The Luckiest Guy on The Price Is Right

Email  Print Print  

After writing about the guy who lost $600,000 on Deal or No Deal and then the woman scammed out of $400,000 by the Nigerian demi-god of confidence men, I thought it was only fair to tell a happier tale. This one is of a 19 year old named Taylor who has the day of his life with Drew Carey and The Price Is Right.

If that stroke of luck isn’t good enough, read this story about Michael Paul Larson learning the patterns of the board in Press Your Luck, an 80s game show, and walking out with a bunch of cash and prizes. First, the story is absolutely true. Next, read the amazing story about how he won $110,237 in cash and prizes back in June 1984 (that’s $229,782.08 in today’s dollars and back in an era where the prizes were much much smaller).

See? It’s not all bad news and schadenfreude here. :)

    I remember watching the documentary on Larson a long time ago. That Taylor kid had the birthday of his life! What luck!

  2. The kid looked like he deserved it. At least he was having a good time.

    When I was in college we did a trip to see the “New Price is Right” the short lived prime time version. One of the girls in our group was picked to come on down and she won the big showcase at the end as well. The prize was two mustang convertibles, two computers, two vacations…the total was somewhere around $50,000.
