  • A good guy who fought back from depression and diabetes to shed them both.


    Drew Carey is a great guy, whose funny, who was undeservedly looked down upon when he replaced the legendary Bob Barker on The Price Is Right. Barker was old, it was going to happen eventually. Carey has made a solid replacement so far, but of course he won't serve the same place in our hearts and in show history. I understand that. And Drew does too. But back to Carey himself. He's a fighter, after he had a tough childhood. His father died when he was young, and he was left isolated from his two older brothers who were exceptionally older than him. He attempted suicide and dropped out of college but restructured himself after serving in the Marine Corps Reserves for six years. Writing comedy bits for childhood friend and DJ David Lawrence, and that restored his confidence in himself. Then he made himself to some very successful and enjoyable shows, in The Drew Carey Show and then Whose Line Is It Anyway? in 2001. He did great, and after his weight was poked fun of on his shows and in real life, he decided to shed the weight. Not only did he lose over 80 pounds, he lost his type-2 diabetes, which was great for him. He's a great man, works for a great cause, and when the current 53-year-old man decides to retire, it will definitely be a sad day in showbiz history.
