Gretchen Carlson was "Punk'd" on Monday on "Fox and Friends" by a young man who claimed to be unemployed and disappointed about Barack Obama.

The young man, Max Rice, was giggling at the cameras even before the interview started, hinting that something may not be right with him.

But Carlson went on with the interview.

"Hello, Miss USA, it's an honor," Rice said.

"Miss America," Carlson corrected him politely. "But close." (She won the 1989 Miss America Pageant while she was representing her native Minnesota.)

"Miss America, Miss Universe in my book," he said laughing and looking off camera.

"Oh ok, well thank you very much," she replied changing the topic.

"Now, tell me your story. You believed in the hope and change of President Obama, and so you voted for him. Now tell me about the next 3 1/2 years," she asked.

"Oh, I was a huge Obama supporter in 2008," Rice said drinking a Starbucks coffee. "I met him in third grade, when I was little."

"OK ..." Carlson said, growing impatient. "And why now are you supporting Mitt Romney?"

"Why I am supporting Mitt Romney? It's actually a funny story. I lost a basketball game to a friend of mine," Rice answered.

"OK, it sounds like you're not being very serious about this," Carlson said.

After trying one more question, the Fox' co-host realized that Rice wasn't been serious and she cut the interview off.

"Actually we're gonna wrap this up cause I'm not sure that you're ready for prime time yet with this interview," she said.

Despite the prank, Carlson was friendly and said Rice may get another chance to appear on "Fox and Friends" if he is more prepared.

But Rice told Raw Story that he thought the show was "stupid."

"They were just casting a part in a show," he said, according to Raw Story. "They were so stupid... I'm a kid messing around."
