Who Did Drew Carey Play On The Bold And The Beautiful?

If you ask a comedy fan to name the most iconic comedians of all time, you will likely hear them mention Drew Carey's name on their list. Carey — who was born in Cleveland, Ohio — found himself enamored by the genre from a young age (via Biography). As the youngest sibling of a widowed mother, watching comedy gave the future star an outlet and a way to numb the pain of the loneliness he felt. Eventually, he developed his own voice and style of humor, which set him on the path to stardom.

The actor and comedian got his first major taste of fame with his sitcom "The Drew Carey Show" then later became host of the improvised comedy series "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" He also landed roles in movies such as "Robots" and "Jack and Jill." Currently, he is the host of the long-running game show "The Price Is Right" (via IMDb). He serves as the replacement to the show's longtime host Bob Barker in the role. 

Did you know that he once appeared in a classic soap opera, too?

Along the way to fame, Drew Carey picked up a few unexpected roles in show business. He also landed some surprising roles once he became a major star. For instance, after taking over as the host of "The Price Is Right," he made an appearance on the hit soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful" In 2009 (via Soap Opera Network). What was his role?

On June 16, 2009, comedian and actor Drew Carey made his debut on the classic soap (via IMDb). He appeared in three episodes, which aired consecutively. He had no trouble with the role at all, as he was playing none other than himself. In the episodes, Carey appeared alongside Rich Fields, the announcer for "The Price Is Right," and several models that regularly work on the show: Lanisha Cole, Amber Lancaster, and Rachel Reynolds. 

The game show cast worked alongside the soap opera actors, delivering a fun performance and getting viewers to wonder if the comedian would pursue more roles in the soap opera world.

The plot that includes Drew Carey on "The Bold and the Beautiful" involves Pam Douglas (Alley Mills) and Donna Logan (Jennifer Garies) making an attempt to offer their dresses as prizes to contestants on "The Price Is Right." The pair flies to Los Angeles in order to meet with the producers of the show to talk plans. In the end, the meeting is missed. Instead, the women are called to "come on down" and compete on an episode of the game show (via Soap Opera Network).

Interestingly, Carey played himself on another popular soap opera a few years later. In 2014, he made a cameo on "The Young and the Restless" in honor of the show's 41st anniversary, according to TV Guide. The small-time soap star has also maintained his role as the host of "The Price Is Right" since 2007. While some fans may still miss Bob Barker as the original host, the new host is loved by many. 

"The Price Is Right," which continues to be a hit, airs on CBS and is available on the Paramount Plus app (via Exstreamist).
