Interview With New $1 Million PCH Winner Wynona Price!

The Prize Patrol of Publishers Clearing House are no strangers to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. From appearances on your favorite game shows to shooting commercials with celebrities, showbiz is a part of what we do! But rarely do we have a PCH winner who’s been a part of it all just as long as we have! Meet one of our newest $1 Million PCH Winners, Emmy® nominated makeup artist Wynona Price!

Having worked in the Hollywood makeup industry for decades, Wynona has had her share of unbelievable moments. But nothing compares to being surprised by the PCH Prize Patrol at her door!

“I’m doing good, but I’m still in disbelief,” exclaims Wynona!

I asked Wynona if word has gotten around where she lives in Los Angeles about her big win.

“My cousins saw it on the news and I’ve gotten a few calls from them this morning! But yeah, everything is fine. I have no complaints!”

Never Give Up!

Wynona’s work in the industry has transitioned to retirement, but not her dedication to hopefully becoming a PCH Winner! I asked her how long she had been entering.

“At least 20 years. At first it was by mail. I would get the envelope and I would send it in. Now it’s via email. It just makes it really easy! On my phone, sitting here doing nothing — I just enter from here!”

“I never thought it would happen to me!”

Entering PCH wasn’t something that Wynona shared with anyone too much, but after her big win, she found out she wasn’t the only one!

“Nobody really knew. But since then, people who found out I won would say ‘I used to play, but I’m going to start entering again.’ But I never thought it would happen to me!”

“I’m going to take it slow and easy!”

In prior interviews, I always ask our PCH Winner if they have any travel plans lined up. But Wynona was up front — she’s done enough traveling in her life!

“I used to travel so much when I was working that I’ve gotten it out of my system. Of course, the first thing I want to do is to pay off my bills and turn my patio into an actual room with a bathroom. That’s as far as I’ve made plans for. I’m going to take it slow and easy, enjoy it being there. I’m very conservative. Just going to be careful.”

Speaking to Wynona was great, and I asked her if she had other plans while she’s still staying home.

“Spend time with my great grandchildren — they’re visiting for the summer. I have one grandson and 5 great grandchildren!”

Wynona was so excited about her win, and I’m so glad the Prize Patrol was able to deliver this life-changing prize to someone who really deserved a win after all these years!

Wynona’s “never give up” attitude is one I’m sure we all wish we had. It’s something we hear so often from our new PCH winners! Do you have that same attitude? Are you entering every day? Like Wynona says, it’s so easy! Tell us in the comments about how you enter!

  7. Can you please tell the person who makes up the quizzes that I seriously laugh out loud at the humor. Whoever it is has the best sense of humor and makes those quizzes so fun. Virtual high five. 😂🤓

  8. I remember as a kid watching Ed. My Grandparents always entered by mail. Never won anything in all those years they played. They have been gone now for years. Since then, I have been entering for about 5 years now. I’m really starting to think that the winners have always been faked. So go ahead and keep on ordering all those goodies. Good Luck?

    1. Hello Randy, we would like to clarify that Publishers Clearing House is not affiliated in any way with the company formally known as American Family Publishers. Publishers Clearing House never employed the celebrity spokesperson Ed McMahon, instead we put the spotlight on the faces of our real winners receiving their prize from our famous Prize Patrol. Rest assured, Publishers Clearing House is the real deal! We’ve awarded over $492 Million to winners from all over the US and Canada and that number climbs daily! In fact, most of our major prize winners won as a result of a non-order entry. We really mean it when we say that it’s free to enter and free to win. I encourage you to keep trying and don’t give up. There are multiple ways to enter and every entry has the same fair chance of winning. To see them all, click here: Good luck to you and all who enter!!
