TPiRecap: 13 December 2013 (Bob Barker's Birthday Pet Adoption Week #5)

After yesterday's birthday blowout, today's show already feels like an anticlimax before George Gray even starts the intro. But, let's see what the last day of our celebratory week will bring us...

Haven't seen a bailout in this game in a while, but then, it's also been a while since I saw a three-card game like this too. Totally did the smart thing.

Of course, a win always helps, even when doing the layouts for it is a bit of a bear!

Lawrence brings out our fifth and final Very Special Guest for this Pet Adoption Week: Say hello to... oh, they had to do this sooner or later, didn't they? His name is Bob, and despite being a prime example of canis familiaris, George assures us "he's not a 'barker' at all," he's actually pretty quite for a dog his size. At any rate, the four-legged Bob comes to us from the SPCA of Los Angeles, and if you can't adopt him (because you don't live in LA), you know the drill... lots of lovely animals like Bob can be found at a shelter or SPCA chapter near you, and they all need a loving home.


I really have to take my hats off to Price for reviving this tradition, even if just for one week. I always loved it when they'd do this.

Rationale: HDTVs usually end in either -99 or -00. Sets of three similar prizes, such as three kitchen appliances or (as in this case) three pieces of exercise equipment, more often than not tend to end in -7 when totaled. Thus, the best solution here would have been to look for any prices that ended in -7 or -6, as indeed was the case this time.
