The Space Bag Episode
« on: September 15, 2008, 01:51:30 PM »
First, the Space Bag shows up in Grand Game, then it appears as a giveaway to the contestant who wins the next IUFB. When was the last time they had the same product twice in one show?
BTW, I've seen the exact same thing happen when I play BigJon's PC game!

What the hell's that got to do with anything?

And what about that? Jeez, he was just explaining that he has seen it happen before in BigJon's game.

Signatures are overrated.

Exactly. One of those examples I've seen is when a particular prize appears as an SP in a pricing game like Punch-a-Bunch or Shell Game, and then reappears in one of the Showcases. Another one is when two cars of the exact make and model appear at different times in the same episode.

Steve was just trying to point out that the "Big Jon comment" really didn't have much to do with the real show, which was presumably what was asked about in the original post.

I guess I'm just puzzled as to why we're supposed to care.

That occuring in BigJon's game isn't really noteworthy at all.  I'm also a bit puzzled by your mentioning of those incidents, Teddy.

For example, in the first episode in this recap by CCYoshi, a bottle of 4-oz. Aftershave appears in Punch-a-Bunch (it turns out to be $36), and it appears again in one of the Showcases. So this is not exactly rare to have the same prize appear twice. Hope this explains it better.

Teddy, I think what everyone wonders is why it matters what shows up in a "Big Jon" episode. Your original question about whether a prize/product appeared twice on the same show was accompanied by a Barker episode clip, yet you keep mentioning only what happens on "Big Jon" episodes.

Well, my original question "When was the last time..." referred to the Barker/Carey episodes of the show. The BigJon comments were just an afterthought. Just to clear all this up, I'll go on the record by saying that all I wanted to know is when was the last time one product appeared multiple times on a real-life episode.
