Tyra Banks, Kelly Ripa Search For 'America's Next Top Co-Host' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Kelly Ripa is searching for a new "Live!" (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) co-host to fill the massive void Regis Philbin left when he retired in November. In the past few weeks, she's cycled through prospective candidates ranging from Jerry Seinfeld to Neil Patrick Harris. On Monday, she enlisted the help of someone with extensive experience in widdling down multiple contenders vying for a single job: "America's Next Top Model" host Tyra Banks.

The ladies got together for a spoof video that they called "America's Next Top Co-Host," that featured them putting prospective male co-hosts through the "Top Model" paces. As NPH, Andy Cohen, Taye Diggs, Josh Groban, Michael Strahan and Jerry O'Connell strut their stuff on the runway, Tyra and Kelly sternly judged their every move. The skit ended with all of the contenders anxiously standing in line, waiting to get their portraits to see who was eliminated from contention.

Fortunately for everyone involved, none of the fictional contest's contestants spoiled the results on their Facebook page.
