(BTW, Happy Birthday, Rachel!)

Signups are over, and here we go!

(Walking 2007)

GEORGE GRAY: Here it comes! From the famous Bob Barker Studio in Hollywood, it's The Price is Right!

Cool Steve, come on down!
GameShowFan9001, come on down!
JayC, come on down!
And Clara26, come on down!

You are the first four contestants on a special Big Money episode of The Price is Right!




(TPIR Theme 2007)

And now, here's your host, Teddy!

(enters through Door #2, takes microphone from Rachel)

It's Big Money time on The Price is Right! That's Rachel back there, and over here, it's my good friend, George Gray!

GEORGE: Good morning, Teddy, how you doing? I'm so ready for this Big Money Special. Hi, everybody tuning in! Hi, Mama Mai!

I'm so glad you could be here, because this is a Big Money Special, and we're doing things differently than normal. We're going to play all six games for cash, and one of them will be played for a million dollars. (cheers) In fact, we have over $2 million up for grabs today, so we're sure to break all kinds of records right here, and right now. But first, let's get the show started with the first prize up for bids today.



GEORGE: And let's get it started with a trip to Las Vegas! (image of Vegas appears in front of his podium) (big-band cue) (cheers and applause) You and a guest will fly round-trip coach from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Nevada, for a six-night stay at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. Enjoy picturesque views of the city, and take in the sights and sounds of Vegas. Convenient to all major shops and attractions. Daily breakfast is included.

And one of you will be going today. Of course, it will go to the one of you four who is nearest to the actual retail price without going over.

BIDDING ORDER: Cool Steve, GameShowFan9001, JayC, Clara26



Cool Steve, you're up first.

(and the 24-hour time limit is in effect for the entire show!)

So we have $3,400 from Cool Steve...

DING!

...$3,777 from GameShowFan9001...

DING!

...$4,200 from JayC...

DING!

...and $4,201 from Clara26.

DING!



And the actual retail price is: $4,256. Clara26, you win!

DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING!

(Walking 2007)

(cheers and applause)

Congratulations, you're the first one up on stage in this Big Money Special. Now stand over on that mark we have on the floor because we have a very special game for you. George, what is it?

(Pay the Rent intro cue)



GEORGE: Clara26, you now have a chance to win up to $100,000...



...because you are going to be playing Pay the Rent!


That's right, Clara26, you will be playing one of our most exciting games on The Price is Right. I want to introduce you to James O'Halloran, and here he is.

JAMES: Thank you, Teddy! Good morning, everybody!

He and Rachel are going to help you put these grocery products in your house out there. First, you're going to put one of those products in the mailbox, and then you're going to put two more on the first floor, where the couch and slow-cooker are, because we were too lazy to find a stove. (laughter) Anyway, the two products on the first floor have to total more than what you put in the mailbox. Then you're going to put two more on the second floor, with the bed and TV, and those two have to be more than those on the first floor. And whatever is left will go in the attic, where the safe is; that one product has to be more than the ones on the second floor. If you can arrange them in the right order, you get the $100,000. Now you think about it while George tells us about the products.

(Bhen SP/GP Cue)








GEORGE: Here we go. First up, we have a 12-oz. bag of Hershey's Kisses. Next, we have a 21-count box of El Monterey Beef & Cheese Taquitos, and a 64-oz. bottle of Snapple Peach Tea. Get rid of the itch with this Cortizone 10-inch relief stick, with healing aloe. Use as directed. Then we have a 14.75-oz. can of Del Monte Fire Roasted Corn, and finally, make your skin feel smoother to the touch with Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser.

To speed the game up, give me your guesses for all four levels, remembering that each of them must be more expensive than the one before it.

Well, I know for a fact that this is going to be the easiest $1,000 you'll ever make. The price of the Snapple is...



DING!

...$2.69, and there's your $1,000 right off the bat.



DING-DING-DING-DING!

Now let me remind you that if you're wrong at any point, you will lose everything, so you will have the option to quit after each level and take whatever you've won. Are you going to quit or keep going?

And so the candy and corn have to be more than $2.69 for you to get $5,000. The candy is...

DING!

...$3.99, so congratulations, you got $5,000. How much is the corn?



DING!

$1.99, and that makes the total...



DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING!

$5.98. Now, the next level up is $10,000, and this means that the taquitos and cleanser together need to be more than $5.98 for you to get it. You can also choose to take the $5,000 and quit, but it's all up to you, so what would you like to do?

And so we will keep going. As long as the taquitos and cleanser are more than $5.98, you get $10,000. How much are those taquitos?

DING!

$6.49, and 10 grand coming your way. That cleanser is...



DING!

...$7.99, and the total is...



DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING-DING!

...$14.48. Now comes the hard part: With just the relief stick left to go, you must decide whether you want to keep your $10,000, or risk it for a shot at $100,000. I will tell you once again, that if you go for it and you're wrong, you will lose it all. So what are you going to do?

Well congratulations, you got your $10,000.

(Pay the Rent Win Cue)

Now let's see if you would have gotten the $100,000 if you had gone on. What's the price of that relief stick?



It was $5.44, so you stopped at just the right time. And you might win even more cash at the Wheel later on; see you there. Now George, who's our next player?

GEORGE: pathfinder20, come on down! You're the next contestant on The Price is Right!

I welcome you to the show, pathfinder20. Now let's direct our attention to Door #3 and see the next prize.



GEORGE: It's a new car! (James models it) (The Bean Stalker) (cheers and applause) It's the 2019 Chevy Sonic LT sedan, featuring a 1.4-liter engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, front-wheel drive, Convenience Package and Driver Confidence Package.

While it's a highly unusual One-Bid prize, one of you will be driving it home today.



BIDDING ORDER: pathfinder20, Cool Steve, GameShowFan9001, JayC

pathfinder20, go ahead and give me your bid.

(and to anyone following this thread, if you can figure out a winning combination to our previous game, feel free to PM it to me!)

Is it cheating if I used a script to figure out the PtR answer?  :-D
