^ Speaking about that last one...

*ding*




Actual retail price...$1,640! Plinkoman, play your pricing game! *dingdingdingding*

*2007 Come on Down Theme*



So, this is our last pricing game, and I think we have pretty good prize waiting for him. George?

George: It's an Entertainment Package! (Sarah models the entire thing.)



This package starts with a Townser 4-piece Entertainment Center with a Furniture Protection Plan included. Then it's an LG 55" OLED GX Smart 4K UHD TV with HDR. 5 Ultra-HD cables from Rocketfish, an LG 7.1.2 channel 710W Soundbar System with Wireless Subwoofer and Dolby Amose with Google Assistant, a 4-month Apple music subscription, and a Geek Squad protection plan ar included. We're also offering 1-year subscriptions to DirectTV with over 330 channels, Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+!




Well, that was quite a description. You'll be playing Range Game. Since I don't know how to make the electronic thing work, I'll give you two arrows. Place them around the price you think the Entertainment package is. Also, they must be $150 apart. No more, no less.

If the price is between those numbers, you win. One, two, three!





*buzzer* *losing horns*


OUCH. That's all I have to say. *2007 Main Theme*

You still have the sofa and you could possibly redeem yourself big time at the Wheel, and we'll get to that after a couple messages.

My numbers are 33 and 58. I'll spin again if and only if one of the following three conditions is true:

1. I'm behind the leader(s) after my first spin.
2. After my first spin, I tied exactly one person and the score we tied at is 50 cents or less.
3. After my first spin, I tied exactly two people and the score we tied at is 65 cents or less.

My numbers are 12 and 11. I will stop 65 or higher.

I'm still trying to recover from that painful loss, btw!

*2007 Main Theme* (Fade in)



JayC and 9821 made it to the showcases. 9821 has the honors since he somehow won $26,000 on the wheel. It's funny how this game can be. Pay attention to the first showcase, because it can go to either one of you. George?

George: Is COVID keeping you down? Is it letting you be discouraged from having an active lifestyle? Don't worry, since this showcase is all about being active. To start, we'll give you this Rowing Machine! (Faith's on it.)



The Hydrow Rowing Machine is nothing like an average rowing machine. It comes standard with patented technology, making each stroke feel like you're out on the water for a fully realistic experience.

But let's be honest, you're not that satisfied when exercising in virtual reality. What you need is to breathe some fresh air and feel the wind coming against you skin. I'm sure you and a friend could do that with these pair of electric bikes! (Sarah models them.)



These City Commuter Mid Drive Bikes from Pedego come with a 48V 15 Ah Battery and 28" classic wheels.

And finally, maybe you and a friend want to go out more and discover biking trails that are more exhilarating, but farther away. Maybe you could pack these bikes in your brand new car! (Suwemi Models it.)



The 2020 Honda Civic LX. Comes with standard equipment, 1.5 L engine, continuously variable transmission, front wheel drive, and seatback protectors.


So, it's a rowing machine, a pair of electric bikes, and a brand new car. You'll definitely be more active with this showcase if The Price is Right!


9821, you can either bid on that or pass it to JayC.

I'll bid. The Honda Civic should be $21.5ish, I'm feeling like $3k each on the bikes, and the rower should be the same or less than a bike?

I'll go the bid that burned me once before: $29,420.

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."

-Drew Carey, interview with Athletic, September 16, 2020

HYO total winnings: $probably like $200k + Canadian dollars

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

(I look at George)

Um, itís a Honda Fit, NOT a Honda Civic! Read the script carefully!

George: Sorry Rockyboy.

So actually, itís a rowing machine, a pair of electric bikes, and a Honda Fit. NOT a Honda Civic like George said. Do you wanna change your bid?

I swear, losing the showcase due to a wrong item would've been disastrous. JayC, this showcase is for you! George?


George: Sometimes, life simply says to Just Relax, and you could do that on your new bed! (Faith's on the bed)



The Sleep Number 360pSE Smart Queen Bed is the bed of the future with temperature balancing benefits combined with pressure-relieving support made just for you and a special someone.

Let's say you want a bigger level of relaxation. Well, here's a Jet Spa! (Suwemi's on the tub in her bathing suit.)



The Coronado DLX Spa. Comes with 65 jets, maximum energe efficiency and long-term heat retention, open seating for seven, and an ozone water care system for clear water and reduced chlorine.



But wait, you want relaxation on the go! So here's a new Travel Trailer! (Sarah models it.)



The 2021 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 183RBW. This trailer in 21 feet long, has a dry weight of 3,250 pounds, sleeps 3, and has a slide out.

So, it's a new bed, a jet spa, and a new travel trailer. You'll feel totally relaxed with this showcase if The Price is Right!


JayC, what's your bid on this showcase?
