2/1/2011 Results

LMaD: Jaclyn (dressed as a fairy) & Crystal (dressed as a video game called "Super Snake") pop up just in time to choose one of the three Jack in the Boxes (Jonathan Mangum), at least one of which has a $5,000 card inside. Crystal had a chance to win a $100 bonus if she could remember the amount of lives on her shirt, but she was wrong w/ five; the actual number was two.

Jaclyn: #3
Crystal: #2


Even though there may be a sure thing behind Curtain #2, Crystal's keeping her box...well, there WASN'T a ST behind that curtain after all- there was the ZONK in the Box. But does she win the five grand...NO, but she has gotten $1.5K. Jaclyn also sticks w/ her JitB...but there's only $500 inside. But did she avoid a ZONK, too? NO- there was the $7,473 living room package that included cable & Internet service for a year.

Randy's handed that Multi-Swap ATM Card.

1. $300
2. $400 ($700)
3. $250 ($950)
4. $1,050
5. $800
6. BANKRUPT

He then takes The Big Risk on the big box...it pays off to the tune of a trip to the Marquis Los Cabos worth $6,042- PERFECT DEAL!

For only the second time this season, it's time for the BIG DEAL SURPRISE! Kendel has a chance to win a $17,955 car (Wayne Brady mistakenly says $17,995). He & his wife Lydia (she's dressed as an Indian) are guessing Door #1 has it. The other end of the spectrum, Door #3, had a $4,668 game room...while Door #2 had a medicore $754, meaning they've just won a 2011 Mazda3 i Sport Sedan (includes automatic transmission)- PERFECT DEAL #2!

Rachel (who's acting as being partly cloudy) is walking into the courthouse of the Honorable Judge Tiffany. Wayne's representing Curtain #3, while Jonathan's item is the silver small box (in front of Curtain #2). The item of Rachel's choosing is the box...that definitely costs her the Honda ATV & dirt bike valued at $5,368. Rachel also refuses $500 from Wayne's pocket...there's a Mon Cheri 18-karat white gold topaz/diamond ring worth $1,922.

We just had one couple win a car two deals ago, but we're about to find out if Jane & Jose (who are both representing Tarzan; they're celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary) can also win one, because they're playing the $250 Seven Envelopes Deal for the Honda Fit (Curtain #2). The envelopes they lock up are #1, #3 & #5.

1. #5- $100
2. #1- $50 ($150)

In the ST Jackpot for them is a Bull BBQ package priced at $3,164 (Curtain #1) & $500 (originally $200)...& they call a halt to this deal.

FINAL ENVELOPE: #3- BUCK

Let's do a couple quickie deals before we get to the real Big Deal of the Day. Amy has a choice of a bankroll w/ a Benjamin on the outside or the silver envelope. She chooses the envelope...thanks a lot, Peanut Gallery- you just sent her to Mr. Mangum's announcing podium & she's being forced to read off the description of her ZONK. That means $1,600 goes down the drain. As for Eric (who's wearing a weird football helmet), he's offered a bankroll w/ $50 as its base amount & the BB. He tries the box...but he's also ELIMINATED w/ a flying pig; he misses out on a total of $2,250. Finally, Andrew has a $5 bankroll & the silver small box (Jonathan) to think about. He plays the odds w/ that particular box...he gave back an extra 33 $20s & $665 in total money for $3K worth of service from The Maids. And luckily for him, he gets the chance to go on!

THE BIG DEAL: This package is valued at $23,692. Out of a toss-up between Doors #2 & #3, he picks #2...WRONG- his final prize is a $2,498 Maytag washer/dryer.

Door #1: Spa & an Indulge Mobile Spa party ($6,970)
Door #3: Trip to a Marriott resort in Aruba & a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Sedan S (Std., Mats, Wheels)

TPiR: Folks, the Super Bowl's this Sunday, and as a result of Leona Jackson's really lucky day yesterday, she might very well be driving from Huffman to Arlington (home of the new Cowboys Stadium) in a Mustang Convertible, while her husband Emanuel probably will choose to drive to the big game in a Jeep Wrangler.

But let's see what happens on the other episode of Kathy "Fingers" Greco's last taping day, starting w/ Ryan Rosenberger from the Coast Guard, Veronica Leal, Theodore Lukowski & Jacklyn Dunn & the opening IUFB of the JumpSport trampoline (Rachel at Door #2).

Jacklyn: $800

She removes the four for a guess of $13,692...

$ 1 3 , 6 9 2

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:

Veronica ($6,001): Half-Dollar + 60 = OVER BY A DIME
Jacklyn ($14,591): 55 + Half-Dollar = OVER BY A NICKEL; JASON GOES TO SHOWCASE

Philip: $1.5K
Theodore: $1K
Manjinder: $2,100
Brian: $1,501

ARP: A C-note, so Theodore's got himself a $500 bonus!

And he plays Pushover for a KTM 250 off-road motorcycle (Gwen at Door #2). The line of numbers:

157898562

He pushes to $7,898...

