Fun show, one of the last shows of the half-hour format.
It was nice of Bert Convy to drop in and congratulate Bob on "TPiR" expanding to an hour and the most exciting moment of this show is when Margaret won her car in Any Number, I definitely could tell she wanted to win that second car in the show because she was going "TWO! TWO!" but she didn't good enough.

This was also the last week w/ two models on the show because that following week, Dian joined the show on a permanent basis, she actually made her debut around May or June of 1975 as a substitute model and she appaeared on "TPiR's" trial hour-long week, wearing a brunette wig, making people think she was Anitra (who was replaced by Barbara for that week of shows).

This had to be one of the early playings of the Poker Game because if you looks at the ten spaces on the board, they were white and it was played again on the first hour-long show, they were black and more easier to see.  Most Expensive was also played on the first hour long show but I didn't care too much for that second setup, that 1984-2009 setup was more my fave and I always liked the close ups of the Barker Beauty and the price tag.

Nice and decent show.
"Say whatever you want to about me, my artwork, etc, I don't really care.
If you don't want me or even like me, then I'm DAMN sure am not gonna let myself want OR
like YOU !"

^ That's my message to all you haters and people who are negative when it comes to me.
