When you are called down to the contestant’s row, you are asked to bid on an item or set of items. If you are the closest to the actual price without going over, you get to move on in the game show.

The show’s announcer, George Gray, and model Rachel Reynolds presented a spin air bike that was equipped with vertical knee raise.

Oftentimes, contestants will bid $1 or more than the current highest bid just to try and get on stage with Drew Carey. Other times, the contestant might bid the exact price of something. Though it doesn’t happen often, Drew Carey will say that the person had “an out-of-body experience.”

Whatever Nicholas had going on was the opposite of that though. He started the bidding on the spin air bike at $1 million. The Price Is Right host asked, “Seriously?”

Nicholas confirmed that he meant to bid $1 million, stating that the equipment looked expensive. The other two contestants made more realistic bids on the equipment, with one person bidding $2,400 and the other bidding $1,500. The $1,500 bid won.

Viewers Can’t Believe Such A ‘Disrespectful’ Move

Viewers took the discussion of Nicholas’s crazy bid to Reddit. One person said that some contestants might intentionally overbid. However, other individuals thought it wasn’t considerate of other people trying to play the game.

“I just see it as disrespectful to everyone there, those in the audience who didn’t get picked and all the people on the contestant row they decided to apparently help,” one person wrote, “You’re only wasting your own time and chances of getting the bid.”