157898562

...right on!

Second to go blue is Natalie Brown & next on the morning's IUFB list is what I deem the "Price Look of the Week"- a strapless purple cocktail dress & clutch worn by Rachel in front of Contestant's Row.

Natalie: $850
Manjinder: $1.5K
Brian: $1,200
Philip: SINGLETON (aka $1)

ARP: $2,290

Manjinder plays One Away (Gwen) for the Honda CR-Z (Std., SRadio, EBH, CTray)(Manuela at Door #3). Board:

$ 2 8 , 5 7 6

The first price she forms:

$ 1 9 , 6 8 5

The Mighty Sound Effects Lady sounds that famous car horn...four times. Manjindor then agrees w/ yours truly on changing the five, making her final answer $19,687. I hope we're both right when it really counts...

$ 1 9 , 6 8 7

...AND WE ARE; TAKE THAT, AUDIENCE!

Victoria Fonseca is called down by George Gray last & the final IUFB of the day's a MacBook Pro held by Manuela. Not only is Jason in BIG trouble, but when it comes to this final CR round, Brian is, too.

Victoria: $2,100
Brian: $999
Philip: $951
Natalie: $2,150

ARP: $1,149- Brian escapes after all!

And if I were Jason, I'd be very afraid- Brian (a marine science technician) is playing a very winnable Pricing Game we'd like to call Cliff-Hangers (Rachel) for a Singapore trip worth $8,282 (Gwen at Door #3).

The Clapper: $20- $25 ($20 left)
Mixer: $35- $30 ($15 left)
Pizza oven: $40- $45 (so sorry, Jason, but at least you're still in the Showcase)

Again, I would've only switched the first two PGs. And what a week it has been at The Bob Barker Studio so far; somebody call Michael Richards to control the show's budget!

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #2:
Theodore ($9,398): 20 + 30 = Half-Dollar
Brian ($9,531): Three Quarters
Manjindor ($21,977): 20 + 75 = WINS W/ $.95!

To the right of Door #2- Trip to the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa in Cabo (Rachel)

MANJINDOR BIDS $45.5K ON TRIP/BMW SHOWCASE- STAGE GARF #2

MY BID FOR TRIP/BMW SHOWCASE: $55,031

JASON'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $18,000
ARP: $24,357
DIFFERENCE: $6,357


MANJINDOR'S SHOWCASE:
BID: $45,500
ARP: $57,149
DIFFERENCE: $11,649- LOSS; JASON WINS


Jason redeems himself just in time to win a total of $26,357 in stuff. Manjindor shouldn't feel too bad about NOT winning the BMW, because it has nowhere near as much fuel economy as the CR-Z.

I wish Fingers the best of luck in her future!

P R I _ _ _ _ _ _ ' S

_ _ _ _ _ _

Carline solves PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE for $1,000 & the chance to be talked to first:

Carline Fried (Encino, CA)- A high school Math teacher for 10 years who's the oldest of 23 grandchildren in her Italian family
Jake Ray (Mayfield, KY)- 7th & 8th Grade Math teacher/8th Grade basketball coach
Dianne LeClair (St. Joe, TX)- A Reading/Math interventionist whose house is frequently surrounded by wildhogs, birds, raccoons, armadillos & skunks; her family took care of a skunk family last Summer

$2K TU topic is Fun & Games:

S _ O W / _ N D

_ E L L

Dianne knows SHOW AND TELL is a school favorite to get said dollar amount & control.

Gorton's Jackpot Round category's Thing & Tuesday night's EF Educational Tour is to Berlin & Prague worth $6,989. She leads off w/ a quick dud in N. Secondly, Carline calls a $400 T & buys two E's, but she then hits the Bankrupt in between $600 & $900 to lose the $150 remainder. Third, Jake gets the other regular Bankrupt. As we get almost immediately back to Dianne, she calls a $500 S, three L's for the Million Dollar Wedge, but after buying three A's, she buys the board's only dud vowel (I). After Carline Bankrupts exactly the way she did her last spin, Jake calls three R's for $1,350, a $500 P & buys the rest of the vowels (three O's & a U) before picking up the Wild Card w/ a couple of C's. We have...

S O L A R -

P O _ E R E _

C A L C U L A T O R

...& he doesn't need a SOLAR-POWERED CALCULATOR to realize he's already on the board w/ $1,350.

DUDS (both by Dianne): I, $600 N
BANKRUPTS: 3 (two by Carline, Jake)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT: $7,450

The Prize Puzzle's a Phrase tonight. While leading off, Carline calls four T's for $1,600, buys an E, lights up two H's for another $600 but then lands on Lose a Turn. Second, Jake calls a $3.5K N & two W's w/ the WC for a tripler, followed by his purchase of all of the vowels in this puzzle (four A's, an O & three I's), three L's for an additional $1.5K while on Free Play & we now have...

