On Sheree L. Heil’s bucket list — according to the custom T-shirt she was wearing when she went to see the show — were to see the "Price is Right," get called to “come on down,” and spin the wheel. And while she didn’t end up winning on the wheel, she managed to clean up anyway by taking home a shiny new Audi R8 V8 Spyder Quattro S Tronic worth $157,300.
With exuberant bouncing, expressions of amazement, manic grins and many hugs to host Drew Carey, the very excited Tacoma, Wash., grandmother correctly guessed the correct vehicle price in the Gas Money game to win the car and $10,000 in "gas money." Her total made her the biggest winner to date in the game’s daytime history. The previous record holder, Vickyann Chrobak-Sadowski, won $147,517 in cash and prizes in 2006.
