Jared showed that winning
on Wednesday was no fluke on yesterday's show. Can he
pull the hat trick today?
Jared starts with $200 Film & TV Spaceships, tying Alex at the
TV time out with $2800 to Angel's $600.
Alex finds the Daily Double under $1000
"B" Writers. He bets $1200 on this: in 1958 he moved to
Paris & met fellow Irish writer James Joyce, with whom
he formed a lasting friendship. "Who is
Bennett?" It was Samuel Beckett. He drops to $2600,
where he'll end the round. Jared slips back in to the
lead with $5200 with Angel at $3600. Looks like Alex
will get the first go in Double Jeopardy!...
with $400 the Eurovision Song Contest, finding the first
Daily Double under $1600. He goes $2500 on
this: though she's from Quebec, she won the contest in
1988 for Switzerland with "Ne Partez Pas sans Moi". "Who
is Dion?" "Don't Leave Without Me" was the song,
and Celine Dion was the singer for $5500. Jared finds the other
under $1600 Groups. In a distant third, he bets $3599 on this:
infant, schoolboy, lover, soldier, the justice, the
pantaloon, second childishness. "What are
stages of development?" More specific, they're
Shakespeare's Seven Stages of Man, leaving him with a
dollar. Alex has $11,100 against Angel's $8800.
Final Jeopardy! in Americana: the original one of
these on Mass.'s Little Brewster Island was built in
1716; automation didn't come until 1998. Correct response: What is
Jared's response: "What is Kebert Xela?" ... Contrary to
the Family Guy episode, Alex remains in OUR dimension.
Alex wins this with $18,100. Jared disappears with

Price is Right by Chico Alexander, GSNN
Air time: 11a ET/10a CT on CBS
Host: Bob Barker
For many a loyal friend
and true worldwide, this is it. June 15, 2007. After
35 years and 6586 shows, the time has come for Bob
Barker to step down as host of America's
longest-continuously running game show. This will go
down, win or loss, as history in the making. And you
have a front-row seat (unless you're Joe Van Ginkel,
in which you have a seat about two or three rows in...
love ya, mean it), so settle in and enjoy...
Francisco Velasco, Kristen Bogle, Philip Barrett
(who's been in line five days), and Denise Leveque
have the best seats in the house, as they bid on an
HDTV, showing Bob's first entry from 1972. Actual
retail price: $2799. Winner... Denise! She's excited
to play for a Chevrolet Corvette. The game is Lucky
Seven. First number... 4. That's right. $40,000+.
Denise's first guess is 4... 5. That's a dollar.
Denise's next guess is 6... Right on. Next up... 3? 7.
That'll cost $4. She can only miss this last number by
one either way. Denise goes with a 6... 5! That
$45,675 whip set is HERS!
Next up, a $1499 necklace. It looks lovely on Gaby.
It'll look even lovelier on Kristen. But that's
nothing compared to $50,000 Plinko! Given chips from
Bob, a $20 pool lounge. a $35 chocolate mill, a $28
iKitty, and a $33 candy dispenser, she wins $1500.
Round 3, a stairstepper. $2699. Francisco's. We've
given a car, we've given money. Francisco gets a shot
at... a ski boat! The Range Game is on tap. Francisco
stops it at $19,650. The price... $19,670! That's
Both Denise & Kristen get another spin to settle
things in the first Showcase Showdown. Kristen gets
40. Denise... A dollar! Bonus spin... no more money,
but she does have $1000.
Starting the second half with a CD jukebox. Dean
Lindstrom, who fell on down, wins the $2495 prize. Can
Dean win a Chrysler 300? It's either $29,560 or
$24,041? Dean goes with $29,560... Dean smacks it...
Someone's going home with a $3149 motorcycle. It's
Melva Cranston, who gets to play for a camping trailer
worth $11,880. Let's go Grocery shopping for Snorestop,
Zout stain remover, Nasoclear, Soft Scrub cleaner, and
Dial body wash. One Snorestop is $12.99. Two Dials...
$5.99 each one. $24.97 is the final total. D'oh!
Yeah, give it up for Confetti Man...
Philip gets one AND ONLY ONE more chance for some
more face time with Bob (he was on the local news
apparently) with a sofa. Price: $1545. Winner...
PHILIP! He's finally done it! After a five-day wait,
he gets to play for board games... or a Ford
Explorer... or a piece of Bob's pension. A small
piece, mind you. First number of the car... 2. The
7... Piggy bank. The 6... Car. The 1... Piggy bank.
The 5... Car! The 2... Board games. The 0... Car! The
3... and Philip wins $7.31. The car was $26,850. No
four wheeler for Philip, but he only needs one wheel
to get to the Showcase.
Denise plays the blue as topper. Philip plays the
manly pink as the runner. First Showcase has fun with
"Saint"... a trip to St. Maarten, a trip to see St.
Patrick's burial in Ireland, and a chance to be a
saint in a Lincoln Navigator. Denise does the nice
thing and passes. Philip bids $61,000. Denise gets to
do some waiting at the dentist's office. Denise tags a
grill, a Mediterranean cruise, and a Cadillac
convertible at $84,823. Actual price: $90,761. The
difference is $5938. Philip's Showcase is... $68,677,
a difference of $7677. Denise is the big winner
today/tonight on the show, driving home with $140,235
in prizes, including $1000 in cash!
Now some words from the WGMC...
"I want to thank you very very much for inviting me
into your homes for the last 50 years. I am deeply
grateful. And please remember... Help control the pet
population. Have your pet spayed or neutered. Goodbye,
No, Bob... Thank you. Will we see Bob Barker on The
Price is Right again next year? Stay tuned...

