Couple Pays Ultimate Price On ‘The Price Is Right’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Usually, people go on The Price Is Right to win, but sometimes contestants totally lose it.

Stan Blits is the co-producer, music director, and contestant coordinator for The Price Is Right, and recently penned Come On Down! (HarperCollins), a book where he recalls his most priceless experiences from his 27 years working on the gameshow.

As a casting pro, Blits has screened every type of wacky contestant imaginable for the show, but he’ll never forget a time when a married couple broke up in the middle of their contestant casting interview.

He explains, “The husband told the wife he was sleeping with her cousin and she was livid. Why he told her before The Price Is Right is beyond me, since it’s the happiest show ever. They broke up right in front of me and I was shocked. They didn’t quite make it on the show.”

Another time, a wild winner had Blits and new host Drew Carey grinning over her dental disaster.

Says Blits: “This lady was so excited to win that her teeth fell out! Everyone in the studio was dying of laughter and this poor lady was on the floor looking for her teeth. It was hilarious!”

The Price Is Right begins airing new episodes today (Oct. 15).
