It's big cash, big prizes and big stakes when CBS Daytime presents the second annual "Big Money Week," where more than $2 million in cash prizes and big-ticket items are up for grabs on "The Price Is Right" and "Let's Make A Deal," Monday, Oct. 14, through Friday, Oct. 18, on CBS.
More than $2 million in cash and prizes will be available when "Big Money Week" comes to daytime's No. 1-rated series and the longest-running game show in television history, "The Price Is Right" (11 a.m.). Record-breaking prizes include the chance to win up to $500,000 at "Plinko," $250,000 at "Cliff Hangers" and $100,000 at "Half Off." Also, one contestant will get the opportunity to play "Golden Road" for a new Bentley and another will play "Triple Play" for a chance to win a new Audi, Range Rover and Corvette. In addition, contestants will have the chance to win vacations to exotic locales, including the Amazon, Hawaii, Amsterdam, Cyprus and a private island in the Seychelles.
Television host Carrie Keagan of VH-1's "Big Morning Buzz" struts her stuff as a guest model all week long.
As part of "Big Money Week," "Let's Make A Deal" will introduce a new game called "Big Shot." This is the first game ever on "Let's Make A Deal" that will allow contestants to decide how much money they want to play for. They can choose to spin the wheel for $2,500, $5,000, $10,000 or $30,000. As traders pick higher amounts, more "Zonks" will be added to the wheel, leaving it up to each contestant to decide between better odds or more money.
To kick off the week, "The Price Is Right" announcer George Gray and "Let's Make A Deal" announcer Jonathan Mangum will participate in a live video chat on CBS.com, Monday, Oct. 14 (5 p.m.). For more information, visit http://www.cbs.com/connect.
