CBS has announced that Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) and a number of your favorite daytime stars will be taking part, for the first time, in #CBSTweetWeek, where fans will have direct access to top talent from their favorite CBS programming (primetime, daytime, sports or otherwise).
For those that don’t know him or have yet to discover him, Robert Scott Wilson is both a model and an actor. In September 2012, Wilson won the coveted position as the first-ever male model on “The Price is Right.” The game show hosted by Drew Carey, currently in its 41st season on CBS, issued an open casting call for male models in Los Angeles in August of last year and hundreds of hopefuls showed up. After being narrowed down to just 26 individuals, the men competed in a series of challenges that were featured on priceisright.com. Such challenges included writing and singing original lyrics based on the theme music from the iconic series. Ultimately, Wilson beat out finalists Clint Brink and Nick Denbeigh and began a week-long stint in mid-October, which has since turned into a regular gig. When news first broke that Wilson would be joining the cast of “All My Children” in the contract role of Peter Cortlandt, one could only wonder if he would be departing the game show after such a short period of time. Wonder no more as the actor tells Soap Opera Network, he’ll be doing both!

“THE PRICE IS RIGHT” ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST-EVER SEARCH TO FIND A MALE MODEL
THE PRICE IS RIGHT is holding its first-ever search to find a male model. The search will air as a five-episode web series competition on PriceIsRight.com and Youtube.com/PriceIsRight in late September. The winner, who will be chosen by viewers, will win a one-week modeling gig on the game show.
The search will begin with an open casting call in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 30, when the 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 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. At the end of the web series, up to six contestants will remain, where it will be up to the viewers to determine the winner.
Following the competition, the finalists will be revealed during the Friday, Sept. 28 episode of THE PRICE IS RIGHT. Viewers will have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite model at priceisright.com through Thursday, Oct. 4. The winner will begin their week-long modeling gig on THE PRICE IS RIGHT on Monday, Oct. 15.
Following is the information for the open call:
