I went to the Price is Right game show"

Updated on October 1, 2009

"I went to the Price is Right game show"

My two sisters and I got tickets,and went to the Price is Right game show.  we were so excited and was hoping that one of us, would be picked as a contestant;; it didn't happen. None of you will believe all the drama you go through, trying to be a contestant on the Price is Right.  If you try out for being a contestant, you have to be there at 12.00 noon.

We were there at 12.00, standing and waiting like everyone else; that was trying to be a contestant.  We waited and hour then some told us to go to another area and wait some more. One more move, and more waiting and standing, until it was 4.00 O'clock, and finally Jay showed up with his little minute man with his pen and clip board.  If Jay talked you, the man would write your name down; and this is  how contestant were chosen.

If Jay spoke to you and kept going, you knew right away, that you wouldn't be a contestant on the show.  After they chose all of their contestant, we were taken to where audience were to sit. What it's boils down to is the whole episode was a dud to us.  Everything was done by coaching, lights flashing applaud to the audience, so we could clap our hands every thing seem so made up, that it really took the fun out the show.

All this time thinking, it was more organized, how they picked the contestant for the show , when we finally get to the show after standing in line from 12.00 to 4.00 pm, we were inside and sitting down.  The technology of the show and all artificially enhancements made me lose interest in the show. The stage was so small, which you don't see because of how they use the cameras and you don't see the eleven or twelve people, that 's pushing the merchandise out there; because the camera don't show it because it would take away the glamour that they are trying to portray.

All I'm saying is ,only believe half of what you see;because  there are some thing that doesn't meet the eye.  I look at the Price is Right very seldom, and I see all the glitz and glitter isn't all that it should be, since I know their routine.  The contestant  really do win prizes, but it's not as glamourus as television makes it out be..

      When someone wins a car, how do they get it? To they just get the "pink slip" & drive it away from the car lot? Does the studio deliver it to the contestants' home? If so, how long does THAT take? What does the contestant have to pay for the prizes? If the prize is something they don't REALLY want, can they get cash instead? I would think T.P.I.R. could make a BIT of money from this, since the contestant wouldn't get FULL value for the prize. ANYWAY, IS that possible? What about trips? How do THEY work? Do the contestants go DIRECTLY from the show to the trip? Or do they go home, prepare for the trip, THEN go? What about multiple trips? Go to ONE, then come back, then the next? Or one location, then fly to the NEXT location? What about transportation TO the airport? How is THIS handled? I have SO many questions!

      Very interesting! I always wondered what goes on at these game shows. I guess this was a case of it being much better on t.v. than in real life. At least you got to go and satisfy your curiosity!

      You are so right, more often than not, things are never quite the way they seem. All that glamour and glitz usually hides what it really is.

      It sounds like a full long tiring day - and standing that long - wow! Ah, well this is a great reminder not to believe all we see on TV - because we do.

      Where is the show recorded?
