I've wanted to be a contestant on The Price Is Right my entire life. I began watching the show as a kid during the Rod Roddy/Bob Barker days and have remained, as Bob would say, a loyal friend in true, ever since. I play along with the games, guess prices, and yell at the TV when a contestant does something wrong.

I've often imagined what would happen if I ever got the chance to "come on down." Hopefully, not this.

On Tuesday's episode, announcer George Gray called out Tara Armstrong's name. The crowd is clapping and cheering, but Tara is nowhere to be found. The camera keeps panning around through the audience and George says her name again. But again, nobody stands up to make their way to contestants' row.

It's finally revealed that Tara was M.I.A. because she was in the ladies' room. Seriously? What are the chances? How long would they have waited for her?

At least she had a sense of humor about it. I just hope Tara washed her hands before all of those high-fives.

Another Twitter user was quick to point out that this wasn't the first time something like this had happened:

Win or lose, these women will forever be immortalized in Internet history.
