Cornelius: And the actual retail price is... Oh, it's heartbreak for two. $899 (cue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4KNQPgzO0k) Join me, htmlcc92. Poor Bandon23 and SuperSweeper, over by a dollar and two dollars. But, htmlcc92, I have some prizes for you behind these doors.

(cue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mklldba4Dbk)



Jalin: A fabulous trip to Boston and a fabulous trip to Miami!


Jalin: First, you and a guest will fly round-trip coach from Los Angeles to Boston, MA, aboard Delta Airlines.


Jalin: You will have a 6-night stay at THE WESTIN BOSTON WATERFRONT. Minutes away from the best of Boston. And we include tickets to see the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots games.


Jalin: Second, you and a guest will fly round-trip from Los Angeles to Miami, FL, about American Airlines.


Jalin: You will have a six-night stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami. Minutes away from walking in the sands of Miami Beach. And we include tickets to see the Miami Marlins and Miami Dolphins games.


Cornelius: Htmlcc92, we're playing Barker's Bargain Bar (AKA The Bargain Game). Now take a look at the prices for Boston and Miami. Those prices are wrong, but they are below the actual retail price of the trips. My question to you is this: Which one is the bigger bargain? Is it Boston?


$5,450

Cornelius: Or is it Miami?


$4,125

I think I will go with my gut and say Miami is the bigger bargain. I'm horrible at pricing trips though!
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Cornelius: And the actual retail price is... $860 (cue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4KNQPgzO0k). Join me, SuperSweeper. We got some winning to do. Now, SuperSweeper, we have three winners in a row, and if you win the next pricing game, it would be our pleasure to give you this.


Jalin: A new car! (cue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4jtgdPMosk#t=17) The 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 S. A four-door sedan delivering small-car fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. With the fuel efficient 182-hp engine, you'll get both efficient performance and the long lasting value you deserve. Amazing gas mileage and strong, smooth power delivery add up to a winning combination. The Nissan Altima 2.5 S!


Cornelius: SuperSweeper, we're playing Lucky Seven. Now, I will show you the first number in the price of the car which is...

$2__ __ __ __

Cornelius: I will also give you seven $1 bills, and if you have one dollar left over after the game, you win the car. Now, you will give me numbers that you think is in the price of the car. Get it exactly right, and you keep your money, but each time you miss a number, I will take money away from you. Now with that in mind, what do you think is the next number in the price of the car?
