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 "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.
