Reporter Stunned by Powerball Player’s Answer to How He’d Spend the Money

Hint: It's wildly inappropriate

As the Powerball Lottery jackpot keeps growing, it’s natural to wonder what could be done with the grand prize of at least $800 million. So when a reporter decided to ask an unsuspecting ticket buyer on live TV how he’d spend the winnings, one customer decided to troll her and give the most inappropriate answer possible.

In this clip, a man in Primm, Nevada, tells Fox 5 Las Vegas reporter Ophelia Young that he would use the prize money to buy “hookers and cocaine.” Young couldn’t stop giggling. On Twitter, she wrote, “I even told everyone in line I’d choose someone at random and to think about their answer.”
