One Winnipeg resident was called to come on down to compete on the popular game show “The Price is Right.” Nicole Bouchard, a radio and TV instructor at Tec Voc High School, made it all the way to the Showcase Showdown. In the episode, which aired Wednesday morning on CBS, Nicole gave a shout-out to her fellow staff and students alongside host Drew Carey.
“It was an unbelievable experience overall. I was thrilled at just being in the audience, because I do teach broadcasting so to witness all the production elements first hand was really cool for me. The bonus was being called as a contestant. I don’t know what I did to get the producers to choose me, but I guess I did something right,” Nicole told ChrisD.ca on Wednesday afternoon. “It was an honour to be up there, and an honour to represent Winnipeg and Canada on an internationally recognized show.”
The episode was originally taped on March 30.
