Former host of ‘The Price is Right’ Bob Barker turns 96


Thursday marks former ‘The Price is Right’ host Bob Barker’s 96th birthday.

Barker hosted the CBS game daytime game show for 35 years, beginning his run in 1972 and ending in 2007 when Drew Carey took over for him.

Barker first gained fame in the 1950s when he hosted ‘Truth or Consequences’ where contestants would have to do zany stunts for answering questions wrong.

Barker famously ended every episode by reminding viewers to spay and neuter their pets.