Wants to Be a Millionaire by Don Harpwood, GSNN

Host: Meredith Vieira
Going into today's episode, Matt Sieracki
(Pittsburgh, PA) made it to $4,000. At his
radio station, he's quite low in the
hierarchy as the overnight DJ. But when he
and a daytime guy (who is higher up in
that hierarchy) both auditioned for this
show, that daytime guy didn't even pass
the test, while Matt not only passed, but
got to this point! Nice. Anyway, the game
In his 2006 book "The Unusual Suspect,"
which Baldwin brother relates his newfound
calling to the religious life?
Matt has it narrowed down to two, but he
decides to see what the audience thinks.
68% are thinking D. He goes with that...
and it's D!
What candy brand shares its name with a
popular British game that is similar to
Matt calls his girlfriend, Kate, but she
doesn't know. She'd guess A, though. Matt
then uses the 50:50, but it removes A, as
it narrows it down to B and C. So, having
no idea, Matt walks with $8,000! The
answer, by the way, is C.
Next up is Renee Dessommes (Brooklyn, NY).
She's nervous, because she has been
waiting so long to get here. And
apparently, Renee reminds Meredith of
actress Renée Zellweger! Yeah, I can see a
bit of a resemblance there... Anyway,
Renee starts by correctly saying that
studies say 65% of people in their early
childhood have imaginary friends (from
what I heard, a number of people in the
Grateful Dead stage would likely have
something else). Renee sweeps the lower
tier, then moments later...
William Shatner portrayed an alien
overlord called "The Big Giant Head" on
what long-running TV series?
C: Mork & Mindy
D: 3rd Rock from the Sun
Renee asks the audience, and 57% say D.
She trusts them... and they're right!
Then, after using the 50:50 to get to
Although he never visited the U.S., who
wrote "Amerika," a novel about a European
living in America?
A: George Orwell
B: James Joyce
C: Franz Kafka
D: Marcel Proust
Renee calls her father, Lawrence, and he
says C, but he's unsure of it. Renee goes
with C anyway... and she gets $25,000 for
it! She gets the Switch-the-Question
lifeline, but she ends up using it right
away, leading to this...
Which of these potent potables is not one
of the 50 official flavors of Jelly Belly
A: Irish coffee
C: Strawberry daiquiri
D: Piña colada
It's a free guess. Renee is sure that it's
not C or D, and she's not sure whether to
go with A or B. She considers it for a
bit, then decides to lock in B... but it's
A! Darn. Well, at least she has $25,000!
And that will do it for this week.
