Last week, the producers of the hit morning show shared their usual behind-the-scenes clip of Seacrest and his co-host, Kelly Ripa, kicking off the installment. However, instead of sporting his usual sophisticated hosting attire (a blue or grey suit), he opted to wear a robe slung over his shirtless body. “Bet you weren’t expecting that! It’s Friday!” the caption read.
Ryan Seacrest Looked *Very* Different on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’
“Why is he wearing his bathrobe like that?” Ripa said in the footage. “Well, I will tell you. He's very sore from working out with Jillian Michaels yesterday. Jillian Michaels, she's magic.”
“Literally overnight,” Seacrest stated. “I thought it was a dream. I woke up, I turned on the lights and boom, there I was. Everything I always wanted. Gelman, maybe you can help me out. There it is. Look at that. Isn't that amazing overnight? Right?”
However, as we quickly learned in the clip, he wasn’t actually shirtless under that robe...but instead, he had on a muscle suit.
The All My Children alum was quick to some sliiiiight inconsistencies. “Did you have a sunburn or...? No. But—You seem to be peeling a little bit,” she responded.
And we weren‘t the only ones who loved this little prank. Fans and followers showed their appreciation in the comments section, with one even writing, “Whoa! You HAVE been working out, haven’t you, Ryan?!”
