After the first four choices turned them down, it looks like Michael Strahan will become the next co-host of Live With Kelly And The Ex-Football Player. It also looks like Michael won't have to keep renting luxury cars anymore and will be too busy working to follow Nicole Murphy 24 hours a day like he does now. I'm not sure anyone saw this choice coming. Michael did a good job when he co-hosted and when Seth Meyers and Anderson Cooper and NPH turned them down and the producers got tired of Nick Lachey calling them every few minutes to see if they had reached a decision, then the big winner was Michael Strahan. The announcement is expected in September and Michael will continue to be a part of the panel on FOX NFL Sunday. Were there better choices out there? Yes. But, don't forget that Kelly wants to be the star. With everyone who turned them down, Kelly would not have been the star. Plus, if they had given Nick the job then everyday people would have been waiting for Kelly to go on vacation so Vanessa could step in, so that was not going to happen. With Michael, Kelly is the star. Period. As friendly as she is, she is still an actress deep down inside and wants to be loved and wants to be the center of attention and having Michael there will allow her that role.
