Jerry SeinfeldDuring Monday’s show, and the first time the show was simply dubbed Live! With Kelly, both Ripa and Jerry Seinfeld mercilessly teased the audience and the home viewers about a big announcement they were going to make. Of course everyone assumed that announcement was the name of the person to permanently serve as co-host with Kelly Ripa.

That wasn’t to be the case, however. Instead Kelly Ripa and Jerry Seinfeld announced (eventually, after some torturous teasing) that the show would be traveling to Hawaii in February. While there, the show will be throwing a destination wedding. People can submit an entry in hopes of winning this amazing prize by checking out the Live! With Kelly website.
