Come on down! You're the next contestant on "The Prize is Wrong."
On Tuesday's "The Price is Right," Danielle, a contestant in a wheelchair, participated in the game show, and won. Her prize? Well, she got two. A sauna and…a treadmill.
Cue the tweets. Hundreds took to Twitter to voice just how awkward the scene was.
"A woman with no legs just a won a treadmill on The Price is Right," wrote user @luscioushes. Viewer Chrissie Johnson asked whether this was a "producer fail, insensitive or nah?"
After host Drew Carey asked George, the show's announcer, to reveal the prizes, George appeared to rush through the unveil of the treadmill and seemed to be more impressed with the sauna, as heard in the video below.
"Those are really nice," said the seemingly shocked Danielle, after laying eyes on the prizes.
"Every member of 'The Price Is Right' studio audience has a chance to be selected to play," CBS said in a statement to CNBC.com. "Prizes are determined in advance of the show and are not decided based on the contestants."
On other occasions, prizes have not always been the best match. For example, contestants have won trips to their hometown or nearby cities.
