Unless you've been living under a rock, then by now you're fully aware that actor Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad and Westworld proudly claim Idaho as his home. But before the successful actor was winning awards and bringing delicious mezcal to the Treasure Valley, Paul was working his way up the ranks of Hollywood and made a pitstop on one of America's favorite game shows of all time.
"Come on down! You're next up on 'The Price is Right'!"
That's right - before he was on prime television cooking up meth with Mr. White, Jesse Pinkman was looking to "make fat stacks" via Bob Barker and The Price is Right in the year 2000. From the moment he is selected around the 12:41 mark in the video, you know that Aaron is going to put on a show. He absolutely steals the show in every camera shot that he is, oozing energy and charisma that is somewhat foreshadowing his ability to hold a scene with just his face. Aaron has a logical explanation for that energy but more on that in a bit.
You can't help but laugh at how emotionally invested the young would-be star is in everything he participates in on the show. Let's take a look at Aaron's unforgettable time on The Price is Right before he became a huge Hollywood star.
