‘The Price is Right’ Gets a Male Model

Price is RightWhen The Price is Right made its TV debut in 1956 girls everywhere were jumping for joy at the thought of a new vacuum cleaner and shiny free car. Guys on the other hand? They were more excited about the show’s hot female models. But all that is about to change. (Don’t worry, the girls aren’t going anywhere.)

After years of Bob Barker — and more recently funnyman Drew Carey — being the only form of “male eye candy”, CBS has announced it is adding another man to the mix. After a month-long search, the network has chosen 24-year-old Rob Wilson to appear alongside the showcase showgirls starting October 15. The Boston-area actor will join the ladies for a minimum of one week, doing his best to bring attention to things like washing machines and grocery items.

After 56-years on the air, it was about time someone realized that the only people on the show who were scantily-clad were the girls. It was that, or no one wanted to see Carey prancing around in a bathing suit. Either way, we’re just excited for the change of scenery.

Before joining the Hollywood.com team, Lisa spent one year traveling the world in search of culture, and a country that wasn't Kardashian obsessed. FYI: none exist. But since she wasn't born a Hilton — and therefore needed multiple jobs to pay for the many airline miles — she wrote about her trip experiences and other celebrities for 'TV Guide,' 'InTouch,' 'OK!,' 'Redbook,' 'Marie Claire' and many others. Her last job was as a senior associate editor at EW.com, and she blames her love for reality TV and teen dramas on the little amount of sleep she gets thanks to her newest title, Mom.
