Wow, it's almost like no one's paid the electric bill in here for 4 years  :-)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

123123123's TPiR is back for a whole new season and what better way to start it off than with a bit of a twist.

YOU, the contestants, are going to have a big say in how this half hour show goes.

Quite frankly, you're gonna have more power than any right-minded game show should be giving their contestants.  Lucky for you, this isn't a right-minded show.  :-D

We'll get into all that later, but first things first. In case you forgot, here are the rules for everyone:

*Sign-ups will last for 48 hours (so it will start 7/16 around 5pm)
*Contestants will get a PM from me when they are called down or up on stage
*You will have 24 hours to submit your response
*The audience is allowed, even expected to help (except during IUFBs)
*Above all else, have fun and relax

*Finally, to win a spot in the First Four, we've got a quick 30 second interview just like our parent source. Just tell me why I should pick you... in 12 words or less (not including the obligatory "I'm in"). Get creative, be mysterious, post all the gifs, crack some jokes, be cunning, use bullet points, find my number and text me, do what you've gotta do. Just make sure it's only 12 words, because I'm counting.

So everyone, sign on up and let's have some fun!

Removed unnecessary markup. Please use the default fonts, too many styles is hard to read.

Reason being, I'm desperately in need of a new hot dog cart.

I'll try to jump in!

Let's turn the tables; why should I trust you to host again?
"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

-Drew Carey, interview with Athletic, September 16, 2020

HYO total winnings: $probably like $200k + Canadian dollars

Last chance for any stragglers to sign up.

The show will start around 6 when I get back from work.

Thank you all who signed up, the doors are closing and it's time to start the show. Good luck  :-)


*****************************************************************************


{theme starts as the camera looks over the crowd}


Announcer: TPIRfan#9821, come on down!!!


tpir04, come on down!!!


DarkShockBro, come on down!!!


and SuperSweeper, come on down!!!


You are the first four contestants on The Price is Right!!!!!



{loud applause}


And now, the host with more numbers than an abacus, 123123123!!!!


{door 2 opens and Numbers walks out}

{Manuela hands mic}

{loud applause}



1233: Hello all, I'm glad that you could all make it out here for the season premiere. I promise you won't be dissappointed.

You've all choose a great day to be here. As you probably heard waiting in line, today is going to be a a little different than your average show. That is because I have with me...


{searches left and right pockets to no avail}


{reaches into jacket pocket and emerges with two envelopes)





...two Crudely DrawnTM envelopes that we definitely didn't snag from Let's Make a Deal next door.  :-)

Today's show is a Pick Your Own Adventure style show!

I can tell you that each envelope contains an item associated with what game you might end up playing. Evenmore, each envelope comes with a small clue below to help you make a somewhat educated choice

Envelope 1: A Big Ol' Pile of Nothingness
Envelope 2: So You're Saying There's a Chance?


The clues could be related to the games or the prizes. They can also be a huge factor or a small detail. The choices are yours and yours alone.

Now, for the four of you in Contestants' Row right now, when you give me your bid on the IUFB that's coming up (trust me, it's coming), you will also give me an envelope choice (#1 or #2)

Don't worry about choosing the same envelope because
1.) there obviously aren't enough to go around (logic, duh  :lol:) and
2.) the contestant that wins the bid will follow the path they chose for themselves.

Everyone on board with the plan?


{somewhat assuring nods from the players}


I'll take what I can get.  :-)

Now with all of that out of the way, let's really get this show started with the first item up for bids.

{turntable turns}

Announcer: It's a glass door refrigerator {modeled by Amber}



Have you ever wanted that shady conveinence store feel in your kitchen? This display refrigerator has a 21" square base, stands 63 inches tall and gives you (and all your guests) a clear view of that nasty Chinese takeout from 3 weeks ago


{applause}

1233: As always, whoever is closest without going over get to come on up to play a pricing game. Now, SuperSweeper, please give me a bid and an envelope.

Bidding Order:
SuperSweeper ------------>
DarkShockBro ------------>
tpir04 --------------------->
TPIRfan#9821 ------------>


*the crowd can help with the envelope choices, but please not with the IUFB

Well shoot...

I was actually going to sign up for this one earlier but got distracted before I could post.  Guess I値l yell nonsense from the peanut gallery!

*EIGHT SEVENTY*
We have found ourselves in the middle of a situation that is truly unprecedented.  Our favorite game show has taken unprecedented steps to get back on the air with new episodes in its 49th season.  Sure, it will look and feel a bit weird at first, but at the end of the day, it痴 still the same show we all know and love.  And despite some of the rhetoric you may hear, whether it be on the news or here on this very board, this is most certainly not a 渡ew normal.  The 創ormal we loathe so deeply will return.  Might be next year.  Might be the year after.  Until then, appreciate this era of the show for what it is and look forward to the day when we have ~300 screaming fans packed inside the Bob Barker Studio at CBS in Hollywood once again hopefully very soon.

Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Numbers has asked for no help from the audience during the IUFBs. Sorry!

I'll bid $1777. Call me the non-conformist: envelope 2, please.
