TGSI= Toeth's Game Show Insights, CJ= Claudia Jordan
TGSI: Have you done any similar work prior to joining The Price is Right?
CJ: I haven't done any other gamseshows before TPIR. But I have done a lot of
other jobs. Over 200 print bookings, 11 National TV commercials, many music
videos guest starring roles on a couple of TV shows and a couple cameos in
some movies. One with Al Pacino comming out this summer called "Simone". I
was also a finalist in the Miss USA pageant in 1997 (Miss Rhode Island).
TGIS: How did you obtain the job?
CJ: I just went to the big open call they had for the job. There were hundreds of
pretty girls there. I thought it was a long shot. But that's how I do
best, long shots. My entire career has been getting lucky in a series of
TGSI: Were you a regular viewer of The Price is Right before you got the job?
CJ: I really didnt watch the Price is Right much at all. Only a few times. My
mother did though. When she arrived here from Italy years ago she was a
regular viewer. I didnt watch much tv growing up. I was more of an outdoors
type of kid.
TGSI: What was your favorite moment in the shows' history?
CJ: My favorite Price is Right moment??? Well. That's easy! The day they annouced
me as a permanent Barkers Beauty! There are countless days that I laugh and
really enjoy my job cause there are so many funny moments. Especially the
back stage antics with Me & Nikki!
TGSI: How is it being able to work with Bob Barker?
Bob... well..... we don't get to interact much with him. He is a very good
host and is witty every day with the contestants. He has so much experience.
Rod Roddy is a great announcer! I think he is so sweet! A real nice guy, too!
Although it may look simple on TV, did they have any rehearsals to learn how to present the prizes?
CJ: Yes, we rehearse every day for an hour and show everything before we
tape, its more for the camera guys than for us. We pretty much got it down! :)
TGSI: What is your favorite Price is Right game?
My favorite games are Plinko cause you can win cash, and everyone loves it.
And also ITS IN THE BAG, another game that you can win cash in cause I
like how Bob toys with the contestants and leaves them in suspense. Good
TGSI: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
In my spare time I try to go to as many auditions as possible. I am
constantly looking for work. I would like to host my own show one day. I also
run every day and love to shop and cook. I am a pretty good cook. I have
three cats that I take care of (my kids) and they are Nuetered!
Those are all the questions. Thank you for your time! : )
