    MY FAVORITE games are ‘TEN CHANCES’ (where contestants make me sick when they don’t know that the prices ALL end in a ZERO! HELLO! I guess they play so infrequently so that most contestants will be lame and not know this simple rule!) and the deal or no deal tribute game, ‘HALF OFF’ in which you pick a box after having chances to get down to just 2. I always hate when it is ‘RAT RACE’ instead of ‘TEN CHANCES’!

    IF DREW CAREY leaves, and I think he is okay as host, not great, they will probably put a black comic on as host, because that is the par for the course now a days, they should pick KEVIN HART or CHRIS ROCK or someone.

    I have lot of unanswered questions on why people still can’t stand The Price is Right for all the very bad things they went through. Most importantly I really don’t know who’s responsible for setting up pricing games on every episode to make contestants harder and harder these days because the games can become your best friend or your worst enemy and also on the Showcase round even though it makes a contestant make or break them and they have to be very careful on what they’re bidding on and not to go over from the actual retail price and the best to do that is by using math if a single Showcase has more than just two prizes.

    I usually do not watch The Price is Right TV show because I do not like the bidding procedure. It would be fairer to have ‘silent’ bidding – in writing from contestants. There is nothing fair about bidding $1.00 over someone else.

      Couldn’t agree more. The contestants on the show are nothing a bunch of brain dead idiots and if they don’t watch Price is Right on a daily basis, WHAT GIVES? Sometimes they don’t listen to you when they watched the show but the real problem contestants are not very smart is when the player gets help from the audience because it’s always a sign of BAD KARMA like it’s just one versus the world. If a contestant is having a really bad day when someone ends up losing a pricing game and/or in the Showcase round then don’t watch Price is Right ever again. :-(

      BTW, the real reason contestants bid $1 more over someone else is always CHEATING not STRATEGY. I really wanted to see a player get beat up, punched or get hurt by another player if they do that because you don’t want a contestant hurt his or her feelings.

    Here’s my Price is Right WISH LIST: No more guest models. Bring back the three model rotation. Bidders Row needs a new makeover if contestants gets confused on what Drew Carey is saying. Models needs to stop waving on camera. Editors better not cut to the models during pricing games if they do something stupid. Contestants must go with their gut instincts instead of looking at the crowd. Be very careful on what they’re bidding in the Showcase round if they don’t want to go over on their bids. Contestants better not say HELLO to their family nor friends during the Showcase Showdown. George Gray the announcer better stop saying that stupid question “do you know that closed captioning is paid for in part by the following?”. Contestants better not bid $1 more than the other person bidding because it’s CHEATING not STRATEGY. A contestant must follow the rules during pricing games as well as if someone spun a dollar on the big wheel and gets a bonus spin. Change the Double Showcase Winner amount from $250 or less to $500 or less because within $250 or less away from the actual retail price of his or her Showcase is NOT ENOUGH. Rachel Reynolds the model better stop smiling on camera if her cheeks turns red all the time. Drew Carey better stop wasting everybody’s time because he talks too much on every episode he hosted. NO MORE MALE MODELS.

        You’re wrong and you should know better than that. There’s still a million of unanswered questions why The Price is Right isn’t much of a success other than being a failure. Social media continues to raise questions as well and the entire Price is Right crew still can’t find a way to fix the show if no one listening because they continue to be ignored by non-Price is Right fans especially the execs at CBS Daytime. I still don’t know how long Drew Carey will continue to host the show depending on his contract and if they don’t do that, TV’s longest running game show will definitely end sometime in the near future ’cause no one can’t replace Drew Carey even if Rosie O’Donnell or someone else should have been a great fit to replace Bob Barker and NOT Drew Carey. :-(
