For many years game shows have been enjoyed by families all over the world. They are unique shows that allow for an interactive viewing experience from home and are suitable for everyone from children to grandparents. They have typically been seen as some of the most wholesome viewing on TV, but things aren’t always as they seem on TV. In fact, there have been several different examples of scandals that have rocked these seemingly innocent shows. These scandals can range from a person blatantly cheating during the game, the show itself orchestrating the cheat or a number of different unsavory actions that have rocked the world of the game show.

Kicking off the list is a scandal that occurred within The Price is Right, which is without a doubt one of the most popular and most watched game shows of all time.

She said that after she took her pregnancy leave and looked to return to her work, the show stated that her services were no longer needed. Cochran won a $775,000 judgment in November 2012, but the case was overturned in March 2013. A few months later 2010, former model Shane Stirling also claimed she was fired from the show because she got pregnant.
