Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6285)

Squeeze Play: John wins (removes “2”); Trip to the Caribbean ($8546)

Card Game: Catherine lost ($1000 Margin); Jeep Wrangler ($19,850)

Plinko: Marie wins $20,500 with 3 Plinko chips

Showcase Showdown #1: Catherine wins with 95 cents

Bullseye: Patrick wins (Hits $11.96); Golf Cart and Golf Set

Money Game: Maria wins; Ford Focus ($17,235)

Step Up: Ian wins Popcorn Machine and Motorcycle (+$500); Model Ship and Dining Room Table

Showcase Showdown #2: Patrick wins with 70 cents

Showcase: Catherine wins; Living Room Group, Dance Lessons, and Jukebox ($17,377 in prizes)

For the first time I have noticed a dark “TV-G” rating during the opening of the show, but it makes no difference in this age of screen clutter on television. Before John learned whether he removed the right digit in Squeeze Play or not, Bob asked members of the audience, including anybody from the Caribbean about the correct pronunciation about that area of the world. “CAH-RIB-be-en”, said one member of the audience and that is John’s next stop after today’s show. This moment reinforces the educational value of the show, as Bob reminded viewers after the first break. Catherine actually had a bid of $18,200 before stopping at $18,000 in the Card Game. Marie’s congregation in the audience helped after the last small item in Plinko was revealed. According to Bob, if Marie had all five Plinko chips, “the show would have been broke” financially. Patrick of the USA’s Navy hit between $10-$12 on the Bullseye with the purchase of four Peanut Butter jars priced a $2.99. Ian stopped after choosing the Motorcycle in Step Up, since choosing the Popcorn Cart turned out to be a bad choice. Today’s Showcase featured Dance Lessons, a Jukebox, Gold Bars, and a 2006 model Pontiac Grand Prix. We end today’s show with Catherine nowhere near her prizes, as the show went to the split screen credits a little quicker today.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6284)

Pushover: Jeffrey wins; Iron Bed ($3699)

Punch A Bunch: Angela wins $600 with 4 Punches (including Second Chance)

One Away: Brad lost; Chevy Malibu ($23,572)

Showcase Showdown #1: Angela wins with 95 cents

1 Right Price: Paula wins; Home Gym and Grandfather Clock ($2323)

Check Out: Tania lost (-$2.91); Dining Room Group

That’s Too Much: Kristina wins; Ford Focus ($18,095)

Showcase Showdown #2: Kristina wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Kristina wins; “Vacation Photos” Showcase, Portable DVD Player, Camping Trailer, and Cruise of the Mediterranean ($42,340 in prizes)

Jeffrey of Schleswig, Iowa only views the show on a rainy day, which didn’t please numerous members of the audience before our contestant could play Pushover. Jeffrey may not be an everyday viewer, but he knew Pushover and audience reaction so well that he made the game easier than it was today. Angela was very wise to move on from the first hole of the Punchboard containing $50 to the one with $500, but she had a good feeling that her third hole would lead up to more. Brad of the USA’s Navy had at four digits correct in the price of the Chevrolet automobile at one point, until he changed the “3” to a “1”. Our host’s hopes for Tania in Check Out were like a roller coaster a second after the last item’s price was revealed. Kristina’s third shout of “That’s Too Much!” was accepted before the game can begin. It was Kristina’s grandma that introduced her to Price, which was enough for Bob to salute all the grandmothers of this country during Showcase Showdown #2. Today’s Showcase featured “Less Known Investment Firms”, a Sailboat, photographs, and a Cruise of the Mediterranean.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6203)
(Original Air Date 4-29-2005)

5 Price Tags: Freddie lost (1 Chance); Chrysler Sebring ($26,145)

Grand Game: Brian wins $10,000 (Target Price $10.00)

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

Showcase Showdown #1: Brian wins with 80 cents

Barker’s Markers: Arlene lost; Floor Clock, Lounge Chair, and Heart Shaped Crib

Cover Up: Kindall lost; Dodge Neon ($16,359)

