Is it cheating if I used a script to figure out the PtR answer?  :-D
I don't care how you figure it out, as long as you review the prices and then send the solution in a PM.

Meanwhile, let's start the bidding on that car!

MRRRRRRRRP!

As much as I hate to do this, I'll charge pathfinder20 his first strike and a default bid of $99999.

Cool Steve, you may give me your bid now.

...$14,250 from Cool Steve...

DING!

...$18,111 from GameShowFan9001...

DING!

...and $18,112 from JayC.

DING!



Actual retail price: $23,105. JayC, you win!

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

(Walking 2007)

(cheers and applause)

Congratulations, JayC, on winning your car! But this is only the beginning, and since it's a Big Money Special, we have an announcement for you. George, lay it on us!

(It's in the Bag intro cue)

GEORGE: JayC, you now have a chance to win up to $400,000 in cash!



And you can win it playing one of our most fun games, Rat Race. If this were a normal show, you'd have to win the car that you got earlier, but today, we have three cash prizes that you may get depending on how your rats finish. If your rat comes in first, you get $250,000. If it comes in second, you get $100,000, and third place gets you $50,000. First and second, you get $350,000; first and third, $300,000; and second and third, $150,000. But if you earn all three rats, and they finish first, second and third, you win $400,000! (cheers) But first, I'm going to give you a chance to earn those three rats with three different prizes, and what's the first one, George?



(Cue 40)

GEORGE: First up is a 64-ounce bottle of V8 Splash Strawberry Lemonade.



Here's how you earn a rat: You have to be within a certain amount of the actual price. Right now, I want the price within $1, and it doesn't matter if you're over or under. What do you think it is?

You say it's $2.75, and Rachel, how much is it?



DING!

$2.49, so you earn one pick from the five rats. You have a choice of A, B, C, D or E, and while you think that over, let's have another prize, George.



(1994 SP Cue)

GEORGE: Stay up to date on the latest news, sports and music plus the important forecasts, warnings and advisories with this hand-cranked AM/FM/weather alert radio.



Now I want the price of that within $10, and again, you can be either over or under. What do you say to that?

It looks like you're going to get some money...
