I remember when that happened sometime in the late '90s. One contestant bid something like $20000 on a cruise showcase (which seemed kind of high in those days), and turned out not to be over, much to the shock of the opposing contestant, who had played the risky $1 bid.
"Atinale el precio" moment: Contestant Laila has jumped into Marco's arms and taken his microphone.

Laila: "How much do I weigh? Give me your bid."
Marco: "Er...without going over?"

I KNEW IT HAPPENED!

...Sorry. I haven't been watching the show all that much lately, and whenever I hear of a $1 Showcase bid I always thought "Hey, has a contestant gotten stupid like that?" ...And it happened.

...Wow.
==============
As for today's show...hm. Temptation is always fun, but the not-revealing of those other Hi-Lo prices would've upset me, as well.

This episode was intended for January 20, but because of the Inauguration, it was rescheduled to today.

Okay, it's gotta be said -- Drew looked like a complete douchebag for his entire entrance on this show.  I can't believe people actually started chanting his name after that -- it made me want to chant "Bob!"

Temptation was evil.  Making the second number a choice between 3 and 4 was bizarre.

Speaking of Temptation, they really need not to screw with its music.  The four traditional cues are a huge part of the game's charm -- it never feels right without them.

"Hey, Debra!  Do you like exercising?"  "No..."  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why the correct way to start one of these showcases is, "This showcase begins with a complete home gym!"

That's Too Much:  What a strange, strange setup.  Has there ever been such a lowball starting price as $11,498?  Steve?

I'm pretty sure that early on, the first one or two prices were sometimes under $10,000, even though they hadn't offered a 4-digit car in several years at that point.

I remember when that happened sometime in the late '90s. One contestant bid something like $20000 on a cruise showcase (which seemed kind of high in those days), and turned out not to be over, much to the shock of the opposing contestant, who had played the risky $1 bid.

Years ago, Nick Mooneyhan had up a clip from the early '80s where somebody bid $1 in the Showcase...and the other contestant won both showcases. :)  One of the neatest clips I've ever seen.  (...or heard, actually, now that I think of it.)

I said the EXACT SAME THING to myself when I heard her answer to that. Rich did a good job of not making it more awkward than it was, but still. It just looked BAD.

Temptation: There's always that tempting cash that makes me want to take the prizes. I probably would've said 3 for the second number. I would still lose some way if I went for the car.

Cliff Hangers: For a moment, I thought we had an edit because I was yodeling along very loud that I did not hear the stopping ding. That was a lucky save; I thought the Yodelly Guy was doomed again.

One Bid 3: "A double drawer dishwasher?"

Side by Side: I just don't see how it can be 2838 in the first place...

One Bid 4: Am I supposed to laugh at Drew? I did a little.

That's Too Much!: I was thinking, "Did we just play this not too long ago? I think we're playing this game too much."

Hi-Lo: Oh, those darn bags!

One Bid 6: Oh, those darn bids from Andrew (and David)!

Push Over: Oh, how much darn time it took for Debra to push!

Showcases: Liked how they utilized both MGHS cues in the first Showcase. Speaking of HS, I laughed at seeing the H2 billboard in that 'roided New York trip. It was almost like a plug for the Chicago station. Boy, every time I see someone bid 1 on their Showcase, they always win. From browsing the thread, it looks like it has not happened 100% of the time.

The prices were revealed, as noted on page 2, but editted out of the show.

Temptation: YAYYYYY!!!!  :-) :-) Even though the fish bowl contained a mere $1199, It was still worth not taking a chance at the car. Poor Debra was duped in.  :-(

Cliff: Drew, Please just let Hans stop when he knows when. Gereshom saved himself from disaster after coming out big time on that Voice Recorder. Good job.

Side: Very nice.

TTM: Alyssa and I had it together. Yes!!  :-D

Hi Lo: EGAD!!! Those expensive-a** trash bags!!! Double EGAD for the shoddy editing!!  :-x

Push: Why........was.......this.......playing .......so.......slow?  :-P

Showcasea: ...and the award for most hilarious response of thwe year goes to Debra V. for giving the long-awaited answer we all wanted to hear after all the times Rich asks these crazy questions before a showcase. I really wasn't impressed with the New York super showcase. ISure, it sounded like a cool package, but it just felt a tad over-the-top. Debra F. better be glad it wasn't as worse if her $1 bid backfired.

A 2.75-star show.

A note about the New York showcase, it's probably the first time in quite some time that the prize card on the showcase podium were a specific place.  I know on the November 18, 1996 show, a card that just said "St. Croix" was used (it was a "Main Street" showcase).



Also, for those who may have missed it, here is that picture, that showed a promotion for Hollywood Squares on WCBS-TV.

This was reran today (7/17/09).  Augh, what a fail!

I missed the first two PG's, so no comment.  Failhorn at me for missing Cliffhangers AND Temptation :(

Second half featured three of the hardest games: That's Too Much! (that was actually the first time I've ever seen that game won) at 1:10 odds, Hi-Lo at 1:120 odds (although that's not counting the french toast sticks - they're definitely not $7.99), and Push-Over at 1:5 (any one of those five could have been it).

The showcases were downright ridiculous - a FRBS (freakin' random boat showcase, in case you haven't heard the terminology before) and a one-tripper (one trip but you get a lot of stuff on that trip)?  I would have just said "no thanks" and went home.

Absurdity at its finest, ladies and gentlemen.

I was so excited to see Temptation on this rerun and then let down when the proper cues weren't played after the first prize...oh well. To be expected nowadays, I suppose.
