Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6170)

Lucky 7: Gary lost; Chevy Colorado ($24,272)

It’s In The Bag: Mindy lost $1000

Race Game: Benjamin wins Dining Room Table and Lamps; Golf Equipment, and Stemware

Showcase Showdown #1: Gary wins with 95 cents

Pushover: Shamaine lost; Trip to New York City ($3015)

Master Key: Autumn wins Sofa (1 Key); Dinnerware and Dodge Neon

1 Right Price: Pole wins; Clock ($3785) and Bar Set

Showcase Showdown #2: Pole wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Pole wins; “Tricks” Showcase, Magic Set, Pool Table, and High Low Trailer ($26,859 in prizes)

It’s the end of February, spring is near, and a Ohio resident named Gary was so aware of his surroundings in Contestant’s Row, that he made an excellent escape just $1 higher than Autumn’s bid of $900 on an Elliptical Trainer. Signs of Gary’s awareness included the moment he informed Bob about what exactly did his neighbor Shawmaine bid on that prize, which was $600 rather than $1000. Another unique character enters the green spot of Contestant’s Row, only this Wisconsin resident in a green shirt named Mindy seemed to have no idea what to bid before realizing what she had done was right. Speaking of “right”, Mindy picked up Bob’s price tag with her prize’s actual retail price and in return Bob allowed her to keep it as a souvenir, plus she returned the favor with a hug (no physical harm inflicted). Representing Philadelphia Eagles fanatics around the world in a McNabb jersey (#5), Gregory joins the green section of Contestant’s Row. Benjamin’s use of the final seconds in the Race Game make me wonder if he believed there no time left to fix change the price tags of the other two prizes with the outcome of all 4 prizes won being possible in his situation. An unnamed purebred dog was introduced before an audience of hundreds of possible owners. Unfortunately, Shamaine filled to the brim with happiness to make it on stage won’t be spending a New York holiday with family, including her grandma mentioned before Pushover showed up on the Turntable. As someone interested in personal names, Autumn (along with Summer and surname Winter) is definitely one of them. Today’s Autumn was only able to win one key, which won her a new Sofa. Pole (pronounced PO-LAY) who’s very noticeable in those pink pants among most viewers made today’s last minute escape for a road of victory. Today’s winning Showcase featured trick shots, magic tricks, and a High Low Trailer. While Pole celebrated along with her crew, members of the audience can be heard chanting “Gary, Gary!”

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6169)

Plinko: Mary wins $2600 with 5 Plinko chips

Credit Card: Kevin lost ($1700 credit limit); Bongo Set, Dining Room Table, Cookware, Clock, and Bookcase

Money Game: Sherri wins; Ford Focus ($17,025)

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

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Shelton wins; Chair (Bargain of $700) and Dinnerware

Any Number: Christi wins; Pontiac G6 ($21,705)

Hit Me: Zovinar wins (Hits 21); Trip to Canada

Showcase Showdown #2: Shelton wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Sherri wins; MP3 Player, Trip to Rome, and Ford Freestar (with “Shuttle to T.P.I.R” sign) ($54,176 in prizes)

A week of excellence is coming to a close, starting with Mary sporting a red leather jacket making the escape from Contestant’s Row with a $1999 Exercise Bicycle in her future, along with thousands in cash. The $500 flashing along with the $1000 spot containing Mary’s Plinko chip doesn’t count. Pennsylvania State student and future electrical engineer Kevin who admitted to never exceeding his credit card limit has experienced a case of “there’s a first time for everything” on today’s show, oh well at least he knows the feeling of someone in a real life situation. Sherri of Missouri became the proud owner of a Focus with a little help from the audience, including a fellow named Ralph with a shirt featuring a photo of a young Bob Barker from Price’s early years on front, and a photo of a late 1990s Bob on the back. Before our Sherri spun the Big Wheel for a chance at winning $10,000, she said “okay” in a gruff tone of voice after Bob explained the situation. Before Shelton would win his way on stage, Bob declared the day being the best one in his life after a quad of young ladies referred to him as a “homeboy”, which means “you’re tight, man”, as Bob phrased it. After choosing the digits 1, 7, and 5 in a row, Christi managed to figure out her Any Number situation at the end. Since “0” can’t possibly be the first number in the Microwave or even the money in the Piggy Bank, its to safe it belongs in the car price’s fourth digit spot. Representing a large group of Armenians from somewhere in California was Zovinar, who was in great need of assistance from members of the audience who have played a good game of cards at least once in life. It seems that Shelton knew he was going to win his way into today’s Showcase, explaining why he was attempting to sliver away from Bob’s side so soon during Showcase Showdown #2. Sherri ends this week’s worth of shows with more that any Price contestant can imagine winning. Good weekend and good luck!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6168)

