Reality TV Stars Face New Challenge: The Price Is Right!

Price

Popular contestants from Survivor, Big Brother and The Amazing race have an entirely new set of challenges awaiting them as they move from jungles of various types to the stage of The Price is Right.

Select reality stars from the three shows will play alongside superfans of their respective shows on three special primetime  editions of The Price is Right from May 23-25 – and in front of the hosts of their respective shows to boot.

Should be fun. Follow the jump for details.
