Spinning the wheel on The Price is Right isn’t as simple as it might seem.

“It’s actually quite heavy,” said Brandon Lewis.

Lewis speaks from experience.

Lewis, an E-5 sonar technician stationed at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, was a contestant on The Price is Right last month. The show appears Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 10 a.m. on KIRO 7.

Lewis, 26, isn’t allowed to publicly reveal how he fared until after the show airs. Rumors have circulated on base about one of their own being a contestant on the show.

Lewis, who’s from Irvine, Calif., grew up interested in being on The Price is Right. His mother landed the tickets to get in the audience for the Jan. 7 taping. Lewis was part of a group of 18 that included family and friends, including two of his Navy pals.

Lewis said the show screened audience members the morning of the show, looking for excitable personalities. He said it was so loud in the studio that he couldn’t even hear his name being called.

“My name flips up on a card,” he said. “I’m staring at it (and thinking), ‘That’s my name! Holy crap, that’s my name!’”
