Barker’s Beauties beware: Drew’s dudes are coming to town. “The Price Is Right,” which airs locally on CBS 62, has announced they’re looking for something new and exciting.
They want a male model.
The show is expanding its horizons beyond the traditional lacquered hair and sparkly gowns to look for a charismatic guy with the right level of “oohs and ahhs” to impress the viewing audience.
The search will air as a five-episode Web competition on PriceIsRight.com and Youtube.com/PriceIsRight, with viewers voting online for the winner in late September. The winner 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 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 series, up to six contestants will remain and it will be up to the viewers to determine the winner.