1 Right Price: Mary Lou lost; Dining Room Table ($1977) and Popcorn Machine

Showcase Showdown #2: Kindall wins with 75 cents

Showcase: Kindall wins; “Shushy” Showcase, Refrigerator, Alaska Cruise, and Ski Boat ($24,145 in prizes)

After complimenting Bob on being “the man” more than once, Freddie would face the challenge of choosing only one out of five possible prices for the Sebring. Grand Game’s latest target price made it slightly easy for Brian, whose accumulation of about $10,000 would pay off a student loan. Bearing the unique name of ShiiJeff, he became the proud owner of one hybrid of an entertainment center. Arlene carefully returned her $500 to Bob with dignity shortly after her loss in Barker’s Markers. Kindall was quick on his feet when attempting to correct the middle number, so quick that he didn’t realize that unlike “5” and “9” there was no other “3” in the price of the Dodge automobile. Mary Lou may have lost the Popcorn Machine and a Dining Room Table to serve the snack food on, but she received a free box of the popcorn filled close to the brim courtesy of Bob. Mary Lou relived a incident similar to one in Las Vegas, only then there was no Big Wheel to cause her fall or a TV camera to capture it. Today’s Showcases featured questions starting with “What If”, a snow creature called “Shushy”, and Rich’s uncontrollable laughter during Kindall’s Showcase. We end this week’s worth of shows on a high note!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6201)
(Original Air Date 4-27-2005)

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

3 Strikes: Tracy lost; Chevy Corvette ($51,370)

It’s In The Bag: Flora wins $0

Showcase Showdown #1: Joe wins with 90 cents

Barker’s Bargain Bar: Ricardo wins; Trip to Aspen, Colorado and Atlanta, Georgia (Bargain of $2000)

Card Game: Sandra lost ($1500 card); Pontiac Sunfire ($17,125)

Most Expensive: Melissa wins; Banjo, Baker’s Rack, and Bar Set (Most Expensive)

Showcase Showdown #2: Sandra wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Sandra wins; “The Price is Right Department Store” Showcase, Bicycles, Game Table, and Ford Focus ($25,620 in prizes)

After an almost unanimous audience responded with “flop” as Bob reminded Joe of Palm Springs how to play Flip Flop, our player had no choice but to go down this route. Turns out the word “shame” would apply the members of the audience who steered Joe the wrong way. A perfect bid would win Tracy’s way on stage for a Chevrolet automobile in addition to a $500 bonus. As the untimely end was coming closer, Tracy used the time to speak almost non-stop about her loyalty to Bob since “Truth or Consequences”, including a memory of a time when our host wore a fake mustache easily fooling members of the audience back then. Eventually Bob would thank Tracy for reminding him of that moment. Flora of Hawaii’s journey from the audience to the Big Wheel began roughly after it was discovered that her last name was written incomplete on Rich Fields’ list of contestants. Unlike the events leading up the outcome of today’s Flip Flop, it was clear as crystal that Flora wouldn’t even win $1000 with a box of popcorn over a price less than $1.00. Sandra, whom Bob referred to as a “pretty little girl” while asking for her prize to be revealed, unfortunately won’t be the proud owner of something else bigger in price than a $25 gift certificate for “some island restaurant” as she put it. We’ll see what lies behind one of the big doors once Sandra experiences the Showcase, possibly another car. Today’s Showcases, featured a gossiping female, a trailer, and yep a car. We end today’s show with Sandra and most, if not all of her California student body surrounding her personal mean of transportation.

(May your Turkey Day, your Recognition of the North American Pilgrims Day, your Day of Thankfulness, your Pre-Thanksgiving Sales Day, and overall your Thanksgiving Day be among the best.)

