"The Price Is Right" launched Celebrity Week on Monday with none other than Snoop Dogg (who also happens to be a longtime fan of the show).
Every day this week, different celebs will appear on "Price is Right" to play along with the contestants to rack up a donation for a charity of the star's choosing. (Tuesday's guest was Jenny McCarthy.)
On Monday, Snoop was playing for his youth football league, which mentors inner-city kids between the ages of 5 and 13 while giving them the opportunity to play the sport, and he ended up bringing in $72,585. As you can see in the clip below, this is clearly a man who knows how to play the game:
And better yet, he's not a bad announcer, either:
Rounding out this week is Neil Patrick Harris on Wednesday, Chris Daughtry on Thursday and Heidi Klum on Friday.
Although we must say, Snoop's set the bar for celebrity hosting pretty high.
There aint nobody alive who aint got no skeletons in the closet ! That said, i dont see why certain people always have 2 be so negative. Snopp did a very good job. All the ones that talked bad about him are player haters and jealous. Get a life and take your negative ass coments some where else. nuff said !!!!!
Snoop has a lot of class and is multi-talented.
He was a great guest. I laughed hysterically. It was great fun.
There is too much hate about a program that decided to throw a couple of dollars to worthwhile organizations. Please be kind and stop being so hateful in your comments. Write Snoop a letter with your name and address and tell him how you feel about him, but enough with the added hate in the world. It makes you guys seem like hypocrites.
I would have rather seen Jenny McCarthy "Come On Down!" on Tuesday. Guess I'll have to DVR Heidi on Friday now...
Watching Snoop on TPIR was a lot ot fun. Some of you people need to get a life beyond judging others. Geesh.
Could not Snoop just have written out a check for $72,585 ????
He already pours a great deal of money, and more importantly time, into his charity. But raising money from a show that provides entertainment, already turns a profit, and pours more money to winners than one can handle is not a bad thing in my eyes. It also adds exposure to his charity, allowing others to donate if they feel the need. Why is it when someone does a good thing in this crumbling society, people feel the need to talk them down, when we all know it's soley for the purpose of allaying your own guilt at not doing enough. Get over it.
Great, just what we need. Something that actually makes the Kardashians look smart.
Snoop did great. I loved it.
look your right i have to remember the positive of this show he raised cash flow for his charity which is a plus i want to say no matter what he does in his personal life he has made a difference in some kids life by doing his charity work so i was wrong and i am admitting it ok but at the same time im not saying him smoking is bad at all if i had the chance to get it for medical reasons i would he is lucky to get were he is in life
Well America we found a way to ruin television forever thanks a lot for putting potthead on tv
Oh shut up. America is full of other nonsense that can ruin tv. Heck some of the people on the show and who work behind the scene as well as who is in the audience may have smoked pot. Pot calling the kettle black
Take a deep breath. If a pot smoker hosting a game show for charity is what you think has "ruined television forever" you have an amazingly short memory or absolutely no idea of what has been put on television regularly over the past fifty years or so.
Totally fun! Snoop is such an entertainer, and uses his role as a street thug so well, til it's just so funny to watch him. He did an amazing job! That was the only time I've watched that show since the Barker years. WAY TO GO SNOOP!!
@Bob You-Banks Barker dug his grave on his show years ago when he decided to play 'hanky panky' with one of the models on the show instead of behaving like an actual human being!
Bob Barker is rolling over in his grave.
Bob Barker isn't dead, he's alive and well
More like a GANG BANGER on The Price is Right.
1991 called and wanted their word back
Stuff like this makes me want to dig up President Lincoln and kick his AZZ!
Bet the car Snoop helped win was packing 10 "keys" instead of one.
I'm fairly certain Snoop was the HIGHEST bidder on the show.
Neil Patrick Harris? The showgirls will run him off the set after he tries to brand one of them!
With Neil, I think the back-stage BOYS have more to worry about.
That never gets old. Really.
I'm so glad I missed it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought they said celebrities...?
If he had his own gameshow I would watch it.
I luv him! He prob. watches the show in his Steelers shed. Dayamn!
de got 50 cent. (n hadda split it 6 way)
N wen de sho wuz iva, snoop's possee rob the crowd-how much monee did de get? OVA/UNDA
DOLLA THREE EIGHTEE
Amazing how a small time gangster from Long Beach, CA has gone from obscurity to fame and fortune.
Some of you folks need to relax. He was pretty entertaining and interacted well with the contestants. Calm down.
Snoop Dogg is still da man!
Pot heads don't interest me.
This is TOTALLY cover-page worthy, CNN. Thanks!
I see @troll that you have been crying out for some attention from me all day. What's on your mind that you haven't already said to me?
Who wins the Showcase Showdown?
Snoop did very well. Great job announcing and I thought he was really kind. I enjoyed watching.
I thought he was going to say "It is a 1962 African-American!"
you know your career may be over IF......
COME ON DOWN and schmoke sum weed.
There goes the neighborhood!
I changed the channel when he showed up on the show. Not interested in watching anything that dirtbag is on.
If every dirt bag in America raised $72k for kids sports teams (not to mention coached them) the world would be a 10x better place. Long live dirt bags!
SNOOP D, O DOUBLE GIZZLE....
Price is wrong, beeyoch!
Too funny, the Snoop Dog on the "Price is Right!"
I would much rather watch Snoop than that moron Jenny McCarthy. Snoop seems like a decent guy and Jenny M. seems like a total loser idiot who needs to go away and shut up.
But she was playing for charity! Don't you want to support People for the Ethical Treatment of Deadly Viruses?
What a clown
OMG! Well, who won?
The lady who won the trip to Napa was the best. Even Snoop wanted to see her t*tties.
Snooooop!!! Yeah...love him...he is awesome.
I got to watch the show yesterday as well and Snoop did a great job and looked like he was having fun! I'm glad his foundation was able to get a lot of money to help the kids.
This dude is hoping for a bite from BV so he can slap slap slap on out
Is that what this is all about? You want her to come out? You miss her? Love hate relationship.
I think you'd be surprised!
Fake comments like that won't bring her out of hiding.
Stop trolling. ur not fooling any1. u r not the really BV
He is my brother.
chilipepper, stop hatin. He is a celeb because SOCIETY has made him one with alot of hit rap songs. Like it or not, he is famous and EARNED it.
"with alot of hit rap songs"
A "hit" rap song is like being the smartest ret ard.
Having yesterday off, I actually got to watch this. Snoop was pretty funny and seemed to genuinely be enjoying himself. Can't wait for Heidi Klum on Fri... I'll have to DVR it!
He was REALLY good! On my day off, I got to watch it.
Yeah, I saw him on there. He did a great job with the contestants.
He knows the exact price of an ounce of Purple Haze
Snoop could eyeball a oz from outer space!
America, what a country. Even murderers can be stars.
