In thirty-eight years, The Price is Right never had a contestant guess the exact value of prizes in the Showcase showdown. Until Terry Kniess outsmarted everyone — and changed everything.
One man, Terry Kneiss, watched a lot of The Price is Right. And he noticed something: many of the same products were used over and over. So he did his homework, and, in collaboration with his wife, memorized the values of as many items as he could. Then he went on the show, and proceeded to play while confirming his math via hand signals with his wife, who was in the audience. And when Kneiss got to the Showcase…his bid was accurate, to the dollar. This has not happened in the 38-year history of the show.

Drew Carey didn't seem that excited.

Poor girl. She had an awesome bid that would have won her both showcases any other day...

Edit: After reading the article I understand why Drew was upset. Unnecessarily long article though.

This wasn't the Vegas strip, where they escort people out into the desert if they try to pull stuff like that. What those folks did was completely on the up-and-up, so congratulations to them.

I don't get this. This thread is the second time recently I've hear about this win. The first time was I believe on the Dean Blundell Show on the radio (Edge 102.1, Toronto), sometime in the last week. But the win took place in Dec 2008? Why all the press now????

Holy crap... this problem is bigger than just embedded flash. I can't see any of the Price is Right vids on Youtube (black rectangle this time) ... but other Youtube vids are okay.

How strange izzat?!?! :confused:

Edit: used Adobe's nuclear-powered Flash uninstaller and reinstalled... can see the vid above now. :D
