Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6045) (Original Air Date 5-25-2004)

Danger Price: Margaret wins ($1699 was Danger Price) ; Bicycle, Dining Room Table, Fireplace, and Vacuum

Hole in One: Michael wins; Dodge Caravan

Range Game: Jamie lost; Player Piano ($7500)

Showcase Showdown #1: Margaret wins with 60 cents

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Michael wins; Bar Set and Clock

Card Game: Katherine lost; Ford Focus ($15,575)

Bonus Game: Tamara wins; Living Room Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Katherine wins with 70 cents

Showcase: Margaret wins; Trip to Hershey, Pennsylvania, Trip to Thailand, Ford Mustang ($45,585 in prizes)

Margaret represented what Bob refers to as a “weird group of contestants”, featuring Katherine and Margaret as the most enthusiastic and those (Tamara and Michael) between them being forced to endure their excitement. Michael’s shirt told the story of his journey from Ohio to Price, which consisted of a flight to Las Vegas, a drive to Sunny California, and a stay of 2 days on 7800 Beverly Blvd. Did Bob successfully complete his inspiration putt, unlike Hole in One’s previous playing? The answer is yes and so did our first Michael! Jamie sporting a Bob Ross-like Afro has waited all his life to meet Bob and his first words in his like long wait were “I like your microphone”. Before taking on the Range Game, Jamie gave Bob a late birthday wish. Margaret took quite a fall on her back after taking a spin of the Big Wheel, but she managed to make it through to today’s Showcase. Our second Michael’s high fives were a little off course from his Barker’s Bargain Bar victory to the beginning of Showcase Showdown #2. 5 games later, Tamara escapes Contestant’s Row to play the Bonus Game. Before Showcase #1, we learn about a problem that’s been bugging Margaret since appearing on today’s Price, she called in sick on her job and by now the boss knows what she’s really been up too. Winning $45,585 on daytime’s most popular show should be the best excuse ever for Margaret’s boss.

Starr was given the chance to keep Lucy the Dog under control as she was being introduced to the Price viewers.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6044) (Original Air Date 5-24-2004)

Flip Flop: Cynthia lost; Piano ($8918)

Spelling Bee: Treffaney wins (CAR Card); Chevy Aveo

One Wrong Price: Roland lost; Washer/Dryer, Recliner (Wrong Price), and Cradle

Showcase Showdown #1: Roland wins with 85 cents

Check Game: Randall wins (Check for $1750); Pair of Motorcycles ($3928)

Cover Up: Christopher lost; Ford Escape ($20,617)

Hit Me: Judith lost; Dining Room Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Judith wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Judith wins; Dodgers Baseball Camp, TV/VCR/DVD, and Boat ($26,487 in prizes)

Starr was demonstrating the piano that Cynthia would never play due to her failing to flop instead of just flipping. Telling by her continuous jumping in Contestant’s Row, Treffaney had something in store for everyone, which included a plan at conquering Spelling Bee either way (CAR Card and Spelling “Car”). One of the chosen cards got itself a brief close up. Roland representing the peanut capital of the world (located in Virginia) unfortunately believed the price of the Cradle was wrong. Could it be that Roland did that on purpose to avoid winning a Cradle among others? Randall showed off his experience in writing checks during today’s playing of the Check Game and yes he actually knows the rules of the game itself. The first 2005 model of any motor vehicle offered Price was the Ford Escape. Judith was very lucky that Mary didn’t bid $1 more than her during the second bidding process in Contestant’s Row. Somewhere along the line, Judith got lost while playing Hit Me. Judith’s “hellos” as the Big Wheel was spinning almost sounded like a speech. Nope, no Double Showcase Overbid today!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6038) (Original Air Date 5-14-2004)

Range Game: Alan lost; Trip to St. Martins Islands ($6080)

Pathfinder: Mary lost; Ford F-150 ($22,370)

Race Game: Edith wins Flashlights and Stove; Dining Room Table and Dresser

Showcase Showdown #1: Mary wins with 95 cents

Pick A Number: Evangelina wins by picking “5”; Grand Piano ($8295)

Now or Then: Lloyd lost (“Then 1998”); Jukebox

One Away: Mona wins; Ford Focus ($18,195)

Showcase Showdown #2: Mona wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Mary wins; Living Room Group, Sun Glasses, and Powerboat ($18,617 in prizes)

