Le Juste Prix ("The Right Price") is a French adaptation of the American game show The Price is Right that airs on TF1. It first premiered in 1988 and ran until the original version was canceled in 2001. In 2002 a brief sequel, Le Juste Euro, ran on France 2 and was hosted by Patrice Laffont, it only ran for two episodes. On July 27, 2009 a new version of Le Juste Prix premiered on TF1. The current version is hosted by Vincent Lagaf with Gerard Vivès as announcer.




While all price elements were intact, the series utilized format changes that were exclusive and unique to this version. Here is a list of the format changes:

  • 1987-1988: Airing only on Sunday, this format featured three pricing games, and used the Big Wheel (La Roue) to determine the two Showcase (La Vitrine) players, with players spinning 100 in only one spin winning a bonus prize. A variation of this format would be used on the German version of TPiR, when it premiered in 1989.
  • 1988-2000: The format most fans are familiar with, the show expanded to seven days a week. On the Monday-Saturday shows, the show used the 1987 format, but there was only one La Roue winner; that person moved on to the Sunday finals; that used the traditional hour-long format, with the two La Roue winners advancing to La Vitrine.
  • 1998-2000: Starting in 1998, the daily winners got a chance to win a trip, by playing a version of Clock Game called "Le Grand Voyage", in which the player has 20 seconds to guess the price of the trip. This game moved to the regular lineup in 2000.
  • 2000-2001: Losing the weekend airings, the new Monday-Friday shows kept the hour format, but the two La Roue winners faced off in a new La Vitrine, a hybrid of the U.S. & European Showcase formats. The top winner stopped a range finder with values ranging from 5,000₣ (€762) to 30,000₣ (€4,573). A single Showcase (usually over 100,000₣ [€15,244]) was presented; both players bid on it, and the one closest to the ARP AND within range won.

In the final season, when the Euro was coming into effect, all games gave their prizes and prices in both Francs & Euros.

Pricing GamesEdit

The name of the original pricing game in the US version is given in parentheses. Many of these follow the same rules and gameplay as the US version.

When the series returned, it utilizes one of the largest Price sets in the world, a two-story structure so big (as are some props), certain games require players to head to the second level. They also head from the second level when it's time for La Roue.

The winner of La Roue plays a revamped La Vitrine, an exact carbon copy of Le Grand Voyage, except the player has 30 seconds (and a given range) to guess the price of the Showcase, which ranges from €10,000-€100,000. One Bid items also vary, ranging from at least €20 to €1,000.

In addition, the theme song is a "Whistled" remix of the theme previously used in 2001.
