One person tweeted: "Lady in a wheelchair won a treadmill. I laughed but then felt bad."
Perez tweeted right back: "Don't feel bad. I feel great. I've been popping wheelies all day."
And get this: She is a comedian. She posted a picture of her reaction to winning with the caption "When you win a treadmill on national TV but you have no feet."
She told INSIDE EDITION, "It's hilarious, it's so funny, I have no feet, I'm in a wheelchair I can appreciate this delicious irony being gifted something that I have no use for."
So, what's Perez going to do with the treadmill? She said it'll make a great piece of furniture.
"If you can't laugh at this then what on earth can you laugh at, because way worse things happen than being gifted a treadmill on national television," she said.
The "Price is Right" producers told INSIDE EDITION, "Prizes are determined in advance of the show and are not decided based on the contestants."
