A contestant on The Price is Right who won a treadmill even though she has no feet is now the proud winner of another prize: a wheelchair-accessible cruise!

When she won the treadmill, Los Angles-based comedian Danielle Perez became an instant hit for her well-mannered reaction to the ironic situation. Wednesday night she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about the bizarre story that landed her Internet fame. While she was there, Kimmel had a surprise for her.

Perez told Kimmel she didn't mind much when she saw that the prize she was playing for was a treadmill because she was so focused on the game.

"You just wanna win," she said. "You wanna win so bad."

Kimmel said her prize has become "the world's most famous treadmill," and he asked her what she was going to do with it.

"I guess I'll just do what everyone else does and just use it as a piece of furniture," Perez joked.

Since Perez was so good at the show, Kimmel set up a little game for her to prove herself again: guessing the price of a jar of peanut butter. Perez admitted she's not a fan of peanut butter but played along and guessed anyway. Kimmel didn't know or care what the price was. He only asked her to set up her real prize.

She and a guest will go on an international cruise with "wheelchair-accessible entertainment, wheelchair-accessible fine dining, a wheelchair-accessible bionic bar, wheelchair-accessible pools and staterooms."

Perez's jaw dropped and she laughed when she heard the description of her prize. She tweeted that she really enjoyed her second chance to win something by guessing prices.


In the end, though, she also went home with another gift she won't use: the peanut butter.
