When did the models stop wearing bikinis?
As a follow-up, when did they start? I don't remember the models wearing them in the early days of TPIR.
I walk into Barker's Bargain Bar to find some deals. I notice the men's department and encounter some Temptation. I go over and look at some t-shirts trying to figure out which one is 1/2 Off. One shirt has Five Price Tags on it for some reason so I must go to the price scanner to find out which is the One Right Price. Next I go over to the slacks and see a sign, "2 for the Price of 1." I figure the Clearance Sale price is around $40 each. Seeing that it's a good deal, I Take Two. Time is running short, so I hurry over to the shoes department to see if I can Pick a Pair for my meeting tomorrow. I find the perfect shoes, hurry back to the Check-Out and hand the clothes to the clerk so she can ring them up. She tells me the Actual Retail Price for all the items, and I discover...

THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

Have a nice day.

Regarding Spelling Bee: has there ever been an instance of a contestant picking both CAR cards in addition to spelling 'CAR'?

Then that makes at least twice it happened, since I seem to recall a male contestant doing the same thing (somewhere around 1994 or 1995). I don't think any video of it is on YouTube, though.

Regarding Range Game, has there ever been a time that the ARP was in the top $50 or bottom $50 of the range? Is there anything that prohibits the producers from setting it up that way?

I know it's been in the top quarter on very rare occasions.  I have no way to prove it, but I feel safe saying it's never been in the area the rangefinder starts in for the simple reason that that'd look really stupid.

Not the bottom $50, but in the S40 premiere you could have won without the rangefinder moving.
