Bob Barker Net Worth $70 Million

If you wonder how rich Bob Barker is, it has been estimated that Bob’s net worth is $70 million. This sum might still change in the future.

Robert William Barker, also known as Bob Barker, was born in 1923, in Washington. Bob studied at Drury College, which now is known as Drury University. He also served as a fighter pilot during World War II. After the war ended Bob continued his studies and graduated with a degree in economics. While still studying, Barker started to work at one of the radio stations. In 1950 he even got his own radio show, and this of course made Bob Barker’s net worth grow. Over time, Bob became more and more popular.

In 1956 he received an invitation to host the show called “Truth or Consequences”. Being the host of this show has been one of the main sources of Bob Baker’s net worth. The show was really popular, but it ended in 1974. After a year Bob started to host another show entitled “End of the Rainbow”, but this show did not last long. Later he also hosted such shows as “The Family Game”, “That’s My Line” and “Simon Says”. This also added to Barker’s net worth.

In 1972 Bob started to host one of his most famous shows, called “The Price Is Right”. This show helped Bob to gain popularity and acclaim. He even worked as the executive producer of this show. In 2007 Bob decided to leave the show and hosted his last episode. Despite the fact that Bob did not work as a host on this show he still appeared in some of its special episodes.

In addition to his career as a television host, Barker has also appeared in several movies and television shows, for example “Happy Gilmore”, “Something So Right”, “The Nanny”, “How I Met Your Mother” and others. All these appearances made Bob Barker’s net worth grow.

Finally, it could be said that Bob Barker is one of the most successful television hosts. During his career, he gained a lot of experience and knows what it takes to make a good and popular show. The proof that Bob is acclaimed in the industry is a long list of awards and honors received by him. Although Barker is 90 years old, he still sometimes appears in different projects, let’s hope that this will continue for a long time.

#Fact
1 Barker made a guest appearance on The Price Is Right (1972), on April 1, 2015. In fact, he led the first bid and the pricing game, which was "Lucky $even.".
2 Was idolized by: Bob Goen, Pat Finn, Wayne Cox, Adam Sandler, Rosie O'Donnell, Wayne Brady, Ron Pearson, Jimmy Pardo, Graham Elwood, Todd Newton, Guy Fieri, J.D. Roth and Marc Summers.
3 Lifelong friends with Wink Martindale, Bill Cullen and Gene Rayburn.
4 Had feuded with Betty White.
5 Despite his busy schedule with his daytime show, the job for The Price Is Right (1972) nighttime was given to Tom Kennedy, in 1985. Unlike Barker, and like fellow game show host Bill Cullen, Kennedy's job became too demanding, as well.
6 Unlike his fellow game show host Richard Dawson, Barker had been kissed by females on his cheek.
7 Had complained of vision problems while exercising. After a visit to his doctor, he was sent to see a neurologist, who told Barker he had had a mild stroke. He recovered and went back to work to tape the start of the 20th Season of The Price Is Right (1972). [1991].
8 The police and rescue personnel were summoned nearby Barker's Los Angeles-area home, where they found the game show host tripped and fell on his head on the sidewalk, where the ambulance rushed him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, for lacerations on his head that were not seriously injured. He was soon recovered. [22 October 2015].
9 Won the 2009 WWE Slammy Award for Best Raw Guest Host, just a couple days after his 86th Birthday. [14 December 2009].
10 As of 2015, Barker has survived a series of health problems over the years, from a mild stroke, to a carotid endarterectomy, to a stroke, to prostate surgery, to skin cancer, to an adverse drug reaction and finally to a fall.
11 During GSN's 2009 Game Show Awards, Barker was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by Tom Bergeron. However, prior to the taping of the awards, Barker and Betty White were involved in a feud between the two of them over a plan to relocate an elephant to a sanctuary in San Andreas. In response, Barker threatened that he would not show up at the ceremony if White was there. White did not appear at the ceremony, however taped a dedication to Mark Goodson. [6 June 2009].
12 He is known to be a very private man.
13 His idol was Buddy Ebsen. In fact, when Barker was growing up, he was a huge fan of his.
14 Is a Republican.
15 Was a spokesperson for the public service announcement, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), in 2011.
16 His wife, Dorothy Jo Gideon Barker, died on October 19, 1981, at age 57.
17 As a young man, he used to listen to Bill Cullen's very first radio show.
18 Never had any children.
19 Barker's long life has contributed to exercising, eating vegetables and genetics.
20 Hobbies: golfing, karate, dining out, pets, gardening and playing games.
21 Was a spokesperson for the public service announcement, promoting the transition to Digital Television in the United States. The advertisement was produced under the first proposed date of February 16, 2009, for the transition.
22 Like fellow game show hosts, Bill Cullen, Gene Rayburn, Geoff Edwards and Wink Martindale, Barker was known to be a very busy television personality.
23 His birthplace, Darrington, Washington, is 46 miles, north of Everett, Washington.
24 Long lives ran in his family.
25 Was a semi-regular on Dinah! (1974). The most coincidental thing is her show was taped in the same studio as The Price Is Right (1972). Even more incredible was Barker did original stunts on The New Truth and Consequences (1950), on her show.
26 Does not sing, act nor dance.
27 It was his late wife, Dorothy Jo, who had a love for animals, before Barker followed her.
28 On one of the tapings of The Price Is Right (1972), a young lady had unfortunately chosen to wear a tiny tube top that warm day in 1977, when she sat in the studio audience awaiting that fateful call. When Johnny Olson called her name, she did that and more. As she bounded down the stairs, she was blissfully unaware that her top had slid down to a precarious level. When Barker eventually took the stage, he suspected that the cheers, hoots and hollers were not necessarily directed towards him.
29 Had a weekly show for Southern California Edison, the electric power company, which aired locally on CBS. With Dorothy Jo, who was his producer, he traveled to two cities a day to visit Edison's "Electric Living Centers," where he interviewed homemakers about the latest electrical wonders.

