Since Jon was still being processed outside Stage 33 at Television City due to the long line outside, our announcer Rich moved on to the next contestant to finish today’s first four contestants line-up. Robin covered her mouth with both hands after the Big Doors revealed the other Swap Meet prizes. The Necklace may have been expensive, but not compared to a 46-inch High Definition TV Set. Jon, 22-year viewer of the show, and bearer of the “Uncle Bob!” shirt became today’s fifth contestant to come on down and the second to win his way on stage. Jon was so eager to open Box #7 that he attempted to open it the first time Bob said “one, two, three, now”. Anthony of the Navy took the audience’s advice on the first two items in Hole in One, but he was completely on his own after that, even as the audience reacted negatively to his last two choices. Bob made a successful inspiration putt today. Darian always said he wanted a hovercraft on the show. There is no doubt that some viewers of today’s show will make his feelings about Leah known online. Hopefully these viewers will reframe. Anyway, Leah did not let audience reaction change her decision to switch the prices to their respective prizes in “Switch?” today. Bob asked Tamara how her name is pronounced (“TA-MA-RAH”, as Rich pronounced it, but later pronounced it “TA-MARE-AH” like Bob) before asking for her bid on a Baker’s Rack (brought out by the train), minus the “stuff”. Tamara’s first price in Cover Up was $19,790. If she had not chosen “9” for the fourth digit, Tamara would have had a better chance of winning the game. Tamara said “hello” to members of her family after her first and second (bonus) spins in Showcase Showdown #2. Today’s Showcase featured an African Safari prize package, a “Lady President” theme, and a Pontiac G6 automobile. Tamara’s Showcase bid was nearly $10,000 away from the actual retail price, thus making Robin the winner with a smaller price difference.
