Salisbury Woman Receives Final Prize from Winning Price Is Right

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. – A Delmarva couple received an early Christmas Present Monday in Salisbury. For Rochelle and Clarence Collins, Christmas began back in April when Rochelle was given a trip to California from the pastor's wife at her church. The gifted trip turned into a gift she never could have imagined and a story she'll tell forever.

Collins was a contestant on the “Price Is Right” game show. “When they called my name I was pretty excited!” Collins says. Collins lost a game called Flip Flop, but she was able to make it to the Showcase Showdown after a dramatic win at the wheel.

At the showdown, she won it all. An ATV, a trip to Zanzibar and a six-piece bedroom set from Ashley Furniture. On Monday that furniture was delivered. The furniture, along with the other prizes, couldn't have come at a better time. The Collin's had been struggling financially after her husband as injured and put out of work for an entire year. During that time, he says, it was Rochelle who carried the heaviest burden financially. “She pulled her pants up and she did what she had to do. SO that's why I was really excited about her going to California, not knowing all of this was going to happen,” Clarence says.

Rochelle's excitement on Monday, as her furniture was delivered, rivaled the energy and enthusiasm she showed on the “Price Is Right”. For the Collin's they say this whole experience has given them hope. For them, hope is the greatest gift of all.
