    I guess his appearance was a surprise to the audience at the time (but also not so, given the theme), but it won’t be to viewers. :)

    Bob Barker will always be 100x better than Drew Carey. Still missed Barker after 35 years hosting The Price is Right and it made me cry to see him retired. Still don’t know if Drew Carey can do better than Barker was if he’s going to be on his best behavior as a game show host and not acting all crazy and messing things up in his head.

    Bob Barker was and is a nasty, hateful old man.
