Snoop Dogg Wins $72,500 for Charity on ‘The Price Is Right’
Snoop Dogg won big during his appearance on the long-running CBS game show ‘The Price Is Right.’
The guest spot, which aired Monday morning (Jan. 2), was part of the show’s Celebrity Charity Week and saw the rapper acting as a good luck charm for several contestants. He also modeled prizes like a refurbished ’60′s convertible and read off the Showcase, which included a VIP package to see him perform live at the 2012 Voodoo Music Experience festival in New Orleans.
The real win for the ‘Doggstyle’ creator was for the Snoop Youth Football League. Snoop took home $72,585 for his non-profit after helping five out of six contestants win on games like Plinko and the Range Game, where the contestant came within $150 dollars of the correct price of a Harley Davidson motorcycle to win it thanks to Snoop’s advice.
“This is like one of my favorite shows,” Snoop revealed in a post-game show interview. “As a kid watching, coming home from school, even acting sick and didn’t want to go to school and just watching ‘The Price Is Right’ — just loving the way it was put together, the prizes, Bob Barker — the feeling is still there.”
Other celebs appearing on ‘The Price Is Right’ Celebrity Charity Week include Heidi Klum, Jenny McCarthy, Neil Patrick Harris and rocker Chris Daughtry.
