Bob Barker, who recently filmed his last episode of the show, is supporting Rosie as an replacement.
“I believe they’re going to have a meeting with Rosie,” said Barker on Friday night. “She knows the show. There’s no doubt in my mind she could do the show. Now, whether they want a lady host, I don’t know. I’ve never heard that discussed. As far as I know, they’ve only auditioned men. She told me she loved ‘The Price Is Right’ and wanted to host it one day.”
I really don’t see how this could work. Instead of “Remember, get your pets spayed and neutered” we’d have “Remember, pull U.S. troops out of Iraq,” and I don’t think that would go over well with the large conservative portion of the show’s fanbase. I would, however, love to see Bob Barker do The View.
