PatrickRox80's The Price is Right: Seasons (1973 - END)
« on: September 19, 2019, 12:59:53 PM »
It's back!  :biggrin:

1973 will be another half hour show. Thank you to all who participated last time, I'm looking forward to doing this again!

I have modified my ground rules due to a couple of incidents on last show. Here they are:

  • I will PM you if you've been chosen to "Come on down!" I will also send you a PM if you've made it to the Showcase.
  • All deadlines are 24 hours.
  • Miss a deadline during the One Bid, and it's an automatic pass. Miss a second One Bid, and you'll be ejected with another contestant called down to replace you.
  • Miss a deadline during a pricing game and it's an automatic loss.
  • Miss during the Showcases and you'll lose your chance to bid. The next highest winner will take your place.
  • If timing is an issue for you, send me a PM and we'll work things out.
  • All instances of cheating will be treated as a missed deadline. If you are caught cheating a second time, you will be blacklisted from participating in my shows.
  • Audience participation is encouraged.
  • Have fun!

Here is the interview qualifier this time around:

Your first year as a page on The Price is Right is going great. So great, in fact, that you've attracted Mark Goodson and Bill Todman. They want to promote you to a writer! They've thrown a curveball at you to get your feet wet. Match Game '73 has been picking up steam in the ratings so they want to do a little cross-promotion. Your task? Come up with some fill-in-the-blank Match Game questions themed around The Price is Right. Of course, they have to be suitable for a daytime audience.

This episode will start no-later than Sunday, September 22 at 7:00 PM EDT. Sign-ups will end 72 hours after this post unless I don't have at least seven people in the audience pool.

Who's in?

1973, huh?

The CBS exec said, “Unlike some shows, the Price is Right would never rely on gimmicks like a big spinning wheel to draw eyeballs. During sweeps week, we’ll just have contestants bid on a lifetime supply of _____.”

Good thing Richard Dawson is on Match Game, cause he could NEVER make it on a different game show. He and his friends once attended a Price is Right taping, and they gave awful advice. The contestant playing Lucky Seven said, “I shouldn’t have listened to Hogan’s ______.”

“Dumb Dora was soooo dumb...” (How dumb was she?) “...when she was playing Double Digits and the host if she understood the game, she drew a _____.”
Quote from: Mark Goodson
"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game. For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more. We test and hammer and test and hammer...

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work."

Quote from: Bill Todman
"The sign of a good game, is when you don't have to explain it every day. The key is not simplicity, but apparent simplicity. Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

I'll bite.

"Say, did you hear that The Price is Right thinks cars are getting too expensive? Lemme tell ya. From now on, instead of cars, every episode will offer at least one ________."

"Dumb Dora is sooooooo dumb, ("HOW DUMB WAS SHE???"), when Bob Barker asked her to bid on her Showcase, she didn't bid in dollars, she bid in __________!"

"Dumb Dora is soooo dumb, when she was on The Price is Right and played the game Any Number, she gave Bob her ______!"

"That game Bullseye on The Price is Right was so hard, whenever a contestant played it the audience ______ed for them!"

"It must be difficult for Johnny Olsen to announce both Match Game and The Price is Right. At yesterday's Price is Right taping, rather than Come on Down! he accidently told contestants to _______!"

*1972 intro*

George Gray: A fortune in fabulous prizes may go to these people today if they know when The Price is Right!

gamesurf, come on down!

JayC, come on down!

PlinkoMan, come on down!

And tpir04, come on down!

You are the first contestants on The Price is Right!




*1972 Main Theme*

And now, here is the star of The New Price is Right, PatrickRox80!

*stands behind door number two as it opens, then jogs out on stage, accepts mic from Anitra and bows*

Me: Welcome to The Price is Right! That's right, with one episode already under our belt, we can no longer call ourselves new. We have another episode lined up with lots of prizes to give away, and we're going to have a lot of fun doing it. This will start with the first item up for bids. Tell us about it, George!

George: It's some fun baseball equipment!



Get into the national past time with this Heater Deuce 95 pitching machine which can launch baseballs at speeds of up to 95 miles an hour with strike zone accuracy. Plus...



Hit one out of the park with this Louisville Slugger Prime 919 bat, weighting in at 30 ounces and measuring at the official Major League length of 33 inches. Also, improve your defense with this Rawlings baseball glove and twelve officially sized Rawlings baseballs.

And we will present all that equipment to the one of you four who bids nearest to the actual retail price without going over.



The first bid of 1973 belongs to gamesurf. What do you bid?
