As if Ryan Seacrest’s face wasn’t everywhere already, he’s going to be the host of a new quiz show called Million Second Quiz. He already has his own radio show, hosts American Idol and does the New Year’s Eve special on television, but apparently he felt the need to add something else to his resume.
Of the new job, Seacrest said, “I’m so excited to be hosting this new live game show on NBC, as it’s really a fun and different format that I believe will generate lots of fans across different platforms.”
Paul Telegdy, NBC’s president of alternative and late night programming said in a statement, “When people see Ryan Seacrest, whether at the Emmys, the Oscars or New Year’s Eve, he is at the epicenter of national events. He is a broadcaster, in all the traditional sense, but also in the most contemporary – he is an accomplished host of live TV and a master of social media and pop culture. This makes him perfect for the Million Second Quiz.”
The show is set to take place over the span of twelve days. It will challenge the contestants’ endurance along with their knowledge. The players will have to play the game for 24 hours a day for one million seconds. The winner will walk away with a ten million dollar prize. Will you be tuning in to watch?
