Winners & Losers

The Price Is Right gets better and better.

Yep, I said it. When Drew Carey first took over in 2007, I was not impressed. And I love me some Drew, but it was awkward and forced. If you've ever seen his standup act, you'll know that he's very raunchy and for that reason, I thought this would never go well. I said "he can't make dirty jokes about the contestants. This is going to suck" but I was wrong.  

He addresses the models by name (my favorite is Rachel) and the announcer, George Gray gets to be seen on TV. This is totally different than the way Bob used to run the show. You never knew the models' names, let alone hear them talk and the announcer was never seen, only heard. Makes me think Bob was a real jerk and thought it was all about him.

My favorite game is Plinko. Hands down. I would love to go up there and win $10,000 by just dropping a chip. Better yet, $50,000 but I'm not picky. I also enjoy Cliff Hangers because of the little yodeler guy. Yodelayheehoo!

I love when people get up there and get it right, unless they're total idiots. Then I want them to lose. Badly. I hate the people that take FOREVER to get down to the podium when their name is called. They're high fiving and jumping around like tools. I understand that you're excited, dude with too much gel, but Drew needs to get on with the show. Move your tush!

Am I the only one that gets angry when contestants get an easy game so wrong? The whole audience is telling you the answer and you decide you'll go with something else. Brilliant. Yea, this is going to go well. Oh wait, you got it wrong? Wow, I didn't see that coming at all. Oh, now you're so sad? Get off my TV. You better not even think about getting $1.00 when you spin the wheel. You don't deserve the showcase. Or the Jimmy Choo heels you won to get on stage. Maybe I'm just jealous. Yes, that has to be it.

What's your favorite thing about the show?
