‘The Price is Right’ Gears Up For A New Male Model Search
With Robert Scott Wilson now appearing weekdays as Ben Rogers on NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” CBS’ “The Price is Right” has announced plans to replace the actor/model for another round of “The Price is Right: 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 “All My Children” last year, while continuing to appear on “TPIR.”
