Pushover- Ouch! The moment that Kelly stopped at $6,550, I had a feeling she had lost.

Master Key- Wow! who would have thought that Jamie had both the key that opens nothing and the master key?

In The Bag-The moment that Gwendolin put the draino on $10,99, there was no doubt in my  mind she had lost.

Dice Game- Nellena had no problem with this game.

(Bag) Wow...once again, the audience denies someone more riches than she should have earned. But hey, Gwen went with them! Still, too bad there.

(Freeze) Don't know what everyone was thinking when the price of $3,611 was chosen for the TV. No way, no way!

Dice Game was an easy win, while today's Master Key will probably go down as the most interesting. All in all, a nice show.

Pushover: To me, the spa was a tossup between $6,550 and $8,290. It didn't help that this wasn't one of the familiar spas we've been seeing lately.

Master Key: The small prizes were pretty easy to get. Nice win!

It's In The Bag: The third bag was the only hard thing in the lineup, and it was a tossup between the Aspirin and the Calcium. That's a shame, because Gwendolyn looked like a nice contestant.

Danger Price: I would have lost here, because the computer didn't look so cheap. The bed looked more like it was $1,318, but it turned out to be even more expensive. And the intruments are getting expensive recently! Too bad Keith couldn't duplicate his reaction from getting out of Contestant's Row after winning this game.

Dice Game: Nellena knew what she was doing, especially after saying that the second number was higher than a 4.

Freeze Frame: Could you believe that TV was so cheap?

Showcases: Given that Kelli clearly underbid on her showcase, I thought Keith had a fair shot. Sadly, he couldn't take advantage of it.

Overall: OK show, but nothing spectacular.

Bidding Round #1- #229, Jamie (, AND #230, Nellena (! :-D

Master Key- Cool, picking the dud and the master key doesn't happen often. Neither does a win in this game, which was nice to see today.

It's In the Bag- That was pathetic. Absolutely pathetic.

Showcase- Trailers may be random, but come on, they sure as heck aren't that cheap.

BEST CONTESTANT OF THE DAY- Good contestants today. I can't pick; it's up to Frank.

SHOW SUMMARY AND GRADE- Lately, TPIR hasn't been overly spectacular or overly bad. It's been pretty solid as of late. Today was no exception... Grade: 3

Push Over: The first 0 made me lock in 6550 as a choice. But then I saw the other 0 for 8290. "Could that be it?" Yes. "Aww!"

Master Key: I cannot recall to the best of my own personal knowledge when a contestant gets the nuthin' key and the Master Key. It feels like a historic moment to me (at least only me).
I know the game is old, but not that old to call it old.

It's in the Bag: The 4K and 8K bags were confusing, especially when Gwendolyn picked the CLR for the $10.97 bag. I had the strong feeling that she's wrong about this. She solidified this by saying that she "came with nothing... and so on". I just couldn't think of where to put the Bayer. Knowing it was worthless made it easy.

Danger Price: Wonderful play. I just didn't think the drums would be that much.

Dice Game: Oh! I know there have been plenty of cars that end in 5. But I had the fearful scare that the last number may be 1 or 2. At least my confidence overran my brain on this one.

Freeze Frame: Once again, I'm thinking this prize might end in 0. But then, I thought, "maybe 5", but there was no way it could be 9925 (or 8225). I totally locked in 2599. How in the world did Matthew think it was 3611?!???

I wanted Keith to bid around 22000. I wonder how he'll be if he did......

Post by: goldroadfanatic on June 07, 2006, 02:41:55 PM
I will have to agree that today's playing of Master Key was very historic, where a contestant picked the dud and master keys.
Title: Re: FULL RECAP - TPiR 06/07/2006
Post by: LiteBulb88 on June 07, 2006, 03:32:12 PM
I'm curious if, in Master Key, Bob knows what keys the contestant has.  In particular, in this case, it was much more dramatic to go from dud to all than the other way around, and so I'm wondering if Bob knew to do it that way or if we got lucky.
Title: Re: FULL RECAP - TPiR 06/07/2006
Post by: shellgame69 on June 07, 2006, 03:44:32 PM
Master Key: Wow, I never witnessed a plyer hitting the dud first, then the Master Key ever.  That was something, wasn't it?

IITB: I had a bad feeling Gwedolyn would lose once she said CLR drain cleaner as the 4K bag.

Dice Game: I was scared when Nellina rolled the 3 as the last # and said higher.  I was wrong.

Showcases: I would have went with $19,000.  $13,333 wasn't even close.  I said $24,000 in my head for the Equinox.  $19,000 wasn't even close.

Overall: It was a fun show for hump day.

