rockyboy's Price Is Right Episode 1: Just Getting Started
« on: August 04, 2020, 07:50:59 PM »
(This was supposed to be posted Sunday, but I was WAY too busy w/ other stuff.)

Hello, everyone! I am stoked to host my first-ever episode of The Price is Right! This is based off the current 1-hour version, so I don't really need to explain any further. Anyway, if you want a spot on this show, answer this question:

The powers that be have decided to resume production for The Price is Right today! What should the show do to make sure they adhere to the California guidlines amid this pandemic?

(The funnier the response is, the better chance you have getting called earlier! Signups close Monday at 12 AM.)

Everyone must be in a costume similar to the Bubble Boy from Seinfeld! (Shirts with "Moops" on them is optional.)
2,998 days until I am re-eligible to be a contestant on The Price Is Right!

No longer a Push Over!

Only allow nine audience members into the studio and have them sit at all the corners of the audience with one in the middle. Whoever gets called down plays from the turntable and the three doors left to right. The host is always situated stage center with the prizes, pricing games and showcases played on the plasma screens. For the Showcase Showdown, players shout "Stop the wheel!"

Steal the monitor from 1 vs 100 and play via webcam. They've already done it for LMAD minisodes, and although it would suck, it'd be better than a lawsuit.

Actually, screw that, how about you turn into a reality TV show and don't even have the studio. Save money by just filming Clock Game with random strangers on the street, and not worry about all the hastle of getting 300 people infected
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: $probably like $200k + Canadian dollars

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

Everyone is required to wear an inflatable dinosaur costume, that way they're distancing and its like wearing a big hazmat suit.

I'm in! I'd give out cheap Mexican food for free while people are waiting to get in to the studio, but then shut down all the toilets. Once people are in the studio, they'll be voluntarily staying as far away from each other as possible!

300 people in the audience, but tape the show in the 20,000 seat Staples Center.
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'm in!

Bring in nine local contestants to play, take a cue from MLB and fill the rest of the audience with cardboard cutouts.

Bring out the G-T * separators, have the contestants wear their masks where their names will be put, and all contestants will wear a giant Plinko chip costume (as what Rachel did) and for their come on down, they must drop or roll down the stage up to the Bidders' Row. ;)
The price will always be right.

Definitely in on this one! Instead of price tags supply them with face masks with their name on them!  :-D

Make sure they are 6 feet apart. I can't think of anything else.

I'd love to join.

I think the most surefire way to get people to follow the rules is to use some good old fashioned positive reinforcement. Promise anyone who doesn't break the guidelines during the show $500 and watch everyone scatter from each other.

Anyone who says money doesn't get results obviously hasn't worked with a game show budget  :-)
