The TALK Is Right / Re: Season 51 Bold Predictions

I have to check to see when they last offered a car under $20,000.  In other words, I have to make time to do so.  Speaking of $20 Grand, I know that they haven't offered a showcase under that amount since 2014, though they continued to offer sub- 20K cars well after that point.  There's no relation I suppose, but it's just something I thought of; in the mid-90s when they stopped offering showcases under $10K, they did away with 4-digit cars a year prior. 

Anyway, I seconded; I don't think you can find anything on the cheap anymore,  I could even see the minimum being at least $22,000 for their automobiles.

They offer sub-$20K autos all the time, especially in fee games, especially especially in budget mode.

I thought the reason they phased out <$10K cars had more to do with it being impossible to find cars at that price point rather than some self-imposed minimum. But that’s not the case today—even though inflation is driving the price of the average car farther from $20K, Chevy Sparks and Nissan Versas and Hyundai Accents are well under $20K and I don’t see those models going away anytime soon.

Speaking of that last "prediction", I agree with pannoni1 in terms of the bonus increase (though I disagree with a decrease).  To be more specific, I can see it; maybe as a nod to the game's 45th anniversary.  Probably up to $1,000

The Hole in One bonus could be $25,000, but it wouldn’t change the fact that it would only be won twice in the last twelve seasons.

The amount is less exciting than the fact that it happens at all.

While more predictions may come up, I have a handful myself.


- The chance at Shell Game perfection plays out.  IOW, a contestants goes 4/4; he or she may or may not get the cash bonus
- Someone goes 5/5 in Switcheroo (either in one try or two tries)
- $20,000 is won in both Hot Seat & Time Is Money
- $10,000 is won in Half Off by a contestant having to choose one of sixteen boxes for the win
- 3 Strikes is lost with three draws
- Someone decides to risk $12,000 for $25,000 in To The Penny, but is unsuccessful
- Two people win $11,000 or more in the SCSD, one per half
- At least one DSW is within $10 or his or her showcase
- Some wins a $51,000+ showcase with a $25,000+ margin thanks to their opponent's $2 overbid
- Stack The Deck Is Won
- In Pocket Change, someone finds a way to lose despite making only one mistake
- In Pocket Change, someone reaches three bucks & is pretty much up against it, but wins thanks to a $2 card, one $.75 card & the 50 cent card
- Hole In One is won by a contestant putting from the sixth line

Speaking of that last "prediction", I agree with pannoni1 in terms of the bonus increase (though I disagree with a decrease).  To be more specific, I can see it; maybe as a nod to the game's 45th anniversary.  Probably up to $1,000

On the August 14th episode, first half-hour: Impressively quick $50K win!

The first thing that came to my mind was “everything” for Things You Try, thinking of the song from Zootopia. Using the word “new” as in “new shoes”, “new clothes” and “new food” was good. Yep; first “Yahtzee”, then “Monopoly, then “Craps” for Games With Dice. 

I would have added “jigsaw” to “a puzzle” for Things You Put Together (Assemble).

On the second half-hour: I know contestants want to do their best in the main game, but if you only need say 5 out of 7 why not go for the easiest 5? If something is creating even a bit of trouble, I would pass it.

(Blank) through the tulips?

Things That Are Silver? “Old dollar coins” came to my mind first. How about “tarnished forks”? “Grand Central” was excellent from Strahan for Kinds of Stations (all I could think of under time pressure were “gas ones” and “train ones”), but I’m not sure about his “The Great” for Lakes. 

For Harsh Things: “Siberian winters”? I thought “rough criticism” was pretty good; I would have replaced “rough” with “strong”.

My first clue for Things You Look Into was “a crystal ball”.


No $100K tries tonight, and no Mystery 7 wins.

Torgo hasn't been a mod in 5 years. He literally did the S44 first half recaps and that's it. He has no power and hasn't in years.

If that's the case can I ask how he got a copy of a report I made on one of his posts and mockingly made it his signature for a while? Unless post reports are sent to the reported user as well.

Just to clarify, it's not this thread specifically that's made me feel that way about Torgo.  It's been my experience that he's a horse's ass who has no respect for anyone besides himself.

I'm not the sole decision-maker around here, but given that he seems to enjoy actively disliking our site on the site itself, I don't feel that he has any business being involved in running it.

I disagree with Gavazzi, but I will say this. At some point, we need to sit down as moderators and decide what we're doing when that eventuality occurs. I know, I've been planning for it. I told Torgo as much off site. I expect this site to be overrun with people and as someone who has written obituaries before, I  feel like it's going to end up being me handling this. But we need to have this discussion off site.

I am perfectly fine with Torgo remaining banned forever.
