Bill Gates asked price of everyday items, quotes a lot of them wrong

Bill Gates asked price of everyday items, quotes a lot of them wrong

The billionaire founder of Microsoft went on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show for the first time, and the celebrity host figured she'd poke some fun at Gates' hopelessly skewed sense of how regular people shop.

The billionaire Microsoft cofounder appeared on "Ellen" Wednesday and had a tough time guessing the prices of common consumer items in a quiz game.

DeGeneres asked Gates when was the last time he had been to a grocery store, he replied, "Long time ago".

Canadian PM regrets attempted assassin's party invite
Atwal was among the four men who attempted to assassinate Punjab minister Malkiat Singh Sidhu on Vancouver Island in 1986. Trudeau, while interacting with reporters here, expressed disappointment over the fiasco committed by the Canadian side.

The show also shared a video of DeGeneres interviewing Gates, in which he discusses his indoor trampoline room, becoming a billionaire at 21, and the work of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

"This will be interesting", quipped Ellen, who informed the studio audience that they'd receive a special prize if Gates accurately guessed the prices of three of the five products within $1. He guessed a box of Rice-A-Roni cost $5-which every former college student knows is $4 too much to pay for boxed rice.

Regarding a pack of TGI Friday's Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Gates asked the audience: "You guys think less than ten dollars?"

White House supports better background checks
The outside contractor hired to drive a van of journalists in the White House press pool was then pulled aside. The suspect in the Parkland massacre, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz , did not use a bump stock .

Gates is worth an estimated $91.8 billion. But, Gates didn't lose all the rounds completely-when presented with dental floss, he said, "This is my best chance with this one", which he predicted correctly as he guessed $4 (it costs $3.78).

However, we're not sure where Gates gets his pizza rolls because he thought a bag of 120 rolls cost $22.
