Remember Richard Curtis, the Souderton Area High School teacher who earned a temporary co-hosting spot on "Live! with Kelly"?
Well, the morning talk show announced recently that he'll be back Nov. 7 to sit alongside South Jersey native Kelly Ripa.
Honestly, so excited to be back in that chair! Hosting that show was incredible and I'm ready… https://t.co/mkGwEDTKa3— Richard Curtis (@mrrichcurtis) October 27, 2016
Curtis appeared on the show Oct. 21 after winning a fan contest called "Kelly and You" where anyone could try their hand at winning a co-hosting spot. Though, the potential stars have to endure a handful of challenges first.
Last week, Curtis tried his best at reading a teaser as a smoke machine blowed in his face while he ate peanut butter.
The search for a permanent co-host began since Michael Strahan left the show in May for a full-time job with "Good Morning America." Since then, an endless list of celebrities began filling in, including Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Hart, Fred Savage and Anderson Cooper while they searched for a permanent match.
Curtis thanked everyone who voted for him Tuesday.
