Erin Robinson and Joslyn Davis, The Amazing Race
What excited you the most about being on the show?
Erin Robinson: "The possibility of 'coming on down' and spinning that wheel! I'm obsessed with game shows (probably why I was an Amazing Race contestant), and my '30 before 30' bucket-list included spinning the wheel on The Price Is Right. Also, I will never turn down an opportunity to be able to donate thousands of dollars to charity. Side note: I got a chance to spin the wheel after the show was over, and I won $1 on my first try!"
Joslyn Davis: "Everything! I don't know a living human being who doesn't have being on The Price Is Right on their bucket-list. Hearing your name called out with those three iconic words, 'Come on down,' is next-level awesome. If my 10-year-old self knew she'd be spinning the wheel on that iconic stage, she would have lost her mind."
What was the most surprising thing you learned?
Erin Robinson: "How funny (and slight naughty) George Gray and Drew Carey are during commercial breaks! Who knew that on The Price Is Right you also get a free stand-up comedy experience!"
Joslyn Davis: "I loved the fact that Drew Carey stayed on stage throughout every commercial break and entertained the audience by chatting them up and joking around with them. He is absolutely hilarious, and it was so cool of him to take the time to do that."
Any advice for future contestants?
Erin Robinson: "Do your 'game play' research. I watched countless episodes of the show and created a cheat sheet with all the game strategies on it so that we could have some sort of plan despite the fact that there is a ton of luck involved! Also, wear comfortable shoes. I made the mistake of wearing heels, and I may or may not have lost a toenail jumping up and down for five hours!
Joslyn Davis: "Trust your instincts, and ask the audience for help. But, most importantly, just have fun!"
What did it feel like to be on a show you've been watching for years?
Erin Robinson: "It felt almost as good as being on The Amazing Race. I remember watching episodes of The Price Is Right with my grandparents who have now passed away, and being on the show reminded me of those amazing memories I shared with them."
Joslyn Davis: "Being on The Price Is Right was pretty much an out-of-body experience, especially considering I was playing alongside some of my all-time favorite The Amazing Race teams. I was pretty much nerding out all over the place."
