Ryan Announces Latest Winner of KIIS FM’s Pay Your Bills for a Year!

We’ve got a winner! Ryan Seacrest and Sisanie announced the winner of 102.7 KIIS FM’s Pay Your Bills for a Year contest on Monday, June 17. The lucky one is Monique Monroe of South El Monte. The 23-year-old is a new mom to a 3-month-old baby and works as a veterinary technician.

“I am on assignment with iHeart meeting with advertisers,” Ryan explained on-air, revealing why he wasn’t able to be in the studio but on the phone line. “… We’ve been talking about this for months and I get so excited … I don’t really get nervous, but when we do this, I get nervous!”

Ryan surprised Monique over the phone, revealing the grand prize: He’s paying her rent for an entire year, her cell phone bill, her car insurance, her gas, her groceries, plus she wins a brand new 2019 Ford Ranger, a new cell phone AND! tickets and a trip to see Ariana Grande live in concert in London!  


“Oh my goodness, Ryan, you are amazing! I’m going to go home right now — I’m turning around,” Monique said on-air after learning the news, sharing she could only think about her son. “He’s 3 months old right now and you know when you’re a mom you just want to provide for your kids … I’m only 23 years old and just graduated … I don’t have a big savings account so this is God send.”

Listen back to the amazing on-air moment in the audio above!
