They are now saying Garrett's suspension is indefinite. And he will be fined.

Well, yeah, but people generally don't do that. After all, "one card is as good as any other, so why bother to go allllll the way over there for something when the same exact thing is available right in front of me?"

I really think people overthink things.  There’s nothing stopping the contestant from walking over to an out of reach card and grabbing it, right?  No physical barrier, and no one telling them “these cards over here - you.... you just can’t have them”

And that did once in the 70's with the $30 vs. $29 situation, would that have been the only time? I'm tending to assume so.....but probably wrong lol.

This wasn’t a DSW but I recall an episode from the eighties where the first contestants difference was only about $300 or so, leaving me to think the second contestant was even closer, however the second contestant missed by a few thousand

How is Drew "informed" which showcase price to reveal first?   Obviously the producers have him go in the order that will cause the most drama (when possible), but how is he told?  He acts like he looks at something on the podiums.
IIRC, Drew goes backstage during that commercial break. I'm sure he is told who to start with there.

I'll assume it still works this way...

Along with Drew and a producer, one of the people backstage who is learning which price to reveal first is the person who holds the cue cards so Drew can remember what each showcase was ("You had a year's supply of coffee, a trip to Kona, and a Hyundai Kona"). As the show comes out of commercial, that person holds up the card with the first showcase whose price should be revealed, and at the top of the card is the generic identifier that's on the showcase displays (HAWAII/SUV). Drew is looking at the showcase display to make sure he's at the one that matches the cue card that matches the first price to reveal.

Disgusting spectacle. That gives the entire sport a bad name. Take your win with dignity.

And now, the spinning starts with pathfinder20.

(wheel beeps)

The first spin of the first Showcase Showdown is on its way, and it looks like it will come to a stop on...



...30 cents, and I'm going to bet you would like to spin again.

PATHFINDER20: Yes, please.

(wheel beeps)

See, I too would spin again on 30. If you get 70 or less, you're in business. I don't think you're going to get 70, and you can't use 90 either.



MRRRRRRRRP!

I hope you had fun anyway, and thanks for being here. Now Clara26 will spin.

(wheel beeps)

Hopefully you will get a good score. And in your first spin, I see a good score for you...



...and there it is, 90 cents. What do you think?

CLARA26: I'm going to stay.

Take your place under the scoreboard.



DING!

And now, JayC will try to beat 90 cents.

(wheel beeps)

Either 95 or a dollar will get you in the Showcase, and in your first spin, you're going to get...



...20 cents, so you will spin again.

(wheel beeps)

So now you need 75 or 80 to win, and 70 to tie. 70 to 80 would be great, and you might get the tiebreaker here...



...but you were one space too short on that one. You already won $150,000 in Rat Race, so it was a pretty good day for you.

(Dig We Must 2007)

Congratulations, Clara26, you're going to the Showcase! We'll see you again later on in the show. There's more Price is Right coming up, and when we come back, we'll give one lucky contestant a chance to play for a million dollars. You don't want to miss this!
