Hollywood Shorts 9/5: Bob Barker Excluded From 40th Price Is Right Anniversary
Ouch!! It's been 5 years since Bob Barker retired as host of the famous game show, and apprantly for producers out of sight meant out of mind, when it came to putting on Tuesday's 40th anniversary special. Though Barker was seen in several show clips during the special, the former host was not invited to appear or attend in the taping. Barker an advocate against animal abuse who told viewers daily to "help control the pet population" believes was not invited to participate because he has criticized the prizes awarded on the show including tickets to Sea World and the Calgary Stampede as inappropriate. Bob is taking the high road saying he's fine with the snub.
Considering Bob was on the show for 35 years, I think it's an absolute joke he was not on the anniversary show. What do you think?
