The final round of The Price Is Right; it involves two players who have won the Showcase Showdown. The player who has won the most money out of the two is the Top Winner; the player who has won the least money out of the two is the Runner-Up. The object is to come as close as you can to the actual retail price--WITHOUT GOING OVER. The Top Winner has the privilege to bid on the first Showcase or force the Runner-Up to bid on it; this is called passing. If a player overbids, he/she is automatically disqualified (but they keep the prizes won before the round), as an overbid cannot win. If a player wins, and he/she is $250 or less ($500 if a Million Dollar Spectacular) away from the actual retail price, he/she will win BOTH Showcases (and $1,000,000 if a Million Dollar Spectacular)! If both players are over, it is called a double overbid; in other words, nobody wins. A good strategy if a player thinks his/her opponent overbid is bidding $1.
"Actual retail price..." Drew Carey announced to the top winner before revealing the good news in the Showcase.
