After shedding 80 pounds back in 2010, Drew Carey is trying for another huge goal – winning the coveted mirror ball trophy on season 18 of Dancing With The Stars.
The comedian revealed his “joy” of being part of this season’s cast in the ABC ballroom dance competition.
His schedule is CRAZY right now as he shared on Live! With Kelly And Michael Friday.
“Monday I did The Price is Right, I did an interview at lunch, TPIR in the afternoon and then I had an hour dinner break and went to dance rehearsals. Then I had a ten hour break and I got to go home and go to sleep then have breakfast and go right to rehearsal again then I went to Price Is Right, then another interview at lunch, TPIR and another rehearsal.” It’s worth noting that Drew took a red-eye to New York from L.A. to appear the show after a long night of dance rehearsals. Man that guy has a work ethic!
When asked why he’d do this to himself he responded “cause I want to win a mirror ball trophy!”
“I watch the show and it looks like so much fun … everybody’s having a good time even though it’s work. I like to do things that are joyous and fun and puts you in a good mood. It’s a challenge. I lost the weight. I want to do things with my body that I couldn’t before.”
Carey is paired with two time champ pro dancer Cheryl Burke.
Good luck Drew!
