Our journey into Price’s excellence begins with Darrious leaping from his front row, along with giving his fellow members of the row high fives, and finally his spot in Contestant’s Row. Florida’s rare variety of Layden was quite a rare character indeed, from bringing up the question of “Do I get to keep it?” for the first time ever in this game, even though he claims to know Clock Game. “You’re hurting me,” says Layden as Bob jokingly attempted to walk him off the Turntable after questioning the prize he shall keep no matter what. Despite being “so close”, says our Clock Game player, but his character and spirit remains intact at the very end. Like our previous contestant, Terri showed emotion of the rawest kind. I suppose a portion of the $10,000 in cash went toward Christmas gifts. After Tearether demonstrated her “run in place”, she made quick changes in the One Away price set for her. Even after 2 rounds of negative reaction from the audience and two changes (from the first “2” to “0”, which were correct), Tearether would still find out she lost. Showcase Showdown #1 featured not one, but two $1,000 winners including Layden and Terri. Representing a college sorority, Celina nearly rammed Bob into the Turntable before both the Piano and Squeeze Play were revealed. “Yes, Bob I love you!” were Darrious’ first words on stage after escaping Contestant’s Row at the very last minute. No $1,000 winner during this Showdown, but Darrious came back big with his final spin of the Big Wheel, bringing about a winning reaction consisting of leaps and a gorilla like chest beating. Showcase #2 featured the “Automatic Santa Machine”, or ASM. Both Showcase bids didn’t go very smoothly, especially with Darrious who managed to get Bob to understand his bid in less than a minute. We end today’s show with Darrious earning himself both a handshake and a pat on the back from our announcer Rich.
