Kyle Aletter (born Kyle Kathleen Aletter on May 31, 1960 in Los Angeles, California, now known as Kyle Aletter-Oldham) is an American model and actress, best known for being the long-term substitute model on The Price is Right
Since being born, Kyle has had acting abilities in her genes. Her father is the late TV and movie actor Frank Aletter, known for shows such as Bringing Up Buddy and It's About Time and her mother is Lee Meriwether, also an actress and a former Miss America. Kyle also has a younger sister named Lesley, who is also an actress.
Kyle's incredible acting resume includes roles on shows such as Barnaby Jones, The Love Boat, The Day After (1983 Nuclear War TV Drama), Finder of Lost Loves, Circus With The Stars, and Adam 12.
Before appearing as a substitute model on The Price is Right, Kyle actually got her start as a contestant as she was one of the first four contestants called to "COME ON DOWN !"
Kyle was the second on-stage contestant and she played the Poker Game and won but was beaten in the Showcase Showdown.
It was shortly after that, when Kyle was approached to see if she would be interested in modeling on The Price is Right. One of the executive assistants had went to school with Kyle's mother, Lee Meriwether, and called up to see if Kyle would be interested in appearing on the show as a Barker's Beauty, Kyle said "Yes, please".
Originally she was going to be to the permanent replacement for Holly Hallstrom, who left in late 1983 to pursue an acting career but return in the spring of 1984, but instead Kyle was signed on to be the substitute model (earliest appearance being early 1984), filling in if one of the regular models (Hallstrom, Janice Pennington, Dian Parkinson) were ill or unavailable. She has subbed for all three of the then-current models but her longest stint was in October 1988 when Janice Pennington was off the show for several weeks after being badly injured from being knocked off stage into the audience by a swinging camera.
In addition to appearing as a substitute model on Price, Kyle also appeared as a substitute model/Card Dealer on Card Sharks (hosted by Bob Eubanks from 1986-1989).
Also in addition to modeling and acting, Kyle has also done work on the stage, she appeared in The Gingerbread Lady with her mother, Lee Meriwether, Last Summer at Bluefish Cove, and The Artful Lodgers.
In 1992, Kyle married her longtime boyfriend Rory Oldham (taking his last name) and in December 1993, she gave birth to her daughter, Ryan Isabelle. Now as a wife and mother, Kyle continued to sub on The Price is Right, she has even appeared during try-out periods (in 1994 and 1996) as a try-out model. In mid-1996, after nearly 12 years as the long-term substitute model on The Price is Right, Kyle decided to end her relationship with the show and her primary focus was now her family.
As of today, Kyle continues to work in a family owned business and is an active volunteer of her church, because she realizes all the gifts and blessings she has in her life would never be possible without the love of the Lord in her life.
