Episode 2.1
January 2

The power is back on for a new year of questions and answers. At the center of it all, new "Price Is Right" host Drew Carey. On both sides, two people who could win $1000... $10,000... $100,000... $1,000,000.... or maybe... $10,000,000!

First up in the new season are Tony Mendes (Vernal, UT), a pro bull rider who's just here to support his family. On the other side, Grindl Reynolds (Atlanta) has never met a person she didn't like. She loves to listen to people.

But only one of them will get a shot at the money. Here's a refresher. Drew will read a question put to the national polling sample, and both players will have 10 seconds to lock in a choice. The closest to the actual result, over/under, will win the question. First to three will play for $10 million.

With that, let's play "Power of 10!"


1) What percentage of Americans have seen their mother naked?

Tony: 72%
Grindl: 18%
ACTUAL: 44%. Grindl leads, 1-0.

2) What percentage of Americans have illegally parked in a space reserved for handicapped parking?

Tony: 34%
Grindl: 28%
ACTUAL: 14%. Grindl leads, 2-0.

3) What percentage of American women said they prefer a man in boxer rather than briefs?

Tony: 64%
Grindl: 45%
ACTUAL: 59%. Grindl leads, 2-1.

4) What percentage of Americans have ever had to sneak out of someone's window?

Tony: 28%
Grindl: 44%

5) What percentage of Americans said if they stood up and looked straight down, they could not see their feet?

Tony: 45%
Grindl: 17%
ACTUAL: 7%. Grindl is playing for the money. 

Here to help Grindl is her friend and former business partner Mike, who's now a corrections officer.

Okay, more refreshing. Here's how you get to $10 million. Every question she answers correctly within range will increase her winnings by the power of 10, from $1000 to $10,000 to $100,000 to $1 million to $10 million. She can walk away at any time, but if she goes for it and misses, she'll lose by the power of 10 and walk out with that much. But she will have some help. She's got a 40 point range on the first question, 30 on the second, 20 on the third, 10 on the fourth, and one more game for $10 mill. Also, the audience will be playing along with Grindl so we get to hear what they think. ALSO Mike will be available to give his insight.

But the moment Grindl "locks it in", the answer is final and binding.

Let's play!

What percentage of Americans said if a person was paying with food stamps and was $2 short, they'd pay the difference?

Tracy starts with 35-75.

The audience... is of no help. It peaks at 70, but they were all over the place. Paul is quick to say that this actually happened.

America said... 70%! She's up to $1000, and we're up to this...

30 point range

Tracy would personally shoot out his kneecaps. Paul's giving the thumbs down. She guesses 32-52.

Personally, Tracy thinks it's higher. Paul says don't do it. She locks in a guess of 56-76%.

America said... 57%! Paul was right, but Tracy's got $100,000! "Tracy! Tracy! Tracy!" Last time this happened, Jamie Sadler walked away a millionaire.

10 point range
