Path to Perfection II: 123123123's PG Gauntlet (S2, E7)
« on: September 26, 2021, 06:47:25 PM »
The results from the first PG gauntlet were less than stellar, if you were a player that is. It's now time to start the long road to redemption!

Starting this Wednesday afternoon (9/29), the Numbers studio will once again open its doors to all contestants who want to try their luck.

Just like a normal show there will be 6 pricing games, but no IUFBs and a single showcase to bid on Range Game style.

Unlike a normal show though, all contestants will play all the pricing games at the same time. If you keep winning, you keep playing for a shot at perfect show bragging rights. But the moment you lose a game, you'll be immediately escorted out of the building, deemed a poor pricer.

The show keeps going until someone makes it to the end and wins the showcase, or all players are eliminated.

My feelings remain unchanged from last show. Will it be fun? I sure hope so. Will it be easy? Not a chance, as the crew fully expects most of you to flame out before the first commercial break  :lol:

But I love being proved wrong, so come one and all and flex your pricing muscles!

Since everyone who joins will play, no need for an elaborate sign up, but please give a simple "I'm in" so I know who's a part of it

"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. 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."

1233: Welcome everyone, or welcome back I should say since I remember most of your names from last time.

Just as a refresher, the goal is to win early and win often. Keep winning and you can't go wrong.

Now since we basically broke into the studio after hours to do this, it's only fitting that we have you trying to break into the Safe Crackers safe to start the night. Mr. Announcer, open that safe so we can see the spoils within.


Announcer: OK, now everyone follow along carefully, like everything else in these shows, its an odd one. First, you have a chance to win...


{opens vault door}

...a brand new vault!!



This 6' tall maroon gun vault has a matte brown finish and has an electronic dial lock!

Now behind the left door of the gun safe we have...

{opens left door}

...$1,500 in $1 bills to make it look more impressive than normal!!

And finally behind the right door we have...

{opens right door}

...a biometric safe!!!



This biometric safe measures 15″x 11.5″ x 11.6″, crafted from rugged carbon steel and is able to store up to 20 unique fingerprints for entry!!

And this is a great prize package worth...$8,789!!!


{applause as the safe is locked up}




1233: I want to emphasize you only have to open the big safe to win everything  :-)

Now the combination of this giant safe is the same as the price of the small biometric safe. The numbers in the price are 0, 3 and 6 and the numbers do not repeat.

Now everyone, use you best judgement and tell me the right combo to get into the safe. You have about 24 hours and best of luck!

{group deep in thought}
