Guess who’s dusting off his sparkly suits for the 19th time to ring in the New Year? That’s right, none other than the perpetual host-with-the-most, Ryan Seacrest! But hold on to your party hats, because this year he’s not flying solo. Brace yourselves for a comedic whirlwind because joining him on the hosting rollercoaster is the one and only Rita Ora!
The dynamic duo made a grand entrance at a press event that probably had more glitter than a unicorn sneezing in a disco ball factory. Picture it: Ryan Seacrest and Rita Ora, the dream team, strutting into the Edition Times Square hotel like they own the place. Well, for the night at least.
In a riveting interview on Good Morning America, where serious questions are banned, Ryan was asked if he had any pearls of wisdom to share with Rita. Cue the suspenseful music as Ryan contemplates the meaning of life, or at least the meaning of hosting New Year’s Eve specials.
“How would I ever give advice? What advice would you give?” Ryan responded, as if he were pondering the secrets of the universe. He then continued, “She is to me, she’s a legend. I’ve known her for a long time. She’s an artist, and she does live television as well. She’s a great presenter, and she’s got a great sense of humor. She’s going to bring energy and fun. I know she’s excited about it and looking forward to it, so thank you, Rita, for being a part of this program this year.”
Translation: Ryan’s basically saying, “Rita, my friend, you’re about to enter the wild and wonderful world of hosting with yours truly. Buckle up, buttercup, because it’s going to be a ride crazier than a kangaroo on a trampoline!”
So, get ready for a New Year’s Eve extravaganza filled with sequins, sass, and probably a few dad jokes from Ryan. Rita, our new co-host, we hope you’ve got your funny bone polished and your party shoes ready because this duo is set to make Times Square the funniest place on Earth this New Year’s Eve!
