“The Price is Right” Plans All-Plinko Special Edition
There are a few times I write something in eager anticipation of the reaction. This is one of them. Reports from Los Angeles are coming in that The Price is Right is planning a very special all-Plinko edition of the popular CBS daytime game show. The episode will mark the 30th anniversary of Price‘s most popular game. Usually contestants will just get to play each chip for $10,000 (a total of $50,000). However, to mix it up, prizes like cars and exotic trips were added to the board. You can check out the picture of an SUV in the center slot, courtesy Buzzfeed.
Also from Buzzfeed, executive producer Mike Richards says, “When we realized it was the 30th anniversary of Plinko, we wanted to do something special. And [host] Drew [Carey] and I have always wanted to do an all-Plinko show. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to keep trotting it out. There’s so much history with this game,” continued Richards. “It’s almost becoming baseball-like.…People have all kinds of theories of where to drop [the chip] — whether to drop it high and let it go, or as low as you can and try to feed it into that slot, or come off to the right and move it left.”
Just reminding the people that are going to complain endlessly about this that Plinko is, without a shadow of a doubt, the most popular game on the show. Everyone wants to play it. And the show is not remotely catered to the hardcore crazy fanbase. It’s catered to the general audience who loves seeing Plinko. Just keep that in mind.
The all-Plinko episode of The Price is Right will air Friday, September 27th.
