Epic Fail on The Price Is Right: Contestant in a Wheelchair Wins a Treadmill

The price may have been right, but the prize was very wrong.

On Tuesday's episode of The Price Is Right, a contestant named Danielle played the game show and won two prizes: a sauna and a brand-new treadmill. The only problem with the treadmill is that Danielle uses a wheelchair.

"Those are really nice," said the rather surprised contestant, after Drew Carey asked the show's announcer, George, to reveal the prizes.

While Danielle handled the awkward situation with a smile, hundreds took to Twitter to point out the poorly chosen gift.
 
The treadmill incident is the second prize-related mishap on the game show recently. Last month, a model on the show prematurely awarded an undeserving contestant a free car.

"Every member of The Price Is Right studio audience has a chance to be selected to play," CBS and FremantleMedia tells PEOPLE, adding, "Prizes are determined in advance of the show and are not decided based on the contestants."

Thats funny, I don't really see how its wrong or anything. I'd have just laughed and cracked a joke about it lol I don't use a wheelchair, but I can't use a treadmill because of some feet issues lol

I don't think it was insensitive, especially since the prizes are chosen before the show. I thought it was funny, and apparently she did, too.

Not their fault, actually. The prizes were chosen long before she ever showed up to play.

Wow! Was the prize changed for her?

What about the car-  did the person get to keep it?
