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?
