The Price is Right contestants make history with three-way tie
The Price is Right history was made on Monday's (Tuesday NZ Time) episode when a trio of contestants spun different combinations of $1 on the game show's colourful wheel.
The three contestants each landed on spaces adding up to $1 in a pair of spins during one of the show's showcase showdowns.
The game show famously awards contestants who earn $1 on the wheel without going over a US$1000 prize and a chance to spin again.
The Price is Right host Drew Carey pumped his fist in the air after the contestants achieved the first three-way $1 tie with different combinations in the show's history . In past instances of such a tie, at least one of the contestants landed exactly on the wheel's coveted $1 space.
The three contestants celebrated in the episode by wildly individually, then jumping up and down while embracing in a group hug.
The long-running CBS game show is airing its 45th season.
