A Price Is Right Contestant in a Wheelchair Won a Treadmill

"This is literally the best day of my life. I've been popping wheelies all day."

Prizes on The Price Is Right don’t always make the most sense for the contestant who wins them—where’s a big-city apartment-dweller going to put a sauna?—but on Tuesday the game show may have had its most mis-matched pairing of all: A woman with no legs took home a treadmill.

“I kept thinking that it was a really big joke,” Danielle Perez, who started using a wheelchair in 2004 after she lost her legs in an accident, told CNN. “But there was no irony in their cheers or applause… everyone at CBS seemed genuinely excited for me that I won.”

Perez said there was a noticeable audience pause that was edited out of the broadcast following the prize reveal, but she’s keeping her sense of humor about the incident. “This is literally the best day of my life,” Perez, who’s also a comedian, tweeted. “I’ve been popping wheelies all day.”

In a statement, CBS said that “Every member of the The Price is Right studio audience has a chance to be selected to play. Prizes are determined in advance of the show and are not decided based on the contestants.”

Feminists Are Reclaiming the Sexist Hashtag #HowToSpotAFeminist and It’s Glorious

Don't mess with the Internet

Ever wondered how to spot a feminist? Well, have a look on Twitter because users are warring over the sexist hashtag #HowToSpotAFeminist.

Created by conservative radio host Doc Thompson for his show The Morning Blaze, the tweet, intended to mock feminists, garnered a whole manner of replies that unsurprisingly relied on hackneyed stereotypes portraying feminists as fat, ugly man-haters with too much facial hair.

Then, in a glorious way, things got turned around. Feminists took to Twitter to show that a feminist can be any and every woman (and man). Some made poignant statements about feminism being about equality between the sexes, about equal pay and breaking down stereotypes, while others were just hilariously sarcastic.

Way to take back the Internet, feminists!

The Honest Fifty Shades of Grey Trailer Proves How Desperately Unsexy the Movie Is

It's all about abs and Audis

Just when you thought Fifty Shades of Grey movie parodies were a thing of the past, YouTube channel Screen Junkies released an honest trailer for the flick based on the bestselling book series by E.L. James.

The narrator describes the Christian Grey character as “a mysterious billionaire who runs a mysterious multinational corporation which is mysteriously able to function without him doing any actual work.”

The best part is the fake blurbs from film critics starting at the 3:07 mark and the parody of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” from the movie soundtrack.

Listen to Vance Joy’s Gorgeous Taylor Swift Cover

Vance Joy plays Taylor Swift just as Taylor Swift played Vance Joy

Vance Joy is doing for Taylor Swift as Taylor Swift did for Vance Joy.

Swift gave the Australian singer-songwriter’s “Riptide” a piano-heavy cover on BBC1’s Live Lounge back in October, as she was preparing to release 1989. Now, Joy has covered Swift’s 1989 song “I Know Places,” giving that track the intimate treatment Swift gave “Riptide.” The accompanying video highlights Joy’s guitar work on the song, which, as it appears on the album, shows Swift going full pop.

The Swift-Joy mutual admiration society will continue, as he is joining Swift on her just-launched tour.

Watch a 5-Year-Old Kid Help His Dad Propose In the Cutest Way

It happens on top of a mountain, over pancakes

Some people plan elaborate marriage proposals involving everything from John Stamos to pugs. But when this guy wanted to ask his girlfriend to marry him, he went a different route. He enlisted the help of his 5-year-old son.

It all goes down on top of a beautiful mountain while the three of them are eating pancakes. The young boy offers the woman a wrapped gift, which ends up being a Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica with a ring dangling from it. (The video is in Norwegian, but YouTube has subtitles.)

The woman is completely blindsided, and the kid has to ask a few times, “Do you want to marry my dad?” The best part is that while she says yes and runs over to embrace her fiancé, the kid is still struggling to get the ring off his toy.

If anyone is thinking about proposing and wants to follow this guy’s lead, here’s a handy guide on how to use children to propose.

These Are The Best Met Gala Memes

Rihanna wore an outfit inspired by a breakfast staple—or so says the Internet

The fashion on display at the annual Met Gala hosted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is often awe-inspiring. The headdresses, the capes, the gowns—all bring the red carpet to life.

And some looks (this year, it was headdresses and capes) bring out the best (or worst) of the Internet wise-crackers and inspire a generation of memes we didn’t know we needed. Who would have thought to put the cast of the Wizard of Oz on the back of Rihanna’s epic cape, or a fire emoji atop Sarah Jessica Parker’s head?

Behold, some of Monday night’s best.

Watch Game of Thrones Reimagined as Real Housewives of King’s Landing

Ser Pounce has nothing on these two.

In this new season of Game of Thrones, the sniping between outgoing queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and new queen Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) has really brought out their inner Real Housewives.

That’s the thought behind this fan video, which reimagines them starring in Bravo’s newest series, Real Housewives of King’s Landing. It’s worth it just to hear Margaery speak that question again, “What’s the proper way to address you now – Queen Mother or Dowager Queen?” and watch Cersei respond with a coolness that would make even Lisa Vanderpump jealous.

Of course, the stakes on Real Housewives of King’s Landing would be slightly more life-or-death than the actual franchises. Beverly Hills, Atlanta, New Jersey – you may have to up your games.

4-Year-Old ‘Superhero’ Gives President Obama the Cutest Fist Bump Ever

Barack Obama‘s teenage daughters may not want to be seen with him, but at least one kid still thinks the president is pretty cool.

On Saturday, 4-year-old Luca Martinez sent Obama off in style with a fist bump fit for a superhero, CNN reports.

Luca had tagged along with his father, Associated Press photographer Pablo Martinez Monsivais, to watch Obama, 53, board the Marine One helicopter on the South Lawn of the White House. Such a special occasion called for special attire, naturally, so Luca dressed up in a superhero outfit and goggles.

The president took note. When he spotted Luca in the press area with his dad, Obama stopped to bump knuckles with his new hero before taking off in the chopper.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime moment, but Luca played it cool.

“Luca wasn’t starstruck and was very calm for a 4-year-old who just greeted the president,” his father tells PEOPLE. “By the way, he knows who ‘POTUS’ is; he says that ‘Barack Obama is President of Washington D.C.’ ”

Close enough.

Fist bumps are all the rage in the Capitol these days. Sens. Rand Paul and Harry Reid got in on the action with a Senate-floor fist bump on April 22, adding sunglasses to elevate the cool factor.

But if you’re wondering whose pound was hipper, well, let’s just say little Luca’s came complete with an exploding fist.
