In August 2012, The Price Is Right began a search for their first permanent male model,[8] and held an open call for auditions.

In 2013, Wilson joined the cast of All My Children for The OnLine Network. His character, Pete Cortlandt, is the youngest son of Opal and Palmer Cortlandt and a 22-year-old Silicon Valley tech wiz.[13][14]

In April 2014, Days of Our Lives announced that Wilson had been hired as a recast for the role of Ben, previously portrayed by Justin Gaston.[17] Wilson vacated the role in December 2015.[18] In January 2016, it was announced that Wilson would reprise his role as Ben in March to facilitate the exit of his former co-star Kate Mansi who played Abigail Deveraux.[19][20] Wilson concluded his run with the series on June 24, 2016.[21] In July 2017, Wilson was cast in the Rob Malenfant directed thriller, The Girl Who Cried Wolf.[22] Wilson once again returned to Days of Our Lives in September 2017 to help facilitate the return of Chandler Massey's Will Horton.[23][24] In November 2017, Wilson was cast in the Jared Cohn directed independent film Relic opposite William Shatner.[25] In late 2017, it was announced that he was cast as a regular on Amazon's show Ladies of the Lake season 2 as Ethan Wyatt.[26]
