Synopsis by Ben Schultz

This documentary profiles Ted Slauson, a teacher who became notorious for helping a contestant guess perfectly on a 2008 episode of the long-running game show The Price Is Right. Interviews with Slauson reveal how he became fascinated with the show in the early 1970s, which drove him to memorize the prices of products. Directed by CJ Wallis, the film features appearances by longtime host Bob Barker, show producer Roger Dobkowitz, Drew Carey, and Kevin Pollak.
