Pick-a-Pair is a pricing game on the American television game show "The Price Is Right". Debuting on April 12, 1982, it is played for a prize worth more than $3,000, and uses grocery items.


The contestant is shown six grocery items with their prices concealed. The six consist of three pairs of items which share the same price.

The contestant must select two items which have the same price to win the prize. If they are incorrect, they are given one more chance to win by choosing one of the two products from their first selection and finding the matching-priced item. If the prices of the two items do not match the second time, the game is lost.


The first Pick a Pair set, used from April 12, 1982 to October 10, 1988, had the grocery items rotating on a miniature Ferris wheel set to carnival music. Only half of the items were visible at a time, with the others rotated behind the game board. The game board changed its colors from yellow to blue in November 1985. On September 14, 1990, the current set was debuted. The game was not played for nearly two years between the last appearance of the Ferris wheel and the first appearance of the current set.
