Bob: Caitlin, can you show our contestant what they are bidding on...
Crowd screams, contestants oooh and aaaah. They look back at their friends for guesstimates.
Bob: Let's hear more about this product before bidding begins.
Rod: Bob, this state of the art dishwasher will be delivered to your home after 4 tries! The first attempt will be delayed because of the biggest ice storm ever; the second attempt will be delayed because they'll come when you're not home; the third delivery attempt the dishwasher will be severely damaged; but on the 4th attempt we will be able to leave the dishwasher in your kitchen.
Unfortunately, the whacked out people who owned your house before you will have messed up your pipes so badly that our professional installers will NOT be able to install this BRAND NEW DISHWASHER and it will have to sit useless in the middle of your kitchen until you can get a plumber in to fix your sh!t.
Bob: Um, thank you Rod... Kathleen, what would you like to start the bidding at?
