Unfamiliar model + difficult game = disappointing start to the week.

Richard takes advantage of the fact everyone thinks smartphones really are as cheap as the providers what you to think they are, then wheels himself around the studio to arrive on stage at Door #2 for 1 Right Price: $3399
  1. HP 23" touchscreen computer (8GB RAM, touch-enabled mat, HP AIO; RR)
  2. KitchenAid French-door refrigerator (JO)

$3,399 looks expensive for a computer—even one with a touch-sensitive projection mat. Go with the fridge.

  • Sun (Tropical Clean) detergent (41 loads)
  • Trident (Tropical Fruit) sugarfree gum (3-18pc packs)

Finally, a winner! It's been a while for this game. And let's hope that glitch wasn't a sign of impending doom for the second-oldest active prop on the show... the fanrage will probably drown us all.

  1. Offhand, what is the oldest active prop on the show?

    1. Even though it was partially gutted a few years back and had its backlit graphics replaced with a plasma display, the Bonus Game board still holds that honor.

  2. Now I'm wondering what the oldest prop in use is. It's probably something painfully obvious that I can't help but keep glossing over!

    1. The oldest prop still in use is the Bonus Game board, which even though it's had its innards gutted and replaced with a plasma screen, still retains the same shell (and the same SP price-display mechanics) as its original playing from Day One.