Pocket Change: Paul lost with $1.10 (Cost of Car $1.25); Pontiac Sunfire ($17,250)

Cliffhangers: William lost; Ford Escape

Most Expensive: Michael lost; Cotton Candy Machine, Armoire, and Dining Room Table (Most Expensive)

Showcase Showdown #1: Paul wins with 90 cents

1 Right Price: Eric wins; Stemware and Sofa ($2265)

Pass the Buck: Laura wins; (Car Behind Card #4) Ford Ranger

Pick A Number: Julie lost (Picked Second “9”); Bed ($2696)

Showcase Showdown #2: Eric wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Eric wins; “Double Showcase Winner”, “Stripes” Showcase, Trip to San Francisco, African Photo Safari, and Boat; “The Price is Right Department Store” Showcase, Kitchen Appliances, Jukebox, and Snowmobile ($59,236 in prizes)

After our first four contestants of diverse heights entered Contestant’s Row, Bob wearing an almost invisible neck tie matching the shirt made his own entrance through waves of high fives from lucky members of the audience on the edge of the aisle. Representing Pennsylvania State on & off stage was Paul, who despite pricing the second digit in the Pontiac’s price incorrect and picking up what would be his sole “constant reminder” to not pick up just the slip inside an envelope, was quite a fun contestant for viewers and Bob. William’s cries for the mountain climber to “stop, stop…” unfortunately never had an impact on the game or his outcome. The year “1977” was the price of the Dining Room Table, which Michael never chose aside from the Armoire in Most Expensive. Paul surpassed both his fellow contestants in cents during Showcase Showdown #1. Before the price matching $2265 was revealed in 1 Right Price, most loyal viewers were expecting the camera to zoom in on the price reveal, only it never happened today. Representing a “well adjusted” and loyal California family reuniting under the same roof, as their favorite show was Julie Eskobar of Contestant’s Row, who happens to bare the last name of Gonzales. She would make the walk to Pick A Number under the sounds of applause and shortly after some whistling that’s likely not meant to be a form of applause. Unfortunately this was not a lucky day for the Eskobar family all in yellow shirts (from the great grandmother to the youngest), or so it appears to be all. Paul’s hesitation and reliance on the audience led to the realization that his Showcase’s actual price including the boat was far greater than his bid. As for Eric, bidding $16,000 even was his advantage for a Double Showcase win and that’s what he got the moment Bob read the last 3 digits in the Showcase’s actual price.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6167)

Step Up: Patti wins; Carpet Steamer, Electric Guitar, Silverware, and Grandfather Clock (+ $3000)

Let ‘Em Roll: Jillian wins $1500 with 3 Rolls; Ford Focus

Safe Crackers: Michelle wins (Combination $670); Trip to Chicago and Snow Blower

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

Squeeze Play: Brianne wins (removed “8”); Boat ($6253)

Dice Game: Catherine wins; Chevy Aveo ($15,214)

Secret X: Ryan wins (X at Top Square); Dining Room Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Ryan wins with 70 cents

Showcase: Ryan wins; Bedroom Group, TV Set, and Trip to Japan ($22,018 in prizes)

One day after Mobile, Alabama resident David Jones made it to Contestant’s Row and on stage, Patti made the run for Step Up and Bob without inflicting any physical before or after a kiss on the right cheek. “How?” asked Patti in a jokingly fashion during Bob’s 9-second description (according to his watch) of the game. Hand and arm gestures such as playing of an air guitar was among Patti’s numerous ways of interacting with an audience including those who would chant a-plenty today. Bob had a good feeling Jillian was going after prize money in Let ‘Em Roll more than a Ford automobile. It appears clear as a well-lit crystal that Jillian was fairly new to Let ‘Em Roll, for example the common attempt at rolling a single cube by hand. Michelle (pronounced Mee-SHELL) of San Jose (pronounced Ho-ZAY) won’t be returning home with a Snow Blower, but a new Boat as part of a deal with Squeeze Play player Brianne, who’s from Colorado. Jillian danced her way over to the Big Wheel before scoring $1.00 and did an encore performance on her way over to the scoreboard. Representing the USA’s Navy, Lieutenant Catherine bearing the English spelling of the name “Katherine” was more focused on the “6” and “1” sides of the dices rather than rolling the right digits in her new Chevy’s price. I assure y’all that those weak rolls of the first dice and stealing Ryan’s (University of California Los Angeles) spot in Contestant’s Row did not demote our lady lieutenant. Before leaving the stage until Showcase Showdown #2, Catherine gave mention to another member of the Service, her husband serving far, far, away. Luck and miracles were on Ryan’s side during his playing of Price’s version of tic-tac-toe, consisting of placing his free X (or plus sign) on the middle row’s right-hand side, the middle itself, and finally the top row that would determine his fate. In the end, Ryan turned out to be one of numerous contestants who may not be loyal to the show, but can certainly learn quickly (with a little luck on the side). Even during Price’s first 10 years on Old Columbia (referring to CBS) contestants had to learn too.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6166)

