After American Idol’s Ryan Seacrest Shared ‘Penis Panic’ Wardrobe Malfunction Story, His Stylist Chimed In

There is just something about live television that makes it so much more riskier than pre-recorded, even when it comes to the most practiced and polished TV personalities. For instance, American Idol has seen some wild things happen over the last two decades, from contestants abruptly dropping out of the competition to emotions getting the better of everone. The music-heavy series has also blessed us with its share of unplanned wardrobe malfunctions. Longtime host Ryan Seacrest was the latest victim of this ep-peen-demic, and it sparked enough attention that his stylist even spoke out about it.

During the Season 20 finale on May 22, Ryan Seacrest was advised he needed to make a quick change during a commercial break in regards to his underwear, because what he had on (or didn’t) was apparently too revealing. Viewers didn’t need to be super eagle-eyed to see what the issue was, either. Seacrest shared the story on Live With Kelly and Ryan! after the fact, saying things got frantic when it was clear viewers were getting an eyeful. In his words:

Apparently, America voted and said there was anatomy in the shot. There was just panic about it, and we changed it.
