Ryan Seacrest

Idol's Ebola Monkey

4/26/2012 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A very sick Ryan Seacrest made it through "American Idol" last night, but in the process he may have infected every single person who shares the stage with him.

We broke the story -- Ryan came close to bailing on the show. He had a terrible stomach virus, was throwing up the night before and all day yesterday, and went through 2 IV bags in a matter of hours. He didn't make it to the rehearsal and Nigel Lythgoe was ready to step in.

Take a look at the video. He hugs and kisses Jennifer Lopez, hugs Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, puts his arm around Jessica and shakes her hand, puts his arm around Skylar, shakes Joshua's hand twice, puts his arm around Phillip and does the same with Hollie.

He's a real national hero for showing up to host a 'TV SHOW' he's paid $15 million a season for with a stomach virus. Might even be worthy of a Congressional medal of honor.

Get your head out of Ryan's ass, Harvey.

It is so pathetic the way Harvey goes on about this guy.

Selfish of him, but in his mind he thinks he is a God and that the show cannot go on without him.

There is a reason why clinics ask sick people to wear masks.

Ahem.

I'm assuming Ryan's doctor told him he had food poisoning rather than a contagious virus. If not, Ryan is a real jerk for exposing all of those people to the horror he experienced. Could anyone with a brain really do that?

He needs to spend the next week living with the Kardashian's loving touching and squeezing them.

This show is now so stupid to watch we all now by the way all 3 judges ran up to save Jessica she is the winner america does not really crown the winner it is all up to the producers. It is the same way with all theese shows Now with dancing with the stars the Judges now decide who goes home The voice the coaches decide who goes home the only reason they want america to vote and buy the I tunes because it puts money in the producers pocket


CONGRADULATIONS TO JESSICA YOU ARE THE NEW AMERICAN IDOL WE CAN NOW END THE SEASON SINCE WE KNOW SHE HAS ALREADY WON THE TITTLE. SO RYAN DONT COME TO WORK FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON STAY HOME AND GET BETTER SINCE JESSICA HAS NOW WON.

Ryan Seacrest is such a joke - made his money from z-list reality shows and the guy to thank for bringing us one of the trashiest families in history - the KarTRASHians.

Think it's a coincidence that he got so violently ill soon after the Kardashian deal was announced? Maybe God is exacting his revenge for that whole bunch selling their souls to the devil for fame and fortune.

I don't respect people who come around others sick. He's probably one of those trifling idiots who thinks he's heroic and deserved an award for trudging to work while infected with virus or bacteria. STAY YOUR SICK AZZ AT HOME!
