Pair of Contestants Spin Well, Guess Poorly on 'The Price Is Right' (VIDEO)

Kayla wins on 'The Price Is Right'Today's 'Price Is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) came down to two contestants who each had luck on their side -- until they didn't. Both Kayla and Michael won the big wheel spin by hitting the magic "one dollar." Michael did it twice, earning $25,000 for two spins of the wheel. Kayla had won the Cover Up game with an exact total.

Of course, Kayla and Michael faced off in the Showcase Showdown, where neither of them did particularly well. Kayla bid $8,000 on a package that was worth $28,178, putting her off by more than $20,000. All seemed hopeless. Then host Drew Carey came to Michael, who bid $32,332 on a diner booth, a juke box, a BMW motorcycle, and a trip to Wales.

Lucky for Kayla, Michael was more than $10,000 over the package, which was worth $21,845, so she gets to go to both Miami and Paris. Sometimes, it's better to be lucky than good.

Spinning the wheel is the Showcase Showdown. The end game is called The Showcase

I went to the show with Kayla... she's my brother's girlfriend. You are so right Brad! Everyone knew the other guy (yes, that was a guy Brad! haha) was waay over! She didn't have a poor guess, it was a strategic one! Whoever wrote this article is a poor journalist and lucky to have a job! lol

I took her bid as just as if somebody had bid $1. I mean she didn't think about it in the slightest. As soon as she was able to bid she said it. I don't really think of it as being too much more than that. So yeah, I don't think of her bid as stupid but just strategic. She thought the other women went over, and guess what, she did.
