This coming Tuesday will see an extra-special edition of The Price Is Right — for Veterans Day, the entire audience is packed with veterans.
Some arrived in their proper uniforms. But proper for TPIR means attention-grabbing, and this big ol’ Air Force vet with the big ol’ Drew Carey glasses and buzz cut with a T-shirt reading “The Old Drew, here to visit the New Drew” obviously caught everyone’s eye. And wouldn’t you know he even placed a winning bid so he could meet the actual host, comedian Drew Carey? As you can see in this exclusive sneak peek, Carey challenged producers to be hip enough to compare this “Old Drew” with the real thing.
You’ll have to tune in Tuesday to see how he fares during the show’s “Big Money Week.” But for now…roll the clip!
And here’s a reminder of the old old Drew, as in Carey’s U.S. Marine Corps Reserve photo from the early 1980s, before he became a big, big-time stand-up comedian, sitcom star and game show host.
The Price is Right airs weekdays from 11 a.m. to noon ET/PT, 10-11 a.m. Central/Mountain on CBS. The Veterans Day episode airs Nov. 11, 2014.
