It’s about time the Price is Right catches is catching up with the times
Bob Barker would turn over in his grave, and he’s not even dead yet.
Drew Carey he a kinkster.
Do horny housewives want to see cute girls or cute guys? Can’t believe it took so long to figure this one out. Think Magic Mike.
The headline is atrocious. No “Barker’s Beauties” without Bob Barker, logically enough.
(And Drew said, on taking the job, he wouldn’t use any similar term because it’s demeaning.)
Yep, Bob Barker might turn over in his grave, bc this is one model he won’t be trying to schtuopt! However, I don’t think Merv Griffin would be really unhappy about it…The active feminists, I as I recall from my childhood in the late 70’s, were really more about stopping any demeaning sexualization of women, the seeing of them as only pretty sex-objects to be ooggled and drolled over, and not this weird equal-opportunity oppressional tangent, making the same climate for men to endure as well. …Oh, I’m still going to vote and watch the Price Is Right, but I won’t be proud of it..
I don’t imagine Merv Griffin would care much one way or the other what models appear on TPIR (so long as the change didn’t steal too many Wheel of Fortune viewers, back when the shows were scheduled at the same time.)
It seems worth mentioning, though, that Sale of the Century was using models of both sexes in the 80s.
