Is this the face of someone who just won big on "The Price is Right"?
Well, considering the section of the site you're reading, you probably
already know the answer.
This is Janaye from Charlotte, NC. She just won her way on stage by
coming with $19 of the price of a satellite radio package. And you know
where she could listen to satellite radio?
How about behind the wheels of her brand new car! (See, I can ad-lib

And she relies on the audience...
And booms goes the dynamite.
The day wasn't a total loss for Janaye. She spun $1.00 on the big wheel

by a country mile.

latest Dumb Answer of the Week.
