But his big breakthrough occurred in the host face-off for the premier of ‘American Idol.’ Ryan won and remains the globally recognized face of reason and acceptance as each stage act enters…and exits. Viewers have opined that some of the contestants may have fared better had they applied instead for a co-host position with Ryan!

He has come around to the idea of Podcasts and appreciates the way that they provide content that is easy to consume.

There is little doubt that Ryan Seacrest is still one of the busiest people in the showbusiness world. But today he is one of the wealthiest and most famous. One of his primary gigs is a fairly new one: “Live With Kelly and Ryan.” But he also continues to host and is a producer of American Idol. But after Fox dropped the show and ABC picked it back up, there was some hard dealing going down to get him back on the show.
It was even harder after Kelly Perry asked for a reality show record $25 million to sit as a judge for the show. After that Seacrest was offered so little that he very nearly walked away from the deal. In the end, all worked out. As a man who spent 15 seasons hosting the show, it held a special place in his heart. So he made the deal work. Seacrest also hosts a daily radio show and produces various reality shows. He also often hosts red carpet shows for E! and New Year’s specials for ABC; owns and runs a men’s line and a skincare brand, and has several endorsement deals.
Seacrest is 42 and presently shares his Manhattan townhouse with his girlfriend, Shayna Taylor, who is in her mid-20s. When it hit the air in 2002, American Idol quickly became a nation-wide sensation. By the end of its first season alone it had 23 million faithful weekly viewers.

After American Idol briefly went off the air supposedly for good, Seacrest looked for his next project, settling on Live Will Kelly and Ryan. To do that he relocated from Los Angeles, where he had been living for almost 20 years, to New York City. Learn about Ryan Seacrest clothing line here.
