Video: Will Reeshemah Win $100,000 on “The Price is Right” and “Pay the Rent”?
Sorry for being out the past few days. But we’re back and there’s a lot going on. Let’s start with a recap video today, though. One of The Price is Right‘s most interesting games is “Pay the Rent.” It’s interesting beyond the $100,000 payout, which is the highest cash prize the show offers. It’s interesting because the game is, understandably, very hard and actually requires you to think. Contestants must stack grocery items in four tiers, and each tier must be higher than the last. Items don’t necessarily go low to high, though. It takes some deep thinking and some luck to win. However, it is winnable. It’s been proven at least once, though the contestant bailed out.
Our contestant from this week, Reeshemah, is getting awfully close to winning it. Do we have the first winner? Check it out.
I’ve said it repeatedly but I genuinely enjoy the game and don’t get the rampant hatred for it among some parts. It’s understandably tricky, but I don’t see what the issue with having a game that actually requires some thought is. And, again, it is winnable. It’s been proven yet again it is. Someone is going to win it at some point. There are tricks astute fans have pointed out to make winning much more doable. However, for some reason, when this new crew that produces the show puts in hidden tricks, it’s the worst thing ever. When the old crew did it, though, it was fine. They’ve even made the game easier to win recently. They’re actively trying to give away the money. I don’t know what more you can ask for. When most shows do this people get excited. I don’t understand why Price has to be some sacred, hallowed ground where nothing like that can happen.
