Unless those models are willing to get naked and throw little pickles at my feet, my dreams will live to dream again.

The one in the gif? I hear she's got twins. In her bra.

It helps if you do or don't have hobbies.

As a teenage boy in the late 1970's, with no internet porn and with lingerie catalogs being really hot stuff in those days, TPIR models figured heavily into quite a few dreams.

My dreams? So you're saying I can get turned into a Chinese finger trap by Bob Barker and Drew Carey after we all make out in the front row of a circus? Sweet!

"I had one line: "They're gone," and my mother told me I was very convincing, which is an odd thing for a parent to say about a child playing a Nazi.)" I laffed.

That was a pretty nice article, I wasn't expecting it to be.

Sat in the front row of the first show of Bob Barker's last season with my mom. We'd been camping out on the street since 8pm the night before. I was a little bleary-eyed by the time we finished taping, but we had a blast.

I remember this old radio I used to have that picked up CBS, and I'd listen to The Price is Right when I was stuck at home sick from school because the TV was in the living room and sick people stayed in their room.

It's weird to have pleasant memories of being hideously ill. Thanks, Bob.

I had a blast when it was my last season with your mom too.  Several blasts, actually.

Agreed! A well-told story without attitude or irony is so difficult to find online these days...or maybe my problem is I read links almost exclusively from Fark. Anyway, I bookmarked this one for later so I can tell my lame students next semester: "Take a lesson, kids - THIS is how you tell a story."

It's my guilty secret that I've always wanted to be a contestant on TPIR. My folks always told me that my first words were "Come on down!", shouted at the TV when the show came on. I know it's sappy, but I always wanted to tell that story to Bob Barker.

/Yeah, I know that's crazy. So?

What is with far right girl's face? Looks like some sort of locomotive/cow catcher.

/That was a cool read.

Sorry, Subby, but that would involve Doc Brown's DeLorean, Holly Hallstrom and some alone time together, so I'm thinking the odds are pretty slim.

Been there, done that. Won a car.

I was on there years ago, 1992
Bob Barker is funnier than you'd expect...warming up the audience before the show.

And the guy next to me, won EVERYTHING.

2 cars
1 boat
1 trip
Furniture
Cash and more...

His wife was saying, "but we live in Wisconsin...how are we going to get everything home???"

/sell a farkin' car...friggin' ONE seat away from being picked.

The supposed appeal of game shows is the contestants being regular people through whom the viewer can vicariously experience the game. In the particular case of TPiR, it's supposed to be people who just walked off the street. If shows are going to be dominated by "professional contestants" who do a ton of homework ahead of time, there's less difference with competitively auditioned and cast "reality" game shows.

PHASE 3: Convince my brother-in-law in San Diego, who knows actually how to make spreadsheets, to make those spreadsheets.

Wait wait wait wait. Wait.

You can harmonize all those statisticals but you can't use Excel?

I have a recurring nightmare where I make it to contestants row but don't make it on to the stage. It's strangely devastating every time. I'm not sure what it means but I'm pretty sure I need a therapist.
