We here at This Week in Game Shows feel the need to apologize to game show fans everywhere. It’s already the third season of The Price Is Right Thailand, and we JUST discovered it. There are slight differences between The Price Is RIght Thailand and its American counterpart, but it is every bit as entertaining if not more so, whether you understand the language or not. They have games. They have the wheel. The biggest difference is how comparatively calm the contestants in Thailand are when their names are called to play.
Back in America, Drew Carey kept The Price Is Right as American as possible by belittling one of the contestants. In Carey’s defense, this particular contestant had an absolutely terrible guess at what a set of jewelry cost. The contestant threw his hands up and shrugged his shoulders after missing the correct price by thousands of dollars, after which Carey suggested all of the man’s friends screen-grab the image of him shrugging his shoulders and text it to him.
On Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajak allowed a woman to tell an admittedly corny joke, then tried to make it seem like it was better than it was when the crowd barely laughed.
And on Family Feud, there was a family that has definitely NOT seen the Twilight movies. When asked what might be for sale at a store for vampires, they had some of the most far-fetched answers you could imagine. What’s easy to imagine: Steve Harvey’s reaction to these answers.
