Bathing suits

Pontoon boat

Elizabeth bids $22,000

Elizabeth bid $22,000, ARP is $15,895 OVER
Holly bid $18,222, ARP is $17,065 OVER


This was a rather fair show. Golden Road was played for a nice car, the contestant made it to the end, there were two nice wins, but there was, sadly, a double overbid.

$7,304 for a curio cabinet?!?! Where did they get that? Was it made of gold or something?
Poor Holly and Elizabeth... I felt bad for them after what happened in the showcase. Were pontoon boats really cheap back in the 80s? Sounds like it. What about Jeep Cherokees? Were those cheap as hell as well in the 80s?
I heard that this was Tom Kennedy's finale. That true? If so, must have been depressing to go out with a double overbid.

The Jeep CHerokee offered to five time winners on the early episodes of High Rollers in 1987, taped about 18 months or so after the last Kennedy TPIR was taped(I believe February 1986 were the final tapings) was worth $14,500 as per Dean Goss when it was plugged. However, they stopped offering the car for five time winners several weeks into the run, and the show never had a five time champ until after they stopped offering it.