Alan proved that he’s not quite a loyal friend and true by answering Bob’s question on the exact length of time ‘til the range can start again with “24 hours”. Edith of the Navy’s original bid of $450 now in the hands of Evangelina fortunately wasn’t a big mistake for her, but it was a gain for Mary. She may have stumbled a bit with the rules of the Race Game, but Edith did well proving her loyalty to the show. Lloyd and the rest of Paxton, Illinois must really love Bob (according to the “Paxton, IL loves Bob Barker” shirt) as you can tell by him attempting what Denise (of “Team Bob”) did earlier by stepping on stage and then residing at his spot in Contestant’s Row. Bob only threatened to call security on Lloyd. Another reason why Lloyd was in such a hurry arises after he escapes Contestant’s Row. Turns out that he’s waited a long time to meet Bob up on stage. Mona celebrates her day of birth on today’s show and wins herself the Price viewer’s ultimate gift! Showcase #2 featured Price’s version of phone psychic Miss Cleo, except this one was in no shape or form a scam.

For those wondering over for the past 2 days, y’all can sigh in relief. Rachel is back on the show!

(Here’s something for those interested, even though I’m the opposite of them. During the final edition of “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn”, former Price model Nikki Ziering was summoned twice, starting with Kilborn and a guest. Yep, most if not all audience members were in uproar.)

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6037) (Original Air Date 5-13-2004)

Pushover: Vicki lost; Floor Clock ($6425)

3 Strikes: Stephen lost; Lincoln ($40,732)

Check Out: Lauren wins (by 69 cents); Bedroom Group

Showcase Showdown #1: Stephen wins with 70 cents

Cliffhangers: Dorothy wins (19 steps); Trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Dorthea wins; Secretary Desk and Sofa

That’s Too Much: Kathryn wins; Pontiac Sunfire ($15,785)

Showcase Showdown #2: Kathryn wins with 40 cents

Showcase: Stephen wins; Kitchen Group, Swimwear, and Boat ($26,738 in prizes)

Introducing the blushing bride of Contestant’s Row Kathryn, who’s future marriage all dependes on whether she escapes Contestant’s Row or not. At first it appeared Vicki was preparing some attack on Bob with her arms, so he avoided her for a couple of seconds (even tried the old dressing room trick) until realizing she was only trying to kiss his famous right cheek. Stephen of Canada’s name was pronounced “Step Pen” as he was called to come on down. Bob assured Kathryn that their entire conversation on her possible marriage was edited out (unfortunately, no) before Stephen arrived in Contestant’s Row. We were all shocked, including Bob that “0” was not the last digit in the Lincoln’s price after hearing Stephen’s obviously wrong guesses. Looks like Stephen want to consider staying in a resting home after getting 4 of the 5 digits right except for that “2”. Dorthea (the other Dorothy) managed to come up on stage after being called to come on down and was walked back to Contestant’s Row in the midst of audience applause. After Dorothy’s win, it was Dorthea’s time to escape Contestant’s Row legally. As expected by some, the wedding is still on for Kathryn after escaping Contestant’s Row at the very last minute.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6036) (Original Air Date 5-12-2004)

Lucky 7: Anthony wins; Jeep Wrangler ($18,495)

Punch A Bunch: Christina wins $100 with 4 Punches

Grocery Game: Felicia lost; Trip to Mazatlan, Mexico

Showcase Showdown #1: Christina wins with 90 cents

Barker’s Markers: Forrest lost; Bar Set, Baker’s Rack, and Painting

Money Game: Huong wins; Chevy Aveo ($14,335)

Double Prices: Gregory lost; Spa/with AM/FM Radio ($8600)

Showcase Showdown #2: Huong wins with $1.00 ($1000)

Showcase: Huong wins; Washer/Dryer, Trip to New Orleans, Dodge Dakota ($38,484 in prizes)

For the first time since marrying his wife, something wonderful has come into the life of Anthony shortly after making the request before the eyes of millions. Christina’s winning bid including her lucky #3 (3 kids and 3 grandchildren) won her way out of Contestant’s Row for a little hole punching on the Punchboard. Too bad lucky #3 failed Christina this time after punching out 3 corners of the Punchboard except for the spot located on the top left hand corner. One of the products featured in the Grocery Game was a package of low carbohydrate tortillas. She may have not won by 30 cents on the Big Wheel, but if you multiply that score with the number of Christina’s children or grandchildren, you get 90 cents. 83-year-old John of the audience celebrates both his birthday and wedding anniversary with wife Sylvia on today’s show. Forrest’s run from North Carolina would end at a screeching halt during Showcase Showdown #2 thanks to a relatively short contestant with a big smile under the name Huong. Gregory sporting an arm holding device due injury on a surf board believed to have seen that Spa/AM/FM Radio on a recent show with a price very close to $10,000, but that price in mind cost him victory at Double Prices. According to Roger (no glasses this time), Gregory spinning the Big Wheel was the first time a contestant under the constraints of an injured arm still spun the wheel. Christina used lucky #3 yet again for her Showcase bid. Before our lucky #3 contestant left us, she asked Bob which model is Shane. Her face had plenty of time on camera after Christina’s question.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6035) (Original Air Date 5-11-2004)

