Bob Barker Birthday Pet Adoption Week #2

Here's the deal: As of the time I sit down to type up this recap (about 5:45 PM EST) I've been awake for almost sixty straight hours. Please forgive any typos or errors that may creep into this as a result. I'm not going to speedrun this, you'll still get my Showcase bidding and some commentary from me, but I will be keeping my extra comments to a minimum unless the situation warrants it.

And so, onward...

Only thing I knew for sure was that the 2 needed to stay exactly where it was.

Once again, all this week Price is honoring Bob Barker's 90th birthday by reviving the old tradition of featuring pets up for adoption at one of SoCal's many animal shelters. With that said, it's time to meet today's Special Guest, who actually brought her human escort to the studio: K.C., who can be found at the West Valley Shelter in Chattsworth, and who's being shown off by Brandon McMillian, "animal expert" and host of the CBS Saturday Morning series Lucky Dog.
You know the drill... even if you don't live in the Greater Los Angeles area, there are many furry friends just like K.C. at an SPCA or animal shelter near your home, just waiting for you to give them a loving home. And Brandon will be back later in the show, too!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't think this game is supposed to be as nasty as it is, and in fact much of its nastiness could be averted if they made one simple rule change: Pick the car price first, you win the car automatically (but not one penny of the ten grand). It still wouldn't be won all the time if they did that, but it might just improve its record considerably... and if nothing else, it would guarantee a player could never wipe out on the first pick.

I can't complain too much; I was wrong too, after all.

It gets awfully lonely on Leftover Island this time of year, but unfortunately Brandon may be headed there the way things are going right now. Fortunately, he's got the advantage this time. What will come of this?

  1. I think "Gas Money" is more likely to be retired rather than changing the rules to having the PINK SLIP picked first winning the car automatically (with no Gas Money).
