TPiRecap: 14 June 2013 (Father's Day Spectacular)


Delayed one day due to a misbehaving DVR, but still in plenty of time for Father's Day tomorrow... ^^;

Episode # 6935K (Father's Day Spectacular)
Airdate 14 June 2013
VTR 5 May 2013
First Four Jacques & Jarrett, John & Lisa, John & Kyle, Ross & Natalie (L-R)
Today's Models Manuela Abreález, Amber Lancaster, Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith

As is de rigeur for these specials, we've got two-person teams today, father and son/daughter. Since it's the dads who're being celebrated, I'll list them first in all cases.

Note, if you will, that neither Drew nor George are wearing ties today. It's a tieless Father's Day... get it?

Before revealing the ARP there, Drew gives a shout-out to son Connor. Nice touch.

Bargain Game:
  1. Bull 7-burner stainless steel barbecue (see below)
  2. Polaris Phoenix 200 ATV ()

And who is that modeling the barbecue? Why, it's none other than our old friend and new mommy, Rachel Reynolds, returning from maternity leave just in time for the tail end of Season 41!

As for this game... I think the ATV is the one to go with. But...

Let's find out, as Manuela hands the chips over to Carlos and Jasmine and they ascend the stairs...

How about this: James is a Repeat Offender, our first in a long while! His claim of being on the show "twenty-eight years ago" puts his appearance circa Season 13 or 14, making his name likely one of the last to be called down by the legendary Johnny O. In any event, it seems he didn't do so well -- all he won was a lamp (either an IUFB or a parting gift), which his wife threw away shortly after they were married!

Danger Price: $3618
  1. Inspire multistation home gym (GOS)
  2. Apple Mac Pro computer (27" display, 6GB RAM, 1TB HD, AIO; GOS)
  3. Golden West Billiards pool table w/accessories (RR)
  4. Danby beverage center (RR)

Just to give you an idea: When James was on the show before, Danger Price was either still using its original set (by then at the GPT) or had just adopted its current look. That's twenty-eight years, folks, for the "new" Danger Price. Is it any wonder that sometimes the prop gets a little... shall we say... tempermental?

LOSS
(Home gym: $1,749; Pool table: $2,400)

...but not as tempermental as I sometimes get when I see people forget that Apple = expensive. Bleah.

Unfortunately, the only thing the show will have to offer either Jacques or John for their Father's Day presents will be no-expenses-paid trip to Leftover Island, but there's still a chance for one of them to escape this slice of ignominy.

And thus concludes a rather less-than-spectacular Spectacular, at least as far as Pricing Games go. Only 1-5 and with a mere $19,505 won (out of over $127K on potential offer -- of course, that figure includes Plinko and its infamously unattainable top value). Not exactly a sterling record, but maybe we can still make up for it; after all, we've still the second Showdown and the Showcases to go.
