Wear an Auburn shirt on The Price Is Right and you will win big.
In 2005, it was Auburn student Chase Gallimore. In 2012, it was Auburn fan Brenda from Eclectic (Drew Carey: “They raise’em smart at Auburn.“)
Thursday, it was AU grad and Auburn resident Megan Sumners, who won a Volkswagen Jetta on the show while in California for the BCS National Championship. The episode was taped Jan. 7, the day after Auburn lost to Florida State, but that didn’t stop Sumners from leading the audience in a “War Eagle.” (Can’t see the video? Try here.)
“Got a lot of Auburn fans in the crowd?” host Drew Carey asked after Sumners, wearing one of one those Auburn baby on board shirts–she’s expecting a child in July–joined him on stage.
Summer won the Jetta by picking the right price of the car in the show’s One Away game. Seemed like it was pretty much destiny: the first four numbers she started out with–2834–just happened to the score of the Iron Bowl.
