Well. This is awkward.
It’s hard to blame the producers of The Price is Right for this, because the prizes are all predetermined and given out no matter who ends up on the stage. But in a case of horrible luck for both the show and the contestant, the woman who got to play this particular game happened to be in a wheelchair.
And one of the prizes happened to be a new treadmill.
Luckily the prize package also included a nice new sauna, which she said she preferred to bid on with a chuckle – at least she has a sense of humor!
It’s amusing to watch everyone on the show tiptoe around the treadmill. The announcer goes “We’ve got…a treadmill AAAAAAAAND A NEW SAUNAAAAA!” as the camera veers away from the treadmill.
The best part is she ended up winning both prizes. But it doesn’t make this circumstance any less awkward!
