‘Price is Right’ looking for the right male model

- Associated Press - Wednesday, August 15, 2012

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Men, do you have what it takes to be a model on "The Price is Right"?

CBS said Wednesday that the game show known for its female models will add a male one for a week.

"The Price is Right" will hold its "first-ever search" for the right man in an online competition, the network said. Viewers will choose the winner in October.

He'll get a weeklong stint on the show hosted by Drew Carey.

The daytime show was long known for its "Barker's Beauties," a title that honored longtime host Bob Barker, who retired in 2007.

Some of the gown-wearing hostesses alleged more was demanded than presenting prizes. Over the years, several sued Barker for sexual harassment and wrongful termination, with most receiving out-of-court settlements.
