Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6266)

Clock Game: Patricia wins (1 second left); Armoire ($678) and Water Walking System ($899)

Master Key: Matthew wins (2 Keys, including Master Key); Ice Skates, Cookware, and Chrysler PT Cruiser

Grand Game: Sylvia wins $10,000 (Target Price $5.00)

Showcase Showdown #1: Matthew wins with 85 cents

Freeze Frame: Ronald lost; Trip to Holland ($6727)

Card Game: Vanessa wins ($3000 margin); Dodge Caravan ($20,064)

Clearance Sale: Jan lost; Power Tools, Motorcycle, and Daybed

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

Showcase: Vanessa wins; “The Price is Right Department Store”, Showcase, Swimwear, Sailboat, and Piano ($38,286 in prizes)

Bob was quite amazed by even the thought of the Water Walking System featured in the Clock Game. According to someone off camera, the prize has been offered “occasionally” in the past. Matthew, a two-year veteran of the USA’s Army joined the show wearing a yellow shirt with the words, “The Army Loves Bob” in dark type. Before Sylvia became $10,000 richer, she earned it through the Grand Game, which our host referred to as “Bonus Game” at one point before immediately correcting himself. Unfortunately for our strong Canadian postmaster, the Trip to Holland costs a little more than a price in the $5000-$6000 range. As Bob built up the excitement surrounding Card Game, Boston, Massachusetts native Vanessa used the time to twist the hair behind her head (probably out of nervousness), but stopped in time for her victory. Vanessa was the last one standing in Showcase Showdown #2, so there was no need to be nervous this time, thus allowing her strands of hair to move freely once the Big Wheel stops at $1.00. Today’s Showcase featured Aristotle Onassis, Ludwig Von Beethoven, and Norma Jean, all whom have risen from “The Graveyard of Prizes” before making their way into “The Price is Right Department Store” Showcase. “Norma” found some Swimwear to replace her white dress ruined from being under the dirt. We end today’s show with Vanessa celebrating with our trio of the “living dead”, with Bob and our announcer Rich on both ends waving good bye. Good day, Halloween and non-Halloween lovers everywhere!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6265)

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Nicole wins; Exercise Bicycle and Chair (Bargain of $1500)

Plinko: Tiffany wins $500 with 5 Plinko chips

Ten Chances: Jordana wins (9 chances); Alarm Clock ($60), Karaoke Machine ($960) and Ford F-150 ($21,960)

Showcase Showdown #1: Jordana wins with 90 cents

Side By Side: Aaron wins (Right Side); Watercraft ($8398)

Pick A Pair: Justin wins (Entrée and Peanut Butter cost $2.99);

Cover Up: Sheryl lost; Pontiac Sunfire ($17,285)

Showcase Showdown #2: Aaron wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Jordana wins; Living Room Group, Maid Service, and Trip to New Zealand ($50,204 in prizes)

Members of the audience seemed worried about Nicole’s choice in the Bargain Bar after the Exercise Bicycle’s actual price was revealed first. As Tiffany’s outcome in Plinko appeared to be nothing by “0”, Bob asked our audience if they ever watched a game of Plinko years ago when the female contestant dropped all five Plinko chips into the “0” slots. Numerous responses of “no” were heard throughout the studio. In spite of the last four chips, Tiffany leaves the show $500 richer. Between the Alarm Clock and the Ford-F150, Jordana actually used seven of her ten chances to price the Karaoke Machine. Captain Aaron of the USA’s Army joins our host on stage for Side By Side. Sheryl had only digit in the Pontiac automobile’s price to correct in Cover Up after the first try, but a spectacular outcome was not meant to be today. Sheryl’s son in the audience was invited on stage to help spin the Big Wheel on his day of birth. He spun the wheel a second time on account of her, gaining another 65 cents. Today’s Showcases featured a Trailer, Maid Service for a Year, and a Trip to New Zealand. We end today’s show with Jordana and her crew in the new living room. Good day!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6263)

Triple Play: Barbara lost; Chrysler PT Cruiser ($15,480), Jeep Wrangler ($18,765), and a Convertible

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

Flip Flop: Matthew lost by “flopping”; Trip to Belgium ($7549)

Showcase Showdown #2: Jacob wins with 85 cents

Showcase: Jacob wins; “Something For Every Room of the House” Showcase, 42-inch TV Set, Roll-Operated Guitar, Computer, and Bar Set ($22,016 in prizes)

After Barbara attempted to get on our host’s left side, Bob managed to hand her over to his right in what appeared to be a short dance move. “Fourteen”, said members of the audience chanting the first four digits in the price closest to the Chrysler automobile’s actual price. Unfortunately, Barbara never considered one price closest to the Jeep Wrangler that would have kept her in Triple Play. The price of the cleaner featured in Grand Game was quite a surprise for both McKaye and Bob. As Matthew ran over to the Turntable to play Flip Flop, he managed to kiss Bob’s right cheek, which is not viewed as lewd in some parts of the world. McKaye was close to becoming $5000 richer in Showcase Showdown #1, but the wheel stopped only one peg away from 5 cents. Marvin wearing a “55 Years with Her” shirt with an arrow was our hero for the day after his playing of Any Number. Schoolteacher and mother Melissa escapes Contestant’s Row at the last possible moment. Today’s Showcase began in almost complete darkness and ended with a Lincoln Town Car. We end today’s show with Jacob and “Something For Every Room in the House”.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6262)