Plinko: Verla wins $11,000 with 5 Plinko Chips

Eazy az 1, 2, 3: Andrew wins; Desk, Flatware, Daybed

Card Game: Mabel lost; Pontiac Grand AM ($19,145)

Showcase Showdown #1: Verla wins with $1.00 ($1000)

One Right Price: William lost; Hockey Table and Cabinet ($1318)

Any Number: Duchein wins; Ford Focus ($14,765)

Hit Me: Mary wins; Dining Room Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Duchein wins with 30 cents

Showcase: Duchein wins; Digital Cameras, trip to Switzerland, St. Choix, and Japan ($36,340 in prizes)

Bob enters the studio through the audience for the microphone and lets not forget the last high five, this one being from Erika this time. After Verla escaped Contestant’s Row, Bob asked her that all-important question, “Are you drunk?” Andrew the happy bartender didn’t pay any attention to Rich’s prize descriptions just so he can ask Bob if he really beat up Sandler in “Happy Gilmore”. Mindy the Dog was brought forward upon the eyes of the Price viewers. Opal in full blue clothing, sporting a large hat was too over excited to view the outdoor stove up for bids on the Turntable. “C. L. R.!” quoting the audience chanting the item with the Ace that would win Mary a Dining Room Group. Nope, we didn’t lose the last few minutes of today’s show to Rather & Company, thank goodness.

(Shortly after One Right Price, WKRG-TV5 forgot to air their promotions, so Price viewers in the Mobile/Pensacola/Gulf Coast area were left with “darkness” for about 20-30 seconds.)

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6034) (Original Air Date 5-10-2004)

Most Expensive: Larry lost; Dining Room Table (Most Expensive), Popcorn Cart, and Exercise Machine

It’s In The Bag: William wins $1000

Cover Up: Fannie lost; Ford Focus ($15,872)

Showcase Showdown #1: Fannie wins with 85 cents

Check Game: Crystal wins (Check for $2600); Trip to Canada ($3062)

5 Price Tags: Anne lost (2 Tags): Pontiac Vibe ($18,222)

Coming or Going: Brian wins by “Going”; Entertainment Center and TV ($6618)

Showcase Showdown #2: Brian wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Brian wins; Set of Golf Clubs, Stereo System, and Chevy Impala ($32,592 in prizes)

Larry the popcorn loving exercise enthusiast from Chicago won’t have to worry about getting overweight from all the popcorn after his lost. Nope, William’s wife Phyllis was not responsible for him only winning $1000. Retiree Fannie may have not been a certain other “Fannie” (Flagg), but this one does represent a part of the Southeast region (Louisiana to be exact). Crystal bearing a picture of her child on her shirt successfully won herself a trip back to the home country of Canada the second both Brandi and Erika revealed the trip’s price. Bad news, Crystal’s hometown is not near Canada’s Rocky Resort in Bente and the good news is that she’s never been there. 90-year-old Anne kept her promise to kiss 80-year-old Bob after she escapes Contestant’s Row, which all came shortly after Rich called her to come on down. Nope, no treasure under the stage this time according to the metal detector under the care and control of Rachel. Brian and Crystal were both a nickel short of Anne’s score during their first spins of Showcase Showdown #2.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6033) (Original Air Date 5-7-2004)

Bonkers: Joseph lost; Trip to Mexico ($3824)

Grand Game: Jenny wins $10,000

Showcase Showdown 1: Nicole wins with 75 cents

Magic #: Zuleika lost (Magic # was 1019); Recycling Bin ($1130) and Bed ($2248)

Squeeze Play: Socorro wins; Floor Clock ($3785)

Showcase Showdown #2: Andrea wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Nicole wins; Dining Room Group, Maid Service, and Snowmobile ($24,118 in prizes)

Due to circumstances beyond my control on modern society, Showcase Showdown #2 and Showcase were not seen in these parts of the North America continent, thanks of the likes of Mr. Daniel Rather and Mr. Donald Rumsfeld. In fact, I was unable to view today’s show, but on the positive side I finally got to experience the outside world for more than 5 hours. So I forced myself to round up details on today’s Price from a certain site that I won’t mention by name. Ah, it feels good to view a summary that’s not confusing and gets straight to the point. That of course refers to the summaries on this site!

