Woman in Wheelchair Wins Ironic Prize on ‘The Price is Right’ and Has the Best Response

Danielle Perez, a comedian from Los Angeles, just had a memorable win on “The Price is Right.”

Perez, who lost her legs in an accident in 2004 and uses a wheelchair, won a treadmill on the gameshow, CNN reported.

I kept thinking that it was a really big joke,” she told the outlet. “But there was no irony in their cheers or applause.”

Perez herself appeared unfazed by the prize, and despite an awkward pause from the audience that was later edited out of the show, she said everyone seemed genuinely excited that she had won.

She even later displayed her good humor by poking fun at the incident on Twitter.

One of Perez’s friends made an excellent point.
