WIN!

Since Lisa and Teresa failed to win their way up on stage the first five times, this represents their last chance to avoid the FFBC. Will one, or possibly both, end up there? Can one of them finally escape?

Lisa: $796
Teresa: $797*

Teresa makes it out at the last possible moment, while Lisa is headed off to the FFBC. We later find out that Teresa works in the bakery section of her local grocery store, so she should do well in the next game.

GP2: Polident (guesses $7.99, ARP--$5.59)

Difference: $4.58

LOSS

Poor Teresa; well, you can't blame her son David, who's a checker at the same grocery store, because he helped as best as he could. Instead of the usual foghorn, the buzzer goes off for this loss.

SCSD2
Leroy: .75
Teresa: .55+.50=OVER
Raymond: .50+.75=OVER

Leroy is going to the Showcase!

SHOWCASES

SHOWCASE 2

Apparently, the SFX people fell asleep during the first Showcase, because they forgot to ring the bell on Alfredo's bid.

ARP of Leroy's Showcase: $34,178 (Difference: $7,678)
ARP of Alfredo's Showcase: $24,203 (Difference: $8,303)

Leroy wins his Showcase, and takes home $35,376 in cash and prizes!
