Bob Barker has been retired for over a decade and is enjoying his free time. However, he has not forgotten his roots. He was the longtime host of the game show The Price is Right. Drew Carey took over when Bob retired in 2007. The 96-year-old says he still loves to tune in from time to time.
Reports show that Bob likes Drew and is still a big fan of the show. Bob lives in Hollywood and mainly stays at home. After two strokes and bad falls, he uses a wheelchair and has a full-time caretaker. Even so, Bob seems very happy with his life and looks back fondly on his career.
