How Much Money Do the Models on the Price is Right Make Per Year?
If you’re anything like my mother, you watch the Price is Right every day and have for years.
You see those models smiling and waving their hands at all the products day in and day out.
It seems like a pretty good gig if you can get it.
Heck some of those women, and men, have been working for the show for years.
Did you know that when Bob Barker was the host of the show, the models were called Barker’s Beauties?
Once Drew Carey took over the job, he decided he didn’t want to give them a name. He just uses their first name or the term models.
But how much do they actually make?
Sources indicate that Price is Right models make about $100,000 per year for working on the show.
That works out to about $833 dollars per show as the show only films six months of the year for each season.
That’s not bad for 26 weeks’ worth of work. Over a decade you’re looking at a million dollars.
Of course, models have other gigs as well besides waving their arms over the daily showcase.
During times that they aren’t filming, they have other projects that will increase their income quite a bit.
While $100k sounds like a lot of money, and it is, it isn’t much of a fortune when you consider how much Drew Carey makes.
But being on the show certainly gives the models access to an opportunity that the average person wouldn’t have.

While we’re on the subject of the Price is Right, what is Drew Carey’s salary?

You could sure have some fun with that much money.
