The Price Is Right studio was so noisy from the enthusiastic crowd, that when Kevin Tesar was summoned to “Come on down!” during a taping this winter, he didn’t even hear of his fortune. It wasn’t until he saw his name on a white poster board held up by a stagehand that Kevin realized he had been chosen from the audience as a contestant for the famed game show’s front row.
“When they call your name, your heart drops. I just went irate down the aisle,” Kevin said.
The Prairie du Chien resident attended the January taping with his two sons, Kirk and Kristian, as part of a fun, four-day trip the three took to Los Angeles. The show, on which Kevin makes his small screen debut, is expected to air on CBS on Monday, June 23, at 10 a.m. central standard time.
