Bob Barker Ashamed Of ‘The Price Is Right,’ Didn’t Celebrate 40th Anniversary

price is right

This morning Drew Carey invited contestants to come on down during the 40th Anniversary special of The Price Is Right. Bob Barker, who hosted the show for 35 years, was not one of those invited to grace the stage.

According to the LAist, Barker was seen during some vintage clips on the 40th anniversary special but the legendary host wasn’t welcomed back on stage.

But that isn’t entirely CBS’s fault.

Despite the fact that Bob Barker is synonymous with The Price Is Right the 88-year-old host isn’t a big fan of the new show with Drew Carrey. Well, he isn’t a fan of a few of the recent prizes that have been given away on The Price Is Right.

Barker, who ended nearly every episode by reminding viewers to have their pets spayed or neutered, said that he was upset that the producers recently gave away trips to SeaWorld and the Calgary Stampede.

Barker told TV Guide:

“I don’t know why I wasn’t asked to take part in some way… But I do know I am ashamed of the show and surprised at their complete disregard for the welfare of animals. Were I still there, a prize to attend the Calgary Stampede would never have been considered. We never did anything that condoned animal cruelty. Apparently, things have changed.”

Barker added:

“They previously gave away tickets to SeaWorld in Florida where the mistreatment of dolphins and whales is just unacceptable… When that happened, I phoned various producers and [personnel] at the show and left messages but nobody would return my calls. So when the Calgary Stampede prize came up I didn’t bother calling anyone there. I just went to the press and lashed out at the show every chance I could. And I let everyone in Canada know how I felt.”

Do you think Bob Barker is right to be upset with The Price is Right?

    BOB BARKER IS VERY OUTSPOKEN AND CRITICAL. HE PROBABLY VOICED HIS CONCERNS AND RUBBED SOME POWERS THAT BE THE WRONG WAY. THEY DIDN'T WANT HIM TO SPOIL IT,,, I THINK,,, JUST A THEORY…

  2. Naomi Kronenberger

    Sorry BOB BARKER~ you had your time on the show~ now it's time ti sit down and shut -up! Drew Carey is just as popular as Barker ever was and not as much of a WOMANIZER! Get a life Bobby!

  3. Rick Van Duyne

    He is concerned about the welfare of animals? He is a dog that craps in the the yards of the women he cheated with while the husbands watch. Nice job Bob.

  4. Robert Farnham

    He should have been there he was the show Drew Carey is taking the show right down the sewer. Never have liked him as host. He just dose not care and when he tries to be funny he is not.

  5. Stefani Clowdis

    I love Bob Barker and I know he doesn't want anything exploiting animals on POR….also no foreign-made cars to be given as prizes…….he is amazing….please read his biography, "Priceless" you'll love it!

  6. Terra Cotta

    Bob Barker is a man of principal and has been a champion for animal rights for decades….not just advocating for them but donating vast amounts of his personal wealth and encouraging sponsors to do the same. With the current state of affairs at the Price is Right, I would count it an honor to be EXCLUDED from this event and I hope Mr. Barker feels the same. He has earned the admiration and respect of millions of people for his integrity and activism and needs no honor "show" to enhance his position. Its a shame that isn't true for the others at CBS.

    well bob is better off not being on the damn show any way hell I don, t like the new show and I don, t like drew carry.

    Sorry Bob, but your time on Price is Right is over. How many lawsuits were you involved with during your time on Price is Right due to the way you treated your women staff? Maybe if you treated the women who worked for you as well as you want alley cats to be treated you may have been asked back.

    Bob had his ups and downs, but mostly ups. he was the Price of Right.

    I agree, IN PRINCIPLE w/ Mr. Barker in regards to having pets spayed/neutered, to control OVERPOPULATION & STRAYS, but HIS ANIMAL WELFARE STANCE is OFF-BASE to a DEGREE, MISGUIDED, While I am NO FAN of Rodeo, IT showcases skills that were NEEDED to raise CATTLE to send to MARKET so MANKIND can have BEEF to eat, which is NECESSARY source of PROTEIN & other Vitamins & Minerals.

    The Seaworld does it's BEST to NOT be CRUEL, but I can SEE HIS POINT Re: That Establishment.

  12. Robert Dileo

    Bob Barker "IS" The Price is Right". Drew ruined this show by letting the contestants take over the show. Bob "Never" let them say hello to everyone when spinning the wheel. Drew took away the excitement from the wheel and let the idiot contestants take over…GET RID OF DREW….it's just not the same anymore….

    Frankly, since Bob Barker retired from The Price is Right, I have not cared to watch the show anymore. Drew Carey is definitely not a great game show host. Bob Barker was the very best!

