By: Holly Brantley
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - After 35 years, Bob Barker appeared as the star of the Price is Right for the last time.
Some fans could hardly watch the popular host announce the last item up for bids.
"I won't be able to watch after they find a replacement," said Stephanie Belmar. Belmar actually met Bob personally as a contestant during her honeymoon trip. She even won the Showcase Showdown. To prove her love she has more than just prizes.
"Our son's name is Price," said Belmar. "I got pregnant on our honeymoon. We joked about naming him Bob. Price is better," said Belmar.
Kathy Sturgess of Sikeston also boasts meeting Bob and winning the Showcase Showdown.
"Bob is an icon in daytime," said Sturgess. "Meeting him was so neat. So many people were jealous. They were like 'You met Bob Barker!'"
