Jennifer Hillam competed against twelve other frugal college students to become the ultimate cheapster.

She was awarded the grand prize of $10,000.00, all in pennies

When asked whether or not she believed she was the ultimate cheapster Hillam said, "I didn't think I was. I'll keep doing it".

Hillam, who is from CottonWood Heights, is a senior majoring in excercise physiology who lives at home, takes public transportation and dries her hair using public restroom hand dryers.
