** At the start of taping for Season 37, the Big Wheel was refurbished for HD and adopted a [[SarcasmMode tasteful]] new color scheme with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0of1dG6Ibc green borders, violet walls and dark purple spaces]]. Its design seemed like it was meant to go with the previous season's set;[[note]](the one with the circled diamonds and the violet turntable walls, which was revised for the primetime specials and Season 37 with a tile motif and blue walls instead)[[/note]] when Drew first saw it, he did ''not'' like it. In the first episode it was used, he shrugged it off by claiming that it was "accidentally painted purple", and even called it "the big ugly wheel" after someone won $1,000.
*** After five shows with the Purple Wheel, it was replaced by a StuntDouble from the Las Vegas ''Price Is Right Live!'' casino show (which was essentially a smaller, "bootleg" version of the old wheel) for the sixth taping while the wheel was re-painted again. The resulting design returned to the black spaces, along with new orange walls and carpeting with the same patterns as the new doors. All of the resulting episodes were moved later into the season, making Drew's "accidentally painted purple" remark an unintentional LampshadeHanging.

** At the start of taping for Season 37, the Big Wheel was refurbished for HD and gained a [[SarcasmMode tasteful]] new color scheme with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0of1dG6Ibc green borders, violet walls and dark purple spaces]]. Its design appeared to go with the previous season's set (the one with the violet turntable walls and the diamond patterns), which got switched out for the new "squares" design teased by the recent Million Dollar Spectaculars. When Drew first saw it, he did ''not'' like it. In the first episode it was used, he shrugged it off by claiming that it was "accidentally painted purple", and even called it "the big ugly wheel" after someone won $1,000.

** All three million-dollar winners in the Million-Dollar Spectaculars were filmed carrying one in a promo.
* GoneHorriblyRight: After the Carey-hosted Million-Dollar Spectaculars decreased the difficulty of winning the million dollars, this happened an unprecedented ''three times'' which led to them being canned.

** In 2016, the show paid tribute to ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'''s "Spot the Mistakes" episodes by having hidden gags and abnormalities throughout the show, and inviting viewers to document them to enter a contest for a trip to Costa Rica. Among the more noticable ones were staff and cameras getting into shots, Money Game's board having boat symbols despite being played for a car, Cliff Hangers being literally renamed "Yodely Guy" (and climbing backwards), commercial break bumpers using logos from previous (and incorrect) holiday specials, the wheel's carpet going awol during the second Showcase Showdown, and ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'' footage playing on a laptop whilst promoting ''Price is Right'' episodes on CBS's website.

** If the first two contestants go over $1 in the Showcase Showdown, the third player automatically advances. Said contestant will take a spin anyway for the dollar and the chance to earn extra money.

** If the first two contestants go over $1 in the Showcase Showdown, the third player automatically advances. As the contestant order is sorted by money won during their pricing games, this rewards the third player for their earlier success. Said contestant will take a spin anyway for the dollar and the chance to earn extra money.

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The March 25, 2016 "College Rivalries" edition (in honor of the NCAA basketball tournament) featured a twist to the standard format: each pair of players in Contestant's Row represented a college sports rivalry. When a contestant won a bid, the other contestant in the rivalry pair was eliminated and sent ''back'' to the audience, but could win a $1,000 consolation prize if their rival lost their pricing game. Thus, two new players were called down instead of one.