Triple Play: Marlin wins; Dodge Neon ($15,530), Jeep Wrangler ($18,765), and Chrysler Sebring ($26,035)

Grand Game: David lost $1000 (Target Price $4.00)

Coming or Going: Ronda wins by “Coming”; Fireplace Entertainment Center ($6838)

Showcase Showdown #1: Ronda wins with 95 cents

Switch?: Amanda lost by “Staying”; Daybed and Exercise Bicycle

Bonus Game: Kristine wins (Square #3 contained Bonus); Trip to Alaska and a Couple of Pens

One Away: Bruce lost; Pontiac Sunfire ($17,476)

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

Showcase: Amanda wins; Trip to Disney World, Computer, and Chrysler Pacifica ($30,440 in prizes)

“Kristine Bla…oh there she is!” chuckled Rich as one of today’s first four contestants finally escapes her audience seat for a spot in Contestant’s Row. After winning a Pool Table on his day of birth, 59-year-old Marlin performed short dances near the edge of the stage as the three automobiles were revealed from behind all 3 big doors. Marlin may have been an excellent player in this Triple Play appearance and the first winner in quite a while, but that so-called amusing question for Bob on whether it’s possible to just leave with just two cars and a model was amazingly shocking. After raising his microphone back up, Bob responded with the simple answer of “no”. Representing the great state of Alabama and successfully accumulating $1000 briefly while managing to tease the audience (despite being short of $10,000), was David showing ‘Bama pride with his a blue “Bama” shirt (also on the backs and fronts of his crew). Marlin’s birthday celebration on stage ended with a Big Wheel spin dedicated to the life of an April who left this world only two days before today’s show was taped. Miguel joins Contestant’s Row in his mountain man gear for the remaining portion of the program before Showcase Showdown #2. Another choir was discovered in our audience and they were given the opportunity to perform in Contestant’s Row. According to Bruce’s shirt, “Canadians Love Bob”. Bruce had an unpleasant feeling he didn’t have at least 4 numbers right as he worriedly asked those ladies for conformation. A prize of $1000 may not compare to at least one of the “Switch?” prizes in value, but this was only the beginning in Amanda’s winning streak. Ronda’s Showcase had an art gallery, a Spa, and a Trailer before the picture of the famous Price dollar sign was revealed.

(Note: Grand Game prizes below $1000 can be won even if the contestant loses)

Today is Spay Day USA, sharing the same day a well-known USA president was born on. During Mobile, Alabama’s one & only WKRG-TV5 12:00 PM newscast, Grand Game player and Mobile, Alabama resident David Jones was mentioned. David, you made your fellow Mobilians (plus your grandma, whom you mentioned on the show) proud!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6165)

Swap Meet: Corina lost (Swap Price: $500 for Year’s Supply of Cheesecakes); Freezer ($500), Floor Clock, and Chair

Hole in One (or Two): Chante lost (Line 3); Ford Taurus

Bonkers: Larry lost; Trip to Acapulco, Mexico (Price Unknown)

Showcase Showdown #1: Chante wins with 90 cents

Joker: Kenneth wins (Joker Behind Card #5); Bedroom Group

Cover Up: Lajuana lost; Ford Focus ($19,215)

Double Prices: Laura wins; Hot Tub ($6495)

Showcase Showdown #2: Kenneth wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Kenneth wins; “What If” Showcase, Cotton Towels, Gentleman’s Chest, and Buick ($35,680 in prizes)

