5/30/2012 Results

TPiR: Since Mike became the executive producer of the program back in 2009, Monday's ending was the first time I've ever seen a Showcase car behind one door get replaced by an automobile won in a Pricing Game the same day. Also, that day's Pick-a-Number continued the recent tradition of having Chevrolet cars won by PG winners in non-car games who went on to win the Showcase, w/ Grocery Game being the exception during that period (a Mercury Milan was won back in '08, then a Toyota Tacoma a few weeks ago).

Today, Contestant's Row gets filled out by Alexander Aiello, Kyeshia Hughes, Michael Brannin & Frances Frizelle & coming down the ceiling first's the pair of Archos tablets (IUFB/truck cue).

Alexander: $849/Kyeshia: $1,300/Michael: $1K/Frances: $750

Those $800 electronics belong to Frances (a dental hygienist from Seattle) & now she plays 1/2 Off (Rachel on the left, Amber on the right).

SPs ("Domino" by Jessie J):
1. Pitcher ($20) & condiment set ($18)
2. Cake pop maker ($20) & passport cover ($8)
3. Toaster oven ($25) & iron ($20)

Believe it or not...she only gets the $40 pitcher right, so the cover was $16 (& she just gave a ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK NOMINEE) & that was a $50 oven.

BOXES LEFT: #2, #3, #6, #7, #9, #12, #13 & #16

Frances lets Rachel take it easy by bringing #16...but she completely misses it (so the big bucks were in #2).

The fifth calldown's Tenise Juge & the second one-bid's going to be about a three-night trip to the MacArthur Palace courtesy of the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau (Door #6)(new piano cue).

Alexander: $1,700/Kyeshia: $2K/Michael: $1,801/TENISE: $1,800 (& Drew does his occasional mimicking of a player's voice)

Kyeshia has the $4,034 getaway almost by default & will play Coming or Going for this non-trip prize package, an Avanti gym w/ a one-year Gold's Gym membership (Manuela at Door #3)(saxy multi-prize cue).

Guess: $6,547
ARP: $6,547- WIN!

After George says Jason Redondo's name, Rachel comes out wearing two pairs of Gucci sunglasses for the third IUFB ("Love You Betta" by Neon Hitch).

Alexander: BUCK/JASON: $800/Michael: $900/Tenise: $1,100

ARP: $560

Alexander plays Let 'Em Roll for June's "Price" Retro Car of the Month, a black/red '55 Buick Century Coupe (includes a V8 engine, AT, power brakes & power steering) valued at $22.5K (Amber at Door #3)(new party theme).

Groceries (Manuela)(Edd Kalehoff piano grocery cue):
Big container of Gold Bond Body Powder: $7.84
Hidden Valley Ranch: $3.79
Box of Splenda: $2.69

FINAL RESULT- WIN ON THE LAST ROLL! (he got four cars on the first roll right away & the other cube came up $1.5K both times)

SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN #1:
Frances ($858): $.95
Kyeshia ($10,581): $.95
Alexander ($23,060): 80 + 45 = OVER BY A QUARTER

FEMALE SPIN-OFF:

Red player #2's Wisconsin grandma Nancy Seidl & the fourth PUFB's an XBOX 360 package (Amber in the clam)("Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock).

NANCY: $750/Jason: $515/Michael: $675/Tenise: BUCK

ARP: $1,035

Nancy plays Take Two ("Fortune Hunter" by Edd) w/ a $3,293 target for a GE washer/dryer (Rachel), the Panasonic 46" HDTV (Rachel & Manuela), a contemporary Steve Silver dining set (Manuela & Amber) & Marti accessories (bag & wedge sandals). 

1. TV ($899) + dinette ($1,225) = $2,124
OTHER PICKS: Dinette ($1,225) + W/D ($2,068) = WIN! (Accessories: $2,845)

Plugging in the red next's Lisa Brink & they next are required to bid on the outdoor soccer & shuffleboard tables (Manuela & Rachel at Door #3)("Everybody Talks" by Neon Trees).

LISA: $600/Jason: $700/Michael: $750/Tenise: $751

Tenise wins those $1,160 tables & plays Side By Side for a Portugal vacation (Amber at Door #2)("Good Feeling" by Flo Rida). Blocks:

99
80
  
$8,099's wrong- if only that same-priced Ski-Doo had been there instead...

Last to get out of the Peanut Gallery's Roland Moss III & Michael gets the last-bid advantage on the final GUFB of the day, a pair of AKG headphones w/ the 160 GB iPod (Amber & Manuela)("How We Do" by Rita Ora).

Lisa: $700/Jason: $701/Michael: $550/ROLAND: $1,498

ARP: $1,047

GETTING THE CLUBHOUSE BOOT- Michael

The good news is that Jason from Carson, CA won't have to spin The Big Wheel second after this event- him playing One Away (Manuela) for a 2012 Ford Fiesta SE HB (Std., AT, Prot, Lighting/Radio)(Rachel at Door #3)("Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson). Board:
