SCSD1
Everett: .80
Jana: .75+.25=.95 (it really should be 1.00)
Vicky: .70+.15=.85

Jana is going to the Showcase! Thanks to Bob's error, she will never get a Bonus Spin to try for a full $11,000 prize, but I guess it doesn't matter anyway.

SP3: Black & Decker Spacemaker--guesses $35, mountain climber stays on 24 (ARP: $35)

How appropriate that a trip to Switzerland is offered in Cliff Hangers! Jane could've bid either $34 or $36 on the spacemaker and still won.

What will become of Elizabeth as we approach the final round of bidding?
