19th Season Premeire: Sep. 10, 1990
« on: September 08, 2006, 10:04:40 PM »
This is my very first attempt at a recap. I hope you guys like it!

It is September 10, 1990. Revivals of Tic Tac Dough, The Joker’s Wild, Let’s Make A Deal, and To Tell The Truth are on the airwaves. MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” & Nelson’s “Love & Affection” rule the pop music scene. And most importantly (at least to this board), The Price Is Right kicks off it’s 19th season…

“Here it comes! Television’s most exciting hour of cash & prizes! It’s the fabulous 60-minute Price Is Right!

Sally Brewister, COME ON DOWN!
Rex Rogers, COME ON DOWN!
Mary Johnson, COME ON DOWN!
Angela Montoya, COME ON DOWN!

You are the first four contestants on The Price Is Right!
And now, as we begin our 19th year on CBS, here is the star of The Price is Right, BOB BARKER!”

IUFB: Honda NS50X Motorcycle

ARP: $1,798

Angela goes up to walk the GOLDEN ROAD for the most expensive prize ever offered on The Price Is Right, at over $57,000! (How times have changed…)

It starts with a box of, in Bob’s words, “Crispy Crunchy Treats” (has the word "Munchies" written on the bag…
…moves on to a Whirlpool Microwave…
…then an RCA 46” Stereo Monitor TV…
…and finally, a Cadillac Allante Convertible!


Angela picks the 4.
ARP: $413
She's right!

She picks the 3.
ARP: $2,349
Angela gets a chance at the car!

She picks the 9...
ARP: $57,283
She loses the car.

Before we cut to commercial, we get a special appearance from Mark Goodson!

He thanks everyone involved, and the Beauties wheel out a special trophy for Bob. It reads: “Bob Barker: 18 Consecutive Years as the Distinguished Host of America’s Favorite Game” Mark also says that if he does come back for another life, he wants to come back as Barker’s dog. Bob reminds him “I close every show with a spay/neuter plug!”

“Rocky Gray, COME ON DOWN!”

IUFB: JVC Stereo System
Rocky: $850
Mary: $900
Rex: $1,000

Rex comes up to play PLINKO!

Hoover Brush-Vac, priced at $95

Sunbeam Can Opener, priced at $15
Rex picks 5.
ARP: $35. RIGHT!

Rex gets all five chips, but how well does he do with them?

Try 1: $1,000
Try 2: $500
Try 3: $1,000
Try 4: $0
Try 5: $0

That’s a $2,500 payday for Rex.

$7_87 is the price painted under it. The distinguishing mark is on the far right; looks like a portion of a 3 or 8.
Mary paints a three in the space.
ARP: $7,387

And Mary becomes the first Gallery Game winner!
