The game show host told 'TV Insider' that contestants are often high or drunk while competing on the show.

The Price Is Right host Drew Carey gave fans a glimpse of behind-the-scenes details of the iconic gameshow, and it sounds like quite a party.

Carey told TV Insider that when it comes to the show's legendarily upbeat contestants, there's a reason for all that vim and vigor: Booze and weed.


Carey told the publication that it's "not unusual" for contestants to get buzzed before "coming on down."

Carey said:

“That happens here all the time. They’ll have a gummy, or I’ll smell alcohol on their breath. Not unusual."

Carey then shared an anecdote about one particularly vibrant contestant.

"There was a guy here that was tripping on mushrooms. He came with a bunch of friends. He was a sketch [comedy] guy."
"I found out later when I went to UCB [sketch improv theater, Upright Citizens Brigade] to hang out and they were like, ‘Did you see that guy who claimed to be a skateboarding rabbi?’"
"I asked him what he did for a living. And he goes, ‘I’m a skateboarding rabbi.’ He didn’t think he was going to get picked, and he totally tripped.”

On social media, people definitely got a kick out of Carey's story about drunk and high contestants.




As for Carey's future as the host of The Price Is Right, he's not going anywhere any time soon. He told TV Line that now that he's the longest-running game show host currently on television following Pat Sajak's retirement, he's locked in to try to break his record.

"I do have a goal: I want to keep going until I die. This is my 18th season. I’ve got to get the 35 and 41 so I can catch Bob Barker and Pat Sajak."

A worthy goal, indeed.
