After banging his head in a nasty spill while battling a slew of health issues, former game show host Bob Barker is fading fast, and friends fear he'll be dead in just two months.
"He's been getting more and more frail, and there's a lot of concern that one of these days he'll take a fall that's deadly or suffer a stroke and that will be the end," a Hollywood insider tells RadarOnline.com, worrying Bob could be gone in nine weeks!
"He's on his last legs, I'm afraid, and doesn't have long to live. Everyone is praying he'll make it to 100, but at the rate he's going, it doesn't look likely."
The 93-year-old legend of The Price Is Right, which he hosted for 35 years, fell and hit his head at his Hollywood home in mid-June.
After complaining of "discomfort," he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by his housekeeper, but released several hours later when docs determined he was "doing well," a source says.

The fall was his second in two years. Bob suffered a nasty two-inch gash to his head and a knee laceration in a 2015 fall.
New York internist Dr. Stuart Fischer, who has not treated Bob, believes he could still be in deadly danger.
The truth is that a bad fall can have deadly consequences, including subdural hematoma — or bleeding on the brain — if unnoticed, says the doc. "Subdurals can happen in older people up to six months later," he says.
Bob has also endured two strokes, heart disease, recurring skin cancer and surgery for an enlarged prostate. In 1999, he had an operation to open the carotid artery in his neck to prevent further strokes.
Adds a friend, "We've all been worried about him. At his age, it only takes one incident to trigger a devastating chain of events. We're all praying for him!"
