'Price is Right' model gives away new car by accident
One way to win a new car on The Price Is Right is to doa lot of research on all the latest makes and models. Another way? Just have the model give it to you.
On Thursday’s episode of the popular CBS game show, a contestant named Andrea was given three chances to guess the price tag of a Hyundai Sonata SE from five choices. After model Manuela Arbelaez took away the card to reveal that Andrea’s first guess —$19,849—was wrong, she inexplicably removed the card on the choice below it, $21,960, which was the correct answer. “I won it!” screamed Andrea, and “Hey, congratulations! Manuela just gave you a car!” the very amused host Drew Carey said to Andrea before shaking the hand of the mortified Arbelaez, who then hid in shame.
Arbelaez had fun with the incident on Twitter, issuing a series of jokes.
And, don’t worry, no one is upset. (Especially Andrea, who, yes, was allowed to keep the car).
