Thrilled Pennsylvania man sets record on 'Price is Right'

Associated Press

A Pennsylvania man is in the money after setting a record on "The Price is Right" game show.

Ryan Belz, of Millerton, was wildly enthusiastic just to get called on stage in the episode that aired Thursday. His unbridled excitement only mounted from there.

In the end, the Penn State graduate set the all-time record in winning $31,500.

Plinko is one of the show's most popular games. Contestants have to guess correct digits in the prices of prizes to earn "Plinko" chips.

They take the chips to the top of a game board and drop them into a slot, where they travel down to reveal winning amounts.

Belz told TMZ in an interview after the big win that he figured his job at Target would help him estimate the prices.
