WATCH: Bill Gates awkwardly guesses how much everyday grocery items are

Microsoft's co-founder, Bill Gates became a self-made millionaire in 1981 at age 26.

Today his estimated net worth sits at $74.7 billion.

Gates, who tends to stay away from the spotlight, was a guest on The Ellen Show this week and while there, she decided it would be fun to test the Microsoft mogul on the prices of everyday grocery store items.

When asked by the host "when was the last time he shopped at a supermarket?", he replied, "a long time ago" and why would he? If we had a trampoline room in our house, we wouldn’t leave either.

The first item was the American product Rice-a-Roni, similar to a Kraft dinner in Canada or a Korr pasta packet here in Ireland.

Gates guessed costs $5 - let's just say he was very, VERY wrong.
