Hey TMZ,

Just wanted to confirm this! I did a stint in Illinois' Cook County jail and Bob Barker is not only on soap! He's on sports bra's, underwear and some other personal hygiene products. Occasionally they would hand the stuff out for free. Although I found rubbing Bob Barker's soap all over my body (which was really cheap and gave me a yeast infection) a bit creepy, I have to say, that is totally genius. There are always going to be people incarcerated and I bet he's making a fortune. *insert lame Price is Right joke here*

Toodles!

Just about all local jails have Bob Barker products. The tooth paste is used for glue and to clean shoes and lots more.

I AM A RETIRED FEDERL JUSTICE JAIL OFFICER. I FIRST LEARNED ABOUT THE HORRORS OF "PRISON SOAP" WHEN THE INMATES FOUND OUT MY FIRST NAME WAS "LISA". BACK IN THE EARLY 80'S THEY USED SOAP NAMED "LISA" AND EVERYDAY AS I PASSED BY THE SHOWER ROOMS THAT'S ALL I HEARD!....LOL...I LEARNED TO GET USE TO IT AND SOON IT STOPPED.

IT IS NOT THE SAME BOB BARKER!!! I can't believe how people will comment about something they know nothing about without a quick check of the internet...It took me 10 seconds to google bob barker jail products; this provided a link to snopes that will tell you the story.
The Bob Barker that makes these items was a politician, who started the company in the 70's
people don't know how to use the internet responsibly
