Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has friends across the nation.
A contestant by the name of Ethan took his turn to spin the big wheel on the game show “The Price is Right” Thursday. True to form, host Drew Carey asked him if he had anyone from back home he’d like to give a shoutout to as the wheel turned.
Posted on Twitter by user Dan Vega, Ethan began naming off some of his acquaintances. He then finished by saying, “And Mitchell Trubisky, my buddy!”

Typically, contestants reserve that once-in-a-lifetime moment to say hi to family or individuals cheering them on from the audience. However, Ethan highlighted the former first-round pick during his short stint with fame.
Fantasy team > actual family and friends
While it’s unclear if Mitch and Ethan are real-life pals, a contestant in 2017 took the opportunity to forgo any compadres and instead list several players on his fantasy football team instead.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James might be one the most recognizable faces in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean everyone James’ home state of Ohio is familiar with his name.
In 2015, a contestant named Joel took his chance to shoutout the then-Cleveland Cavalier on the national stage. He singled out his wife, family and of course, the man responsible for bringing the only NBA championship to the city of Cleveland.
However, it was another fellow contestant from Ohio who had an unforgettable reaction to King James that made the episode so memorable.
After taking her turn at the wheel, Carey also inquired if she had anyone who deserved a shoutout. She quickly listed off her fair share of names, and Carey asked if she’d also like to tell LeBron hello. Her reaction was a simple, “Who?”