    Bob probably into beastiality that's why he is so upset about giving away vacations to Sea World and other Parks that showcase any type of animals, also Bob they sure do taste GREAT.

    Absolutely, Bob is right. He made the show what it is today. He should still have a voice. And, by all means, should have ben invited back. Maybe the producers were afraid of what Bob might say regarding those prizes (Seaworld and Calgary Stampede). But I think Bob has more class than to do it. and I think all of the contestants who returned for the 40th Anniversary would have loved seeing Bob.

  19. Connie Harville

    By foreign made cars do you mean gm and ford cause toyota, honda, mercedes, and nissan are made here while the others are made in mexico and china

  20. Brenda Toyer

    well maybe it was your time to retire and all good things must come to an end, but one thing I know the show could've picked a better host. If you noticed Bob always asked the person "Do you want to say hello to anyone?" when they are at the wheel, Drew ask afterwards. A lot have to change because of a new host, but after 35 years of hosting no matter what, he was a very good host. Also you have to treat people the way that you want to be treated; Bob you have to remember that too.

    It still amazes me that people don't get the concept that jobs building foreign cars do not make them American cars. If you buy a foreign car, you are essentially helping to build the economy of a nation other than the United States because the bottom line profit goes to that country. As Americans, we should all be reading the labels of the items we buy &, whenever possible, buy American made goods.

    This is what I have never understood about misguided animals lovers. What is there to be outraged about. Animals are a lower member of the cycle of humans existence. Yes from time to time some are exploited by and/or used for the enjoyment of the people who control them much like some of you are by your boss at work or the government. Animals kill each other all the time in the wild to eat. That is how they survive. That is their purpose. What are you going to do have police go into the wild and make sure coyotes don't eat Bambi. That is part of the life cycle of the earth. That's what has allowed the earth to work for thousands of years and must continue for it to work properly. Trust me the animals don't know any better or care. That why psychologists have the term animals instincts. Look it up. It sure doesn't refer to anything pleasant. Animals are what they are. They can't talk to you, they can't reason with you and they can't procreate with you. Animals are meant to be used as beasts of burden and for eating. They may get hurt from time to time performing their duties just like people do, but it's not the end of the world. Please quit acting like they are on the same emotional and psychological level as people. Come on Bob find a more educated cause. Maybe you should be encouraging people to worry more about getting themselves spayed or neutered than their pets.

    Yes, he definitely should have been invited. And the Calgary Stampede is synonymous with cruel and inhumane treatment of animals.

  39. Christiane Bagnato

    I'm not surprised Bob Barker put his two cents into the mix knowing how he feels about animals. I'm also not surprised the producers of TPIR decided to give patronage to these money grubbing concerns. It's no longer about integrity or decency. It's the money, stupid!

  42. Priscilla Smith

    I quit watching price is right when bob barker retired he made that show and it sucks now that drew carey is host the show is going down hill bob made that show what it was when he left the show might as well retired also because its definitely not the same and they couldn't have picked a worse host he talks to fast u cant understand drew.

    Connie Harville , yes GM, Ford, and chrysler moved most of there plants out of the united states to get away from the unions, and labor cost, and taxes, but the bottom line is there profits still support america, the foreign cars that have assembly plants here do help the workers but they do not support america, nor do there profits come here—support america means support america, what part of that don't you understand.

    Good for Bob to speak up. I have had respect for him because of what he does to help animals, same with Betty White. Even if the show producers and execs had a problem with him they could have at least invited him for a big show. Even if he would have said no it would have been nice. I agree with an earlier post, Drew does not seem to care at all.

    BB is absolutely entitled to his opinion, but doesn't seem to realize that others are entitled to theirs as well. The producers are responsible for the image of the show so they can decide who they want representing it.

    You tell 'em Bob. You don't promote the misuse of animals! Now women, on the other hand, treat them like skanks whenever you get the chance.

  50. Carolyn Dolan

    I've been a fan of the Price Is Right since the beginning and I'm with you Bob! It's not the same show. I was so sorry to see you leave the show. I'm thankful that you are still attempting to have input into the prizes and the show in some way. If the producers don't listen to you, they will lose people like us who have long supported them! Listen to Bob! I wish the Price Is Right would have more animals on the show who are up for adoption.

  51. Alana McDermott

    But NOT women's BFF..because on his show and the pageants he hosted he constantly groped any women he came across. My sister was one of them and it was a horrible experience for her that she never forgot….I think this is why they have washed their hands of him…HUGE LIABILITY!

