ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Rob Wilson, come on down!

Wilson beat out hundreds of other men to become the first male model on The Price Is Right.

"It's been really exciting," Wilson told PEOPLE on Friday. "I've been getting calls all morning."

The 6'-tall, brown-haired, Boston-area native attended an open call in Los Angeles before being selected in an online reality series.

He will appear on the CBS show starting Oct. 15 for one week.

"As an actor this is just a great opportunity," said Wilson.

Wilson was working in financial sales before landing a small role in Bride Wars.

He moved to L.A. three years ago and has been featured in music videos, print ads and ABC Family's Secret Life of An American Teenager.
