This "Dumb Answer of the Week" takes
us back to holiday week on "The Price is Right".
A NEW CAHHHHHHHH! It's a brand new Kia
Rio LX with all sorts of spiffy fixings. Bro-ski model not included.
To win the car, Hatea must win "Cover
Up". You probably know how this game is played by now. $38,400 isn't the
price of a Kia Rio LX. The first number is either a 1 or 2, the second
number is either a 2, 5 or 0, and so on and so on. So, let's see what
Part of me is scratching my head here.
He's picking a 2 first. Can we take another look at that car, please?
We're talking about a subcompact car
here. A subcompact car usually doesn't cost more than $15,000-$17,000.
So, why would he pick a 2?
Or not. Maybe he really thinks this is
a $20,000 vehicle? I have a bad feeling about this.
Wow. Not a single number right and the
game ends immediately.
Drew's in disbelief over it all saying
he's never seen this happen. I can't remember seeing it happen, off the
top of my head and...
He won his showcase showdown only to overbid
on his showcase by a couple of hundred dollars. Tough day all around for
Hatea. In fact, it might be one of the worst days a contestant has had
on "Price" ever.