Lucky 7: Lauren wins ($1 left); Dodge Caravan ($19,834)

Make Your Move: Janessa wins; Jump Starter ($30), Desk ($990), and Golf Cart ($6933

Check Out: Andrea lost ($6.88 difference); Trip to St. Croix

Showcase Showdown #1: Janessa wins with 65 cents

Joker: John lost (Joker Behind Card #4); Living Room Group and 27-inch TV

That’s Too Much: Mary lost; Ford Focus ($18,924)

Double Prices: James wins; Sauna ($4695)

Showcase Showdown #2: Mary wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Janessa wins; “Top Four Reasons to Quit Your Job” Showcase, Dual Bicycle, Cappuccino Machine, Trip to Chicago, and Pontiac Grand Prix ($37,055 in prizes)

Lauren of Florida, New York proudly held up the one dollar bill needed to win in Lucky 7. “Bless you, my child, bless you”, said Bob after loyal viewer Janessa made her moves without ever changing her mind. Andrea of Canada seemed to be on his way to St. Croix of the Virgin Islands, but it clear to some viewers and members of the audience that he priced the calcium tablets too low in Check Out. Representing a group of “idiots”, according to the shirt was John. Mary had a good shout of her Pricing Game’s namesake during practice, yet she would stop a couple of prices too soon. None of our second half contestants earned $11,000 each on the Big Wheel, which would have delighted our host that time, but more could be in store for Mary in the Showcase. Today’s Showcases featured novels, a Pair of Motorcycles, a Dual Bicycle, and a Pontiac Grand Prix that Janessa wanted to know more about. We end today’s show around the Pontiac automobile.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6261)

Check Game: Scott wins (Check for $2200); Catamaran ($2995)

Temptation: Dana lost; DVD/CD Home System, Bowl of Cash, Coffee Maker, Bar Set, and Ford Focus ($19,215)

Cliffhangers: Robert wins (20 steps); Bedroom Group

Showcase Showdown #1: Scott wins with 90 cents

Squeeze Play: Barbara lost (removed “9”); 50-inch TV Set ($3499)

Grocery Game: Ashley wins (Total $20.04); Trip to British Columbia, Canada

Money Game: Anthony wins; Chevy Cobalt ($16,422)

Showcase Showdown #2: Ashley wins with 35 cents

Showcase: Ashley wins; Dining Room Group, Springsteen Compact Discs, and Jukebox ($24,668 in prizes)

“Tomorrow is my Birthday”, according to Scott’s shirt on today’s show, which gave our host the opportunity to wish both the studio audience and home viewers an early happy birthday. Scott never finished his check, which may be acceptable on the show, but any bank teller would say otherwise. Staff Sergeant Robert of the USA’s Marines received a standing ovation from the audience after Bob gave mention to the ribbons proudly displayed on his uniform. Unfortunately, temptation never stopped Dana of Indianapolis, Indiana before going for the Ford automobile featured in the Pricing Game Temptation. Robert missed the first item’s price in Cliffhanger by 15 steps, but he managed to “proceed with caution”, as Bob would say. Barbara wearing a nice shirt with the CBS logo (including the abbreviation) joins Bob for Squeeze Play, where she unfortunately jumped to a quick conclusion on the two “9s”. After a successful win in the Grocery Game, Ashley unwillingly hit Bob’s nose as she tried to hug him, but no harm worthy of “worker’s compensation” was done. Carole of Contestant’s Row mentioned her son Rigel, who was on the show previously. Anthony the other half of a 56-year marriage to Lorena joins our host on stage as members of the audience chant “Anthony”. After a perfect game of Money Game and a commercial break, Anthony said he would give the Chevrolet automobile to Lorena, while he gets the one she’s been driving prior to today’s show. Today’s Showcase featured “Nosy Photos”, a convertible, and a jukebox that plays compact discs rather than records. We end today’s show in Ashley’s new dining room.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6260)

Shopping Spree: Connie lost ($4100 to spend); Curio Clock, Exercise Bicycles, Guitar, and Dinnerware

Clock Game: Laurie wins (10 seconds left); Bistro Table ($799) and Retro Refrigerator ($899) (+$1000)

Let ‘Em Roll: Justin wins; Ford Focus

Showcase Showdown #1: Laurie wins with 75 cents

Plinko: Michelle wins $2600 with 5 Plinko chips

Card Game: Shelby wins ($5000 margin); Jeep Wrangler ($19,850)

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Peter lost; 47-inch TV Set and Fireplace (Bargain of $1000)

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

Showcase: “Meeting at the Oval Office” Showcase, Security System, Curio Cabinet, and GMC Envoy ($56,780 in prizes)

