According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, a Central City man has won big on The Price is Right! His name is Thomas Hagedorn, and he works for Hawkeye Ready Mix in Hiawatha.

Thomas was selected, won the bid, and found himself on stage with Price is Right host Drew Carey! This would be a dream come true for most of us. Thomas got to play one of my favorite games, Cliff Hangers. That's the game where you bid on items and for every dollar you're off, the mountain climber goes one step up the mountain. The goal of the game is to keep the climber from going over the mountain.

Thomas kept the climber from falling off the mountain and went home with about $12,000 in prizes! He wasn't so lucky on the big wheel, he busted and his day was over. Like most people have said before, he thought the wheel was very heavy and not easy to spin.

But not for nothing, Thomas Hagedorn got his 15 minutes of fame and had a pretty cool experience. He told the Gazette he took the day off of work to watch the episode that aired last week.

Check out the video below of Thomas Hagedorn on The Price is Right. He made Central City very proud....great job Thomas!
