AW, you meanie, leaving things up to essentially a 50-50 instead of letting us guarantee our way to ruin the budget.  :P

*peanut gallery*

Higher, and then lower!

The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

Soap that looks like food is one of those ideas that seems like it really shouldn't exist. I'll say that the pain relief is more expensive than the tasty looking soap.

Also, I know you didn't specifically ask but if the pain relief is $9+, I'll say the candy is lower. Actually scratch that, even if my first decision is somehow wrong, I'll say the candy is lower.

He says the pain pen is more expensive than the soap, and he is...



*DING!*

...right, and that gives him two rolls! Now, Numbers, I'll give you another roll if you can--oh, he wants lower! I don't even have to ask, he knows the candy is less expensive, and he is...



...right again! Numbers has three rolls in tow! He has the best chance possible chance of winning a car, and here he goes heading up those stairs. Take the whole bucket, dump its contents down the ramp, and Let 'Em Roll!

[Numbers, before the show we randomly assigned each die face to a letter A, B, C, D, E, or F. Give me five letters A-F, repeats allowed.]

And you have...



...well, no car just yet. But you have one car and $500, $1,000, $2,000, $3,000 bucks.

Now, we'll freeze the one car you have. You have two rolls remaining, and you're free to roll again if you like. But I'll let you keep the $3,000 if you give up the car and stop rolling right now. What do you say?

[If you decide to roll on, give me four more letters A-F]

And as the dice tumble down, you're going to end up with...



*DING! DING!*

Two more car symbols! All right, 123, last chance! You can take $2,000 to quit right now or roll the dice one final time, what'll it be?

[Again, two letters A-F if you continue]

He's not quitting! He's going for the car! All we need are two more car symbols. Audience, we need your energy! We want a car! We want a car! Send your good vibes!

For all the marbles, Numbers, get two more car symbols! Roll those dice!



Well, the bad news is, no car. The good news? You're leaving here $1,500 richer. And do I detect a sigh of relief from those in Contestant's Row?

We'll be back with more Price is Right following this announcement!

AnnouncerTron, as I was saying before the break those three in Contestant's Row looked to be quite happy when 123 won that $1,500. How nice it is to see our contestants are willing cheer on each other, no matter what they win!

Who do you have in the audience that can match that comradery? Do you know of anyone?

Sure do! geniusinmath, COME ON DOWN! You are the next contestant on The Price is Right!

geniusinmath, welcome to Contestant's Row! Welcome to the row of brotherly love! We've got another prize for you to bid on, and here it is!

It's a cutting-edge pellet grill!



The Traeger Timberline 850! Controllable via Wi-Fi, this pellet grill smokes food slowly but burns hot enough to sear food quickly, even in the dead of winter, and featuring three racks and enough space to grill nine chickens at a time! Prove to your neighbors that you're serious about your BBQ and your freezer full of meat wasn't just a vanity purchase!

And genius, at the yellow podium, the first bid goes to you!
