Wait a Minute — Was the Wheel Rigged? History Is Made on ‘The Price Is Right’

Sep 22, 2017  •  Post A Comment

The venerable TV game show “The Price Is Right,” hosted by Drew Carey, announced that it made history on today’s broadcast with a record-breaking showcase showdown in which a total of $80,000 was awarded — the most money ever given out on the Wheel.

“In honor of Drew Carey’s 10th anniversary hosting, contestants who spun $1 on the Wheel received a $10,000 bonus instead of the usual $1,000,” the show announced in a promotional blurb posted along with the clip. “If they spun another $1, they received an additional $25,000. Today, after an amazing five $1 spins on the Wheel, a total of $80,000 was awarded.”

  1. It was rigged for ratings.

  2. Yes it was rigged, The wheel slowed down in a way that I’ve never seen it slow down before. There needs to be a Congressional investigation (lol). But it was fun to see those three contestants win more money.

  3. Yes the big wheel is riged

  4. I knew for a while,he stands in the same place and leans forward to be newtrul, leans back to slow down, watch all episodes Bob and Drew stands in the same place, wish I could be on the show. I’m a nobody. But I wish Wayne Watson from Greenacres,FL. 5613257194. Be on show,

  5. Of course the game is rigged……from the selection of contestants to Drew pulling the so called prize cost out of his pocket, which by the way no one sees, to the wheel then the final give away….it’s obvious.

  6. I believe that after seeing people behind other games waving their hands etc.,that there is probably a person applying a braking mechanism to the wheels axel.

  7. On yesterday’s show, during the Big Wheel spin, after a contestant’s first spin, she moved over to stand at Drew’s right. While the wheel was still spinning, Drew asked her to move/stand on his left. Granted I am a card-carrying Doubting Thomas, but THAT REALLY was quite suspicious to me! I’ve NEVER seen THAT happen before!!!!! No matter who was hosting!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I dont believe its rigged because half of the people .that wins cant afford the taxes to pay to get there winnings anyway out of California. The taxes are extremely high in Cali and people arent prepared for that and then comes the paying of getting back to there home state with the prizes.

  9. That show was definitely rigged. I think it was disgraceful because now I don’t believe it is a game of chance.

  10. Look up quiz show scandal for why The Price is Right wouldn’t do this. Come on people.
