Who is Mama Mai?
Mama Mai is announcer George Gray’s mom.
When introduced by The Price is Right host Drew, cameras usually swing round to George, who tends to say: “Hi Mama Mai!”.
He has spoken those words to introduce the show since the start of 2014.
Her real name is Mai Gray, and is known for her role as an actress in films like Stargate (1994), Universal Soldier (1992) and In the Army Now (1994).
She has also appeared as an extra in several films, and even helped out in the costume department for Scissors (1991).
How old is George Gray’s mom?
Mama Mai is thought to be in her eighties, but this is unconfirmed.
As her son George is now 54 years old, having been born on March 11, 1967, she is likely to be at least 20 years older than him.
George and his mom celebrated her birthday on February 27, 2020, when he posted an Instagram of them enjoying a meal out together.
He wrote: “Today is my dear, sweet Mama Mai’s birthday!
“Haaaaappy Birthday! Thanks @therealpriceisright for letting me say hi to her every morning :)”.
Mai Gray never misses an episode of The Price is Right!
