Al Roker Smooches On TV

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Al Roker is using his lips for more than just talking on his new hosting gig.

The Emmy-winning Today show weatherman and reporter is getting some love on the set of his new show, Celebrity Family Feud, a revamp of the classic game show in which Roker plays host to big name celebrity families who battle it out for charity.

For hosting inspiration, Roker is looking to the show’s past and taking a cue from former Family Feud host Richard Dawson, who was notorious for locking lips with female contestants.

Roker is considering possibly puckering up himself.

He says, “You never know. I might start with a good, hearty handshake and go from there.”

Though lovely ladies like Kim Kardashian, Vivica A. Fox, and the Playboy gals from The Girls Next Door will be available to smooch, Roker has his eye on the huskier contestants.

He jokes, “I’m gonna change it up a little and maybe kiss Tikki Barber and Vincent Pastore.

Celebrity Family Feud premieres next Tuesday (Jun. 24) on NBC.
