CBS added a new twist to The Price is Right for Monday night's episode. Of course, this wasn't the first the show found itself in primetime with some celebrity assistance. The cast of SEAL Team and Seth Rogen previously joined host Drew Carey in past specials.
His latest guest was RuPaul from RuPaul's Drag Race. In his appearance, RuPaul wasn't in it for the money, as he was playing for charity instead. He donated all of his winnings to Planned Parenthood. Speaking with CBS San Francisco, Carey gave a little insight into what fans could expect coming in. He mentioned that when The Price Is Right airs in primetime, the prizes become more extravagant. "The prizes are just all pumped up. We have a bigger budget for prizes on the night time show. That adds a lot of excitement, and RuPaul is the celebrity guest, and that's the special surprise we have coming up. He will be playing along with the contestants for charity, and that makes it really exciting."
With RuPaul making his appearance, fans of both The Price is Right and RuPaul's Drag Race chimed in on the evening.
Drew Carey keeps calling RuPaul "Ru." Does he go by just "Ru?" #PriceIsRight— Martin Pinnau (@martinpinnau) May 12, 2020
RuPaul's purple suit is awesome. Someday I'm going to own a purple or pink suit. Some wild color. #PriceIsRight— Martin Pinnau (@martinpinnau) May 12, 2020
