CBS to rerun Bob Barker's homage to Happy Gilmore on The Bold and the Beautiful
One can never get enough of Bob Barker smacking a wise guy.
In Friday's special encore episode of The Bold and the Beautiful on CBS, Barker plays himself in an homage to his cameo from the 1996 movie Happy Gilmore. Barker throws several punches (with sound effects!) after an argument with actor Darin Brooks (Wyatt Spencer).
"I thought it was a wonderful idea because Happy Gilmore is still playing on television frequently and everybody loved that fight scene," Barker told PEOPLE in 2014 when the episode first aired. "For Bold and Beautiful to be so bold as to copy, more or less, is wonderful!"
Barker said his cameo didn't require much training. "I'm a natural fighter," he told PEOPLE at the time. "I work out regularly. I think that the two most important things to be healthy are nutrition and exercise. My diet is good and I work out every day."
He also added how fans — young men in particular — always want to chat with him about his memorable moment opposite Adam Sandler. "I never taped a Price Is Right after the movie release that the audience didn't want to, during commercials, talk about Happy Gilmore. They loved it. They asked me all sorts of things. The young men would ask me, 'In real life, could you really whip Adam Sandler?' I would tell them, 'Are you kidding? Adam Sandler couldn't whip Regis Philbin.' I'm in fighting frame, fit to fight. Adam has been abusing his body."
Barker, now 96, stepped down from The Price is Right in 2007.
The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS.
