When you're so used to seeing a TV show host week in, week out, it provides a certain amount of comfort. Life is usually super hectic, and there's a kind of relaxation one can appreciate in seeing a familiar face luxuriate themselves in a familiar premise so you can help take your mind off things. Which is probably why people are always so concerned whenever a celebrity face undergoes a drastic change, like what happened with Drew Carey's hair.
What happened with Drew Carey's hair?
The comedian isn't really all that active on Instagram, only sporadically posting here and there on the platform. However, he got a lot of fans talking in August of 2020 when he debuted his quarantine look: grey hair and a beard. He uploaded the photo with a simple caption: "My new look!"
While people were shocked at his new follicle arrangement, they were generally digging the 'do and hoped they he would bring it back for The Price is Right.
The show had to suspend filming due to COVID-19, and many folks are thinking that Drew sending out that picture is sending a pretty sly sign that they should get ready for his new look when he's back on air.
For those who are surprised by Drew's new look, you may not realize that the man is 62 years old. We know, he looks awesome, but he was likely dyeing his hair prior to deciding to go natural now.
Drew has been in the public eye for quite some time, but he actually didn't start his adult life as an actor or comedian. He was initially a Marine. The famous vet was in the Marine Corps Reserves from 1980 to 1986. In fact, that image of Drew you're so used to? According to him, he adopted that style — crew cut hair and horn-rimmed glasses — while he was in the service. He started doing stand-up as a way to make more money while he was a Marine.
He didn't have his first acting gig until he was in his thirties. Perhaps that's also why it's so surprising to see Drew looking his age: We forget that, just because his career started in the 1990s, it doesn't mean he was a kid in the 1990s. He had a whole other career before we started seeing him on our TV screens.
However, Drew isn't grey in 'The Price Is Right.'
While a lot of people were digging the grey, Drew debuted a very different look on The Price Is Right. Donning a rather strange, dark brown hair color, fans were a bit confused with the new style.
But if you're not a fan of the new style, not to worry! The Price Is Right is not currently airing new episodes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Price Is Right has not been filming. It appears that the episodes currently airing actually were filmed all the way back in 2015 and he was only wearing a costume at the time. So, not to worry, the black hair is not here to stay. But here's hoping the grey hair does!
