Bidding Round #1- #197, Tammy! :-D

Showcase Showdown #1- This time, the Big Wheel kills off the hottie and the best contestant of the day. Sigh.

Any Number- Ouch. Always hate those Any Number losses on 4th and goal at the 1.

Showcase- Curse those close together ARPs!

BEST CONTESTANT OF THE DAY- Tammy, as previously mentioned.

SHOW SUMMARY AND GRADE- Average show... Grade: 2

All I have to say is yay Shell Game! The fact that they don't play it that often makes it extra special when they do. Decent show otherwise

Tammy seemed kind of insane. Not the "jump all over the stage" or "hurt Bob" kind of insane most contestants are, but she just seemed... insane, with her odd little quips to Bob, her shrieking "HIGHER!," and seeming flightiness. She was fun!

Speaking of Tammy, as tiny as she was and still able to get the wheel all the way around, there seems to be little excuse for any other young contestants not to be able to do it!

I was hoping the first half car game would be for a cheap car. It would've been cool if the contestant who won the car wasn't the biggest winner in the first half of the show. Over $19,000 worth of trips in Most Expensive... that's got to be really close to a daytime record for prize value in pricing games not including games for cars, Golden Road, or Plinko.

Twice today I thought the game was going to be Bullseye again, just because Roger could. Actually, Bullseye again would've been cooler than Now or Then, anyway.

So I guess John proves to us all once and for all that you can be a beach bum without wearing flip flops, since he pretty much admitted it himself.  Nice guy, anyway.

Krystian looked like she would be fun, too. Just not meant to be, I guess.

[color=0066FF]EDIT:  My post seemed to have earlier made itself into one large, ugly paragraph.  I'm guessing it's another forum bug.[/color]

Did everyone notice that Rob's shirt said something about "Bob Barger"?

Most Expensive: MONSTER win here! I thought Rio was going to be it.

Lucky Seven: When they showed the Mustang, I knew it was going to be lost. The only thing I was hoping for here was a WIPEOUT on the first pick, because it was possible to happen, especially because people tend to overprice these. Sadly, it didn't happen (The price was $21,384).

Shell Game: Nice to see it appear, and won!

Balance Game: Another surprise win! That guess looked too expensive.

Now or Then: Easy.

Any Number: I thought the Jeep was going to slightly more expensive than it was, since they've adjusted prices for Damsler/Chrysler prices recently. Today, they didn't realize that. If it had been that way, Rob might have had a better shot at the Jeep.

Showcases: If only both had said $19,000....

Overall: Average today. If only they had picked better car games...

Yes!  Shell Game is Played. :-D  :-D And I'm very happy that it is won!

Others:

Most Expensive:  I thought Hong Kong was the cheapest and Venice was the costliest.

Lucky 7: EVIL!

Balance Game:  I thought $8995 was too expensive.

Now or Then:  Easy; I guessed Roger wanted it won.

Any #: I had a hunch that the other 1 would be in the jeep, and I was right. :-?

Showcases:  I thought Rob's $16,000 wouldn't cover the boat.  I was wrong.

Overall: Aside from Shell Game, it was a fairly average show.

All the good stuff today happened in the first half of the show.  

Wow, Most Expensive for 3 trips!  Maybe that Triple Play loss on Friday brought this on.  :-)  And for a total of almost $20K in prizes?!  Those trips were expensive, no doubt about that.  Got a bit nervous as the first two trips' prices were revealed, but Hong Kong trumped all.  Lovely win.

And for once, no one guessed a 6 or something for the second digit in the Mustang!  Amazing!  :-P  And that's too bad she didn't win; for sure I thought her guess on the third digit was plausible... I suppose not, then.  (Then again, I keep on thinking Mustangs are always $21,684  :-P )

Shell Game was a pleasant surprise.  Somehow, I don't know why, I had a feeling it was going to show up.  Good suspense in the end with the two remaining shells.  

That's one heck of an expensive TV and storing unit.  I think I need one of those.  The lowering platform for the TV was neat.  

Do people tend to forget that another 1 or something appears on the board?  I thought that couch was $760, but it was a no brainer to not pick 0 as the last digit in the jeep anyways.  Too bad it didn't work out for him.

Interesting Showcase 1.  Great acting, and an even crazier voiceover from Rich.  :-)  I thought if the bids got switched, they'd both have a better chance of winning.  Shows how little I know about boats.

Most Expensive for trips is awesome enough...but the ones offered today were worth almost $20,000!

And Shell Game is awesome, obviously...but in the first half, and not first?  Amazing.

I really hope Bart quits using that stupid close-up shot of the Turntable soon.  It looks awful.

On the other hand, the long-range shot he took of Any Number was pretty neat.

Rich was hilarious during the first showcase. :-)

I originally thought it was an embarrassing typo, but it actually meant that he has a grandfather named Bob Barger, I believe.

I think the shirt had a tee-hee value out of it.

The highlight of this show was all the stuff being offered.  $19,610 in Most Expensive, $5900 in Shell Game being the cheapest game of the 6.  The "Hi Lo TV set" which always amuses me (which I thought was 5-figures) and some killer bikes in SC2.

I wonder if Rich Fields would moonlight as a voice-over actor in his spare time.....

I think today's playing of Most Expensive offered the most expensive prizes ever offered in the daytime version of this game. Very good win!

It's always nice to see Shell Game played!

Is this the first time that Balance Game is played on the same day as a small prize game?

If only Range Game was played today instead of Balance Game, all the pricing games today would have been around since 1980 or earlier.

PG #1 - Wow--Most Expensive for three expensive trips!  I got scared when the Rio price was revealed cuz I know that Hong Kong has been notoriously cheap in the past.  Good thing it wasn't the case today.

PG #2 - Lucky 7 in the 2d slot!  :-D  For a Mustang!  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:  I would've been in trouble in this game as well.  I had 2-7-7, which would've left me $1 for the final digit.

PG #3 - Yay!  Shell Game!  :-P  Shelly joins Markers and Poker as the games that have seen just 4 playing this season.  Joker is the only game that has seen fewer (2).

PG #4 - Balance Game 4th!  :-D  I actually would've lost this game today.  I had $7,995.  This game has been on a mini-hot streak lately.  Isn't this now the third time in a row Balance has been won?

PG #5 - Looks like Roger used only one THEN product today.  When was the last time only one THEN product was used in a Now/Then playing?

My showcase bids - FRSBS:  $18,400.  Random room/motorcycles:  $19,900.
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

Poor Karen. That was a tough game of Lucky $even.

Now...or Then seemed easy even for me.

Balance Game was a tough call, but a great win.

Any Number: I knew he needed the other one.
