Hello all - apologies if this is the wrong forum. I was at lunch with a family friend today who casually mentioned he'd been featured on an episode of TPIR back in (what he believes to be) early 1996. He gave me a few details about the game and said that he'd love to see the episode again if anyone happens to have a copy. Here's everything he remembers:

He believes he was the first or second contestant called; his name is Dave Corsten.

He played the Check game, and his full name was written on the check - he lost, and still has the "VOID" prop check in his office today.

He spun and lost in the first wheel spin (he thinks he got around 40 cents on the first spin, then went over a dollar on the second spin).

He believes the first item up for bids was a large trampoline, which he won.

He said the winner of the final showcase round was a man named Jesus.

He thinks it was taped sometime around February or March of 1996, but he's not 100% certain (it was, after all, a while ago).

Hopefully someone out there knows of this episode -- sorry, that's all I have to go off of. Any help finding it would be really appreciated. Thank you in advance for your patience and help  ;-)

Checking the archive, should either be 0012K (aired 5/28/96) or 9844D (2/8/96) depending upon when it taped. Neither episode has a recap so I can't narrow it down further from there. All the other shows that have Check Game in the first half with an airdate between February '96 and the end of Season 24 have recaps and are known to not be it. Hope this helps a smidge.
YES! You have them all right! You win $2,500! You will putt from the closest line!

Jhc2010 putts from the closest line and WINS!!!

Congratulations! Those 2 cars are yours! Now we go to the Showcase Showdown! You will spin first. Pick a number between 1 and 20.

I think I have located my notes for the episode. I believe this one is it, February 20, 1998. If so, Iíll try to dig through the dvds when I have a moment unless someone else posts it before then.

I showed this to my friend Dave and he says this is absolutely it, wow! What meticulous notes -- I wish I was that organized!

Thank you so much! I've been scouring YouTube to no success so far, but I'm still looking -- if you come across the video please let me know, we'd really appreciate it!


Thank you both for looking!  :-D
