During a recent taping of LIVE With Kelly and Ryan, Co-Host Ryan Seacrest showed some seriously admirable dedication when he took a nose dive off his (very tall) chair.

He was trying to catch a large balloon at the time.

The man is a consummate professional.


For anybody that hasn't seen the show, each episode features a short trivia game show portion where travel trips are given away as prizes to a lucky caller from somewhere across the U.S.

Before the person's gets on the phone and takes the question, there's a whole lot of hoopla.

Think confetti, costumed dancers.

On this particular occasion, hoopla meant gigantic New Year's Eve themed balloons. It's those balloons we have to thank for this wonderful Seacrest moment.

Behold, friends.

Cue the meme response to the plight of celebrities.




Aaaand this is why we have Live TV folks.

Good news is that Seacrest seems to be unscathed and clearly supported by co-stars and producers alike.

He even had some more fun shortly after his initial post.

It's important to note that if this were still the Live! With Regis and Kelly years, it could have been Regis Philbin in that chair, reaching for a balloon, flying to the ground.

Here's to a healthy Reege!

When singles finally find a romantic partner after what may have seemed like an eternal love drought, they make sure they put in all the effort it takes to keep that relationship going strong.

However, there are those who are convinced that the love they found is too good to be true–probably because they may feel they don't deserve it or because they have doubts.

That's the thing about those who don't trust a good thing when it happens. Their skepticism can be all-consuming and it can lead to self-sabotaging the relationship.

Ever since the global pandemic hit in March 2020, we found ourselves becoming a bit more cognizant of protecting ourselves from contagious diseases.

Sadly, masks, face shields, and hand sanitizer can't protect us from everything.

Some diseases are simply in our DNA and will begin wreaking havoc on our bodies without any sort of warning.

Many of these diseases come with symptoms that we'd only thought could be found in horror movies.

You never know anyone quite as well as you think you do.

Even your closest friends and family members have a way of surprising you upon revealing something about their past, or their interests and hobbies.

Sometimes, however, surprised doesn't even begin to cover how you feel about what you just learned.

Some people are so good at covering up sad, dark, even despicable elements of their lives, that you would never have known had you not somehow found out yourself.

Even if it's debatable whether or not you're better off knowing this information.

We can't be brilliant every second of every day.

Even the Mensa-level brains that walk among us have their off moments.

It is inescapable.

Sometimes IQ doesn't matter.
