OK, so it's a blatant way to promote local stations carrying "Live With Regis & Kelly," and to give the stations more reason to promote the daytime show. And it seems a way to get some easy guest co-hosts while R&K go on vacation.
In any case, Pete Kenworthy and Kimberly Gill are among the contenders in a "From Local to Live Co-Host for a Day Search." They're up against 18 other anchors -- nine men and nine women -- including, among others, Jeff Varner, one of the contestants on "Survivor: The Australian Outback." Five men and five women will be announced as co-hosts on Wednesday's show.
You can see videos of the contestants and vote here.
You can vote once today and once tomorrow, when the polls will close at 10 p.m.
You have to register on the site to vote, which is pretty simple. You also have to vote for 5 men and 5 women at this point, which makes no sense to me, especially if you only want to vote for your local contenders.
