Early Years

Ryan John Seacrest was born on December 24, 1974, in Atlanta, Georgia. His upbringing was in Dunwoody, Georgia. As a child, Ryan enjoyed acting with a toy microphone. He interned at the radio station WSTR-FM (Star 64) while attending Dunwoody High School as a teen.
When the DJ called in sick, Seacrest received his first opportunity to broadcast. He performed so well that the station gave him the overnight weekend shift. In 1992, following his high school graduation, he enrolled at the University of Georgia to study journalism. After his freshman year, he dropped out of school and moved to Hollywood to pursue a career in radio.

Personal Life

In 2009, Seacrest disclosed his on-again, off-again relationship with model Sara Jean Underwood on The Howard Stern Show. In April 2010, Seacrest began dating Julianne Hough of Dancing with the Stars. It was announced on March 15, 2013, that their relationship had ended. They dated for more than two years before breaking up.

On May 14, 2016, he returned to the University of Georgia to offer alumni advice and to receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree.

Since 2013, Seacrest has had on-again, off-again relationships with model and personal chef Shayna Taylor. They met through mutual acquaintances. They briefly separated in 2014, moved in together in May 2017, and separated again in February 2019. By September of 2019, Seacrest and Taylor had reunited. On June 29, 2020, it was reported that the couple had separated for the third time and that Ryan had moved on with a new companion with whom he was on vacation in Mexico.

Taylor posted the following to her Instagram account after the breakup: “You will never have to convince the appropriate individual to love you. If they are unwilling to show up, you cannot change them, force them to do the work, or convince them to commit to you. Change must originate internally, and actions always speak louder than words.” She was reportedly ready for marriage, while 45-year-old Seacrest was not.

Seacrest and Kelly Ripa paid tribute to the late Regis Phibin in July 2020, following his passing.


In 1993, Seacrest moved to Los Angeles and was hired by ESPN to host “Radical Outdoor Challenge” that same year. From 1994 to 1996, he hosted the children’s version of “American Gladiators,” “Gladiators 2000.” He hosted “Wild Animal Games” in 1995 and “Click” in 1997. During this time, he also appeared as the host of the fictional game show “Lover’s Lane” on the “Beverly Hills, 90210″ episode “The Final Proof.” During the second half of the year 2000, Seacrest hosted “NBC Saturday Night Movie.” Between 2001 and 2003, Seacrest hosted the prank show “Ultimate Revenge.”

In 2002, Fox approached Seacrest about hosting a new competition-style reality show titled “American Idol.” We are all aware of what happened next. American Idol’s immense popularity made Ryan Seacrest a celebrity. Seacrest continued to host “American Idol” until its April 2016 finale on Fox. He also returned for the season of American Idol on ABC.

In February of 2004, Seacrest replaced Rick Dees on the Los Angeles radio station KIIS-morning FM’s show. Monday through Friday from 6 am to 10 am Pacific time, “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” airs.

Seacrest is the executive producer and co-host of “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” since 2005. That first year, Clark had recently suffered a stroke, so Seacrest hosted the majority of New Year’s Eve. The annual program was renamed “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest” in 2009. In 2013, Seacrest renewed his contract with the program. 2019 marked the 15th year that Seacrest has hosted the New Year’s Eve special.

In 2011, Ellen sold the home for $36.5 million to Ryan. A year later, he paid $2 million for the adjacent property.

The 9,200-square-foot home has nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a pool, two attached guest houses, a separate three-bedroom house, and lush gardens.
