Ryan! Ryan! Ryan!

The Price Is Right is full of delightfully enthusiastic contestants who scream at every noise, flash of light, and movement made on the popular game show.

But one particularly zealous contestant had every reason to lose his shit in Thursday's episode — because he completely destroyed his round of Plinko!

Ryan came ready to play — he performed a victory lap around the audience just from winning the chance to play a game. But after breaking the show's record for the most winnings in Plinko, Ryan understandably freaked the eff out.

The contestant won $10,000 after dropping his first chip, but he was just warming up. He hit the $10,000 slot again on his third AND fifth drops, breaking the record for the most money won in that challenge!

Yeah, we'd chant our own names too if we had that magic touch. Ch-ch-check out the incredible round (below)!

The Bachelorette

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres!

We've already been meeting Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay's contestants very unconventionally this season (episodes don't start airing until May 22) — but on Thursday, six guys vying for the Dallas attorney's heart stopped by Ellen as part of a group date!

First, Miz Lindsay sat down with the talk show host to dish on the first week of filming — and even spilled the beans on receiving her first kiss, saying:

"I have. He initiated. It was completely unexpected. I know this sounds cliché, but it totally swept me off my feet. It was good!"

And it turns out we meet the kisser in question on the group date, which consisted of a healthy competition of shirtless twerking! Count us IN!!

Chuck is probably best known for creating popular game shows, like the iconic The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game. Not to mention, Barris also claimed to have been a CIA assassin in his autobiography, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind. Crazy stuff.

Hollywood's certainly lost one hell of a firecracker! Rest in peace, bud.
