“The Price is Right” model Manuela Arbelaez accidentally gave away a brand new car in an episode of the game show aired Thursday.
In article from Yahoo! News, the Colombian-born Arbelaez said that she lost her train of thought while exposing the answers to “Five Price Tags,” a game that involves correctly choosing a vehicle’s value among five oversized tags.
After the first guess of the contestant Andrea on the price of Hyundai Sonata SE which is incorrect, Arbelaez accidently revealed the correct price though the contestant still has two chances to make a guess.
‘Congratulations! Manuela just gave you a car! The game is over, folks, ‘ says host Drew Carey after the contestant screamed “I WIN” and jumped for joy after Arbelaez’ blooper.
Arbelaez, who has been showcasing prizes on “The Price is Right” for six years, took to Twitter to share her embarrassment and says, “I don’t usually give expensive gifts, but when I do is a $21,960 CAR.”
Arbelaez said she wasn’t reprimanded for the error, and $21,960 wasn’t deducted from her paycheck. She also tweeted: “For those of you asking: the producers and @DrewFromTV couldn’t have been more supportive and understanding. I’m not in trouble 🙂 phew!”
