Day 15 … Danielle’s Wicked Special Day

Matt and I woke up at 5:00 AM again today.  We were on the road headed toward LA by 5:30 AM.  A month before we left for our road trip, I had request my free tickets to see The Price is Right online.  The CBS Eye-Ticket was not an actual ticket, but did get us in to the CBS studios and pre-registered us.  When we arrived at the studios around 7:30 AM, we walked up to an information desk and were told to sit alongside the building.  This is when we first met our lucky friends; Susan, Julie, and Janice.  The five of us sat and talked for an hour before the Pages came around and starting handing out the priority numbers for the taping.  The 1:00 PM taping filled up quickly and anyone in line with a ticket for that taping was given the option to switch to the 4:00 PM taping, the taping Matt and I had tickets for.  Although we were very nervous about whether or not we would get the real tickets for the show, we were eventually assigned Priority Number 104 and 105.

At about 8:45 AM, we had finished all of the preliminary details and left the studios to get some breakfast.  When we stopped by the car to get the camera, we noticed that we had parked directly next to our lucky ladies from Michigan.  We ate a waffle at the Farmer’s Market for breakfast before heading into Hollywood.  We drove toward the famous Hollywood sign and eventually ended up on a trail at the top of a hill.  After a few pictures, we made our way to the Walk of Fame before going back to the Farmer’s Market.

The first person to be called down was Timothy R-something.  It was funny because the ladies from Michigan had been speaking with Tim and his group at the store during the break.  Matt quickly reminded my to keep an eye on the cards, not the audience, to check for names.  I thought I was dreaming, when the next card shown was my name, “Danielle Antoine, Come on Down!”  I was so excited I turned to Matt, jumped up and down, and quickly ran down the ramp to Contestant’s Row.  I would keep going with all the details of the show, but according to the Participant Rules and Regulations, I can’t release the rest of the details without jeopardizing my chances of getting the prizes I won!  You’ll just have to watch the Price is Right on October 17, 2008 at 11:00 AM on CBS.

After the show, Susan, Janice, and Julie took us out for drinks at the Farmer’s Market.  During the taping, Drew Carey spoke with Matt about trying In-N-Out Burger while we were in California, so after drinks Matt and I made our way to the fast food restaurant.  Unfortunately, we were so tired that as soon as we made it to the parking lot of the In-N-Out we fell asleep until 12:30 AM!  Matt drove the hour and a half back to Jay’s house in Santa Barbara as we reminisced about the amazing day we had.
