Few have the stomach to cross that fine line between audience member and contestant, but Chris Magent made it work.
While visiting Los Angeles with his wife, parents and in-laws, Magent was selected to be a contestant on CBS’ “The Price is Right.”
He was interviewed alongside every other member of the audience — including his father-in-law, who watches the show every day and has always dreamed of appearing on the program.
In the end, it was Magent who was tapped as a contestant. He’s not sure exactly what it was that won the staff over.
“They’re looking for people who have energy, I think,” Magent said.
His episode airs at 11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 9.
On Saturday, Magnet and his wife, April Detar, will host a viewing party with about 70 family members and friends in attendance.
“I don’t think we’ll ever be on ‘The Price is Right’ again. I think this is it,” Detar said.
