Former 'Amercian Idol' co-host Brian Dunkleman to judge 'Regis & Kelly' competition

By Reality TV World staff, 03/06/2003 

Well gee, with "other opportunities" like this available to him, it's clear why Brian Dunkleman claims he opted not to return for "American Idol 2."

The AP reports that Regis Philbin has found a way to pass the time until co-host Kelly Ripa returns from maternity leave -- "Live With Regis and Kelly" has launched a talent search for a co-host that will culminate in the winner working as Philbin's partner on the April 16th edition of the talk show. According to the report, former "American Idol" co-host Brian Dunkleman will judge the entrants and come up with 10 finalists. Phone-in votes from viewers will determine the eventual winner, just like Fox's hit prime-time show.

The winner will also get a $10,000 contract with Buena Vista Television to work on possible TV projects and a one-year contract with talent agency N.S. Bienstock. No word on what Dunkleman gets out of it (beyond some additional humiliation.)
