Inside Ryan Seacrest's 'exhausting' life juggling American Idol, Live & MORE after fans worry over 'concerning' behavior

WE are taking a look inside Ryan Seacrest's busy schedule after fans were concerned about his concerning behavior.

Last night, his eye was drooping and twitching on American Idol.

Fans feared for him as this has happened in the past to the 47-years-old.

During last night's finale, Ryan also appeared to say some words inscrutably and wave his hands around at points as he spoke rapidly between acts that viewers pointed out on Twitter.

They feared he might have had a stroke of that something was severely wrong with him.

"Am I the only one noticing Ryan Seacrest’s eye again? What’s happening?" asked one fan.

"The way we’re all worried about Ryan’s eye instead of the finale is telling," noticed a second fan.

Fans also noticed that he messed up the name of Melissa Ethridge's album, One Way Out, when he said On The Way Out.

Other Twitter users noticed he was babbling and talking a lot.

This happened to him before in 2020 when he slurred his speech and appeared unable to focus properly.

It could be from exhaustion because the Idol host has multiple jobs and hosting duties.

Here's a look inside his busy schedule- from American Idol to Live With Kelly and Ryan, to hosting a radio show, and more.


Although the judges have seen major changes on Idol, Ryan is the one thing that's been a constant.

Since season one, he has been hosting the singing competition.

However, he had help in the first season when he was a co-host with Brian Dunkleman.

After taking on solo hosting duties for the rest of the series, Ryan also took on American Juniors, American Idol for young children.

That show only lasted one season, so he didn't have to worry about tackling that as well.

He returned for the ABC reboot and continues to appear for every episode, even though he has other duties he is tackling as well.


In 2004, Ryan took on a new venture when he became the new host of the radio program American Top 40.

One month later, he became the host of KIIS-FM's morning show.

He continues to be the host of both shows, which are Los Angeles radio stations.

Ryan told Jimmy Kimmel in 2018 that immediately after shooting Live, he has to head to another office in the same building to host the host, immediately after.

He hosts that show every day for four hours a day.

With his busy schedule, Ryan joked that he has to schedule bathroom breaks.

"I try to go to the bathroom every once in a while, but that only happens on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays," he joked.

The host also runs On Air With Ryan Seacrest, which was launched the same time as Top 40.

The radio shows used to be hosted in Los Angeles, but in 2017 they built a station in New York City, making it a bit easier for Ryan's daily life.

Also on Saturdays, Ryan is an on-air personality for Kristal FM, hosting WSTR and KYSR stations.

As of now, his contract with iHeartMedia lasts through 2025 and is expected to be renewed.


While juggling Idol, Ryan became a staple on ABC.

In 2005, he became the executive producer and co-host of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.

He started to co-host with the actor, due to his limited mobility from his stroke.

In 2009, the network renamed the show Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

The telecast aired every year on ABC since 1972 and was hosted by Dick Clark until his death in 2012.

In 2013, Ryan hosted the program with Jenny McCarthy and became the permanent host.

Although this event only happens once a year, there is a lot of preparation that goes into the role.

Last December, the radio host signed a multi-year contract to continue hosting the program.


For years, Live With Kelly and Regis was a staple on TV, but once Regis Philbin passed away the network needed another co-host that had enough experience.

Cue, Ryan Seacrest.

On May 2017, the show announced that Ryan would be the new co-host and executive producer after a year-long search.

He succeeded Michael Strahan and started his hosting duties the day of the announcement.

Although Ryan was a pro at hosting by now, the two main programs he was involved with caused him to travel a lot.

Idol is filmed in California while Live is in New York.

During Idol season, Ryan is constantly traveling from coast to coast to host both shows- Live in the morning and Idol at night.

Luckily, Idol isn't a year-round gig.


Aside from his everyday gigs, Ryan has dipped his toes in basically every program.

He used to be a red carpet correspondent for E! until 2021, which he was a part of for 14 years.

Ryan didn't give a reason, except that he was focusing on other projects.

Besides E!, he was a correspondent for the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games.

The Idol host has had some movie roles as well including Shrek Forever After, New Year's Eve, and Knocked Up.

He has also been the host to many Jingle Balls and iHeartRadio concerts.

Ryan also became the host of Disney Family Sing-Alongs in 2020 during the pandemic.

He has hosted and starred in many other programs since his career began.


Along with hosting TV and radio programs, Ryan executive produces many of them and other shows.

In 2006, he founded Ryan Seacrest Productions, which he named his long-time agent CEO in 2008.

Although he left hosting duties with E!, Ryan is still the EP for the red carpet coverage and is the managing editor of E! News.

He also produced Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the show's multiple spin-offs.

In 2017, RSP signed a multi-year deal between them and ABC Studios to produce scripted projects.


Most people know Ryan from his hosting duties, but not many people know of his work with other companies.

He is an investor and partner at Pathwater, a brand of purified water offered in a refillable aluminum bottle

In 2017, Ryan partnered with Harold Lancer to produce the men's skincare line Polished.

He also had his hand in other fashion adventures, making suits for many retailers.

Perhaps one of the biggest companies he is involved with is the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, which he launched in 2010.

According to the website, The Ryan Seacrest Foundation is a "non-profit 501 organization dedicated to inspiring today’s youth through entertainment and education focused initiatives."


Between flying from New York City to Los Angeles and back basically every day, Ryan barely has time for a personal life.

Us Weekly exclusively confirmed his relationship with Aubrey Paige in June 2021.

He started dating the 24-year-old one year after his split from longtime girlfriend, Shayna Taylor.

The American Idol host had sparked relationship rumors in May 2021 when he arrived at The Hamptons in Austin, TX, via helicopter with Aubrey.

The model is a Texas native.

The couple has kept their relationship pretty private, but many of his friends including Kelly Ripa are fond of her.

Despite their 23-year age difference, they seem to be going strong.

He even told The Wall Street Journal that he is thinking about becoming a dad, a desire which began in 2021.

“I start thinking about blocking off certain times in my month or year or week to focus on my personal life. I do want to have kids. But I haven’t even gone down that path, which is nuts at my age,” he told the outlet.

“I think in the last year, it’s become clear to me that yes, I do want to do that. I want to be available and present.”

They've been seen out together many times while going to the gym or running errands.

The couple made a rare appearance together in April 2022 at the LACMA 2022 Collectors Committee Gala in Hollywood.

Ryan has acknowledged that he needs to slow down.

In December 2021, he spoke with WSJ Magazine about taking some time off after his first health scare.

“It’s personal, but I definitely knew that I needed to slow down….I just had burnt myself out. I was absolutely beat and fatigued and just wasn’t letting myself accept that. Now I do," he explained.

"To say no to things is difficult. You want to say yes. When I say no to something, I feel guilt in terms of an obligation.”
