She didn't make it to the Showcase Showdown, but Erin Atchley walked away a winner nonetheless.

The Knoxville resident and teacher at Central High School was a contestant on "The Price Is Right" Tuesday.

Before competing on stage, Atchley guessed the exact price of a treadmill, which won her the treadmill and $500. Once on stage, she competed in the "Race Game," in which a contestant is given four price tags and must place them on the corresponding prizes. She got only one price correct, but won the item: a 3-D TV.

"Meeting Drew Carey was a thrill, let alone getting up on stage," Atchley said Tuesday.

"The Price Is Right" airs at 11 a.m. weekdays on WVLT, Channel 8.
