Ryan Seacrest’s work on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” is going well for both Ryan Seacreast and Kelly Ripa. After the summer break, both hosts returned seeming eager to be back. There was plenty of excitement about plans for the upcoming season including guests, celebrities, musicians and fun segments for the hosts.
Over the summer break, Ryan Seacrest admitted to taking more days off than he ever has before. Considering his on-going projects, this is particularly striking. While Ryan Seacrest is probably most well known as the host of the mega-hit show “American Idol”, he also has hosted his popular radio show “On Air with Ryan” since 2008. In 2010 he established the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, which currently has a presence at nine different children’s hospitals around the country. He started his own fashion line of men’s suits and dress wear in 2014, called Ryan Seacrest Distinction. In 2017, he cofounded Polished, a skin care line for men.
Much of the excitement this week was due to Record Breaker Week, where the show teams up with Guinness World Records and attempts to film real-time records being broken. The first attempt was “Most People Doing the ‘Floss’ Dance Move Simulation”. The record was successfully broken with 349 people dancing for a full minute. “Most Basketball Under-the-Leg Slam Dunks by a Team Using a Trampoline in One Minute” was broken with a total of 27. This was followed by “Tallest House of Cards in One Hour” with 26 stories built that could stand for 10 seconds.
One of the particularly entertaining attempts was “Fastest Time to Wrap a Person with Wrapping Paper” where Kelly Ripa was wrapping Ryan Seacrest. While not successful, it was quite amusing.
The show then hosted its own producer, Michael Gelman, who was honored with the record for “Most Morning Show Episodes Produced by an Individual” at 7,534 episodes.
Finally, Ripa and Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) are now scheduled to take on the current record holders for “Most Juice Extracted from Grapes by Treading in One Minute by a Team of Two” in a grape stomping contest.
