During a Showcase Showdown on "The Price is Right" that aired Monday, all three contestants spun $1, which has only happened a few times during the show’s long tenure.

The three contestants — Cathryn, Manfred, and Jessica — all used both spins and had different combinations of numbers to reach $1. The contestants won $1000 each, and Manfred went onto the Final Showcase after a tie-breaking spinoff, during which he won a car and a cruise.

Each contestant cheered wildly upon reaching $1, with Cathryn showing off all her dance moves. Even host Drew Carey was surprised and excited with the three-way tie.

Although there is a little better than one in 20 chance of spinning $1 or a combination adding up to $1, the chances of three contestants spinning $1 in the same game are a little less than one in 1,000, according to figures derived from information on the Skeptical Statistician blog.

Spinning the wheel for the Showcase Showdown has been part of the show since 1975, and only a few shows have featured three contestants spinning $1 in the same round.

Twitter fans were obviously surprised by the three-way tie as well.