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6283)

Triple Play: Alisha lost; Chevy Cobalt ($16,110), Ford Mustang ($20,985), and Ford Explorer ($27,415)

Clock Game: Derek wins Tennis Equipment ($838) (4 seconds left); Range ($949)

Half Off: Jessica wins $10,000 (2 Halves and Box #8)

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

Double Prices: Raeanne wins; Bed ($3606)

Pass the Buck: Randall wins $5000 (Card 5); Jeep Wrangler (Card 6)

Range Game: Jack wins; Piano ($13,990)

Showcase Showdown #2: Raeanne wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Raeanne wins; “Paulette the Presbyterian Pilgrim” Showcase, Stereo System, Portable Spa, and Chrysler Sebring ($32,410 in prizes)

Celebrating her first year of marriage on today’s show was Kentucky resident Alisha, who joined today’s studio audience along with her husband John and friend Scott from Chicago, Illinois. After learning that her husband would drive the Ford Mustang, it appeared that Alisha suddenly forgot that all three automobiles would be hers if all goes with the last car in Triple Play. The Clock Game has been given another change in color schemes. Only the bottom part of the game remains yellow. After Marine representative Derek’s time ran out, Bob told viewers before the break that they’ll try again in the search for a big winner. Jessica representing the USA’s Navy in a gray shirt had four boxes to choose from in Half Off and her first choice was originally Box #2. Some contestants would choose Box #10, but for some reason Jessica changed her mind about her first choice and decided to settle with Box #8. Raeanne is now the proud owner of a $3606 Bed, courtesy of Double Prices. Jack has never played a Piano, but he will learn to play like his sister and grandmother, who happens to be the audience today. If Jack had stopped the range in Range Game one second later, he would have missed the price of the Piano that was only $10 away from $14,000. Today’s Showcase featured Paulette the Pilgrim, her horn, a Trip to Boston, Massachusetts, and a Chrysler Sebring. We end today’s show with Raeanne and her crew in purple celebrating around the Chrysler automobile. Good day!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6282)

Eazy Az 1, 2, 3: Katrina wins; Luggage Set, Dining Room Table, and Recumbent Bicycle

Plinko: Theresa wins $2600 with 4 Plinko chips

Ten Chances: Derek wins (Six Chances); Crape Maker ($30), Couple of Guitars ($620), and Ford Focus ($18,970)

Showcase Showdown #1: Derek wins with 95 cents

Pick A Pair: Regina wins (Canned Tomatoes and Tomato Soup cost 99 cents); 57-inch TV Set and Triple Seating Group

Money Game: Mia wins; Chevy HHR ($17,584)

Coming or Going: Bethany lost by “Coming”; Trip to Copenhagen, Denmark ($8354)

Showcase Showdown #2: Mia wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Derek wins; “Raggedy Ann Anniversary” Showcase, Rocking Chair, Washer/Dryer, Motorscooter, and Chevy Impala ($47,237 in prizes)

Representing her home state of Michigan in the form of a southern California student was Katrina. Bob directed Theresa toward the camera that would get her full facial expression once our announcer Rich gives her the good news that, “you’re going to play Plinko for a chance of up to $50,000!” Theresa’s first two Plinko chips were dropped from both sides of the Plinko board, giving her $100 and $1000 respectively. Derek had seven out of ten chances to win the Ford automobile today. Viewers were not given their daily ticket information today, folks, and the same goes for Rich’s reminder to “stay tuned” for the second half of the show. Mia found both ends of the 2006 Chevy HHR’s price without ever finding a dollar sign, thus making this a perfect Money Game. After the trip to Copenhagen, Denmark was revealed, our host admitted to always pronouncing the name of the city “Co-pen-HAW-gen” before asking the audience if anybody has relations to Denmark. When Bethany was asked how she pronounces Copenhagen, a member of the audience pronounced the last two syllables “HAY-gen” before she did. Unfortunately, Bethany should have been “going to Co-pen-HAW-gen”, as Bob jokingly put it at the end of the game. It may be interesting to some long time viewers that Rich said, “we need a Janice” a second before calling her to come on down and Bob agrees that she fits perfectly in Contestant’s Row. Out of all the groups making up the audience today, including a group of ladies with hats (who were unmentioned on-air), there was a no other who can scream as loud as the trio of young ladies Bob gave mention to today. One of the CBS pages managed to receive a slap on the hand from members of Contestant’s Row for luck. Today’s Showcase featured a celebration of the Raggedy Ann doll, a Rocking Chair, a Chevy Impala, and a bunch of Towels to go along with the Hovercraft. We end today’s show with Derek celebrating around his second new automobile.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6280)

