It was an episode that went on air on April 02, 2015, in which the contestant named Andrea had to guess the price tag of the vehicle, and was given three chances to match the correct amount.
Now even before she could guess the correct cost of the car, Manuela Arbelaez, who’s been with the show for six years, accidentally unveiled the winning price, $21,960, of the Hyundai Sonata SE.
As soon as the price tag was revealed, Andrea went ballistic as she won the car, while Manuela Arbelaez was embarrassed, processed her blunder and covered her mouth.
The Price Is Right host, Drew Carey, has no other choice but to agree with the lucky winner and has to give away the car to her.
“Congratulations! Manuela just gave you a car! The game is over folks.” stated Drew Carey.
Contestant Andrea had three chances to guess the price of a brand new Hyundai Sonata SE. After revealing her first guess for the price tag of the vehicle, Manuela pulled the number to reveal whether it was right or wrong.
When asked what went wrong, Manuela Arbelaez stated that, she was zoned out. She literally did not see that coming. Her body took over and reacted before her brain had a chance to stop it.
The producers as well as the channel, CBS, have been supportive of this and have let this go as one of a genuine mistakes.
Post the show, Manuela Arbelaez took on to Twitter and wrote, “For those of you asking: the producers and Drew From TV couldn’t have been more supportive and understanding. I’m not in trouble. Phew!”.
All we can say is that Andrea was one lucky contestant and now a proud owner of a Hyundai Sonata SE.
