The Price is Right is a wholesome television show enjoyed by all ages.
But like all game shows, the program relies on contestants, and not all participants keep things PG for daytime cable.
Two hopeful contestants in the audience on The Price is Right were spotted wearing shirts that read “Two in the Plinko, One in the Stinko” shirts on Thursday. This wouldn’t be a huge deal, except for the fact that the men were placed in the front row.
Again, most people probably wouldn’t notice, but because TPIR is a pre-taped, the crew blurred out the shirt in post production, then forced the guys to censor their shirts using a piece of black tape. It’s really hard to not notice something that’s blurred out on TV.
If you’re confused about whats going on, Plinko, is a beloved game on the show. Two in the Plinko, One in the Stinko is a play on the phrase “two in the pink, one in the stink.” We’ll let you poke around Google if you’re unaware and still curious, just be warned, it’s NSFW.
Unfortunately for TPIR, isn’t the first time someone wore the dirty shirt onto the show, and they’re easy to purchase on the internet.
So why are people doing this? Well, it’s actually host Drew Carey and Conan O’brien’s fault. Many years ago, Carey appeared on Conan’s show and during a bit making fun of Carey, he said that he was going to be the show’s most controversial host ever by launching a new game called, Two in the Plinko, One in the Stinko.
And there you have it. Years later, Carey is still dealing with the mess.
