Drew Carey Wins The PRICE IS RIGHT Jackpot!
Former U.S. Marine and crew cut haired comic, Drew Carey has won the coveted spot to replace Bob Barker as the host of the PRICE IS RIGHT. This has to be the greatest gig ever for this great comic, who is something of a relative rarity in Hollywood, conservative leaning politically.
But Drew Carey is not all that very public about his political opinions, which he seems to more closely hold to himself. For being a former Marine, Carey is exceptionally loose and very easy to get along with. Producers of TV shows love just type of personality where some others who are difficult or prone to abuse of some substance are the worst types by comparison. And Carey seems free of any shortcomings and at ease as host who really enjoys any job that he does. Part of the fun of watching Drew Carey is watching him have fun working such as on WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?
Carey is an excellent choice to host the PRICE IS RIGHT. He has one of the nicest personalities and is one of the funniest actors in Hollywood. He is certainly worth watching as host, and should be able to carry on the strong ratings of the PRICE IS RIGHT. CBS did good! The best of luck to Drew Carey.
