Have you always wanted to show off flashy cars and cozy new living room sets on national television? "The Price is Right" may be famous for Bob Barker (and now Drew Carey)'s lovely ladies, but now "The Price is Right" is holding a contest to find its first male model.
In the game show's nearly 40-year history, the prizes have almost always been displayed by female models, but now one guy will get to try out the gig for a week on the CBS show, which is currently hosted by Drew Carey.
CBS has announced that the search for a male model will air as a five-episode web series on "The Price is Right's" official website and on its YouTube channel in late September. An open casting call will be held in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 30, when contestants will be judged on "qualities such as their verbal skills, posing and ability to properly showcase a product," a release revealed. The producers will be the judges, along with the show's female models.

Where do I apply? s/
Some things are sacred ya know.....No. Male. Models.
10:1 he’ll be flaming gay.
You don’t qualify. They mean homosexual.
You would think that women want to see male models, and I’m sure some do. It is still surprising how many women flock to purchase magazines where the models are all knock-out drop-dead gorgeous women.
I’ve had women explain it to me like this. Women like to see other women wearing good fashion, so they can either compare, or know what’s “IN”.
I’m not sure what the take on male models on the Price is Right will be. We’ll evidently see in short order.
...must be able to lift 80 pounds and look FABULOUS in a thong.
Hell, I'm in...
It’s about time! Now, maybe all the men on FR will stop complaining about women on submarines, the infantry and Danica Patrick!/sarc
“Must be able to bench-press Drew.”
I wonder if they’ve ever heard of JC Penney.. cause that’s where they’re going.
"The Price is Wrong, bitch!"
This guy will be as fruity as Sangria.
That would be a good job for him. He’s probably played ‘The Price is Right’ game before.
Price is Right is still on the air? Who knew?
The gaying of America continues...
If they seem straight..I’m all for it! There are some fine male models out there.
About dang time!
"What time ith dith thow on?"
There is only one reason Danica is driving and it isn’t because she wins.
It is only for a week. Not sure what the big deal is. Not a word about a homosexual either. I think FREEPERS talks about gays too much. I have never seen another website so inundated with gay life. It is kinda weird. FREEPERS are constantly wondering if so and so is gay. I would rather never hear or see another thread, post or anything about gays. This is about the Price is Right having a week that they showcase a male model and it suddenly becomes the Gay is Right...What the heck FREEPERS??? Way too obsessed with gays around here.
Homophobia is NOT a social disorder.
I read in some liberal magazine that “men are the new women”. That’s what the libs want, anyway.

Saw you post this the other day. Wondered if you would get much reaction. Apparently not. But, FWIW, I think you are on target here.
Real-life indicates this is a very small population segment, but I guess it’s more common in Media/News Organizations and in the Advertising Industry, so the topic therefore gets disproportionate exposure, and, on this site, that bait cannot be resisted.
And when that is the topic, the failures of the last 4 years are de-emphasized.
So often, the right is played like a violin by the left!
Do I have to be gay?
Oh wait, yes I do! At least on the job application. Then I’ll become the best “girlfriend” the other models have and they’ll be comfortable enough around me to walk around naked in the dressing rooms.
