“Breaking Bad”’s Aaron Paul was a contestant on “The Price Is Right” before he played the high-school dropout drug dealer on the runaway hit about cooking the purest meth on the planet. “Breaking Bad”’s Jesse might want to dump the footage in a basin of acid.

Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse on “Breaking Bad,” as well as other roles like his turn in “Last House on the Left” put on his most enthusiastic performance on the CBS game show “The Price Is Right” and he didn’t do to bad. He may have failed chemistry in Walter White’s class, but he knew the price of a desk.

The newly wed “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul broke out the old video on his latest appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” on NBC. The “Breaking Bad” meth cook with a conscience admitted that, 14 years ago, he and his friends attended a taping of the long-running game show “The Price Is Right” while the iconic Bob Barker was still hosting.

Yes bitches, that’s Aaron Paul, Jesse, jumping out of his seat and running to "contestants' row" screaming "You're the man, Bob. You're my idol!"

How did he work up the energy? Was it method acting? No, Aaron Paul told Leno, "I literally had six cans of Red Bull, obviously."

The future Breaking Bad star didn’t do so bad either. In between professing his love of Bob Barker, he outguessed his fellow contestants on the price of a desk.

Aaron Paul exclaimed to Jay Leno "Wow, I look like I'm on meth." But the poor future actor couldn’t take the desk with him when moved from his starting apartment because it was too heavy to move.

The “Breaking Bad” star made it to the Showcase Showdown round but overbid on a prize by $132.

Aaron Paul admitted "I was depressed for many, many, many months." But he got to go on a trip with one of his friends who won another “The Price is Right” episode that day.
