We still have a handful of episodes scattered throughout the summer, like next Friday's 4th of July Spectacular, the annual Back to School episode, and the Show Some Love for Mike Klauss episode, but for all practical intents and purposes, THIS IS IT. The final show before the Priceless Summer (TM). And to send us into the summer, we have the newest in Ultimate Price Parties (TM), the Ultimate Sweet 16. As a rule, the teen can consult with the parent, but the parent's word is considered final and binding.

So... let's do this one more time.

Here to party with us today are four teenagers & their parents: Brittany Arbab & Constance McCullough, Gus Sausedo & Gisela Cano, De'zheana Lattimore & Peggy Rivera, and Trevor & Kevin Haumschilt. First gift: a PS4 package with HDTV. The $1760 package goes to Trevor & Kevin, who play for something EVERY 16-year-old wants... A NEW CAR! The Honda Civic is up for grabs in Money Game.

18  43  71
83  50  94
17  19  65

Middle number is 9. 18... Money. 19... front! 50... money. 94... money. 65 gives them... $227. The car was $19,971.

De'zheana & Peggy get a $2365 spa day in San Diego (3n @ Hard Rock Hotel San Diego). And look what we have now... ANOTHER NEWCAR! It's a Chevy Spark in Range Game. They stop it at $14,210. The price... $14,405. Yikes. Off by a hair.

In case you haven't noticed by now, this is the CBS-mandated clear-out-the-garage-for-Pete's-sake episode.

Ethan Fider & Tamara Brady get a $1180 mountable camera/PC prize pack and a shot at a Mitsubishi Mirage in Hi-Lo. The lowest in the Hi-Row: $4.49 for the Herbal Essences hair spray. The Pringles chips... $3.29. Temptations cat food... $1.99. Luden's cough drops... $2.19 for the win!

But De'zheana & Peggy would get the Spin-off win over Ethan & Tamara, 75-70. Meanwhile, Gus & Gisela pick up a $2860 pair of smartphones. Don't text and drive a Fiat 500 Pop in Pushover.

2 1 8 1 9 4 7 5 0

They push to $19,475... A couple of blocks, they needed. $18,194.

Keith & Jack Harding get a $1470 set of Marc Jacobs accessories. What's better than a car? A car and Gas Money. On offer: a Dodge Dart.


$18,388... $3000. $19,515.... the car.

It's another crunch-time situation, and Brittany & Constance face the walk (and we do mean "walk") of shame if they don't act on a car receiver. The price: $949. Winners... Julia Kimitess & Jennifer Cain, who can put that in a Ford Fiesta if they locate and connect the Secret X. Freebie goes top left. They get two more from a $25 waxer and a $63 cooler. They go right corners. The Secret X... DEAD CENTER!

So we've already given away two cars today. Julia & Jennifer beat Gus & Gisela, 40-10, to try to make it three for the day in the Showcase... should a Showcase offer one.

First, a super Sweet 16 party with a karaoke machine with dance floor, a trip to the Florida Keys (6n @ Hawks Cay Resort in Duck Key), and a Hyundai Accent. Top winners Julia & Jennifer pass, and Ze'zheanna & Peggy bid $21,550. Julia & Jennifer get to fasten their seatbelts for a driving course in Monterey (3n) and a Mini Cooper Convertible. They bid $24,500. Actual price: $33,336, a difference of $8836. Actual price of De'zheana & Peggy's Showcase... $35,377, a difference of $13,826. So by $5000 give or take, Julia & Jennifer get to party all summer long with $49,063.

We're back next Friday for the 4th of July Spectacular, but for now, that's all she wrote. We've had some thrilling highs and more than our fair share of lows, but still, The Price Is Right is one of the best-produced hours on television today. I can only think of one way to tie a bow on season 43... "Help control the pet population; have your pets spayed or neutered."

