*DING!*
*DING!*




And the Actual Retail Price is...



And JayC wins it!



Plinkoman, nearly the right numbers, just needed a 1 instead of a 4. JayC, follow me up on stage!



As you can tell by the giant safe, you're going to play Safe Crackers. And we have a terrific prize for you locked in that safe, that's worth over NINE THOUSAND DOLLARS! Open the safe and show him what he can win!

*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 thatís not all we have in the safeówe also have a fun ping pong table!




From Butterfly, this tennis table is regulation size and easy to use! Each half folds independently and has adjustable feet to ensure a level playing surface. You get it all from Butterfly!

*squeezes the safe shut*

And this safe is airtight and impenetrable. Itís too big to be carted off. Itís drill-proof, freeze-proof, bomb-proof, Oceans Eleven-proof, Italian Job-proof, James Bond-proof, Ant Man-proof, and Don Knotts-proof. The only way possible, anybody, is EVER going to get into that safe, is if they can crack our ultra-secure combination.

That ultra-secure combination has three digits. Also turns out there are only those exact three digits on the dial. Oops.

But because I want you to win and defraud our wicked ping-pong-and-motorcycle-hoarding overlords, Iíll give you a hint. We have intel that the combination to the safe is the price of the ping-pong table, and contains a 0, 7, and 9, none of which repeat.

Youíll get one try to guess the combination. If you get it right, youíll escape into the sunset with a motorcycle and a ping-pong table. Good luck!

*Mission Impossible theme plays*

Pink Panther was considered by our music team, but they reasoned that if they were going to shell out for a single cue, might as well REALLY shell out

JayC believes that the ping-pong table costs $970, and we'll see if that's correct. Give that wheel a spin to the right...



Now spin it to the right...



Now spin it to the left again...



Now tug on that handle...

...Again, why do I feel like this is going to be really cheap? My gut's saying the glorified keyboard is just over a grand, so $1,049?

(Yeah, I know it's not a rational $1, but life is irrational :P)
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: $117,234 + Canadian dollars

Real life winnings: $300 + $800 in gift cards

And the Actual Retail Pri--

*CLANGCLANGCLANGCLANGCLANG!*

Hey! Now we're talking!

That sound means that somebody bid EXACTLY right!

And the person who got the price right on the money gets an extra $500 for their specificity!

That $500 bonus belongs to the contestant who bid...



TPIRfan#9821! Congratulations. Your gut was right, and your gut earned you some extra cash. Terrific bidding, and well done!

But oh, TPIRfan#9821, that is just the start. We have some WONDERFUL prizes that are just waiting for you to win. Tell him what he can win!

It's a fun ping pong table and a terrific new motorcycle!



First, from Butterfly, this tennis table is regulation size and easy to use! Each half folds independently and has adjustable feet to ensure a level playing surface. You get it all from Butterfly!

Next, 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 finally, how about... A NEW TRUCK!!!




Itís the 2020 Ford Ranger XL! Features a 2.3L engine and rear wheel drive plus cruise control, power mirrors, carpet flooring, pickup box extender, splash guards, bed cover, sliding rear window, remote key fob, and Ford Co-Pilot 360. The Ford Ranger!

And you can win them all playing Master Key!

I have terrific confidence in you. First, because your perfect bid is bringing winning energy and momentum going into this game! And second, I'm told we have at least one Master Key expert in Contestant's Row that may be willing to give some advice if you ask nicely.



We have three locks over there, one for each prize. You can unlock none of them, some of them, or all of them.



And here we have five keys. Three of them open one of those three locksóone each for the ping pong table, motorcycle, and truck. One key is a dud that doesnít open anything at allóavoid that at all costs. The final key might be of particular interest to you. It's called the master key. We call it that because it opens all three of those locks, and if you pick it, youíll win everything!

You can win up to two keys, and to win them you have to prove you know something about these small prizes we have.

This high-power LED spotlight and output brightness up to 350 luments, holds a charge good for up to 20 hours of light, and includes a stand for hands-free lighting!

And, this industrial-strength soap and sanitizer dispenser holds 1250 mL of gel, is easy to load, and can output over 1,700 dispenses per refill.


You can win keys by correctly pricing items. You see here, in front of the LED spotlight, we have the numbers 1-4-8. To win a key, tell me, is the LED spotlight $14 or $48?

And to win a second key, is the sanitizer dispenser $23 or 36?

...Why couldn't I been that on point on musical instruments on the actual show  :-D


48 and ...23? If I get one key, I'm going to go the anti-LFAT route and pick #2. If I get two keys, #1 and #2.

He says the spotlight is $48, and he is...



Correct! And he takes the second key from the left, even though the audience seems conflicted, TPIRfan#9821 seems to have a strategy in mind. You may have won the truck already. You may have even picked the master key. Or you may have picked the dud. But why take a chance? Let's go on over to the sanitizer dispenser and get you another key!



He says the dispenser is $23, with some hesitation, and he is...



Correct again! And you are 2 for 2 on keys, my friend, and hopefully we can see you going 3 for 3 on prizes as well! Time to try the locks!

We'll start with the first key that you won. TPIRfan#9821, try opening the ping pong lock. If it opens, you win the ping pong table...

*TPIRfan#9821 puts the key in the lock and turns it*



*DINGDINGDING!*

Yes! TPIRfan#9821, my friend, you've just won yourself a ping pong table!

Now, that means this key has to be one two things. Either you picked the key that opens the ping pong table, and only the ping pong table...or you've picked the master key that opens everything. Let's try it in that truck to see if it's the master key!

*TPIRfan#9821 puts the key in the lock and turns it*



*BUZZ!*

Not the master key, at the very least you have a ping pong table.

Now let's try key #2! You've already won the ping pong table, so let's try it in the motorcycle...

*TPIRfan#9821 puts the key in the lock and turns it*



*DINGDINGDINGDINGDING!*

Look at that! You've won yourself a motorcycle as well!

But the question on everybody's mind... did you pick that master key? Go on, try it in the truck, and let's see if you were able to make the clean sweep!

*TPIRfan#9821 puts the key in the lock and turns it*



*DINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDINGDING!*

Look at that! Look at that! TPIRfan#9821, you've won it all! The ping pong table, the motorcycle, and now the truck! I'm so happy for you! A Master Key masterpiece! We're on a hot streak, folks, and we're going to give away more, more more!

Stay tuned for the Showcase Showdown, coming up next!
