Misleading Invitation For Price Is Right Tickets
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- Price is Right? Hmmm..
Two of my family members and I received tickets last week for todayâs 1PM show (March 10). We all took the day off with no pay , drove the two hours to attend the show.
My aunt is handicapped and she did not want to use her wheel chair for fear she would loose her chance to be on the price is right. She was in so much pain standing and waiting, but she assured us we would get on because we were so early.
All three of us arrived around 6:15 AM. for the 1PM show. The numbers on our tickets were under 290 and I understand around 300 seats available for each show, told to us by one of the coordinators giving instructions to the audience hopefuls.
WE had a small group of people, around 50 in front of us waiting already when we arrived. We were all excited until we realized that because we were not in a large group with matching t-shirts we were told to stand by the red rail, give up our seat and we were then placed on standby. The large groups had the priority even though they showed up a few hours later than us. It appeared that price is right over books more than 100 and maybe more for both shows today. I wondered if the other people got their tickets from another web site. It was upsetting to stand for a long period of time only to have others just show up and have priority, because they belonged to a large group. There were also individuals joining groups that already existed that they had just met in line just to get on the show, If the price is right wants large groups only, they should be more specific when advertising on their web site, instead of misleading people, hopefully this blog will shed light on the ones who want a chance on the show so you won't go through the disappointment and physical pain my family and many others did today.
Now you know how to be sure to get on, come late with a large crowd and wear matching shirts,, 25 people or more. We witnessed over 100 people in line that left disappointed and disgusted. Additionally, the web site says admission is to be 18 and over and a couple seated in line had a baby, also, the announcer asks if anyone in the crowd did not have two forms of ID or a SS card and about a third raised their hands, however the announcer told that same group that it was OK,everyone has thirty days, to obtain it. The web page is clear, I thought.
Good luck to you and yours
