'The Price Is Right' Model Accidentally Awards Contestant $21,960 Prize (Video)
The contestant won a Hyundai Sonata SE.
On Thursday's episode of The Price Is Right, a contestant got a winning hint from a game show model.
Contestant Andrea was given three opportunities to guess the correct price of a Hyundai Sonata SE, reported CNBC. Following Andrea's first incorrect guess of $19,849, show model Manuela Arbelaez accidentally pulled the cover off the $21,960 winning pick before Andrea could guess a second time.
"I won it!" Andrea screamed shortly after host Drew Carey and Arbelaez realized the mistake was made.
"Congratulations! Manuela just gave you a car! Way to go!" said Carey. "The game is over, folks."
An embarrassed Arbelaez hid behind the rolling-numbers stand after she realized her mistake.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed with The Price Is Right that Andrea was awarded the car.
Arbelaez later tweeted that the producers supported her, despite the mistake.
Sometimes you wake up and feel like giving someone a car! #PriceIsRight— Manuela Arbelaez (@ManuelaArbelaez) April 2, 2015
For those of you asking: the producers and @DrewFromTV couldn't have been more supportive and understanding. I'm not in trouble :) phew!— Manuela Arbelaez (@ManuelaArbelaez) April 2, 2015
