Debra was the first of today’s two “wonderful contestants”, despite letting the range in her Pricing Game continue by so little. Troy’s final item in Grand Game was a spray bottle of Tilex, which he used in comparison with the item above $6.00 for two different audience reactions. The middle key in Master Key was the one to win Wanda a trip to San Diego, not too far from Television City in Los Angeles. Courtney would have won the other two prizes if only she had used the rest of Race Game’s time wisely. Bonnie was our second “wonderful contestant” with a positive attitude made for the show. After Bonnie’s first spin in Showcase Showdown #2, members of the audience actually booed her for the week spin shortly after chants of “Bonnie!” filled the studio. Bob’s help at the wheel advanced Bonnie’s chances of earning a place in the Showcase, plus $1000 for getting $1.00. Today’s Showcases featured a background worthy of an encore, a Trip to Monte Carlo, and a Chevy Malibu. We end today’s show with our two great contestants hugging after everyone learned that Debra is today’s Showcase winner.

(Folks, a word for the wise on tonight’s TV programming. Once again, the E! Entertainent Network is airing the awful “True Hollywood Story” focusing on Price’s misfortunes rather than the history and all the good times. As someone who viewed this program on its original night of showing in 2002, I find it safe to say that it’s not worth any Price loyalist or game show fanatic’s time. For the last time, avoid this 9:00PM Central time airing of “True Hollywood Story” at all costs for the sake of Price and your view of the show.)
