A MODEL on The Price is Right has interrupted the game show and caused Drew Carey to ensure all was well.
Manuela Arbalaez took off her shoe to deal with a pest on air.
Drew, 65, explained a round called the Bargain Game to a Price is Right contestant on stage.
As he was speaking, Manuela cut him off and yelled: “Oh my god” from her podium.
The brunette beauty donned a glittery low-cut blue gown and black high heels.
One of which she then removed to smack something on the lectern.

“It was a fly,” model Rachel Reynolds, who was beside her, explained.
“Did you get it?” she asked Manuella, “You got it.”

DREW’S WINNING NEW LOOK!
Season 52 of The Price Is Right is the first season at a new studio.
It’s also the first since the death of longtime host Bob Barker – premiering on September 25.
The Price Is Right left Television City after 50 years for a new location in nearby Glendale, L.A.
Fans noticed a bigger change as Drew walked out on stage for the premiere, flashing a smile in a chic suit [seen below].
The 65-year-old ditched his facial hair and seemingly shed a few pounds, making for an extremely fresh look.
Fans barely recognized him, as one person commented when his entrance was shared on Instagram: “I love Drew’s new haircut! He looks neat and polished!”
Another wrote: “Drew you look Awesome with the 60-pound weight loss and clean face.”
A third wrote: “Drew looks great, lost weight, new hairdo and lost the beard.”
And a fourth: “I love Drew’s new haircut. He looks great. So does the set. Good Luck in your new home.”
LOSS OF A LEGEND
Bob died on the morning of Saturday, August 26, 2023, in his Los Angeles home – at the time it was said to be due to natural causes.
He was 99 at the time of his death.
Bob began hosting The Price is Right in 1972 and held an impressive 35-year run before his retirement.
Due to his passion for animal rights, his iconic tagline at the end of each episode was: “Help control the pet population.
“Have your pet spayed or neutered.”
The iconic television star’s achievements include 19 Emmys, a Guinness World Records award, and being inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame.
Who’s Line comedian Drew became host in 2007 when Bob retired.
Fans can watch new episodes of the season on weekdays on CBS at 11 a.m.
