The unthinkable happened this morning on The Price Is Right

Three straight contestants spun a dollar on the Big Wheel during the Showcase Showdown. What’s even more unlikely is that each of them had to use both spins to do it and fell on completely different numbers. Host Drew Carey seemed baffled.




Here’s the full clip:

No one on Twitter—at least the portion that gets to watch morning game shows—has ever seen anything like it.

So what happened? Uproxx reports

They each received $1,000 and a bonus spin to determine who would advance. That honor went to Manfred, who also won a cruise and a car during the final Showcase. He’s either the most talented man in America, or the luckiest. Unlike Cathryn, who’s clearly the best dancer.

What a time to be alive.
