Showcase Bro-Down: Price Is Right To Hire First-Ever Male Model
11:30 am, August 15th | by Amy Tennery
The tryout gauntlet will feature a series of complex tests bordering on reality show-proportions, according to details provided by CBS. Producers and current TPIR models will evaluate the male candidates on “qualities like verbal skills, posing and their ability to show off a product.” I don’t personally recall any of the Barker-Carey crew talking but I guess you never know.
After this first round, the candidates will “take part in a series of challenges” and previously eliminated candidates will have the chance to “win back” their slot in the competition at certain intervals. These challenges will gauge vague qualities like “on-camera presence.” It’s a Showcase Bro-down!
At some point in this madness, there is a “web portion” and a televised segment in which TPIR viewers have the chance to vote on the six model finalists. Call me a Debby Downer but this seems unnecessarily complicated.
The winner will debut on Monday, October 15, at which point he will move into his new home in the Victors’ Village and his district will receive extra rations for the rest of the year.
