PatrickRox80's The Price is Right: Seasons (1974 - Sign-Ups)
« on: November 29, 2019, 12:31:35 PM »
This will be the last half-hour episode. Enjoy it while it lasts!

For ground rules, please refer to the opening post of my 1973 episode:

http://www.golden-road.net/index.php/topic,30470.0.html

The qualifying interview question is as follows:

The Price is Right has just finished its second successful year on the air! You're in charge of a special to celebrate the occasion. CBS, Mark Goodson and Bill Todman have opened the floor to allow celebrities to endorse the show. Who would you invite? What prizes do you want them to promote? Could any of them give Bob Barker a run for his money? It's up to you!

The reason I chose to start this now is because we're still in the middle of a holiday weekend. I'm going to keep sign-ups open until Monday, December 2 at 7:00 PM EST. I hope to start on the grounds of having seven potential contestants by that time.

With that in mind, who's in?

All right, I'll play!

Dolly Parton models a car (Showcase theme is how to get one up on Jolene!).
World Champion bull rider Don Gay models a showcase featuring a trip to Texas and to Las Vegas to see the National Finals Rodeo in person.
Gene Wilder models a weekend getaway at a dude ranch, which will be played as a prize package in a pricing game.

Notice a country/western theme for the year 1974?  ;-)
3,293 days until I am re-eligible to be a contestant on The Price Is Right!

No longer a Push Over!

I would like to play.

I would invite Tammy Wynette to do a 1974 Plymouth during a showcase.

I'm in.

A sort of Match Game type thing: Brett Somers offering a trip to Maine, CNR a tour of New England, Richard Dawson a trip to the UK and Betty White a brand new puppy (because that was somewhat normal at the time)

Seeing as though there aren't enough contestants, I'll jump in, but I'll skip the question, cuz' I'm out of ideas.  :oldlol:

I'm going to extend sign-ups another 24 hours due to there being five in the contestant pool. The show will start at 7:00 PM EST on December 3.

Alan Alda offering a trip to Korea.
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 just say that I want in to make it seven. I guess maybe Evel Knievel with a Harley-Davidson XR-750?
Reminding you about 1932... when Richard Dawson was born. I will remember $19.32, even after he Checked-Out. Feud will never be the same without you.

HYO total winnings: $69,829

I'll join, however I was born over 20 years after 1974, so I'm not sure who would be available to promote the show at the time.  :-D

Sign-ups are now closed. Let's get this party started...



*1972 intro*

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

geniusinmath, come on down!

tpiradam, come on down!

Plinkoman, come on down!

And JayC, come on down!

You are the first contestants on The Price is Right!




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

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

Me: I welcome you to The Price is Right! This is snapshot number three of the past and we're delighted that you can join us as we get closer to the present. How my hair will look when we're finished, that's a different story.

*laughter*

George, the beauties are wheeling our first item up for bids on stage. What can you tell us about it?

George: It's a lamppost!



From Gama Sonic, the Imperial II triple-head solar-powered post light has 63 LEDs which provide efficient yet environmentally-friendly lighting. Its cast aluminum post measures 78 inches in height so you can brighten your driveway, gardens or backyard boosted by its patented reflectors.

That lamppost will go to the one of you four who bids nearest to the actual retail price without going over.



The bidding will start with geniusinmath.