  52. Jeff Rickels Sr

    Connie Harville Let's see, we have a Malibu (made in Michigan), a new Escape (made in Louisville) and just got rid of another Escape (made in Kansas City). Boy, are you uninformed.

  53. Jen Anne Ritter

    funny how he is against animla cruelty, but treating the women he worked with on the show like meat and sex objects is more than fine. Maybe the multiple sexual harassment lawsuits against him has something with his horny old ass not being 'invited' back.

  54. Scott Harbison

    No offense to Bob Barker or Drew Carrey. I'm sure there are few people who remember the original host, Bill Cullen. IMHO, he was far better than his successors. He was really first-class…and funny! And he also quietly overcame a physical disability, polio, I think. He was a great role model.

  55. Jack D Howard

    From Bob Barker and game shows, to…..Drew Carey: representing modern Lame Shows.

  56. Rake Maker

    ya know Bob I think you are a controlling, greedy, crooked, insincere, opportunist ass hole but I have to agree with you on this. Whales, dolphins, monkeys, Graffias, elephants and every other caged zoo animal should be released and we are one piece of shit species to think we should be able to cage these poor animals for our own pleasure. Zoo's are full of shit and crooked to boot. If God wanted everyone to see these magnificent creatures he would have put them all over the planet or given us all a good enough job to take an African Safari vacation. Now go to hell Barker you ass wipe I agree with nothing else you stand for. You user of slag models.

But that doesn't excuse the slag he banged Janice or whatever her name was because if she was slag enough and stupid enough to bag that bastard she got what she deserved. It's the ones that are innocent that I hope he burns in hell for. He is an aloof and self centered piece of shit. However he is right about the animals.

    I loved Bob and watched the Price is Right every day I was off work and taped it when I couldn't be there. He made that show and Drew and no one else can ever make it what it was when Bob was with it. I hated it when Bob left. I do still watch it but only when I'm home, I don't waste any time taping it any longer. it's not the same. I work with animals myself and I have as well been disappointed with the gifts and think they are getting more and more less. After all the years Bob put on the show and made the show and brought such a huge audience, the least they could have done was allow him to come back for an anniversary. But Bob I still love you no matter what and I hope you are enjoying your retirement and not worrying about pettiness. You're the best still in my book!

  130. Anonymous

    I'm pretty sure Bob Barker was an executive producer on TPIR. And as long as the show is still on the air, he receives royalties. When he retired, he handpicked Drew. So if he regrets it, too late now. He should enjoy his retirement and his millions or billions. And Shut Up And Quit Crying.

  131. Anonymous

    Bob's very much entitled to his opinions about some of the show's prizes. The show's producers are also just as entitled to ignore them. And we the audience have the right to not watch the show if we think Drew Carey sucks as a host (which he does, BTW.) Isn't America great!

  132. Russell Dyess

    Heaven forbid the people playing the outdated craptastic show have a little fun. I can't believe they would lessen the solemn dignity and importance of spinning a giant wheel, with shout outs to the folks at home. So make like the Alpine Climber and go throw yourself off a mountain. The only thing Drew Carey is guilty of is prolonging the life of a show that should have died 35 years ago.

  133. Denine V. Heinemann

    Love BB, love his passion and advocacy for animals, and love him for speaking up about what he felt was wrong. GOOD FOR HIM, not afraid of the suits over at TPIR. Sea World? Please……………BB is absolutely right and I haven't watched the show since he left.

  134. Norm Snyder

    I'm disappointed the producers of the show didn't include him either. He is a huge part of the show's sucess over the generations. And, as far as lawsuits go Ms. Zabivnik, you weren't there. Anyone in the public eye is subject to frivilous suits and to my knowledge none of the claims by his female staff over the years were proven in court. He has a reputation for being a kind and good hearted man–and we should leave it that way!

  135. Lynn Crossno

    there would have not been a price of right, if not for bob barker and before you say things about him you should have been there. the girls was just as bad. they should have ask him back. that was the right thing to do.

  136. Jayne Walkowe-Long

    Shame on the price is right! he was there 35 of the 40 years and Drew does not seem like he fits the spot! Bob should have been there he is known as MR. PRICE IS RIGHT – I don't watch the new ones its just not the same.

  137. James Lockridge

    Actually Bill Cullen made TPIR what it is today. He hosted both daytime & nighttime versions of the show from its beginning in the '50's until the mid-70's when they HAD to hire "tacky, feel-'em-up Barker" because the classy Mr. Cullen had polio & could not walk around the stage in the updated version of the show.

