El Paso Man Makes it to Showcase Showdown on ‘The Price Is Right’
A guy from El Paso named Albert appeared on the hit game show 'The Price Is Right.' The lucky El Pasoan even made it all the way to the 'Showcase Showdown.' Check out his sweet running man celebration move below.
Albert had this to say about his experience.
My wife and I decided to go to The Price is Right for our honeymoon earlier this year. We love watching the show and it was on our bucket list to be live at a taping. Our episode aired today and I wanted to share it with y'all.
The selection process is pretty crazy. They take your headshot, you take a celebration photo in front of a green screen, and you go through a very quick "interview" process with the producers. I don't even know if you can call it that because you're in a line of about 30 people and the producer meets with each person for about 10 seconds. I noticed him asking me more questions than usual and my wife says "They're gonna pick you! I know it."
There's also a quick back story. When we got there, we sat next to this old man named Barry who was decked out in Texas Longhorns gear. We naturally started talking to him since we had Texas in common. Barry says that every time he's been there (4 times total), the people next to him get picked. Crazy huh?
Well to make a long story short, I got picked (we were sitting next to Barry again), won my prize, won my game, won at the wheel but...
Albert writes that he ended up losing but he walked away with an indoor/outdoor Foosball table, 55" Sony 4K TV, Vision Charcoal Grill and Mark Jacobs purse set (for the wife lol).
I'm jealous right now because this is on my bucket list but now that I know there's a selection process, you all should be expecting me on The Price Is Right someday.
