Title: The Price is Right: 123123123 style (S2, Episode 5)
Post by: 123123123 on March 01, 2021, 10:03:11 AM
Hello everybody, its been a while, but yours truly is back to host another episode of TPiR!!

This show will consists of 4 pricing games and a gift exchange to detemine who gets a crack at the big showcase!

The perfect format, courtesy of TPIRfan#9821, for when you have enough material, but not enough patience for a full show  :-)

There might not be a overarching theme to this show as some of my previous ones, but as always there will be plenty of hidden jokes and laughs to be had.

In case anyone has forgotten, here are the rules

*Sign-ups will last for 72 hours (so it will start 3/4 around 5pm)
*Contestants will get a PM from me when they are called down or up on stage
*You will have 24 hours to submit your response
*The audience is allowed, even expected to help
*Above all else, have fun and relax

*Finally, to win a spot in the First Four, we've got a quick 30 second interview just like our parent source.
In 13 words or less (not including the obligatory "I'm in"), let me know the first place you'd want to visit once traveling isnt forbiddden anymore. Get creative, but remember I'm counting.  :-)

And with that, come one and all, join in the fun!

Normally, I would push back the start a day to let more people join, but since I can't start it tomorrow.....screw it, we'll do it live! We'll see how it goes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(camera pans over whole crowd}

{"Rasputin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nl_Eo2QzqU4)" starts blaring from the speakers}



Announcer: JhayPrice, come on out!!!


LiteBulb88, come on out!!!


JayC, come on out!!!


pathfinder20, come on out!!!


and geniusinmath, come on out!!!


You are the first four only five contestants on the Price is Right!!!



{loud cheering from video screen behind players}


And now your host, fully thawed out right before today's taping, 123123123!!!

{walks out of door 2}

1233: Hello everyone, it great to be back to host another episode of the Price is Right!!
Things have definitely changed around here, first we have a five person row for possibly the first time ever. Plus we have a virtual crowd helping and cheering our contestants on today.


...


Saying that out loud actually makes me feel like not too much has changed, here at least  :-)

Now for one thing that hasn't changed, Mr. Announcer, please let me know what the first item up for bids is today on the Price is Right!!

{GPT rises}

Announcer: First off today, we have a home office setup! {modeled by Rachel}

(https://i.imgur.com/C8joeyr.png)

This 55 inch wooden desk has a minimalist feel to it and instantly turns any corner of your home into the perfect spot to either promote productivity or procrastinate professionally. We've also included this desktop assistant and ergonomic swivel chair to assist you while you get stuff done, definitely not to distract you further from your tasks.


{canned applause}

1233: Working at home is very en vogue right now for some reason. Now that desk will go to the one of you closest to the actual price without going over. Let's start with geniusinmath.

I talked to the producer (aka myself) and it's all good, just join the rest of the group backstage. I have a feeling you'll be called up pretty soon  :-)

1233: The bids are in and the actual price is...


(https://i.imgur.com/5MdE3al.png)

...so come on up, LiteBulb88!!!!

{loud cheers from speakers}
{walks up to turntable}


Welcome to the stage, LiteBulb. As the first person up, we certainly have to have something great for you to win, isn't that right, Mr. Announcer?

Announcer: Honestly, we had a great prize for you. But I took the executive decision to swap it out after the atrocity that was that first item up for bids

Is he back in kindergarten? Do they get a juice box and crayons with the desk too!?!

He needs a much better setup than that, and that's what I intend to do with...


{door 3 opens}


...this executive desk!! {modeled by Amber}

(https://i.imgur.com/TOjczk0.png)

Be the boss you are with this setup! This 72" wide and 79" high U-shaped executive desk has expert construction, a cherry wood finish and plenty of storage space for all your executive-y needs. We've also included a 13" MacBook Air and abrown leather bonded swivel chair to make you feel in charge. There it is, Numbers!!!



{loud cheers}


(https://i.imgur.com/k15mZzQ.png)

1233: Can't argue that that's a much better setup, whether it fits into your room is another matter  :-)

Now, to upgrade your office, all you have to do is win the Check Game. I just need you to write a check that, when added to the value of the desk, totals between $8,000 and $9,000.

