Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Talk show titan Jerry Springer is back in town after just a week away from the Strip to host a 21-day run of “The Price Is Right Live” to celebrate the show’s fifth anniversary at Bally’s starting today.
“All my life, I’ve been a huge fan of the classic television show and have always wanted to yell “come on down!” to the excited audience,” Jerry confessed. The anniversary shows continue through Nov. 20 and then resume Nov. 30 through Dec. 11 with Jerry. Each day he’s here, he also will award a cruise to Mexico to one lucky audience member.
“I am honored that ‘The Price Is Right Live’ chose me as the special guest host for its Bally’s stage show as it celebrates its fifth anniversary,” Jerry added. Each afternoon, Jerry will enlist audience members to play for a chance to win thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. He’ll feature the fan favorites Plinko, Cliff Hangers, The Big Wheel and Showcase.
In addition to his 21st season of “The Jerry Springer Show,” Jerry hosts the Game Show Network program “Baggage,” which premiered its third season in June and is now GSN’s highest-rated original program. Vegas DeLuxe posted a revealing interview with Jerry when he was here in recent weeks to host “America’s Got Talent Live” at Caesars Palace.
