We might as well nickname Scott Walker “Winnie McLuckie.”
The retired Dayton street maintenance worker has been called to play the “Live with Kelly” trivia contest a whopping six times in the past 11 years.
He’s won grand prize trips three of those times.
The part-time Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum security guard’s last victory came on the morning of March 14.
His seven-night, six-day trip to the all-inclusive Buccaneer resort in St Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands is valued at $9,500.
LIVE with Kelly airs 9 a.m. Monday to Friday on WHIO-7.
Walker has been enjoying the ride, which has also included trips to St. Lucia and the Bahamas.
“It is just kind of surprising to to me that they keep calling,” Walker said. “It seems like they call every year or every two years.”
This time around, Walker correctly guessed that actor Stanley Tucci made martinis for “Live” host Kelly Ripa and guest host Michael Weatherly of CBS’ “Bull.”
HOW DID HE WIN ALL THOSE TIMES?
Since retiring, entering to be on the contest and watching and recording the show has been part of his routine.
“It is almost like an addiction,” he said.
If “Live with Kelly” happens to call -- as it has those 11 times -- Walker reviews his recording and takes notes.
He noted that the contest often relates to the show’s first guest.

Walker won a trip to St. Lucia on “Live!” last year, and went on that trip alone in January after his companion could not make the trip. He said he made friends and had a great time.
He and his now-late wife Connie went on the trip he won to the Bahamas.
“She always called it her happy place,” Walker said.
Walker is also a frequent K99.1FM contest winner.
