Jenny McCarthy and Ryan Seacrest will once again host Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve tonight from Times Square in the tradition of the late, great Dick Clark. Seacrest will preside over the actual countdown to the ball drop in Times Square, while Jenny McCarthy will chat with people on the ground from all around the packed streets.
Billboard magazine caught up with the pair earlier this week, and asked them what is the strangest sight they’ve ever witnessed on New Year’s Eve. Both immediately agreed it was nude people.
“Usually the naked people,” Jenny McCarthy answered.
“Naked people are always crazy, especially when it’s zero degrees,” Ryan Seacrest added.
“And you know that they’re not drinking, because you can’t really drink out there. So, they’re being nuts sober!” McCarthy said.
“They’re having much more fun in real life,” Seacrest said.

Can you imagine being naked and running around in the freezing cold weather that typically graces New York City on New Year’s Eve? To many, just standing out there in a warm jacket, mittens, and a hat seems insane. Once again this year the temperature is plummeting. Even though the actual temperature reading may be in the 20s, the wind chill is expected to hit the very low teens. That’s cold enough for certain body parts to very quickly become frostbitten if not covered up quickly–just a warning for anyone thinking of running around naked tonight in Times Square.
If you do opt to remove your clothes and take a jaunt through Times Square, at least catch some of the amazing acts that will be on hand. Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, and Idina Menzel will all be performing in New York. If you’re naked in California, it won’t be quite so bad. You’ll get to see One Direction, Iggy Azalea, Meghan Trainor and Charli XCX. And you won’t freeze off any of your body parts.
Will you be checking out Jenny McCarthy and Ryan Seacrest tonight as we bid adieu to 2014?
