Johnson City, NY (WBNG Binghamton) After a long wait, three lucky viewers from our area are gearing up for the journey of a lifetime.

They're heading to Los Angeles to tryout for a chance to be on the Price is Right.

Action News Reporter Rachael Hidalgo tells us how they plan to win big.

Last August, hundreds in our area tried out for a chance to be on one of America's favorite game shows, but only three made the final cut.

And on January 5th, they'll head to Los Angeles, vying for a spot to be a contestant on the Price is Right.

Winner Judith Robb says she's more than ready for her shot to be in the spotlight.

"I know how much everything costs, because I've been practicing on my days off and I'm looking forward to it. I'm hoping I do come on down and meet Drew Carey!" says Judith Robb from Binghamton.

18-year-old Sierra Barnett says as a college student, she really hopes she gets a chance to win a new car.

"I need a car, and I love Drew Carey. I was like this is perfect because I need a car anyway!" says Sierra Barnett from Binghamton.

The third contestant, Amanda Wetekamp of Endwell, says she looks forward to dominating a game of Plinko if she gets picked.

If you're wondering how they won, just take a look at some of their audition tapes.

"I think I deserve it because I've lived for 58 years in Binghamton and I want to go somewhere! So the best place to go would be the Price is Right!" says Robb.

"WOOO! I love Drew Carey!" says Barnett.

"I have so much energy! I'd be very excited to win, even just to play! And I say Drew! Carry me to the Showcase Showdown!" says Wetekamp.

For Robb, she says she's just happy her friend pushed her to tryout.

"It's going to be an exciting experience and if I get up on stage I hope I can control myself, but if not at least I can say I was there!" says Robb.

Who knows, maybe we'll soon see one of these three bidding their way to the top in the showcase showdown.

All three will receive round trip airfare and a free two night stay in Los Angeles.

You can watch "the Price is Right" weekday mornings at 11 right here on WBNG-TV.
