Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Long-running CBS game show The Price Is Right is launching its first casting call to find a male model, reports TVLine.com.  The chosen candidate will join Amber Lancaster, Gwendolyn Osborne, Manuela Arbelaez and Rachel Reynolds to help highlight prizes available to lucky contestants.

The search for a male model will begin on Aug. 30, with an open call in Los Angeles, where the four hostesses will join the show’s producers for a round of interviews with prospective candidates. The hopefuls will demonstrate verbal skills as well as posing prowess to demonstrate how to “properly showcase a product.”

At a later stage in the audition process, candidates will appear on camera where their presentation skills will be further tested. Up to six finalists will be announced on Sept. 28, and a five-episode Web series will be launched. Viewers will get their chance to vote on Oct. 4 for a favorite, who will be awarded with a one-week stint on the The Price Is Right with host Drew Carey.

Details of the contest can be found on the show’s website.
