George and Dragon Owner David Wimberley Wins Big on The Price Is Right

Regulars of local English pub George and Dragon may have spotted a familiar face if they happened to catch the Halloween episode of The Price Is Right last week. (If they were playing hooky from work that particular morning, that is.) Namely, they saw the pub's always jovial owner David Wimberley, who appeared on the long-running CBS game show as a contestant and got to ham it up with host Drew Carey on national television.

And the 57-year-old pub owner and British expat kicked much arse and proved to be quite the Price Is Right beast, as he (spoiler alert) pretty much ran the board during the episode, including winning the Showcase Showdown.
