(RNN) - The Price is Right on Friday wrapped up the premiere week of its 46th season in record-breaking fashion.

It was host Drew Carey’s 10-year anniversary of hosting the show. In his honor, any contestant who spun the wheel and landed on $1, won $10,000 instead of the normal $1,000.

It was a lucky day for the last three contestants of the show, as each spun the wheel and landed on $1. Each won $10,000, generating a total of $30,000 in just a few spins.

The fun didn't end there as Carey gave each contestant a bonus spin.

He said that if any of the three landed on $1 again that they would win $25,000 each. Two contestants did just that, as the last person came up short.

Those winning spins brought the total amount of money given away to $80,000, a record for the most money ever won from The Price is Right wheel.
