'The Price is Right' Chooses its First Male Model

Wilson

The Price is Right announced today on its program that actor and model Rob Wilson was chosen from hundreds of entrants as its first male model:

Hundreds of hopefuls showed up to an open call for male models in Los Angeles on August 30 and had a chance to show off for the show’s producers and female models.  The field was narrowed down to 26, who then competed in a series of challenges that aired on priceisright.com.  The hopefuls were put through their paces, including writing and singing original lyrics to the show’s iconic theme music, showing their excitement as they were each called to “come on down” and experiencing the frantic pace of a costume change.  When the dust settled, Wilson, Clint Brink and Nick Denbeigh were named as finalists, with fans voting online for their choice from Sept. 28 - Oct. 4.

No word on whether Rob, whose bio and video are here, will be collecting the Plinko chips with or without a shirt.

  5. Since he didn't get the job, I will offer Clint Brink a position.

  6. That guy looks like generic LA trash. And those plucked eyebrows are SO unsexy.

  13. Unfortunate that, per the antiquated "pre-Cary" contracts stipulate that all models must be spayed or neutered.

  14. It would take a hell of a lot more than a shirtless male model--or a hundred of them--to get me to sit through THE PRICE IS RIGHT. Sixty minutes of screaming morons scrambling for crap nobody in his right mind would ever actually buy. I doubt if even nude models could make me endure that ordeal.

  15. I've never criticized the appearance of another person until now, but the fact that this plucked and obviously surgically altered man is being put forward as an ideal "look" is truly disturbing. Is it that difficult to find genuine beauty in LA?

  16. a mile stone indeed.

  19. Clint Brink was ROBBED!!! He was the perfect male spokesmodel. Cute, great smile. Sexually non-threatening. I don't know why this guy was chosen.

  20. @Christian: De gustibus non est disputandum. Having said that: Clint Brink is cute. He is a male Vanna White. Bland. Rob Wilson is sexy. There is a bit of an edge to him. He is smokin hot. Clint is pretty.
