‘The Price Is Right’ Makes History As Contestants Win Record-Breaking $80,000 By Spinning Wheel

“The Price Is Right” sparked an online frenzy on Friday as the show made history with a record-setting Showcase Showdown, with the most money ever being given away via spins on the show’s iconic wheel.

In honor of Drew Carey’s 10th anniversary hosting the Daytime Emmy Award-winning show, contestants who spun $1 on the wheel received a $10,000 bonus instead of the usual $1,000.

If they spun another $1, they received an additional $25,000. After an amazing five $1 spins on the wheel, a total of $80,000 was awarded to the lucky contestants, who looked like they couldn’t believe their luck.

The latest “Price Is Right” record comes after a contestant named Ryan ended up breaking the show’s record for the most money ever to be won during an episode back in May.

With winnings valued at $31,500, the contestant in question managed to bag a lot of money in a short amount of time.
