In a similar vain to this showcase round - what would happen if both contestants in the Showcase were tied?

Then they would both win their showcase! :)

No, I meant if both contestants went into the Showcase with the same amount of prizes already won. (ex. First half winner wins $1,500 IUFB and a $27 small prize. Second half winner wins $527 IUFB, loses PG, and gets $1,000 on the wheel. They both have $1,527)

Has this ever happened on the real show?

I'll wager a shot at the better Big Wheel performance being the decisive factor.  If THAT ends up identical (both players get 65 cents for example), they could break it down to 1 spin/2 spins tiebreak, higher first spin, etc.

If STILL tied, they probably flip a coin.

Not even that complicated - the show just goes to picking numbers out of a hat right away.

The same is true if two contestants happen to have the same amount won before the Showcase Showdown.

And yes, it's happened before.

Why would they not plan down to the dollar to make sure a tie is not possible regardless of whether the pricing games are won or lost?

Not worth the hassle to double check every single show, especially because Strange things can happen. ($1 in Grand Game, Plinko is far too unpredictable, etc)
