Really hope that The Price is Right should fire both Mike Richards the executive producer and Stan Blits the co-producer and the man responsible for contestants to COME ON DOWN.

My very important message to the models on The Price is Right: STOP WAVING ON CAMERA. These ladies always doesn’t have brains instead of beauty and absolutely ZERO TALENT.

When Drew Carey took over for Bob Barker back in the Fall of 2007, I started to like him but now he’s been a poor man’s Bob Barker and of course Drew is still not in the same level Barker was and I think outrage Price fans wants Drew Carey to be fired no matter how many years he’ll be hosting depending on his contract.

Happy to see Drew Carey recovering from his neck surgery. Really wish Drew should have his own bodyguard to protect him if a contestant doesn’t want to hurt him like crazy. Not even Bob Barker should have his own bodyguard.

Here are the pricing games I really hate on The Price is Right: Any Number, Check Game, Check-Out, Danger Price, Gas Money, Golden Road, Grocery Game, Lucky Seven, One Away, Pathfinder, Pocket Change, Stack the Deck, Temptation, That’s Too Much, Three Strikes and Triple Play.

This could go one of two ways for The Price is Right if the execs at CBS Daytime needs to pay attention: either they FIRED Drew Carey and replaces with someone that knows the rules and the brains that Bob Barker once was and not as funny than Drew Carey is or the show will end in the near future depending if the ratings plummet. I still think Bob Barker is the best Price is Right host EVER and Drew Carey continues to be the show’s biggest problem to everyone including me and he hasn’t done as great than he once was and never will be and he always talks too much which makes me very annoying. When will Drew Carey and the models stay on the show because of their contracts? As for contestants, they better stop acting all crazy and be on their best behavior and Mike Richards the producer of the show is going to have some explaining to do before I sued him and the entire staff. My message to the models: stop waving your hands on camera because you still don’t have ZERO talent.

I’ve been watching this show every since I was 3 years old and it’s kind of hard to believe it’s been on more than 40 years. I grew up with Bob Barker and when he retired, it was like a close friend or family member had passed away. Then Drew Carey takes over. I thought he was a great choice since he’d previously hosted on “Whose Line?” which had kind of a mock “game show” format. Drew didn’t really catch on at first since fans weren’t originally sold on the fact that a comedian was replacing a tried-and-true game show host like Barker. I for one think Drew is doing a great job, even after a rough start and his drastic weight loss. Given all the changes on the show since Drew took over, there are some things I don’t get. Why does all of the music have to sound like Justin Bieber instead of the “classic” 70s/80s cues Bob had for so many years? And does Rachel need to be every episode with one other model? Some things much better left alone, which explains why the show has retained the same hourlong format it’s had for 4 decades. Long story short, TPIR isn’t going anywhere. It’ll be years and years before viewers finally get tired of yahoos wanting to play Plinko, spin the big wheel or win a new car.

I disagree with you Steven. Day after day. Week after week. Month after month. I still have no idea on when Price is Right will ever going to end because of “ratings”. The real problem is that the show hasn’t been the same when Drew Carey took over for Bob Barker back in 2007. I have no idea on when Drew and the models will stay on the show because of THEIR FREAKIN’ CONTRACTS. People still needs to stop watching Price is Right if they’re going to be ignored because if they don’t, blame it on everybody. Perhaps if someone pulls a middle finger on camera. BTW, change The Price is Right’s advisory ratings board from TV-G to TV-PG.


Kevin October 16, 2014 at 8:33 pm

My message to The Price is Right crew: no more guest models and bring back the regular models (Amber, Gwendolyn and Manuela) other than Rachel Reynolds the Jessica Simpson look-alike. Mike Richards and his Price is Right staff still haven’t learned their lesson and they continued to be ignored by Price fans who are still outraged.


Tran October 16, 2014 at 1:55 pm

When oh when will The Price is Right EVER going to end?! The execs at CBS Daytime still doesn’t have a freakin’ answer and the people better give up watching a crappy game show with Drew Carey because it’s still SUCKS!! Ratings for The Price is Right still needs to go down the toilet. :-(


Tran October 16, 2014 at 11:22 am

I still have no freakin’ idea how long The Price is Right will EVER going to end because we’re stuck having a crappy host like Drew Carey, the models still have zero talent because they never going to stop waving their hands on camera even though they’re dumb and dumber, George Gray continues to be more cartoon-ish and Mike Richards the producer of the show continues to be a freakin’ idiot. As for the contestants, they’re always a bunch of brain dead losers and the person who picks someone to “come on down” should get FIRED. THE PRICE IS RIGHT IS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE! End Price is Right in 2016 or 2017 or else…


Tran September 3, 2014 at 8:15 pm

My advice to the Price is Right staff: FIRE DREW CAREY because he’s still not in the level Bob Barker was in and they better fire Mike Richards as producer of the show.


Tran May 21, 2014 at 5:21 pm

On The Price is Right, why the models on the show always waving their hands on camera? One word: OBSESSION. They’re too dumbfounded and almost have ZERO TALENT and they’re too “chicken”. My advice to the beautiful models, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Do something else other than waving your hands when someone is too shy and stop acting like cheerleaders or beauty pageant contestants and they need to be on their best (model) behavior and not acting like immature adults and use of body language.


Tran May 20, 2014 at 6:08 pm

My advice to the “crazy” contestants on The Price is Right: if you attempt to hurt or harm Drew Carey, the models and George Gray, a number of security guards will come over there and they will arrest you and receive a RESTRAINING ORDER.


Tran May 19, 2014 at 6:39 pm

The Price is Right needs to get canceled in the next few years because Drew Carey still stinks and a poor replacement for Bob Barker. He talks too much, wasting everybody’s time and asking stupid questions to the contestants not to mention daydreaming with the models. What about his freaking contract meaning how many more years Drew will continue to host Price is Right?
