The Top TenXW

1Bob Barker

Bob Barker - Best Price Is Right Host of all time and better than Drew Carey who stinks like a skunk.

Bob was and is an icon. Drew Carey should go back to Cleveland and be replaced as host by MiMi.

Just the best... You think price is right and bob just comes to mind

2Alex 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.

Number 6? Is that your final answer?

7Jeff Probst

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

8Howie 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". - DarkLord


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.

I like Howie with the gloves

9Gene 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

Gene Rayburn should have a giver rating!

10Bill 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.

The best of all time. Period

Nobody made me laugh as hard as Chuck Barris... god I miss that show - buck_1469

14Tom 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. - BKAllmighty

So sad to see him retire, I LOVED HIM! ;c - blst0033

So funny! The best ever! Please vote!
