Thanks to a big mistake by “The Price Is Right” model Manuela Arbelaez, a contestant on the popular TV game show was given a new car.
The contestant had three opportunities to guess the correct price of a new Hyundai Sonata SE, but after guessing incorrectly on her first try, the model absentmindedly revealed the correct price.

Host Drew Carey burst out laughing, while Arbelaez clasped her hand over her mouth out of sheer embarrassment.
“Congratulations! Manuela just gave you a car!” Carey said to the contestant. “The game is over, folks.”

Arbelaez took to social media afterward to own up to her blunder and to let fans know she did not get in trouble. She even showed a good sense of humor about the incident, comparing herself to Oprah. Here are the tweets as seen on Twitter:
I don’t usually give expensive gifts, but when I do is a $21,960 CAR. #YoureWelcomeAndrea #WokeUpFeelingGenerous pic.twitter.com/cL84sZAGxG — 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
Hey @Oprah now I know what it feels like to be you! Whenever you feel like giving cars away on the show let me know. @PriceIsRight — Manuela Arbelaez (@ManuelaArbelaez) April 2, 2015
According to the responses from social media users, Arbelaez has been forgiven and all is well!
