Kid wins Mustang on Price is Right

Some young man, approx, 20 years old, wins a grabber orange Mustang V6 coupe on the Price is Right. He won it with the exact amount on the first try. He did not need second chance or any coaching. He was so stoaked, that he threw the $1000 he also won into the audience (presumably to a friend).

What a lucky kid. Hopefully he will be able to pa the 20% value for taxes...approx. $4200.

I saw that. He just couldn't lose. He also won $25000 on the spin-off and won the show case. It was his day. He won something like $79000 all together.

yes he won the showcase, which inculded a Dodge Charger (6 cylinder from what it looked like). On the spin he got the $1.00 twice, which gave him the $25K cash. He scored big time.

Are you catching up on all of the soaps too?

I didn't even know that show was on anymore. Must be on during working hours.

It is amazing to see what is on TV while all you working folks are at work. I am on liezure time right now. I grant, it will likely chang ein the next two weeks, but for now, I am enjoying this time.

Oh yeah, Pete, Bob Barker is no longer the host, it is Drew Carey.

Enjoy the time off. I am sure it is well deserved.
I grew up with Bob. Drew Carey was great in his show and "who's line is it anyway"

Is this the kid you are referring to?


I felt good for him, being his 19th birthday and all. Not a bad appearance on The Price is Right.

The least he could have done was show a little excitement.

Nobody is that lucky. Sounds like it was "fixed" for him to win...

Never mind that he won a scooter, a trip to Boston, $26,000 in cash, a grabber orange Ford Mustang and a Dodge Charger. Did you see that the Mustang came with the deluxe all-weather floormats? What a lucky guy!
