As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
There is very little information about Rachel’s childhood and her family. It is known that at a young age, she desired to pursue a career in entertainment, wanting to become a star and spend time in the spotlight. During her youth, she was very athletically inclined, but after matriculating from high school, decided to enroll at the Louisiana State University, where she studied public relations, although also competed with the track and field team.
After completing her education, she immediately took steps to help get her into the entertainment industry, and joined a 2002 competition that would determine the new host for the show “Wild On!”, replacing Brooke Burke. The travel show followed the hosts, as they experienced the culture, food, and nightlife of a certain region. She emerged as one of the finalists but was unable to get the part. However, the following year she made her breakthrough, when she became one of Barker’s Beauties in the show “The Price is Right”.
The Price Is Right
“The Price Is Right” is a television game show in which contestants compete to win cash and prizes through guessing the correct price of merchandise. The premise of the show proved highly successful, and since its inception in the 1950s, remains as one of the top television draws even in modern times. The show was noted for breaking the quiz format that was so popularly used in other game shows of the same era; the show was originally hosted by Bob Barker, hence the name Barker’s Beauties as reference to the models who worked on the show. It was later revamped in the 1970s, and in 2007 Drew Carey became the host of the program.
In its current version, “The Price Is Right” has spawned several international formats, with popular versions of the show exist in the UK, Mexico and Australia. It is ranked as one of the greatest game shows of all time, and has launched various merchandise too, including video games, board games, and other printed media, part of the game show’s expanded franchise. There have been more than 40 versions of the show, though only few remain broadcasting today.
Reynolds began appearing in “The Price is Right” during its 31st season, as one of the rotating beauties, appearing in a total of nine episodes; she then made more frequent appearances during the 32nd season of the show. Her appearance led her to other opportunities, including in “Lucky Seven” in which she was noted for smashing the bumper of a brand new car into one of the studio doors. She also briefly took the position of Tiffany Coyne in “Let’s Make a Deal”, before gaining small or guest roles in various other popular shows.
Some of the shows she’s worked in include the soap opera “The Bold and the Beautiful”, a guest role in “How I Met Your Mother”, and as a guest in “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”. Reynolds also worked on several Emmy Award broadcasts. Aside from her acting, she consistently did modelling work and was a fitness model for the magazine “RX”. She also posed for Venus Swimwear numerous times.
Despite many other popular Reynolds in the industry, she bears no relation to any of them. During the peak of her popularity she was often referred to as related to Burt Reynolds, but according to her, this was just a popular misconception. Neither is she related to actor Ryan Reynolds.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, Rachel was married to retired professional American Football quarterback Josh Booty, who is known for playing with the National Football League (NFL) team the Cleveland Browns. They married in 2003, but it was a short lived union, as she announced that she was getting divorced later in the year.
For the next few years, she kept her relationships out of the media spotlight, but later announced that she became engaged to former professional baseball player David Dellucci, best known for playing in Major League Baseball (MLB) as an outfielder, and winning the 2001 World Series with the Arizona Diamondbacks. They married in 2010 and during this time, she even modelled to promote formal wear during the same year. They welcomed a daughter three years after their marriage.
Similar to numerous television personalities, she is highly active online through accounts on social media. She has accounts on Twitter and Instagram, posting a lot on her daily endeavors, including a lot of pictures of her family and her work with “The Price is Right”. She remains with the popular game show franchise, and has even included her daughter in tapings.
