University of Southern California Freshman Alex Banayan won more than $30,000 worth of prizes on The Price is Right thanks to "pure luck."
"It's totally a funny story," he said. "On the Monday of finals week two days before my finals, USC Hillel sent out a Facebook message saying they had some tickets for The Price is Right. So I said, 'What the heck? I'll go, I'll get the tickets.'"
