Brenda, a nice, fashionable lady with a great scream from the wonderful town of Eclectic, Ala. won the Showcase Showdown on today’s episode of “The Price is Right.”
She’ll be sharing her new sailboat and e-readers and that Jamaican vacation with her husband Floyd, who was also waiting to Come On Down. But it’s a good thing it was Brenda, because “they raise’em smart at Auburn,” in the words of host Drew Cary, and as the credits rolled over his crimson shirt we learned that Floyd is Bama fan.
Brenda isn’t the first Auburn fan to win it all on the 40-year old game show.
In 2002, Will Gaither, then a junior at Auburn, returned to Auburn from Hollywood with nearly $40,000 worth of winnings.
UPDATE: And apparently Brenda isn’t even the first Auburn fan in an Auburn shirt to win. Chase Gallimore, a news anchor for WAAY TV in Huntsville, won the Showcase Showdown while an Auburn student in 2005. And according to The Auburner’s Mark Paden, he was wearing an Auburn shirt. He talks about his appearance in his WAAY bio.

War Eagle Girl says
In Feb 1980, I won a car playing the golf game and spun the wheel and got a dollar to win the thousand dollars! I was in the big showcase but did not win. I bet there are lots of us that you just don’t know about cause we didn’t have the interwebs back then!!
Awesome. Yeah, apparently there are — just updated the post with another Auburn winner from 2005.

To Anne: WAR EAGLE !!!!