So take that feathery magic marker masquerading as a quill pen and write yourself a check!

{check writing music commences}

If I win this, I'll use my one bid prize as the kiddie table at my next Thanksgiving :-D. I'll write the check for $2,000 (Two thousand and 00/100 dollars) please!

1233: Hopefully the kids would love it and not make a total mess of it :-)

(https://i.imgur.com/e56XlYn.png)

{ding}

Up on the board goes $2,000.

Now for the moment of truth, will the kids table dream become a reality, or is it the kids corner for you?

How much is that desk?

Wow, we definitely weren't kidding when we said it was a desk upgrade. I hope you still enjoy your little person desk though.

Mr. Announcer, let's get another player down in the Row immediately.

{Mr. Announcer looks down at empty contestant sheet}

Announcer: Umm, Numbers? I think that we might be out of...



{gamesurf suddenly runs into the studio, stands behind the green podium}



...absolutely nothing! Forget everything I was saying before.


{puzzled look on 123's face}

1233: Stop acting weird, and give these lovely contestants something to bid on.

{turntable turns}

Announcer: Don't know about the weird part, but the prize can be arranged. Have a look at this comfortable throne chair. {modeled by Rachel}

(https://i.imgur.com/3cjD17O.png)

This upholstered 6' tall majestic throne chair is constructed of high grade metal with a gold finish has a majestic flair to it and is perfect for anyone trying to get into that caged bird state of mind!!!

Great news for pathfinder20!!! Come on over!

{cheers from other players}


I'm glad that you found your way up here when you did, because we have something wonderful for you.

Tell them the great news, Mr. Announcer!

Announcer: All I have to say is you have a chance to win...


{screen flashes behind contestants' row}

(https://i.imgur.com/4wiIPcN.png)


...up to $20,000 playing Hot Seat!!!


(https://i.imgur.com/1R4fvgq.png)

{cheers and applause}

1233: Yes, there is cold hard cash to be had, if you know something about the products in the game today. Please take a seat in our completely heat free chair.

{sits down}

In a moment, you'll have to tell us whether the actual price of these products are more or less than what we are showing you, all while being dragged along at a speed somewhere between speedy centipede and grandma on the freeway. If you can do that successfully, lots of money could be coming your way

Let's hear about the products in the game today, shall we? Mr. Announcer?

(https://i.imgur.com/KF0yemi.png)

Announcer: First, we have these thermal gloves that allow you to continue to use your touchsceen in the cold.

Next, we have these fashionable plaid Italian logger ice skates that will have you the talk fo the ice rink.

Then, we have this frozen yogurt maker that can make treats in a little as 20 minutes and can hold up to 1.5 quarts of ice cream.

We also have is 3 person inflatable sled fitted with molded PVC handles if you're worried about safety while sledding

Finally, we have a 12 oz lime green stainless steel thermos that come with a flip up carrying loop.


{applause}

(https://i.imgur.com/EoSIthV.png)

1233: OK, now let's start moving you down the line. Just tell us whether the actual price is more or less than what you see

Now, for $500, is that yogurt maker less than $90?

(https://i.imgur.com/wMdU03G.png)

Of course it is, the easiest $500 you've ever made hopefully.

{rolls in front of thermos}

Now you said that the thermos is less than $25. Are you willing to risk your $500 for a chance at 5 times that much?

(https://i.imgur.com/qMofHik.png)

$2,500 in your hand! Definitely can't complain, but why stop there?

I will gladly double it if you are sure that the sled is more than $70. How do you feel about this one, pathfinder?

3 for 3 so far! I get that we are only showing the right ones so far, but still 3 for 3.   

{rolls in front of skates}

Now this is a big one, to get into the five digits and win $10,000. How confident are you that those skates are less than $130, more specifically, are you confident enough to put a 5k bet down on it?

Man, this is one suspenseful game  :lol:

{canned cheers as chair rolls back to start}
{TPIRfan#9821 sneaks in, stands at blue podium}



But now, I guess we have to find out if you made the right decision. We simply can't let a good thing be. How much were those skates?















