One of our favourite things about The Price is Right is that very little has changed over the decades. Kitschy ’70s theme tune? Yes. Ridiculously long handheld microphone? Check. Models smiling over pasta makers or toaster ovens that no one really wants to bid on because they know there’s a new car behind the next wall? Oh, you better believe it.
But it turns out some things have changed. They have male models now! High five for equality! Drew Carey is the host now. Ok, that’s fine we ‘spose (sorry but we’re Bob Barker ride-or-die). And on Monday, it wasn’t in its usual 11:00 a.m. time slot because they’re having a week-long holiday extravaganza. Oh and also Seth Rogen was there.
Yes, Seth joined the show at its temporary 8:00 p.m to guide contestants in their bids and to raise money for charity. And something tells us that, when it comes to bids, everything according to Seth Rogen is higher (*Insert The Price is Right *).
The Vancouver actor, comedian, and came from contestants row up on stage to raise money for HFC (Hilarity for Charity) to inspire change and raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease. For every dollar value won on the show, HFC would receive an equal amount. Nice! And as he stood next to winners and losers in all the fun games like “Cliff Hangers” (don’t let that yodeling man fall over the edge!) and “That’s Too Much” (what, no Plinko?!), our goofball with the giggle seemed to be a lucky charm.

During the game “Switch?,” two trips—one to Vail, Colorado and one to Vancouver—were offered and presented with supposed price tags. The contestant had to decide if the presented prices were correct or if he should switch them. Seth took the man by the arm and advised, “I’m from Vancouver. It’s very expensive there. Switch!” He’s not wrong—who wouldn’t pay extra to live next to Stanley Park? It’s a fairy tale city! Lo and behold, wouldn’t you know it, Seth was correct and the contestant won both trips! Huzzah!
Viewers, on the other hand, were a mix and . Some marveled at Seth’s , while others were confused at his presence there, worrying that maybe on whatever Seth has been selling lately… Look, all we know for sure is that we desperately need Seth to stand behind us, going, “Woah,” or “Hmm,” and “I don’t know,” at ALL our life choices.
In the end, in addition to raising over $69,000 for his charity, Seth got a chance to spin the big wheel AND he presented one of the final showcase showdowns! Okay that settles it, we need him on every Price is Right from now on.
