The Prize Patrol Surprises Big Winners on The Price Is Right


If you’ve been tuning into The Price Is Right on CBS this week, then you know that the Prize Patrol and I have been busy making appearances on the daytime game show!

The Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol recently made a trip out to Hollywood to film a week’s worth of The Price Is Right episodes. The entire experience was thrilling, to say the least! Going into it, we all had a massive feeling of winning moment anticipation. Who were going to be the big winners? Who were we going to see? What will it be like to be part of an iconic game show?

As we walked into CBS studios, it dawned on us that the Prize Patrol had entered a whole new world. Hollywood is full of glitz and glamour, and we got to experience it firsthand. We were surrounded by stars! Our dressing room was even in the same hallway as all of the daytime soap opera stars. So cool, right?

Before we knew it, it was show time! The energy in the studio was unlike anything we’ve ever felt before. The audience was loud, energetic, and BEYOND excited to be part of The Price Is Right. The atmosphere was electric! This only added to our exhilaration – we were not only excited to be part of the show, but we couldn’t wait to see who would win and when!

As you may know from watching, any PLINKO winner this week will be awarded with a Big Check from the Prize Patrol. While watching Monday’s contestant, Summer Johnson, drop her PLINKO chips, we were SHOCKED to see them drop down and hit $20,000.00. I mean, the first player on the first episode and we were already being summoned to the stage!  Summer Johnson was so energized by her win – she bounded down the stairs and hugged Todd so hard that he had BRUISES the next day! But it’s okay – the Prize Patrol has a lot of experience dealing with enthusiastic winners. We’re used to unpredictable winning moment reactions from our many BIG winners.

You know, The Price Is Right is a lot like entering the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. Just as the show contestant has many fun chances to win big money, so do PCH entrants! We have so many ways to enter our sweepstakes (at, at the PCH Fan Page, or with your first daily search at PCHSearch&Win), as well as lots of great games to play and win! And just as The Price Is Right winners have HUGE responses to winning large sums of money, so do our big winners … which you can see in the winning moment videos on

Keep watching The Price Is Right on CBS this week (check your local listings for channel and time!). The Prize Patrol will be making another surprise appearance. It will be a twist that you may not see coming…
