Jan. 21st 2005

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6144)

Squeeze Play: Melissa wins (removed “7”); Trip to Rome ($7194)

Master Key: Fay wins with Master Key; Sewing Machine, Dinnerware, and Chevy Aveo

Grand Game: Raymond wins $10,000 (Target Price: $4.25)

Showcase Showdown #2: Elie wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Raymond wins; “Priceco Warehouse Store” Showcase, Stereo System, Spa, and Party Boat ($40,992 in prizes)

Our San Diego State representative (also attended by the spawn of Price’s producer Roger) was clearly anticipating to play a Pricing game involving cash prizes according to her “Poor College Student” shirt, but a trip to Rome should be something as good. The same Fay who almost rammed herself into the bottom of the stage as she came on down would conquer Master Key with only one key in hand. After finding out she won all 3 prizes, Fay made a run around the stage before arriving back to bow down to the floor Bob looked on in amazement. Following this act of victory, Fay had the energy to hug Bob at the very end before commercial break. Resembling a whole different “Raymond”, our Raymond for the hour would leave Contestant’s Row at a time Melissa wished she had stayed for. Words of encouragement from family, including a use of the word “girl” were shouted during Fay’s time at the Big Wheel. Michelle relied upon the audience only once during the Race Game and that only occurred after pulling the lever to reveal only 2 prizes with the correct prices. Like Fay, Elie was quite a character too, only it all took place on the Turntable. So far, we have 5 winners in a row; will Marvin make this a perfect Friday show? Sadly, this loyal left-handed viewer since he was a “a little guy” wrote an unfinished check above $2000. “There he goes again” says Bob as Elie made his victory leaps during Showcase Showdown #2.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6142)

Freeze Frame: Andrea wins; Bed ($5194)

Lucky 7: Aries wins ($1 left); Chevy Malibu ($23,367)

Cliffhangers: Stephanie wins (8 Steps); Home Office and Computer

Showcase Showdown #1: Andrea wins with 85 cents

Switch?: Andrew lost by “staying”; Couple of Banjos and Sofa

Let ‘Em Roll: Stephanie wins $2000; Ford Focus

Range Game: James lost; Spa ($8995)

Showcase Showdown #2: Andrew wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Double Overbid; “Rhymes” Showcase, Trip to Philadelphia, London, and Japan; “FPI: Federal Prize Investigator” Showcase, Dish Washer, Couple of Motorcycles, and Trailer

Among our first four contestants today was a braided haired, yet female Aries and Andrew, one of the few fellows to ever give up in Contestant’s Row (by sitting down) after placing a $6000 bid. Negative audience reaction was heard the moment Andrea chose to freeze her choice, but she proved those show participants wrong. James of Indiana who just arrived in Contestant’s Row was lured back before joining Andrew and Stephanie in their seats in Contestant’s Row. Aries’ chance of giving Bob both a hug & kiss only if she wins the Chevrolet came true after all. It’s interesting to note that Aries’ had no knowledge of Lucky 7 until Bob explained it of her, including every other viewer new to the game. Both of Cliffhangers last two items were priced correctly, winning Stephanie a new home office and a newfound love for the game. Before Andrea said she would rather have her name pronounced Anne-DREE-uh, Bob acknowledged the fact that older men tend to shrink, explaining his lost of a couple of inches over the past decade. Our character of the day Andrew escapes at last to make one important decision as a student of television (future TV producer), only resulting in the first loss of the show. Our second Stephanie played Let ‘Em Roll to the very end of the road, leaving the stage $2000 richer. Hoosier James made it on stage for Range Game showing up last. The only thing Andrew hurt was his hand rather than the Big Wheel or any witnesses. Today’s Showcases featured rhymes, an FPI agent, and distraction “behind the podium” possibly due to the presence of our agent. Unfortunately, our players with a big difference in height went over by so little. Sort of interesting this had to happen on the day before the 55th presidential inauguration takes over Price’s timeslot on all CBS stations.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6141)

Credit Card: Aaron lost (Credit Limit $2000); Steamer, Tea Set, Elliptical Trainer, Cookware, and Chair

It’s In The Bag: Norah wins $4000

Money Game: Tawnda wins; Pontiac Vibe ($17,835)

Showcase Showdown #1: Aaron wins with 95 cents

Secret X: Jared wins (X at the Top); Bedroom Group

Dice Game: Kelsey lost (rolled first “6”); Ford Focus ($16,265)

Double Prices: Darlene lost; Sailboat ($6171)

Showcase Showdown #2: Kelsey wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Kelsey wins; Dining Room Group, German Beer Steins, and Trip to Germany ($15,829 in prizes)

