What are the contestants looking at when in contestants row awaiting Bob's correct bidder reveal?  Often you can see the winner looking down at the podiums and cheering before Bob names them.  Can they see their price blinking or is there another indicator of who has won?

Also, does it drive anyone else here crazy when a contestant underbids another contestant by $1 over and over again like the other day?

I think that link takes you to a general address that's the result of an undefined search.

Here's a direct link to the page with the picture:

Thanks for the pic.  It would be nice if they could put 4 led's up there too to show the other bids.  Would do Away with alot of those aggravating "What was his bid?"s.

It's quite bemusing. The people who bid $1 under are either trying to hit it exactly or under the misguided impression that if the previous high bid is $850, he/she bids $849 and the price is $825, that he/she will win, forgetting that the main rule the past fifty years has been you cannot go over.
Bureaucracy is cutting the red tape lengthwise.
