Ryan Seacrest has been accused of letting himself go amid concerns about his morning co-host Kelly Ripa‘s “extreme” behavior. The 45-year-old “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” host thought he was being real when he posted a selfie post-workout but it backfired when followers went after his “sloppy” appearance.
Taking to his social media on Saturday, November 14, Ryan Seacrest turned the camera on himself and smiled for an after-workout snap. Sporting a completely new look, the usually manicured star’s appearance sparked some concerns.
Capturing a picture of himself in his home, the “American Idol” host smiled big while revealing he’s been growing out his dark hair. Showcasing a few curls at the end, Ryan Seacrest’s hairdo wasn’t the only new thing about him. The star’s been growing out his beard during quarantine and after skipping two days of work, he revealed he dyed his gray facial hair brown.
Wearing a plain white t-shirt and gold chain, fans weren’t impressed with Ryan Seacrest’s new look.

Revealing he just got done with a weekend workout, the “LIVE” host posed for his sweaty selfie. Comparing himself to a 22-year-old pop star, Ryan Seacrest captioned the photo by writing, “Post workout. Am I doing this long hair thing right @shawnmendes?”
While he collected some admirers who dug the new ‘do, several trolls spoke up revealing their disapproval. Ryan Seacrest’s new look sparked concerns in his comment section with someone even begging the star to “BRING BACK THE OLD RYAN!”
“I mean, with the hair and beard you aged like 10 years so I would at BRING BACK THE OLD RYAN! CLEAN CUT AND WELL GROOMED,” one follower replied which gained tons of attention. “I so agree it time he cut that hair….,” another commented back. “I agree, looks very sloppy and not a good look at all,” wrote someone else.
Not everyone hated Ryan Seacrest’s “sloppy” style. “I am loving his look????,” added a fourth fan to which someone else instructed him to “let it grow!”
The attack on his appearance comes just days after fans expressed concern over Kelly Ripa’s “extreme” behavior. As The Blast reported, “LIVE” viewers began trolling the morning show’s Instagram account asking, what has “been wrong with Kelly?” Fans accused her of being “over the top,” extra “hyper,” and even claimed she’s made it “uncomfortable” to watch the show.
Kelly Ripa has yet to address their worries but after Ryan’s selfie, it’s clear she’s not the one on they are concerned about.
