Storyline

"Come on down!" "The Price Is Right" -- hosted by Bob Barker until 2007 and Drew Carey thereafter -- features a wide variety of games and contests with the same basic challenge: Guess the prices of everyday (or not-quite-everyday) retail items. Four contestants, all of whom are seated in one of the wildest audiences in daytime game-show history, are called to the stage to play a preliminary pricing round. That winner joins the host on stage for one of more than 70 different pricing games. After three such games, the contestants spin a big wheel -- hoping to get as close to $1 as possible -- in the "Showcase Showdown." The two highest winners of that round advance to the final, where prizes could be cars or roomsful of furniture. A trio of models presents the prizes. Written by Jwelch5742

Trivia

June 10, 1998: Contestants Suzanne and Chirell made history at the Showcase Showdown when both won $11,000 (the maximum amount you can win from both spins). Eventually, Suzanne won the spinoff and went to the final Showcase. See more »

Goofs

If a contestant won the right to a bonus spin in a Showcase Showdown (spinning the large wheel), Bob Barker always warned the contestant that the wheel had to make at least one revolution during the bonus spin or "it doesn't count and you don't get to spin again." The fact that the contestant would not get another chance to spin means that the insufficient spin WOULD count. See more »

Quotes

[repeated at the end of every show]
Bob Barker: Bob Barker reminding you: help control the pet population. Have your pet spayed or neutered. Goodbye, everybody!

A Priceless Gameshow
11 July 2001 | by Jdc102See all my reviews

This show rules! Its really cool how a show that has been on since 1972 continues to do so well, and I think because its just really entertaining. They often have a lot of really good prizes, like some really good cars. I think this is a very enjoyable show for people who love to watch GameShows. I hope this comes to GameShow Network..

Thanks for Reading..
