"Big Money Week" Coming Soon to The Price Is Right

The record for the most won on the daytime version of The Price Is Right stands at $147,517, held by Vickyann Sadowski in 2006. That impressive record might be broken soon during "Big Money Week" on The Price Is Right. Host Drew Carey made the announcement on Monday during The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. During the five-day event, contestants will have a crack at winning luxurious and expensive prizes worth over one million dollars in value. According to a sneak preview clip, Plinko will have a top prize of $500,000 and the Punch-A-Bunch top prize will be multiplied by ten to a tantalizing $250,000.

Although this is not the first time the long-running CBS daytime game show has done a "Big Money Week", this is the first time Price has held a week like this of epic proportions. To my recollection, the last game show to date to hold a special week that was similar to a "Big Money Week" was Let's Make a Deal in February. During the two weeks, the CBS revival celebrated the show's 50th anniversary by bringing back the Super Deal temporarily, giving contestants chance to win what amounted to around $73,000 in cash and prizes. 

At any rate, this will be a week that you will not want to miss! No news yet on when the week of special shows will air, but keep your eyes peeled.
