It's very frustrating when contestants don't pick the "95" price in Coming or Going.  That's got nothing to do with being a loyal viewer, either:  every price everywhere for almost anything in real life ends in 95!  Or at least any advertised price.  Why don't people pick up on this?  Or actually, they do.  In Money Game at least, which of course, doesn't really help them win that, but still, contestants picking 95 in Money Game is a lot more understandable than contestants not picking 95 in Coming or Going.

Speaking of Coming or Going, anyone notice the lights weren't working today?  It look fine in the far shots, but it looked like it had a bad case of blackheads close up .

When was the last time the SP and GP games were played fifth and sixth, regardless of which was which?

When was the last time a contestant missed the thousands digit in Temptation, anyway?  As much as I want to say Bob's guess of 1979 is exaggeration, I honestly can't recall a single time it's happened before.

Today's Safe Crackers reveal was the coolest thing they've done since they've started opening the doors before Bob got to them.  Just starting on the "Safe," then panning out to the full name and then to Bob and the contestant... I hope this becomes permanent!

I don't like Broyhill.  They don't seem to be as consistently cheap as Ashley, or as consistently expensive as Aico, making them harder to price.

Was that real perfume sprayed on the contestants at the end of the first showcase?

Safe Crackers: Very easy. No way those helmets could be $240.

Temptation: This however, was VERY hard. I had a bad feeling that 0 as the second digit would trip up somebody, and it did. All of the numbers in the car were low. I would have only got one digit right myself (my guess was $20,590). Unless it is suddenly played one last time this season (possibly on the other postponed episode of the season), this game just got kicked into the Winless for the Season Club with Triple Play. And Bob, you know nothing about history.

Coming Or Going: I knew it was $3,995, but not she.

Most Expensive: Very easy.

Switcheroo: Putting 9 in the truck was a horrible move.

Bullseye: A near-$10,000 prize was won in this game!

Showcases: Brady didn't have much to work with, as the first showcase was hard to win, given that the car in there was not a sportscar. As soon as the other person made her bid, I knew Brady had lost, so I didn't bother watching the final segment.

Overall: They tried making today's show good, with Temptation, Switcheroo, and a big Showcase, but today's show was pretty boring. Most contestants played very poorly.

safecrackers: i personally thought it was $240. how could helmets be $210 EACH?
iufb 2: wouldn't charmaine's 3rd bid qualify as a stupid bid after alex bid $425?
temptation: the mustang curse strikes again. a v6 engine is nothing super-special, so i knew she was totally wrong with that 6! along with roger being evil on the last digit, the case was clear for her to stop. i knew the 0 was second, so the 5 would probably be the last, and the 3 would therefore be third. i would have been tripped up by the fourth, as i guessed 9 (how many times has that 9 tripped up cover up players?).
cog: absolutely NO reason to lose this.
most expensive: ditto. the dinette was screaming to be picked.
iufb 5: i would have also overestimated the fireplace. even electric fireplaces are usually expensive.
switcheroo: i thought the 2 or the 3 was right until she put the 9 in. then i was rudely shocked when my 1st idea was right!
bullseye: i have seen the sunflower seeds and knew 10 would slam dunk, however i guessed the dressing was $3.99 given the frequent evil prices on it.
showcases: i knew brady had lowballed, but not THAT much. the gts must be even more expensive than a regular sebring.

oh, and did anybody notice when the convertible was revealed, that the "pillars" were decorated with the season 34 logo? that means they might have a closeout soon.

You seem to recap things that happened in the show without providing any comments on them. Joe's the recapper; we don't need recapping from anyone else.

I would like to go on record as saying I loved the perfume showcase. By far one of the best this season.

Temptation was rather anti-climactic today.

Nice Bullseye win today with only four cents remaining!

Brady was almost the perfect example of how a contestant can still take advantage of being the ninth of nine to be called down.  He made a very good bid on the washer and dryer, won Bullseye handily, and just got tripped up on what has to be at least a $31,000 Sebring.  I've been waiting to see a ninth contestant to win their game and the showcase, and Brady's been the closest in a long time.

