Aaron Paul Returns To Game Show He Lost On 17 Years Ago
Before he was a foul-mouthed crystal meth dealer on Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul had humble beginnings on daytime television.
Back in 2000, when Paul would’ve been about 20, he got the chance to play on The Price Is Right – then hosted by Bob Barker.
Turns out, his knowledge of how much stuff costs was pretty great, and he managed to make it all the way to the show’s final game, the Showcase. And that’s where he lost – by overbidding on a sports car by a mere $132.
“I got to be honest,” Paul said on Wednesday’s episode of Corden’s Late Late Show. “When I did the show, I was struggling, had no money, and it was really a source of possible income. When I lost that damn car, I was so depressed for so long.”
So Corden gave him a chance at redemption.
In a sketch for, the pair ‘break into’ the Price Is Right’s studio and go through the show’s motions – being picked from the audience, the ‘Spin the Wheel’ segment, and finally, the Showcase.
The show’s current host Drew Carrey even drops in and agrees to help Paul redeem his former Showcase cock-up.
Unfortunately though – because this is a sketch and humour is key here – Paul loses. Again.
Maybe it’s time he gives up on the whole game show thing…
