TPiRecap: 2 April 2014


A return to normalcy today...

But first, check out this video posted by none other than Wink Martindale, which shows off the infamous and short-lived Shower Game. This rarity has not been seen in almost four decades, outside of a few screengrabs previously available only to Golden-Road.net members (in their Golden Gallery).

(Now all we need is for Telephone Game and Finish Line to get out to the general public...)

Range Game for a car:
2014 Toyota Camry LE (2.5L, 6AT, rear bumper appliqué, carpet/trunk mat set; RR)

The question is, what game are they playing? Highball, lowball, or right in the center?
Answers that question. Way higher than most contestants would ever dream of stopping it, even when it's played for a car.

The lowball bids are understandable, but frustrating. These are seriously high-end chefs' knives here, professional tools to say the least... why must everyone think the show goes for the Walmart specials when it comes to these things?

Bullseye:
The GE Triangle of Terror & maid service for 1 year (12 visits; $9,182; MA)

  • C&H sugar cubes (I guess the horse from yesterday left his lunchbox behind...)
  • General Mills Fiber One cereal
  • Bush's baked beans (16oz)
  • Jimmy Dean Heat 'N Serve sausage links
  • Act Kids anticavity rinse

SORRY
LOSS

Small consolation: It wasn't either of the other ones she picked, either. The Bullseye was behind the Act.

A rare loss for Bullseye.
