Come on down! Hilarious Bloopers [RealMedia], noteworthy contestants, and some curious still clips from that icon of game shows, The Price is Right.
  • The most infamous one of all (sadly no video) On a related note, I heard tell of a "wheel of fortune" contestant who had the entire puzzle solved in front of him, all he had to do was read it: sadly he pronounced an area of water near New England "martha's VINE-yard" and was ruled wrong. Not sure if it's true but I can see it happening...
  • There's something curiously appealing to me about the washed out color in those 1970s tv still clips. I just made "Bob's very first welcome from 1972!" my desktop background.