Post by: Alfonzo on June 07, 2006, 03:50:02 PM
The very first time I saw Master Key in 1983 the contestant had the dud key and Master Key.

I doubt if Bob knows which key is the Master Key. I've seen at least one episode in which the contestant won both keys and the Master Key was the first one used.

Pushover: I was personally thinking $8,290, though $9,065 wasn't too unreasonable... $6,550 just didn't look like it was enough - and it wasn't. :-?

IUFB #2: Why, oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why do fools fall in love with fools like... Oops, I'm sorry... Why do contestants feel the need to bid $1 if they aren't fourth? Ugh.

Master Key: Wow, a contestant getting two keys.. And what an exciting playing - to go from picking the dummy key first to the master key? Sweet...

It's In The Bag: Gwendolyn should've followed her first instinct and gone with the Citracal... After not doing so, she should've taken the $2,000 and ran. :-?

Danger Price: Pretty obvious here: Avoid the computer.. And that is what Keith did...

I was quite stumped at that bowling equipment being so cheap. But then again, I didn't get a real good look at the balls, and really didn't do much shopping on Ebonite's website for shoes or bags... But to be that cheap, those had to be the Maxim balls, which are about $60 and have plastic covers..

(Yes, I bowl, and yes, I own an Ebonite ball, but definitely not a Maxim)...

Dice Game: Nellena scared me for a second with that first roll - I was worried she'd go lower and shoot herself in the foot.. And that last number made me a bit nervous.. But it worked out for her.. Hope her husband enjoys her old car!

Freeze Frame: Being just the TV, $2,599 made sense.. None of the other choices did... $3,611? D'OH!

Showcases: Wow, talk about a couple very low bids...

$13,333 on Showcase #1?! Yeah, it worked out better for Kelli than my bid would've ($21,000), but that wasn't even in the same zip code...

I was thinking $24,000 on Keith's... $19,500? That's not an HHR... :-?

A couple of painful bids - as in painful to watch... Oy.

pushover: i guessed $6550 as well. it could have been either of those two, but she was unlucky.
master key: i knew both sps, and this is a rare occurrence to have the dud and the master key.
iitb: no reason to get to less than $4k. even occasional viewers know $10.97 citracal, but the audience made her change her mind. but the clr in the $8k bag......EVIL! i always knew it to be $4.99. the tums i knew was $3.99.
danger price: i would have picked the computer first and been dumb. :roll: i have seen $2k computers before on this game. is that $235 bowling equipment the cheapest prize ever used in this game since when prices like that were common?
dice game: easy today, and a lot of luck made it even easier.
iufb 6: $3295? wow. they must have sold the winnebago back and used all the $$$ on these kinds of iufbs.
freeze frame: tough. i wanted to go with $2599 and would have right.
showcases: i knew both had lowballed, but i suspected kelli would win. i would have bid $21k on the trailer (ouch! over by $438!  :-( ) and $25k on the car, as i know an equinox can be expensive.

One-Bid #1 - No, that is not the same Keith Butler that has a snowball's chance in Hell of defeating Debbie Stabenow for the U.S. Senate seat in Michigan.  :-D

PG #1 - Roger's making Pushy tough again!  Aside from $2,906 and $0,655, every other price up there would've worked.

PG #2 - It's seems like forever since somebody has won both keys.  WOOHOO!  Somebody finally pulled the master key!  :-D  :-D  :-D  When was the last time somebody got both the junk key and the master key?

PG #3 - Man, Roger has been absolutely hellbent on slotting the SP and GP games back-to-back the past six weeks.  OK, how does somebody not pick the calcium for the most expensive bag?

PG #4 - Yay!  Danger Price!  :-P  Well, if they're gonna play the wrong Danger cue, it might as well be Starcrossed.  :-P

One-Bid #6 - $3,295 for that puny thing?!  Talk about your friggin' random sailboats...

PG #6 - Should not have been lost.  All the prices ending in 0 or 5 were obviously wrong.  $3,611 made absolutely no sense.  $2,599 was the only price up there that looked right.  And once again, the PG prize was cheaper than the previous IUFB.

Showcases - "No, Keith!  That won't cover the car's price!"

Final commercial - "SHOOT THE TVs!"

My bids - FRTS:  $17,591.  Car:  $27,500.

I see our friend "Anonymous" is back again.  I'm actually surprised the board allows anonymous users to post.

Anyway, I really enjoyed today's show.  The games were fun, the contestants were great, all in all, very enjoyable.

Pushover - I would have lost this, stopping at $9065.

Master Key - Just to be different, were I the contestant playing, I'd probably pick keys 1 and 5.  But this was really fun today.

