Opening: Hi, Ted!
Any: Kathy was definitely aiming for a loss on this one, having both the 5 and 0 in the iPod stuff. David made it exciting, going to a full count and winning.
One-Bid #2: Watch out for Sharon! She's a screamer and could do serious bodily harm to Drew. Obvious edit right before the camera was sent down.
Baggy: Thanks a lot, audience! It's been ages since the last $16,000 winner and you blew it for Zachary.
One-Bid #3: Yay! Big Green Egg!
Nice job giving Terry that price, Ted.
?Switch?: Don't know what Terry was thinking in switching those prices, but the audience made up for its previous atrocity by booing him into un-switching.
Swappy: Another obvious edit. Either that, or really bad camerawork. The setup was extremely easy.
Away: Yay! Five-horner!
And Sharon was just terrific throughout this whole segment.
PA#: Julie tried to go with
4077, but more audience booing prevented another impending loss. I think this might be the first time in PA#'s history that a contestant changed his or her mind just before the host lifted up the correct answer.
SC #1: While this showcase was poorly written, it does get high marks for utilizing the three contestants who didn't win one-bids. You can tell that Terry got his bid again from Ted. Given how close his bid was to my bid, I knew that a DSW was likely.
SC #2: Oh noes! The evil "Every Trip in the House" showcase! Even worse, it's an all-green-screen house.
My showcase bids:
Result: Wow, what a great day to have a snow day from work! Thanks to Ted, Terry scored the very first* showcase exacta in the history of Daytime Price and only the second* showcase exacta in all of TPIR history.
Well, dubious congratulations to Ted on now getting blacklisted/Willyed/Voltaired.*=Does not count Barney's exacta on "How I Met Your Mother"
