What. Are. The. Odds? – Sep 22, 2017

The Price Is Right sparked an online frenzy on Friday as the show made history with a record-setting Showcase Showdown, with the most money ever being given away via spins on the show’s iconic wheel.

In honour of Drew Carey’s 10th anniversary hosting the Daytime Emmy Award-winning show, contestants who spun $1 on the wheel received a $10,000 bonus instead of the usual $1,000.

If they spun another $1, they received an additional $25,000. After an amazing five $1 spins on the wheel, a total of $80,000 was awarded to the lucky contestants, who looked like they couldn’t believe their luck.