  Four more fights, four more to advance to the next round. First...
Roboteer: Charles Guan
Cambridge, MA
AGG: 31 / CON: 36 / WPN: 31 / DEF: 23
Roboteer: Donald Hutson
parts unknown
AGG: 93 / CON: 97 / WPN: 64 / DEF: 55

Both are clamp-bots, but these robots couldn't be any more different, and neither could their pilots. The bad blood boils into the match when Lock-Jaw slams into Overhaul after the buzzer

WINNER BY SPLIT JUDGES' DECISION: LOCK-JAW. But I have a feeling that Overhaul will be back.

Roboteer: Inertia Labs
parts unknown
AGG: 91 / CON: 89 / WPN: 91 / DEF: 83
Witch Doctor
Roboteer: Andrea Suarez
parts unknown
AGG: 89 / CON: 80 / WPN: 89 / DEF: 83

Witch Doctor comes equipped with a 60-pound drum spinner and a fire-breathing mini-bot. Bronco bucks with a pneumatic flipper.


Counter Revolution
Roboteer: unknown
parts unknown
AGG: 60 / CON: 81 / WPN: 67 / DEF: 71
Roboteer: Ray Billings
Folsom, CA
AGG: 86 / CON: 85 / WPN: 94 / DEF: 47

Tombstone has a really big blade, while Counter Revolution has a pair of vertical spinners.


Final bout of the night...

Complete Control
Roboteer: Derek Young
parts unknown
AGG: 71 / CON: 75 / WPN: 54 / DEF: 57
Ghost Raptor
Roboteer: Chuck Pitzer
Newark, CA
AGG: 59 / CON: 69 / WPN: 79 / DEF: 44

Complete Control comes equipped with a pneumatic ramrod. Ghost Raptor as a pair of ramrods attached to a spinner and a tracking device. Complete Control's surprise gift for Ghost Raptor... a cargo net entangling Ghost Raptor.

While we try and sort this out, some other action in the tournament:

- Stinger def. Capt. Shrederator by KO
- Overdrive def. Chomp by KO
- Radioactive def. Sweet Revenge by Judge's Decision
- Hypershock def. Mohawk by KO

Now the official ruling in the Complete Control/Ghost Raptor match...  The fight has been nullified, and both parties have agreed to a rematch.


With that, our round of 16 automatic bids are complete. Now the losers must wait to see who amongst them get four wild-cards. They are... OVERHAUL, CHOMP, WITCH DOCTOR, and from last week, WARHEAD!

  Last week, it was all about a man named Brennan Bushee. This week, it's all about Matt Pressman. One more game, and he enters the tournament talk.
Matt Pressman

Somerville, MA
graduate student in history
Kat Cahill
orig. Cincinnati
pharmacy technician
Ankoor Bagchi

Matt starts with $200 Writing. At the TV timeout, Kat has $3000 to Matt's $1000. Ankoor has $400.

Ankoor gets the last clue, the Daily Double under $800 Saints. He bets $400 on this: St. Cyprian was bishop of this old foe of Rome during a persecution of Christians; make that St. Cyprian the Martyr. "What is Constantinople?" No, it was Carthage, leaving him with $3000, still leading Kat & Matt's $2200 a head.

Closest to Alex goes first. That's Matt with $400 Serious Nonfiction. Ankoor finds the first Daily Double under $1200 American History. He goes for $2000 on this: the Great White Fleet, 16 battleships that toured the world in 1907, were a show of TR's foreign policy called this. "What is the Roosevelt Doctrine?" No, it was the Big Stick, leaving Ankoor with a slightly smaller stick, $2600. Ankoor will try to avoid the reverse trifecta with $1200 Serious Nonfiction. He bets $1200 on this: with this year for a book title, Charles C. Mann brings to life what civilization was like in the Americas before Columbus. "What is 1491?" RIGHT for $7400! He ends with $12,200 to Matt's $8200. Kat is still a factor with $6200.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Novel Characters": this lawyer from a famed 1960 novel shares a name with an ancient Roman renowned for his wisdom. Correct response: who is Atticus Finch?

Kat and Matt are right. Ankoor... is also right to win $16,401! Matt leaves with $48,700.
