Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The "Price Is Right," which has had some big firsts recently, is going to allow children to compete for the first time in a special show.

Admittedly, there was definitely a point in our lives between the ages of 8 and 14 where we would have been so so pumped to compete, but we're guessing we wouldn't have done well. Children at this age don't have a lot of experience with pricing things like home theater systems or jet skis or trips to Rome.

So parents will join them to whisper guesses in their ears and let them drop the Plinko chips, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Which isn't all that cool. Unless of course, "skateboard rabbi" has a kid.

The episode hasn't been taped yet, but it will air sometime in mid-April.
