He’s produced countless radio programs, TV shows, and movies. The entertainment industry star currently hosts two of the nation’s most major radio shows. He’s responsible for hosting some of America’s top television series, not to mention joining a grossly popular show just a year ago.
All of this came after he left his home state of Georgia – he was born and raised in Atlanta – having recently shed some 200-odd pounds from his super-stocky frame and flew to the entertainment capital of the Western world – Los Angeles, California, specifically the Hollywood Hills.
Who is this superstar?
American Idol was the first “big break” for Mr. Seacrest, a spot he landed after roughly a decade spent across television and radio shows alike in the Los Angeles, Hollywood, and greater Southern California areas.
Mr. Ryan Seacrest is highly respected in the industries – not just one industry, like most actors, radio personalities, television hosts, dancers, writers, and people of other occupations across the arts – he participates in and regularly sweeps the floor of competitors for the proverbial grand prize of millions of dollars’ compensation.
Everyone even remotely familiar with the dapper, attractive, suave man best known as practically the only American Idol host in the show’s history should learn about the person he was during childhood and adolescence. It just might surprise you.
Seacrest’s younger years weren’t like most people’s childhoods
Seemingly just about everybody considers childhood to be the greatest years of their lives. Kids largely do not have any responsibilities – no bills to pay, no jobs to work – and can burn every waking hour outside of school playing with friends, video games, and other enjoyable activities.
Ryan Seacrest, the host of On Air with Ryan Seacrest, according to none other than himself in a big-time, widely-circulated interview in the magazine Men’s Journal a few years ago, was an overweight, ugly, nerdy, shy, weird kid in school.
He felt he was so “unique” – he recently shared pictures of those blunder years, coming out as an outcast of a child, something he’d never shared before – because his weight killed his confidence. After exercising enough for 100 people following high school graduation, he resituated in Los Angeles and felt the weight loss built the Ryan Seacrest we know today.
