Price Is Right model Manuela Arbelaez has been showcasing prices in the game show for the past six years. She has done many of the routines several times and as such has probably got it down pat.

Well...not so much. When she was assisting in game segment 'Five price tags' where the contestant had to guess the correct value of a car, out of five choices written on over sized tags that had to be pulled out by Arbelaez to reveal whether it was correct or not, the model accidentally pulled a tag that revealed which one was correct.

"It was a brain fart," she said in an interview. "I just zoned out. I literally did not see that coming. My body took over and reacted before my brain had a chance to stop it."

She also revealed how devastated she was after what happened:

"We took a commercial break, and I was still very overwhelmed," "I was in tears. I thought, ‘Well, this is it.’ I asked the producers, ‘Am I going to be fired?’ They started laughing and told me of course I wouldn’t be fired." Arbelaez said.

Well now that's a happy ending! Arbelaez gets to keep her job, becomes famous, a contestant won a car, we get to have a good laugh, and the producers get free publicity.

In the end, even the erring model chimed in on the humor of the situation, she tweeted out:

It is a win-win for all!
