George, I need just one more name from you today.  Who is it?

It's Hag!  Come on down, you're the next contestant on The Price is Right!

(applause)(Walking 2007)

Hag has made it all the way down to the end of Contestants' Row.  I welcome you to the show, Hag, and over there is the next item up for bids!

(door #3 opens)(1994 Theme 6)



It's an inflatable spa!

(applause)(Holly models it)

From Comfort Line Products, the Airi spa is the world's first true "Air Frame Spa," combining incredible affordability with new innovative air frame design in this 250-gallon capacity spa. The AiriSpa is perfect for parties, holidays, or anytime family fun is a necessity!

May I have your bid on that, Hag?

That thing looks like it's got holes on the side. :lol:

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

FamilyFeud1994's time is up and because this is the second time he missed his turn to bid, he is eliminated from the show.  The actual retail price of the spa is $1,689, and Hag wins it!

DINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDING(applause)(Walking 2007)

Hag is coming back to join me at the big doors for the next pricing game.  How are you Hag?  You have an interesting opportunity; you are the first contestant in over three years to win prizes in a particular game?  I'm sure some of you have a good idea of what I'm talking about, but Hag, feast your eyes on these!

(door #2 opens)(The Cats)



A brass telescope and a new HDTV!

(applause)



First, from Cape Cod Telescopes, the brass telescope is 34" long, has a 30x power, 60mm achromatic objective lens, roof prism erecting system.   It features a a positive finger-tip focusing system that allows definitive clarity at great distances and comes with a 52" tall tripod finished in solid oak!

(Kathleen models it)



Second, from Samsung, this 65" LED HDTV features a full 1080p resolution, and features the innovative Clear Motion Rate of 240 which allows you to experience sharp picture quality, even when you are watching fast-moving images like sports or action movies.  The Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended, from Samsung, and there they are, goldroadfanatic!

(Janice models it)

Hag, you're the first person since 2009 to play the Bargain Game.  Unfortunately, it is no longer named after the founder of The Price is Right, Ezekiel Barker.

(groans)

But you can still win the two prizes by picking the one with the bigger bargain, the one that is more below its actual retail price.  Is it the telescope at $1,180 or the HDTV at $1,350?

Give it up for Ezekiel Barker! *waves to the audience*

Goldroadfanatic, I'm going to say the TV is the bigger bargain.

Hag thinks the TV is the bigger bargain, so we'll start with the telescope.  Bargain price, $1,180, actual retail price…



Nineteen eighty, for a difference of…



DING

Eight hundred dollars.  Over to the TV, the bargain price is $1,350.  Actual retail price…



Twenty-six fifty, for a difference of….



Thirteen hundred dollars, you're a winner!

Enjoy those prizes, Hag!  We're going to have the second showcase showdown after this announcement!

(applause)(2007 CNAoS cue)

Contestants not appearing on stage will receive a new set of cordless phones!  From VTech, this seven handset DECT 6.0 expandable cordless phone features an answering system, voice announce caller ID, push-to-talk & HD audio!  And, a new sofa!  From Jennifer Convertibles, the Kurt sofa is upholstered in chocolate corduroy with tufted backs and deep seats.  And now, here's goldroadfanatic with our showcase showdown!



Thank you, George!  All three of these people beside me have won their pricing games.  thepriceis_J won a new car in Let 'em Roll, Cyclone won a piano in Bonkers, and Hag won two prizes in the Bargain Game.  Now let's see if we can give away as much as $26,000 on the wheel.  If you can score one dollar in one or a combination of two spins, you will win $1,000 and a bonus spin.  In the bonus spin, if you land on a green section, you will win $10,000 more, and if you land on that dollar again, you will win $25,000 more!

(cheers and applause)

The player with the highest score will advance to the showcase at the end of the show.  Hag, step over there and set the pace!

(beeps)

The second showcase showdown is underway.  Hag's first spin appears to be…

(beep)



Thirty cents; that is not enough for Hag, so here comes another spin!

(beeps)

What will we add to that 30 cents?  That 50 would be nice, but the 85 would be too much!

(beep)



MRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRP(applause)

You went over, Hag, but thank you for playing.  Now it's Cyclone's turn to try his luck!

Cyclone's time is up, so thepriceis_J, you are automatically advancing to the showcase!

(applause)

However, you have one spin to see if you can get a dollar or not.  Good luck!

Hold on a second.  I checked yesterday and we weren't in the showcase showdown; I must have checked just before the post about it and have been busy since then.  I just got a PM now about the missed turn.  If my numbers will be accepted, my standard 7 and 11 are them (EDIT staying on 60 on the first spin).

EDIT: thepriceisj also did not submit numbers, so there's a problem here.

Based on precedent, because thepriceis_J did not yet post his numbers, I will accept Cyclone's spins.

(beeps)

Cyclone is trying to establish a good score for thepriceis_J to beat and the wheel is slowing down on…

(beep)



Eighty cents, and he's staying!



DING(applause)

thepriceis_J, you need to beat 80 cents to go through to the showcase.  Good luck!

(Please submit two numbers from 1 to 20)

(Also, to everyone, don't rely on the thread title all the time, as it requires sideshow to update it.  Check the last post of the thread to what act the show is currently at.)

All right, thanks.

Just as an idea, as a courtesy for the two players not doing anything in the show at the moment (the first two to play in each half), sending a PM alerting to the showcase showdown (and in the case of the winner of the first showdown only, alerting to the showcase round) might be a good step to add for hosts in general, but I know this is a per-host preference what they do.  It would prevent some of these 24h timeouts however.  I was busy yesterday, but if I got a PM sometime after I actually checked in I would have been here to give my numbers by the evening at the latest.  I'm worried j might not even realize we're in the showcase showdown. :)
