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.
