Drew Carey: I Want to Lose More Weight on 'DWTS'


Despite his much-publicized drastic weight loss over the years, The Price Is Right host Drew Carey told ET that he hopes to lose another 10 pounds during his stint on Dancing with the Stars.

"I eat very clean," Carey told ET, when we recently caught up with him at his first dance rehearsal with his partner Cheryl Burke. "I bring a protein bar, my little thing of fruit, I just drink water. I haven't lost a pound though. I need to lose about 10 pounds, honestly, and I thought this would be a great way to lose the 10 pounds, to be on Dancing with the Stars."

Though he admitted that the progress has been slow so far.

"So far, nothing," he said. "Hopefully I'll be in it long enough to lose the 10 pounds!"

Burke also surprisingly revealed that the funnyman definitely already has some musical abilities!

"I have to say, he's pretty musical, so when I turn the music on, there's no need to really teach him how to count music," she said. "He can definitely hear the beat -- it's just now making him look good."
