This will teach Price Is Right announcer George Gray to play on the prizes!
While announcing some prize options on Thursday’s game show, the man behind the signature booming "Come on down!" catchphrase wiped out in spectacular fashion.
Gray jogged backwards on a treadmill as he announced the potential prizes, which also included a motorbike and new oven. But when he reached the end of the treadmill and reached out to grab his script, he lost his balance, falling on his back and to the floor.
To his credit, Gray didn't miss a beat, continuing to read the prize details while lying on the floor. He concluded with the treadmill as he finally got back on his feet.

The contestant and show models looked shocked and worried, but host Drew Carey couldn’t contain his reaction, ducking off-camera as he cracked up laughing.

The best part, though, is that he didn't miss a beat! The show itself is no stranger to hilarious moments, from the painful fail of one contestant last year to that winner who twerked on stage. This one might take the cake though, so watch the Lol moment above, and relive it for the rest of eternity with the GIFs below. »
This is every gym rat's worst nightmare! The Price Is Right announcer George Gray tumbled off a treadmill on Thursday, Jan. 15, but he handled the accident like a true professional. The incident began when host Drew Carey asked Gray from behind the curtain for the prize options available to a contestant. "They said it couldn't be done!" Gray, 47, remarked in his beloved game-show voice. "It's an off-road motorcycle, a new range, and a new treadmill!" The partition opened to Gray on the fitness equipment, impressively running backwards [...] »
Gray was showing off a treadmill prize for one lucky contestant, and for some reason, decided to walk backward on the equipment. As he reached for his cue cards to introduce the rest of the prizes, the announcer tripped and fell, landing butt-first and crashing to the ground.
But Gray took the old showbiz motto "The show must go on" to heart, gamely continuing with the segment from the floor, describing the three prizes up for grabs. When he got to the treadmill, he feigned exhaustion, draping himself over the equipment before quipping, "Ass print not included."
Other than wounded pride, here's hoping Gray doesn't have any lingering injuries from his tumble. (Though when it comes to using treadmills, »

Members of SAG-AFTRA have ratified a three-years-plus successor deal to its master contract covering non-primetime TV work.
The vote in favor of the deal was 96.5% of ballots cast and follows the SAG-AFTRA national board’s recommendation in December that members vote for the deal with ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. Ballots were mailed to approximately 132,000 members.
The term of the contract — officially, the National Code of Fair Practice for Network Television Broadcasting (Network Television Code) — runs retroactively from Nov. 16 to June 30, 2018.
“I congratulate our members on ratifying this excellent agreement,” said SAG-AFTRA president Ken Howard. “Our members will benefit from increased wages and overtime rates, expanded residuals and stronger protections. No matter the platform or type of work, SAG-AFTRA members working under this contract can be proud of the solid gains we achieved.”
The deal, reached Nov. 14, covers most non-primetime TV work and about $200 million in annual earnings for members. »

Members of SAG-AFTRA have voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new Network Television Code agreement covering nonprimetime shows on the Big 4 networks. The new three-year pact — which runs through June 30, 2018 — was approved by 96.5% of the members who cast ballots, though the union, as is its custom, would not say how many members actually voted. SAG-AFTRA President Ken Howard has called the new agreement, which the guild’s board approved in December, “a terrific deal” that achieved “significant gains.”
“I congratulate our members on ratifying this excellent agreement,” Howard, who chaired the negotiating committee, said in a statement tonight. “Our members will benefit from increased wages and overtime rates, expanded residuals and stronger protections. No matter the platform or type of work, SAG-AFTRA members working under this contract can be proud of the solid gains we achieved.”
