If you’ve been watching “The Price Is Right” for as long as we have, you’ve likely noticed that all of models on the show have been women. Well, no longer. The first-ever male model of the show has been chosen and was announced during today’s episode of the game show.
Meet Rob Wilson of Boston, Mass. He will be the newest face on CBS’s long-running game show as he welcomes contestants to “come on down” and try to win one of “The Price Is Right’s” many prizes. Wilson beat out hundreds of other models who came to audition during an open casting call in Los Angeles on August 30. Of the 26 who made it to past the initial round, Wilson was named the winner.
Fans got to vote between the three finalists — Wilson, Clint Brink and Nick Denbeigh — between the dates of Sept. 28 and Oct. 4, when Wilson was finally named the winner. He’ll make his first appearance on the show on Oct. 15. For those of you who haven’t had a sick day recently, “The Price Is Right” airs weekdays on CBS at 11 a.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.
