Hudson Valley Woman Wins Car On 'The Price Is Right'

Emily Pilkington of Tarrytown walked away with two big prizes on her recent appearance on "The Price Is Right."

Pilkington got to come on down and play on the venerable game show last week. She won $24,000 in prizes, including a NordickTrack C 7.5 Elliptical Fitness Trainer and a 2017 Blazing Red Metallic Mini Cooper.

On "One Bid", Pilkington guessed $751 on a Virtual Reality Set, when the actual price was $500. The next time she played, Pilkington guessed $950 on the fitness trainer. It actually cost $1029 and Pilkington won the game and the fitness trainer. Screaming ensued as she made her way on stage with host Drew Carey.

Pilkington won the red and white Mini Cooper, which matched her shirt and glasses, by playing "That's Too Much." Upon winning the car, she jumped up and down and hugged one of the show's models and Carey.

At the end, Pilkington took place in the Showcase Showdown game where she bid on the price of a boat and a trip to Costa Rica, but she went over on the price.
