The Top Ten

1 Bob Barker Bob 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

Bob Barker is a great guy. He always loves and adores pets. - wisconsinboy

2 Alex 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.

He is number 1 this show wouldn't be the same without him

3 Richard 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 was the quintessential game show host- witty and charming with a heart of gold. Family Feud just isn't the same without him.

He made one of the best game shows ever, without him there would be no Steve Harvey.

4 Gene 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.

By far my fave with the warmest, funniest personality of them all. Used to watch these in the 70s as a kid and am surprised at how funny they still are on the old game show channels.

He has a naughty mind. I love him. I was watching Match Game when it was new. lol

Absolutely hilarious. Tons of class.

Number 6? Is that your final answer?

6 Pat Sajak

WHAT?! Pat only at number 46? He's such a funny guy and he's easily the best host ever! - Medmac

he deserves to be in at least top 10....wheel of fortune rocks. - jwileson

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

How is he on the bottom of the list? He should be toward the top.

7 Monty Hall

I want whats behind door #2 - beckihrh

8 Chuck Woolery

THE quintessential game show host.

9 Bill Cullen

The bespectacled Pittsburgh-native hosted more game shows than anyone else, including the original "Price is Right". His wit and warmth are legendary.

Seemed like a genuinely nice guy who treated everyone with respect. Also had a quick wit and sly sense of humor. Adapted easily to every show he hosted.

This gentleman showed respect to the contestants and had a warm spontaneous humor plus intelligence -- compared to none other.

The best of all time. Period

12 Steve Harvey Steve Harvey Broderick Stephen Harvey, known professionally as Steve Harvey, is an American comedian, television host, producer, radio personality, actor, and author.

Although he does say some really stupid and mean stuff about groups of people such as atheists, Steve is really funny and a great show host. Not as good as Bob Barker, though.

Steve Harvey Is The Best Game Show Host, Best Radio Show Host, And Best Talk Show Host Because He's So Funny And Hilarious And Makes Me Laugh Every Day!

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.

He's funny and keeps the game alive. I love him.

14 Bob Eubanks

True man of integrity and old school values - very relaxed and kind but excellent skills of making contestants feel relaxed and free to be themselves.

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

15 Howie Mandel Howie Mandel

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.
