PostSubject: Bob Barker   Wed Dec 11, 2013 10:20 am


Bob Barker retired from the "The Price Is Right" in 2007, but he can't stay away. The legendary 90-year-old game show host and pet advocate will be making a return appearance on the game show on Thursday to celebrate his birthday.

But will audiences remember the great Barker six years after his departure from the show? Judging by the crowd's reaction in this clip from Thursday's show, that's a resounding yes! The episode was actually taped last month, but that still doesn't detract from the joy of seeing Barker on the "Price Is Right" stage once again.

It's appropriate that Barker's return to the show comes during Pet Adoption Week, a subject near and dear to his heart. As current host Drew Carey points out, it's because of Barker that every show ends with the request that you get your pets spayed and neutered.
Barker began hosting "Price Is Right" in 1972 and left in 2007. Since his departure, he's made just one other appearance on the show, in 2009, to promote his autobiography.

Barker has been spending his post-"Price Is Right" years continuing his work with animals, including a sizable donation to PETA in 2010 in order to open a new Los Angeles office. The Bob Barker Building opened in 2012 on Sunset Boulevard.

Will Carey give Barker a spin at the big wheel? Doubtful. At 90-years-old, a slice of birthday cake may be all the excitement an old game show host can take.

Oh, cool!  I'd heard that Bob was going to be on, but didn't know when.  Thanks, Dave.

Bob's finest moment.  And really, who hasn't dreamed about doing this to Adam Sandler...  Whistle

I JUST saw a commercial for it. I can't believe he's already 90!

Here's a still shot from Bob's Price is Right rehearsal.  After seeing him in a suit all those years, it's funny to see him in jeans and sneakers!  And it took me a while to realize that that's Drew Carey on the left.

Yeah, Drew has lost so much weight and looks great. They should have some of Barker's Beauties back for his birthday. Ha! However, there were always rumors of a scandal here and there. I'm not sure who he remains good friends with.

Oh, fun!! He still looks great!  (Rob, that Adam Sandler bit was hilarious! Laughing ).  Yes, Teresa---the Barker Beauties would be fun to see on there again with him!  Although, yep, lots of scandal---Whistle I wouldn't hold your breath. Wink

90! He needs to ask Betty White out. I think she would be a good older woman for him. 92? I think. He looks good for being hugged so hard all those years.

Now THAT'S a great idea!  She was already married to a game show host (Allen Ludden), so this would be a natural.  yes
