For the first time in the show’s nearly 38-year history, CBS’s THE PRICE IS RIGHT is conducting a national contestant search. THE PRICE IS RIGHT producers will interview contestant hopefuls in major U.S. markets. Three participants will be selected from each location to fly to Los Angeles and attend a taping of the legendary game show between September 2009 and February 2010. A bidder’s spot on Contestants’ Row will be guaranteed to one of the three participants, who will learn if they are selected to “come on down” when they hear their name called during the show’s taping.
