Barker's Beauties: Janice, Kathleen, Chantel

Here it comes! Television’s most exciting hour of fantastic prizes! Celebrating its 25th year on CBS, the fabulous, 60-minute Price Is Right!


First Four: Right-to-left
Microphone Handoff: Janice

Bob enters the studio through the audience. We celebrate again with some handshakes and high fives.

1st IUFB - A new double oven range: Tappan over/under gas range with 2 spacious ovens plus electronic ignition, black glass doors, and automatic cook timer (Chantel and Kathleen)

Also going to the winner is a supply of Garlique garlic tablets (Chantel)


Bob wastes no time on Dorothy, who asks if it was "a little over". Did she see our primetime special, when Bob calls out a contestant who bid $9,000 on surfboards. On our next special, we're going to see a woman bid $9,000 on a range...and then have the audacity to say "Am I a little bit over?". :oldlol:

Actual Retail Price: $1,097!

Bryan is walking the Golden Road!

The road begins with a can of S&W Garbanzo Beans, which will lead him to...

1. A handsome gentleman's chest: Attractive gentleman's sitting atop an apothecary table, both made from natural pine wood, the 2-tone color adding style to outstanding designs (Chantel)

If he wins that, he can also win...

2. A beautiful new dining group: Outdoor Lifestyle handcrafted inlaid glass table and 4 armchairs in elegant black, durable furniture to last a lifetime (Janice)

And if he wins this, he can play for a prize that is worth more than $41,000! Open the doors!

3. Chevrolet Corvette Collector's Edition coupe, equipped with standard features, 50-state emission, Collector's Edition package, Delco Bose music system with cassette and Compact Disc player, equipment package 1SV, removable roof panel, and magic wand theft deterrent system (everyone)

The price of the beans is...


One of these numbers will be used to fill in the price of the chest.

█ 3 8

Bryan picks the 6.

6 3 8

Correct! Next is the dining group.

1 █ 7 0

Bryan picks the 3.

1 8 7 0

Wrong! Bryan wins the chest.

Before the calldown, we did an investigation of the bid of $9,000. Dorothy looked over her shoulder to an audience member named Kathleen. Dorothy looked so innocently, and she said during the commercial that the lady back there told her. Kathleen was trying to hide. She was actually trying to say $1,400 when she held her hands up...but Dorothy thought she kept repeating the numbers to add them up. If Bob hadn't insisted on a bid earlier, the bid would've been at least $22,000. :rollold:

2nd IUFB - An elegant aqua marine and diamond cocktail ring: Jewels by Angelo cocktail ring, with diamonds framing the beautiful 2-karat aqua marine stone set in a tapered wide shank 14-karat yellow gold band (Janice)


Bob would not allow Dorothy to look at Kathleen for a bid. :P

Actual Retail Price: $1,650!

Holly is playing Cliff Hangers for a new spa: Catalina Spas San Clemente Elite spa with octagonal design and deep foot well that provide ample leg room and comfort for multiple users, a prize worth $5,345 (Chantel).

Holly can keep the Mountain Climber safe by pricing these small items (Kathleen):
1. Milton Bradley's Scrabble crossword board game
2. Coffee-At-A-Touch 1-liter thermal carafe for serving hot or cold beverages, with 1-button pouring and made of stainless steel
3. Jay Imports 4-piece canister set that's colorful and fruitful yet practical with its graduated sizes

Holly thinks the price of the game is $15.

*BUZZ* The Mountain Climber goes up the mountain...and stops at 3. The price is...


Holly thinks the price of the carafe is $25.

*BUZZ* The Mountain Climber goes up the mountain...and stops at 6. The price is...


Holly thinks the price of the canister set is $40.



Holly wins the spa!

3rd IUFB - An exquisite silver-plated punch set: Michael C. Fina Co., Inc. designer collection 15-piece punch bowl set in luxurious silver plate (Chantel and Kathleen)


Actual Retail Price: $585!

Camron is playing Take Two for a comfortable recliner, a charming brass cradle, a kitchen safe, and a challenging exercise bike:
1. Action Recliners by Lane spoiler recliner with thickly padded arm pillows, 3-tiered back, and deeply-padded cushion seat (Janice)
2. Swan Brass Beds solid brass cradle featuring decorative porcelain accents and optional rocking stabilizer, the coordinating bedding included (Kathleen)
3. Attractive kitchen safe made of natural pine wood, the 2-tone color adding style to an outstanding and functional design, perfect for kitchen or dining areas (Kathleen and Chantel)
4. Diamondback 1000U upright bike with heart rate training, easy programming, and rock-solid construction (Chantel)

Apparently, Camron has seen every pricing game except this one. More forgivable than not knowing about Clock Game, at least. :P


Camron picks the bicycle and the cradle.


Camron wins all four prizes in one try! He knows this game now!

Even better for Kathleen in the audience, Bryan listened to her during his playing of Golden Road.

1st Showcase Showdown:

4th IUFB - A handsome new bar set: The Game Room Gallery oak bar that adds a touch of glamor to the home, includes a pair of 30-inch bar stools (Chantel with a dog, and Kathleen)

5th IUFB - New his-and-hers snow skis: Rossignol skis, boots, and poles for him and her, versatile all-mountain all-terrain ski equipment for a balance between performance and effortless skiing (Janice on the Turntable)


This time, Dorothy accidentally said "thousand" instead of "hundred", and the camera points at Kathleen again.

Actual Retail Price: $1,794!

Alicia is playing Hit Me for a beautiful sectional sofa: multi-pillow 2-piece sectional with grandeur of emerald green fabric embellishing the graceful contemporary styling, the use of chaise providing a dramatic change in look; plus Carson's of High Point 3-piece brass and glass occasional table group (Kathleen); and a Collier's 24-volume encyclopedia providing a home library for a lifetime of learning (Chantel); a prize worth $5,975.

Actual Retail Price: $409!

Dorothy must find something to watch at the First Four Breakfast Club.

Lauri is playing One Away for a new car: 1997 Mercury Mountaineer 4-door 2WD, equipped with standard features, California emission, equipment package 655A, electrochromatic mirror, and pin stripes (unmodelled, until Janice and Kathleen enter).

Telephone Game was retired because it was lame. (And no, we’re not making that up – that really is the official reason.)

Fan of The Price is Right since the 1990's, my early childhood...and really happy that summer break was a thing.

Retro recapper for The Price is Right and Wheel of Fortune episodes. (Recaps on hiatus as of May 27, 2024 due to life changes.)
