A blackout, sure. The computer system reset the budget back to zero. And coincidentally it was 12:00 when rocky posted that (at least in the Mountain Time zone).

And now he's giving us the longest commercial break in the world so that all the advertisements will produce enough money to get the budget back.  :P

^ No need to fear! https://youtu.be/tqsteJIc6Ds

Music Break aside, let's get back to the show...





JayC, you have a bed, a jet spa, and a travel trailer for you're showcase. You bidded $28,500. Actual Retail Price...$29,963, giving you a difference of $1,493. *ding*




Now, 9821, you have a rowing machine, a pair of electric bikes, and a Honda FIt for your showcase. You bidded $26,666. Actual retail price...


































































...well, I can't believe it. $26,813 for a difference of $147! *ding* *Whoopers and Clangers* *2007 Main Theme*



9821, you win BOTH showcases!!!!

With all that cash and those prizes, 9821 has won...

$89,664


...$89,664 overall! He may not have won the whole lot in Pay The Rent, but I don't think it matters now.

Host's comments:

For a first show, this was quite the crazy one. And I don't think any of these setups were easy to win.

PtR: Obviously set up for a loss. 9821 got it almost right, but a little switcheroo between the two items would've done it for him.
Flip-Flop: JhayPrice chose the least expensive option, which worked out for him.
Dice Game: 123^3 made a bold move in one of the digits, but it wouldn't have mattered anyway.
Do The Math: As long as one remembers that Jimmy Choo shoes are pretty pricey, it ain't that hard.
Any Number: This one's also set up for a loss. Neither 0, 5, or 9 appear in the car's price and that last pick was just a luck of the draw that didn't work out.
Range Game: I think we all felt the pain here...
Showcase Showdowns: Did NOT expect to give away $26K in the first one to 9821.
Showcases: And I really wasn't expecting a DSW here either. I only allowed 9821 to rebid because he thought it was a Honda Civic when it really should be a Honda Fit (thanks to George Gray messing up the script a bit). And yeah, you can say my budget's shot right form the start. :P

So yeah, great first show!

Well that was certainly worth the wait! Fantastic bid 9821! I thought about bidding $29,500 but decided to knock off a thousand just to be safe, but even with that I still wouldn't have won. Clearly 9821's 25k win and DSW blew the budget and forced the lights to be turned off for a few days.

...Well, that's exciting! Well played JayC; I thought I was being a tad aggressive on the bikes, but fortunately the devil's ending blessed me this time :P

Also, great job hosting Rocks! Sorry that I broke the budget without winning the game meant to break the budget :)
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
