Ross Mathews with Sweepstakes Prize Delivery Team

This Special Guest Made This Prize Patrol Delivery Even More Special!

You’ve seen him as the super energetic, wildly funny correspondent on The Tonight Show and The Jay Leno Show. You’ve watched him interview some of the biggest celebrities in the business on The Insider. And now, I’m very excited to say that the one, the only Ross “The Intern” Mathews can add “PCH Prize Patrol Deputy” to his ever-growing resume.

That’s right! Recently, Ross joined my Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol partner, Bob, and me as we made a sweepstakes prize delivery and surprised Gardena, California resident Glenn Shimizu with $10,000.00 cash sweepstakes prize. And the result was pure hilarity and absolute fun.

It started with an e-mail sent from my fellow PCH employee Brenna. She is what you might call a “super fan” of Ross, and she had a Eureka moment one day when, on a whim, she decided to e-mail Ross to ask if he’d like to join us in surprising one of our Publishers Clearing House winners. Ross, a self-proclaimed lover of giving things away, eagerly accepted the offer. I think he even shrieked!

We set up a rendezvous for Thursday, November 12th at Gardena Florist, right outside of Los Angeles. That day, we ran up to each other as if we were long lost friends. And then we got down to business. First things first: wardrobe change! Ross showed up wearing a flannel (albeit very stylish) shirt, but we needed to get him in full Prize Patrol mode. That’s when we presented him with an official PCH Prize Patrol blazer! Things were starting to look better, but as Ross noted, our van needed some spicing up too. So Bob and I showed him the skills we learned at Prize Patrol Boot Camp and attached our famous sign to the sweepstakes prize delivery van. Then we were off!

As we arrived at the PCH winner’s street, our excitement about giving out the sweepstakes prize reached a new level. But we had to face a few hurdles first. There were barking dogs, crying children and unwieldy sprinklers – of course, nothing stops the Prize Patrol! A bit wet, we rang on Glenn’s doorbell, and one word can describe his reaction: shocked! Not only was the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol on his doorstep surprising him with a Big Check for $10,000.00, but there was Ross Mathews too! It was an unforgettable PCH Winning Moment!

We had such an amazing time on this award and wanted to thank Ross for making it extra special so we decided to surprise him with his very own Big Check too. Instead of making it out for a dollar amount, we made it out for “Hugs and Kisses”. When Ross saw his name on the check, he literally jumped for joy – you would have thought he had won millions!

I’ll never forget this incredible experience, and you can watch the whole thing by clicking right here.

Wishing you lots of luck,

  6. Your entry was automatically processed before you were transferred to partner sites. You do not have to accept partner offers to enter. We have been experiencing some volume-related slowdowns on the partner offers, which probably caused the “loop.” It will not affect your PCH contest entry.
