Trivia:
Terry and Linda Kniess, a Las Vegas TV meteorologist and his wife with respective talents for discerning patterns and mathematics, discovered that the prizes with particular prices on the show tended to repeat often in predictable patterns. Deciding to use this to their advantage, the couple closely watched recordings of the show for months to detect, compute and memorize those patterns. Thus prepared, the couple went to the studio and Terry managed to be picked as a contestant for the taping of the December 16, 2008 game. Sure enough, Terry was able to precisely price the prizes in his games and made it all the way to the Showcase stage where he accurately stated the exact price of his showcase to the dollar, a feat that had only happened once before in the 1970s. At that point, the concerned producers stopped the game convinced that Terry was cheating somehow. However, after a 20 minute pause, no one could say how that was possible and Drew Carey, convinced the game would not be aired, decided to resume the game and coldly announced to Terry that he had won the game with both showcases. As it happened, the game was aired and Carey was excoriated by viewers for his poor manner towards a player who legitimately won according the game's rules. The retired former host, Bob Barker, claimed that he would have played up Terry as the greatest contestant in the game's history to make the most of his spectacular win. In response to Terry's system, the producers retired some prizes and randomized prices in subtle ways to prevent a recurrence.See more »

Next Host Calling- One More Emmy For Bob, 16 December 2006
Author: getyourdander from United States

Time has robbed us of the greatest TV game show host - of course I mean Bob Barker. Yes, he has retired while he is still young at heart to all of us TPIR fans. He is a good piece of the reason this show is so successful. His off-beat sense of humor always comes through- imagine Rosie O'Donnell to replace him? Bob is still toying with us. Now I heard my old buddy Drew Carey might be the guy. I hope so, Drew would be good as long as Mimi(from his old show) isn't a new model.

People, namely audience & contestants are the rest of the reason. It is watching these people & their reactions when they win that makes this show a success too. This show has a formula that never goes stale. The audience is always diverse & have a special magic created only by the camping on the sidewalk outside CBS.

Bob Barkers job is as close to a real Santa Claus as you can get. In the last few years, the rotating models formula has proved that all you need from the models is to look good. The announcers are now numerous during the shows run- from Olsen to Proddy to Burton & now to Rich.

After attending two tapings, live, the show is done just as quickly as it airs on television, only during the breaks Bob talks with the audience taking on all questions. There were no re-takes by Bob when I finally saw him live as he is really smooth & professional. The production team is amazing & very professional & courteous to everybody.

After 35 years, the show is still a joy because we like to watch happy people & enjoy Bob Barker. I am ready to replace him, & I am a little younger. I'd love to be a real life Santa Claus too. CBS has been kind enough to review my offer, but since I have kept my talents well hidden, they have turned me down.

I have been accidentally honored by CBS as Drew Careys first show airs on my birthday.

I went to Hollywood during May & was on camera May 31st. Even though it is nice there the Price sets are looking pretty worn. I'd want a new studio, sets & move the show closer to my home town if I hosted. Visit my original home town in my review of the movie "Saratoga Trunk" here on IMDb.

Thank you CBS, Drew Careys debut as host is on my birthday, October 15, 2007 on air. Good Luck Drew, you beat me out of this job fair & square.

My new show closing to replace Bob Barker is : "Help control the political population, have all your politicians spayed or neutered, Good bye everybody!"
