James, come on down! James watches the show every day ever since it started. He has 36 children and 14 great-grandchildren and he lives out in Palmdale somewhere. Alrighty then, let's get on to our Item.

James will win an assortment of kitchen appliances from Western Auto- a range, a dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer and a washer/dryer all worth $2,255. He will be play CLIFF HANGERS!

Oh Lord this game! The centerpiece of Cliff Hangers is a game board with a stylized mountain slope (angled at about 45) that has a scale which runs from 0 at its base to 25 at the peak, which ends at a cliff. At the start of the game, there is a mountain climber named Hans on the 0 marks at the base of the mountain. The contestant is shown a two-digit prize and asked to bid on it. If he/she bid the actual price, Hans stays where he is. Otherwise, he moves up the mountain, advancing along the scale the number of dollars away the contestant's bid is from the actual price. To give an element of suspense to the game, the actual price is not revealed until after the climber has moved so that the contestant and audience will not know how far he will travel. If Hans remains on the mountain, the contestant wins that small prize. The process is repeated for two more two-digit prizes, generally of increasing value. Hans continues from the point at which he stopped for the previous prize. If Hans goes over the cliff at any point, the game ends; however, the contestant keeps any small prizes won up to that point. If the contestant's bids are a total of $25 or less away from the actual prices of the 2-digit prizes at the end of the game, the contestant wins all three small prizes and a grand prize.

Let's get this over with

PRIZE 1: House of Bloom Plant Care Products.
PRIZE 2: Sarah Coventry Necklace
PRIZE 3: Mary Kay Cosmetics

How much is Prize 1?
James says $30- WRONG!
Hans moves up to $3- the price is $27.

How much is Prize 2?
James says $150 but after the audience shouts, he changes his mind and says $280.
