Ryan Seacrest is known as the host of the "American Idol" but what is no longer a secret is that he was the man who found the Kardashians and after watching them on film at a family barbecue realized that he might have struck 'gold' in the reality show genre with this family.
In an interview with "Haute Living" he disclosed how he initially loved watching "The Osbournes" after which he started thinking about who another show could be about. In what has turned out to be a master stroke of talent discovery and a little bit of good luck he had one of the people in his office buy a video camera and go to their house and videotape the family having a barbecue. He had heard that the family might be interested in this type of show and the love and shenanigans that took place at the barbecue confirmed that they would be great for a reality show.
The American television host noted how he remembers the moment the camera man phoned him from the house on a Sunday afternoon and told him how he was going to love the tape because the family was so funny and they had so much love for one another. The barbecue was like a reality show model in that the family's hijinks and love for one another lead to chaos and them throwing each other into the pool (new.com.au - reality tv - January 19).
It is almost inconceivable for some fans and entertainment observers to believe that a chaotic family barbecue that included Kardashian family members throwing each other into the pool was what attracted Ryan Seacrest to the family and resulted in him bringing to the television screens of America the reality television show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", a show that has become one of the most popular shows on television.
Ryan Seacrest with his discovery of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" has proven himself a superstar when it comes to identifying television talent and has some fans wondering what might be his new 'discovery' in 2015.
