Six North Carolinians are currently in Las Vegas dreaming about what they would do if they won the $50 million grand prize in The Price is Right Come on Down Challenge, which takes place later today.
“It is a ludicrous number,” Indian Trail resident Kimberley Miller said in reference to the amount she could win. “The first half goes to charity and then I’m going to travel.”
The six winners from North Carolina entered their The Price is Right scratch-offs into two second-chance drawings to win the free trip to Las Vegas for them and a guest. Winners arrived on Monday and will stay in Las Vegas until Thursday.
“It is insane that we are all standing here right now,” Miller said. “I am just so happy to be here.”
The Come on Down Challenge will feature several classic games from the popular game show including Punch a Bunch, The Big Wheel, and Plinko.
To win the $50 million, a player must make it through the Punch a Bunch and The Big Wheel rounds to Plinko and then land on the $50 million prize.
Michele Dorsey, a Dallas resident, said she can’t stop thinking about winning the $50 million.
“I need that $50 million,” Dorsey laughed. “I want a brand new Volkswagen Beetle convertible, cobalt blue.”
Dorsey said the chance to compete in The Price is Right Come on Down Challenge means so much to her.
“I watch The Price is Right every single day that I am not at work,” she said. “I have been watching since I was a little kid.”
Mary Shipman-Lindsey of Kernersville said she initially couldn’t believe it when she saw she won the chance to travel to Las Vegas to compete in the challenge.
“I was so excited I was just like, ‘Oh my goodness, I actually won,’” she recalled. “It has just been awesome from the time I got the notification and it became a reality.”
Shipman-Lindsey also admitted that she has been thinking about winning the $50 million.
“I can’t tell you how many times I have already spent that money,” she laughed. “I have it all planned out. I am trying not to tear up because I am just that excited.”
