Wilson begins his weeklong stint alongside the ladies on Oct. 15.

The contest was announced in August. Hundreds of he-man hopefuls showed up at the open call in Los Angeles, where they had a chance to strut their stuff for the show's producers and the female models the show is well-known for.

The show has been on the air since September 1972.

"The Price is Right" is hosted by Drew Carey. It airs at 10 a.m. weekdays.
