Default Taran Killam on TPIR

During the last season of TPIR with Bob Barker towards the middle, Taran Killam was an actual contestant on their. I think he won his prize during a pricing game and was seen in the showcase showdown (but didn't make it to the final showcase). A funny moment happened however when Taran was about to spin the wheel, he accidentally ripped the microphone from Bob and Bob said "he disarmed me!" Taran got on the grabbed the mic and put his head down with the mic in the air handing it to Bob as if he treated Bob like royalty. I also believe he did a hoedown dance with an old lady who played the hermonica. This is 100% true. Sorry for not searching, but he was on MADtv, and I am sure everyone would like to know this. If I can find a clip on Youtube, I'll post it.

How ironic it is for him to be a contestant on the real TPIR when he was a fake one on the TPIR parody playing a soldier. Maybe Taran had a real dream to be the TPIR some day and his dream come true. (Also, I think this is the first time a person who has appeared on TV numerous times has been a contestant.) I think Bob didn't know him though. Just thought I'd let you all know.

I saw the Taran episode a few weeks ago; I've just kept forgetting to post about it. (Easy to do when the alum in question is a featured player from S7 who was barely there. ) He didn't win his pricing game, but he did win $6,000 on the big wheel. While he didn't dance with the old lady who played harmonica, he did do a little jig with another player who was onstage with him--a true moment of Zen if ever there were one.:alien: ("Paging John Stewart, paging John Stewart....") Still, I have to admit that Taran was quite entertaining...you know, as these things go.

You know who also was a real life constant on TPIR, Vanna White before she was on Wheel of Fortune but unlike Taran she never got out of constants row.

Yeah, I think most people just like to pretend that season never happened.

Anyway, I had no idea he was on TPIR...im guessing theres no linkage? He does a lot of crap for Disney too doesn't he?

I haven't yet been able to find a clip, but I'll keep looking. My apologies to those who have no doubt been waiting with bated breath.

Taran did a few things for Nickelodeon if I remember correctly.

He was great on Moody's Point during The Amanda (Bynes) Show.
