That’s gotta hurt. On a recent episode of ‘The Price Is Right,’ the long running show’s announcer got into a bit of trouble while attempting to walk backwards on a treadmill. Thankfully, because he wasn’t hurt, it is pretty hilarious. Check it out now!
This is equal parts funny and humiliating. While demonstrating how to walk backwards on a contestant’s potential treadmill, The Price is Right announcer George Grey may have gotten a little cocky. As he attempted to walk off of the machine, George slipped and, well, you can probably guess what happened next. Watch the incident inside!
‘Price Is Right’ Announcer Falls Off Treadmill
Perhaps George Grey will think twice before utilizing a treadmill while wearing dress shoes again. George has been hosting The Price is Right since 2011, so at this point, he is a total pro…right?
On a recent episode, George was presenting a contestant with her possible prizes: an off road motorcycle, a double oven gas range and, of course, that treadmill. George listed off all three prizes while trotting comfortably, however, when a producer outstretched his hand to assist him off, he sort of missed and fell directly onto his back! Ouch!
Drew Carey, who has been hosting the gameshow since 2007, clasped his hands over his mouth, clearly struggling not to laugh and take pleasure in his coworker’s pain!
George did ultimately prove his skill and professionalism, though. After his big fall, he continued to read the prizes’ descriptions just as he normally would– except he did it while sitting on the floor! And then, to acknowledge the little mishap, George described all of the treadmill’s amazing features before adding, “aspirin not included” while he slouched over the piece of equipment, looking exhausted.
Lol! That’s the beauty of live television, right?
What did you think of the treadmill flop?
