So we know she can dance. But does paralympian Amy Purdy have any modeling chops? We’ll find out on Monday when the “Dancing with the Stars” runner-up appears as a guest model on “The Price is Right.”

Show host Drew Carey is positively giddy as he introduces Purdy, one of his celebrity competitors on the recently-completed “DWTS” season.

Purdy, who lost her legs after contracting a form of bacterial meningitis at age 19, waltzed away with fans’ hearts as she danced with pro Derek Hough.

Watch some of her “Price is Right” performance here.
