Poor Poor Brian Dunkleman - Literally Poor Compared To Ryan Seacrest

Word is out today that Ryan Seacrest, the new Dick Clark, has signed a new 3-year deal with American Idol.  He will stay on as host for a reported $15 million per year.  This new super deal makes Seacrest the highest paid reality show host ever, by which they mean he gets paid more than Jeff Probst.  

I am pretty sure that there is no one else that would be anywhere near these guy's level, right?  Maybe the guy from The Bachelor?  He should get bonus money for having to step in at every rose ceremony and remind everyone that "this is the last rose" as if there were anybody in that room or in the viewing audience that didn't know it was the last rose.  I mean, really?!?  If they are going to make you look like a moron, they should compensate you for it.

There aren't too many people that even remember that Ryan Seacrest had a cohost on the first season of American Idol.  Back then no one knew who Ryan Seacrest was except people that listened to his local LA radio show, and probably his parents, but I'm not sure about that.  His cohost Brian Dunkleman was probably more famous that he was.  And yet, America fell in love with Mr. Seacrest, and America has no idea who Dunkleman is.

Sure Dunkleman tried to say that he quit.  He was taking a stand because the show treated contestants badly according to him, and the whole thing was overproduced and staged.  Ironically, back then it wasn't.  Maybe he saw what was coming?  Dunkleman, the comedic psychic.  Now available for children's birthday parties. Literally.

Truth is, Dunkleman sucked and Seacrest rocked.  Seacrest is an astute business man who now makes gazillions of dollars getting his hand into every money pot in the music and entertainment world.  Like I said earlier - the new Dick Clark.  I bet Dunkleman hates Seacrest.

Poor Brian Dunkleman.  Poor, poor Brian Dunkleman.  We remember you.
