Ryan Seacrest is the King of Reality TV

Ryan Seacrest is the only person who can Keep Up with the Kardashians, and thanks to the hit show, he was named the most powerful man in Reality TV.

Seacrest has topped the Hollywood Reporter’s fourth annual Reality Power List, beating out Simon Cowell for the number one stop. I can see Simon throwing a fit and ripping up some black t-shirts out of anger.

‘American Idol’ creator Simon Fuller said: “Ryan absolutely has his finger on the pulse because he’s talking to America every day through his radio show. He knows what people are thinking about, and as a producer that really gives him a leg up.
“He’s the unsung hero of ‘American Idol’. Ryan is one person I would not want to lose.”

Ryan added: “I work best inundated with things when it’s like raining information.”

Other noticeable names include ‘Jersey Shore’ producer SallyAnn Salsano at number 10, British chef Gordon Ramsay at 20 and Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner who appears on the list at number 50.
