Dick Peterson, left, was the first contestant to make it up on stage during The Price is Right Live, Thursday night at the Swiftel Center in Brookings.
More than 1,500 people from around the area came and hoped to hear their name and the phrase, "come on down" called. Contestants were picked by a random live drawing. Television personality Jerry Springer hosted the show and entertained the audience.
Lisa Reker, shown at right, was celebrating her birthday and her name was drawn to play for the showcase. She had a chance to win a new car, but she was not lucky enough to win the showcase and the grand prize.
