Frank Edoho will be returning to the screens as the host of a new TV game show, The Price is right, after the end of his deal with Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
The TV personality has been announced as the host of the internationally acclaimed game show, which is produced by Genesis Studios and bankrolled by Spar.
Speaking with Pulse on the new role, Frank said “As you know, I have been out of job for a while now and landing this role gives me another opportunity to do what I know best. Interestingly, I have always followed the show on internet and watched several episodes, so much that I prayed it comes to Nigeria.
“I’m glad that I got the role to be the host and I’m grateful to Genesis Studios as well as Spar for deeming it fit to shoot the TV game show with me. I mean, the producers could as well find a new face but they believe in my abilities and after test run, they were fine with the result and I can tell you TV game show is about to change to a whole new level.“
When queried on the tempting fee he must have charged owing to his fame and record with the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Frank simply dropped, “All I can tell you is the price is actually right!”
