I grew up worshiping The Price Is Right. My grandmother introduced me to Bob Barker and his harem of beauties when I was six, and I’ve been recording it everyday since.

Just one little problem. Nobody unrigged the machine before the game show started, causing one lucky fan to bank ten grand three times in a row. Producers quickly figured out the snafu, stopped the cameras, and explained what happened. Don’t worry though; the poor woman was handed a check for thirty grand in addition to her new score, a measly three thousand dollars.
