“I will be 83 years old on December 12, and I’ve decided to retire while I’m still young.”
With those words, Bob Barker announced that his reign as the Awesomest Old Dude on Television will end in June 2007 when he steps down as the host of The Price is Right.
Bob has been hosting the show since 1972–years before some of his most faithful followers (including yours truly) were even born. Everything I knew about money before I started this website, I learned from him. And now he’s leaving me!!!
If anything less than a full week of prime time programming is devoted to Bob’s final appearance, I plan on calling for a world-wide boycott of CBS. Who’s with me? Who’s with me???
Of course, the Price must go on, even without Bob in charge. Apparently the show’s producers have been looking for potential replacements for years. Take a look at a few possible candidates for the new face of Price and pick which one (if any) should be picked to fill Bob’s big, money-filled shoes. Or comment with your own pick!