It would be easy to say that Temptation was not set up for a win, but it's almost cruel to play this game for a Mustang coupe, because everybody always assumes that the Mustang is at least $25,000.  Unfortunately, unless it's the convertible, it never is.  I think a Mustang coupe has been won recently, but it sure doesn't seem like it.  In any event, Kristin should have taken the prizes, because even had the zero been there instead of the six, the price still didn't look right.  I would wager that Bob asked multiple times if she was sure she wanted to go for the car because he knew that she didn't have it right.

I would also echo the statement that today's perfume showcase theme is one of the best of this season, if not all time.  And not a bad array of prizes either!

Safe Crackers: Not a hard choice at all... $240 just didn't sound like it was enough...

Temptation: This was a lost cause the second she took that 6... Not that the 5 or 0 were good guesses, either.. She should've taken the gifts and ran. :-?

Coming Or Going: Knowing that the "Teardrop" camper is less expensive than the "Five Wide", this was a very easy choice.. Besides, $5,993 didn't quite look right. Oy...

Most Expensive: While I wasn't sure if this was one of the less expensive treadmills, the dining room just seemed like the smarter choice...

Switcheroo: I knew some of these prices, but not all of them.. I hadn't seen that particular breakfast maker before, but was fairly sure on the other three SP.. Not only did Brenda commit the cardinal sin of filling in the truck before the other prizes on her first turn, but I think she totally confused herself on her second turn.. :-?

Bullseye: One of these days a contestant will realize those sunflower seeds are $1.09.. Still, he nailed it with the salad dressing.. And two out of six is, well... Still not good.

Showcases: Brady obviously was way off on his showcase.. Mind you, my guess of $33,500 would've been way off, too, but $24,500 wasn't even going to cover that car... Showcases with Seabrings seem to throw people off as badly as Mustangs. :-?

Charmaine's bid, while not good, was good enough (heck, she could've bid $1,000 and won, after all)... I was thinking $17,000 on hers...

Safe Crackers today seemed easy to me. And I noticed Bob didn't have her spin the wheel around 3 times; of course, I don't see Safe that often, but I just noticed it.

Temptation: That was hard, for most contestants, even. Gscentral.net has a pic of just one number right. Well, 2 if you count the first number, but there was only 4 numbers.

I did like how Bob said you can change all 5 numbers. "Bob, I want to change the first number."  :-P

I would have taken those prizes, myself, just because of that last prize.  :-)

I would have thought most contestants would have chosen the $3,995, just because it ends it a 5. I guess not this one. Which is good, in a way.

Most Expensive seemed easy today. That's all I have to say about that game.  :-)

Switcheroo: Didn't we just see this last Monday? Oh, wait a minute....... Anyway, she didn't change 2 prizes on her second prize. Not that it mattered much.

$11 for that disco thing? I need to watch the show more often; I thought it was the 9!

I was glad to see the 9th contestant get up, and win a pricing game. Of course, I'm usually happy to see contestants win a pricing game.  :-)

That car showcase........I can't say much; I only bid $50 more than him.  :-)

Well, I reviewed it today. See if I see it tomorrow. Some famous guy is coming to our city tomorrow. What was his name? Bash, Besh, Bish, Bosh. Well, I'll think of it.  :-)

PG #1 - To me, $240 seemed too cheap to be a Safecrackers prize.  I went with $420.  :-(

PG #2 - If we were playing for a Mustang convertible, $26,520 would be an acceptable price.  This audience should know better.  They should not have told her to take the 6 as the second number.  If this game was gonna be lost, it should've been lost on the fourth number.  That was the toughest number up there, and amazingly, she had that one right.  I had $20,395.

PG #3 - Should not have been lost.  Any price that ends in 95 in this game is gonna be right.

PG #4 - Also should not have been lost.

PG #6 - If that container of Tidy Cats was $7.47, it had no business being in this game.

Showcases - "No, Brady!  That won't even cover the price of the convertible!"

My bids - Convertible:  $34,800.  Random room/spa:  $13,900.
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".
