Bob Barker to Appear on The Bold and The Beautiful

Bob Barker is returning to daytime CBS television in a new role.  The former host of "The Price is Right" will be guest starring in "The Bold and The Beautiful" starting on April 30th."  Barker is an Emmy award winning icon that gained his notoriety from hosting the game show from 1972 to 2007.


He has also been known for his trade mark sign-off, noted for saying at the end of almost every show, "Help control the pet population.  Have your pet spayed or neutered."  The daytime soap jumped at the opportunity to have an animal rights activist join their show for a story arc on protecting animal rights.


This is the second time that he will be appearing on the series.  The first time came in 2002 when he was invited to play a role in march of that year.  Barker will play himself during his 3 episode stint on the series.  His role will be to speak on issues that relate to pet population control.
According to CBS News, Barker will be interviews by Liam Spencer (Scott Cliffton) about an article on controlling the pet population.  In the scene, Barker is quoted as saying, "Animals can't speak for themselves, they depend on us to speak for them."


The executive producer and writer of the show Bradley Bell was interviewed by CBS news on the project to work with Bob Barker and said, “Having iconic TV personality and animal activist Bob Barker on the show is an honor. Bob is a highly respected advocate for animal rights and is an instrumental player in the storyline. Additionally, Los Angeles City Councilmember and former Police Chief Bernard Parks guest stars in a cameo role. Mr. Parks traveled on location with us to the South Los Angeles Animal Shelter, a remarkable facility for the care and rescue of animals that he was instrumental in building in his district. Both of these men are true heroes, and I am pleased that they are representing this important issue on The Bold and The Beautiful.”


The story arc also compelled the staff to adopt pets as part of the effort.  The most notable of the adopted pets is a cat Scott Cliffton took in, which he named Walter White.  Bob Barker is also a part of the Activists for Animal Rights and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
