Recap for May 18, 1977 (2383D)
« on: October 13, 2022, 08:50:29 PM »
Here it comes! Television's most exciting hour of fantastic prizes! The fabulous 60-minute Price is Right!

Martha, Judy, Octavia and Billie, come on down! You are the first four contestants on The Price is Right!

Johnny, somewhere in this audience, there is a lady or gentleman that belongs in this spot on Contestant's Row! And the name of that person is....

Gertrude, come on down!

Octavia- 455
Billie- 280

ARP: $350

Judy will win a 1977 Chevrolet Nova Sedan worth $4,607! Judy will be playing the relatively new game HOLE-IN-ONE!

HOLE-IN-ONE revolves around putting on a miniature golf-style hole which consists of a long straightaway ending in a circular area contained by a short rail. The hole is in the center of this area and is larger than a standard golf hole. The straightaway has six evenly spaced lines, the last of which is where the straightaway meets the circular area. The lines represent the possible distances from which the contestant will have to putt for the car. Six grocery items are used to determine the line from which line the contestant will putt. The contestant is asked to order the items from least to most expensive, with flags representing the items being placed in the given order at each line on the straightaway, starting with the one farthest from the hole. The prices are then revealed in the order the flags were placed. As long as each item is higher-priced than the previous item, the contestant moves up to that line. Otherwise, the contestant does not advance and the remaining flags are removed without their prices revealed. If the contestant orders the grocery items perfectly, he/she receives a cash bonus of $500.
The contestant has just ONE ATTEMPT to sink a putt from the line he/she earned to win the car; before this the host asks for silence from the in-studio audience so the contestant can putt correctly, as is the case for miniature golf tournaments. As in miniature golf, a putt counts if it is sunk after bouncing off the rail.

Let's see the Items Judy will be working with:
ITEM 1: Cheerios Cereal
ITEM 2: Daisy Legs Pantyhose
ITEM 3: HyTop Orange Juice
ITEM 4: Armor All Protectant Spray
ITEM 5: Goop Cleaner
ITEM 6: Enoz Moth Ice Crystals

What is the least Expensive Item to start with?
Judy starts with Item 3 on Line 1.
Judy next puts Item 1 on Line 2.
Judy then puts Item 6 on Line 3.
Judy then puts Item 2 on Line 4.
Judy then puts Item 5 on Line 5.
and Item 4 goes on the last Line.

LINE 1: $0.25
LINE 2: $0.51
LINE 3: $1.49
LINE 4: $2.79
LINE 5: $0.69!
