Playing through pain

I did use a search engine.  Looking for the recap summary for the show this lady played.

Here's a few tips when you use Google in order to find an episode:
-Use key terms in quotes. Knowing the bids of the contestants, the contestant's name, and the ARP of the IUFB, you could get 6 terms to put in quotes: "650" "1000" "801" "800" "1,375" "Cathy"
-Know to just search certain websites. You best bets for classic episodes are qwizx.com and golden-road.net. You can search the website specifically by typing site:website.com in a search engine.
-Just look at the overall 2-line description Google gives you. That can help determine if you are in the right.

Any case, here is the link to a QWIZX and Joe_Capitano recap.

Episode #4945K, aired 10/9/2009. That just goes to show that if you are doing a crime, you don't get on a gameshow to expose yourself. That reminds me of a similar event, when a criminal actually won on Super Password.
Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

Thanks, TPIRfan#9821.  I normally don't post here but given that I never get to watch the show I always come here to review the recaps. 

The negative reactions made me take a deep breath with each post because the other posters assumed I knew how to do things.  Turns out, I was clueless.

I just came back from LA to see a show and already I'm planning to go back in February.  I know there are a lot of people on this forum who got to "come on down" and I also have the gist of what the contestant coordinators look for in choosing who gets to site in contestants row.  One way to describe it: think of it as going to a job interview.  The boss hires 9 out of every 300 people who show up for a one-day job of properly pricing merchandise and you might make a few dollars and if you do things right you might even get to drive a new car!  I might be disappointed for not getting picked but I always tell myself maybe next time.  That's it for now.
