With now appearing weekdays as Ben Rogers on NBC’s “,” CBS’ “” has announced plans to replace the actor/model for another round of “: Male Model Search.”

While no specific details have been announced such as when the contest will begin, the game show is expected to conduct casting call in Los Angeles, as it had done the first time around, where 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 then 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.

You’ll recall that Wilson got his big break in the fall of 2012, when he defeated Clint Brink and Nick Denbeigh to be named “Price’s” first male model. He went on to star in the online version of “” last year, while continuing to appear on “TPIR.”

    Despite what anyone says about the daily game shows, TPIR still has a large following.

    I have a feeling that TPIR wanted Rob Wilson to leave so that they could get another male model. Wilson was allowed to stay with the game show despite being cast on the internet reboot of AMC (which filmed on the East Coast). “Days” films in LA, so it should have been even easier for Wilson to do both “Days” and TPIR, yet Wilson and TPIR opted to part ways.
