If you’re like me, seeing Bob Barker trending nationally on Twitter might have been a shock. The legendary game show host, 95, has battled some recent health issues, leaving fans to assume to worst. As it turns out, Barker is alive and well — he’s simply trending for no reason. That’s right, in the same vein as Sean Astin last week, Barker has become the most-talked-about celebrity on Twitter just for existing. That’s not a bad gig, right?
Barker last appeared regularly on television in 2007, retiring after having hosted The Price is Right 35 years. As evidenced by the picture above, the host is also known for his acting chops appearing in hits like Adam Sandler’s Happy Gilmore.
Keep scrolling to see what fans are saying about the scare, Barker as a whole, and more!
There should be a word for whenever you see a random celebrity trending and you automatically think they must’ve died.
