‘Price Is Right at Night’ dropped a huge surprise for its fans in Monday night’s episode. Popular for ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ Emmy Award-winning drag queen, actor and singer RuPaul came to the show to play for charity and donated all his winnings to Planned Parenthood.
This is not the first time celebrities made an appearance on the show. The cast of 'SEAL Team' and Seth Rogan were part of the show along with host Drew Carey earlier. Shedding light on the format of the show, the host told CBS Local, “It’s the same show. I’m not wearing a tux and the games are the same.”
He added, “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 play along with the contestants for charity and that makes it really exciting.”
The official Twitter account teased fans to come "shimmy and shake" with RuPaul and they can't keep calm. "I'm so glad @RuPaul survived his appearance on the #PriceIsRight," one said and another wrote, "The real question is, why isn’t ‘Price is Right’ on with @RuPaul EVERY night? #PriceIsRight #RuPaul #PriceIsRightAtNight." Another posted, "$97,266 donated to Planned Parenthood thanks to RuPaul and #PriceIsRight."
"Can we get the #PriceIsRight with @RuPaul every week night!? I am loving this. #priceisrightatnight." Another posted, "I AM LIVING FOR @RuPaul and "reading is fundamental" shirt girl talking in weird harmonious unison. #PriceIsRight."
One wrote, "It's awesome when a celebrity on #PriceIsRight, like @RuPaul, looks excited to be there and looks to be having so much fun. Really fun episode so far."
One said, "I need @RuPaul energy in my lifeeeeee !!! #PriceIsRight," and another posted, "#PriceIsRight at Night with @RuPaul is so fun. they should do an episode with all drag queens from #DragRace like they did with the Survivor cast. @PriceIsRight." One said, "Uhhh petition for @RuPaul to be the new host of @PriceIsRight #yasqueen #rupaul #priceisright."
Talking about RuPaul's wardrobe, one fan said, "RuPaul's purple suit is awesome. Someday I'm going to own a purple or pink suit. Some wild color. #PriceIsRight." One wondered if he is known as Ru. "Drew Carey keeps calling RuPaul "Ru." Does he go by just "Ru?" #PriceIsRight."
Another fan posted, "I only know of RuPaul cause there's Murder Trivia questions about his drag race #PriceIsRight."
