Live With Kelly: Coast-to-Coast Co-Host Finalists Challenge Day 2


Live With Kelly: Coast-to-Coast Co-Host Search

The “Live” Coast-to-Coast Co-Host Search is a competition in which one lucky fan will get the chance to sit next to Kelly for a day as guest co-host. Last week, the finalists were announced, and with today’s elimination of Rory Kramer from North Hollywood, CA, the finalists were down to four contenders.

On “Live with Kelly” July 16, the finalists competed in the first of the week’s challenges to determine a winner. All week long, the finalists will go head-to-head in a series of challenges. Then, it’s up to the studio audience and home audience (aka, YOU!) to vote for your favorite. On “Live With Kelly” July 17, the four remaining finalists were asked a series of questions in 60 seconds, in order to test their quick thinking. Let’s take a look at some of their answers:


1. Will Tant from New York, NY
