Ryan Seacrest fans are raving over his chemistry with morning show guest co-host Ali Wentworth. Ryan was joined by actor and comedian Ali Wentworth on the Wednesday, August 3 broadcast of the talk show.
Kelly Ripa, who usually co-hosts ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’, is on vacation and has been replaced by various hosts during her absence. Ryan Seacrest and Ali Wentworth received a warm welcome from the studio audience as the duo took their positions at the host desk.

During the episode, the On Air host showed off his short “schoolboy shorts” associated with a shirt and suit jacket. The audience “wooed” as Ryan chuckled and quietly said, “Thank you.” Ali then asked if the camera could get a full view of his outfit from him as she complimented Ryan saying, “I love shorts, loafers, and a jacket.”
Ryan then added, “To celebrate Ali Wentworth here, I’m in my summer suit,” teasing that designers are making these new suits because “the planet is warming” and it’s “so hot outside.”

On Monday, August 1, Ryan was joined by his ‘American Idol’ co-star Luke Bryan, 46. He and Ryan were all smiles as they walked into the ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’ studio, with the latter helping the former into his seat.
Ryan then told Luke how “excited” he was to have him co-hosting the show, as they’d “been talking about doing this for a long time.” The singer said, “I know, I’m excited,” adding, “this is fun!”
As Kelly was missing from the show, fans joked if she had won the lottery, after an “inside joke” Ryan and Kelly made about that on Friday, July 29. Last week, Kelly mentioned the big lottery drawing, saying, “All I know is, you will know I hit that jackpot if I’m not here on Monday. You will know.” Ryan then told fans to “tune in to find out.”
Ryan’s wardrobe malfunction
On Tuesday, August 2, Ryan was joined by TV personality Carson Kressley as co-host. After walking out to set with Carson, Ryan helped him sit in Kelly’s chair before sitting in his own usual spot. However, once seated, Ryan realized he had an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
Ryan revealed to everyone, “By the way, my fly is down,” as he quickly worked to zip up and correct the situation. Guest co-host Carson was quick to add, “What? I guess you’re just happy to see me!”
Ryan laughed and told his co-host that he had made a brisk change because he saw how great Carson looked in his suit. The ‘Queer Eye’ alum replied, “No, it looks fantastic,” Ryan reassured.
