Bob Barker is a retired television game show host. He is widely recognised for hosting CBS’s The Price Is Right show from 1972 to 2007. For nearly a decade, he has not been in the spotlight, making his fans wonder if he is okay. Is Bob Barker still alive?
Is Bob Barker Still Alive?
The former TV personality is alive. After retiring from The Price Is Right show, he made several guest appearances on the show. For instance, he celebrated his 90th birthday there. He also made a surprise appearance on 1 April 2015, during Fool’s Day. His absence from the media since 2015 has resulted in speculations about his demise. The other factor contributing to the assumptions is that he has had a few health issues. While working, he had a few bouts of skin cancer, which he stated was due to spending much time in the sun. At 75, he was also diagnosed with a blocked left carotid artery, where he was operated on and quickly recovered.
Bob’s wife, Dorothy Jo Gideon, died in 1981 at 57 due to lung cancer. The two tied the knot on 12 December 1945. Since his wife’s death, the American former TV host has never married. In an interview, he revealed that he had no plans of remarrying. He stated, For some men, maybe a second or third marriage would work out fine. In my case, I had my marriage, and she was the love of my life.
