When Danielle Perez fulfilled a lifelong dream to be a contestant on "The Price Is Right," she had no clue she'd become a viral sensation.

Perez is in a wheelchair. She lost her feet in a tragic accident 10 years ago when a trolley car in San Francisco ran over her.

"I am so excited right now!" Perez said on the show. But one of the prizes she went for was something she can never use -- it was a treadmill.



She won and became a instant sensation on social media.

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."
