‘The Price Is Right’ Seeking Male Model

August 16, 2012 by  

‘The Price Is Right’ Seeking Male Model
UPI FILE
Drew Carey, the host of ‘The Price is Right’ since 2007, will soon share the stage with another male.

“The Price is Right” will no longer discriminate against male models. The popular game show will soon be selecting a male model to join the women in displaying prizes.

Since the show’s creation in 1956, models have been used to advertise products and prizes. From 1972 to 2007, the models were referred to as “Barker’s Beauties” — a reference to the show’s then-host, Bob Barker.

There will be an open casting call in Los Angeles on Aug. 30 for male models. The models will be judged on their verbal skills, posing and ability to showcase products.

The show will choose 25 contestants. From those chosen, six will go on as finalists. The public will then vote online on Oct. 4 to determine who will be the first male model for “The Price is Right.”

The show has used more than 25 models since its inception. Barker was accused of sexual harassment by some of the models, but all the lawsuits were settled out of court.

    I THOUGHT Price Is Right WAS OFF-AIR.

  • Chester

    Sorry, Christopher, hasn’t been off the air since 1972. Bob Barker hosted the show from 72 until 07, when Drew Carey took over. Personally, I prefer the original format, that ran from 56 to 65, when it was run more like an auction with Bill Cullen hosting.

  • WILDFIRE

    Is it just me? since the turn of the century, it seems like every smiveling whiner has come out complaining and suggesting discrimination in every aspect of live in America. Whether it be about complaints about the girl scouts not letting cross dressers into the scouts or the boy scouts not allowing gay leaders into the scouts or certain business’s that make a statement on their religious or political beliefs and being attacked because someone don’t agree with their opinion, transgender beauty contestants complaining of discrimination. Cross dressers in colleges complaining because they claim just because they wear a dress should earn them the right and privilege to use the ladies restrooms, how convenient! lefties complaining that religious institutions that go against their agenda are discriminate and should put their religion aside and let executive orders by a muslim determine what is a sin and what is not. Same goes with the homosexual agenda, if people don’t agree with them or support them they all scream discrimination, racist, biggots and everything else under the sun along with a President and an Attorney General along with congresswoman such as Maxine Waters using the race card at every turn when they get caught in a pinch and no other lie works they scream the race card to get opposition to back off. Heck we even have illegals that break federal laws screaming discrimination and claiming they should have rights in this Country because they made it accross the border and they are here to claim their prize of free hand outs.

    We used to just have to deal basically with blacks and sometimes woman screaming discrimination. Since the turn of the century everyone under the sun especially since Obama has been in office has screamed discrimination, racism and so on when they don’t get what they want or if its not handed to them. Heck even pedophile rs are now screaming discrimination and they should have equal rights to love who they want like the homosexuals have. Where does it end? When are people going to say enough is enough with catering to the minorities and rediscover that this Country was built by the majority rule not by the minority rule.

      you mentioned a lot of things but everyone seems to forget everything made is for right handed people. even in grade school and up the desks were made for right handed people. how about discrimnation towards left handed people.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “WILDFIRE,” I AGREE. Price Is Right DOES NOT NEED A MALE MODEL.

  • dan

    I would have been darned proud to have harrassed some of those pretty little models….
    what the heck do they expect from a ‘normal’ man.

    • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

      “dan,”

      SINCE DAYTIME TELEVISION WAS CREATED FOR HOUSEWIVES, HAVING FEMALE MODELS ON Price Is Right WAS A WAY TO GET MALE RETIREES TO WATCH.

      • Robert Smith

        It’s a busness. Why should it matter to you?

        Are you like one of those idiots who doesn’t know how to change a channel?

        Where is says “CH” on the remote hit either the up or down button. Problem solved.

        That is, unless you want things YOUR way and others don’t have the freedom to do and see what they want.

        Isn’t this America where folks should be free to do what they want as long as another isn’t hurt?

  • bearded1der

    This will be meaningful if a bearded guy gets the job. If the chosen candidate ends up someone (thing?) that doesn’t resemble a man and would be made up to melt away on contact under those stage lights…then what’s the point?

  • s c

    This is a foo foo topic. The program has been on the air for many years, and it’s still on the air. WHY is it important for the program to have a dude on it N O W ? Do Amerika’s pc wimps have nothing better to do? HOW will have a dude improve the program? It might jack up the show’s ratings [for female viewers] but it won’t make the program better.
    This sounds like the long arm of Uncle Scam. The old fart has to interfere in EVERYTHING. And every time he interferes, things go from bad to worse. Old farts are not capable of making things better. After 150+ years, people still need proof? Duh.

  • Scott in SC

    Perhaps y’all are reading a bit too much into the announcement. I don’t see where any disgruntled man or govt. agency was threatening a lawsuit. Maybe the show is trying something new. The whole thing seems like a marketing event with a reality show twist.

    “THE PRICE IS RIGHT” ANNOUNCES THEIR FIRST-EVER SEARCH TO FIND A MALE MODEL

    Search Will Air as a Five-Episode Web Series Competition on PriceIsRight.com and Youtube.com/PriceIsRight, With Viewers Voting Online for the Winner

    THE PRICE IS RIGHT announces its first-ever search to find a male model. The search will air as a five-episode web series competition on priceisright.com and youtube.com/priceisright in late September. The winner, who will be chosen by viewers, will win a one-week modeling gig on the game show.

    The search will begin with an open casting call in Los Angeles on Thursday, Aug. 30, when the male model hopefuls will be interviewed and judged by the show’s female models and show producers on qualities such as their verbal skills, posing and ability to properly showcase a product.

    Contestants who are selected to move on will participate in a series of challenges designed to reveal who has the best on-camera presence and modeling skills. The judges will eliminate contestants after each challenge, but at certain points, one of the two contestants who finish in the bottom of a challenge may have the chance to win their way back into the competition. At the end of the web series, up to six contestants will remain and it will be up to the viewers to determine the winner.

    Following the competition, the finalists will be revealed during the Friday, Sept. 28 episode of THE PRICE IS RIGHT. Viewers will have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite model at priceisright.com through Thursday, Oct. 4. The winner will begin their week-long modeling gig on THE PRICE IS RIGHT on Monday, Oct. 15.

  • JimH

    I don’t see a change in my viewing habits.

    • Robert Smith

      Bino! Nobody is forced to watch.

      Go to the cooking, golf, playboy channels, or any one of the hundreds of cohoiices on the dials. if you want to complain about one it says more about you than the program.

  • Franklyn Molina

    They’re whining and complaining NOW for a male model? Let’s all remember a little something boys and girls, “just because YOU CAN, doesn’t mean that YOU SHOULD.” We don’t live in Should-Land.

  • teaparty13

    Big Whoop, this is news?

  • FreedomFighter

    I rarely watch TV its nothing more that social programming on a massive scale… so could give a rats left one about this.
