$100 and up if you're talking about his tip on a meal at Denny's or Cracker Barrel.
It was recently announced that Drew Carey would take over Bob Barker's role telling people to "come on down" on The Price is Right, a favorite game show of my youth. The New York times article about it wonders:
Was Mr. Carey that desperate for work?Carey won't be giving away his own money on the show, but he says he likes the idea of giving away prizes to people who probably really need them. As far as his own money goes, he likes giving out those big tips. The article didn't say anything about whether or not he donates to charities, but maybe he just enjoys the immediate feel-good aspect of sharing money with individual people like restaurant waitstaff and game show contestants.
"Well, I don't need the money," said Mr. Carey, 49, whose network series "The Drew Carey Show" and "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" live on in lucrative reruns after ending within the last few years. And yet, while he would not disclose his new salary, he acknowledged, "I like the fact that I'm getting paid."
"I just want to share the wealth," he said. "And by doing 'Price is Right,' that's what I'll be doing every day."
