Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 12/11/2017

I never believed the patio package in Pick-a-Number would be $13K+, I thought it was $10K+

My guess for the Kia in Money game was $17,760, but it turned out not to be. Tough draw for Haley.

My bid for the Bali showcase was $24,500. I guess I didn't account for that this was for three guests, instead of one.
My bid for the Honda showcase was $30,000. I was over by $2,144.

The problem is, they do make it the right answer once (or so) a season

You Right ,  2/9/17 was the last time the "year" number was the back of the car. That was also the last Exacta to happened in this game.

I just noticed that me and AMGray both have $256. What happens if there is a tie? Just curious.

It's happened before this season. The tiebreaker is the bids for the other showcase. Since AM was about 3k more aggressive than you, he gets the cash.

If BOTH tie, well, that I have no clue.

'Easy' was SC2's theme. Yeahhh... no, SCs are rarely easy anymore when trips are impossible to price like today. We've had that New Orleans before and yet it magically dropped a thousand and change today. Bali meanwhile was new, and even for 4 people, just an insane price here. I'm impressed anyone bid over 30, never mind a three-digit difference from today's winner, CJBojangles. AMGray takes the other in a near-DSW.

Being as big a country music fan as I am, it seemed weird seeing Bill hosting a show.
In that case, I suggest you look up The Better Sex (ABC, 1977-78) and Fandango (TNN, 1983-89).

Incidentally, what were the values of those other three gifts -- the ones given back? Might make interesting conversation to see just how many ways there were to win, since G/K and Finish Line were games where you could make a mistake on one or (albeit very rarely) even two and still win.
Here's what I was able to find...

First pair:
Paint: $27 (Horse)
Dish: $19 (Finish line) (the eggcrate erroneously showed $11 for this)

Second pair:
Yogurt maker: $17 (Finish line)  (the eggcrate erroneously showed $28 at this point; should've read $36)
Clock: $25 (Horse)

Third pair:
Sealer: $26 (Finish line) (the eggcrate erroneously showed $54 at this point; should've read $62)
Decanter: $30? (Horse) (the eggcrate erroneously read $77, should've been $82, I believe)

Edit: Are images disabled here? I've got a screencap of the board at the end of the game, was going to post it. The red number next to "decanter" looked fuzzy to me, but I think it said $30, wanted to see if anyone else could get a clearer look at it.

This episode appears to confirm that in Finish Line, just like Give or Keep, the contestant won the three prizes he/she decided to "keep."

Although I seem to recall that with Wink Martindale's upload of Finish Line a while back, I guess I had suspected this to be true for Finish Line -- that the contestant won the "keep" prizes regardless of outcome.

Incidentally, what were the values of those other three gifts -- the ones given back? Might make interesting conversation to see just how many ways there were to win, since G/K and Finish Line were games where you could make a mistake on one or (albeit very rarely) even two and still win.

Just as a side note: for both Give or Keep and Finish Line, I'd have made the rule where they won all six prizes if they won the game ... the other three prizes being a bonus. I've always thought that. But that's just lil' 'ol me.

It still amazes me after all this time how many people fall for the "season #" red herring in Money Game.

The problem is, they do make it the right answer once (or so) a season, so even those who know that might hesitate not to pick it, not wanting to be the one that loses when that answer is right.

Supply of iced tea: $25
Dining set: $1,453
Paint: $27
Clock: $25
Decanter: $30
Showcase: $7,321

Total: $9,182, which matches William's display at the end of the show.
