William can win a Elegant Oval Glass Top Dining Group worth $1,453 by playing a game called FINISH LINE.

The centerpiece of Finish Line was a game board depicting a horse racing track with a horse and a finish line, both of which could move down the track but began at the starting line. The track was marked with a scale representing dollars.
The contestant was shown three pairs of small prizes, one at a time, and had to pick the prize of the pair which was more expensive. The prices of the rejected prizes were revealed as the contestant selected, and a finish line moved down the track one step for each dollar in the prices of the prizes, such that the finish line settled at the total of the prices of the rejected items. Once all three selections were made, the race began. A horse moved one step for each dollar in the prices of the chosen prizes. If the horse crossed the finish line, the contestant won a large prize. In order words, if the total of the prices of the selected prizes was larger than the total of prices of the rejected prizes, the contestant won. Sounds like a cross between GIVE OR KEEP and HURDLES.

PRIZES 1: Du Pont Lucite Wall Paint and a Corbell Silver Dish
Which one is the Most Expensive? William says the Paint which is put on the Horse
The Finish Line moves up to 19.

PRIZES 2: Contempra Industries Yogurt Maker and a Westclox Digital Clock.
William says the Clock is more expensive so he puts that on the Horse.
The Finish Line moves up to 36. So the Yogurt Maker was $17

PRIZES 3: Seal-a-Meal Food Sealer and Oneida Silver Crystal Decanter.
William says the Crystal is higher so he puts that on the Horse.
The Finish Line moves up to 62. The Food Sealer was $26.

It's POST TIME!
The Horse moves down the Track. The Paint was $27.
The Horse keeps moving down. The Clock was $25.
The Horse breaks through the Finish Line and up to 77! And William Wins! The Decanter was $30.
