*DING!*
*DING!*




And the Actual Retail Price of that Big Green Egg is...



$1,499, and tpir04 from the Big Green Spot wins it!



Congratulations! Come up on stage, tpir04!

tpir04, behind those doors, I know we have something that you'd LOVE to have. Show him!

*1974 motorbike cue*

Itís a terrific new motorcycle!



Power through the streets with style, in the Harley-Davidson Street Rod! This stylish hot rod offers high-output 64 horsepower engine and 47 ft-lbs of torque! Includes a security system, bluetooth helmet, and California emission. The Harley Street Rod!

And all that you have to do to drive home in that beautiful motorcycle is balance these scales!



This is a lucky Surf dollar. Keep it, itís yours. We have plenty. In fact, there are thousands of surf dollars in that bag over there, representing the price of the motorcycle.



In a moment weíre going to put that bag on the right side of the scale. Your task is to use these smaller bags here and put them on the left side to balance the scale.



Here, Iíll help you out. See this bag that says $494? Youíre gonna want it on the left side of the scale, let me help you out--

*slide whistle*



And through the magic of gravity, the scale lowers.

Weíve narrowed it down to three bags--$3,000; $5,000; and $6,000. You only need to use two of them to balance the scale. Now you tell meówhich two bags belong next to the $494 bag on the scale?

tpir04, just what have you done? We had everything nicely wrapped up for you, and you had to go and mess it up!



Whatever, we don't have a Coinstar to count, so I sure hope you got close enough to 5,000 of those coins in that tray to make it count. If it's an $11,494 motorcycle, you're a winner. Let's put the bag for the Motorcycle on the scale and see if it balances...

*slide whistle*



Oh! It looks like...

It could be...



*BUZZ!*

I'm sorry. Even without including the bag itself, it was too much weight. What was the price?



You should never, never, have even TOUCHED that $5,000 bag. Maybe it was trying to tell you something when you picked it up. I'm sorry things didn't turn out for you, tpir04, and we'll get some stagehands to clean that mess up after the break!

=============================

AnnouncerTron, we have a green spot that needs filling for our green show! Who will it be?

It's going to be Plinkoman! COME ON DOWN! You are the next contestant on The Price is Right!

And Plinkoman joins us in the row, and perfect timing too, because LOOK at what we have next up for bids!

*cue Bhen*

It's a lovely set of designer luggage!



From Samsonite, travel in style with this three-piece luggage set! Each suitcase contains full-zip interior dividers and four multi-directional spinner wheels for effortless mobility, and with a built-in side-mounted TSA lock, you'll be able to protect anything inside the suitcase from anything outside. Just don't set the combination to something easy as 123.

And Plinkoman, at the green podium, gets the first say!

*wakes up from a trance caused by the Balance Game graphic*

Woah...what's happening? Oh, luggage? That reminds me...I need to change the combination on my luggage to something other than 12345. I'll bid $900.
