'Price Is Right' Wheelchair Treadmill Gaffe: Woman With No Feet Gets Prize

By    |   Thursday, 07 May 2015 08:14 AM

"The Price Is Right" awarded a treadmill to a woman in a wheelchair on Tuesday, and, while viewers thought it was a little awkward, she said she was excited to win it.

"It was funny because the audience got a little quiet. Like you could feel the audience go, 'Wait a minute, that is not appropriate.' But it was so funny," the contestant, Danielle Perez, told Complex.com.

"I had such a good time. I was like, yes I want it! I don't need it at all! But I want it. Now I can use my Nike fitness band on my treadmill. I'm really excited."

Perez is a comedian based in Los Angeles, and CNN reported that she lost her legs in an accident in 2004.

In both her post-win interview and on her Twitter account, Perez seemed to take it all in stride.

"This is literally the best day of my life. I've been popping wheelies all day," she wrote Tuesday night on Twitter.



She also retweeted a number of people who suggested uses for the treadmill, like walking her dog on a rainy day.
