The dark side of winning 'The Price Is Right' Published: August 20, 2013

There is no such thing as a free lunch...or an all-expenses paid trip to Acapulco. That’s what “The Price Is Right” contestant Andrea Schwartz found out when she scored $33,000 worth of prizes on the popular television game show, according to Yahoo Shine.

Schwartz told Yahoo Shine that contestants won’t quite know what hit them if they make it on to the show.

“It’s a whirlwind, they kind of shove you around, and then you are suddenly in the parking lot, saying, ‘I just played Plinko.’”

Yahoo Shine reports you also might not be prepared for the hefty taxes you’ll owe before picking up your prize, either.
