Although the current Price Is Right Announcer Tryouts have left people in utter disgust, whether it's JD Roberto's on-air bashing of the contestants, Jeff Davis's weirdness or Brad Sherwood in general, everybody comes together on one of the biggest shows on The Price Is Right docket, The Veterans Day Special. It is, far and away, one of the best shows out there. Just for it's atmosphere & good-natured of it, it's brilliant. However, some of the contestants that they choose...less so.
Tech Sergeant Amber Hunnicutt....COME ON DOWN!!!
Like most people at the show this day, she is happy to be there, and why wouldn't she be. It's the special Veteran's Day show & it's full of great stuff happening. The first game in itself is memorable because it was Pay The Rent, which had a $10,000 win, but if the guy had gone for it, he would have beaten the game for $100,000. The next item up for bids was a Poker Table, which Amber won, quite handedly. Now she gets rewarded by going for....
A NEW CAR!!!! It's a brand new 2011 Chevy Camaro. A really good car.
She is playing Lucky Seven right now, and she starts off on the right foot. She got the 4 on the nose and missed the 5 by only 2. So, with 5 dollars left and 4 left in wiggle room, the normal person would go 5, because the wiggle room would pretty much secure going for the last number, maybe winning the car if it's right. So, what does Tech Sergeant Amber Hunnicutt call out...
Yeah, she called a 9. Why would anybody call a 9 in the middle of the price? I know that sometimes the numbers and prices of the cars have been a tad screwy as of late, but calling a 9 and it being the 3rd number to be called instead of the first? That's just cause for self-losing of the game...
And Sure enough, it was. The two came up, breaking her and costing her the Camaro.
I don't know anybody who would call a 9 in the game anymore. It's just something you don't do, unless you're absolutely positively sure it's a 9. But anyways, what she did isn't indicative of how the Air Force goes, so I'm sure that the bright lights just got to her. But, alas, this would be the lowest light on a really bright show, so it qualifies to be on here.
It should be very noted that the
Veterans do deserve our support and we should be thankful everyday for
what they did for us here or overseas in the world. So, if you see
a veteran nearby, tell them simply..."thank you."
