Born and raised in Atlanta, Seacrest has been the heart and soul of television and in radio for many years, beginning as the host of such kids shows as, "Gladiators 2000" (1994), Fox Family Channel's Wild Animal Games (1995) (TV), and "Click" (1997/II), which ultimately led him to his afternoon gig at Los Angeles's Radio Station, 98.7 FM, on which he hosts and produces the #1 daily afternoon talk show, "Ryan Seacrest for The Ride Home." In the summer of 2002, he began to find fame as the host of "American Idol" (2002), a "Star Search" (1983) clone in which contestants try their best at auditioning a song before going on stage and to find out, who's really, the American Idol. He hosted the first two seasons of the show and after finishing the popular series, Ryan serves in the same capacity for "American Juniors" (2003). As in Idol, he will interact with the talent and judges, in order to keep track of viewers through the weekly show that will make it a successful hit.IMDb Mini Biography By: Gary Richard Collins II <email@example.com>

Boyfriend of Julianne Hough [June 2010 - March 2013].
[on the death of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew]: We're praying for her. I sent her an email to share my sorrow for what she went through and asked her if there was anything we could do.
[on Dick Clark]: I saw him recently, and he was in a fantastic mood. I know he loves this show and loves being in Times Square. What's great about Dick is he doesn't need much of a plan.
[on Paula Abdul]: The rumors? They're not true. She's part of our family. And we love her.
[on the departure of Paula Abdul, who was one of the judges]: So the news that Paula Abdul is leaving 'American Idol' stunned me last night. She's a dear friend, I love her to death, and it's really sad that it's come to fruition. I'm just bummed and I think if you were to talk to Randy or Simon they'd say the same thing. It's just sad. It bums us out.
[on his romance with Teri Hatcher]: I think we can assume that we've been together. If I wanted to have my picture taken I would have gone to a popular celebrity restaurant. The Ivy, [the restaurant where he was photographed with Hatcher] was far out of town. That was a surprise to me.
If Simon does get married it would be an even bigger event than the Oscars. I'm still not convinced that there's going to be a wedding, because I have known him for so long and I'm waiting for this to be a big practical joke. I'm expecting him to put out a press release like the Jonas Brothers, saying I too have given out a commitment ring. I honestly don't think there will be a wedding.
[Who jokingly said about Simon Cowell getting married]: I hope that if they are building a life together, there aren't too many mirrors around to distract him from his girlfriend!
[Of his on- and off-screen rivalry with Simon Cowell, who used to be one of the judges]: We are as competitive as two individuals can be, but there was a time when we both didn't have anything. There was a time when, I know, he lost all of his money, and I certainly came here with a Honda Prelude, so I didn't have anything either. So I think there's a part of us that really is driven to be successful?... However, it's kind of a fun-and-games thing, where we try and one-up one another.
[Of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt]: Yeah...but they live in France! There's an NBC deal there. NBC hosted the Globes, and they have a deal to talk to the people who come to the Globes. Here's what I realized when I went down there. I realized quickly that's against the rules to walk down onto the carpet from the platform. Then we went back down there and caught up with Tom Cruise, who I think is a terrific guy. I think he's really cool. By the way, have you seen his skin tone up close lately? You should!
[Of Rich Fields]: Rich Fields is the glue that holds The Price is Right together. His voice makes me feel safe. He is the unsung hero of the show.
