In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek at the episode, Ripa, 50, and Seacrest, 46, reveal the nominees for best celebrity walkout and share clips of each one.
Work It actress Liza Koshy earned her nomination for an at-home walkout filmed for a virtual interview, during which she danced down the stairs to MC Hammer’s “Can’t Touch This.” Finally, Property Brothers stars Jonathan and Drew Scott walked out with a special escort — Seacrest himself.
Ripa and Seacrest have hosted Live together since May 2017, but had to spend some of the past year filming separately due to the coronavirus pandemic. They reunited in-person in September to kick off the season 33 premiere of the morning talk show after 180 days apart.
“He just brings a joyfulness, an enthusiasm, a professionalism and an authenticity to this place that I’m just so grateful to have here,” said Ripa.
“I’m using every ounce of energy to fight back tears right now while she’s saying that,” an emotional Seacrest responded.
“Working with your friends is a great privilege. It is a joy, and I have to say that it is a rare thing to work with a guy who is so authentic and fun and joyful and humble and generous and kind to everyone,” Ripa added. “What you see of Ryan on the air is the person he is backstage, which is a unique thing.”
