Danielle Perez, a woman who uses a wheelchair because she has no feet, won a treadmill on The Price is Right earlier this week. While it could've made for a very awkward situation, the comedian's turned it around and poked fun at it, even noting its "delicious irony." Perez quipped about it even more on her guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday when the host gave her a surprise.

When Kimmel asked her what she would do with her new treadmill, she said she might consider casting it in bronze or do what everyone else does with their treadmills: "Use it as a piece of furniture."

Kimmel later played his own version of The Price is Right on his late-night talk show, and had Perez guess the cost of a jar of peanut butter. Her answer was "close enough," Kimmel said, and she won an all-expense-paid Royal Caribbean international cruise, where everything would be wheelchair accessible. Not bad, considering she also won a sauna on The Price is Right, too.
