Drew Carey's April Fool's Sweepstakes - On April Fool's Day 1998, THE DREW CAREY SHOW/ABC/1995-2004 presented a strange half-hour program that challenged the viewers to find all of the mistakes on the program (for example, a person called an incorrect name, a change to a regular prop, etc.).

The person finding the most goofs, falsehoods or outright lies (there were more than 50 things wrong with the show) were in the running for $25,000 prize, VIP trip for two (2) to Los Angeles, California, lunch with Drew Carey, and a walk-on role in the show.


Mailed entries were sent in an envelope to Drew Carey, P.O. Box 94623, Cleveland, Ohio 44101. Electronic entries were sent via

According to Cleveland's The Plaindealer newspaper, so many viewers tried to enter the contest over the Internet that the ABC network's Web site crashed. Later in 1998, a false rumor arose that Drew Carey was conducting a contest to find himself a wife.

TRIVIA NOTE: On the 2/18/98 episode "The Batmobile" on the ABC sitcom THE DREW CAREY SHOW, Drew Carey wins a contest and is awarded a full-sized, working replica of the Batmobile, the huge, flashy car used in the "Batman" television series and movies. Later, when Drew drives his girlfriend, Nicki in the Batmobile to a secluded forest, she gets sexually aroused, and she and Drew make love for the first time. Unfortunately, the police arrest them for public lewdness, and the contest organizers take the Batmobile back because Drew defiled the Batmobile's reputation.
