Manuela Arbelaez, ‘Price Is Right’ mistake fames hogs limelight on social media
Manuela Arbelaez, the model for ‘Price is Right’ had shocked her fans and viewers of the show. Instead of waiting for an answer, she picked the right answer herself, shocking not just her viewers, but also herself.
The instant thought that came in her mind was, have I lost the job. There was no way such mistakes can be tolerated. This is also because of the fact these blunders can make the whole show look like fixed and so the top management doesnâ€™t tolerate them.
While she admits that was a huge mistake and that she shouldnâ€™t have ever committed it, but goes on to add that she actually lost her train of thought while exposing the answers to “Five Price Tags,” a game that involves correctly choosing a vehicle’s value among five oversized tags.
While on the show, she herself revealed correct $21,960 price after the contestant’s first pick. She had to wait and the contestants had to be given two more choices.
While talking about the whole affair, she says, â€œIt was a brain fartâ€¦I just zoned out. I literally did not see that coming. My body took over and reacted before my brain had a chance to stop itâ€¦In a weird way, I’m kind of glad it happened nowâ€.
Though she jokes about it now, but adds that it was not a joke on during production of that episode. â€œWe took a commercial break, and I was still very overwhelmedâ€¦I was in tears. I thought, ‘Well, this is it.’ I asked the producers, ‘Am I going to be fired?’ They started laughing and told me of course I wouldn’t be fired.”
