Ladies and gentleman, we have a dark horse in the competition to become Live!'s new co-host.
Since Michael Strahan's high-profile exit from Live!, the search has been on for Kelly Ripa's new co-host, with a merry-go-round of guests filling the seat next to her, attempting to win over Kelly, now an executive producer, executives and viewers. Some of the biggest names in the running includeJerry O'Connell, who E! News was told "really" wants the job, and Fred Savage, among others.
However, that all changed on Oct. 21, when a high school teacher from Perkasie, Penn., won a social media contest to co-host Live!, and the world met and immediately fell in love with Richard Curtis.
