A contestant on The Price of Right was quite underwhelmed after learning the prize she earned from the game show.

Catherine Graham from Marshfield, Massachusetts, recently attended a taping of the series during a visit to Los Angeles. She was selected to play and won a firepit as well as a loveseat.

Graham's earnings gave her the opportunity to compete in the show's "Side By Side" game, where she learned she would be competing for a five-night stay in New Hampshire at The Hotel Concord and a small food stipend, which she later won after correctly guessing the trip's value.

"My face says it all. I said 'Oh, you're kidding.' [Host] Drew [Carey] goes, 'Oh, that's great. Congratulations, New Hampshire is beautiful!' I go, 'Drew, I live in Boston!' " Graham recalled to Boston CBS affiliate WBZ. "I've been [to New Hampshire] a million times."

Graham said host Carey, 63, "just laughed" upon seeing her disappointment about the prize. "He was such a nice guy," she said.

While Graham still had "fun" competing on the show, she said she would have preferred a different prize.

"I just wish it was Tahiti or some place, or Bora Bora," she added. "A cruise around the world maybe."

Fortunately for Graham, she also walked away with $1,000 after landing on the $1 when she spun the big wheel.
