Groups of aspiring models lined up for the open casting call in Los Angeles on Aug. 30, before the field was narrowed down to 26, who then competed in challenges. Tasks included writing and singing original lyrics to The Price Is Right's theme music and a costume change. Wilson, Clint Brink and Nick Denbeigh were named as the finalists and fans voted from Sept. 28-Oct. 4 for their choice.

Hosted by Drew Carey, The Price Is Right is produced by FremantleMedia North America and airs 10 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET daily on CBS.
