Michael Strahan’s announced departure from Live! with Kelly and Michael caused quite the stir, and the situation heightened after Kelly didn’t show up to work the following few days. After appearing together on this morning’s show, it seems the dust is finally starting to settle and all is well again in daytime television. While we will all miss Michael on the show, it’s time to discuss replacements! Here’s a look at 10 celebrities who should be in the running to replace Michael on Live!
10. Jesse Palmer
Why not just trade in one former professional football player for another? Jesse Palmer might seem like an odd addition when lined up with some of the other contestants on this list, but upon closer consideration, he’s actually got some co-hosting and lots of broadcasting experience — more so than some of the others on this list! He’s been a guest host on Live!, and The View and he recently joined Good Morning America as a special contributor. He should just swap spots with Michael! In addition to his guest hosting gigs, this Canadian sports commentator and football player was the fifth season Bachelor, hosted Food Truck Face Off for one season and two seasons of Recipe to Riches.
