Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (OAD: 5-5-2009)

Aug. 27th 2009

Cover Up: Katherine lost; Chevy Impala ($25,134)

Most Expensive: John lost; Clothing, Motorscooter, and Home Waterfall

Shell Game: Courtney wins (Shell #2 contained Ball); Trip to Cleveland, Ohio and $500

Showcase Showdown #1: Courtney wins with 85 cents

Bullseye: John hits $10.17; Trip to Hawaii

Showcase Showdown #2: John wins with 80 cents

Showcase: Courtney wins; Living Room Group, Electronic Reader, and Pontiac G3 ($35,037 in prizes)

Today’s first Item Up for Bids, a TV Set, included the sort of lights viewers got to see for many years at the beginning and middle of the show. “Twenty-one thousand, eight hundred sixty-one dollars, is she right?” Drew quickly shouted after Katherine’s first chance in Cover Up. Renee sounded confident when she repeated “one dollar” on the second prize up for bids, but she could not decide between one dollar, one thousand dollars, and one hundred dollars. Courtney, who almost fell upon her arrival on stage, got to play Shell Game. “We hardly play this game, we haven’t played this game in a while, so you’re lucky”, Drew acknowledged about Shell Game. Drew’s quick reveal of the ball and Courtney’s quick departure from the Turntable set came at the expense of building suspense and a few more seconds of the host with the winner on camera. Renee ran over to her new Camper, jumped in, and fell out from the side in which she came. “Dive, dive, dive”, said Drew after everyone in Contestant’s Row overbid for the second time on the fifth Item Up for Bids, a Barbecue Grill. Michael was down on his knees after the Ford Focus was revealed. After he won Line ‘Em Up on his last chance after getting none of the three digits in the price of the Ford automobile with her first chance, Michael ran over to his prize and put his head through the driver’s side window. John, a combat engineer for the Army, got to play Bullseye. “You’re going to Hawaii thanks to the fish sticks”, said Drew after John won the game with three boxes of Fish Fillet. Today’s Showcases featured a Trip to Hawaii, India, and a Pontiac G3. We end today’s show with Courtney and her crew sitting on her new couch.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (OAD: 5-4-2009)

Aug. 26th 2009

Freeze Frame: Imran lost; Trip to Argentina ($8860)

Half Off: Tiffany wins $500 (One Half and Box #15); Box #4 contained $10,000

Any Number: Cora wins Outdoor Clock ($963); Ford F-150 ($22,487 )

Showcase Showdown #1: Imran wins with 95 cents

Hi Lo: Jenni wins; Kitchen Set

Squeeze Play: Alvester lost (removed “6”); Hot Tub ($8694)

Pocket Change: Joshua lost with $1.00 ($1.75 for car); Mercury Milan ($21,397)

Showcase Showdown #2: Alvester wins with 90 cents

Showcase: Alvester wins; Desktop Computer, Trip to San Francisco, California, $300 Gift Card, Blu-Ray Player, 37-inch TV, and Trip to Japan ($22,260 in prizes)

The writer could not see the show in a high-definition format today due to his local station’s inability to display distracting weather graphics over a high-definition picture. Drew made his entrance swinging his arms right and left. Imran, a student from the University of Southern California and a member of the MBA program, got to play Freeze Frame for a holiday in Argentina, which, according to Drew, has “great food” and is a place “where everybody is on the Atkins diet” (a joke). The audience was cheering louder than usual during Half Off as Box #15 was being brought over to Tiffany, a student of criminal law from Kent State and a resident of Akron, Ohio. Cora continued to jump as she gave the first few numbers in the price of the Ford F-150 in Any Number. Jenni, bearing a shirt with an image of Drew with the body of Superman, got to play Hi Lo. “Look at the bargain [of] lotion you got for $3.99”, said Drew after Jenni won the game. Joshua was at a loss for words, or speechless, upon his arrival on stage and so am I after Drew treated the Mercury Milan as part of a fictional car lot with his helper (model) as the dealer. Today’s Showcases featured a Texas Hold ‘Em Game Table, Four Motorcycles, and a Trip to Japan. Alvester and Imran’s differences were very close to being tied, but Alvester became today’s Showcase winner.

