^ There is a big difference between male Price is Right models and Vanna's duties on Wheel, and in no way do they have anything to do with each other.
Vanna models prizes and reveals answers. Daniel models prizes and reveals answers. Real big.

Not to mention it seems like another reason to break 30+ year tradition because they can. Not to mention Drew feels the need to plug him 43257836 times every time he's on the show.
Some traditions deserve to be broken, not to mention that it is the most frivolous tradition. It worked for 39 years, but that doesn't mean it was some stigma that Roger and Bob specifically set in place.

It comes off as desperate for ratings and out of place.
Yes, because being #1 in viewers is real desperate.

And as for out of place. I just don't see it. When I first saw Daniel, I was afraid he was going to be an annoying guest who talked every chance he got and appeared on a regular basis. Instead he stands there, models, and doesn't say anything. Real out of place.

The Daniel Goddard card is actually one that Richards & Co. have played right during their tenure as producers. His role is minimal: he appears maybe 4 or 5 times per show--usually modeling prizes that are genuinely more "masculine" (power tools, motorcycles, etc.); doesn't speak unless he's spoken to and, perhaps most importantly, he keeps his shirt on.
Check his IMDB, this guy played "The BeastMaster" in the syndicated show of the same name about ten years back. How easy it would be for the producers to take advantage of that at every kayak or home gym up-for-bids and reduce the mostly female studio audience to a shrieking horde not seen or heard since the glory days of "The Ricki Lake Show."

Here's a pic, just in case you were wondering:

So yeah, real big.

Some traditions deserve to be broken, not to mention that it is the most frivolous tradition. It worked for 39 years, but that doesn't mean it was some stigma that Roger and Bob specifically set in place.

The really sucky attempt at male modeling in Season 39 also left a bad taste in my mouth, and set in my mind that I never again wanted to see a male model.

So, guilt by association? Maybe. Do I care? No.

Yes, because being #1 in viewers is real desperate.

Remember who thought this was a good idea.
Certainly more competent in running a game than Roger Goddell.

We're comparing, here, at least, whether a show should have male models to a whether a show should even have a model.

The puzzle board can be remotely operated, but if Vanna weren't there, who would do the commercial lead-ins and other things she does, Pat or Jim? Having three different voices on the show and the on-site appearances that Vanna makes give some variety even if the original "letter-turner" role is superfluous.

The really sucky attempt at male modeling in Season 39 also left a bad taste in my mouth, and set in my mind that I never again wanted to see a male model.

So, guilt by association? Maybe. Do I care? No.

I don't remember who you're referring to, but you're judging an entire gender's ability to model by the fact that you didn't like one guy or a few guys who did it? That's like saying you didn't like Holly Hallstrom, so the show should never have redheaded models.

Remember who thought this was a good idea.

As much as I dislike some of the unnecessary and silly changes on the show in the last few years, I don't agree with the argument that "this was Mike's idea, therefore it sucks by definition."

I totally agree.  This is one of the few things Mike & Co. have managed to get right.

Well, in some way, that is true. Sometimes Goddard is actually O.K.......In small doses, anyway.

I've gotten used to seeing Daniel on the show.  I've felt for quite some time that the show needed a male model not only so the ladies have something to look at but me as well.  My only minor nitpick is they should teach him how to model better rather than just stand there and clap like Vanna White.  Other than that, I think he's a nice little addition to the Price is Right family.

Speaking of family, I find Connor adorable though I do agree that he's a bit of a distraction.  I admire Drew and company for having him on the show, but I don't think he needs to be on the stage unless they want to feature him showing off a prize that's geared towards children.  Maybe when he gets a little older he'll be able to do things that are less distracting and more useful.
