To get tickets you simply call the show and request them. Tickets for individuals, couples and small groups are not guaranteed, they are on a first come first served basis. Groups of 15 to 20 people can get seating guarantees by calling the group booking department.
Once you have your tickets, you have a chance to get on the show. The contestants that get up on stage and actually play the game are chosen from the line waiting to get in the audience. Sometime before going in a production assistant will pull people out of line to go meet with producers. The contestants are chosen before the show and called up as the show is taping.
What producers want to see from contestants is a lot of enthusiasm. They are looking for dynamic and outgoing individuals who are not afraid to show their excitement or emotion when called to the stage, win or lose. The show typically tends to choose more women than men for that reason. The show also chooses many college kids, people in uniform and cute girls.
You must be over 18 to get on the Price is Right or into the audience, children are not allowed to attend the taping.
