Snoop Dogg's Charity Benefits From The Price Is Right
Remember those days of missing school because you were “sick” and getting the chance to immerse yourself in the world of day time TV? Catching “The Price is Right” was as reliable as those Everest College commercials. You could deal with hearing “you spend all day on the phone anyhow” a few times as long as you were able to guess the total price of the Showcase Showdown and pretend you won a car, a BBQ grill and a trip to Hawaii.
Snoop Dogg can apparently relate and made his debut this week on the show’s first ever Celebrity Charity Week. In an interview following the taping he admitted “The Price is Right” was one of his favorite childhood shows. Snoop’s inner child was fulfilling a dream while his philanthropic side was raising funds for The Snoop Youth Football League, his non-profit organization for inner-city youth.
His non-profit provides kids with a chance to be a part of something positive while offering an alternative. He explained, “The Snoop Youth Football League is something that we created over seven years ago and it was put together to try to help the inner city kids with all the gang violence and drugs and negativity. We wanted to put something in the community that they could do that would be positive, that could be here 20 years from now. A football league is very productive and it’s positive and it keeps a lot of kids out of trouble and it shows them how to organize and work together.”
He freestyled for the audience and admits his favorite part of the experience was “interacting with the fans.” He walked away with $72,585 for his charity while leaving us all impressed with his Plinko skills and his gameshow voice. Why did he sound better than Drew Carey? We may have never guessed that Snoop would have made such a great host, a close second to the O.G. Bob Barker, but we should already expect the unexpected from the Dogfather.