Aaron may be shorter than his fellow members of Contestant’s Row, but a photograph of him playing his now “beloved drums” should be an interesting sight, despite the fact that he’s not a drummer, nor he’s loyal to Credit Card. Bob kept the show’s promise of “making people happy” by insisting that members of Price’s backstage staff return the latest prize up for bids, specifically for one Tawnda who just entered Contestant’s Row. On the first day of her 18th year of life, Norah proved her true loyalty to Price after her It’s In The Bag performance, but unfortunately her mother and grandma forced her to end the run for $16,000 out of their less than confident selves. No hard feelings by our young contestant or her family, $4000 is more money than most people will ever earn in one day. Both Tawnda and Norah would say hello to their crew back home before leaving Showcase Showdown #1 and the stage today. Thanks to frequent visitor and friend Robert’s advice, Jared managed to be among the lucky ones to come on down. “3” was Kelsey of Oregon’s unlucky number in a Dice Game playing consisting of the first “6” being rolled and actual boos from the audience at one point. Darlene sporting a hairstyle from times gone by escapes Contestant’s Row nice & easy due to her left foot recovering from surgery. Jared dedicated his Big Wheel spin to all the unemployed actors of New York City; Bob mentioned the ones in Southern California as well. None of our formerly best-kept secrets of the Southeast featured at the beginning of Aaron’s Showcase were devoured as Rich described these products provided by Krispy Kreme. We end today’s show with Kelsey surrounded by a large number of members in her Oregon faculty as Rich managed to come over to congratulate her with a both a handshake and kiss.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6140)

Flip Flop: Margaret wins by “flopping”; Trip to Cancun, Mexico ($3764)

Pocket Change: Morgan wins with 50 cents; Ford Focus ($18,530)

Punch A Bunch: John wins $100 with 4 Punches

Showcase Showdown #1: Morgan wins with 95 cents

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Jerome wins; Iron Clad Gas Stove and Bar Set (Bargain of $1000)

Now or Then: John lost (“Then” August 1998); Living Room Group and Keyboard

Any Number: Brittany wins Ford Taurus ($21,390); Dining Room Table ($465)

Showcase Showdown #2: Jerome wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Jerome wins; “Unpacking” Showcase, Range, TV Set, Grandfather Clock, and Chevy Colorado ($31,686 in prizes)

Our week begins with a “Lots” theme in the opening, followed by some hair partially blocking a camera’s view of Bob making his entrance from the middle big doors. Lucky for Margaret, she didn’t have to use “all her strength” as Bob demonstrated during his own “flipping”. The same female variety of Morgans who had no idea what to bid (“I don’t know”, says Morgan after Bob asked for her bid) before discovering that’s she won her way on stage became Pocket Change’s first winner. Representing the Navy, John used most, if not all his strength when punching four holes on the Punchboard. It’s safe to say $100 is quite a lot when used wisely. Folks, meet Timothy the Dog who should be in someone’s care before the night is through. Jerome wearing a shirt with Bob’s image on front escapes Contestant’s Row not for anniversary jewelry as presented earlier, but for luggage and both prizes featured in the bargain bar. A can of Yams with a 1998 price above $1.00 sealed this civilian John’s fate. Like Morgan (a soccer player), our last contestant to escape Contestant’s Row was athletic (in basketball) and is also the proud owner of a new automobile. Today’s Showcases featured boxes, snow, and a Chevy Colorado with a back full of boxes. Before the break, Bob searches for the member of Price’s staff celebrating a day of birth. Before Bob revealed the Showcases’ actual retail prices, he asked the audience to wish Shane another happy day of birth. We end today’s show with Jerome and his wife standing in front of something much more expensive than anniversary jewelry, a Chevrolet automobile sharing a “C” state’s name.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6139)

Lucky 7: Vera wins ($1 left); Ford Explorer ($27,415)

Half Off: Steven wins (3 Halves; Box #9 contained $10,000)

Side By Side: Vanessa lost by “Left Side”; Electric Vehicle ($6933)

Showcase Showdown #1: Steven wins with 65 cents

Buy or Sell: Kurt wins (+$600); Dining Room Table, Fireplace, and Washer & Dryer

Dice Game: Charles wins (Rolled second “1”); Dodge Neon ($16,125)

Hit Me: Angela wins (Stayed at 18; House Breaks 21); Bedroom Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Kurt wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Kurt wins; “Hot Spots” Showcase, Hot Tub, Trip to Rio De Janeiro and Hawaii ($29,582 in prizes)

The year 1995 (back in Contestant’s Row) and the number “5” were Vera’s lucky numbers today, but we can’t forget old “7” which she got it “right on the nose” early on in Lucky 7. More luck comes between two boxes left in “Box Central” as Steven representing the Marines went his own route between the choices of Box #9 and #3. No luck was needed for Side By Side, but the audience managed to change Vanessa’s opinion on which “Side” makes the price of the Electric Vehicle. “Come on, Vera!” says Vera before spinning the Big Wheel for something greater than 65 or a tie at least. Price loyalist and sporting powerful legs Charles demonstrated for us his rolls, make that “throws”. I still ponder what was on his mind believing that the second digit in the Neon was “1” (lower than rolled number “2”). Angela escapes at the very last moment for Price’s version of Las Vegas blackjack, with the House losing to an Ace and “7”. Today’s Showcases featured “Hot Spots”, mall shoppers, and a Chrysler PT Cruiser. We end this week with Kurt and his small, yet energetic crew in front of the door that revealed his trips to Rio and Hawaii.
