LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Bob Barker is on the mend following his fainting scare last week at a Los Angeles area shooting range.
“My healthy young body has bounced back,” the 86-year-old TV legend told Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday.
The game show legend and animal rights advocate said his health scare was due to a combination of factors.
“Not enough water and it was awfully hot and I have a little hypertension.” Bob explained. “I take medicine for it and I was possibly taking too much and got my blood pressure too low.”
Adding, “It’s no big deal and I’m in top notch condition again.”
Bob even joked that he’s ready to hit town for a night of dancing and tequila sipping with Billy, joking that, in fact, he’s ready to celebrate “almost any night!”
