As fans eagerly await the debut of Kelly Ripa's newest co-host, the show managed to get hearts racing with a well-timed tease.
After a spring finished with guest co-hosts and a summer of reruns, it seemed like LIVE!'s longtime frontwoman was finally going to name her new on-air partner after declaring a "big announcement" was about to take place during the first week of the show's new season.
On LIVE!'s Instagram account, a video popped up promising a surprise that would blow our minds. Immediately, it seemed like one of LIVE!'s repeat trial co-hosts was about to get the coveted seat next to Ripa. However, just as we feared, the announcement was too good to be true.
