America’s Funniest Home Videos just added a little bit of spring to their step!
This weekend, Tom Bergeron announced that he was ending his 14-year stint as the host of the long running ABC show.
On Tuesday night during the Dancing with the Stars finale, he revealed that last season’s champion Alfonso Ribeiro will be taking over as AFV host!
The announcement was made right after the Fresh Prince of Bel Air star performed with fellow season 19 contestant Sadie Robertson!
The 43-year-old was extremely grateful for his new gig, gushing to Bergeron:
“You have given me so much love and support in doing this. I’m so proud.”
Bergeron congratulated his successor, but also saw it as an opportunity to reference the time Ribeiro’s partner Witney Carson accidentally kneed him in the groin last season! Ha!
See the whole announcement in the video (below!)
AVF will return for its 26th season later this year, Sunday nights at 7!
