PRIMM, Nev. — How would you spend the more than $800 million dollar prize if you won the Powerball jackpot?

That’s the question FOX5 KVVU reporter Ophelia Young asked a ticket buyer as he was filling out his numbers during a live broadcast.

Without hesitation, the man gave an answer that caught the reporter off guard.

“Bunch of hookers and cocaine,” he said.

“We were hoping for a different answer….that’s probably not the answer we were looking for,” the reporter said, with a surprised laugh.