Along with a unique game/book cabinet consisting of checkers, chess, and backgammon could have been a year’s supply of cheesecake for Corina, who unfortunately believed a $1000+ Floor Clock equaled in price. We are reminded once more that Bob hates Hole in One whenever his inspiration putt doesn’t live up to the game’s name, and I don’t blame him for that remark considering the outcome Chante would soon endure. Greyhound couple Shawnee and Bubba searched the audience for a true master after years of racing with bets placed on their heads. I wonder if Velma of Contestant’s Row was thinking about bidding $1080 before Larry won his way on stage, since she bid $10,000 before Bob managed to sway her bid all the way down to $800. Larry would be among the losing Bonkers players who relied on an audience of over 300 attendees for advice in only half a minute. Lajuana of Missouri’s only frog may be the one featured on her green shirt, but she demonstrated a frog’s characteristic (“Hop on Down”, says her shirt) while on her way to Contestant’s Row. Representing those taller than Bob was Kenneth, or Ken as he prefers to called, who’s choice of odd numbers by only 3 times lead to the reveal of the Joker (“Come on, Joker!” shouted a member of the audience) behind lucky #5. Lajuana never hopped out of Contestant’s Row, in case you were wondering before her “fascinating” Missouri conversation with Bob. Expect Laura’s aching hips to be in better condition than ever after soaking herself in a new Hot Tub courtesy of Price. Showcase #1 featured only one USA president on this Presidents’ Day and that would be Thomas Jefferson alongside his closet (with one sock hanging). We end today’s show with Kenneth surrounded by his large crew wearing the same shirts as Bob and Rich managed to congratulate them. Good day and good week!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6164)

Lucky 7: Brian lost; Chevy Impala ($23,442)

Punch A Bunch: Ricardo wins $50 with 2 punches

Double Prices: Michelle lost; Trip to Washington, District of Columbia ($4466)

Showcase Showdown #1: Brian wins with 75 cents

Now or Then: Arnetta lost (“Then” September 1996); Bedroom Group

Barker’s Markers: Dorothy lost; Secretary Desk, Popcorn Machine, and Dining Room Table

Money Game: Ellen wins; Jeep Wrangler ($18,765)

Showcase Showdown #2: Dorothy wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Brian wins; “Marriage Counselor” Showcase, Language Tapes, Trip to Hawaii, and High-Low Trailer ($26,158 in prizes)

After Bob’s impression of a seemly clueless member of Contestant’s Row, we all got to meet Brian, along with his 80-year-old Granny Pat in the most unusual way. After Brian’s mention of his grandma, much of the audience was up in chants of “Granny Pat!” who would be asked by our host about her plans for tonight now that she’s the big 8-0. The year “1998” was the actual price to determine that Michelle of the B-O-B gang (she was the first “B”) has won her way on stage. Unfortunately, her nice gesture for the “O” and “B” members of her crew to take the trip to Washington instead of her will never happen (ironically, Michelle’s choice opposite of $4466 was according to them). Here’s a shocking revelation: Brian admitting to only seeing the show “a few times” was enough for some “awws” and “boos” from members of the audience. Dorothy representing a crew mostly in white shirts didn’t stay long with her choice of moving the Dining Room Table marker in order to conquer the game. Ellen became today’s heroine the moment the wheel of the Jeep behind “65” was revealed. Brian continued to surprise some loyal members up to the moment he took over Bob’s duty of saying his daily “have your pets spade or neutered” message.

Feb. 17th 2005

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6163)

Eazy Az 1, 2, 3: Michael wins; Dinnerware, Pair of Golf Clubs, and Day Bed

Plinko: Ora wins $2500 with 3 Plinko chips

Dice Game: Vaughn wins; Pontiac G6 ($22,646)

Showcase Showdown #1: Vaughn wins with 75 cents

Coming or Going: Dana wins by “Going”: Spa ($8995)

Line ‘Em Up: Marjorie lost; Dining Room Table, Blender, Jewelry Armoire, and Chevy Aveo ($15,429)

Pick A Pair: Cheryl wins (Jelly Belly Candy and Airborne Supplement $6.99); Trip to Switzerland

Showcase Showdown #2: Marjorie wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Vaughn wins; “Little Known Albums” Showcase, Home Gym, Floor Clock, Chrysler Sebring ($53,417 in prizes)

Ora of Contestant’s Row assumed her fellow contestants went over the Motorcycle’s actual price, so she thought a $1 bid was the best thing to do. Despite Michael wanting to take one block at a time, Bob managed to place all 3 blocks from hands to chin, gaining approval through the audience and Michael’s laughter. One bidding process later, Ora showed us according to her winning shouts that Plinko is indeed an enjoyable game, even though she won only 2 more chips along with the items representing them. During the Dice Game, a well-decorated Vaughn of the USA Navy used his bowling swing when rolling the last dice (the third “2” rolled). Like her crew in orange, Dana knew she was “Going”. Marjorie was 1 right decision away from owning a quad of prizes, but never realized that the middle number cannot be another “9”. Expensive Jelly Belly Candy never tripped Cheryl’s chances of a Swiss holiday, as there was a cold supplement “developed by a teacher tired of catching colds” close by. A little help from Bob would lead to Marjorie’s unbeatable score of 90 cents. Today’s winning Showcase featured pot-bellied “Beatles”, a cover for “40 Ticks”, and a convertible under the name “Sebring”.

