The Price Is Right Seeking Contestants for 50th Season
If you've ever wanted to "come on down," here's your chance.
The Price is Right will soon begin taping episodes for its 50th season, and the show's producers are looking for contestants to appear on the venerable game show.
There are several criteria you must meet before you can make your way down to Contestants' Row. Here are just a few:
- You shall not be related to anyone involved in the show's production or to anyone who works at a TV station that broadcasts the show
- You shall not have appeared on The Price Is Right within the last 10 years.
- You shall not have been a contestant on another game show within the last year.
- You shall not be a candidate for public office.
- You shall not have appeared on a total of four or more game shows in the last 10 years.
Another note: Contestants must pay their own way to Los Angeles to appear on the show. If you do get called to "come on down" and you win prizes, you must pay state and federal taxes on those prices as they are considered income.
