BOB BARKER | 98
Fans, both young and old, probably know Bob Barker as the host of the classic TV game show The Price is Right on CBS. The journey towards his prominence was not an easy one, though. Barker was not born affluent and was enlisted in the army to go off to the Second World War. It was in 1950 when he started working in the broadcasting industry and eventually found a love for hosting. Although he has been retired from the show for more than a decade, he is still best known for his time in the longest-running daytime game show in North American television history. In fact, he is an icon because of it.
In the later episodes, Bob started to end the show by reminding their audience to control the pet population by having their pets spayed or neutered. This showed his love of animals, which was followed by the series succeeding hosts, like Drew Carrey, Jack Barry, and Bert Convy. Credits to their effort, they help to change their viewer’s minds in caring for their pets.
