County Social Worker Is Contestant Queen


County social worker Geana Richardson has more than a winning personality—she is a winner. Richardson has won countless prizes in various contests over the years. In the past few months alone, she’s scored concert tickets, a restaurant gift card and even cash.

The enthusiastic and animated New York native has a winning history. She got her first taste of luck as a child when she won tickets to see boy band Menudo at Madison Square Garden. One time she called a radio station to check on tickets that she won and was the lucky caller again, taking a second prize.

“This is not new for me,” said Richardson, who has been with the County for 18 years. “I’ve always won calling radio stations. What is new is being a contestant on TV.”

Recently Richardson was selected to come on stage to play a matching game on the “The Steve Harvey Show.”  She won $4,000 but called the experience priceless.

“Steve Harvey was really funny. I felt so comfortable with him,” said Richardson.

The video clip has more than 106,000 views on both Facebook and YouTube already. And dozens of comments.

Her appearance on “The Steve Harvey Show” came just a few weeks after she got to “come on down” to “The Price Is Right.” While she didn’t take home a brand-new car, she did win smaller prizes.


Richardson is already planning her next win. She’s attempted to get tickets to “The Ellen Show,” tried out for “Family Feud,” and is hopeful she’ll get onto the “The $100,000 Pyramid,” “Let’s Make a Deal” or “The Joker’s Wild.”

Plus, NBC producers have called Richardson to gauge her interest in returning to the studio. We’ll have to wait and see when Richardson gets on TV again!
