host Ryan Seacrest
is uncomfortable watching episodes of American Idol Rewind
, a syndicated version of the popular reality show featuring episodes starting from its first season. It also features the former American Idol
host Brian Dunkleman who left the reality series to pursue other endeavors, as well as the three notable judges, Randy Jackson
, Paula Abdul
and Simon Cowell
Seacrest says, "I look back at it and I have a laugh and really enjoy the way we looked, the things that we said," Seacrest told the New York Post. "My hair and my clothes are embarrassing at times, I can't believe I went out of the house that way."
Although the host was embarrassed to see the videos, he admits that the beauty of it was the fact that they weren’t really sure of what they were doing when they started the program. And even though he gets a kick out of watching the previous episodes, he does not really have much time to spare since he’s swamped with work such as his radio show, America’s Top 40, E! News, and Paradise City, not to mention his hosting job on the sixth season of American Idol
Moreover, Seacrest expresses his delight on American Idol
. He told the Post, "I've been thinking about this for the last few days, we - Randy, Paula, Simon and me - have all really developed our roles on the show. Everybody knows what their role is, everybody does their job. We don't have to over-think anything, as a matter of fact we don't think about anything. We show up, we go live, we do our jobs, have a laugh and then go to dinner."
