Replacing Philbin? Another Contender For Coveted Regis Spot!

| Filed under: TV NewsSIGHtingMario Lopez

AC Slater for Regis Seat

Whoa whoa whoa!

Another person in the running?? We thought Perezzers had this locked down?? LOLz!

Looks like we can add the beautiful Mario Lopez to list of people who want Reeg Philbin's empty hosting chair when he leaves this fall!

Having met with the bosses THREE times about it, a source says that he was also was spotted having an intimate meeting with executive producer Michael Gelman for the show!!

Wow!

If that's true, good luck Mario! You'd be pretty fab up there!

The question is: would you turn the chair backwards to sit in it??

Thoughts on Mario Lopez as the replacement??

    Not so Much!

    NOOOOO!!! Please no. He is so cheesy and annoying. The show would lose all credibility.



  3. 3

    No No No!!! This would be a huge mistake. This requires a nicer, more likable person than Mario. Anderson Cooper would have been great, but he is otherwise tied up, I guess.

    Not bad. Pretty good for that show and its target audience.



  5. 5

    Mmmmmm No!

    This guy is such an arrogant d-bag!!!! I watched his reality show once…..his wife's family should have kicked his ass…..he's a controlling jerk and treats his wife like she's below him. Mario…pls get back under your D-list rock and don't come out!!!!

    dud

    As long as the new host is like Regis and has no idea who the guests are, everything will be fine!! Google Search keywords "The Media Jerk" to read Heartless criticism of the day's biggest celebrity news stories!!

    Bad idea. Other than reading a teleprompter, what is he good at? I doubt the housewives will care about him - I mean, I don't even think he's circumcized.



  11. 11

    No, No, and NO!!!!!!!



  12. 12

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    I made the mistake of watching a few minutes of his "reality" show in which he shared with the world that he is uncircumsized! Never needed to know that and now that is all I can think about when I see his smug face.

    BOOOH, this dude is the Worst host ever. I stopped watching Extra because of him. He is so full of himself



  15. 15

    nooooo! talk about jumping the shark!!!

    OMG you have got to be kidding me. What the hell. That would be a real slap in the face to Regis to be replaced with a dirt bag wannabe like this thing. He is a freak. I don't watch the show that much, depends on who the guest is but there is no way that I would watch even 1 eppy if he sits in that chair. No way. Disgusting little man.



  17. 17

    Bwahaha!! AC…..good one! Agreed not a good replacement. Next….



  18. 18

    He'd probably be better than Regis… Perhaps he could actually pronounce people's names and have an idea who he's talking about.



  19. 19

    Dude's hiding something….whatever it is…some weird vibe

    Mario sitting in a couple of times a year is fine. If Mario becomes a daily fixture, I'm going to miss Kelly because I won't waste time watching. Mario's pretty — but he's also phony and shallow, Mark Consuelos lite. Too bad Probst, Kimmel and Cooper have "day" jobs, because I'd watch for them — they're smart, informed and have lots to bring to the table.

    For Kelly's sake, I hope they forget about the himbo; dimples aren't everything.
