Message to the "$420" bidder from 10/21...
« on: October 26, 2010, 07:08:28 PM »
As a result of your lame "Bet $420 every time" stunt (she did it 5X's!), you earned yourself screen time in the "Contestants not appearing on stage" segment. Hope it was worth it!  8-)

I second you post.  She took a chance to be on TPIR from a Contestant who 1) Wasn't a selfish idiot, 2)  Had working brain cells, 3) That actually was serious about being on TPIR and playing the game with integrity and seriousness.

Bidding between $1-$49 more that a previous bidder when you ARE NOT the last bidder in the sequence makes you a MORON.

I guess she wanted to be the next YouTube sensation.  She isn't.  Because, of course, she is not the only one to do it.  To me, if Bob was there, he should have said "She bids $420, (next person) what do you bid?" without that girl saying anything.  I believe he has done that before.  I guess the only good thing she got out of it, besides the tv time and prizes (for not appearing), is her own post on G-R.net!!  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is priceless! :-D

All I can say to the person(s) that chose her, "WHAT A WASTE!!!"

Why does this thread exist?  It's ridiculously unlikely that that girl's ever going to come here, she's not going to be welcomed if she does, and we're not accomplishing anything good by lengthening her rapidly fleeting 15 minutes.

On a side note, the video of the moron from a few years back whose bids all contained "420" has over 2 million views on YouTube.

Am I the only one who is disappointed that the 5th search suggestion down on YT upon typing "Price is Right" is "Price is Right 420"?

I second Steve's remarks.  I'll also add that this thread was started by a spammer.  The screen name and link in the signature give it away.

If this girl wanted a parody of the show, she had it.

Bob would have a little pleasure to bash her, IMO :)

And yes, what a waste.

Not just any spammer, "rp perez" -- he's created at least 4 different accounts since I've been here, all advertising his always poorly designed websites.

(His last account plugged a poorly designed Erin Andrews porn site...)
