Senior music business major Jaice Cousins recently appeared on The Price is Right and walked away with an impressive package including $500, two tablets, designer sunglasses, a vacation to Maui and a sailboat. After attending two tapings, Cousins was selected to ‘come on down’ and won the third item, two tablets, with a perfect bid of $1,000. Cousins hit the stage to play “1/2 off,” earning the right to spin the show’s signature big wheel.
Cousins spun a 90, out of a possible 100 and was included in the Showcase Showdown. Coming within $1,500 dollars of the package’s actual price, she was dubbed winner. Cousins said the opportunity to appear on The Price is Right was an exciting opportunity for her — especially as she spent the last semester in Los Angeles for the University’s Belmont West program. “When I moved to LA for Belmont West, my mom told me that I should try to get tickets to a show taping because I ‘am the lucky one in the family,'” Cousins said. “I laughed it off originally, but eventually looked into tickets and decided to go for it. I could not believe that I was actually lucky enough to be called down, and my mom was right about this, again!”
Despite winning her exciting package, Cousins said the best part of appearing on the show was her time in the studio. “Being in the studio was so amazing,” she said. “There is nothing like the energy that fills that room.”
As for the boat? “What will I do with a boat in Nashville?” Cousins said. “Time to go sailing!”
