I don’t have kids, so this is That’s my mom, actually, who got really into the reindeer game. it is, but this was one of the activities we had. I love that as I learn you have to keep a four year old busy minute after minute, in fact on a regular basis I definitely have to try this game we actually made. the um that inspires us that video inspires you to want to absolutely try it yeah I like cuckolding and everything is um so let’s talk I mean 19th year hosting Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rock and Eve uh at the air for five more hours five more hours every night what do you do to get energized and keep going?
So I used to eat a big meal before I used to have a barbecue before I went out because it’s just around the corner here and I realized we’re familiar I was so excited to get it right just the aroma excites me yeah and then I noticed halfway through I start to feel a bit tired, overly full and thirsty, so I saved the food for later, around 1:30 in the morning. dinner makes me hungry let’s run up and down the blocks here in times square stage by stage so it’s tea water and then a very late dinner wow that’s kind of like the grind and you need that energy because more than one million people will gather in Times Square. that’s what you expect to see the ball drop and that’s what we see on camera there, but what’s it like backstage for you?
Backstage can get hectic as we get closer to midnight, for example, this year Duran Duran is performing at a Times Square Weekend and then the ball is at the other end of Times Square and the million people seem to converge right on the medium yeah so we had to push our way through the crowd with the team to get there on time because if you miss the drop it’s kinda big like it’s the only segment you need to show up in is something you’re there for yeah yeah exactly wow i saw you on new year’s eve i mean this guy is running around and when we’ve been talking to you in the last hour asking how you’re preparing for this year how come you said the show is it gets bigger and bigger every year it really tells us about the recap what will we see on saturday night if i can include it all for three live countdowns to happen puerto rico times square billy porter is back in new orl eans for us.
