BILLINGS - Clever phrases peppered the matching shirts. "Keep Calm & Come On Down" and "Where's Drew?" were just a few shirts, complete with the iconic price tag name tag.
It was the first time the live Price Is Right made it's way to the 406.
Crews packed the show's 85 favorite games including Plinko, Cliffhanger, and Punch A Bunch; giving anyone in the audience a chance to win trips, cars, and money.
And to answer your next question, no, Drew Carey did not appear at Monday's game show. Todd Newton, Emmy Award winning host, delighted the crowd with his charismatic approach, essentially diminishing any thought that the show needed Drew.
But the crowd did their part and kept their volume up to 11, "oooh'ing" and "ahhh'ing" at prizes up for bidding, ready for their chance to make it to Contestants' Row.
The show itself began ten years ago from a theater in Reno, Nevada. As the popularity of the show rose, so did the number of shows. Now the Price Is Right is scheduled for 60 cities in 12 weeks.