(https://i.imgur.com/elt0gRJ.png)

{a few canned groans}

Uh oh, please tell me the gloves weren't more than $20.











(https://i.imgur.com/q5EewWo.png)

Whew. Who knows, getting the skates might have tempted you to go for the gloves incorrectly.

But enough about the hypotheticals, you have $5,000 and are in a great spot for the gift exchange coming up!

We will hopefully have more winning after this break!!

{commercial lead-in music}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

{after several car commercials, camera pans over full Contestants' Row}

1233: Mr. Announcer, you must be running the hurry-up offense, you got us a full complement of contestants without me even noticing. Let them hear about the item they'll be bidding on.

Announcer: What the..? Ok, either the illuminating illusion this dark void of a studio you've trapped us in is starting to fade back to reality before my eyes...or we need to learn to lock doors around here. Either is feasible at this point.

1233: Ahem...


Announcer: Oh, of course, the prize! The prize for you all to bid on is this generator!!! {modeled by Amber}

{door 3 opens}

This 9,200 watt electric start generator can be run on gasoline or propane, can run for 10 hours at half capacity and is fitted with tires that will never go flat, trust me when I say attempts were made. There you go, 123!!!

Welcome up to the stage! Now I sure we have something great for you to win. Lay it on us, Mr. Announcer!

Announcer: We might be a few months late with this, but you'll find a use for your...

Stay safe and enjoy the solitary life in style! This large 13' by 13' square outdoor gazebo makes for the perfect getaway from your troubles. Constructed of sturdy, solid wood, this bunker is spacious enough for all your lockdown luxuries, such as a spa (not included), outdoor seating (not included ), various yard games (not included) and much, much more (not included)!!!

Evenmore, we have included this 75" curved smart UHD TV and a sound bar so you can put your brand new generator to use right away! There they are, 123123123!

1233: Summer's coming up soon, and that would be a dandy of a prize for it.

Now to win Squeeze Play, all you have to do is find the imposter among us.

The 1 is definitely safe, and so is the 2. But one of these other numbers has to be ejected out and into space, never to return this convenient little number holder on the side of the game.

So, who are you voting out, geniusinmath?

For your bidding pleasure is this crystal sculpture!! {modeled by Rachel}

Wow, you really guilt-tripped the rest of the row there.

Now that you've finally made it up here, let's make it worth your while with these prizes!

Announcer: First, we have this car ornament and cool backpack!! {modeled by Amber}

First, this Mercedes-Benz car ornament can be mounted to the front of any car with enough duct tape. And then, this branded Mercedes-Benz backpack will have you be the talk of town!

And finally, since Mercedes decided to not sponsor us any further, we decided to get you...

{door 3 opens}

Anyways, I'm going to give you 10 Chances to win the cheap Mercedes stuff and that not-so-cheap Lexus.

...holy cow the guilt tripping worked!

Let's see here... for the ornament I'll go $50, then $20, then I'll be disappointed if both of those are wrong, and then go $52, then $25 (then $05 and $02, but if it's $5 I'll eat my hat).

You really made quick work of those first two, or maybe the producers really wanted you to get to the car.

Either way, with six chances left, use all those numbers to give me the price of that luxorious Lexus sitting over there.

So, the true 50-50 here is if I go with a $30k car or a $50k car.

I'll start out with the four most expensive $30k car options, and I'll deal with the possibility of a $50k car later. But my first four guesses are $37590, $37950, $39570, and $39750.

{cheers from backstage}

Now, it's the moment we have been waiting for, the fabulous Showcases!!!

Take it away, Mr. Announcer!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Announcer: It's time to do an epic Powerpoint slideshow of "The Numbers Story: A Positive Reflection of the Past 12 Months". While it definitely hasn't been great, it's time to look at the good things that've happened since this studio was occupied last spring and narrated by yours truly! As always, there is absolutely no exaggeration or bull-honky to be found here :-)

{slide on door 4 changes, revealing our host sitting on a couch staring at an iPad}

The titular character 12 months ago was in the same situation as most of the world, locked away and longing for interaction. Other than family, the only escape was in television. That would explain why he (and now you  :-)) would be getting a Hulu +Live TV subscription for 2 whole years!!

