Drew Carey on Tuesday got engaged to culinary-school grad Nicole Jaracz, confirms his rep. While a timetable hasn't been set for the wedding, Carey does have a date for his latest TV gig: On Oct. 15 he begins hosting The Price Is Right, now entering its 36th season. Carey, who succeeds retired Bob Barker, hosted CBS's Power of 10 and created and starred on ABC's The Drew Carey Show.

Returning to the topic of wedding bells, "It will be the first marriage for both," says Carey's publicist, Christina Papadopoulos. "They are both very happy and excited about their future together."