33 On a taping of The Price Is Right (1972), he had a contestant playing 3 Strikes Plus, where somebody partially drew a chip out of the bag, then quickly put it back in before anyone else could see what it was. A few seconds later, the contestant drew the number and won. Although the show's staff has never publicly accused the contestant of cheating, 3 Strikes Plus, was not to be played again.
34 On The Price Is Right (1972), Barker's producers changed the design of the bag to make it harder for contestants to "peek" at the disks, and they probably figured that was enough of a security. Also from this point until the mid-90s, Bob would often instruct the contestant to 'not look at the number until you have it clear out of the bag.'.
35 Met fellow game show hosts Wink Martindale and Jim Lange, while working in the Chuck Barris Studios, in Los Angeles, California, prior to becoming a game show host in 1967. The other host in the same studio was Bob Eubanks.

44 After his 35-year stint as host of The Price Is Right (1972), he retired from hosting game shows, in June 2007, at age 83. Prior to his retirement, Barker made a cameo appearance with Drew Carey to promote his book, 'Priceless Moments,' when he was featured in the showcase, in 2009.

#Quote
1 A true gentleman to work for. A wonderful boss. A visionary. The man pretty much invented the game show genre. One of the true pioneers of television.
2 Richard (Dawson), or as his close friends would call him "Dickie", was one of my closest friends in the business. We lunched frequently, went out for drinks frequently. I remember when he told me he got the Family Feud job, I tried to give him advice that he would have to tone down his behavior from how he was on Match Game. He told me, "Bob, I'm not you, I'm not Charlie Charming." He found his own way to host that show, and found tremendous success in the process. One of the rare talents in the business. A sharp mind and a quick wit. I miss him everyday.
3 Richard (Dawson) hated being called a game show host. He saw himself as an actor, comedian, an all around entertainer. As Family Feud gained popularity, he started adding more talk show like elements, which the producers hated and some of our fellow colleagues in the business thought was poor form. Richard didn't care and kept doing that. Since the ratings initially were good, he got away with it. However, once they started slipping, the network forced his hand, telling him less jokes, more game. He hated being told what to do, so his effort and attitude in hosting the show dropped and it soon suffered and was cancelled. I think he saw (Family) Feud as a stepping stone to a gig like Johnny Carson, and unfortunately that never panned out. Even with his success, I think he saw his career as somewhat of a disappointment because of that.
4 Alex (Trebek) personifies the saying know what your show is and own it. He knows Jeopardy! is a serious quiz show and he hosts it in that manner. Cut from the same mold as Allen Ludden, keep the nonsense to a minimum and hold the show to a high standard of class.
5 [Who announced on his 90th Birthday on The Price Is Right (1972)]: Thrill of accomplishment, after 35 years to finally, be able to say, 'Come on Down.' You know, wherever I go, people on the street will say, 'Hey, Bob, Come on Down!'
6 [When he threw several punches on The Bold and the Beautiful (1987)]: I thought it was a wonderful idea because Happy Gilmore is still playing on television frequently and everybody loved that fight scene.
7 [Who clarified about his fall]: I started to fall forward, and I didn't want to land on the cement so I twisted and landed right over here but my head was on the cement and so I cut my head all up and cut my knee and scraped it.
8 [Who defended actress Mia Farrow who tweeted on the Lion Killer Address on Twitter]: Well, if by publicizing his address they can make him miserable, I say publicize that address. Because this man deserves to be made miserable for years to come
