Jeep. She leaves w/ $50 shy of $11K in cash & stuff.

J!: I think George Tsuji has a good chance of retaining his title tonight as he faces:

Megan Cornell (Grand Rapids, MI)- Stay-at-home mom
Bob Kennedy (Santa Barbara, CA)- College linguistics instructor

PASS THE "URK"-Y

For the second night in a row, Tsuji is right on the first two clues of a category before finding the Daily Double on Clue #3; in this case, it's Beer Googles. This time, his $1K clue this early in the game is:

Google links to the site for this American beer that's sponsoring a longshot American homebrew contest.

"What is Busch?"...NOT the brew we're looking for, so he's $400 in the hole. It was Samuel Adams. When the first commerical break's reached, Megan's in Lock Game Territory w/ $3,400; Tsuji's back to $600 & Kennedy's a couple Benjamins in the red.

"GAME", "SET" & "MATCH"

The first DD of this round is Kennedy's on the last Tennessee clue w/ $13K; the champion's a fairly close second at $8,400 & Megan only has two thou thanks in part to a reverse ruling on a correct response of hers regarding the $1,200 "Game", "Set" & "Match" clue. He bets the face value of the following:

Running w/ Adlai Stevenson in 1956, this Tennessee Democrat was a candidate for Vice-President.

"Who is (Lyndon B.) Johnson?"...no- Estes Kefauver was it, so he drops to $11K. On the next-to-last regulation clue in Paint No Stopping Us Now, Cornell locates the other DD and has a respectable third-place score of $6K; she's $2,800 behind the champ for second & $5,800 behind Kennedy for first. She gambles five G's on this answer:

Paintings by this man include 1913's "Paris Through the Window" & 1914's "Over Vitebsk".

"Who is...Magritte?"...DD SHUTOUT. Correct: Who was Marc Chagall? That means she's OUT of this match w/ a C-note.