Feb. 16th 2005

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6162)

Bonus Game: Priscilla lost (Bonus in Square 2); Ford Focus

Card Game: Ronda lost ($500 card); Ford Escape ($19,995)

Make Your Move: Nicholas lost; Massager ($40), Snowmobile, ($8414), and Flatware ($843)

Showcase Showdown #1: Priscilla wins with 55 cents

Range Game: Elaine lost; Trip to St. Thomas ($6698)

Let ‘Em Roll: Mattie wins $1000 with 2 Rolls; Pontiac Vibe

Switch?: Ronald wins with a “Switch”; Motorcycle and Crib

Showcase Showdown #2: Elaine wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Priscilla wins; Dining Room Group, Jukebox, and Spa ($31,175 in prizes)

The question “When will you bid?” was brought to the attention of Gabriella representing today’s first four contestants. Our first Texan, Houston’s Priscilla turned to out be a Federal Express delivery (literally, according to the front & back of her shirt). Priscilla unfortunately discovered her Bonus Game outcome too soon the moment Bob assumed her first mistake would cost her the Focus. A proud Texan named Ronda would have been a proud Escape owner if only she had a card of $2000 to be within. We would find out that Nicholas now wearing Philadelphia Eagles fan attire is a resident of the state of New York. The same Elaine who beat future Let ‘Em Roll player Mattie during the last bidding process stopped the range a few hundred dollars too soon. A $2 bid on a $1000-$1500 necklace was 80-year-old Mattie’s ticket out of Contestant’s Row before Bob steered her eyes toward more orange (color of the Pontiac) than most would ever see in one day. Speaking of Mattie, at first she chose to spin the Big Wheel herself, unfortunately her strength didn’t give contestants around her age a break this go round. Elaine’s Showcase featured video telephones made the TV set and chances for a balloon ride. Even under a dark cloud, Price made it through under unfortunate conditions today with Bob acknowledging model Brandi’s day of birth (back in January). The old saying, “keeping the faith” is alive and well!

Feb. 15th 2005

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6161)

Cover Up: Arye lost; Ford Focus ($16,215)

Clock Game: Celestine lost; Dining Room Table ($581) and Spa

Poker Game: Scott wins (Full House); Luggage, Sofa, Desk, and Espresso Machine

Showcase Showdown #1: Arye wins with 65 cents

Bullseye: Lori wins (Hits with $10.05); Kitchen Appliances

That’s Too Much: Nicholas lost; Chevy Malibu ($22,870)

Flip Flop: Narva lost by “flopping”; Electric Vehicle ($7695)

Showcase Showdown #2: Nicholas wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Nicholas wins; Bedroom Group, House Cleaning Service, and Trip to Singapore ($20,501 in prizes)

Our journey together again begins with a Contestant’s Row line up including one excitable Arye representing a group of students from the state of New York. After leaving Contestant’s Row a second before Bob finished reading the Pool Table’s actual price, making a unique run for the Turntable, and hugging Bob shortly after Rich’s “It’s a new car!” Arye’s losing outcome was enough for him to drop face first on the carpet. So far an interesting show as Celestine managed to shout out prices for about 15 seconds while assuming Bob was telling her to go “higher”. After the buzzer signaling her lost, Celestine realized that Bob (early coffee break coming up) was saying “lower” during the entire ordeal. Scott relied upon the Poker and/or Poker Game experts making up the audience and passed his previous hand to the House. “I’m good!” said Arye as he made the wise choice of staying on 65 cents, as Scott’s spins would add up to a score slightly more than Celestine’s. Former “Truth or Consequences” contestant Lori from about 30 years ago (Bob manage to host both Price and Consequences for a short period) had Bob thinking long before she made her escape from Contestant’s Row. At last, Nicholas who’s been attending the show for the week not only reached Contestant’s Row, but managed to win his way on stage for both a Pricing Game and for Bob’s signature on one of 2 home made shirts (second one made specially for Bob). The same Narva who bounced continuously in Contestant’s Row would continue this daring feat on stage at the last possible moment. Arye’s Showcase had an Old West flavor to it, from the Bar Set to the Dodge Ram (not an animal). We end today’s show with Nicholas alongside Miss Kitty of Arye’s Showcase before his crew could join in on the celebration.
