Welcome to this century, “The Price Is Right”! The show has just announced its first male model, Rob Wilson!
On the show’s official website, they made the following announcement via press release:
The viewers have spoken, and Rob Wilson of Boston has been named as the winner of THE PRICE IS RIGHT’s first-ever male model search. The announcement was made today on the long-running game show, which is daytime television’s #1 program. Wilson begins his week-long gig on Monday, Oct. 15.
Hundreds of hopefuls showed up to an open call for male models in Los Angeles on August 30 and had a chance to show off for the show’s producers and female models. The field was narrowed down to 26, who then competed in a series of challenges that aired on priceisright.com. The hopefuls were put through their paces, including writing and singing original lyrics to the show’s iconic theme music, showing their excitement as they were each called to “come on down” and experiencing the frantic pace of a costume change. When the dust settled, Wilson, Clint Brink and Nick Denbeigh were named as finalists, with fans voting online for their choice from Sept. 28 – Oct. 4.
Congratulations to Rob on winning the search for their first male model. Will you watch the show now that it’s less sexist? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!