N O W / T H A T ' _

W H A T / I / _ A L L

A / _ I E L _ / T _ I _

...NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL A FIELD TRIP- in addition to another $11,250, he'll probably spend quite a few bucks on his vacation to The Westin Casuarina Resort & Spa on Grand Cayman Island worth $8,265, for a new total of $20,865 in cash & trip.

SOLE LaT OF THE ROUND: Carline

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: TT6261946 (Tasha T. from Nebraska)

He'll also start a Gold Bond Mystery/Same Name Round. First comes a $400 S, an N for the other trip, but he then purchases the only negative vowel of the round (A). Second, Dianne calls a pair of R's for $1,200, & a T while on the Mystery Wedge in between $300 & $800. She risks her $1,200...for the $10K! Then, she purchases a trio of E's & a couple U's, calls an $800 P & trip M's for $1,200 extra, which gets followed by the triple O's. Here's the board now...

S U P R E M E / &

_ O M E _ O M _ N _

_ O U R T

...she nails SUPREME & HOMECOMING COURT for a cash total this round of $12,450 & $14,450 overall!

SOLE DUD: A (Jake)

Around the House is what the final TU's about:

_ _ _ _ _ - R _ N G

_ I _ _ E _

Jake quickly solves THREE-RING BINDER to pad his lead w/ $23,865 in cash & travel.

Last Chance Round category will be Movie Title & the consonant value here is...$6K! Following a C call...

T H _ / _ R _ _ _ _ _ S T

C _ _ _

...Jake seals the deal w/ "THE BREAKFAST CLUB" for 18 G's more & a big maingame haul worth $41,865! Dianne's leaving us $14,450 richer & Carline has a non-gooseegged C-note.

$57,315 in cash & voyage was totaled up in the maingame!

DUDS: M (Jake), N (Carline)

TONIGHT'S BANRKUPT TRASH: A trio of $50s

Big Money Round: Jake spins the I in AMERICA'S & his bonus puzzle topic this evening's Thing. RSTLNE gives us:

_ _ T _ _

_ _ N _ N _

He calls G, Y, H & A and now we have...

_ A T _ _

A _ N _ N G

...those A's did the trick for him on a PATIO AWNING! He's won an additional $30K, so he graduates from this great show w/ $71,865 in cash & trip!

To end this episode, because it was so cold in the studio on that taping day, Vanna pulls out a couple body heaters from near her boobs!!!

J!: Eureka Nutt's next opponents:

Ron Roberts (Pompano Beach, FL)- Poker empresario
Molly Rosenbusch (Quinn Lakes, ID)- Night fort clerk


First Six Categories:


A MAN, A PLAN, A CANAL...ERIE!
CELEBRITIES & RACING (the first clue is read by Alex Trebek from the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, which he did NOT win)
NEWSMAKERS OF 2010
TAROT CARDS
AKA
SOMETHING "MORE" (each correct response ends w/ said word)

Eureka's slightly in Lock Game Territory at the first break w/ $2,600; she's leading Molly by double Ron's early third-place score of $800. Immediately right after the timeout, Molly picks off the Daily Double underneath the $400 "More" clue. For $2K or a one-way trip back to zero for the time being, here's the clue:

This U.S. city was founded in 1729 & named for Charles Calvert.

She BLANKS on Baltimore & we don't have enough time for the last two clues regarding Tarot Cards. But Molly eventually becomes the leader w/ $5K & leads the champion by $800, followed by Ron w/ $2,400.

LACH TRASH (all unattempted): $2,600

Double Jeopardy! Board:

SCIENCE
MOVIE REMAKES

CHILDREN'S BOOK TITLES
EAT
PRAY
"LOVE"

After providing correct responses on the $400 & $1,200 Science clues, Ron gets a Video DD from the $1,600 spot & wagers half his four grand. Here's the clue from Kelly Miyahara that could put him in first place:

The keys weigh much more than the paper clips & fall to the ground, but a pencil acts as this support, pulling the clip sideways, where gravity & friction stop the keys' descent.

"What is a lever?"...NO. That's a fulcrum instead. Not too long after that's over, Molly gets her second DD of the match attached to the $1,600 Movie Remakes answer. This time, at $7,400, she's leading Eureka by exactly the amount of money Ron's got now- $3,200. She risks $3K of that margin on this:

This Al Pacino film was a remake of the Italian movie "Profumo Di Donna".

"What is 'Scent of a Woman'?"...that's it to move her into LGT w/ $10,400!

SOLE ATTEMPTED TRIPLE STUMPER OF THE ROUND: $1,600 ("Love")
UNATTEMPTED LACH TRASH: $7,200
TOTAL DJ! LACH TRASH: $9,800

In 1950, two years after his murder, some of his ashes were enshrined at the self-realization fellowship in L.A.

RON:
Response: "Who is Gandhi?" 
Wager: $200
Final score: $3,400

Eureka Nutt...DOESN'T have the magic now, because she's incorrect w/ "Who is Trotsky" & loses everything but a Benjamin, so that sends her packing w/ $39,701. Molly Rosenbusch had the same question as Ron & wins w/ $19,601.
