Yes, the price was right — but the prize was wrong.
On Tuesday’s episode of “The Price is Right,” a wheelchair-bound contestant won a treadmill.
Danielle was playing the “1RightPrice” game when Drew Carey asked the show’s announcer to reveal the prizes, a sauna and a treadmill. She correctly guessed the price of the $3,695 sauna, meaning she also won the $2,400 treadmill.
Viewers took to Twitter to express confusion over the unfortunate prize given to Danielle.
To her credit, she appeared to be genuinely thrilled with her win.