(https://i.imgur.com/tXlHwQo.png)

{applause}
{next slide, with host furiously google searching doomsday info}


As the days inside grew, our hosts sanity started to head south. The lowest point for them was probably when they were a single click away from order some less than necessary equipment. Fortunately, we made sure we followed through and got you this...

{door 2 opens}

...actual shelter house!!! {modeled by Rachel}

(https://i.imgur.com/nivE302.png)

This 20' domed shelter house has a 40+ year lifespan, 312 sq. ft of living space and is somehow more spacious than my own apartment!!

{cheers}
{next slide, with host sweating bullets, knelt over and struggling to catch their breath}


After somehow watching everything worthwhile within 3 weeks, your host was determined to be productive in some capacity, so what better than getting outside and work your endurance with some running around the neighborhood? As you can see from the pic, they probably wish they had chose an easier path of productivity. I can't guarantee you won't be sweating, but I'll guarantee you'll look good doing it with...

{turntable turns}

...all these athletic goodies!!! {modeled by Amber}

(https://i.imgur.com/OclNz00.png)

First, we have this pair of waterproof trail running shoes that are also suitable for non-trail runs. Next, this 9 speed electric bike comes equipped with a 750 watt ultra-drive motor to keep you from actually pedaling. Finally, this fancy elliptical has a large 14" touchscreen, automatic trainer control and adjustable stride length!!!

{more applause}
{next slide, with host asleep with head on piano keys}


Soon, 123123123 was dabbling in things he didn't even know were interesting to him. They found a way to fix up their ancient piano keyboard and slowly spent long nights trying to learn some songs, to very minimal success...

{next slide, with host joyfully walking and playing the harmonica}

...but much more joy while learning the harmonica. Now we will give you a chance to see which one you like more by giving you both a keyboard and some harmonicas!! {modeled by Manuela}

{GPT rises}

(https://i.imgur.com/DQ0ex5n.png)

First, this digital ensemble baby grand piano has 88 keys and is in a appropriate polished black finish. Also, this set of 7 blues style harmonicas sound great and stainless steel chrome covers!

{applause}
{next slide, with host in laboratory, clumsily holding test tubes}


Finally, the freedom of being able to go back to work in the lab had never been so anticipated. The smell of heptane and acetone in the morning is always welcomed. Luckily enough, we were able to find a way to bring in a new instrument. And soon, you'll also have your own new instrument in...

{door 1 opens}

...this glass reactor!!! {modeled by Rachel}

(https://i.imgur.com/HXScO5Z.png)

This 100 L single jacketed glass reactor is perfect for all of your household polymerization needs and includes a feeding funnel, central stirrer and temperature probe!!!

{applause}
{next slide, with host stranded on side of freeway with smoking car}


Now, slowly things have been improving, but our host's old beater of a car that was older than him, finally made its way to the pearly junkyard in the sky. While I cerainly couldn''t get a brand new car, I'm sure you'll enjoy the new version of the car our host ended up getting...

{car rolled out Lucky-Seven style}

...a brand-new HR-V!!! {modeled by Manuela}

(https://i.imgur.com/4t4ZBLc.png)

This 2021 Honda HR-V AWD LX comes with all the standard equipment, plus all season protection and fashion packages!!!

{loud cheers and applause}
{next slide, with host dreaming of future summer}


Finally, with us seemingly past the year that was 2020, it's now time to simply look forward to all the possibilities of things we can do again this summer. Our host for one, can't wait to have cookouts again, so that's why we are handing you...

{door 3 opens}

...this hibachi grill!!! {modeled by Amber}

(https://i.imgur.com/EvScd7T.png)

This cast iron hibachi grill has enough space to make 15 burgers at once, runs on liquid propane and comes with folding tables to allow for eating right next to the heat!!!

{loud cheers}

Now, while there might have been some undortunate events from the last year, it was nice to look at the good. And all this good can be yours if the Price is Right!!!!!