  138. Aaron Dube

    The U.S. still gets a cut with the taxes from employees pay and on the cars they sell here. Just cause you buy an American product doesn't mean the money goes to America, It goes to the company. I support the people supplying jobs in a shitty economy, not the ones outsourcing jobs and penny pinching for top dollar. Just cause you start in the U.S. doesn't mean a thing unless your helping U.S. citizens!!!

  139. Suzie Rose

    ABSOLUTELY…Price is Right wouldn't still be around if Bob Barker hadn't emceed it for 35 years!

  140. Anita Weckwerth

    Bob Barker is my hero for sticking up for animals. It is all too common in our society to think it is okay to abuse animals, ie. stampedes, fur coats, SeaWorld, etc. when it is not okay, not if we are to protect innocent beings who deserve our help. Kudos to BB. I don't like Price of Right anymore anyway.

Used to watch it every day and now, wouldn't even give it the time of day. And remember, "have your pets spayed or neutered." Was in the local Animal Shelter today and there were so many surrendered and stray beautiful cats, there were at least two and sometimes 10 in every cage, of about 50 cages. People need to step up to the plate and visit a shelter and adopt a wonderful kitty, there are so many in need of good homes and the rewards are wonderful.

    I will NEVER watch the Price is Right from this day forward so BOB BAkER is too good to be asked to return for an airing of the 40th Anniversary how dare the CBS and or Drew Carey not to ask SO you just lost me as a viewer of this show – maybe just CBS and all its shows HMMMM let me think on this = no more Price is Right for me period.

    I can't speak for the Calgary Stampede in particular, but by and large, animals in rodeo are treated as athletes, with the utmost care for their welfare. I applaud and respect Barker for expressing his opinion, but IMO his criticism of rodeo is unwarranted. He should be commended on his "spay or neuter" comment at the end of each episode–I'm sure there are a lot fewer unwanted pets because of his influence.

    I think Barker should've been invited to the 40th-anniversary special. Even with his, um, indiscretions, he *WAS* that show. From the little I've seen of him, Carey's not bad–he has his own style, but he just doesn't take control of the show the way Barker did. He does well as a stand-up comic, but there could've been better choices for replacing Bob Barker.

    This is rich coming from this senile old pervert. His treatment of the shows models, Dian Parkinson, Holly Hollstrom, Janice Pennignton etc and the numerous behind the scenes female staff was abhorrent. Watch E True Hollywood Stories episode on Price, it might be on Youtube. Karma came back to bite him and it's a bitch huh Bob! You demanded that no mention of these girls who contributed just as much as you was ever mentioned in past anniversary shows that you participated in. Even the DVD box set "Best Of Price Is Right" you demanded no mention or footage of either Dian, Holly or Kathleen be allowed. So there is a 18 year gap in the set since you would not allow then to use footage with these girls so bitter were you and vindictive you were afraid they might have to be payed royalties. Made me so happy to see you were ignored this time too!

Made me so happy to see you were ignored this time too!

    P.S. Bob your the one who should have been spayed and neutered, would have saved you many many a lawsuit and mega$$$ payouts.

    good for you bob if I would have won a trip like that I would turn it down-i am all for people saving animals –miss ya on the show–it is not the same–

    Very stupid remark and all heresay … did you ever see him in court over any of this crap .. give me a break … how many of these daytime TV shows models actually go to bed with the MCs … the majority of them if they think they may rise to the top … get with the real world .. ."THE PRICE IS RIGHT" was Bob Barker's legacy … Drew Carey Sucks Big time and I too will no longer watch it because of that .. so I agree wtih Bob … no matter what you might think, you're way off on this subject … you should keep on reading comments …. most are much better than yours that's for darn sure.

  159. Lill McCray

    Alana McDermott … This I seriously doubt and IT'S NOT THE REASON HE'S NO LONGER WITH THE SHOW … he became an old man and it had to be rough on him …. "HE RETIRED" which he should have … if he were younger he'd still be there and who knows where that Creep Carey would be … as the bottom of some cesspool no doubt…. he is not an MC or Host or a decent anything and has absolutely no personality … in otherwords "HE SUCKS"!!!! They lost a lot of their daytime viewers that's for sure … you should read on and on here …

  160. Lill McCray

    Robert Farnham … I do so agree with you but Bob deserved his retirement .. he was growing old but it was still his legacy and always will be in my book as I for one certainly no longer watch it and have no intentions of ever doing so … Drew Carey sucks big time and is not even a decent commentator … no personality at all.

