TPIR is not the only gameshow referenced here, as it also has something resembling the Bonus Wheel on Wheel of Fortune.

Tonight, the audience is made up entirely of college students who will vote in their first-ever elections, seeing that this is an election year. A patriotic song plays during the opening as Rich welcomes the audience to the show. Samples of signs include: BEWARE OF EL CHEAPO, A CAR IN EVERY GARAGE, and VOTE NO ON DOUBLE-OVERBIDS.

Top Winner: Jenna

Computer, Washington, DC, Cadillac Escalade
Jenna bids $55,000

For the 11th time in a row, no millionaire.

I'm not a lawyer, but while those doors are clearly a reference to TPIR, the design is different enough that it easily falls into the realm of parody/allusion. For that reason, I doubt that TPIR or Fremantle would have been made aware of this while it was in development.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Showcase Your Ideas: Big Wheel Concepts
« Last post by SteveGavazzi on Today at 01:13:19 PM »
Guys you are free to showcase your ideas for your big wheel concepts!

You act like this wasn't true before.  (Also, what does this even mean? :confused: )

I don't want to discourage you from posting, Pirfan72, but you've made five posts so far, all of which were starting new threads and at least two of which sound like you think you're doing something official, which, I must reiterate, isn't the case.  I know you want to participate, but you're being too enthusiastic for your own good right now.

Wow...I don't know if their likeness is protected by a copyright or anything like that, but that is definitely the Big Doors.
