Why Does The Prize Patrol Drive A Van?

They wear navy blue blazers and khaki bottoms. They carry a handful of colorful balloons. They arrive with one dozen of the most gorgeous roses you’ve ever seen — and let’s not forget the Big Check. Yes, I’m talking about the famous Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol. But what I really want to talk about today is their mode of transportation: the van.

I’ve been a Publishers Clearing House employee for over five years now. I’ve also been on a few Prize Patrol trips myself. But the other day I realized: I have no idea why they always drive a van. Why not an SUV? A red hot convertible? Or even a bus? Since the early days of the Prize Patrol, it’s always been a van, and I was shocked to realize I had no idea why! Was it because of the Big Check? Or something else completely? I was on a mission and I had to find out.

I decided to ask my fellow blog writers for help. And their answers…well let’s just say, you have got to see what they say! Go on, watch the video below.

There you have it, folks! Mystery solved! A thank you to my fellow blog writers for helping me out (or at least “driving” me to laughter!) and an even bigger thank you to Danielle, Prize Patrol Elite, for giving me the real answer!

Before I go, let me know…what would YOU love to see the Prize Patrol drive up to your house in? A van or something else? Comment below!
