Pretty solid episode.  Included was a nice $1,000 winner in the first SCSD from the Double Prices winner, and a rather rare/unique camera shot for said pricing game.  I’m not going to consider Half Off as a case of bad luck, just a typical result that might still have been the case even with 2 cases to work with.  More of Less was all but a complete downer.  Other than that, everything else was positive!

Of course, not completely, when you have the first two spinners going over in the second SCSD and the default winner going over on his showcase.  Still not feeling bad for him since he is leaving with a car following another come from behind win in Gridlock!  Pretty surprising to see the game played so soon after the previous playing

The first Showcase Showdown nearly featured a player winning with a 45. I’m sure this question has been answered before, but I wonder what the lowest “legitimate” SCSD-winning score is (“legitimate” meaning not as a result of the first two contestants going over and the third winning by default).

Great question.  I think I saw 30 cents or Bob mentioned it, but Bob saying it could've been him sorta making a joke, and seeing someone saying 30 cents without a link doesn't do anything to validate it.

I did mention elsewhere that I recently watched an episode where someone won with 55 (definitely less than 60).  Now that or even 45 is not too difficult if the first contestant goes over, the second gets a mundane score off of two spins, and the third somehow can beat it.

The episode where the 55 was enough was the first contestant actually settled with the score without taking her second spin.  That was a bad decision but the right result.  To add to the "upset win" the 3rd spinner didn't even go over (she didn't even get to 55 cents after both of her spins)!



As for today's show, close call with the 45 for the win, but the second spinner just missed tying it with 45, so at best, a spin off would've taken place.  In addition to that, the third spinner nearly hit 45 on her first spin.  It would've been a tough call for Kathryn to spin again, but I think she would've taken the spin off despite the call


ETA: For better reference toward one of the lowest scores to win a SCSD in regulation, I believe it was 6782D.  FYI in case someone wanted to research it

Contestants' Row in El Cheapo mode TWICE today. Ugh. If only there was some strategy guide out there that told people that the One Bid is never less than $500. Too bad that doesn't exist.  ;)

How about a quarter from earlier this year? Technically not an "illegitimate" score, since the second spinner had 15 cents total.

I don't know about the Bob era, but in modern history, a 30-cent winner spinning first happened on 2/10/2015.

"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."

On a similar note, I wonder how many people who have spun a 5 on the first spin have gone over with their second spin? Is there a chart somewhere I could find this type of obscure info?
