Ellen makes Billionaire Bill Gates guess grocery prices

Watch Billionaire Bill Gates try to guess the prices of normal people groceries

In a segment called "Bill's Grocery Bills", Degeneres had Gates guess the price of everyday objects from the grocery store.

Gates appeared on The Ellen Show on Wednesday, where host and millionaire of the people, Ellen DeGeneres, chose to quiz the tech mogul The Price is Right style.

The billionaire philanthropist and founder of Microsoft made his debut on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Wednesday, where he spoke about a range of things, from his foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to the trampoline room he keeps in his house.

When asked by Ellen Degeneres the last time he went to the supermarket: "a long time ago".

It showed as the billionaire missed four out of the five products. He thought a large container of Tide Pods cost $4, but it costs $19.97. 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). He thought a frozen bag of these stoner munchies cost a lofty $22; they actually retail for nearly $9. But there is something distinctly amusing, if baffling, about watching Gates wonder-aloud and befuddled-if TGI Fridays' spinach and artichoke dip could truly cost less than 10 dollars. Get it? Because he's worth like 90-some billion dollars and probably hasn't set foot in a grocery store since before Pudding Pops were discontinued.
