CBS Turns the Tables With April Fool’s Editions of “The Price is Right” and “Let’s Make A Deal”

For the past few years The Price is Right has celebrated April Fool’s Day in unexpected and funny ways.  They’re continuing the trend in 2013, and its sister show Let’s Make A Deal is getting into the fun, too.  The CBS daytime game show block will be playing pranks on contestants, cast, crew, and home audiences during themed episodes on April 1st.

*First, on The Price is Right, the joke is on host Drew Carey and announcer George Gray.  For the first time they’ll learn how it is to present the prizes.  The guys will spend the day modeling the prizes.  Meanwhile, the models (Manuela, Amber, Gwendolyn and Rob), will take turns hosting the show.  You’ll see George and Drew present prizes like trampoline, a hot tub, jet skis and, of course, a new car.

*On Let’s Make A Deal, also for the first time ever, previously Zonked contestants are going to get a chance at redemption.  Contestants who won nothing but joke  prizes during the last four seasons get to come back one more time in an attempt to change their luck and, finally, win a prize.  Host Wayne Brady will also be playing an April Fool’s Day joke on the entire audience and, if they choose correctly, they could all be leaving with something.

This all happens Monday, April 1st, on CBS.  Like we said, The Price is Right tends to knock April Fool’s Day out of the park.  Take a look at one of their previous specials.

    I’m reading this and I’m already laughing!
    This has to be one of the episodes that I look forward to watching all year.
    (This and the Halloween episode)

  • HD says:

    I thought LMAD did the “second chance” thing a couple seasons back, yes?

  • Bob Porrazzo says:

    With what TPIR is doing this could be the inspired lunacy that was the April Fool’s day in 2008. The last few times have been duds IMHO.

  • Nick says:

    I’ll never forget Gwendolyn setting that showcase on fire or Rachel driving a car into the doors. So disappointed they didn’t do one last year since April 1st was on a Sunday. Just makes me more excited for this year’s episode! :)

  • Matt says:

    I wonder jokes that Amber, Maneula, and Rob are going to do this year since Rachel and Gwendolyn won’t be in it due to their pregnancies.

  • Brian says:

    Can’t wait. Especially TPiR…their April Fools shows are always AMAZING. Already have the DVR set.

    Great episode where all the models got to shine. Drew and George were good “models” as well. Very enjoyable to watch. This would not have worked if Barker wre still the host.
