Manuela revealed a winning ticket, and the host of the show, Drew Carey, decided that the contestant had won. The older woman was extremely happy, but Manuela Arbeláez was embarrassed.
Manuela Arbeláez hid behind the set in shame, but Drew Carey brought her back out. Luckily, Manuela Arbeláez is extremely beautiful, and she will most likely keep her job.

Sofia, a nine-year-old girl from Massachusetts wrote to President Obama last year because she had an important question for him. She wanted to know why no women were featured on US currency. That is a really good question. At the time she wrote the letter, Sofia was finishing the third grade where her class was studying women’s rights and Ann Hutchinson who rallied for women’s rights. In order to find out why she saw only boys on dollar bills, she asked the man-in-charge.
Sofia said that while she enjoyed studying about Ann Hutchinson, she would chose Rosa Parks to adorn the $20 bill reported Brad Reifler
