I’m usually fond of most holidays and celebrating them and being festive and such. April Fools’ Day is not one of those holidays. In fact, one could consider me the Scrooge McDuck of that particular holiday (or regular Scrooge, if you want to be less awesome). I would delete it from existence if I had the god powers to do so.
Anyway! One thing great that did happen among the mess of trickery and pranks yesterday was the one and only Bob Barker returning to The Price is Right in a surprise appearance when current host Drew Carey was announced. And as you might have guessed, the place went totally nuts.
You can check out a video of Barker’s return to hosting duties below, as well as a cool behind the scenes with Barker and Carey taking some questions from the audience.
As you’ll see, even at 91 years of age, Barker still slips right back into the job he retired from almost eight years ago now as if he never left.
Barker has been busy lately, also recently reprising his role from Happy Gilmore in a bit with Adam Sandler.
