Hi everybody. Long time reader, first time contributor here. A comment on this particular episode first: I can't believe no one mentioned that all of the one-bids were under $1000. I don't think this has happened since the mid 90s, if memory serves. I would really, really be surprised if this is not the last time this ever occurs.

Second, a few comments on Drew. I like him as a comedian and a sitcom star; I began taping episodes of The Drew Carey Show beginning with the series premiere on ABC and continued taping until about the fifth season. However, as TPIR host, his style seems quite lazy to me. Overall, he doesn't seem very good at explaining the rules of the games or even remembering them at times. Two specific things for now: He hardly ever mentions the money in Money Game, and he currently almost always doesn't explain Bonus Game before the bonus prize is displayed. Bonus is probably my favorite game (partly because of the reveal).

Glad to be here and share. By the way, I grew up in the 70s and 80s watching game shows like The Joker's Wild, Tic Tac Dough, Face the Music, Family Feud, Scrabble, Password Plus, Card Sharks, and others, and watching Bob Barker regularly on Price and the Miss USA and Universe pageants. I'm a game show kid who wanted to be a game show host back then. Still think it'd be a cool job.

Thanks.

Welcome to the site!  For starters,  just a friendly notice that there's a rule around here about bumping up topics that are more than 30 days old.

I can't believe no one mentioned that all of the one-bids were under $1000. I don't think this has happened since the mid 90s, if memory serves. I would really, really be surprised if this is not the last time this ever occurs.

No idea where you're getting this from.  On this particular show, three of the six one-bids were higher than $1,000.

Sure he does.  I can only remember two instances, between both seasons 36 and 37 combined, where he didn't.

Thanks for the welcome.

I should rephrase. All of the bids from the contestants in Contestant's Row were under $1000. I didn't mean the actual retail prices.

I definitely can remember more than that. Bob almost always gave a running total of the money as the game was played, and a final total at the end. Very often Drew just says "you have 4 chances" and doesn't give a total, running or final.

there's a rule around here about bumping up topics that are more than 30 days old.
One reason GameShowKid might have bumped this thread is because this episode (6/26) was rerun on August 31, and that was when he first saw this episode, so he decided to give his comments on it.
