I guess I'll freeze, since I doubt it's $1,100.
"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

*DING DING!*

Two more freezes! And little under 23 hours until everybody else freezes, too!

*DING!*

My mistake, PatrickRox. This should be correct now.

[Host note: I stupidly made a typo on the deadline and said the deadline would be 6 PM EST/9 PM PST. Those are two separate times, with hours of difference separating them. I should have said 9 PM EST/6 PM PST. While the three most recent bids happened after the time I intended to freeze all bids, it could be argued that they all came before 9PM PST, so the right to do here seems to be to let those bids go through.

We apologize for the discrepancy, and will have our copy editors spayed and neutered.]


Aaaaaand... TIME! No more bids, please!



12 bidders this time, with bids down at the bottom from $595 aaaaalllll the way to the top at $1,230.

And the actual retail price of that chess set... IS!



And wouldn't you know it, the name of our winner sounds familiar!



tpir04 was a mere $10 away at one point, but rockyboy held steady. Announcer Guy, you've said it before, won't you say it again?

rockyboy34, COME ON DOWN! You're the next contestant on the Price is Right!

*rockyboy34 stands up from his seat and runs up on stage, TPIR94-style*

rockyboy, you clearly know what it takes to win your way up here. I think we have a good bidder on our hands here! You're two for two!

Now, you had some unfortunate luck in Step Up, but we believe in second chances. Here's a chance to really rack up a good total of loot. We have some terrific prizes for you, and here's Announcer Voice ready to tell you all about them!

*the band launches into “Contusion” by Stevie Wonder*

Sure do, gamesurf. It's a smart table lamp & a cello!



First, this smart LED table lamp is controlled controlled via smartphone app or digital assistant, and can display over 16 million different colors, is fully dimmable from 3% to 100%, and can even be set via timer for different functions!

Second, from Cecilio, this spruce and maple ebony cello includes ebony fingerboard and pegs for all your lovely deep-sounding needs. Form-fitting hard case and sandalwood bow included!

And finally, it's a trip to London!


*the band plays a brass version of Crazy In Love*



You and a guest will fly round-trip, coach, from Los Angeles to London, England, where you'll enjoy a seven-day, six-night stay at the Hilton London Hyde Park! And we've included a tour of the London Eye, with a private capsule booked with champagne, as you survey the city from the heights of the majestic Eye!

And rockyboy, the game you will be playing is Make Your Move!



We have here nine numbers all in a row. These aren't just any random numbers--you're actually looking at the prices of those three prizes right in front of you. We need your help to separate them out!

Two of those numbers belong in the price of the table lamp. Three of those numbers belong in the price of the cello. And four of those numbers belong in the price of the trip to London. You'll use these three sliders and slide them under you what you believe the prices to be. Each number is used once and only once, the prices are continuous, and they do not overlap.

If you can correctly tell us the three prices of the three prizes, you'll win them all!
