Drew and Cheryl Burke on Dancing with the Stars

Lachey was a celebrity dancer on the second season of Dancing with the Stars with professional dance partner Cheryl Burke. At the beginning of the sixth week of competition (aired in February 2006), Lachey and Burke earned a perfect score of 30 with their tango. In the eighth and final week, they earned a score of 30 on each of their two dances, the Paso Doble and freestyle, giving them the highest score for the week. On February 26, 2006, they were crowned the champions of Dancing with the Stars.

Lachey co-hosted the 2006 Miss USA pageant with Access Hollywood star Nancy O'Dell. The pageant aired live on NBC from Baltimore, Maryland on April 21, 2006.

From December 2006 to February 2007, Drew toured both Canada and the United States for the Dancing with the Stars Tour. On the April 17, 2007 results show, Lachey made a surprise appearance to reprise his "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)" freestyle dance with Cheryl Burke. He co-hosted the first 3 weeks of the fifth season of Dancing with the Stars, temporarily replacing Samantha Harris during her maternity leave. He also stepped in for Tom for one episode.When Gloria Estefan had to pull out of the October 16, 2007 results show for personal reasons, Lachey returned to dance a foxtrot with Cheryl. After the show, Drew and Cheryl were rumored to have been having an affair. Both denied this story.

Drew was featured on the show Overhaulin' when brother Nick Lachey worked with Chip Foose to steal and customize Drew's 1967 Ford truck.

Lachey was also presenter of HGTV's spring 2009 series the reality show where five neighboring families competed for the chance to win $250,000 to pay off their mortgage by competing in home-improvement challenges.

Lachey served as guest host for The Price Is Right Live! in Las Vegas in August 2010.
