A Monmouth County, New Jersey, man set a new record on "The Price is Right" on Monday, winning the biggest pot in the game show's history at more than $260,000 in cash and prizes.
Michael Strouber won a total of $262,743 on Monday's episode, kicking off the CBS daytime show's annual Big Money Week.
Strouber started his run with a massive $200,000 win at Million Dollar Plinko — which he actually won using his first chip on the Plinko board — followed by a win in the Showcase Showdown that earned him a trip to Fiji and a Nissan Sentra S, a prize package with a total value of $29,446.
As part of Big Money Week, he also won a massive bonus prize of $29,657.
Strouber surpassed the former daytime record by more than $50,000, the Asbury Park Press reported.
