Emdur s family ties
Emdur's family ties

The Morning Show host Larry Emdur will be joined by his 18-year-old son Jye on The Price is Right this week.

Jye will step in as the game show's model on Thursday and Emdur seemed more than happy to be introducing his son to the crowd.

"I can't wait for the doors to roll back and I can introduce my boy," he said. "He knows what to do. I've been teaching him the old Emdur smile since the day he was born. He'll be a natural out there."

While Jye last featured on the show back in 2005 at the age of 13, he made his very first on-stage appearance with Emdur at three months old.

"I brought him on set when he was just three-months old," Emdur recalled. "He was all bundled up and I was telling the audience 'shhh' because he was asleep."

After his appearance on the game show, Jye will head overseas to embark on a gap year trip before he begins his university studies.

But he also joked: "Or maybe I'll turf dad out of a job. I'm definitely interested in a TV career."

The Price is Right airs weekdays at 5pm on Seven.
