One Of Mesh’s Own Gets Lucky On "The Price Is Right"

Emily Hornbacker of Mason Ohio, and an employee of Mesh Restaurant in West Chester, got much more than she bargained for [and ever dreamed of] when she ended up on Contestant’s Row of the Emmy-winning show, The Price is Right, while vacationing with her family in Los Angeles, CA. in mid May. “We were all very excited when Emily sent us a text during the taping to tell us about her new found ‘fame’”, says Chef Paul Sturkey of mesh Restaurant; “the entire staff was rooting for her to go all the way.”

The excitement started when Emily heard her name called to “come on down” to Contestant’s Row. She then secured a spot on stage next to host Drew Carey after placing the winning bid on a Kawasaki ATV off-road vehicle. In the next round, she won a ‘Smart’ Car when she was successful at the “Squeeze It” Game. Emily made it all the way to the ‘Showcase Showdown’ where another contestant snatched the big win.

Says Emily, “I was so excited when my Dad surprised my mom, sister and I with the tickets but I had no idea my name would be called ... it was such a fun and exciting experience and Drew Carey was hilarious!”

Emily’s TV debut can be viewed on the June 3, 2008 episode of The Price is Right, 11 AM on WKRC/Local 12; we will be watching at mesh so join us for lunch, enjoy the show and meet our new game show star, Emily.