Today’s Airing of The Price is Right (OAD: 5-1-2009)

Aug. 25th 2009

Pushover: Joshua wins; Mini Cooper ($19,450)

Plinko: Eloisa wins $11,500 with 4 Plinko chips

Race Game: Matthew wins; Dining Room Table, Picnic Equipment, Golf Set, and Necklace

Showcase Showdown #1: Joshua wins with 75 cents

Range Game: Nancy lost; Iron Bed ($4223)

Stack the Deck: Wanda lost (won “6” and “8”); Ford Focus ($16,872)

Showcase Showdown #2: Jocelyn wins with 95 cents

Showcase: Jocelyn wins; Pair of Rolex Watches and a Trip to Jamaica, Saint Louisa, and Antigua in the Caribbean ($30,429 in prizes)

Joshua, bearing an image of Drew on his shirt, got to play Pushover. “That is the price”, said Joshua as some members of the audience reacted negatively toward $19,450 for the Mini Cooper. “Flip it if you think that’s the right price”, Drew told Joshua at the expense of creating suspense himself. Jocelyn was called to come on down, but all she had to do was come on over from her seat in the front row to her left. Eloisa, a student from the University of Southern California with the number 32 on her clothing, insisted on a different pronunciation of her name (EL-O-a-SA rather than EL-O-E-SA) upon her arrival on stage. “I bet the next one has something to do with baseball”, Drew supposed before the third small prize in Plinko. Drew almost touched Eloisa’s last Plinko chip as he was eager to pick it up from its eventual slot of $500. In Race Game, the camera shot of each price getting removed by Drew was awkward due to his order of removing them before giving them to Matthew, who came to the show from Cleveland, Ohio, the host’s hometown. “A new world record!” Drew shouted after Matthew completed Race Game with 37 seconds left. After Drew reminded Nancy of the Riding Lawn Mower she won in Contestant’s Row, she sounded very happy and surprised. Wanda shared her story of wrecking a friend’s car on the way to the show and Drew would repeat this part of the story at the end of Stack the Deck and during Showcase Showdown #2. Wanda alternated between saying a generic name (“Pain reliever”) and brand name (“Hot Pockets”) in Stack the Deck. “Turn the—“, said Drew as Jocelyn began to turn the spin dial in Safe Crackers. Today’s Showcases featured island hopping and interaction with Rich Fields. Joshua passed his Showcase since he recently returned from Mexico, but his Showcase included a Trip to the Kentucky Derby, a Bar Set, and a Ford Mustang. “Yeah, baby, two (cars) in a row!” Joshua shouted after the Ford automobile was revealed. After Jocelyn won her Showcase, Drew acknowledged his continuation of the reminder to “help control to pet population”, but said he really meant it. We end this week’s worth of shows with Drew hugging Jocelyn’s co-attendant from the studio audience.

Drew once again had his arm around his helper’s (model) back after receiving his cordless microphone. “Drew, make the 14th anniversary of my 29th birthday the best” were the words on Rebecca’s shirt, as read by the host. James received some great applause after choosing to remove the first “9” in Squeeze Play instead of the “2” to win the Plasma TV Set. Joan, a retired corrections officer for New York, New York, got to high-five Drew after finding her spot in Contestant’s Row with the help of the host and a fellow contestant. Deborah wanted to “do the bump” with Drew and they did before playing Gas Money. The loud International House of Pancakes advertisement made its return before Showcase Showdown #1. Rebecca appeared in both a frontal camera shot of the Big Wheel as she started to spin and the triangle camera shot during her bonus spin. Drew allowed Rich Fields to tell viewers how they could get tickets to visit the show. “Drew. Tell Us. Boy or Girl”, Kevin’s shirt asked before Drew answered by reading a card from a previously unopened envelope. Kevin leaped off the stage to hug his wife upon learning they will have a boy. Drew reminded viewers “it’s a boy” after the next commercial break, but did not tell viewers who may just be tuning in who would be having the child. The last Item Up for Bids, a Video Camera, provided viewers with its own view of the host, who interacted with the camera and its holder in a silly way. Scott, a voice teacher, raised his eyebrow a few times as he used his key to open the padlock for the Honda Civic in Master Key. Drew used the other key by himself to unlock the Compact Disc Recorder after Scott ran off to get into his Honda automobile. Today’s Showcases featured a Cruise of the Orient, Rich Fields asking Scott if he ever imagined himself wearing clothes found in a fashion magazine (yes), and a Trip to Milan, Italy. We end today’s show with a camera shot of Scott’s $500 being used as a fan, by not Drew, but by one of his helpers.
