BIOGRAPHY:




TRIVIA:
  • Father died when Carey was 8, spawning years of depression. Attempted suicide on many occasions.
  • Likes sparring.
  • Was the first ever celebrity to enter WWE's Pay-Per-View Royal Rumble. He eliminated himself when the next participant, the seven footer Kane ('Glenn Jacobs' (qv)), came out. This became one of WWE's greatest moments in sport's entertainment history.
  • (August 2001) Underwent emergency surgery. Surgeons inserted a "stent" to open the blocked arteries to his heart.
  • Considers the writings of self-help guru, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer a major influence in his life.
  • When his _"The Drew Carey Show" (1995)_ (qv) wound up being a major surprise hit on TV, he was given a Porsche by the production company. He purportedly walked out on the stage of the set, asked, "Who here has got the worst car?" When one of the stage hands spoke up and said he didn't have a car, Carey threw him the keys to his old Miata (source: Esquire Magazine Interview).
  • Holds the record for the most money won on the celebrity version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with $532,000 won during two appearances on the show. During his first appearance, he won $500,000, which has only been equalled by two celebrities - Rosie O'Donnell, and Norm MacDonald. During his second appearance, he left with $32,000.
  • In March 2008, Carey became the first US game show host to award a one million dollar cash prize on three separate game shows. The first instance occurred on "Pepsi's Play for a Billion", which aired in September 2003. The second incident happened on the premiere episode of "The Power of 10" in August 2007, while the third was won on a primetime episode of "The Price is Right" (Drew's first nighttime episode, March 2008). In addition, a $1 million prize has been awarded in two subsequent episodes of "Price".
