Halloween 2011 Results

LMaD: Dominick (dressed as a doughnut boy) could win the 2012 Hyundai Accent (Curtain #3) in the day's first deal involving a bucket of 10 apples. He'll be bobbing for them, of course. Nine of the apples have cash amounts from $100 to $300, but the other one has a ZONK attached. This car's on sale for $1K.

1. WIPEOUT

But, just like that famous Cash Register deal, if he should pick that ZONK again, he'll still win the car.

OTHER TRY- $100

(Notes: Tiffany's dressed as Carol Merrill & Cat's dressed as an extra from "The Heat Is On" music video.)

Sharon (dressed as a bumblebee) has her choice of these two ZONKS:

Curtain #1: Skeleton band
Curtain #2: Haunted cuckoo clock

She chooses #2 but leaves w/ $1K.

#1- Trip to New Orleans
#2- Half-eaten candy

Carrie's deal involves that giant crystal ball.

News Choice (Small Box- Tiffany): Good- It will help you feel beautiful
Other Option: Silver Envelope
PICK: SE- GEM Car (Curtain #3)
SB- Professional airbrush makeup tools ($1,168)

Those three pumpkins from one of last year's car deals are back for this year's. Tammy (dressed as a gingerbread man) sees that they're each marked w/ a year- 1973, 1975 & 1978. If she picks the year the original "Halloween" movie directed by John Carpenter came out & goes all the way w/ it, she'll win four grand besides the candy in the designated pumpkin. She locks in 1978...& quickly declines a $2,240 XBOX 360 package (Curtain #2) & $700...PERFECT ROUND!

Taking the season's second trip down the ZONK & Winding Road will be Jane.

Curtain #1: TRICK
Curtain #3: TREAT

She originally wants #1, but settles on the Big Box.

#1- '11 KIA Forte LX (Std., AT)($16,690)
#3- Accent
Green Box- $200
BB- Tennis package ($2,725)

The next three traders are Laurenne (dressed as a sailor), Marcus (dressed as a hot dog) & Kelly (dressed as an Indian). They see four more pumpkins, each of which has a dollar amount on the bottom; at least one of them has a buck underneath. If they let it ride on such a pumpkin, they'll buy the trip to London (Curtain #3).

Laurenne: #3
Marcus: #2
Kelly: #4

Kelly leaves w/ $900.

WINNING PUMPKINS: #1 & #4 (everyone else gets $100)

Here are Michael's choices (he's wearing a mohawk):

#1: Giant cash coffin (from a dollar to $10K)
Gold Box: HOME
Red Box: OFFICE

He's going for some spooktacular cash.

RB- TOSHIBA laptop w/ digital camera & Internet for a year ($1,481)
COFFIN- $140

Sarah's GB Round Decision: YES ($300)- Living room w/ a $500 amazon.com gift card ($4,113)

But Sarah then goes for the Volvo C30 in Big Deal Land!

THE BIG DEAL: After mentioning that she's getting married to her fiancee on New Year's Eve, Sarah's final answer this morning's #1...so much for the BD streak behind that door & they leave w/ a $3,434 Maytag washer/dryer package; #3 had the WaveRunner.

(Note: Today's curtain reveals had a creaking sound for this episode only.)

TPiRecap (featuring lots of classic cues & ANOTHER unknown ineligible contestant)

Heather De Lalla (Moorpark, CA)- Stay-at-home mom/former embalmer

A $2K treat will go to the player who can first solve this Landmark:

D E V _ _ S

_ O W E _

Johnny gets DEVILS TOWER.

The last Halloween trip this season could take one to New Orleans' Hotel Monteleone w/ a Haunted History Tour worth $5,040. After the identity of the IHOP Jackpot Round solution is revealed to be Same Letter, he spins first the Bankrupt next to the Wild Card. Secondly, Heather calls the night's first dud in N. Third, Tonya calls a $300 T & two R's for another $1,100, buys four E's & an A, calls three S's to add $1,800 & a $500 H while on the green 1/2 Car wedge, then she gets two C's for that Million Dollar Wedge before going Bankrupt in the same way to lose both pieces of cardboard & $3,200. On Johnny's second go-round, he calls the SL of four W's for $1,600 & two L's to add $600 to that & we have...

W _ T C H E S

W A R L _ C _ S / &

W E R E W _ L _ E S

...he solves WITCHES, WARLOCKS & WEREWOLVES to go to $4,200.

SOLE DUD OF THE ROUND: $800 N (Heather)
BANKRUPTS: 2 (Johnny & Tonya)
LEFT BEHIND IN JACKPOT CAULDRON: $8,450

This Phrase is a part of tonight's Prize Puzzle Round, first w/ Heather calling an $800 T & an H for the DVDEmpire.com gift tag, purchasing five E's, but that same Bankrupt bites her as well to eradicate $1,550 in cash & gift certificate. Tonya secondly loses a turn w/ an L call. Third, Johnny calls another dud in N while on the other 1/2 Car. Returning to Heather, she calls out a $300 M, two R's for another $900 & buys an O, followed by a $3.5K F, a $500 D, the twin A's to clean out the vowels & we get...

E _ _ A _ E

F R O M / T H E

E _ E R _ D A _

...she'll get to ESCAPE FROM THE EVERYDAY w/ another $4,700 & a $7K trip to the Almond Beach Club & Spa, for a new first-place total of $12,700 in cash & Barbados.

DUDS: $300 L (Tonya), $500 N (Johnny)
SOLE BANKRUPT OF THE ROUND: Heather

TONIGHT'S SPIN ID: DH7277956 (Dianna H. from Kansas)

Tonya's up first in the What's That Song? Mystery Round w/ a T while on the Mystery Wedge next to the former MDW & behind it for her is...the $10K! Following that are three S's for $1,800, an I, five A's, but then the other available Bankrupt to scare her out of $11,300; that's her second one of the night. Johnny's next turn features two R's for $1,600, a G for the Wild Card & a jump-in...

I T / _ A S / A

G R A _ _ _ A R _

S _ A S _

...he correctly says "IT WAS A GRAVEYARD SMASH" for the extra $1,600 & knows it comes from "Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers to make this round worth $4,600, putting him at $8,800.

SOLE BANKRUPT: Tonya

The last TU's about something In the Kitchen:

C A _ _ _ _ G

_ _ _ _ _

Heather solves a previously-used bonus puzzle that resulted in a $100K loss back at the start of Halloween Week '04, CARVING KNIFE, to pad her lead a little more w/ $15,700 in cash & vacation.

We're trying to solve a Fictional Place for this Last Chance Round w/ consonants worth...$1,300 apiece. Once Tonya has called for a couple of L's...

_ R _ _ _ L _ ' S

_ _ S T L _

...she escapes from DRACULA'S CASTLE for her only $3,900. Johnny's total cash treat's $8,800 & Heather's going trick-or-treating in Bonusland w/ $15,700 in cash & travel.

$28,400 in maingame winnings were cooked up on this Halloween night.
