Bob Barker returns to daytime television and he won’t be telling people the actual retail price. Taking time to help the animals, the former talk show host is looking to raise more awareness by sharing his name in a story arc on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” According to TV Fanatic on Friday, the three-day animal rescue arc will have the cameo of the legendary talk show host and bring more awareness to the issues of animal care.
“The Bold and the Beautiful” spoiler doesn’t just stop with Bob Barker as the show is going further into the story. They also scouted out the best location for the show with the story to show a real shelter scenario. Offering up locations in Los Angeles, the real humane society buildings are expected to be seen in the show too. Giving the story a real feel, it appears this soap opera is going to have a big impact on the social issue.
In Barker’s cameo role the long-time animal rights supporter is interviewed by Liam Spencer (played by actor Scott Clifton) for a feature article. The issue of the article is how to control the pet population. Knowing that Bob Barker has always talked about controlling the pet population, he seems to be the perfect fit for the story. However, since the show was scripted, he had to learn lines for the first time ever to be on television.
The 90-year-old former talk show host must feel pretty passionate about this story or he would not have gone back to the studio for the special appearance. Being on the show as himself, there definitely is a special element to having the man who many know has done substantial work on behalf of the animals. Along with Betty White, the two legendary stars have done more to help animals than most of the Hollywood celebrities combined.
