Andy Cohen Teases Some Real Love Connections on the Dating Show Reboot
The #WWHL host talks about stepping into Chuck Woolery's shoes.
Andy Cohen is here to help lovelorn singles find the one. Our very own Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host will step out of the Clubhouse starting May 25 to host the 21st century reboot of the beloved '80s game show, Love Connection. And he's more than game to fill in for the show's original host, Chuck Woolery.
"So excited about Love Connection, just wrapped it and it's a lot of fun," he recently told The Daily Dish. "I didn't reach out to Chuck Woolery, but it was a lot of fun. We made some real love connections. Yeah, totally [exciting]."
As it turns out, Andy was actually a really big fan of the OG version of Love Connection, which may explain why he probably didn't have to think too hard about hosting the revival. "Major fan of the original. I remember watching it with my parents," he previously told Access Hollywood. "And so this is everything you love about the original, but we really have blown it into the 21st century, and it's fun. There's some really shocking twists that I think people will be very surprised by. I like getting awkward information out of people and I will stop at nothing to get the information."
And if we've learned anything about Andy from watching him on WWHL and hosting reunion specials, it's that he's not afraid to pry, as he previously teased to E! News. "I was a huge fan of the original Love Connection, and hosting the new version allows me to do one of the things I love most: meddling in people's personal lives," he said.
In addition to WWHL and Love Connection, you can catch Andy on Season 2 of Andy Cohen's Then & Now kicking off May 3 at 10/9c. Preview, below.
