'Price is Right' contestant breaks Plinko record

One lucky "Price is Right" contestant shattered the Plinko record Thursday.

Ryan Belz, a contestant from Philadelphia, was already excited when Drew Carey invited him onstage but he freaked out when he discovered he'd be playing the Plinko game.

Contestants have to guess correct digits in the prices of prizes to earn Plinko chips. They take the chips to the top of a game board and drop them into a slot, where they travel down to reveal winning amounts.

The Penn State graduate's first chip landed on $10,000 and Belz and the crowd went wild.

What happened next was record-breaking.

His next chips landed on $1,000, $10,000, $500 and then finally another $10,000. He won $31,500 breaking the previous record of $30,500.

Belz told TMZ in an interview after the big win that he figured his job at Target would help him estimate the prices.

Twitter also went wild after watching Ryan's big win.
