We have had four shows in Big Money
Week, and of those four shows, the big money was hit ONCE.
Certainly we can do something about that today with Travon Lewis
(who is playing in a wheelchair), Mark Contreras, Dionne Long &
Virginia Salzman kicking off the harrowing conclusion of TPIR's
Big Money Week with a trip to San Diego (3n @ the Bahia Resort
Hotel). The $2010 trip goes to Mark, who gets to play the Grand
Game for... ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS! Of course we have to set
it back to $10, though. Target: $4.50. Chef Boyardee ravioli...
$1.49 for $100. Mrs. Freshley's cupcakes... $2.99 for $1000.
Mountain High yogurt... $3.69 for $10,000! Now will he risk it on
an 8-pack of Mott's apple juice? He will.... $3.99! BINGO BANGO,
PAY! THAT MAN! HIS MONEY!
How do you follow that up, Travon? A $1570 set of sunglasses? Nice
start. A Ford Focus SE? Nice finish! It's Range Game. He has Drew
stop the rangefinder at $19,410, since he is unable to reach the
button himself. The price... $19,450! Nicely done!
Yes, Virginia, there is a $2639 dishwasher with dinnerware! Now
try for a PC, a bike, a sauna, and a four-top of Alexander McQueen
shoes. Just Take Two that add to $8155. She takes the computer and
the sauna. The computer... $2639. The sauna... $3695. Total:
$6334. She takes the sauna... and adds the shoes. The price...
$4460 for a total of... $8155!
Three games, three wins, only one spot in the Showcase... that
goes to Mark! Meanwhile, Dionne completes the first-four sweep
with a $2998 chair & ottoman. She will haul that away (C-Note:
though I can't imagine how) in a Kia Soul if she wins Money Game.

Theresa Holmes gets elementary, Watson, with a $1743 speaker
system with iPods. Next up, a home gym and ultra HDTV if she can

Aaron Kenny hopes not to kill our buzz after winning a $1995
diamond ring. If he doesn't, we'll send him to Thailand (6n @ BYD
Lofts Patong Beach in Phuket). He only needs to conquer Bonus
Game. He gets the $65 multi-chopper, the $10 hair remover, the $42
toaster, and the $125 air purifier to win the Bonus! For the
record, he had it with the chopper.
Dionne takes on Mark in the David-meet-Goliath Showcase. We're up
all night to get lucky with a trip to Las Vegas (5n from Vegas.com),
a roulette table, a foosball table, and a trip to Ireland (6n @
Cork). Top winner Mark passes, and Dionne bids $24,000. Mark gets
to cook with gas on an outdoor barbecue island, a patio set, and a
Honda Civic Natural Gas. He bids $23,000. Actual price... $41,535,
a difference of $18,535. Actual price of Dionne's Showcase...
$21,919! And Mark is your big winner of the WEEK with $143,545!
So to review, and we thank the folks over at Qwizx.com for the
data, we had over $2.3 millon in cash and prizes this week. Of it,
we gave away over $600,000. We'll take it.

There's another switch, as Deondra & Christina will play Fast
Money. Deondra was thrilled with her answers, as she got 170.
Christina showed no pressure, but all her answers were single

machine along with a pool table/PS4/and 40" LED HDTV worth $4,594!
Next up is Brentney the Hippie. Will she take the $1,000 or the
Big Box? She takes the Box and is going to Aruba for 5N at the
Aruba Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino worth $6,486! One more
time we do this with Fermin the Cow. He can take Curtain 2 or the
leftovers from the Previous two deals! That would mean $5,594 in
cash and arcade! Fermin goes for Curtain 2 and wins a MONSTER
Next up is Dr. William. He is playing for a $14,800 Kia Rio LX
Sedan by playing Movin On Up. He needs to get to the row of 6 to
the row of 2 without hitting a zonk. If he can get to the row of 2
and hit the CAR space, he will win the Kia and all the cash he won
on the way up. In the row of 6 he starts with 2 and $400. He moves
up to the row of 5 and it's 4. 4 adds $700. He has $1,100. Will he
move on up to the Row of 4? He picks 1 and it's $1,000. He has
$2,100 and STOPS. For fun he would have picked 2 in the row of 3
and $2,000. But 1 would have zonked him out at the top!
Katrina(as Mario) and Linda the Caveman will be making deals for
each other. Will Katrina give Linda a Diamond Dollar or the Red
Box? She gives Linda cash instead of Diamond Earrings worth
$3,480! She picks 4(out of 7) and Linda wins $2,800! Linda will
give Katrina the Green Box and Katrina is going to the River
Terrace Inn for 3N in Napa Valley worth $3,854! Individual
decisions time. Who trades for Curtain 1 and who keeps? They both
keep and would have won a REMOTE CONTROL COUCH(ZONK)!
James the Nerd has Curtain 2 which has 2 wheels. He passes on
$200/wheel...$400/wheel for a Piaggio Fly 150 Scooter with Helmet
worth $3,158! Next up is Uncle Sam as Herman. Wayne wants him to
have the Big Box and Jonathan has the Greenback Party envelope
with cash. After the LMAD Debate, Herman takes the box and passes
on cash worth $3,200! He wins a CORN DOG(ZONK)!
Three people are up next and they are Kieran(as the Statue of
Liberty), Allison the Ace of Hearts and George the Pirate. They

Kieran/Allison have $500 and are playing for a Cantoni Bedroom Set

$6,016 in cash and prizes! She can keep it or give that up for a
shot at a Nissan Cube S worth $17,710! If she wants to, she can
give her prizes and try and beat Wayne. If she does, she has to
assign two chips...one for her and one for Wayne. If she beats
Wayne, she wins the Cube. If not, Allison goes home with nothing.
Allison stops. She would have picked E with 6 and Wayne would have
beat her with C and 7!
Last deal involves Veronica the shoe. She can pick between two
LMAD Envelopes(Wayne's Western Wear Budget or Jonathan's Jammies
Budget). Veronica picks Wayne and passes on $800 in Jonathan's
envelope. Wayne's envelope has $1,600. Will she keep the cash or
take Curtain 3? She takes the cash and passes on a suite of
Electronics including 13" Samsung Laptop/22" All in One HP

door refrigerator, dishwasher, range, cookware and bakeware worth
$5,746! 2 was a pair of bikes and 1 yr of coconut water worth
$2,960! That means Allison wins the Big Deal which starts with a

Hatchback worth $23,752!
