On a recent episode of the TV Game Show “The Price is Right,” exquisite and mesmeric model, Manuela Arbelaez, who assists the host Drew Carey, accidentally revealed the winning price in one of the games – while the contestant was still playing! The contestant, “Andrea,” got to keep the vehicle (and, in fact, went on to become the show’s ultimate paladin).
The contestant, “Andrea,” had to discern which of 5 potential prices the true tariff on a brand new vehicle was. Each salvo was inscribed on a card and the 5 cards assembled atop one another on a narrow placard about 6 feet in height. At Andrea’s first and erroneous guess, the industrious aide-de-camp, Manuela, uncovered the corresponding placard and revealed the word “NO.” Then, inexplicably, she immediately uncovered the price below it as well which revealed a “WIN!” sign. Having thus divulged the correct answer, the contest was consummated and Andrea got to keep the car.
Our eager ingénue, now cognizant of what she’d done, covered her face with her hands and hid behind the pole. Only supermodels can actually conceal themselves behind a mast 1 foot in width– but that’s another story.
We’ve all done embarrassing things. But, seldom in front of a nationwide audience. And, not all of us can be obscured behind a 1 foot wide pole. So, should you need to quickly extricate yourself from a humiliating situation, and you want to run, there are sneakers galore for your concealment at Nike. They’ve got running and walking shoes, cleats (if you embarrassed yourself in a field) and hiking boots (if your faux pas was in the woods). You name it, Nike’s got it.
If running away seems undesirable, perhaps, camouflage is more your style. Converse has camouflage socks, T-shirts and sweatshirts for your subterfuge. You can just evanesce into the background and no one will know you’re there.
Or, perchance, you’re exorbitantly embarrassed and want an extreme exodus to “the other side of the earth.” Fret not. You needn’t actually travel there to get the amazing neoteric fashions at Ugg Australia. You can slip away in snazzy new sandals or extricate yourself in lambskin lined loafers. Or, perhaps, avoid everything and lounge about the house in some of their new ultra soft sleepware.
But if seclusion isn’t your precept either and a positive proclamation of, “Yeah, I did it” more suits your psyche, then concede your sins in style. Appear as elegant as a model (and, conceivably smarter) with some of the super sexy new designs at Boston Proper. From dresses to swimwear to smart new accessories you will “Bold and Beautiful” – which you can watch immediately after The Price is Right in some locations.
Apparently, the folks at “The Price Is Right” are pretty forgiving. Manuela was not discharged of her duties and after the incident, she tweeted: “I don’t usually give expensive gifts, but when I do, is a $21,960 car." She just might not want to make that a habit.
