For third time in a month, and the fourth time in three months, a contestant on “The Price is Right” wins both showcases in the Showcase round.  Today, the lucky contestant was Lorna Baker.

Lorna was the fourth of the first four contestants to come on down at the top of the show, and the fourth contestant to make it on stage, winning a Traeger Lil’ Pig grill in One Bid.  Once on stage, she played Freeze Frame and won Wesley Allen bed with a Laura Ashley mattress.

In the Showcase Showdown, she spun 1.00 on the Big Wheel, winning $1,000, but nothing more in her bonus spin.

In the Showcase round, Lorna passed the first showcase to the runner-up, Catherine.  The first showcase consisted of a Kitty Hawk Kites kiteboarding kit, a Segway scooter, and a Toyota Prius hybrid car.  The second showcase contained Broyhill’s Affinity living room collection, Noritake dinnerware, a private chef from Big City Chefs, and a trip to Brussels, Belgium!  (Sorry, I morphed into announcer Rich Fields for a second.)

Lorna’s bid for that second showcase was $17,250.  The actual retail price…$17,333!  With a difference of $83, $4 less than Zachary Newton’s difference two weeks ago, Lorna Baker won both showcases.  In all, she won $56,150 in cash and prizes.  What a day.

Video of today’s show can be found here.  Skip to 16:55 to see One Bid and Freeze Frame, 28:34 for the Showcase Showdown, and 31:23 for the Showcase round.