  161. Elisabeth Bertolucci

    Loved Bob Barker and still do. I watch The Price is Right for the games, but I DO NOT watch for Drew Carey. He is a clown and even puts down the products he is promoting. He is extremely low class and when he says to have your pets spayed and neutered, he couldn't care less. Don't worry, Bob, we know that you're the real Price is Right. Thank you for your animal rights views; you're one class-act who really cares and has made a difference in your life.

  162. Lill McCray

    Prove all this crap beyond heresay …. women just threw themselves at him hoping to move up in the world .. well that doesn't always work as the majority of them found out .. .you need to do your homework before putting your foot in you mouth …

  163. Lill McCray

    Russell Dyess …DREW CAREY SUCKS and did so waaaay before the "PRICE IS RIGHT" was added to his list … he sucks on that as well …. "NO PERSONALITY" … DOESN'T FIT IN WITH THE HUMAN RACE ….

  164. Lill McCray

    I would say "MOST LIKELY" since Clinton and Obama are kissing each other's asses at the moment …

    Then don't reflect on the past if only the new blood prevails. If you're going to celebrate a show's history, then the person largely responsible for it's sucess should be included in the celebration!

    Am I the only person who thinks that The Price Is Right with Drew Carey is actually pretty good? It started out pretty rough but I think that Drew has found himself and has given the show new life… Bob Barker is legendary, but let's face it: he was starting to have a lot of "senior moments" on air. The show feels young and fresh again. THAT BEING SAID, a 40th anniversary show without Bob Barker is no show at all. The producers are INSANE for excluding him.

    Read my posts and videos I attached on this story dickwadd before you rush to judge me. then you can comment.

    Before Bob Barker it was Bill Cullen he was the real Price is Right. Barker was just a copy cat, and not a good one at that.

    You must be one of them, so I will take my foot out of my mouth to say I am sorry he hurt you and I promise he will never touch you there again.

  171. Jen Anne Ritter

    well,it's hard to keep track,really,since everyday there are so many celebrities dying. I sometimes am not sure,either!

  172. Connie Harville

    ronald abney sr and jeff rickels sr look again by the workers who pay taxes the plants help out charities here and employ people who wouldn't have a job yes a lot of the money stays here my husband and son work and are paid well without having to pay union dues thank you and as for the other I am am informed you better look again at percentage made here and what is put together here you would be the one surprised

  173. Anna Ballance-Brown

    the ones in my family who are home in the mornings, refuse to watch the price is right now! we think you all should be greatly ashamed of yourselves! hope u lose many fans! BOB BARKER RULZ.

  174. Carolyn Brown Forrest

    Lill, have you ever heard the saying "where there is smoke, there is fire"? One story might be sour grapes, but numerous people with the same complaint, usually means there is something there. You don't pay people off when there is nothing to hide. I am not for or against Barker, I really don't care one way or the other, since I was never a fan of the show to begin with, but before you go condemning the girls with the complaints, it might be wise to find out the facts first and not just 'assume' they are all vindictive and spouting crap.

    I'm a Cleveland girl and I love the direction tpir is heading. Fans are so excited that y&r and b&b had to reschedule their taping around the show because everybody is having such a great time. Keep on drew – have fun – (notice no lawsuits either???? Hhhhhmmmm)

    Drew Carey is bringing a positive face to NE Ohio/Cleveland. And according to what I've read, the ratings (popularity) are up. GO DREW & TPIR!

    I agree. I watched the show from the very original Price Is Right with Bill Cullen in the 1950's & 60's. and if you listen very closely to Bob, he was very rude to some contestants. Notice how he always reacted to people when they wanted to say hi to family and friends. When contestants asked if they could say hello to their mom, his common response was – "You just did" There were more seniors called down to contestants row than other age groups. He was stuck on himself. Thought his sh** didn't stink. The model Dian Parkinson was with the show 18 years. Then she got the boot. Parkinson filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court (case no. BC106366) against Barker for sexual harassment, claiming a three-year sexual relationship was extorted by threats of firing from The Price Is Right. The suit was withdrawn in April 1995, Parkinson claiming it was too costly and had taken a toll on her health. It is said that Bob Barker cleaned house of the high price models because of the cost to him to pay for his lawyers in the lawsuit.

    russell dyess – Bob didn't like people saying hello to family and friends back home.
    That never happened on Hee Haw — on each show they saluted every tiny town in the good ole U. S. of A
    INTERNATIONAL FALLS, MINNESOTA – SALUTE

    I love the fact that the newer version lets the models talk, has male models & I bet Drew isn't sleeping w/ any of them like Bob did after his wife died. I like the modern version bc they are down to earth & make things a little more fun. Bob was great but I got over it. I've never met Bob but Drew was very nice in person.
