Well, for those of you who are not playing the home version of the game...this is Bob's last week of original "Price Is Right" shows. His finale is this Friday.
I'm going to miss Bob and not sure how I'll feel about any replacement. It was hard to lose Rod Roddy years ago (I'm too young to remember the death of Johnny Olsen
Bob only missed 3 tapings in 35 years, in December 1974. I'm sure none of us can boast such an attendance record but it may not be fair because if he was sick after that time, tapings were rescheduled.
I share my birthday with Bob. I regret not being able to make it to the show in all my years. I would have pulled it off this year, but wedding planning has diverted my former discretionary budget. But I got a concession out of it. To pay homage to Bob, at our wedding reception, we are planning to enter the room to the "Price Is Right" music...just like the show's introduction!
What are your favorite memories of the show? Favorite games?
I always love a double showcase winner. And I think that Cliffhanger is my favorite game...a true classic!
Not sure who would be the best replacement but I'm voting for Todd Newton right now. He has some game show experience and has done the TPIR in Vegas.
