The Woz on The Price is Right this morning...

I was getting in my daily dose of TPiR when I noticed somebody in the VIP section (directly behind contestants row) that looked familar...

It was The Woz! They made him put "Steve" on his nametag, though... lol

How excited would he have been to win a vacation, or Ford Mondeo or something?

I would think, that if he appeared as a contestant, he would donate any winnings, to charity.

Whoops on the steve part. Was thinking steve jobs and why the woz would use steves name as a joke or something. Forgot his first name.

On why he wouldn't care, I assume he's loaded.

That area of the audience is the VIP section. Often at show open the camera will linger there for an extra second or two. Assuming he was there as a VIP then he was also almost certainly on the ineligible list. Generally speaking... once on that list, you never leave it.

I bet this is just the first appearance. It will be like a "Where's Waldo". Have to keep our eyes pealed for the next time he pops up!

I wish I was one of those people that didn't actually have to work all the time so I could go sit in the Price Is Right audience. Very cool that The Woz was spotted.

The problem with being loaded is that you worry about stuff that people who are not loaded could care less about because they are worried about not being loaded

If you look to the left of the female contestant you can see Steve's younger clone

Speaking of Woz . . .

Has anyone seen him on My Life on the D List? I couldn't get over how strange he is. He is obviously brilliant, but damn, such an odd personality. You can tell he lacks street smarts. He seems really awkward socially and VERY nerdy. No wonder Jobs was able to jerk him over like he did - I no longer blame him.
