“The Price is Right” model Manuela Arbelaez was sure she would be fired after mistakenly revealing the price of a new car on the game show.
“It was a brain fart, 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 it.” commented Arbelaez.
Immidiantely after the mistake, she went back stage and burst into tears. “We took a commercial break, and I was still very overwhelmed, 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.” she remarked.
Arbelaez said she wasn’t reprimanded for the error, and $21,960 wasn’t deducted from her paycheck. She noted that there have been many model mishaps over the show’s 43 seasons.
Several years ago one of the models crashed a car into Door 3 and a few years after that, another model gave away a trip to Disneyland.
She said there have been many small mistakes throughout the history of the show, but she thinks her mistake was the most expensive in the history of the show.
Do you think she should have been fired?
