Even Bill Gates was surprised by the price of laundry detergent

Bill Gates was left perplexed as he tried to guess the price of ordinary items found at a grocery store during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

I think it’s safe to say that billionaires don’t exactly live normal lives like the rest of us.

And tech mogul Gates certainly demonstrated that during a segment on the talk show in 2018.

According to Forbes, at the time of writing, the businessman had a net worth of $129.1 billion and ranked seventh on the list of “the richest people in the world.”

As part of a game on THE Ellen Degeneres To showGates was asked about the cost of common grocery items.

If he came within less than a dollar, he was basically right, and if he guessed at least three out of five correctly, the studio audience would win a prize.

And boy, did Gates stun with some of his estimates.

For Rice-A-Roni, Gates guessed $5, much to the shock of the audience, when the correct answer was $1.

For the Tide Pods, Gates was actually a little undercut and went for $10 – the actual price was $19.97.

Finally, getting into stride for the third, dental floss, Gates guessed $4 when the correct answer was $3.78.

Gates thought a bag of Totino’s Pizza Rolls cost a whopping $22 as the audience gasped and, alongside DeGeneres, hinted at him coming. It went down to $15 before landing at $8. The correct answer was $8.98.

The final choice was TGI Friday’s Spinach Artichoke Dip, to which Gates confusedly asked the audience if they thought it would be less than $10.

After a big yes, he opted for $4 when the real price was $3.66.

The billionaire was certainly a good sport in all of this, but I wouldn’t want to take him shopping with me (unless he paid).

Some social media users, however, defended Gates and said they couldn’t get good answers either.

“I didn’t guess any of them, I must be a billionaire,” one YouTube user joked.

Another added: “I’m not a billionaire and I shop every week. I still haven’t bought a single one.”

While a third commented: “To be honest, my non-billionaire husband wouldn’t have done much better.”

And someone else wrote: “Even Bill Gates was surprised by the price of detergent.”
