Aug. 25--Among the things The Price is Right is known for are original host Bob Barker, current host Drew Carey, the catchphrase "Come on down!" -- and very good-looking women standing next to new cars, vacation packages and other lucrative prizes.
Now the show is looking for a few good-looking men.
The Price is Right is holding its first-ever nationwide male-model search, which will include casting calls in four cities, including Dallas. The DFW call will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.Sept. 7 at AT&T Performing Arts Center, 2403 Flora St. in Dallas.
Host Drew Carey will not be at the DFW auditions.
Other open calls will take place in Boston, Philadelphia and Los Angeles. (A previous casting call took place in August in Spartanburg, S.C.) Online auditions will also be accepted via firstname.lastname@example.org
Semifinalists from those auditions will be flown to Los Angeles for the finals, where "they will be interviewed and judged by a panel of experts on their sense of humor, red carpet skills and, of course, how to model a car," per the release.
After that round, the models will advance to the finals, which will be included in a six-episode web series on priceisright.com. Once the finalists are whittled down to three, fans will be able to vote for their choice on the Price is Right website. The winner will be announced Dec. 8 and will do his weeklong modeling stint beginning Dec. 15 in L.A.
