That was more like a fizzle than a finazzle, wasn't it?
Chico: Thus needing the Finazzle.
Gordon: We are back here with Alex Davis as we start our first
shot of 2005.
Chico: Yo :)
Gordon: Our first show, too.
Alex: Hi - lol - Our first shot at the show.
Chico: I'll have a shot of what Gordon's having.
Gordon: Want some prune juice?
Chico: Sure... Prune juice. That's what they call it nowadays.
Gordon: So we are unleashing a game - not a new game, but one
we haven't done
since 2003. We call it Bargain Hunters. I'll give you some
items, you tell me
which ones you'd want to buy.
Gordon: We'll start off where Chico left off - three of the
games on TPIR are Coming or Going, 1/2 Off and Pocket Change. Unfortunately, you
can only buy two of them, Which ones do you want?
Chico: I'll buy 1/2 Off and Pocket Change. I'm a stickler for
Alex: Half Off just reminds me too much of Fortune Hunter. So
I'll buy Coming
or Going and Pocket Change.
Gordon: Next up - Which event would you want to buy airline
tickets to see -
The Donald's Wedding or the Finals of the Dream Derby?
Alex: Donald's Wedding because it won't smell like horse crap,
but that's the
Chico: Hmm... I'd prolly be bored at the wedding, so I'd go to
Derby. Of course it helps that I had a cold this past week and
can't smell much of
Gordon: Split decision here. I would probably want to go to
the Derby, just
because there will probably be a poker game that breaks out.
which.... Atlantic City, New Orleans, San Diego. These are
three of the places where
the World Series of Poker will have their regional tours
before the big one
in Vegas. You have enough money to qualify in one of those
cities. Which one
would you go to?
Chico: N'awlins :-)
Alex: Yeah, I gotta go New Orleans also because of the people
out from Mardi Gras.
Chico: Especially around Mardi Gras time? Mm-hmm...
Gordon: Well, if you are going to Mardi Gras, you will have to
Alex: I have a girlfriend, I'm OK.
Gordon: Not on this game, you don't. Girlfriends aside, you
can buy the
airline tickets for any current person left in the Amazing
Race of The Apprentice.
Who would you select and why?
Chico: Kendra. Hands DOWN!
Gordon: And why Kendra?
Chico: Why Kendra... Easy to get along with... easy to shut up
when the need
arises... and she's a fricking MODEL!
Gordon: You wouldn't want a wrestler to protect you from the
throngs of women who want to tear your clothes off?
Chico: ... Nah, not really =p
Gordon: Ok. Next one - You can buy off one person to never
show - again. Who would it be? (Like I can't guess who you're
going to pick,
Chico: Do you honestly have to ask?
Gordon: Ok, besides THAT person, who else would you ask?
Alex: I wish Scott Stone would just stop. He needs to be
shipped far far away.
Chico: I agree with that. Stone Stanley is now "Stone & Co. Entertainment".
Chico: Dream Derby's just the latest from that camp.
Gordon: Final question - What show that just got cancelled
would you buy more
Chico: Rebel Billionaire. With another Billionaire, of
Alex: And I'd like to see Trivial Pursuit or Fake Out come
back for more
episodes, I really enjoyed those two.
Chico: I liked Fake Out season 1 better than season 2,
Gordon: Fair enough. We'll wrap everything up with the BIG
FINISH - next!

Gordon: Too bad, I like frontal lobes.
Chico: Interestingly enough, they also cast Shop Till You
explains why they jump all excited and such. Okay, running
short on time, so we're
going to the Big Finish. Amazing Race, who's next? Jonathan
and Victoria are
Gordon: I think now it's the wrestlers turn to go bye bye.
Chico: Which is kinda sad. I like those wrestlers.
Gordon: I like them too - but the smart teams do good now and
the dumb ones
usually at this stage are put out to pasture. Women Vs. Men -
Poker Royale -
who will eventually win?
Chico: Seems like the Women got a head start the first game
out. But I think
the men'll get the upper hand ultimately.
Gordon: I think the men will win most of the games - but the
women will win
most of the points.
Chico: The Apprentice... Who are you pulling for... Brains or
going street, because obviously they know what they're doing.
Gordon: I think the brains will win the event, but I like both
teams and the
street team is more relatable. Who is the next to go?
Chico: It's going to be another brain. I can feel the brains
the pressure, not having anything more than theory to go on.
Okay, we've got
Gordon: Go for it!
Chico: This is from Ken Hidaka...
Would you agree that this week has been the most disappointing
week in Wheel
of Fortune history? The contestants have had trouble solving
puzzles, and missing opportunities to win the big prizes in
the bonus round. What
do you attribute that towards? Do you think things will change
in the next few
Chico: Well, what can you say. I mean, you had two $100,000
prizes lost, and
no one getting the bonus puzzle. All I can see is the
pressure... the luck of the draw?
Gordon: I think it can be very tough under that sort of
pressure to solve
those puzzles. It certainly has been one of the lowest weeks in
WOF history, but I
think that there will be people who will be able to solve the
despite that pressure.
Chico: There's always a hot streak going.
Gordon: That's true - all it takes is one $100,000 win.
Chico: And we're kinda due. And now we're kinda overdue.

you get for sending mail?
Gordon: Sweet nothing! Ok... Credibility!
Chico: Thanks to Alex for stopping by. For Simon, I'm Randy,
Gordon: And I'm Simon, saying while the singing has just
started, the game
(for today) is over.
Chico: Peace out!
