Daytime television is getting ready to mark the end of an era. Bob Barker, the host of the Price is Right for 35 years, will soon retire. News On 6 anchor Terry Hood reports fans from all over the country are flocking to Los Angeles to be on one of Bob Barkerâ€™s final shows and a woman from Tulsa hit the jackpot.
We went behind the scenes of the Price is Right just a few days before Malinda Storms-Moser came to town, but even though we didn't get to see her big day in person, she did invite us to her home Thursday morning to watch as the show aired for the entire nation
â€œI couldn't stop bouncing even if I had tried to,â€ said Storms-Moser. â€œMy friend Alana who was there said â€˜I wanted to hold you downâ€™.â€
But there was no need for that, because it wasn't long before Storms-Moser had bounced her way out of contestantâ€™s row and on to the stage with Bob Barker.
And things only got better from there. She went on to win a tear-drop NASCAR trailer, and yes, she bounced, but in the process, she also fulfilled a life-long dream.
â€œI think I was 6 the first time I saw the show, and I said that's going to be me someday. I'm going,â€ said Storms-Moser.
She didn't make it to the showcase showdown, but she says just meeting Bob Barker more than made up for it.
â€œI was just excited to kiss him on the cheek, and he had more makeup on than Tammy Faye Baker,â€ she said. â€œIt was so funny. He was so cute. I made a complete fool out of myself and loved every minute of it.
