Winnipegger big winner on TPiR!

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Angelina (contestant on The Price is Right, Friday, 1/21/11) was profiled in the Winnipeg Free Press this weekend!

Angelina Goertzen, a 30-year-old WestJet flight attendant and newly published author of a children’s book, was called from the audience to ‘Contestants’ Row’ by host Drew Carey, made it all the way to Showcase Showdown and then won the grand prize.

She won the showdown, a package that included a boat and a trip to Mexico, when she guessed the value at $23,000 and the actual price was $25,130.

Goertzen will take the trip to Mexico, but is taking a cash reward of just over $20,000 because the boat and other smaller prizes can’t be shipped.

“I’m very happy about that. I didn’t know what I was going to do with the boat — I live in an apartment and don’t have a cottage,” she said.

Goertzen plans to use the winnings for a down payment on a condo in Winnipeg.

But prize or not, the chance to play and meet Carey was a thrill in itself.

“Even if they sent me $20, the experience is worth it enough.”
