GLORIA WATERS OF WILLIAMSBURG, VA. WINS MERCURY VILLAGER MINIVAN ON 'LIVE'
WILLIAMSBURG, Va., Nov. 19 ~PRNewswire~ -- "Live" airs on WTKR, Channel 3, Norfolk, Va. "I was so nervous my heart was pounding through my chest," said Gloria Waters of the call she received today from Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford. From more than 1 million entries, Gloria's postcard entry was one of the chosen few in the "Live"~Mercury Villager Drive and Dream Vacation Contest. Now she had only to answer the trivia question posed by the "Live" co-hosts on the other end of the line. "We have a question for you pertaining yesterday's show," Regis told her. "What did the Nasty Boys wrestlers give Cody?" "Nasty Sunglasses," was the answer Waters gave to become the ninth winner of a brand new 1993 Mercury Villager minivan. The owner and operator of a motel in Williamsburg, Waters almost never enters contests. "I never win, and I usually don't have time. But I love these guys, and I watch every day, so I figured, 'Why not?'" And that's not all. Waters will travel to Detroit to appear on this Friday's (Nov. 20) remote broadcast of "Live." She will then have a chance to win the Grand Prize -- a customized vacation package and $5,000 cash. "Getting to meet Regis and Kathie Lee will be like the grand prize to me," Waters said. Whether Waters wins the Grand Prize or not, she's already planning to travel the country in her new minivan. Tomorrow -- The Grand Prize Winner. Don't miss a "Live" moment. -0- 11~19~92 ~CONTACT: Hope Hartman of Buena Vista Productions, 818-247-1749~