Connie represents the city where spending may come natural for her, and that great city happens to be Washington, D.C. When Connie asked our host if she can ask the audience for help, Bob said, “sure” and nothing more. Laurie “had her own style, but it worked”, according to Bob shortly after her victory in the Clock Game. Representing the now famous Bottom family making up today’s audience was Kyle of Contestant’s Row, whose “story of my life” explaining his relation to the family was enough for our host to jokingly accuse him of being a phony. Justin managed to earn four cars out of five cubes in his first roll in Let ‘Em Roll before finishing the game after his final roll. Justin’s celebration above the Let ‘Em Roll set while holding the cube container was a safety hazard for our host. Peter’s “Future Plinko Champion” shirt lost all of its meaning the moment he missed his one and only chance at playing Plinko, but he would eventually win his way on stage later in the second half of the show. A second or two after Bob reminded Shelby about the $5000 card included in the Card Game’s blue deck, she found it. Before spinning the Big Wheel in Showcase Showdown #2, Peter presented Bob the Canadian flag. Today’s Showcases featured a Trip to Spain, the “First Couple” of the USA, and a GMC Envoy. We end today’s show with Shelby and her crew in pink around the new automobile. Good day!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6259)

Freeze Frame: Chelsea wins; 52-inch TV Set ($3499)

Safe Crackers: Jessica lost (Combination 740); Collection of Telephones and Chevy Cobalt

Pass the Buck: Rema wins $5000 (Card #6); Ford Focus (Card #1)

Showcase Showdown #1: Rema wins with 95 cents

Buy or Sell: David wins (made $1500); Telescope, Sofa, and Motorcycle

Spelling Bee: Mabel wins $1000 (5 Cards); Pontiac Vibe

Switch?: Janice lost with a “switch”; Treadmill and Chair

Showcase Showdown #2: David wins with 60 cents

Showcase: David wins; Dining Room Group, Cappuccino Machine, and Boat ($28,816 in prizes)

Chelsea of Virginia was renamed “Speedy” by Bob after finishing Freeze Frame quicker than most winning players have. David of Contestant’s Row actually did the seemly impossible by looking over the bid displays, but looking at the other three bids upside down wasn’t much help to win his way on stage for Safe Crackers. After Mabel was called to come on down, a dog named “Mabel” made her world debut on today’s show. After Mabel was released from her human keepers, she ran off behind stage. Rema’s run around the stage after seeing the grand prize in Pass the Buck ended by grabbing Bob with both arms around him. Rema used her last chance to win the highest amount of money in Pass the Buck after finding both spots that say, “Lose Everything”. David’s celebration of birth continues on stage as a contestant who gets to play Buy or Sell. As Bob was about to find out whether David made some good decisions in this game, he asked our contestant as he was doing some sort of dance, “am I distracting you?” Whatever David’s reasons for such silly behavior on stage were, it was all in the presence of the price revealers in Buy or Sell, whom he referred to as, “ beautiful”. Audience favorite (according to the chants) Mabel’s southern accent was making “an old man out of” Bob as he was trying to remove the cards rightfully chosen off the Spelling Bee board. Mabel got all “As” today, but left the stage $1000 richer after the third card. During David’s spin of the Big Wheel, he not only said “hello” to his mother, but “to all the gorgeous girl of the world”. Today’s Showcases featured a “fabulous hair stylist”, trips to Las Vegas and Fiji, and a Boat. We end today’s show with David and his crew celebrating in the new dining room.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6258)

Half Off: Elaine lost (2 Halves and Box #5); Box #4 contained $10,000

3 Strikes: Matthew lost; Ford Expedition ($37,914)

Coming or Going: Elizabeth lost by “Going”; Catamaran ($4195)

Showcase Showdown #1: Matthew wins with 90 cents

Most Expensive: Allison lost; Golf Equipment, Luggage Set, and Dining Room Table (Most Expensive)

Dice Game: Ian wins; Ford Mustang ($23,124)

Bullseye: Carolyn wins; Bedroom Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Allison wins with 65 cents

Showcase: Allison wins; “Do It Yourself” Showcase, Hot Air Balloon Rides, Trip to China, and Chrysler Sebring ($40,076 in prizes)

The number “5” may be a lucky number for some people, including myself who has always viewed Price on a certain channel 5, but it was a whole different case for Elaine during Half Off today. Matthew almost fell to the floor a second after hearing our announcer Rich say, “a Ford Expedition” as the Big Doors opened. After pulling out the strike twice, Matthew managed to get at least one digit in the Ford automobile’s price before guessing incorrectly where it belongs. Elizabeth ignored the audience reaction out of mistrust after making her decision in Coming or Going. Unfortunately, the Dining Room Table featured in Most Expensive didn’t seem very expensive to Allison, who had better things to come. Ian (pronounced both as E-AN and I-AN by Bob) seems to have a legion of fanatics in today’s audience, according to the louder than usual female applause. Before the commercial break, Bob told Ian to tell everyone back home that he, the gray haired old man is a nice one. Carolyn never hit the Bullseye, but luckily chose the one item above the hidden bullseye. Today’s Showcases featured a Cruise, a couple of Hot Air Balloon Rides, and a Chrysler automobile. Matthew overbid on his Showcase, so Allison becomes today’s top winner.
