Winter's initial reaction was simply, "Oh my god." She then tried to regain her composure but couldn't hide her shock. Eventually, she admitted, "They're absolutely terrifying me. I'm actually shaking."
A Hilarious Moment Goes Viral
The clip of Winter's reaction was shared on social media, where fans couldn't get enough of the funny incident. Winter later apologized for her overreaction and shared a photo of herself posing with the Blue Man Group, noting that there was a "happy ending of sorts."
Fans Show Support
Twitter users flooded Winter's timeline with messages of support and encouragement. Many appreciated the genuine human moment and reassured Winter that it made them smile. Despite the scare, Winter handled the situation with grace and humor.
Inaugural Las Vegas GP Faces Setback
The incident with the Blue Man Group wasn't the only setback during the Las Vegas GP. The first practice session had to be canceled after just eight minutes due to a failed drain cover. Despite the challenges, Winter is establishing herself as one of the main F1 presenters, having previously worked in the cycling industry.
