With the help of diet, exercise and plenty of bow ties, Drew Carey has
become the spitting image of America's favorite popcorn magnate. The
Price Is Right host recently lost 80 pounds and it (almost) goes without saying:
he looks a lot like the late Orville Redenbacher. The observant folks at
TMZ were early to point out
the similarities and a chorus of bloggers are nodding in agreement
. Carey told People
he shed the pounds by exercising and removing carbohydrates from his
diet. "It sucks being fat, you know," Carey, 52, said. "I was diabetic
with Type-2 diabetes.”
Congratulations, Drew. Your to-do
list is looking a little more surmountable.
