I wonder if this is what our TPiR would have looked like if Syd got his way.

I know no Spanish, but I could pretty much tell what was going on.  It seemed like the whole show was a big commercial for the Chedraui supermarket.  Marco Antonio Regil seems like a pretty good host.  I like how he did the Barker false reveal during Hole in One.  And what was with the contestant doing the inspiration putt?  I love their version of the losing horns.

Of course, Marco is a good host.  He was one of the many candidates to take over our Price when Barker retired.

A) For someone that's new to watching Mexican television, that's usually the norm for shows like that.  Remember, however, that game shows in the old days used to be just like that - a major sponsor had advertising all over the show.  I'm not necessarily against that if it helps the budget out but there's a point of over-saturation.  What wasn't brought up here so far - and I'm digging - was the PiP (picture in picture) sponsorship for the Chevy.  Some on the board probably won't like it, but I think the current producers should offer it if it helps the budget out once again.  You're still showing a car - they get a four-to-five second logo showing, everyone's happy.  Besides, with the equipment they have - it wouldn't be too hard to do.

B) Agreed; he's no Andrew O'Keefe but he's pretty darn close.

Looks good; I hope I get to see more episodes. Marco is always a top-notch host, and I'm glad this set doesn't look like a cheap recreation of the American version. It also made me giggle that this version managed to combine video screens and big doors, which would have made our Stateside debate moot.

Lots of games have debuted on TPiR since the demise of the old Atinale, and towards the beginning Antonio mentioned that this version would have a mix of classic and new games. On this show we saw the Marco's-version debut of Flip Flop, Balance Game, and That's Too Much!

Flip Flop became "Aguila o sol?" which to us would be like "Heads or Tails?" (...although they call it "Eagle or sun?", which, if you looked at their coins, would seem totally reasonable.) So, for each half of the price, the contestant has to decide whether they would rather show "heads", 39, or "tails", 93.  Marco elaborated that you can have "Heads/Heads", "Tails/Tails" or "Tails/Heads", but "Heads/Tails", the original price, would be wrong. It's a small but interesting twist on our version. The one bad thing I can think of to say about it is that it clouds the issue of whether the mysterious "Domino Game" from the previous Atinale was supposed to be Flip Flop or not.

"Balance Game" becomes "Contrapeso", or "Counter-weight". Nothing was too out of the ordinary here, except the platforms on the balance were too small for the money bags. I was practically biting my nails waiting for that big bag to fall off the left side.

"That's Too Much" translated as "Esta Carisimo", or "It's Way-Expensive". Wihle Marco's hosting is usually extraordinarily faithful to Barker's, he comes up with a more succinct explanation of TTM!: "As long as the price is lower than the car, that's OK, but on the first one that's higher you have to say "Esta carisimo!" Also like Barker, Marco specifies that you have to shout it, "like you're offended".

Did you notice that because of the one-player showcase, the two showcase showdown winners have to have a spin-off, which Marco notes, is not for prizes? That was the only change I didn't like. While we're on the subject, the car awarded for getting $1 in the bonus spin was a really-loaded Camaro that would've been expensive even for the US version. Without having checked for the correct exchange rate, I'd say it was probably worth over $40,000US.

Actually, as per XE.com, it was US$36,959.

I love hearing the everyone shout ¡¡UN AUTO!! Looks like they've also decided to omit the first commercial break as well.

Interesting that their top prize on Plinko is only about $8,000 US.

Also sounded to me like they borrowed our "Scale" SFX from Balance Game.

Their budget in general isn't close to ours (except that the Showcase Showdown's Camaro is easily worth more than $25,000). Their IUFBs are mostly in the $200-$400 range, pricing game packages vary a lot but are around $1,000-$2,000 (sometimes above or below). Punch a Bunch is played for $30,000 MXP and It's in the Bag is for $40,000; US$2,500 and $3,300 respectively. The cars are also cheap by our standards; some are barely worth $10,000, and most of the time they're below $15,000. (And with their 6-digit prices, they're also harder to win.)

The audience and contestants look like they're having a lot of fun, regardless.

The show looks like so much fun, but my goodness, that Wheel beep is obnoxious.

The first six episodes are all up on that user's YouTube account.

You might notice that in 6-digit Cubre-Precios/ Cover Up, there is only one choice for the first digit, so the game is basically the same as the 5-digit version.

So much for that, since the videos have been removed...only to be put on another channel: megaAtinale100.  You can also find videos of 100 Mexicanos Dijeron, although I find the host for that much less tolerable than Marco.

There's still someone else posting them, a user named MegaAtinale100.

I've been following this series very closely, ever since I saw Marco on "Que Dice la Gente?" on my local Univision network and because, well, Spanish is my first language. He's a terrific game show host and you can tell he learned a lot of what he does by watching Bob. The only part I don't really like is the Showcase portion, simply because they adapted the Davidson way of doing it. There was a lot more suspense when they had two "gran paquetes".
