A Freehold, N.J. man is now the biggest daytime winner in the history of CBS’ The Price Is Right, thanks to a win worth more than $250,000 on Monday.
Michael Stouber took home $262,742.97 in cash and prizes on Monday’s episode, which kicked off the popular game show’s annual Big Money Week. In addition to $202,000 in cash winnings, Stouber took home prizes including a trip to Fiji, a new car, and a diamond tennis bracelet.
Stouber’s cash win came during a game of Million Dollar Plinko, in which contestants can win up to $1 million. After guessing the prices of five items, Stouber found himself with four Plinko chips to play. He hit the $200,000 prize with his first chip, zeroed on his second, and hit for $1,000 apiece on his third and fourth chips.
Stouber continued adding to his total in The Price is Right’s showcase, ultimately surpassing the previous daytime record by almost $50,000. The previous record winning total belonged to contestant Christen Freeman, who took home $213,876 in cash and prizes during a Big Money Week in October 2016.
