Bob Barker Returns to The Price is Right for His 90th Birthday

By October 29, 2013

Follow me on:

One of the most revered game show hosts on the planet, Bob Barker, is turning 90 this year, and to celebrate he'll be making another appearance on The Price is Right.

Barker's birthday is on December 12th, and on that date his appearance on the show will air on CBS. In fact, The Price is Right is dedicating that whole week, December 9th - 13th, to Barker. Of course they will feature pet adoptions and reminding us to have our pets spayed or neutered, but there will also be other surprises and highlights for fans of Barker. On the 12th, Barker will be on the set helping to present the Showcase, which will be focused on turning 90. I can only imagine what some of the prizes will be. Barker's episode will tape on November 5th.

Barker left the show in 2007, and since then he's only returned once to promote his book, Priceless Memories. It'll be good to see him back on The Price is Right once again!

I was on the show in 1989 when Bob Barker was the host. He is such a gentleman and polite and all the contestants seemed to respect that. No one jumped upon him or screamed in his ear but now most of the contestants seem to jump all over Drew Carey and scream in his ears which seems to make them look ridiculous. Anyway, good for you, Bob, am looking forward to seeing you again on the show.

I think Bob could be 300 years old and bring more excitement to the game than Drew does.

Anyone else see the game on 11/5/13? Both contestants were within $500 of their showcases and Drew was as monotone and bored with the proceedings as ever.
