The Top Ten

Bob Barker
Bob Barker - Best Price Is Right Host of all time and better than Drew Carey who stinks like a skunk.
Just the best... You think price is right and bob just comes to mind

2Richard Dawson
Best Game Show Panelist and Host ever! Always loved his witty attitude and tendency to make everyone feel calm on the camera! Richard is absolutely the best! Family Feud forever!
Richard is the sexiest game show host of all time.I wanted to be on family feud and match game just so i could get kissed by him .


Richard is the greatest game show host ever! So handsome, witty, hilarious and warmhearted. ThereĀ“s no one like him and never will be!
[Newest]He was a good host. Seemed he made everyone feel comfortable.

3Alex Trebek
Longtime host of "Jeopardy!" has matured like a fine wine through the years, but this Canadian native can still be just as irreverent when he first started.
Intelligence is always sexy. And he's probably the only one who can get away with asking questions instead of giving answers.
Very smart, and intelligent.

4Gene Rayburn
Favorite game show ever! Gene was the leader of that always great, star studded panel. His energy was infectious and you always felt better after watching the show than you did before it started.
He showed so little respect to the contestants who according to him gave the wrong answers. He appeared to be a slob.
He has a naughty mind. I love him. I was watching Match Game when it was new. lol

5Bengt Magnusson

6Steve Harvey
They should have put him hosting Price is right over Carey. He would sure bring the ratings back. He's funny, witty, good with contestants.
Steve Harvey is funny


He should be in the top 5 for sure

7Regis Philbin
Number 6? Is that your final answer?

8Bill Cullen
The bespectacled Pittsburgh-native hosted more game shows than anyone else, including the original "Price is Right". His wit and warmth are legendary.
This gentleman showed respect to the contestants and had a warm spontaneous humor plus intelligence -- compared to none other.
Should have been named # ONE.

9Jeff Probst
A really, really sharp guy, he made this the with his sharpness the best modern game show hands down, and continues to

10Monty Hall
I want whats behind door #2


The Contenders

11Pat Sajak
he deserves to be in at least top 10....wheel of fortune rocks.


42! Are you kidding me? He's so great with the contestants, and funny!

12Drew Carey

13Chuck Barris
Nobody made me laugh as hard as Chuck Barris... god I miss that show


14Wink Martindale

15Kris Aquino

16Bob Eubanks
Bob Eubanks was great. He was funny, got along great with the contestants, smart, an handsome.

17Ben Stein

18Howie Mandel
Howie is hilarious. He is capable of making you laugh just through his actions. I thought Howie would be in the top 10 so I am surprised at his position on this list. I suggest watching his show "Howie do it".


He made Deal or no Deal suspenseful and fun. He was hilarious but added enough tension to the show to make it compelling T.V.

19Tom Bergeron
The only one who can ever host America's Funniest Videos is this man. No doubt about it.
Host of Hollywood Squares, fill-in host of Millionare, and of course, the king of AFV.


So funny! The best ever! Please vote!
