The long running game-show 'The Price is Right' is launching a campaign to find its very first male model: could it be you? CBS announced on Monday (August 13, 2012) that it will air a five-part web series on its official website to find the lucky man.
The winner - chosen by viewers - will make history by getting a one-week stint on the show, hosted by Drew Carey. Known for his glamorous female beauties, the show is turning its attention to the male population and will hold an open casting call in Los Angeles on August 30, 2012 where hopefuls will be interviewed and judged by the show's producers and its female models. The contestants will be rated on "qualities such as their verbal skills, posing and ability to properly showcase a product". Any male models willing to give it a go should probably brush up on their showing-off-a-toaster skills first, and a winning smile is likely to go a long way.
The finalists will be revealed on the September 28, 2012 episode of 'The Price is Right', which viewers than allowed to vote through till October 4. 2012. The winner will begin his week-long gig from October 15, 2012.
