You’d think that someone accidentally driving a prize car through part of the set would be something that only came along once, but it’s happened a few times on “Price is Right.” Aside from Mrs. Brady’s accident, there was another time when one of the show’s models crashed a Mustang through a set wall.
Rachel Reynolds was supposed to have driven the vehicle to the part of the set where they were filming, to show it off. Except, she drove it straight through a wall, instead. Later, she said she “totally didn’t even realize the car had a stick shift.”
Welcome Snoop Dogg
In 2017, rap legend Snoop Dogg joined host Drew Carey on the set of the show for what would make for one of the most exciting episodes in its history. No one knew exactly what to expect when Snoop Dogg hit the stage, but they probably weren’t expecting him to be like, insanely good at playing the game.
Unlike most contestants, the rapper wasn’t playing to put the money in his own wallet, but rather, he was playing to support his youth football league. And, he ended up winning more than $72,500 – all of which went to the youth athletics organization. I guess there are more important things on his mind than money.
The Accidental Car Giveaway
There have been quite a few mistakes to happen on the show throughout its existence. Perhaps one of the most memorable (and expensive) came in 2015 when one said error resulted in the random giveaway of a Hyundai Sonata SE.
The mistake came when the model randomly pulled an extra price tag during one game, where a contestant had three guesses to choose the one that revealed the win. Fortunately for the contestant, the show decided to honor the tag, since she and the audience had all already seen it. That’s a pretty pricy “oops” moment, Manuela!
Knocking Over the Big Screen TV
The models have had their fair share of issues when it comes to the show’s recordings. Just take the time, not one, but two of the show’s models knocked over a prize worth well over $1,000.
During the moment, which happened during the filming of the show in 2011, caused a gasp from the audience – probably a lot of guys who felt the pain when the announcer said, “a brand new TV and Xbox system – right before the models knocked it over and broke it.
Overly Excited Contestant Knocks Down Drew Carey
It’s got to be hard to contain your excitement when you’re in an environment like the set of a game show. After all, everyone is super pumped up and ready to win some cash, and you can imagine the feeling if you actually win, which is what happened during this show, when this woman won Contestant’s Row.
This woman was just $65 off when she won, with Drew Carey calling her up on stage. And, like most people at that point, she was jumping up and down, excited and at the moment. Unfortunately, she was a little too excited and wound up, knocking the host down and tumbling down right along with him. Luckily, they were both okay, and the show went on.
