Beginning on June 11, Drew Lachey will take over the reins from Joey Fatone as host for Let’s Make a Deal – Live, and serve the position until the last show on June 22.
“I’m a huge fan of Atlantic City, having enjoyed the area several times,” says Lachey. “Even though I’ll be hosting Let’s Make a Deal – Live, to be here at Bally’s in the summer time is probably going to seem less like actual work and more like a vacation.”
Lachey is best known for his pop group 98 Degrees, which he joined with his brother, Nick, in 1995. After four successful albums, the band decided to take a break. Since then Lachey has appeared on several TV shows, including As the World Turns, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica and also in the musicals Hairspray, Rent, and Monty Python’s Spamalot on Broadway.
Lachey is the 2006 winner of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, beating out 10 other dance couples. He will host America Sings on GMC this summer.