9 [Who fondly remembers him in that one scene of Happy Gilmore (1996)]: People love that movie, the young men particularly. I never taped a Price is Right after the movie release that the audience didn't want to, during commercials, talk about Happy Gilmore. They loved it. They asked me all sorts of things. The young men would ask me, 'In real life, could you really whip Adam Sandler?' I would tell them, 'Are you kidding? Adam Sandler couldn't whip Regis Philbin.' I'm in fighting frame, fit to fight. Adam has been abusing his body.
10 [Of Bill Todman]: He was a delightful man. He personified a man you might aspire to be: a gentleman, personable, successful, handsome and very intelligent. He had the attributes to sell you anything, and the intelligence to sell it beautifully. On one of my first days there, we chatted alone. His kindness and flattering remarks, that he'd admired my work [as host of Truth or Consequences] made me feel very comfortable, very much at home.
11 [When Drew Carey would do The Price Is Right (1972) at Barker's blessing]: Drew has done exactly what I would advise any young host to do, which is to not worry about how it was done before. You've got to go out there and do the show the way you want to do it. It's your show.
12 [on 'The Price is Right' offering a trip to the Calgary Stampede as a prize] If I had been there, it would never in the world have happened. This Calgary Stampede is just an egregious example of inhumane treatment for animals. To give that prize away, I think, is disgusting.
13 I can tell you that I'd rather be kissed by my dogs than by some people I've known.
14 On the birth of the 1,200-ton anti-whaling ship, The Bob Barker: Paul Watson said he thought he could put the Japanese whaling fleet out of business if he had $5 million. I said, 'I think you do have the skills to do that, and I have $5 million, so let's get it on,' so that's what we did.
15 [when he wasn't familiar with Drew Carey's performances for his choosing as his own replacement on The Price Is Right (1972) in 2007]: I understand he ad-libs very well and that he has a very nice, friendly way of working, and I think both of those would be helpful to him on 'The Price Is Right.'
16 [about when he will retire from The Price Is Right (1972)] I don't know what else I would do. I don't have a family to look after and my wife [Dorothy Jo] has passed on to a better place. I love my job, as long as I enjoy coming to work everyday and have a bounce in my step, I'll keep doing it.
17 [about how he would do if he was a contestant instead of the host on The Price Is Right (1972)] I don't do my own shopping, my housekeeper does that for me, so I'd be doomed if I was a contestant on the show.
18 [about his decision to stop coloring his hair during the 1987-1988 season] The producers and executives at CBS were very hesitant about it initially, but I knew that a change had to be made. Once my hair was starting to look more red and yellow than brown, I knew that the days of getting my hair to have its natural color were long gone and it was time to face the facts that I was getting older. Though it surprised and shocked fans initially when I let my hair go gray, they stuck behind me and the show stayed strong.
19 You cannot accept that . . . when you see animals in pictures, you are putting them at risk.
20 I'm a vegetarian - I think there's a strong possibility, had I not become a vegetarian, I would not be working now. I became a vegetarian about 25 years ago, and I did it out of concern for animals. But I immediately began having more energy and feeling better.
21 Don't go to them, do not go to movies in which there are animals, because if you do, you are subsidizing animal cruelty.

#Trademark
1 The catchphrase "You're over!"
2 White hair
3 Always uses a wired microphone with a marble top
4 Always closes the show with the phrase, "Help Control The Pet Population, Have Your Pets Spayed Or Neutered."
