At the beginning, Bob makes an Allen Ludden reference here, saying that this feels like College Bowl, another show Ludden used to host in addition to Password and its spinoffs. In addition, he alters his spiel to "nearer to the ARP without going over". This is because both participants are college students; Iluminada is from Fresno State, and Kim is from Illinois State.

ARP of Kim's Showcase: $19,411 (Difference: $8,411)
ARP of Iluminada's Showcase: $13,103 (Difference: $2,453)

Iluminada wins her Showcase, and takes home $15,755 in cash and prizes!

That was weird that Michael's 2nd spin was not buzzed.

I agree with that, although this was very common back then, especially since a previous spinner had gotten a dollar.
