Video: Painful Overbid on “Price is Right” Showcase

Yesterday's episode of The Price is Right generated an interesting ending.  Contestant Mitchell won his way on stage at the last possible moment and played Ten Chances for a new car.  Unfortunately he couldn't get through the game and ended up with a portable heater and a camera.  He made it to the Showcase which consisted of a Sony Xperia phone with one year service, a trip to Key Largo, and a Chevy Spark.  Mitchell settled on a bid of $23,320.  You wouldn't believe how close he got. Click here to take a look at the shocking results.

Cassidy Schlitz Wins $100,000 on “The Price is Right”; Second Highest Daytime Winner

This week's Big Money Week on The Price is Right kicked off just about as large as possible.  Contestant Cassidy Schlitz was lucky enough to make it on stage to play the pricing game Half Off, the day's "Big Money" game, for $100,000.  Its usual prize is $10,000.  Sixteen boxes are presented to Cassidy.  One has $100,000 and the rest have nothing.  She must select the correct box to win.  Cassidy was lucky enough to correctly identify the price of three prizes and narrow her odds from 1/16 to 1/2 (each correct prize guess removes half of the boxes).  Left with boxes 5 and 14, Cassidy chose 5, opened the lid, and saw $100,000 in cash sitting inside.  Click here to learn more and see the big win.

Video: Check Game Returns to “The Price is Right”

A long-benched pricing game on CBS's daytime game show The Price is Right has made its return.  The popular pricing game "Check Game" has made its return.  Its last playing was May 2009.  The game got a relatively minor face lift to fit high definition, but the rules have largely remained the same.  A prize is presented.  Contestants need to write a check to cash and if the value of the prize plus the value of the check equal between $7,000 and $8,000; they win it all.  If they don't get it, though, they do receive a big novelty voided check.  Click here to take a look at the first playing and let us know what you think.  Any other pricing games you'd like to see return?

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. Our contestant from this week, Reeshemah, is getting awfully close to winning it.  Do we have the first winner? Click here to watch, read our thoughts, and let us know what you think.
