I personally don't think they should. I think that was just an unnecessary gimmick. Who wants to be buried in popcorn/grass clippings/shredded paper/M&M's?

i agree, if i wanted messed up like that, i'd have signed up for Family Double Dare

CSS -- Chatroom Showcase Showoff / CSS Results for 03/15/2019 (Game 112)

Thanks to the mixed up order, we saw the Hamptons for the 3rd time in 6 shows today. This time it was a bit cheaper, leading to a bunch of WSDs. Only priac DSW'd and picks up the win and cash. Meanwhile this Quebec was seen once before, in a Range where it was more than 2k/night. Few did not garf this, Kev easily has best raw and cash from 2nd place.

Any thoughts on whether or not they should keep the Double Whammies from the 2002 Whammy? I think they should. It was fun watching those poor people getting a bucket full of *insert item here*.

Yes: I think they should just stick with traditional Whammies (including a less CGI look than we got with the 2002 version). I personally wouldn't want my nice dress clothes to get messed up by having things dropped on me from the ceiling, especially if I was losing a huge amount of money and/or first place at the same time. I'd also like the host to simply say "stop at a Whammy" instead of leading into the animation the way Todd did (i.e. "Stop at a swingin' Whammy" for the Tarzan one). As likable as Todd was, it was a blatant attempt (at least to me) for the show to go for the cheap laugh.

That, the oval-shaped board, and the contestant island that only spun 90 degrees instead of the traditional 180, are things I'd be content to leave as GSN exclusives. (Forgive me for saying this but I'd also like to see a set design less ultra-modern and more respectful of the good old days, similar to the Game Show Marathon one.)

Price is Right Recaps! / Re: TPiR Recap - 3/15/2019

SC1 comes out to 5388/3000/18100. During the show, I used the ARP of the Corolla to figure out the Hamptons trip from Wednesday. That came out to 5388, so it was very fresh in my mind during the Showcase round. Obviously, the 3000 was 3000, and I priced the boat at 16,500, which is low. However, I did nail the last two digits of that showcase.

Did not think the second showcase was going to be that expensive. I had come up with 30000 roughly, and that seemed too much to me, so I cut back, and some how nailed the last two digits again, simply by sheer luck.

PTB had another wipeout on January 16th.

Bonkers had 7/16 possible combinations tried, but most of the guesses weren't that great.

As I understand it, sometime after I left, Fremantle switched to doing prizing for TPIR in-house, so I'm not sure exactly who you should contact.

According to Fremantle's website, the phone number for their Los Angeles headquarters is 818-748-1100. I would recommend calling that headquarters, explain that you're interested in providing a prize on The Price Is Right, and they should be able to tell you how to get in touch with the TPIR prize department. One of the TPIR staff members there will then be able to give you the details of what sponsorship entails.

Try calling them at 1-800-852-8909. (Source: http://www.priceisright.com/contact-us/ .) I don't know about the commitment needed--please let us know what you find out as we'd be interested to hear!

The TALK Is Right / Sponsoring a prize on the show
« Last post by jeeprory on March 15, 2019, 04:48:43 PM »
Does anyone know how to go about sponsoring/donating a prize on the show?  My partner and I run a small business and were thinking that providing a prize might be a good avenue for a little exposure (and really cool for us too!).   If we were to give a package worth, say $750, as an IUFB or whatever would that be the only commitment, or would they also look for cash sponsorship?
 
 
No luck finding anything on Google or TPIR's website that I can find.

Any ideas or experience on this?
