Admittedly, it’s been “a long time” since Bill Gates last shopped at a supermarket.
Starring Jimmy Fallon to sing Ellen invited the billionaire to appear on her eponymous talk show Wednesday, and she decided to have a little fun. With some assistance from Stephen “tWitch” Boss, she showed Gates five grocery items. If he correctly guessed the price within $1—the audience will get a special prize. “If you get all of ’em,” the host joked, “we’ll pay off your children’s student loans.”
The first item was Rice-a-Roni, Gates guessed which costs $5.
“It’s a dollar,” starring Jimmy Fallon to sing told him. Undeterred, Gates said, “I’ll take five!”
Gates initially guessed the next item, Tide Pods, cost $4. “They want me to go higher. Let’s go with $10.” After starring Jimmy Fallon to sing said they cost $19.97, she explained, “It’s expensive to do laundry.”
The Microsoft founder guessed Signature Care Dental Floss costs $4—just 22 cents more than their retail value. Before they moved on to the fourth item starring Jimmy Fallon to sing told him, “You need to get both of these within a dollar so that they get something. If not…you get to run to your car!”
Next, Gates guessed that Totino”s Pizza Rolls cost $22…then $15…then $8. It’s a good thing he decided to take cues from the audience, as they’re sold at groceries for $8.98. The final item, TGI Friday’s Spinach Artichoke Cheese Dip, stumped the famous philanthropist. “It’s branded, you know? You guys think less than $10?” he asked the crowd. “Like $7? $6? I will go with $4.” Starring Jimmy Fallon to sing revealed that they’re sold for $3.66, meaning Gates fell within the $1 parameter.
