Safe Cracker - The moment that Shay pick $670 dollars for the safe there was no doubt in my mind he had loss. My guess was $760 dollars.

Temptation - ouch! That was hard to swallow. But in Michelle's case, better safe than sorry.

Plinko = ugh!

Squeeze Play- The moment that megan choose to take the 3 out I had feeling that Megan had loss.

Money Game- ouch!

Hit Me- A Great Win.

Temptation- Are you kidding me. For the first time in a long time, somebody gets the price right, but they quit. Ouch.

Bidding Round #3- #195, Megan! :-D (I guess I'll make this the new hottie smiley)

Bidding Round #5- #196, Jeana! :-D

Showcase- Sweet, Megan is today's cham- wait, check that. :-(

BEST CONTESTANT OF THE DAY- Michelle.

SHOW SUMMARY AND GRADE- A quiet show to start off the week and the legacy (ha) of our new chat room... Grade: 1

Well... I can't really say this was a particularly good episode.  About all it had going for it were a couple of rarities.  The bad kind, I guess, but heck, rare stuff is always cool, anyway.

First, I don't care that Michelle had the price right in Temptation.  I've been wanting to see someone bail out with the right price for years just to see it actually happen!  Besides, I know a lot of you guys would've been calling her stupid for not going for the sure thing if she did go for the car and lost--you guys are predictable like that!

And second, the ineligibility.  Was it a case of appearing on the show before, or was it a different eligibility problem?  If it was a case of appearing on the show before, does anyone have any clue when Megan might have appeared before today?  I mean, she looked fairly young, so it couldn't have been too long ago, right?

When was the last time Roger set up Hit Me without a single product, besides the actual ace itself, that looked like an ace?  That made today's playing easier than normal.

Vicious Money Game today:  35 wasn't right!  I really can't blame Jeana for losing, as the truck is cheaper than it looks, and 56 looked terrible for the last two numbers.  Which ironically would've drawn me to the 56, but I really can't expect any normal contestant to go for such an oddball number like that.

Speaking of Jeana... yes, heels.  Yes ;-).

Safe Crackers: Why do they have to make this a tossup? And why does the game reveal need to be more awkward than it is?

Temptation: OUCH. So close, and yet so far to a win here! I knew she had the price right, yet I seriously thought she was going to say 9 for the third digit. What made her say 2? Anwyay, if this pattern keeps up, we'll finally have a win on the season's last playing of the season.

Plinko: Most of the small prizes were tough. And the player didn't have much luck either.

SSD1: Too bad the 100-year-old didn't get up on stage.

Squeeze Play: Hard. I thought$7,380 was the most logical price.

Money Game: It's a shame this was lost today. The last two digits, 56, was pretty high for an average contestant to choose. If only she hadn't burnt off her first two choices...

Hit Me: It was won!

Showcases: Another tough break for Michelle. I had a feeling the first one was over $20K, because the spa was a Jacuzzi, and those are pretty expensive. Given that, I thought Michelle had won. But, at least Michelle won something, and given that Megan was DQed, hopefully Michelle will be given her showcase anyway, if that's alright with her.

Overall: Decent show today. If only there were a few more wins today...

I heard about the ineligibility issue. To be fair to Megan, who did nothing wrong, it should be noted that it was the fourth contestant called, not the fourth contestant onstage, who was ineligible (they gave Rich the wrong thing to say).

Anybody have a copy of the May 3, 2001 episode?

Ah.  So that's Michelle, then.  In that case, I guess the right person won the showcase!  And it was the best possible time to get a rare bailout with the car being the right price, since it would've just been uglier if she actually did win the car!

Well, with that straightened out, does anyone know when Michelle might have appeared on the show before, or for that matter, if that's even the reason she was ineligible?

And heels, considering you have the ineligible contestant for you Contestant of the Day, it might be appropriate to change that to Megan, who was pleasant enough, and might deserve a little positive attention after her looking like a troublemaker today.

Not much to say here, but:

Temptation:  OW! Painful to see her bail out with the right car price.

Hit Me: a great win on the very difficult playing.

Overall: Wow!  What's going on here?  A streak of dull shows ever since last Monday.  I hope it changes soon.

shellgame, how was Hit Me particularly difficult today?  Today was the first time in a long time where Roger didn't use a product that looked like an ace, other than the actual ace.

And because I forgot to mention it earlier for some reason, did anyone else find it funny how Jeana kept saying she'd been watching the show for 14 years?  Guess she was just wasting the rest of her life :lol:!

Pricing Game Length:

Temptation -- 3:56
Pl!nko! -- 3:07

Did anyone else think that between the transition the of the first One-Bid and Safe Crackers there was an edit?

All right I was a bit too harsh on this.  None of the products were hard, EXCEPT the window cleaner.

I sure pity the ineligible contestant.
But I have a question: If a contestant had to give back his/her prizes for being ineligible, do they give away the returned prizes to another contestant?

John said in another thread that Megan was the ineligible one. She was a contestant on a previous show. There go my plans to get on again. :)
