Bill Gates is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to software or entrepreneurship. But he is not the guy who can help you out on The Price Is Right or to help you keep costs down on a trip to the grocery trip.
The 62-year-old Microsoft mogul was interviewed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday and he discussed how he became a billionaire before obliging Ellen DeGeneres by playing game where he guessed the cost of common grocery store staples such as Totino's Pizza Rolls, Rice-a-Roni, Tide Pods, floss.
Bill Gates Fails Miserably at Guessing What an Average Person's Groceries Cost
And while Gates definitely has the capacity of developing software, when it came to guesstimating how much the average person forks over for household goods and snacks, he was seriously challenged, going so far as to initially postulate that a box of pizza rolls would set you back a whopping $22. But according to Ellen, they’re only $8.98.
As per the report, Gates is using his substantial wealth to help others; he and wife Melinda Gates pledged to give away $41.3 billion to help others via Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, focusing on global health, education and ending poverty.
