HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Bob Barker says he's feeling fine after passing out last Thursday on a Los Angeles area shooting range.
"My healthy young body has bounced back," the 86-year-old TV legend said Monday during an interview with Access Hollywood Live's Billy Bush and Kit Hoover.
The former Price is Right host was briefly hospitalized after the incident, which he blamed on a combination of factors.
"Not enough water and it was awfully hot and I have a little hypertension," explained Barker. "I take medicine for it and I was possibly taking too much and got my blood pressure too low."
He added, "It's no big deal and I'm in top notch condition again."
