ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A Roseville woman will make an appearance on “The Price Is Right” on Wednesday, and she even walked away a winner. But it almost didn’t happen.

“We grew up watching the show with my grandma,” she said.
And in January, she was determined to make her dream come true. She and her aunt took the drive to Southern California and stood in line for hours to get on the show.
“100 percent did not expect to be called up,” she said.
She was 100 percent wrong. She was the fifth person host Drew Carey called up.
“And all of a sudden my aunt starts shaking me and she’s like they’re calling your name,” she said. “And I was just like what no they’re not.”

“I was very disappointed but i told myself everything happens for a reason,” she said.
She actually tried to get on the show on her 23rd birthday last October. She got the tickets and was ready to hit the road with her aunt, but then she got an email.
“They ended up canceling the show on us,” she said.
They didn’t say why the show was canceled, but Carey had surgery on a herniated disc in his neck on Oct. 6.
But that didn’t stop Bobbie from trying again. Three months later, she made it on the show. She wore her birthday shirt, got that kiss from Drew, got the price right and won big.