Coming or Going: Lenore lost by “Coming”; Trip to Mazatlan, Mexico ($2504)

Punch A Bunch: Haley wins $1000 with 3 Punches

Line ‘Em Up: Bonito lost; Horror Movies on DVD, Chopper, Karaoke Machine, and Dodge Neon ($22,129)

Showcase Showdown #1: Lenore wins with 90 cents

Showcase Showdown #2: Peter wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Lenore wins; Dining Room Group, Ice Cream Cakes for a Year, and Pair of Motorcycles ($18,574 in prizes)

Haley of Contestant’s Row attempted to bid $0 on a Soccer Table since she was bidding last, but changed it to $1 under the sounds of great applause. Bob never commented on this moment, by the way. Some contestants would settle for a $500 slip found in the second out of three holes made in Punch A Bunch, but Haley hoped for something more while moving on to the third hole. I have a feeling that Haley will be receiving too much attention (unfortunately) in the Price online communities, not for just her $0 bid, but for her physical appearance. Irene, a former Martinez had a lengthy discussion with our host over her maiden name and the family she’s in now. Representing the USA’s Army was Peter among numerous groups of Service representatives making up the audience today. Peter walked over to the Popcorn featured in Pick A Pair in his attempt at finding a pair priced the same. Celebrating her 80th year of life on the show thanks to her son (in the audience) was Rosella, who now owns gifts worth over $7000 thanks to today’s appearance of Shopping Spree. Another military representative joins Bob on stage and that would be Nathan of the USA’s Air Force. Rosella managed to spin the Big Wheel on her own without Bob’s help. Today’s Showcase featured three types of Screens, Ice Cream Cakes, and a Pair of Motorcycles. We end this week’s worth of shows with Lenore as our top winner. Good day!

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6279)

Check Game: Jennifer lost (Check for $3700); Trip to Canada ($4011)

Half Off: Jesse lost (2 Halves and Box #7); Box #4 contained $10,000

Any Number: Leslie lost; Ford Mustang ($21,610)

Showcase Showdown #1: Jesse wins with 75 cents

Pass the Buck: Margaret wins $3000 (Card #2); Chevrolet Cobalt (Behind #5)

Take Two: Laverne lost (Sofa and Scooter Total $4718); Knife Set and Replica Gasoline Pump

Squeeze Play: Julia lost (removed second “9”); Electric Vehicle ($9390)

Showcase Showdown #2: Margaret wins with 85 cents

Showcase: Jesse wins; “Café Dishes” Showcase, Watch, Trip to Australia, and Trailer ($37,733 in prizes)

Before Bob revealed whether Kenneth’s bid of $7200 on a Catamaran (without jet engines) was a good decision, the West Virginia resident mentioned that he shops in Johnny Olson’s hometown of Louisville in the same state. Jennifer asked our host if the trip to Canada is a “round trip”, with him jokingly responding that contestants have to pay for their own way home. Jesse believed in the history of good luck behind number 7, but today’s appearance in Half Off was an exception to that history, though the four boxes made the chance of Box #7 containing $10,000 in cash greater. Margaret decided to keep the $3000 she found with her first chance in Past the Buck. Laverne’s first combination in Take Two was the Scooter and Replica Gasoline Pump. She stayed with the Scooter, yet she never once considered the Sofa. Today’s Squeeze Play outcome was quite a surprise, even Bob was surprised (“ay, yi, yi!”) about the “5” being the digit that should have been removed. Today’s Showcase featured café dishes, an expensive Watch, and the Ford 500. We end today’s show with Jesse and his crew in front of the Trailer.
