The Price is Right...Exact Actually

So if you know me well, you know that there's one thing that I hold very close to my heart: The Price is Right. That is, until Drew Carey horrendously made the impossible look impossible by making a piss-poor attempt at taking over for the legend that is Bob Barker.

But horrible hosting aside, The Price is Right is still the best game show in history. And something glorious happened this week on the show: a perfect Showcase bid.

If you're a fan of the show, you may be thinking...THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE! It's happened once before. Well, perhaps they illegally gave some inside information to a contestant to boost ratings but I had faith that this was genuine.

See for yourself:



Now, from doing a little research, I've learned 3 things:

1. There are people out there that are wayyyyyyyyy more into The Price is Right than imaginable (See this website)...and it seems that they're referred to as "LFaT"s (Loyal Friend and True)

2. There's some underground muttering about this exact bid. Apparently one of these so-called LFaTs was helping out these contestants on this show, taped about a month ago (perfectly acceptable in the game - contestants always look to the crowd for help). And apparently there was a long delay between the contestant bids and the revealing of the prices, likely due to suspicion over the exact bid, which is probably why Drew Carey seems practically emotionless when announcing it (BOO!)

3. I just spent way too much time coming to those conclusions.
