A muggy climate was not going to stop Ryan Seacrest from delivering a stellar performance during the New Years celebration.
“I prefer the rain versus last year’s cold,” he said, in a NY Times interview, referring to the 9-degree weather he had to experience the previous year.
Seacrest can be found just about anywhere you look. The busy man wakes you up in the morning with Kelly and Ryan (Replacing previous hosts Regis Philbin and Micheal Strahan). As well as on your ride to work, when you turn on the radio and tune into On Air Ryan Seacrest, founded all the way back in 2004. Three short years after his American Idol debut, where America fell in love with his debonair smile and undeniable charm.
This New Years he even sported a white t-shirt from his own fashion line called Distinction. A line founded in 2014, that sets an example of how every man should dress on a first date. Despite being dressed to the nine Seacrest did have a bit of a malfunction this New Years. When just three hours before the ball dropped, he backed up into a heater and his puffer jacket began to smoke. He was alright, thanks to a helpful samaritan who shouted what was happening to help him realize.
This year, the talented host was accompanied by many other beloved hosts such as Andy Cohen, Anderson Cooper, and Jenny McCarthy. Cooper and Cohen exchanged playful banter about Cohen’s resolution to spend less time on the dating app for gay men called Grindr. While McCarthy puffed a smoke as hubby Donnie Wahlberg, from New Kids On The Block, worked around her.
Each talented host had their stand out moment but as always, Seacrest was the stand out of the night. The founder of the non-profit Ryan Seacrest Foundation has become a staple of the New Years celebration and, hopefully, will continue to be for many years to come.
