Many people look fondly back on childhood sick days spent wrapped in blankets on the couch, watching daytime television while Mom made chicken soup and tea.

For a lot of us, watching daytime television meant watching one particular game show: The Price Is Right.

If you’ve ever watched the show, you’ve probably dreamed of one day getting a chance to be on the ridiculous game show — of course, you’d win a ton of money and come home a local celebrity.

Well, for one 23-year-old, that exact dream came true.

Ryan Belz, a graduate of Penn State, was very excited when announcers called his name. After he made it past the first round, he freaked out once again.

But those early freak-outs were nothing compared to what happened when he started playing Plinko, one of the classic The Price Is Right games. This particular challenge requires that the contestant drop a chip onto a board. Wherever the chip lands is how much money the contestant will win.

With his first chip, Ryan won $10,000. With four chips left, Ryan was still hopeful he could win a lot more. Watch the video below to find out how much money Ryan won in the end!
