‘Mama Mai’ is a repetitive phrase that people have heard in Price Is Right. Later in 2014, host Geroge Gray revealed that Mama Mai was his mother Mai Gray, thus giving face to the infamous phrase. Naturally, fans of the host wanted to learn more about his mother.

George kindly responded to the tweet sharing that Mama Mai was his dear sweet mom who watched the show every day.
