Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 5/17/2024

Dice Game was exciting and I sometimes wonder if Drew watches the Barker era on Pluto because he's been setting Dicey's final reveal up like Bob used to recently.

I can't recall if it was an interview Drew did himself or from an audience report, but I remember seeing relatively recently that he's been watching Bob-era shows.

Check out Give or Keep for a very goofy prize package: Dodgers season tickets and a baseball glove-shaped "sofa" (barely big enough to accommodate two people)!

This show also features very chatty contestants to the point where Bob begins having to rush the show. Bullseye takes 8 minutes!!

Side by Side or Freeze Frame for a car. Obviously for Freeze, you’d have to replace half the cards with three digits - as it rotates, you’d always have a five digit price is the frame.

Might be hard to create a not obvious setup, though.

Unless the first number was just a given, then you were picking out the four (as usual) to complete the price.

What a win for Lindsey in Dice Game, that was a minefield of a setup especially rolling the 3 and 4 for the middle numbers.

On the other hand, tough luck for Daniel in It's in the Bag. I had a feeling the sunscreen would be the $13.99 product, but I had the coffee and chicken switched for the last two.

Difficult setups in the second half besides Pick a Number.
While the first two bags are always the cheapest and most expensive, I've noticed the expensive item is never something you eat or drink, am I right on that? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Here it comes! Television’s most exciting hour of fantastic prizes! The fabulous, 60-minute Price Is Right!

HOUR POWER!

First Four: Right-to-left
Microphone Handoff: Janice



Bob wants to talk about a very frightening thing...middle age. He read the other day that the average lifespan of a man in the United States is 70 years old. Therefore, at 35, you are the most middle age.

Today, our beloved producer Phil Wayne is 35 years old! Bob has everyone wish him a Happy Birthday!

Eunice's bid was briefly entered on the wrong board, presumably the blue one.

After Okla's bid, Bob's curious if she was born in Oklahoma and they named her after the abbreviation. Then he wonders if Carol was born in Carolina.
:P

Actual Retail Price: $350!

Carol didn't think she even had a chance to get in Contestant's Row because she was last in line. But when they come out, the staff go out and talk to the people in line out there. They just want people who will be fun.

Carol is playing Any Number for a set of bunk beds or a new car:
1. King Koil Sleep Products heavy post designed bunk beds featuring double guard rail, adjustable liner, and 2 big drawers that provide ample storage (Holly)
2. American Motors AMC Concord DL 2-door sedan, equipped with standard features, bumper guards, steel-belted radial white stripe tires, tinted glass, visibility group, wire wheel covers, automatic transmission, tilt steering wheel, heavy-duty battery, and locking gas cap (Janice)
