"It's so loud in there you really can't hear so you're like I think they called my name but they show you a card so you're just so excited I'm excited I'm apart of the show I'm apart of history," says Denise LeVeque.

"They called my wife's name to go up there and you're in total disbelief no that didn't happen," says Loren LeVeque.

A lifetime of playing the Price is Right from the couch, pays off in the real thing. Denise and Loren LeVeque flew out to L.A. For a chance to compete during Bob Barker's final taping of the Price is Right. And they came home with much more than game show souvenirs.

"Everything happened so fast after that prizes and things and spinning wheels," Denise says.

Denise matched the prices of a 52 inch flat screen TV, Corvette and won a thousand bucks in the "Showcase Showdown." But it gets even better. She guessed right in the final round. And took home a 7-day cruise through the Mediterranean, grill and a Cadillac. The plethora of prizes are worth $140,000. However Uncle Sam takes 40-percent. The LeVeques don't mind. They're just thankful to be the last ones to "come on down" with Bob Barker.

They plan on selling their TV, Cadillac and Corvette. So if you're in the market you can e-mail them at lorenanddenise@ameritech.net. Their prizes officially arrive on September 15th.The show airs next Friday right here on WIFR at 10 o'clock.
