Title: Rich Fields Coming Back?
Post by: kslingo on May 11, 2020, 10:40:17 PM
Rich has recently been posting that he has a HUGE announcement that he is making June 1....

Could he be returning to Price is Right at least while George is out on recovery???

His podcast is mysteriously deleted, like he had to sign a NDA to delete them or something..... Hmmmmmmm...

All the comments on his page are related to him "coming back" to TPIR... What are your thoughts???

Might I also add that he has liked or hearted all comments related to TPIR could be another clue....

Production of TPiR is still suspended due to coronavirus, and Rich apparently did not leave the show on the best of terms, to say the least.

So I'd say it's pretty unlikely.

Yeah, if production wasn't currently shut down, I'd entertain the idea of him replacing George while he recovers, but seeing as that isn't the case...

Yeah, I find it insanely likely as a $4 billion wad of money come crashing on my head.

That was quite some years ago now though too with regards to the latter point, not to mention a whole executive producer ago, since Mike Richards has left the show in the interim time. So if time heals all wounds.....whose to say he couldn't be whenever the show returned to production?

It would be awesome to hear his great voice durimg contestant calldowns... But after our current situation (when the productions resume), it's really not clear if the staff would go with Rich retaking the announcer podium after 10 years, while George is recovering.

I have a feeling that his "big announcement" is that he's moved to another radio station. He made an announcement that he got let go from Q105 not that long ago, so it would make a heck of a lot more sense than him coming back to TPiR. The reason he probably got rid of the podcast is because it was with one of the other DJs at his old station.

The latter might help you believe Rich is coming back, though.

I won't be surprised if Rich returns on tv doing the weather.

The Price is Right probably could snag Jonathan from LMAD or use one of the guys who audition for the show.

Why anyone would even want Rich back as announcer is beyond me. Seriously, aside from about two or so years during the middle of his run, he wasn't good. He's not coming back. That, and production remains suspended due to COVID-19, and at this point it could be months before production even picks up again, meaning that by the time that happens, George should be good to go.

It's likely he's got another radio gig, or got another TV weatherman gig.

If current trends are holding for L.A, it’s definitely more than “could be”.  Los Angeles County just announced stay-at-home orders will “with all certainty” be extended for another three months. (https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-05-12/coronavirus-beaches-reopen-los-angeles-county-move-toward-new-normal)

Absolutely not anything related to production that can be ready to announce by June 1, at the very least.

I’m no doctor, and this should absolutely not be taken as medical advice, but a quick google for “heart surgery recovery time” suggests most patients can get back to everyday activities after 8-10 weeks. There is no way the show can resume production that quickly. George will be fine by the time the show needs him again, knock on wood.

99% odds whatever Rich is hyping isn’t Price-related. The other 1% is some unofficial project like the Perfect Bid documentary.

Anyone think maybe he's been tapped to host or announce a couple TPiR Live shows when they return to doing their thing?

He's gone on record saying he doesn't want to be involved with TPiR Live because he wants people to remember him from the real deal.

Was it ever revealed why Rich got fired by Mike Richards?
Title: Re: Rich Fields Coming Back?
Post by: JhayPrice on May 14, 2020, 08:35:37 AM
Rich just said on his statement before that Mike said that he's going in a new direction for the show, and wanted to make the show "a variety show within a game show."

Well I would tell you to go listen to the podcast, but they are all gone :(

Nope.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  Rich was fired because he's an idiot.  There's honestly not any great secret that I'm hiding here -- just a couple of stories that I don't feel it's my place to make public because they make Rich sound really stupid.

To be fair, he liked my post, and all I said was "Ooooo I'm excited!"

Odds are he probably got a new DJ or weatherman gig. It is also possible that he may bring his podcast back, as the June 1st announcement is on that page as well.

I have a feeling this big announcement from Rich  will be a big nothing burger.

a big nothing burger.

Are big nothing burgers meatless?  Because then it's okay to discuss here.  Because of Bob Barker being into animal rights...   xlx xlx xlx

sorry... i'll show myself out...  :cry:

Rich's announcement has been postponed, but he mentions he'll be back in front of an national audience.

I liked Rich enough as announcer until he started sounding obnoxious when reading copy for the cars offered during the show. It began to sound like he was trying to imitate Frank Caliendo imitating Rod Roddy on MAD TV. "It's a new CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!" It was embarrassing. I remember that when he first started with the show in April 2004, his delivery was more like Johnny Olson and Rod used to do. "It's a new car!" Precise, exciting, and never obnoxious. I'm not sure when he started that crap, but it was when Bob was still the host. I'm surprised Barker tolerated it.

Posts that throughout the years have implied he works for the show or has inside knowledge. I'd take his word over a lot of others on here

Though given how frequently they involve Rich in some way, I'd assume either it's Rich himself, or a friend posting on his behalf.
Title: Re: Rich Fields Coming Back?
Post by: bigblue999 on July 07, 2020, 09:28:01 PM
Or that Rich simply posted it on his FB page and the user did not link it.

I think The Weakest Link is through BBC Worldwide EvilChameleon. And it's going to be interesting to see what Rich will be doing for Fremantle and if it's related to the ABC revival of Supermarket Sweep or some other project they have planned.

The important thing is... how many of his posts have been accurate?
