One of the Best 'Price Is Right' Contestants Ended Up Becoming a Really Famous Guy

In honor of the final episodes of Breaking Bad premiering Aug. 11, we dug up this video gem, featuring a very excited Aaron Paul meeting Bob Barker

Thanks to his role as the drug-dealing Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul is one of the most critically acclaimed actors on television. But before the Emmy-winner became famous, he made what is arguably an even more memorable appearance on TV -- as a contestant on The Price Is Right. Check out his appearance on the game show below!

As you can see, Aaron is a huge of fan of Bob Barker. “You’re the man, Bob! You’re my idol,” he yelled before placing his bid on a desk -- which he won. (Isn't it fun to see celebrities get totally star-struck themselves? Of course, that's pretty much exactly how we'd react if we had the chance to meet Aaron.)

And even though Aaron didn't end up winning the whole game, an Emmy is a pretty good consolation prize, right? The only downside: When you become a big star, guys like Jay Leno will find embarrassing clips of your youth, and share that video with the world while you're on The Tonight Show. Check out Aaron's hilarious reaction to his Price Is Right appearance, courtesy of Leno, here.
