HOLLYWOOD, CA – Bob Barker has a bone to pick with the host of the show he made famous!
Bob Barker hosted The Price is Right for 35 years. When one thinks of the show, Barker automatically comes to mind as he was, and to a degree is the heart and soul of that show. When Drew Carey took over, he knew there were some big shoes to fill and many individuals had their doubts about if he could live up to Barker’s reputation as host.
Carey has been hosting the show for three years now, and it doesn’t seem as though he’s doing that great of a job. Barker has called out Carey and ha voiced his belief that The Price is Right is not well off with Carey at the helm.
The iconic game show host has accused Carey of taking some of the glamour and sparkle out of the legendary game show.
“Well, he does the show differently than I did,” Barker said when approached by a TMZ.com cameraman. “I tried to make the show really exciting and, uh, he doesn’t do that. He just plays the game.”
Barker, 86, said goodbye to The Price is Right in 2007, after 6,586 episodes and 35 years as the face of the popular CBS program.
