CONOVER, N.C. — A Catawba County family won $100,000 Sunday night on “America's Funniest Home Videos."
The family, from Conover, already won $10,000 earlier in the show’s season.
The winning video shows 14-year-old Colby Dagenhart after a procedure to have his wisdom teeth removed.
Tracie Dagenhart, Colby’s mother, told Channel 9 he was saying hilarious things while still drugged up, so she started recording and posted the video to Facebook.
The video went viral, and people encouraged her to submit it to “America's Funniest Home Videos.”
“It’s just something you never expect, you know, anything to come of it,” Dagenhart said. “You know, I was very surprised when they contacted me a short time after that."
Dagenhart said the family plans to use some of the winning money to take an international trip and then save or invest the rest.
