"He will be a terrific complement to [former Days of Our Lives star, Lisa], who is also incredibly charismatic and brings a wealth of fashion savvy and insight," O'Hara said.

In a statement, The Singing Bee host said he plans to make "the red carpet experience entertaining, spontaneous and most of all fun _ not only for those walking the red carpet, but also for the fans watching at home."
