1233: No shame in that at all, James Madison was a great president and $5,000 is a great's day work!!


{canned cheers as chair rolls back to start}
{TPIRfan#9821 sneaks in, stands at blue podium}



But now, I guess we have to find out if you made the right decision. We simply can't let a good thing be. How much were those skates?

















{a few canned groans}

Uh oh, please tell me the gloves weren't more than $20.













Whew. Who knows, getting the skates might have tempted you to go for the gloves incorrectly.

But enough about the hypotheticals, you have $5,000 and are in a great spot for the gift exchange coming up!

We will hopefully have more winning after this break!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{after several car commercials, camera pans over full Contestants' Row}

1233: Mr. Announcer, you must be running the hurry-up offense, you got us a full complement of contestants without me even noticing. Let them hear about the item they'll be bidding on.

Announcer: What the..? Ok, either the illuminating illusion this dark void of a studio you've trapped us in is starting to fade back to reality before my eyes...or we need to learn to lock doors around here. Either is feasible at this point.


...


1233: Ahem...


Announcer: Oh, of course, the prize! The prize for you all to bid on is this generator!!! {modeled by Amber}

{door 3 opens}




This 9,200 watt electric start generator can be run on gasoline or propane, can run for 10 hours at half capacity and is fitted with tires that will never go flat, trust me when I say attempts were made. There you go, 123!!!

1233: TPIRfan#9821, what do you say?

1233: Wow, I should have made this a nighttime episode with all the nocturnal bidders we have  :-D

Anyways, that generator generates a monetary value of...





...so come on up, geniusinmath!!

{cheers as we walk up to turntable}

Welcome up to the stage! Now I sure we have something great for you to win. Lay it on us, Mr. Announcer!

Announcer: We might be a few months late with this, but you'll find a use for your...

{door 2 opens}

...personal lockdown bunker!! OK, well the copy technically says outdoor gazebo, but same difference to me. {modeled by Rachel and Manuela}



Stay safe and enjoy the solitary life in style! This large 13' by 13' square outdoor gazebo makes for the perfect getaway from your troubles. Constructed of sturdy, solid wood, this bunker is spacious enough for all your lockdown luxuries, such as a spa (not included), outdoor seating (not included ), various yard games (not included) and much, much more (not included)!!!

Evenmore, we have included this 75" curved smart UHD TV and a sound bar so you can put your brand new generator to use right away! There they are, 123123123!


{cheers and applause}



1233: Summer's coming up soon, and that would be a dandy of a prize for it.

Now to win Squeeze Play, all you have to do is find the imposter among us.

The 1 is definitely safe, and so is the 2. But one of these other numbers has to be ejected out and into space, never to return this convenient little number holder on the side of the game.

So, who are you voting out, geniusinmath?

{pulls out 4}
{numbers squeeze together, as if by magic}




1233: Ok, now let's see if you are a winner.


{studio lights dim}
{large screen behind the row starts to play short video}
















Ummm...

{presses button on side of game as video finishes}




{ding, ding, ding, ding, ding}
{cheers from the crowd and speakers}




Whether you get the reference or not, all you need to know is that I'm in the presence of a winner!!! Go see your gazebo, geniusinmath!

{runs off to door 2}

We have one more pricing game coming up for you after this break!

{freeze frame of geniusinmath inside the bunker as we fade to break}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{back from commercials, zoomed in on Numbers}

1233: Now let's get one more item up for bids for these great group of contestants!

Announcer: I think tresspassers might be a better name for some of them, but I'll bite my tongue  :-)

For your bidding pleasure is this crystal sculpture!! {modeled by Rachel}



This foot tall sculpture is made of beryl and blue crystals, was inspired by bubbling underground volcanoes in Iceland and can also function as a vase for the most pretentious of flowers!!!


{cheers from speakers}

1233: Oh, we're getting artsy now. What'll it be, TPIRfan#9821?

Um... Yeah, I'm doomed here  :P Either I go low and someone one-ups me, or I go crazy high... and someone one-ups me.

$2,900. sure. And if any of you bid $2,901 +/- $100, shame on you.

1233: The vase costs...




...so come on up here, TPIRfan#9821!!!

{cheers from crowd}

Wow, you really guilt-tripped the rest of the row there.

Now that you've finally made it up here, let's make it worth your while with these prizes!

Announcer: First, we have this car ornament and cool backpack!! {modeled by Amber}



First, this Mercedes-Benz car ornament can be mounted to the front of any car with enough duct tape. And then, this branded Mercedes-Benz backpack will have you be the talk of town!

And finally, since Mercedes decided to not sponsor us any further, we decided to get you...

{door 3 opens}

...a BRAND NEW LEXUS!!! {modeled by Rachel}



It's time for you to sit in the lap of luxury!! This is the metallic silver 2021 Lexus UX 250h equipped with all the standard features as well as all wheel drive. We've also included a glazed caramel interior, roof rack cross bars, power rear doors, door edge film, door edge and mud guards and , six-speaker premium sound system!! It's the Lexus UX 250h!!!


{crazy loud cheers}



1233: How ya like them apples, Mercedes?  :-)

Anyways, I'm going to give you 10 Chances to win the cheap Mercedes stuff and that not-so-cheap Lexus.

{removes first cover}



Now using two of those three numbers, write down the price of the ornament. Best of luck!

*You are free to give as many or few guesses at once as you'd like

...holy cow the guilt tripping worked!

Let's see here... for the ornament I'll go $50, then $20, then I'll be disappointed if both of those are wrong, and then go $52, then $25 (then $05 and $02, but if it's $5 I'll eat my hat).