IITB - Gwen fooled me for a second.  I thought she was just going to zoom through the product picks, and she did at first and then let the audience talk her out of $4000.

Danger Price - Keith gets my vote for contestant of the day.  He was just so excited to get up on stage and was fun throughout.  I would have won this I think, but the prices were much higher than I was expecting for the drum kit and the daybed.

SS#2 - I don't think Keith would have been able to take winning $10,000.  

An excellent show overall.

Actually, they aren't supposed to be.

I'll look into that immediately.

(Edit:  I found out who that anonymous character's "quadrupleplay" -- gonna check to see if he's the same one who's referred to us moderators as Nazis -- I did something to his account to see if it'll stop these anonymous users from posting as anonymous)

While I'm posting this, might as well talk about the show (or try to  lol):

Master Key..........wowzers, when's the last time that happened, both dud and the master?

Last number worried me in Dice Game.  Glad it worked out for her.

IITB:  Yikes.  Didn't she go with the correct one first then change her mind?  If that was the case......owwwwwwwwwwww.

Push Over:  Definitely was the end of the road with the blocks for the correct price.  Had that feeling from the get-go.  Seems like, after looking through the other replies, that there were a couple of good possibilies, and she chose wrong.  Oh well, ya win some, lose some, and a few get rained out.  :-)

Overall:  Not too shabby of a show.

I actually think the last playing of Master Key had both keys won, but the contestant got only the dud key and one of the small prize keys.  There was some relatively tough stuff today, although both car games got won.

Pushover: I would've been suprised if the price wasn't $8290, given the way Pushy tends to go...

IUFB#2: $1.....HMMMMMMM  :roll:

Master Key: Nice to see both the dud and the master key picked, I don't recall that happening, at least not recently. And my brain took an early commercial break because I thought the electronic game was going to be $41.

It's In The Bag: I think I was confusing the Citracal with another calcium cupplement (Os-Cal maybe?) because I thought that was around $13.99.  :-?

Danger Price: For not paying attention (eating) I missed the setup, but I caught the last 2. I didn't think the computer would be $1318 so I was going for the drum set.  :-o

Dice Game: I was worried over that last number. Luckilly Nellena won.

Freeze Frame: Maybe my brain went to a commercial break early again, but that $3611 looked mighty good to me at the time.

Last Commercial Break: "You maaaade me love youuuuuuuuuu" :hammer:  :pint:

Showcases: Great, the first time I decide to be more generous with bidding on a FRTS, and I go OVER  :roll:  *SIGH* I bid $23,000 on Nellena's showcase. For Keith's I bid $25,500. And I was suprised that both had underbid by so much, but I thought Keith had underbid less.

An OK show today, with a stand-out MK performance as the highlight.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the trip to Space Camp in Keith's showcase brought back memories of Finder's Keepers and Double Dare 15-19 years ago, both of which gave away such trips. Ahhhh, memories!

Even after the last playing, I can't believe Master Key was actually won.  That's actually two playings in a row now that an even-numbered key has opened the car.  Hell must be freezing over. (

And ya irked me that they never unlocked the trip. (

And speaking of long has it been since Master Key offered a trip, anyway?  Gotta be at least a few years.

How the heck did Gwendolyn end up losing It's in the Bag the way she did?  She almost had the third bag right, and then she just...didn't.

My God...Danger Price has actually been played 10 times this year!

Speaking of Danger Price, Keith was a fantastic contestant.

Dice Game was very suspenseful.  You knew darn well she had the thousands digit right, so the whole game really came down to the last number.

It's a real shame Matthew lost Freeze Frame, because he's one of the most self-confident contestants I've ever seen play it.

I have to admit, I was sort of disappointed that the "Spelling Bee" showcase didn't have any references to Spelling Bee.  The showcases were both good, though...even the wordplay showcase, which had a nice, unexpected touch with the explosion at the end. (

Best line of the day was when, during the Showcase Showdown, Bob asked Nellena about giving her new car to her husband and she responded, "Oh no, Tiger! He's getting the old car!"  (or something to that effect).  Has any other contestant ever had the nerve to call Bob "Tiger"??

(Please don't kill me if I didn't get the quote EXACTLY right.  The point was her calling him "Tiger", which I thought was absolutely hilarious!)

I know that Roger signals to Bob which two keys have been chosen, but I don't know exactly how the signaling works. So after the keys are chosen, then yes, Bob knows whether one of the keys is the master or the car and emcees accordingly.

I'm pretty sure Master Key had a trip to San Diego as one it's prizes late in season 33.  That's the last time I remember a trip in the game.
