If you thought cringe-comedy died along with Curb Your Enthusiasm, you must not be a regular viewer of The Price Is Right. That’s because a contestant on today’s episode, who happened to be in a wheelchair, was given a pretty uncomfortable prize in view of that fact: A treadmill.
In a scenario that must have materialized directly from Drew Carey’s nightmares, everything seems fine until they reveal the treadmill—for a contestant that everyone can see won’t be using a treadmill any time soon. This being The Price Is Right and all, the unbreakable atmosphere of cheer and enthusiasm wasn’t broken, and the contestant is a total sweetheart about it, but it’s still a moment I imagine the producers of the show wish they could have back.
