All of central Connecticut is pulling for its hometown comedic hero as he vyes for the chance to co-host Live! With Kelly all this week. Competing against four other contestants, the vivacious You-Tube sensation from Meriden, 31, "hopped on stage sporting his signature glasses, a suit and pink-striped tie," Monday, according to a story in the Record-Journal.
Today’s challenge, “The Gift of Gab,” the R-J reported, had finalists explain why they deserve to co-host the show as part of a Coast-to-Coast Co-Host Search — to a full-size cardboard cutout of Kelly Ripa in a salmon-colored dress with a frilly hem.
He told the audience he'd been waiting his whole life for the chance to host a live television show.
