October 14, 1987: Bob's Last-Ever Dark-Haired Show
« on: September 17, 2009, 10:09:19 AM »
We all saw this coming: that Bob would stop dying his hair and let it go white. This is my first time ever doing a TPIR recap, so here we go...

First Four: Julie, Michael, Angela, Jeannine

Before the first IUFB, Bob has the audience say "Helloooooooooo, Shirley!" (Paul Alter's wife)

Angela: $799
Jeannine: $450

Bob and Rod discuss Rod's weight loss, in which Rod teases Bob that he has lost 70 pounds, when in reality, he only lost 69! Bob is not happy with this, and then Rod has trouble pronouncing the name of the next contestant.

Now Michael, who has been in Contestant's Row since Bob's entrance through the Big Doors, is down to his final chance to win his way on stage. Otherwise, he'll be sent to the dreaded FFBC. How will this last One-Bid turn out?

And Michael is going to the FFBC...Meanwhile, Alexandra proceeds to scare and annoy the hell out of Bob during her time on stage. Bob must be thinking in his mind: "Oh no, not another Samoan!" (After all, we all know what Pauline did to him some seven years earlier, when she notched the first-ever Grand Game win.)
