The 62-year-old spent his early years in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. He graduated from the James Ford Rhodes High School in 1975 and was enrolled at Kent State University but got expelled twice for poor academic performance.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Carey's net worth is estimated at $165 million as of 2021. He gained popularity for his role in the ABC sitcom, The Drew Carey Show. The 62-year-old played the titular role from 1995 to 2004 and served as co-creator as well as executive producer of the show.
Carey earned $750,000 ( around $1 million today) per episode from The Drew Carey Show between 2001 and 2004. Totaling the episodes he filmed at the time, the 62-year-old made a whopping $59,250,000 (before inflation) from the last three seasons alone.
Since 2017, Drew has been the host of the game show, The Price Is Right, for which he earns a salary of $12.5 million per year, becoming one of 20 highest-paid TV hosts in the world. He was also one of the highest-paid entertainers during the peak of his career.
The 62-year-old accumulated $45 million from various endeavors in 1998. That would be around $70 million today. His other notable credits include American Housewife, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, Drew Carey's Green Screen Show, The Late Late Show, Home Improvement, and The Larry Sanders Show.
Carey has never married but has been engaged twice. He proposed to his then-girlfriend, Nicole Jaracz, in 2007. At the time, Jaracz had just graduated from a culinary school and had a son, Connar, from her previous relationship.
In 2010, the 62-year-old lost 80 lbs and credited his then-fiancée and her son, who was 4 years old at the time, as the inspiration for his significant weight loss.
"I like being skinny. I was sick of being fat on the camera.. I started losing weight, again, like once I started dropping a couple pant sizes, then it was easy ’cause once you see the results, then you don’t wanna stop," he told People.
Carey and Jaracz called off their engagement in 2012 after remaining together for nearly five years. He was engaged for the second time to Amie Harwick, a marriage and family therapist.
Harwick and Carey met at a party in the summer of 2017 and he proposed to her in January 2018. The two, however, ended their engagement in November of that same year. Harwick was found dead in February 2020. Her ex-boyfriend, Gareth Pursehouse, was arrested for suspected murder.
