Teresa, come on down!

Teresa- 375
Michelle- 315
Elisa- 410
William- 100

ARP: $389

Teresa will play HURDLES to win a Caribbean Cruise worth $1,502.
Oh gosh....The centerpiece of Hurdles was a large game board featuring a hurdler on a race track. The contestant was shown a grocery item and its price, which were displayed next to the hurdler; as such, this price was called the "hurdler's price", and denoted the price over which the contestant could jump. The contestant was then shown three pairs of grocery items at the base of the board, one at a time. Each pair represented a hurdle and consisted of one item that was priced below the hurdler's price and one that was priced above it. The contestant was asked to pick the item of each pair which was below the hurdler's price, which would allow him to clear all three hurdles; flags were placed to mark the three selected items. After all three pairs were played, the hurdler starts across the game board. At each pair of grocery items, the hurdle representing the chosen item would rise into the path of the hurdler. If the correct item were chosen, it would stop below his path and reveal the price; if the wrong item was chosen, it would block him, causing the hurdler to crash and the game to end in a loss. If the hurdler cleared all three hurdles, the contestant won the prize.

Today's Hurdler is Libby's Fruit Cocktail priced at $0.70.

The items that Teresa chooses has to be lower than the Hurdler for her to win.

ITEMS 1: Shedd's Old Fashioned Peanut Butter and Lea & Perrins Worchestershire Sauce.
Of these two items, which one is below the Hurdler Price?
Teresa says the Worchestershire Sauce which gets a Marker.

ITEMS 2: TV Time Popcorn and Knott's Berry Farm Strawberry Preserves.
Which one is below the Hurdler Price?
Teresa says the Popcorn which gets a Marker.

ITEMS 3: Kraft Cream Dip and Borateem Detergent.
Which one is below the Hurdler Price?
Teresa says the Detergent (much to the dismay of the audience) which gets a Marker.

Time for the big race! On your mark, get set, GO!
The Hurdler comes up to HURDLE 1: $0.43!
Now on to HURDLE 2: $0.53!
Now on to that last HURDLE 3: $0.95- LOSS!!!
