The Price is Right at Night with RuPaul is a primetime special where the multiple Emmy Award winner, television host, actor and model RuPaul will play alongside contestants for his charity called Planned Parenthood.
Premise[edit | edit source]
In this special, RuPaul is playing for his charity called Planned Parenthood where it provided much needed medical support to communities for over 100 years. As with the Celebrity Week Shows, regular players play for cash and prizes as usual, but when a pricing game is won, the value of the prizes won is put into an accumulating bank equaling a cash donation to the charity. In the second Showcase Showdown, the celebrity takes one spin at the Big Wheel, multiplying the Space hit by 10 (i.e. $500-$10,000).
Controversy[edit | edit source]
This episode has also sparked a bit of controversy on social mediadue to mainly the charity itself by under intense scrutiny from pro-life activists (namely conservatives and Republicans) concerning some of the birth control methods it provides patients, particularly abortions. And many of these advocates took to Twitter to share their displeasure with the show's donation.
