Months after Michael Strahan very publicly (and dramatically) departed Live, Kelly Ripa teased her fans by saying a "big announcement" was coming — which we took to mean she would finally be revealing her new co-host.
While the announcement did in fact have to do with who would be sitting in Strahan's empty seat, it still wasn't exactly the news we were anticipating.
On Wednesday's show, the 45-year-old revealed that FANS would have a chance to be her cohost for the day through the new contest Live With Kelly & You! Oh…
Since Strahan's departure for GMA, Ripa has been hosting Live alongside a rotation of guest stars like Christian Slater, Rob Lowe, Anderson Cooper, and Andy Cohen — but who needs those celebs when you have Live superfan Pam from Indiana!?
(JK, Pam, we're sure you're very charismatic…)
What an opportunity! For all those who think Ripa's job is easy, now you finally have a chance to prove it!
Fans have until September 20 to submit on the Live website — will YOU try your luck at being the next Live cohost?

Another year, another celebrity painfully skewered by jokes at Comedy Central's annual roast!
Only it wasn't the roastee who received the bulk of the heat at this year's Roast of Rob Lowe!
On Monday night, the Parks and Recreation alum subjected himself to the comedic barbs from the likes of David Spade, Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson, Peyton Manning, Jewel, and roast veteran Jeff Ross.
The actor certainly got roasted throughout the night, mostly for the 1988 sex tape he made with a 16-year-old girl — like when roastmaster Spade quipped:
"Rob starred in Austin Powers two 16 years ago. Can you believe that? 16? Or as Rob calls it, ‘18'… Rob has been called a comeback kid… sorry I read that wrong, he came on a kid's back."
While the 52-year-old took plenty of jabs — Davidson claimed doctors described him as "Gonorrhea patient zero" — it was one of Lowe's roasters Ann Coulter who took most of the abuse during the special.
At least Rob Lowe has a good sense of humor about that sex tape scandal.
In case you didn't know, a sex tape leaked in 1988 showing the Parks & Recreation alum legally having sex with a 16-year-old, since they hooked up in Georgia where the age of consent is 16.
And now, decades later, the You, Me, & The Apocalypse actor is poking fun at the very sex scandal that almost derailed his career.
On Wednesday, a video was released of the 52-year-old completely naked, seemingly performing a sexual act with his back to the camera.
But when The Lion Guard star turned around,
The conservative political commentator, who was there to roast the Parks and Recreation actor — and plug her new book In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! — received by far the worst of the heat from the comedians.
The political pundit admitted she had "no idea" why the special turned into a roast of her, but guesses it was because Comedy Central — in her opinion — isn't funny anymore! She told The Hollywood Reporter:
This is too funny!!!
Though it may not air until Labor Day, Rob Lowe's roast was filmed last night for Comedy Central and it is SO brutal and funny!!
Peyton Manning, David Spade, Jewel, Jimmy Carr, Jeffrey Ross, and more were there to blow up the actor's spot in the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe, and it is too funny to wait until early September to see!!
Ch-ch-check out some of the best one-liners from the show (below), including this gem from Spade:
Hollywood has lost another great.
As we previously reported, beloved director and producer Garry Marshall passed away on Tuesday evening due to complications of pneumonia, not long after he had suffered from a stroke, in a hospital located in Burbank, CA. He was 81 years old.
Marshall is best known for launching many actors' careers through his hits like Pretty Woman, The Princess Diaries, Beaches, and more. So it's no wonder that this death quite an impact on Tinseltown. In fact, many A-listers have since taken to Twitter and Instagram to mourn the late industry vet — including Rob Lowe, Mandy Moore, Kathy Bates, and countless others.
Rob Lowe just scored major points for this one!
While Michele's post breakup weekend started with some wine and hikes with her girlfriends, she ultimately ended up at the actor's picturesque home that he shares with longtime wife Sheryl Lowe. The lovely estate features a lush backyard and outdoor swing that Ms. Michele took full advantage of all weekend long!
Check out the relaxing and adorable photos from the trip (below)!
