LEE'S SUMMIT, MO (KCTV) -
A Lee's Summit woman recently competed and won big time on one of the longest-running game shows of all-time. She was called to "come on down" and play The Price Is Right.
Brittany Dayton took a trip to Los Angeles for her 25th birthday. Her birthday wish was to get on The Price is Right, and her wish was granted.
Dayton grew up watching the show, so she and nine of her friends made the trip and waited in line for four hours to get into the live studio audience.
She wore a black shirt with rhinestones that said "pick me" and was wearing a tiara.
And before she knew it, she was running up onto the stage.
"When the audience is screaming and yelling, and they're saying, 'come on down,' you can't hear anything. You can't hear him say your name or anything. So they hold up a sign on the stage," Dayton said. "I couldn't hear anything, I was screaming and yelling, and the next thing you know my name was up on the stage."
Before the show aired, Dayton said viewers might see her tackle the show's host, Drew Carey.
"You will see all the craziness, all the jumping, all the screaming. You may even catch me crying. It was an amazing experience. And it is true, I did not know that I was going to get called until they called my name," she said.
Despite the long wait in line, Dayton said it was well worth the wait.
"I was the first one out of the audience and the first one on stage. I got to go up and play the game, the game didn't go so well. But I still got a chance to redeem myself and spin the wheel. I spun the wheel, I got a 95, I got to go the showcase, and it was awesome. So me and a guy are competing in the showcase, and I won the whole showcase, I won $28,000 worth of prizes," she said. "My whole family came and rushed up on the stage, so you can see tons of Kansas Citians on stage."
Among her prizes were a sailboat, a trip to Washington, D.C., Swarovski crystals and speakers and an iPod. She said the sailboat is for sale.
Dayton works at Cerner Corporation. Her fellow co-workers are threw a special party for her Tuesday morning while they watched the show.
