Gray has hosted a few game shows, including Extreme Gong, Junkyard Wars, and the syndicated version of The Weakest Link. He also hosted one of my favorite cheesy reality shows, The $25 Million Dollar Hoax.
The Price is Right has been auditioning announcers for the past several months, since former announcer Rich Fields was let go last summer. Other potentials included Improv-A-Ganza cast members Jeff Davis and Brad Sherwood, JD Roberto, and my personal favorite, David H. Lawrence XVII.
George Gray was terrific in his auditions, so I'm very happy to see him get the permanent spot. Our congratulations go out to him, along with hopes that he'll be behind the Price is Right podium for many years to come.
