Aaron Paul Going Wild On The Price Is Right — And 12 Other Times Celebs Appeared On Game Shows Before They Were Famous!

The price is wrong, b*tch!

That's what we assume Aaron Paul was thinking as a contestant on The Price Is Right way back in 2000.

Eight whole years before he starred in the hit series Breaking Bad, Paul was just another struggling actor living off his Juicy Fruit residuals when he got to rub elbows with Bob Barker on the popular game show.

The enthusiastic contestant didn't win big that night, but near a decade later he would win the role of a lifetime (and eventually an Emmy…), so we think he's okay with how things turned out!

It may not seem like it, but Billy Eichner has been loitering around New York City streets and filming himself for FOUR YEARS now… and Season 5 is already around the corner.

But what isn't just around the corner is Halloween — aka TODAY — a special day that just so happens to be a fave amongst the Billy on the Street team.

What is… the best Jeopardy question of all time?

That answer was clear on Wednesday's episode of the long running game show, when host Alex Trebek spit a few lines from Drake and Future's Jumpman!

The lyrical moment came when the 76-year-old read the "Musical Acts" for $400 clue to the three contestants, saying:

"This Canadian rapped, 'Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman, them boys up to somethin', uh uh uh I think I need some Robitussin.'"

Of course, the answer is "Who is Drake" — but the real prize was hearing the popular lyric in Trebek's signature dry delivery:
