History of The Price is Right
How to see The Price is Right in
A Salute to Game Shows
Contestants' Row is the place that all contestants on The Price is Right call
home - that is, until they win their way on stage. It's here that contestants go
when they come on down! It was to this very location that the infamous Yolanda was
going when her top gave way. It was here that Vanna White stayed during the show
that she was a contestant on back in 1980. It was here... well, you get the idea.
But occasionally a contestant gets carried away and goes up on stage. If this
happens, though, Bob gets them to realize what they did, and they go to Contestants' Row.
In Contestants' Row, contestants bid on the items that are up for bids.
In bidding, it begins with the contestant that was last called
down, or with the contestant on the far left at the first of the show. But
regardless of who they start with, they always move to the right. The contestant who
bids closest to the actual retail price without going over goes on stage to play a pricing
game. If everyone overbids, they sound a buzzer and erase the bids. If a
contestant is to bid exactly right, then they get a $500 bonus for their perfect bid.
And of course, contestants not appearing on stage will receive some
kind of prize.
