Cordele woman is Price is Right winner

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Ruth Stewart never thought she would be a contestant on her favorite game show, The Price is Right.

Stewart got tickets for the show when she went to Los Angeles on business. She said all she ever wanted was to a chance to spin the wheel.

"It just happen so fast. The biggest thing I ever wanted to do," said Ruth Stewart.

Stewart had to keep the ending of the show a secret from her family for two months.

Monday, Ruth invited family and friends to watch her on the show at the Ramada Inn in Cordele to see if she was a winner.

Ruth had a few things on her mind doing the show.

"I was thinking about the showcase. I was praying and I said Lord it would be awesome to run a Jacuzzi tub for him because he fell 30 ft and crushed both feet. I don't wanna feel like I'm asking for to much but a trip to Alaska and a jeep would be nice. It was almost as if my fairy tale has came true," said Ruth Stewart.  

Stewart said it all became real when The Price is Right host confirmed her dream.

"He said you're in the showcase showdown. How do you feel. I was telling him the same thing. I said Drew is this real. I just can't believe it. I said I'm nervous. He said you made it. Your gonna be in the top of the showcase. You're the top winner. I went, WOW!," said Ruth Stewart.

Ruth won her showcase and got the Jacuzzi, Alaskan trip and a brand new jeep.

She thanks her employer for the chance to go to Los Angeles.

If it hadn't been for Mary Kay, I wouldn't never been in Los Angeles nor would I ever been on the Price is Right. My little girl dreams are coming true.