(No 5+ hour trip this time, folks!)

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6032) (Original Air Date 5-6-2004)

Step Up: Brian wins Door Cabinet, Computer, and Dining Room Table (+$1500)

Coming or Going: Bethany lost; Trip to New York ($3874)

On The Spot: Vanessa wins; Pontiac Sunfire

Showcase Showdown #1: Bethany wins with 95 cents

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Shannon wins; Dishes and Motorcycle

Card Game: Matthew lost (within $1000); Pontiac Vibe ($18,220)

Hi Lo: Robert wins; Living Room Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Shannon wins with $1.00 ($1000)

Showcase: Bethany wins; Bedroom Group, TV, and Electric Vehicle ($23,094 in prizes)

Washington’s aspiring actor Brian makes his national debut on today’s show and reveals to all that he’s single after wild reaction from a few female members of the audience. Like single actor Brian, Bethany is also from Washington, creating a mini-version of a Washington convention as Bob called it. On the Spot, hated by some, liked by the silent majority of Price viewers (including me!) finally lost somebody to its mighty black spot. In other words, somebody finally won! Brian leaves us during Showcase Showdown #1 to certain parts unknown in the world of show business. May want to keep tabs on Brian after appearing on today’s Price. During a commercial break, audience member Katie of the Marines got a standing ovation after her return from service in Western Asia. Half a show and 1 Pricing Game later, Matthew bursting with a week’s worth of enthusiasm escapes Contestant’s Row for a little game involving big cards. Erika of Contestant’s Row, meet Erika, Price’s model from now to the very end. Thanks to his wife rubbing her own back, Robert completed Hi Lo’s line up of high priced products with a pain reliever. Showcase #1 was quite a “Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Showcase” (The movie, a Trip to Madrid, Spain, and Chrysler). We end today’s expedition into Price’s excellence with Bethany & Company filling up every last capacity of the electric vehicle. Where to go Bethany, The Late Late Show or The Young & the Restless?

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6031) (Original Air Date 5-5-2004)

Make Your Move: Jeanette wins; Coffee Maker ($80), Violin ($930), and Bed ($3074)

Hole in One: Sandra wins; Ford Focus (+$500)

Switch?: Christopher lost; Grill and Bar Set

Showcase Showdown #1: Jeanette wins with $1.00 + 5 cents ($6000)

Plinko: Jordan wins $11,100 with 3 Plink Chips

Most Expensive: Rami wins; Treadmill, Cabinet (Most Expensive), and Dining Room Table

Money Game: Nicholas wins; Dodge Dakota ($19,735)

Showcase Showdown #2: Nicholas wins with $1.00 + 15 cents ($6000)

Showcase: Jeanette wins; Living Room Group, Trip to Fiji, Swimwear ($31,461)

Bob confirms that Jeanette actually represents the state of Michigan college (sweatshirt proves that) after jokingly saying that she’s from North Carolina. Neither the audience nor Bob’s failed imitation of The Master’s latest winner of the Green Jacket stopped Sandra from claiming Hole in One victory. Christopher of the Air Force happens to be a pilot for the Thunderbirds air shows. “Monkey Grass”, was shouted by an audience member as Jeanette was about to spin the Big Wheel for a big surprise. After a Bob & Rich conversation in whisper mode, our second Jeanette was called to come on down. Bringing back Plinko for another playing was well worth it today after Jordan’s win of $10,000 with the 3rd Plinko chip and last but not least “the lovely Erika” being the one to give Jordan her other Plinko chips. Not much reaction from the audience after Rami made his decision, but it was probably for the best. “The Power of Thought” (A combination of the minds of Bob, Nicholas, Cameraman Lee, and Roger) was partly responsible for the back half of the truck appearing behind 35. Nicholas (wearing the “Bob is God” shirt) didn’t need “The Power of Thought” to win himself $6000 on the Big Wheel, just the simple thought of giving a shout out to family in the audience, which he did in his own type of manner.
