Oh, that crazy The Price Is Right always breaking down gender barriers and paving the way for men to get into positions formerly thought of as strictly for women. Wait, what?
That’s right folks! Drew Carey’s modern bastardization of The Price Is Right is ready to break out of the Barker era for good. Gone are the days of all-female spokesmodels…at least for a week this fall. Starting August 30th, TPIR will be searching for it’s first ever male spokesmodel. BECAUSE WHO SAYS THAT FLASHING YOUR MANICURE NEXT TO WALMART DISPLAYS OF TACKY
CRAP FINERY AND LOOKING PRETTY IS JUST FOR THE LADIES?
According to CNN:
“CBS has announced that the search for a male model will air as a five-episode web series on “The Price is Right’s” official website and on its YouTube channel in late September. An open casting call will be held in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 30, when contestants will be judged on “qualities such as their verbal skills, posing and ability to properly showcase a product,” a release revealed.”
So. SO! I have taken it upon myself to help The Price Is Right along in its search. Below? My top celebrity picks for The Price Is Right‘s First EVAR Male Spokesmodel.
Qualifications: He’s already proven himself to be really good at standing there looking good and being famous for nothing. (Okay fine, he writes mega-blockbusters and stuff, but that’s never done anything for these guys‘ tabloid status.) (But wait! That’s another qualifications! Bonus points for verbal skills!)
Oh that hunka hunka burning man Stedman Graham. Oprah’s main squeeze has been properly showcasing a product sitsnce 1986. Plus, again bonus points for verbal skills—in his own life Stedman bills himself as an educator and speaker.
Finally, Robert Pattinson. I’m not so sure about his verbal skills, or his ability to showcase a product (unless the twinkle in his eye in a product? Because SWOO-OON) but I figure the guy could use a break since the whole incredibly-boring-emotionless-girlfriend-cheating-scandal so I’m throwing him a bone on this one. You’re welcome, R-Patz.
So what do you think? Will you be trying out for the Male Spokesmodel gig on The Price Is Right?
