Vanna White helps ‘Price Is Right’ celebrate 50 years by reliving her time as a contestant

The classic game show The Price Is Right celebrated 50 years on Thursday, with a primetime special that was filled with vintage montages, classic prizes and celebrity pop-ins.

And one of those who stopped by was Vanna White, who was actually there to celebrate a previous appearance she made on the show. Because during one of the many video clip montages celebrating various highlights from the past five decades, the one showing memorable “come on down” moments ended with a young White making her way to Contestant's Row.

The appearance came in 1980, two years before she was hired on Wheel of Fortune, the job she currently has. And while she would go on to find her game show fortune eventually, her time on The Price Is Right was short lived.

“I didn't win a doggone thing,” White said of her time on the show, where she never even made it up onto the stage.
