Today was Cassidy Schiltz's lucky day! We've all seen "Price Is Right" contestants go nuts when winning prizes big and small, but almost no one has had quite as much reason to lose it on the long-running game show as the bubbly blonde from Sherman Oaks, California, who is now the second-biggest "Price Is Right" winner of all time.

Schiltz, who rocked a homemade shirt that read, "Whose price is it anyway?" at the show's second annual Big Money Week, not only had host Drew Carey on her side, but also had the whole audience cheering her on, along with her bouncy gal pals and even spokesmodel Rachel Reynolds, who gave her a hug after she won $100,000 in cash playing the pricing game 1/2 Off.
After she opened the box labeled "5" — or "lucky number 5," as Schiltz is sure to call it from now on — her reaction was what "Price Is Right" dreams are made of. She and spokesmodels tossed fistfuls of bills into the air before Schiltz broke down in a mix of tears and laughter, falling to the floor.
But her luck didn't end there. At the big wheel, she got a dollar in two spins, winning her an additional $1,000 and inspiring her to bear-hug the other contestant.
There's more, folks. During the Showcase Showdown, Schiltz nailed her bid, guessing $37,000. Even Carey looked incredulous when he read the value of the showcase, which included a BMW: $37,374.
What's a gal to do upon hearing that news? Cartwheels, of course! Schiltz cartwheeled toward her prizes, and her friends cartwheeled toward her, hugging Schiltz as they all collapsed in a pile.
Her grand total: $140,236 in cash and prizes. And while Schiltz proved to be surprisingly adept at pricing items, it was her reactions that were truly priceless.
Wondering who's still standing as the biggest "Price Is Right" winner ever? That would be California teacher Adam Rose, who in 2008 stood in line for 18 hours hoping for a chance at some moolah on "The Price Is Right $1,000,000 Spectacular" and went home that day with $1,153,908 in cash and prizes.
