The Price is Right model Amber Lancaster was not so lucky during Friday night’s show. The 35-year-old model tripped and accidentally broke a light bulb on the set of the long-running TV game show.
It all happened when the show was about to pause for a commercial break after a contestant won the “Double Prices” game. But what seemed like a normal episode took an awkward turn when Lancaster took a tumble in her stilettos, which caused her to fall backwards and accidentally hit a stage light, smashing it to pieces.
Everyone on stage was surprised. “What… geez!” host Carey exclaimed.
“Did I do that?” the horrified contestant asked while Lancaster’s fellow model, who stood beside the contestant, found the situation amusing and laughed.
Lancaster was not hurt or injured and assured the audience she was okay. “I'm fine. I'm just gonna die of embarrassment real quick,” she said laughing as the game show went to pause for a short commercial break.
After the show, the pretty blonde model took to Twitter to express her embarrassment through the hashtags #blooper #tpir #AmbersBootyVsLightbulb. Lancaster took the situation lightly and laughed off her accidental faux pas.

She also posted a short clip of her hilarious fall and wrote: “Yep that's me. Just stumbling around on stage for no reason at all” then added the hashtag #soembarrassed.
Accidents are inevitable but the show must go on. Lancaster was not the only person who’s had embarrassing moments on The Price is Right stage. Announcer George Gray tripped on a treadmill in January and another model and assistant on the show accidentally gave away a $21,960 car to a contestant. The contestant gave the incorrect answer but the model accidentally uncovered the right answer.
