Ted Myers learned earlier this month that he was the grand prize winner for the Health & Wealth Raffle and would be awarded a home, a 2008 Mercedes and $100,000 -- a total package valued at more than $1 million, the Arizona Republic reports. Myers, a 22-year-old recent college grad who lives with his parents, must now choose between accepting the house and the car or taking the cash equivalent by Thursday. He's leaning towards the cash, in part to help his band record its first full-length. "I don't think I could afford to live in the house," he says. "I don't think I could afford the electric bill or have the furniture to put in it."
