Season 16 winner Maddie Poppe just spilled a major secret about the American Idol finale and, um, how could you?

On yesterday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the 19-year-old threw host Ryan Seacrest under the bus while discussing how it felt to win the ABC series.

She said, “I have to tell you guys something. Ryan you’re really bad at hiding the card.” Yes, as in the piece of paper with the winner’s name on it.

Was it a one-time mishap on Seacrest’s part? Nope. The American Idol winner also revealed that it’s been a problem throughout the entire season.

“Every week you have it, and I always know I can see it, but I never look,” she added. “But yesterday, there was a moment where me and Caleb look at each other because we both looked at the card before you said it. I couldn’t help it.”

Not that we blame her, but you’d think Seacrest would be able to keep a secret after all these seasons. Way to go, Steve Harvey Ryan.

So, Ryan Seacrest Split His Pants and Showed Major Leg on Live TV
