The 39th season (yes, you read that right!) of L.A. tourist destination/favorite of sick-day kids the nation over, "The Price Is Right," premiered Monday. But more interesting than the show's new game, Pay the Rent, is probably the videographic proof of what we all got excited about over the summer: host Drew Carey's new svelte self.

Drew1 The comic, known as much as for his love of Bob's Big Boy as his size, dropped 80 pounds by cutting out the carbs and a lot of exercise.

But, of course, Carey is not alone. Here's a gallery of other celebrities' weight-loss pictures.

What do you think of his willpower? Have you ever tried -- and maybe even succeeded -- at dropping this much weight? Share in the comments.
