The longest-running game show in TV history will be making some more history as it begins its first-ever search for a male model (as if having Drew Carey as host doesn’t sexify things enough already for the ladies). The Price Is Right will air this search as a five-episode web series competition on PriceIsRight.com and Youtube.com/PriceIsRight in late September. The winner, who will be chosen by viewers, will win a one-week modeling gig on the show, which airs weekdays at 11am ET/10am PT on CBS.
The model search begins 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 their 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 web series, up to six contestants will remain, where it will be up to viewers to determine the winner.
Following this competition, the finalists will be revealed during the Friday, Sept. 28, episode of The Price Is Right. Viewers can vote online for their favorite model online at priceisright.com through Thursday, Oct. 4. The winner will begin his week-long modeling gig on the show Monday, Oct. 15.
