“The Price is Right” is doing Celebrity Charity Week to kick off the New Year and the first celebrity playing is Snoop Dogg himself, who is there playing for the Snoop Football League for inner city kids.

The way it works is each celebrity plays along with the contestants, winning the amount of their prizes for charity. Our favorite of the episode was Snoop helping Darlene play Plinko – he helped her win ALL the chips. Snoop knows his home products, apparently. He then helped Darlene place her Plinko chips, for a grand total of $12,500. He actually told her the exact right spot for the $10,000 slot.

Snoop also got to spin the big wheel, with the show adding two zeroes to whatever he spun. Unfortunately, he only got a 20, but it’s still $2000. Snoop also announced the showcase showdown, as both showcases had Snoop-related prizes.

What a fun idea. His charity earned $72,585 for his charity. Tune in all week – Jenny McCarthy is Tuesday, Neil Patrick Harris is Wednesday, Chris Daughtry is Thursday and Heidi Klum is Friday, on CBS.
