‘Price is Right’ Contestants Think Apple’s iPhone 6 Costs $7,500

The popular game show “The Price is Right” has aired a New Years edition where contestants are asked about the price of an iPhone 6. You will be shocked when you hear the first two contestants’ guesses.

The full product being showcased was a 16GB iPhone 6 with a one year plan that includes unlimited talk and text and 4GB of data. The first contestant guessed $7,500, which seems a little steep even for Apple’s premium products. The second contestant guessed $7,501.

The third and fourth contestants guessed more respectable answers at $850 and $930, respectively. After all the contestants said their guesses, game show host Drew Carey said:

“I hope the marketing people at Apple are watching this.”

The actual retail price of the package was $1,969, but this is because of the one-year cellular plan that was included in the package.

It would be interesting to know if this video made a few of Apple’s marketing executives question the cost of the iPhone. It appears as though Apple could get away with charging a lot more for their flagship device.

    Stupid Americans.

  • Crosseyedmofo

    really?

  • BrodieTheDog

    No more stupid than your moronic comment. In fact you are setting a horrible example for Canadians. Good one goof boy.

  • Anon

    What. The. F….

  • Charlie Bravo

    Truth hurts don’t it…

  • BrodieTheDog

    What do you mean by that? If your referring to the stupidity of humanity in general then you are sadly mistaken. But if you are referring to our fellow Canadian making asses out of the rest of us with his bigoted uneducated coment, then I would have to agree.

  • Matt

    Makes you look pretty dumb, as clearly, the price is for the phone plus one year of phone plan. What a misleading title

  • mericuh_man

    Americans are fat and dumb

  • BrodieTheDog

    Yet another ignoramus. Lots of fat dumb people from all over.

  • Riddlemethis

    Au contraire. Canadians are seemingly pretty damn dumb, even more stupid than Americans. Canadians re-elected a drunken Premier (Gordon Campbell) re-elected a shoe diva and former radio talk show host Christy Clark, they re-elected Mayor Robinson in Vancouver, they support a crackhead Mayor in Toronto (now on leave due to medical issues), and they elected and continue to support a dictator Prime Minister who people say has a twin brother in Russia as president, but there is a bitter rivalry between the two.

  • Charlie Bravo

    Clearly you haven’t had the pleasure to travel extensively throughout the USA. His comment is spot on for the most part. And it doesn’t matter if your dealing with the poor or the rich, they’re equal in their lack of… let’s say abilities (to be nice).

  • FragilityG4

    I’ve traveled to many spots of the United states and all these negative comments couldn’t be further from the truth. Let’s stop with the generalizations please. If you want to be realistic there are plenty of “fat and dumb” Canadians too and before you continue on this ridiculous discussion with a “there’s more fat and dumb Americans” rebuttal let I remind you they have ten times the population.

  • BrodieTheDog

    You need to check yourself. I’ve traveled the U.S. a hell of a lot. I’ve been in all 50 states over the years. Lived in numerous U.S. cities. Yes, I’ve met plenty of stupid fat ignorant Americans. I can say the same thing about plenty of Canadians and many other people of all nationalities as well. Like what I’m experiencing here. I’ve also met many very friendly, kind, helpful, intelligent, hard working, super sexy and amazing Americans. Again, I can say the same things about Canadians. So before you run off at the mouth, check yourself and look around you. And if you find that you are still prejudice. Realize this, just because you feel that way does not make it true. And I’m my opinion I think you could practice a little compassion and tolerance toward your fellow men and women of this planet that you are part of.

  • Tim

    you know, I bet those two would actually pay $7500 and $7501 for a 16GB iPhone and 1 year service.

  • Crosseyedmofo

    preachy canadians arent embarrassing at all

  • FragilityG4

    A dictator? Wow make yourself look stupid.

  • xxxJDxxx

    LOL @ the assertion that this made Apple executives question their pricing. As if they haven’t researched it beyond the level of what some idiot on the Price is Right thinks.
