“American Idol” host Ryan Seacrest had a dress emergency during Sunday’s live stream of the competition’s final.
Seacrest ended up swapping boxers with a stylist named Miles during the commercial break — a quick fix to Seacrest’s “anatomy” problem, referring to his genitals, visible through his pants.
Seacrest told the story to his co-host Kelly Ripa during Monday morning’s episode of “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”
“Miles is responsible for the suits I put on — he makes sure everything is lined up and buttoned up,” Seacrest told Ripa. “You know when you go to an ad and they’re like, ‘Can I tell you something? You need to change your underwear.'”
The host said he was confused at first, then told viewers noticed Seacrest’s “in-plane anatomy” on stage in his suit pants. But Seacrest had no extra underwear. The host says Miles just told her, “Don’t worry, I got mine.” The two men quickly stripped and swapped boxers.
“He’s English, so he’s got shorter, tighter ones,” Seacrest explained to an outraged Ripa, who insisted the solution should have been to change the camera shot, not swap shots. underwear.
“So we go backstage during the commercial and find a little corner and I literally take off my pants and my underwear and put his on,” Seacrest said. “Anything for the show, right? It’s a family show.”
Ripa asked her to explain exactly what was wrong with her “underpants” in the first place.
“Was it decreasing or increasing?” she asked, referring to whether the issue made her genitals appear smaller or larger.
“I haven’t read the comments and never will,” Seacrest replied. But then an audience member appeared to confirm it was “improving” and Ripa said she would have insisted that the original undies “stay”.
Seacrest ended the segment saying there was a “freak” over the underwear, but Miles fixed it, making it a “TV first” for the veteran host.
