Ryan Seacrest ate his feeling on Election night like all Americans. The 45-year-old “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” host threw his diet out the window and chowed down on greasy pizza as the votes came rolling in. Taking to his social media on Tuesday, October 3, the TV star opened wide and stuffed his face with the homemade meal while admitting he was anxiously awaiting the results.
Ryan Seacrest’s carb-loading comes just weeks after he missed work due to a health scare.
As The Blast reported, Kelly Ripa was left to host “LIVE” alone for two days last month when Ryan Seacrest was mysteriously missing from his co-host seat. The network was vague as to the reason why he wasn’t on the show, which caused many to worry.
When he finally reappeared alongside Kelly Ripa, Ryan Seacrest revealed his absence was due to waiting on the results of a COVID-19 test. “Thank you for covering, following the strict protocol,” he told his co-host before addressing fans.
“Got the negative test results for COVID. Makes you feel very good,” he added to which Kelly Ripa responded that she “didn’t have any doubts” about his condition. Just two weeks after his health scare, Ryan Seacrest threw his diet out the window and unapologetically shared his cheat night with fans.
Posting a picture of his yummy cheesy dinner on Instagram, the “American Idol” star shoved the greasy pizza in his mouth but not everyone was impressed with his carb-loading choice.

In a weird turn of events, Ryan Seacrest opted for nothing but ONIONS on his “mini” pizzas. The star has spoken out about his “mostly vegan” diet in the past but has admitted to being a big foodie. So, while he’s cheating on his TV diet with the greasy bread, he could be doing worse.
“First round of mini four onion pizzas while watching the coverage,” Ryan Seacrest captioned his pizza pic. The “LIVE” host’s followers immediately questioned his topping choice.
“Ryan..R U sure thts pizza your eating??,” one fan commented on the dinnertime snap. “Looks like burnt toast ?,” joked another. “Ryan where did you find that piece of rock you’re eating?” posted a third. Others couldn’t look away from Ryan Seacrest’s quarantine beard.
When he reappeared back on “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” after his health scare, Ryan Seacrest debuted a brand new look. The host let his beard grow and dyed it dark. His scruffy transformation has been getting mixed reviews.
