*DING!*
*DING!*




Adam turns the other cheek on his row mates. Will it pay off for him? Let's see. The Actual Retail Price is...



And Adam gets the last laugh!



Come up here, Adam. Now, you've been here since the start of the show, but I hope it's been worth the wait. You've picked a fine time to come up here on stage.

Hoo boy, do we have a prize for you! Show him, Voice Man!

A NEW CAR!!!



*cue Passing Lane*

The 2019 Honda Fit EX! Comes with standard equipment plus 1.5 liter four cylinder engine, remote start, moonroof visor, and door edge guards. The Honda Fit!


And you can win it playing Cover Up!



A cover up is a concerted effort to keep illegal or unethical actions from becoming known. That definition has nothing to do with this game!

We see a price of $99,999 on that car. That claim of $99,999 was…uh, a slight exaggeration. We don’t know anything about how any of those numbers got there, and we absolutely would never try to inflate our prize values for accounting purposes. That would be extremely illegal!

So we’ve gotta do something about fixing that before our audit. Wait! Why don’t you help us by doing it for us?

Every single number in that price is wrong and needs to be corrected. Cover up the first digit with a two or a one. Cover up the second digit with a seven, eight, or zero. Cover up the third digit with four, seven, two, or six. And so on, and so on.

If you’re right, and you’re able to restore the actual price, you will win the car! And if you’re not… well, we don’t want that to happen. None of us want to be the subject of a fraud investigation, right? Cause let’s just say, if we’re going down, you’re going down with us.

Ready, Adam? Cover up!

pulls out my phone and starts pushing buttons before holding it up to my ear.

...Hello, IRS?  :P

Alright, now we all beat up Adam for not bidding $574.  :-D

punches Adam in the arm for not making that bid, which also would have won him the turntable.  :-D

Peanut gallery: $28k+ is the best guess you could make.  The 2 covers the case that it's $20,000+, and the 8 covers the case that it's $18,000+.  I can tell you though that the Fit EX is not gonna be $17,000 anything, so you should be guaranteed to get exactly one of the first two digits right and get a guaranteed third guess.

Man, it's a good thing you didn't make it out of Contestant's Row; S&P wouldn't have liked that you didn't turn in your phone before the taping,ya cheater :P

Peanut Gallery: I would personally guess $10,xxx to begin with. I doubt a Honda Fit is $27k+, so this forces you to get exactly one of the first two numbers right, which gives you at least two more chances to get the price right.

If I were to take a one-shot guess, I'd go either $18,254 or $17,744, since I feel that the options somehow add up with something ending with a 9 plus something ending in a 5. The former is the smallest $18,xx4 value you can get without repeating a digit, while $17,744 is just a jerk move due to two pairs of repeating digits, and I feel like this setup falls in one of those two categories.
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.

HYO total winnings: $69,829

This is a flip phone.  :P

And as for what I would guess: $17,222. That way, you can see if the 7 is right or not, and I like repeating digits.  :-D

People still use flip phones? :lol:

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

I use what is called a tin can and a string. Sometimes they're much more reliable, anyway!

 I'd say $18,657.

He's gotten a lot of help from the audience, and he's set it to $18,687. Is that the right price?

*BUZZ!*

No. Well, even if you got at least ONE number right, that would be an improvement. Tell you what, I’ll give you another chance as long as you get any numbers right.

Which numbers, if any, does he have right?



*DING!*

Four! Four numbers right! I tell you, this man knows how to price a Honda Fit!

Adam, the good news is that you have four numbers right. The bad news is you're missing the tens digit. I'll give you one more shot--cover up the tens digit with either a five, two, four, or one. If you can pick the correct digit on this turn, you're a winner!
