May 3, 2003: TPIR MDS #4
« on: April 12, 2018, 03:22:07 PM »
As of this MDS, we are now guaranteed to see at least one Million-Dollar Spin over the course of the show; which means that if neither SCSD has it, then there will be one for the Showcase winner. Also, the red carpet on the Turntable is gone, and replaced with a new blue one.

First Four: Christine, Mark, Orelia, Derone

For the first time in this series, Bob enters through the Big Doors, but he is still introduced as the star of the Million-Dollar Price is Right.

Derone wins four picks from the five price tags

Third guess: $51,910? WIN!

On to the second round we go...

Diane is going to the Showcase, with $1,000 in her pocket! The studio lights are still not dimmed when the Million-Dollar Spin takes place.

Easily one of the best MDS' ever. Can't wait for recaps on the rest.

As of this MDS, we are now guaranteed to see at least one Million-Dollar Spin over the course of the show; which means that if neither SCSD has it, then there will be one for the Showcase winner.

How did you find this out?

Per the FAQ:
Quote
Week 30 (1,251 252xK): April 28-May 2 + night of Saturday, May 3
  • This is the first MDS to guarantee at least one million dollar spin. The spin is awarded to the Showcase winner if no one hits a dollar during the Showcase Showdowns; if there are no dollars and there is a double overbid, a random person is called from the audience to spin. The "random person" in the double overbid scenario does not lose his eligibility to be a regular contestant.
