Showcase Showdown #2: Ingrid wins with 75 cents

Credit Card’s “array of prizes” received numerous rounds of applause from the audience, including the Bowling Equipment out of all things. After choosing the Country Music Albums and Bowling Equipment, Kathy assumed the Day Bed would not exceed her credit current. Fellow Mobilian and overall Alabamian Genevieve joined Contestant’s Row representing a local senior citizens center. Bob accepted Joseph’s request to no longer kill his patience with the buildup, so the price of the trip to Mazatlan was revealed a few seconds early. Unlike the buildup in Squeeze Play, the one in Grand Game only led to disappointment for Ingrid. Ann joined us on stage $500 richer after an amazing perfect bid in Contestant’s Row. Unfortunately, the only key in Master Key she earned was the neither the namesake of the game, nor the one that would earn her the car. It was the key that opened nothing. Genevieve escapes Contestant’s Row at the last possible moment for a game of 1 Right Price, where a certain Dining Room Table in the $2000-$3000 range was ready for one’s first glance. Bob assured viewers that Genevieve would return for our second Showcase Showdown. Genevieve didn’t make it into the Showcase, but she left today’s show with fund memories and the hearts of her fellow southwest Alabamians watching today’s show. Today’s Showcases featured Hot Sauces, Gardening Equipment, and a Travel Trailer. We end today’s show like any other show with a Double Overbid at the end; Bob mingles with the audience and the rest of the on stage crew, including our announcer Rich waved goodbye.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6241)
(Original Air Date 9-26-2005)

Showcase: John wins; Sleepwear, Bedroom Group, and a Hovercraft ($42,094 in prizes)

From the moment he said, “how you doing, Bob?” proud new piano owner and Wisconsin resident Terry was quite a character on stage. Our host was in near danger yet again as Christina actually leaped to hug him. Bob had to settle on the outer edge of the Big Doors to regain what breath Christina took out him. She heeded his warning to keep away as he settled down, by the way. Arthur received plenty of “boos” after making his final decision in “Coming or Going” before his trip’s price of $7464 was confirmed to be right. “You’re Bob Barker…and that’s the wheel…wow”, said Terry, who’s level of excitement and happiness since visiting the show has never diminished. Before Arthur managed to beat Terry’s score of 60 cents, the latter was referred to as, “the happiest man in the studio right now. Claudette now has two new additions to her home on the farm, along with a rather expensive Patio Set (over $3000) she won in Contestant’s Row. Before playing the Grocery Game, Lisa mentioned off camera that she is among the folks who never knew a world without our host. John managed to tie Claudette’s score of 80 in Showcase Showdown #1 before getting $1.00 in his second spin. Today’s Showcases featured Sleepwear for the whole family, a Hovercraft, and a Lincoln automobile protecting “Rock Rocker, Retired Musician” from an old fan from many years ago. There was no overbid in today’s Showcase, but John’s difference was low enough to become our top winner today.

Dec. 26th 2005

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (#6128)
(Original Air Date 12-23-2004)

Clock Game: Layden wins Dining Room Table ($833); Portable Hot Tub ($899)

Half Off: Terri wins $10,000 (3 Halves; Box #6)

One Away: Tearether lost; Buick Century ($23,290)

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

Squeeze Play: Celina lost (Picked “9”); Piano ($8918)

Dice Game: David lost; Ford Ranger ($15,645)

Grocery Game: Darrious lost (Total $21.87); Bedroom Group

Showcase Showdown #2: Darrious wins with 85 cents

Showcase: Darrious wins; “Game Room” Showcase, Pinball Machine, Pool Table, Arcade Cabinet, and Trip to Morocco

Our journey into Price’s excellence begins with Darrious leaping from his front row, along with giving his fellow members of the row high fives, and finally his spot in Contestant’s Row. Florida’s rare variety of Layden was quite a rare character indeed, from bringing up the question of “Do I get to keep it?” for the first time ever in this game, even though he claims to know Clock Game. “You’re hurting me,” says Layden as Bob jokingly attempted to walk him off the Turntable after questioning the prize he shall keep no matter what. Despite being “so close”, says our Clock Game player, but his character and spirit remains intact at the very end. Like our previous contestant, Terri showed emotion of the rawest kind. I suppose a portion of the $10,000 in cash went toward Christmas gifts. After Tearether demonstrated her “run in place”, she made quick changes in the One Away price set for her. Even after 2 rounds of negative reaction from the audience and two changes (from the first “2” to “0”, which were correct), Tearether would still find out she lost. Showcase Showdown #1 featured not one, but two $1,000 winners including Layden and Terri. Representing a college sorority, Celina nearly rammed Bob into the Turntable before both the Piano and Squeeze Play were revealed. “Yes, Bob I love you!” were Darrious’ first words on stage after escaping Contestant’s Row at the very last minute. No $1,000 winner during this Showdown, but Darrious came back big with his final spin of the Big Wheel, bringing about a winning reaction consisting of leaps and a gorilla like chest beating. Showcase #2 featured the “Automatic Santa Machine”, or ASM. Both Showcase bids didn’t go very smoothly, especially with Darrious who managed to get Bob to understand his bid in less than a minute. We end today’s show with Darrious earning himself both a handshake and a pat on the back from our announcer Rich.
